Leidos receives $12 million contract from DTRA
The single-award, cost-plus, fixed-fee task order includes a five-month base period of performance, two one-year options and a total contract value of $12 million if all the options are exercised. The order was awarded under a Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction (CWMD) Research and Technology Development contract. Leidos will conduct the work in San Diego and at Fort Belvoir, Va.
"Leidos is proud to support the Defense Threat Reduction Agency's CBRNE mission by developing tools to provide U.S. government agencies timely and actionable information critical to the planning and response to CBRNE events throughout the world," John Fratamico, the president of Leidos Group, said.
The DTRA provides the core technical, intellectual and operational support expertise for the DoD's efforts to counter threats posed by WMDs and CBRNEs. Leidos will provide the DTRA with simulation and modeling support for web-based joint collaboration CBRNE assessment tools for deliberative planning and assessments of CBRNE events. The tools will allow subject matter experts to collaborate and provide guidance for rapid response to CBRNE incidents.
Leidos seeks to address difficult challenges in engineering, health and national security through its science and technology solutions.
