Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory has won a potential 10-year, $4, 904, 853, 263 U.S. Navy for research, development and engineering work throughout the Defense Department.
The contract includes a five-year option for review and approval by the assistant Navy secretary for research, development and acquisition and the assistant defense secretary for research and evaluation, the Defense Department said Feb. 15.
The maximum ceiling amount for the sole-source, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract’s first five years is $2, 296, 583, 964 for up to 11, 964, 743 staff hours.
Pending approval, Johns Hopkins APL would provide 23, 929, 486 staff hours under the complete five-year option period.
R&D work will cover areas approved by the Pentagon such as:
- combat systems and guided missiles
- information technology
- simulation, modeling and operations analysis
- space science and engineering
- strategic systems test and evaluation
- submarine security and survivability
- theater air defense and power projection
Pentagon program offices may obligate funds for individual task orders within those areas, the department said.
