Jan 28/08: CSC Applied Technologies, LLC in Fort Worth, TX received a $25.5 million modification under previously awarded contract (N66604-05-C-1277) to support requirements for increased base operations at the Atlantic Undersea Test and Evaluation Center (AUTEC). AUTEC is a major range and test facility base providing both deep and shallow water naval test and training. This modification will support stepped up scheduling and conduct of test operations, plus administrative and clerical support in the business operations area, and additional overtime in base operations functions such as housekeeping, facilities maintenance, utilities, vehicle maintenance, and helicopter operations.
Work will be performed in Andros Island, Bahamas (81%); West Palm Beach, FL (18%); and Cape Canaveral, FL (1%), and work is expected to be completed by Mar. 2011. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The Naval Undersea Warfare Center Division in Newport, RI issued the contract.
Contract #N66604-05-C-1277 was actually the subject of controversy in a 2006 audit report.
