AIKEN, S.C. – Centerra-SRS, which provides security at the Savannah River Site, earned an overall “excellent” performance rating for the most recent evaluation period, Oct. 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018. The award fee determination scorecard allows the company to receive $2,996,997, or 94.75 percent, of the total award fee available of $3,163,057 for the six-month period.
Centerra-SRS personnel demonstrated an exceptional level of performance this period, meeting or exceeding most of the performance goals and objectives and supporting the site’s security posture at various SRS operating facilities, according to the scorecard.
During this performance period, Centerra-SRS executed the SRS security mission effectively and competently, demonstrated most notably by the efficient and safe return to normal operations after a 55-day strike by Protective Force (PF) employees. This included a comprehensive, well-orchestrated return-to-duty recovery plan that coordinated fitness-for-duty training, physical fitness tests, weapons qualifications, and other training requirements required for more than 200 striking PF members to return to work. Centerra-SRS management and support personnel accomplished this monumental feat efficiently, resulting in a smooth return to normal operations with no impact to site security or operations.
Effective emergency responses to numerous security and emergency situations were noted in the report, as was the contractor’s action to fill vacancies and new positions quickly. A significant improvement in safety statistics from the previous reporting period demonstrated the effectiveness of efforts to address an increase in recordable injuries in the previous period.
