Five to vie for counter-narcoterrorism work

The Defense Department has picked five companies for a five-year contract in support of DOD's counter-narcoterrorism activities. The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract could be worth up to $15 billion for the awardees.

The companies will provide equipment, material and services to DOD's Counter-Narcoterrorism Technology Program Office (CNTPO).

The companies are:
  • Raytheon Technical Services Co., a subsidiary of Raytheon Co.
  • Lockheed Martin Corp.
  • Northrop Grumman Corp.
  • Arinc Inc.
  • Blackwater USA

"Raytheon is committed to providing the right solutions to CNTPO in this critical mission of supporting the DOD, other government agencies and partner nations," said Tom Arnsmeyer, vice president of the Homeland Security Solutions product line of RTSC's Integrated Support Solutions business.

"We are honored to be sharing the CNTPO contract with these companies," said Blackwater spokeswoman Anne Tyrrell.

The CNTPO is based at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, Va.
