US$65 million contract awarded for radiological support services, funded in part by stimulus
Homeland Security Capital Corporation, a provider of specialized technology-based radiological, nuclear, environmental, disaster relief and security solutions to government and commercial customers, announced its environmental remediation subsidiary, Safety and Ecology Corporation (SEC) was awarded a contract, through a majority owned subsidiary called SEC RADCON Alliance LLC (SECRA). With an estimated total contract value of $65 million, awarded by Bechtel Jacobs Company, (BJC) the contract is to provide radiological and industrial hygiene services to support US Department of Energy (DoE) Oak Ridge Operations Office. Other members of SECRA include Dade Moeller & Associates and ARS International.
SEC, as the incumbent subcontractor, has performed this work for BJC, for over a decade. BJC holds the direct contract with DOE. Under the new contract, the team will continue to provide radiological control technicians (rct's) industrial hygiene technicians, health physics professionals and industrial hygienists in addition to providing a health physics and industrial hygiene instrumentation program in support of BJC's Environmental Management clean-up contract with the DOE Oak Ridge Operations Office.
"We appreciate the opportunity to continue supporting DOE's mission here in Oak Ridge, and we are excited about the added-value dimensions offered to BJC through our LLC,” said Jack Macrae, SECRA President.
The original contract awarded in 1999 to the SEC Radcon Alliance, was competitively re-bid. Work performed under the new subcontract includes supporting BJC's mission to close numerous facilities on behalf of DOE. Some scope is being funded by the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA). The period of performance is from now through December 2011, plus two six-month options. SEC is pleased to announce, as of Sept 6, the company has again exceeded 1 million hours without a significant injury and without a lost work day accident on the Radcon project. This milestone measurement captures 36 months of performance without a lost time accident and represents SEC's continued excellent culture in workplace safety and health.
"This is another example of our success in winning partially stimulus funded projects,” said Thomas McMillen, Chairman and CEO of HOMS.
