American Management Systems Inc. will continue program management for the U.S. Navy's Surface Mine Warfare programs under a delivery order worth up to $115 million over 12 years, officials of the Fairfax, Va., company announced today.
R.M. Vredenburg & Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of AMS, will perform the work. AMS bought Reston, Va., Vredenburg last August.
The new delivery order was awarded by the Navy's Naval Sea Systems Command under its Seaport contract, a multi-billion dollar, multiple-award vehicle awarded to Vredenburg and 20 other companies in 2001. The delivery order is worth $115 million if all options are exercised.
Vredenburg has provided professional support services to the Surface Mine Warfare program office for nearly three decades, said Capt. Terry Briggs, program manager of the Surface Warfare Program Office. The office manages more than 20 systems that are used to detect and destroy enemy sea mines, and also provides the Navy with an offensive mining capability.
AMS officials also announced today that Vredenburg will be integrated with AMS this month. After the integration, Chick Baboyian, president and chief executive officer of Vredenburg, will lead AMS's work for the Navy. The Navy is AMS's largest customer.
The new practice will combine Vredenburg's program management expertise with AMS's business management capabilities, offering end-to-end IT and business consulting support to the Navy, company officials said.
