Alion Science and Technology has won a three-year, $183 million contract modification with the U.S. Air Force to provide lifecycle acquisition support to the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force, Acquisition.
The company will also provide lifecycle acquisition support to the F-35 Lightning II Joint Program Management Office.
The goal of this modification is to allow for greater continuity across the spectrum of Air Force and F-35 acquisition operations, Alion said in a release.
The company will provide requirements analysis, acquisition strategy and program execution support under the Secretary of the Air Force Technical and Analytical Support contract, with the support ranging from database and enterprise architecture development to modeling, simulation and test and evaluation support, the company said.
“This contract brings a cost-effective and easily tailored workforce to support the full lifecycle of Air Force acquisition at the headquarters level, the F-35 Lightning II Joint Program Office and various other acquisition-related organizations,” said Rob Hirt, Alion senior vice president and manager of the Technology, Engineering and Operational Solutions Sector.
“Alion’s SAFTAS Team will also suggest business reengineering changes to streamline acquisition oversight activities,” he said.
