DOE Awards Savannah River Site Security Services Contract

Cincinnati – Today, the Office of Environmental Management (EM) awarded the Security Services contract at the Savannah River Site (SRS) near Aiken, South Carolina to the Centerra Group, LLC (Centerra) of Herndon, Virginia.  Centerra is a single-member LLC and is the current incumbent contractor. 

The Cost-Plus-Award-Fee contract will include a 5-year base period (inclusive of 60-day transition period) and two option periods of up to five 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 Centerra 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.   

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.  This contract will 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.

For more than 30 years, EM has remained focused on addressing the environmental legacy of nuclear weapons development and nuclear energy research that helped end World War II, win the Cold War and position the United States as a leader in clean nuclear energy. Collectively, EM is delivering results that are protecting the environment, supporting communities and enabling a concerted focus on safely completing the mission sooner and more efficiently.
