The U.S. Navy has awarded the Center for Disease Detection a potential $49 million contract for blood testing services that work to detect HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
The contract covers testing of active-duty and reserve Navy and U.S. Marine Corps military personnel as part of the Navy Bloodborne Infection Management Center requirements, the Defense Department said Wednesday.
NBIMC manages HIV and hepatitis testing programs and relevant policy development for the Navy and Marine Corps in support of mission readiness and the National Military Strategy.
The Naval Supply Systems Command’s Fleet Logistics Center in Norfolk, Virginia, awarded the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract through a competitive procurement using the Federal Business Opportunities website, DoD said.
The contract has a base period of 12 months ending April 2017 with four 12-month optional periods and could run through March 2022 if the Navy exercises all options.
DoD added that work will primarily be done in San Antonio, Texas.
The Navy will obligate $10,000 fiscal year 2016 defense health program funds for the contract’s minimum amount.
