Threat Reduction Agency seeks site survey support

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency is seeking contractor support for teams that will survey various locations deemed critical to emergency response in the event of nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction attacks, according to a pre-solicitation notice on the Federal Business Opportunities Web site.

DTRA's site survey teams comprise government, military and contractor personnel who conduct on-site assessments and evaluations of specified locations throughout the United States and overseas. When the surveys are completed, the teams present their findings in a site survey package that provides a comprehensive analysis of each location visited.

The completed survey packages are used for training and crisis management planning conducted in various scenarios by the Defense Department and other federal agencies such as the FBI or Homeland Security Department.

The agency's mission is to protect the United States and its allies from a wide range of weapons of mass destruction by helping not only to reduce and counter the threat, but also to mitigate the effects of such attacks.
