Serco to continue supporting US NESS

Posted 9 May 2018 · Add Comment

Serco has been named the sole winner on an Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (ID/IQ) contract to provide the US with life cycle sustainment, acquisition and integration support for Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (ATFP) Naval Electronic Surveillance Systems (NESS).

The five-year contract vehicle has a three-year base period and a two-year option period, with a ceiling value of US$232 million if the option years are exercised.

Under the contract, Serco will deliver technical services to the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), programme executive offices, other DoD agencies, the Department of Homeland Security, US Marine Corps and other government programmes. Serco has been performing equivalent work under predecessor contract vehicles since 2001, and has helped integrate more effective and efficient communications between federal and state and local government agencies and improve their ability to collectively respond to terrorism threats.



"Serco is proud of the base modernisation services we have been providing to the US Navy under this programme for the last 17 years," said Dave Dacquino (above), Serco's Chairman and CEO. "We have a team in place focused on delivering operational excellence in support of helping our nation secure our bases and detect and respond to terrorist threats."
