Cincinnati – Today, the Office of Environmental Management (EM) awarded the Security Services contract at the Savannah River Site (SRS) near Aiken, South Carolina to SRS Critical Infrastructure Security, LLC (SCIS) of Herndon, VA.
The Cost-Plus-Award-Fee contract will include a 5-year base period (inclusive of 60 day transition period) and potential award terms of up to 5 more years, for a total period of up to 10 years. The anticipated contract value is approximately $1 billion over the potential 10-year period of performance.
EM received three (3) proposals in response to the solicitation, all of which complied with the solicitation instructions and were evaluated for the new contract. Through a healthy and rigorous competition EM determined the SCIS proposal provided the best value to the Government considering Technical Approach, Key Personnel and Organization, Past Performance and Cost and Fee, resulting in a new contract with a highly capable security team at SRS.
SCIS is a Joint Venture LLC, that includes the following members: Securitas CIS, Inc., K2 Solutions, Inc., Spectra Tech, Inc. and System Studies & Simulation, Inc. (S3I) / Kachemak Bay Flying Service (KBFS). SCIS is also teaming with subcontractor OLH Inc.
The selected contractor will provide security functions in the areas of Program Management, Protective Force, Physical Protection, Information Security, Personnel Security, Law Enforcement, Aviation Operations and Material Transportation Security and Coordination. The objective of this contract is to effectively implement DOE, EM, and NNSA Safeguards and Security (S&S) program requirements, responsibilities, obligations and activities at SRS in compliance with Departmental policy. The S&S Program ensures that the Department efficiently and effectively meets all its obligations to protect Special Nuclear Material, other nuclear materials, classified matter, sensitive information, government property, and the safety and security of employees, contractors, and the general public.
The new contract resulting from this acquisition will replace the current security contract at SRS held by Centerra, under which the current option expires June 7, 2021.
