Serco Inc. will continue to help the Navy manage its hazardous waste disposal program under a five-year task order valued at approximately $66 million.
The Seaport contract task order calls for logistics support for the acquisition, management, issuance and disposal of HAZMAT products and chemicals for the Navy’s Hazardous Material Operations at the San Diego Fleet and Industrial Supply Center. Serco has been providing similar services to the center since 2002.
Under the task order, Serco will provide third-party logistics support in the form of timely and cost-effective procurement, storage, issue and delivery of HAZMAT products, company officials said.
Serco’s work on this task order also is designed to help minimize costs and protect the environment through material reuse, recycling, reutilization and spill prevention programs, they said.
The company will support 15 installations throughout the Navy’s Southwest Region.
The Seaport contract is the Navy’s platform for acquiring support services in 22 functional areas.
Serco Inc., of Vienna, Va., ranks No. 28 on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list of the largest federal government prime contractors.
