The Energy Department has awarded Leidos a deal to support research for the National Energy Technology Laboratory. The single-award, cost-plus-award-fee contract has a 3-year base period of performance with two 2-year option periods and a final 3-year option period. The potential 10-year contract is valued at $364.7 million.
Under the contract, Leidos will provide scientific and engineering personnel, facilities, equipment, materials, supplies and services to support technology-based energy research, development and demonstrations.
The company will also lead a team that includes subcontractors, universities and small businesses to provide logistical and research support, business development, financial management and research execution. The contract supports efforts aimed at speeding up the development of reliable, clean, efficient energy systems.
“Leidos and its partners have more than 100 years of combined experience providing scientific and engineering support to the federal government,” said Angie Heise, Leidos Civil Group president. “We will leverage that experience as we work with the Department of Energy to continuously improve research efforts at the NETL and help them deliver on their critical mission.”
