Up to $485M to 10 Contractors for US Army CBRNE Support
The US Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) awarded 10 indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts for CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive) support services at Edgewood Chemical Biological Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD.
ECBC is the USA’s principal research and development center for non-medical chemical and biological defense. The center develops technology in the areas of CBRNE detection, protection, and decontamination, and provides support over the entire lifecycle – from basic research through technology development, engineering design, equipment evaluation, product support, sustainment, field operations and disposal.
The 10 ID/IQ contracts have a 5-year period of performance and a total value of $485 million for all awardees. Work will be performed at ECBC facilities on Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, at contractor offices, and at other customer sites as required.
The winners of the 10 contracts are:
- Batelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, OH (W911SR-10-D-0009)
- Booz Allen Hamilton in McLean, VA (W911SR-10-D-0006)

Each contract had an initial value of $25,000. Under the contracts, the companies will provide engineering, research and technology, and program and integration support services to ECBC and other customers, including the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense (JPEOCBD), the US Army Chemical Materials Agency (CMA), the Assembled Chemical Weapons Assessment (ACWA) program manager, the 20th Support Command, as well as the US Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services and the FBI.
The contracts will give RDECOM, ECBC and client organizations the ability to
acquire a range of contract support from basic laboratory research through CBRNE
defense systems design acquisition, engineering, development and testing. The new vehicle is designed to replace 2 existing contract vehicles [pdf] and has the potential to replace others in the CBRNE community. Chamber release | SAIC release | Teledyne release
