Sunik, an Akima company, has won a contract to provide operations and maintenance support services for the Agriculture Department’s Eastern Regional Research Center.
The $13.6 million deal will be carried out over five years.
The Eastern Regional Research Center focuses on solving problems with fundamental, applied and developmental research on agricultural commodities. It has six research units that help producers of agricultural commodities, handlers and processors of food and nonfood products, federal action and regulatory agencies and consumers.
“It is an honor to support a USDA facility with both historical significance and a critical mission to protect the welfare of American agriculture and all consumers,” said Scott Rauer, president of Akima’s Facilities Solutions Group. “This contract further validates our ongoing commitment to ensuring the operations of our nation’s most critical scientific and military facilities.”
