Share:

The United
States Department of Energy
has awarded the team of Leidos
and Battelle
a $364.7 million Research Support Services (RSS) contract at the National
Energy Technology Laboratory
(NETL). The award was conferred on June
25, and full operational control for work at the lab, located in Albany,
OR, Morgantown, WV and Pittsburgh, PA, will be assumed Dec. 31, 2018,
when the current contract held by AECOM expires.

The RSS contract comprises personnel, facilities, equipment, materials,
supplies, and services in support of the national lab. The National
Energy Technology Lab plays a role in protecting the environment and
enhancing the nation's energy independence as it performs basic and
applied energy research as well as technology development for coal,
natural gas and oil to provide clean, reliable and affordable energy.

Battelle's role, as a major subcontractor to Leidos, includes membership
on the Leidos Research Support Team (LRST) leadership team for the RSS
program, providing on-site staff for logistical and research support,
business development, financial management and research.

"This is exciting for our organization," said Mike Janus, Vice President
and General Manager of Battelle's Environment and Infrastructure
business line. "It allows us to continue to do important energy research
and further support the Department of Energy."

The single-award, cost-plus-award-fee contract has a three-year base
period of performance with 2 two-year option periods and a final
three-year option period. The potential 10-year contract has a total
dollar value of $364.7 million.
