WASHINGTON — The US government has OK’d a $1.7 billion infrastructure project in Kuwait, the Pentagon announced Monday.

“The Government of Kuwait has requested a possible sale for the design, construction, procurement of medical, non-medical, and information technology equipment, and operation and maintenance for the Kuwait Armed Forces Hospital,” the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), the arm of the Pentagon that manages foreign military sales, said in a statement.

The US Army Corps of Engineers would oversee the effort and provide project management, engineering, planning, design, acquisition, contract administration, construction management and other technical services for construction of facilities and infrastructure for the hospital, DSCA said.

The project also includes a new utilities plant, access roads to the new complex to the existing Armed Forces Hospital.

“The facility scope of work is similar to other facilities built in the past by the US Army Corps of Engineers in other Middle Eastern countries,” the DSCA notice states.■
