The Naval Sea Systems Command has extended its contract with Alion Science and Technology to provide acquisition management support for its Program Executive Office Ships Acquisition Management directorate.
The Navy used an optional one-year extension on the contract, which could ultimately run five years and bring in up to $33 million to the McLean, Va.-based company. The one-year option alone will be worth about $5.6 million, according to company officials. It ends June 6, 2008.
The contract applies to the directorate's PEO Ships acquisition management project planning and financial execution; government-furnished equipment acquisition, as well as production, delivery and configuration management; and business and financial planning.
Subcontractors on the program include the Columbia Group, Northrop Grumman Corp. and Delta Resources Inc.
Alion's work under this contract supports several Navy combat system acquisition efforts and the Egyptian fast missile craft programs.
