TASC wins $40.5M Navy contract for cost estimating

Services to support better decision making

TASC Inc. will provide cost-estimating services to the Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command under a $40.5 million contract.

The contract has a base of one-year and two option years and two award-term years for a total of five years.

The services will help SPAWAR develop business and investment strategies “to strengthen the Navy’s information dominance capability,” said Tom Kilcline, vice president of TASC’s defense business unit.

For the contract TASC has put together a team that includes Telecote Research, Kalman and Co., Project Time & Cost, Cask Technology, Level 4 Ventures and Programmatics Engineering Group Inc.

“Our goal is to give senior leaders the information they need to make credible and defensible financial decisions that will significantly advance SPAWAR’s mission objectives and optimize its systems investments,” said Scott Heefner, vice president of TASC’s Financial and Business Analytics Center of Excellence.’

The Navy has to balance conflicting demands of growing performance demands and shrinking budgets to be successful and affordable, Heefner said.
