Earlier today, ManTech International announced that it has received a contract from the Department of Homeland Security that could be worth up to $135 million. The contract has one base years and four option years.
Under the terms of the contract, ManTech agreed to support the Department of Homeland Security’s national protection and programs directorate office of infrastructure protection, which works to prevent, deter, neutralize or mitigate efforts by terrorists to destroy or otherwise incapacitate infrastructures. The Fairfax-based company will specifically support contingency planning, incident response, training and exercises, and other areas.
“DHS’s charter, to protect our nation’s critical infrastructure components such as electric power, food, drinking water, telecommunications, transportation systems, chemical facilities and other resources, is a complex mission, ” ManTech president and COO Larry Prior said. “DHS must identify and analyze threats, coordinate with government and private sector organizations and employ risk mitigation efforts encompassing readiness and incidence response.”
