VSE Retains US Naval Command 5-Year, $1.5 Bln Contract After GAO Denies Protest

VSE Corp. (VSEC: Quote) said that its GLOBAL Division has retained a one-year $277 million cost-plus-award-fee, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract by the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command as a result of the U.S. Government Accountability Office or GAO having denied a protest to the award of the contract to VSE.

VSE originally announced the award on October 3rd, 2011 prior to the protest. VSE said that its performance of the awarded contract can now proceed.

The five-year maximum potential $1.5 billion contract is for continuous lifecycle support of naval vessels bought, sold, or otherwise transferred to Foreign Military Sales customers through the International Fleet Support Program.

VSE noted that it will lead its Naval Ship Transfer and Repair team with services to foreign customers and allies to include design, configuration management, field engineering, maintenance planning, maintenance, spare parts support, training, casualty, and depot-level repair.
