Battelle has won a potential $15 million contract contract option to help the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps implement technology and develop green remediation practices for environmental services programs.
This modification exercises the second option under a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract with the Naval Facilities Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center and increases the contract’s total value to $45 million, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
The nonprofit research and development institution will also test and evaluate technologies and perform R&D work at Navy and Marine Corps locations and for other federal government organizations.
Battelle will also support programs under the Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design initiative and climate change programs.
The Navy is allocating three sources of fiscal year funds for the project:
- operation and maintenance
- working capital funds
- Base Realignment and Closure
