Alion shores up Navy modeling and simulation services
Five-year award could be worth almost $49 million
Alion Science and Technology Corp. is assisting the Navy with modeling and simulation support under a five-year contract that could be worth as much as $48.8 million.
Under the terms of the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, Alion will provide engineering and technical services to support program management, systems engineering, strategic planning and policy.
The contractor will also provide modeling and simulation software development, support, logistics and training, according to a Defense Department announcement.
Work will be performed in Norfolk, Va., and Charleston, S.C., and is initially expected to be completed by July 2010. If all options are exercised, the work could continue until July 2014.
The contract was competitively procured with an unlimited number of proposals solicited and one offer received via the Federal Business Opportunities Web site and the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command’s E-Commerce site.
The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Atlantic is the contracting activity.
Alion, of McLean, Va., ranks No. 39 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
