Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
Rebecca R. Rubin, President and CEO of Marstel-Day, LLC, an award winning environmental consulting firm, announced that Marstel-Day has been awarded a Firm Fixed Price (FFP) contract by the Army Contracting Command-New Jersey (ACC-NJ) for contractor support to the Army Regional Environmental and Energy Offices (REEO), Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy, and Environment. The award includes a base year, with the option to extend the contract for two additional years, extending through January 2016. The contract is to provide environmental services at the Army's four REEO regional offices, including: REEO - Northern (REEO-N), located at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland; REEO - Southern (REEO-S), located in Atlanta, Georgia; REEO - Central (REEO-C), located in Kansas City, Missouri; and REEO - Western (REEO-W), in Denver, Colorado.
Rubin stated: "Marstel-Day's support for the Army REEO program is consistent with our long-standing support on environmental and conservation issues for DoD and the services and will provide an opportunity for Marstel-Day to be even more at the forefront of legislative, regulatory, and regional initiatives through our involvement in this high visibility program."
Marstel-Day teamed with Plexus Scientific Corporation on this important bid because of its long professional working relationships with members of the Plexus staff, and because members of both firms bring a history of demonstrated successes to Army REEO program. A combination of Marstel-Day and Plexus employees will staff the Army REEO program at the four offices and from reach-back positions in the two companies..
The Army's REEO Program is part of the larger Department of Defense (DoD) Regional Environmental Coordination (REC) Program, which began back in 1995 to address the need for closer environmental coordination among the services and with other agencies at the state and regional levels.
The REEOs are a key link in the communication process among the military services, the states, and federal regulators. The mission of the REEOs is to fulfill the responsibilities of the DoD REC Program, share information on military requirements with state legislators, federal and state regulators, and nongovernmental organizations that will help to enable the conduct of activities on installations required to build readiness to execute the Army's global mission.
Another mission of the Army's REEO program is to conduct strategic communication for the purpose of promoting greater understanding of the Army's commitment to sustainable practices and energy security. The Army REEOs are charged with knowing and understanding the dynamics of state and regional environmental and energy issues and the needs of the installations in their regions. The majority of REEO efforts focus on various state laws and regulations, policies, guidelines, and procedures that may impact the Army environmental and energy programs, compatible land use and broader mission sustainability issues.
