Parsons Corporation Awarded $53 Million Task Order by Defense Threat Reduction Agency
Parsons Corporation, a leading disruptive technology provider in the national security and global infrastructure markets, has announced that it has been awarded a $53 million task order by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA). The task order falls under the Assessment, Exercise, Modeling and Simulation, and Support (AEMSS) indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) multiple award task order contract (MATOC).
The task order, which has a ceiling value of $53 million, is for the International Counterproliferation Program (ICP) and Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI). This new work for Parsons consists of a one-year base period and four one-year option periods. Under this contract, Parsons will provide training, equipment, and subsequent maintenance to DTRA. The company’s solutions aim to enhance partner nation capacity in preventing proliferation attempts by building capabilities to detect, interdict, and recover weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and related items at land, air, and maritime ports of entry.
Jon Moretta, President of Engineered Systems for Parsons, expressed his enthusiasm about the award, stating, “Through our global security solutions, we empower our customers to counter and mitigate vulnerabilities and threats. This award provides us the opportunity to expand our role in advancing DTRA’s mission to prevent, reduce, and counter WMD and emerging threats to global security. We’re honored to continue our support of the agency as part of our commitment to making the world a safer place.”
DTRA’s mission includes providing solutions that enable the United States and international partners to deter strategic attacks and prevail against WMD-armed adversaries in crisis and conflict. The ICP, in collaboration with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security, focuses on providing WMD detection, interdiction, and investigation training to enhance the law enforcement structures of partner nations. The PSI is a global effort aimed at stopping the trafficking of WMD, their delivery systems, and related materials to and from states and non-state actors of proliferation concern.
This task order marks Parsons’ second under the AEMSS IDIQ MATOC and further strengthens the company’s relationship with DTRA. In July, Parsons announced a $170 million task order to support DOD and DTRA efforts in conducting vulnerability assessments, technical support projects, design reviews, and analyses.
