URS Federal Services (NYSE: URS) has won a potential $56.3 million U.S. Navy contract to test and certify systems supporting the branch’s command, control, communications, collaboration, computers and intelligence operations.
The Defense Department said the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract contains one option period that would yield the full contract value.
The contract also contains firm-fixed-price provisions.
The company received the award through a competitive process via the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center’s e-commerce and Federal Business Opportunities websites.
The company will also certify systems involving nuclear command, control and communication.
The company will assess systems and modernize equipment installed in SSN 74, SSN 21, SSN 688/I, SSBN 726 and SSGN-class submarines.
Work will also support submarine operating authority shore facilities.
Fifty-seven percent of the work will occur in Norfolk, Va., and the remainder in Groton, Conn. and Honolulu.
The Pentagon expects work to finish by April 2013 and work could continue to April 2014 if the Navy exercises the contract option.
SPAWAR Atlantic in Charleston, S.C. is the contracting activity.
