Carlyle's R2-G3 Winners: ARINC & BAH

Two affiliates of The Carlyle Group, Booz Allen Hamilton (BAH) and ARINC, will help modernize the U.S. Army. BAH won a spot in 2009, while ARINC just received a prime contract.

Carlyle is taking Booz public and shopping ARINC. Will Uncle Sam help The Carlyle Group get better prices? We'll see.

Update: Carlyle's divisions have competition from URS, which also was awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract by the Department of Defense (DoD) to support the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Command's (CECOM) Rapid Response Third Generation (R23G) program. Senator Bill Frist sits on the board of URS.
