DynCorp International c-enˈdaɪn.kɔrp

is a United States-based global government services contractor. Begun as an aviation company, the company now also provides air operations support, training and mentoring, international development, intelligence training and support, contingency operations, security, and operations and maintenance of land vehicles. DynCorp receives more than 96% of its more than $3 billion in annual revenues from the US federal government.

The corporate headquarters are in unincorporated area, Fairfax County, Virginia, in the Falls Church, Virginia area." However, substantially all of the company's contracts are managed out of its office at Alliance Airport in Fort Worth, Texas.

The company has provided services for the U.S. military in several theaters, including Bolivia, Bosnia, Somalia, Angola, Haiti, Colombia, Kosovo and Kuwait. DynCorp International also provided much of the security for Afghan interim president Hamid Karzai's presidential guard and trains much of Afghanistan's and Iraq's fledgling police force. DynCorp was also hired to assist recovery in Louisiana and neighboring areas after Hurricane Katrina.

DynCorp and the Department of State have been criticized by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGAR) for not properly accounting for $1.2 billion in contract task orders authorized by the State Department to be used to train Iraqi police, although the SIGIR noted that “there’s no indication DynCorp has misspent any” of the funds for the Iraqi police training. DynCorp has held one contract on every round of competition since receiving the first Contract Field Teams contract in 1951. DynCorp won the LOGCAP II contract and is one of three contract holders on the current LOGCAP IV contract.
