QinetiQ North America has been awarded a task order by the U.S. Marine Corps, worth $7.4 million over a one-year base period with two one-year options.
The contract was awarded under the MARCORSYSCOM’s Commercial Enterprise Omnibus Support Services Blanket Purchase Agreement.
QinetiQ NA will provide engineering, acquisition, logistics and programmatic support services across virtually all Ground Combat Element and MAGTF-level command and control programs fielded by the Marine Corps.
“We have the right team, with experience in engineering and acquisition ‘blocking and tackling’ and operational perspective needed to help program managers for MC2S and DFSA put relevant and timely command and control capabilities into the hands of our Marines,” said Mike Berigan, senior vice president of QinetiQ North America.
Berigan added QinetiQ is the highest provider of engineering and scientific support services to MARCORSYSCOM and the work for the new task order will take place in Quantico and Stafford, Va., with completion of “base” tasks scheduled for December 2011.
