Serco Inc. has been awarded a task order on the Seaport contract with the U.S. Navy’s Fleet and Industrial Supply Center San Diego (FISCSD) Hazardous Material (HAZMAT) Operations that could total $66 million, the company announced on Tuesday.
The contract, which has a one-year base period with four one-year options, obligates Serco to provide logistical support for acquisition, management, issuance and disposal of HAZMAT products and chemicals. More specifically, Serco will focus on supporting the effort for timely and cost effective procurement, storage, issue and delivery of HAZMAT products, in addition to helping minimize costs while protecting the environment through various recycling and reuse programs.
Serco’s VP of Navy Logistics Earl Eaton equated the awarding of the contract as confirmation of Serco’s effectiveness in performing these duties.
“We are excited to have been awarded the opportunity to continue supporting the U.S. Navy, ” he said. “This win demonstrates Serco’s ability to provide high-quality, cost effective, HAZMAT material management solutions that optimize material availability and support FISCSD’s initiatives to achieve warfighter mission readiness.”
The contract award also serves to speak to the quality of Serco’s in the past, as the company has provided similar services to the FISCSD for seven years. Now, 15 more installations throughout the Navy’s Southwest region will receive its support.
The Seaport contract is the U.S. Navy’s platform for acquiring support services in 22 functional areas.
