NNSA Awards Nevada National Security Site Management & Operating Contract to NVS3T

Contract Award Provides Best Value to the Government and Workforce Stability for a Decade

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) announced today it has awarded Nevada Site Science Support and Technologies Corporation, LLC (NVS3T) with the management and operating contract for the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) near Las Vegas, NV. NVS3T is a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Integrated Technology, LLC. Fluor Federal Services, Inc. and Longenecker and Associates, Inc. will support NVS3T in the performance of this contract.

NNSA conducted a full and open competition for the follow-on NNSS M&O contract. The contract was awarded to NVS3T because its proposal was determined to be the best value to the government. The award is valued at $5 billion over 10 years if all options are exercised.

“The NNSS M&O contract generated an unprecedented level of interest from industry. Robust competition ensures that NNSA attracts world-class talent from the commercial sector in managing and operating NNSS,” said Lt. Gen. Frank G. Klotz (ret.), Under Secretary for Nuclear Security and NNSA Administrator. “The response to the competition also demonstrated that the improvements made to streamline NNSA’s acquisitions process are making a difference.”

The 1,360-square mile NNSS is an experimental testing facility and training ground supporting a variety of nuclear nonproliferation and advanced-technology missions vital to national security. NNSS contributes to the safety, reliability, and security of the nuclear weapons stockpile through scientific experiments supporting the science-based Stockpile Stewardship Program (SSP). NNSS also provides radiological/nuclear emergency response capabilities and training, and—as a former nuclear test site—also serves as a major center for research and development advancing international nuclear monitoring and verification capabilities.

The current M&O contract for NNSS will be extended beyond its original expiration date of September 30, 2016, in order to allow for a full four month transition period, which will provide stability for the workforce employed under the current contract and efficient continuity of operations for NNSA’s vital missions performed there.
