The transition took effect Sunday night at 11:00 p.m. Eastern time and National Strategic Protective Services holds a potential five-year protective force services contract in Oak Ridge, NSPS said Monday.
DOE announced the potential $181 million contract award in January and small business Santa Fe Protective Services holds a subcontract for the program.
Greg McDowell, general manager at NSPS, said all staff members from the incumbent protective force at Oak Ridge have joined the NSPS team.
“The protective force services contract will be managed from the local NSPS office in Oak Ridge and we look forward to playing an active role within the community,” said Ignacio Balderas, NSPS president.
NSPS will be responsible for securing the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, East Tennessee Technology Park, Joe L. Evins Federal Building and a portion of the Oak Ridge Reservation.
