The Energy Department‘s National Nuclear Security Administration has awarded separate contracts for the operations and maintenance as well as security of theÂ Nevada National Security Site near Las Vegas.
A joint venture ofÂ HoneywellÂ (NYSE: HON), Jacobs Engineering Group (NYSE: JEC) and Huntington Ingalls Industries‘ (NYSE: HII) Stoller Newport News Nuclear division has won the potential 10-year, $5 billion contract to operate and manage the site, NNSA said May 12.
The Mission Support and Test ServicesÂ JV secured the contract following aÂ full and open competition that included evaluation criteria such asÂ past performance, proposed management, key personnel, small business utilization and cost, the agency added.
The contract originally awarded to Nevada Site Science Support and TechnologiesÂ in 2016Â was revoked due toÂ NVS3T’s failure to inform NNSA that it was acquired by Leidos Holdings (NYSE: LDOS) after the latter’s merger with Lockheed Martin‘s (NYSE: LMT) government information technology and services businesses.
NNSA also awardedÂ Day & Zimmermann‘s SOC subsidiary a contract toÂ carry outÂ protective force services for the Nevada site.
SOC said Friday it will work with small business subcontractors Longenecker & Associates, Protection Strategies and MCH Consulting Services under the contract.
Nye County, Nevada-based NNSS worksÂ to supportÂ scientific experiments and nuclear emergency response training to help secure the U.S. nuclear weapons stockpile.
