Serco takes $131M Navy contract from Leidos

Serco Inc. has weathered a protest challenge from incumbent Leidos to take a $131 million contract to support the Naval Facilities Engineering Command.

The company won the contract in December, but the win was challenged by Leidos, who claimed that Serco had an organizational conflict of interest.

The Navy pulled back the award in early February to take a look at the claim. It later re-awarded the contract to Serco.

No comment from Leidos on any other actions it may take now.

The contract supports the Naval Facilities Engineering Command’s command, control, communications, computers and intelligence systems at locations around the globe. The contract has options that bring the term to a total of five years.

Among the services Serco will provide are preventative and corrective maintenance, information assurance, asset management, technical systems updates, service call resolution and configuration management.

As a new contract, Serco expects to hire 60 new technicians who will work at Navy bases around the world.

Serco Chairman and CEO Dan Allen said the company relied on its experience with the Navy to win the award.

The company has been providing similar sustainment support work for over 13 years with the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command.

Leidos won the incumbent contract in 2013, and it was valued at $97.8 million according to Deltek.
