Serco Inc. will provide program management, information technology and third-party logistics support for the Navy’s hazardous materials management system under a 42-month contract that could be worth as much as $84 million.
The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract with the Navy’s Commander, Fleet and Industrial Supply Centers calls for Serco to assist in the implementation of the Consolidated Hazardous Material Reutilization and Inventory Management Program known as CHRIMP.
The single award also requires Serco to provide logistical support for procurement, management, issuance and disposal of Hazmat products and chemicals for the Hazardous Material Control and Management program, according to a company announcement today.
The Hazmat support on shore and at sea includes company technicians in fleet concentration areas for shipboard support, maintenance of the Hazmat IT solution, and operation of the Hazmat supply chain.
Serco has been providing similar services to the Navy since 1998, the announcement said.
The recompete contract has a six-month base period with three one-year option periods.
Serco Inc., of Reston, Va., ranks No. 28
on Washington Technology’s 2009 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
