Project Performance Co. will continue to operate and enhance the Emergency Response Data System for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission under a new five-year, $4.5 million contract.
PPC has managed the system since 2006 and is using software from OSIsoft Inc.
The system gives federal and state emergency response staff access to information needed for nuclear plant emergencies and support for emergency response drills.
ERDS lets users access, analyze and assess situational awareness data for assets in near real time, the company said.
“This contract award can be attributed to PPC’s long-standing support of this mission critical system and our diligence in offering new technology and expertise to ensure it stays secure and continues to provide essential emergency response services,” said PPC CEO Paul Strasser.
The win is also part of the company’s strategy to expand its work in the energy and environmental field by providing tools that facilitate a common information sharing environment that improves situational awareness and the protection of critical infrastructure and the safety of communities, he said.
Some of the work PPC and OSIsoft will perform includes program management, operations and maintenance, cybersecurity, software development, as well as drills and exercise support.
