Parsons Corp. has been awarded a task order to provide COVID-19 testing solutions at Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities nationwide.
The award includes a 1-year base and two 1-year option periods, for a potential total value of more than $100 million.
“As we continue to battle the pandemic, testing availability is a crucial component to helping DHS fulfill its mission of securing the nation from threats, and keeping people safe by helping detect and slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus,” said Jon Moretta, president of engineered systems for Parsons.
Under the contract, Parsons will leverage its DetectWise solution to supply emergency use authorized, portable, rapid molecular and rapid antigen test kits to DHS, as well as logistics, coordination and training support.
“We are proud to provide our biosurveillance knowledge to the Department, leveraging our industry-leading resources, capabilities, and expertise as we work with DHS and organizations around the world to improve disease surveillance, monitoring, and detection; public health and medical situational awareness; and research, development, testing, and evaluation,” Moretta said.
This task order was issued under the DHS COVID-19 Testing Solutions indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity, which Parsons was awarded a contract for in November 2020.
