Akima subsidiary RiverTech has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Coast Guard to provide technical and administrative support at the USCG National Maritime Center in Martinsburg, West Virginia.
The contract has a value of $7.6 million over three years, if all options are exercised.
“Akima remains a committed partner of both the Coast Guard and the National Maritime Center,” said Duncan Greene, president of Akima’s Mission Systems, Engineering and Technology Group.
“We are proud to continue our support to the NMC delivering quality services in support of U.S. Coast Guard and commercial mariner records maintenance modernization initiatives.”
The contract was awarded under the OASIS Small Business indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity Pool 1 contract.
RiverTech will support the National Maritime Center’s entire maritime credentialing process — including receiving applications and supporting documentation from applicants, evaluating the applications against documented standards, and issuing appropriate credentials and medical certificates or denying an application.
The National Maritime Center is the Merchant Mariner Credentialing Authority for the USCG under the auspices of the Homeland Security Department. Its mission is to issue credentials to fully qualified mariners in the U.S. maritime jurisdiction.
