USA: Modification to Previously Awarded Contract for URS

URS Federal Technical Services, Germantown Md., is being awarded a $21,977,441 cost-plus fixed-fee modification to previously awarded contract, thus exercising previously negotiated options and providing incremental funding for professional support services to Team Submarine in support of Towed Array Systems, associated component systems, and Hull Sensor Systems.

URS Federal Technical Services, will provide professional support services in the areas of program analysis, development, control and monitoring, in addition to  administration, communication and human resources. Moreover, the contract award stipulates provision of support services to finance along with technical and IT support, including life cycle support.

Work will be performed in Washington, D.C., and is expected to be completed by September 2012.

The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.

Team Submarine is an amalgamation of the Program Executive Office, Submarines (PEO SUB), the Deputy Commander, Undersea Warfare (NAVSEA 07) and the Deputy Commander, Undersea Technology (NAVSEA 073). The Team Submarine concept unifies once diverse submarine-related commands and activities into a single “submarine-centric” organization with the goal of eliminating traditional “stovepipe” structures and processes that created impediments and inefficiencies in the submarine research, development, acquisition, and maintenance communities.
