KD Analytical (KDA) announced today that it has been selected, in partnership with prime contractor Government Scientific Source (GSS), to support the General Services Administration’s multi-million dollar indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to provide chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNe) detection and protection equipment and sustainment for the Joint Product Manager Consequence Management (JPdM-CM) under Joint Program Executive Office, Chemical Biological Defense (JPEO-CBD).
The contract is expected to have a maximum combined IDIQ ceiling value of $500 million and a five-year period of performance including option years. KD Analytical and Government Scientific Source will be eligible to compete for task orders until the shared ceiling is reached.
Under the contract, KD Analytical will provide maintenance, technical support, and training for commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) CBRNe detection and protection tasks in support of the JPdM-CM mission for non-medical CBRNe equipment.
KD Analytical Vice President, Patrick Dempsey said, “Teaming with GSS allows KD Analytical to provide JPEO-CBD with a complete sustainment solution for this critical CBRNe equipment. GSS has proven expertise in procurement, warehousing and contract vehicles, while KDA provides expertise in training and maintenance management of the very same equipment set.”
The JPdM CM is one of several sub-organizations under JPEO-CBD tasked to provide COTS CBRNe equipment that directly detects, identifies, monitors, and protects individuals from the effects of CBRNe contamination and enhances their capability to assess, detect, identify and mitigate at a CBRNe or WMD incident. The purpose of this IDIQ contract is to service the requirements for the JPEO-CBD office for the purchase of CBRNe equipment.
