US-based Serco has secured a new contract to deliver lifecycle sustainment, acquisition and integration support for the US Navy’s anti-terrorism / force protection (ATFP) naval electronic surveillance systems (NESS).
The company has been selected as the sole winner of the indefinite-delivery / indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, which features a total ceiling value of $232m if all option years are exercised.
The new contract has a base performance period of three years with an additional two-year option.
Serco is set to provide technical services to the US Navy’s Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) under the deal, as well as offer support to programme executive offices, other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, the Department of Homeland Security, the US Marine Corps (USMC) and various additional government programmes.
The company has been carrying out similar work under earlier contract vehicles since 2001, in addition to assisting the integration of improved and effective communications between federal, state and local government agencies, and enhancing their ability to collectively respond to terrorism threats.
Serco chairman and chief executive officer Dave Dacquino said: “Serco is proud of the base modernisation services we have been providing to the US Navy under this programme for the last 17 years.
“We have a team in place focused on delivering operational excellence in support of helping our nation secure our bases, and detect and respond to terrorist threats.”
Serco is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Serco Group, a $4bn international business that is primarily focused on transforming government and public services worldwide.
The company is headquartered in Herndon, Virginia.
