Force 3, delivering innovative data center, collaboration solutions and security solutions, today announced that the company is part of a team awarded a contract with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for the Maintenance, Operation, and Modernization (MOM) program. Force 3’s teaming partner, Lockheed Martin, negotiated for one of the program’s four functional areas with an estimated Force 3 value of $18 million.
“Through our partnership with Lockheed Martin we’re excited to offer our support services for the NRC,” Force 3 Senior Vice President of Federal Services Trevia Martin said. “In conjunction with this program, the MOM contract will allow Force 3 to bring additional solutions to the NRC to help the agency meet its technology goals.”
Set to begin in September 2011, the NRC MOM contract will carry a principal of $1.8 million for services provided by Force 3 in the first year. From there, an option of an additional 9 years could make the contract worth $18 million over the span of the agreement.
The NRC MOM program was broken out into four functional areas. Functional Area 4 specifically set aside for small business opportunities. Force 3 will provide maintenance and operation support for approximately 100 legacy NRC application systems.
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security company that employs about 126,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation's 2010 sales from continuing operations were $45.8 billion.
