TASC to Focus on WMD Contingency Planning under $97M DTRA Deal

The $97 million U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency ID/IQ  awarded last week to TASC will see the firm provide advisory and assistance services to the Combat Support and Nuclear Support Directorates of the DTRA Operations Enterprise.  The deal carries a five year term.

“Possession of WMD and nuclear capability by hostile nations and terrorists is one of the greatest threats to the United States, ” Pamela Drew, senior vice president of Enterprise Solutions said.  “TASC has supported DTRA and its predecessors for nearly 40 years.  This long history positions TASC well to continue to provide DTRA and the nation with the best possible CBRNE program support.”

The firm will focus on contingency planning for weapons of mass destruction and the safety, security and effectiveness of the U.S. nuclear deterrent.
