Cubic Defense Applications, Inc. (CAI) is being award a sole source contract by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) for Program Management, Planning, Execution and Evaluation of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear Preparedness Program (CP2).
This is a follow-on contract for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) preparedness efforts, exercise support, and evaluation services of the existing processes and procedures required to respond to accidents/incidents involving nuclear weapons, nuclear reactors, improvised CBRN agents, materials, and other Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) systems.
This work is currently being performed by CAI under single award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Contract #HDTRA1-04-D-0020. A full and open competition was conducted in 2013 for a follow-on effort that was awarded on 23 July 2014 and was subsequently protested first to the Government Accountability Office and then to the US Court of Federal claims.
The latter protest is still pending; therefore, in order to avoid mission failure, it is DTRA’s intention to award a bridge contract to CAI.
This effort requires extensive advance planning as well as the coordination among various federal, state, local agencies, and partner nations; therefore, it is neither programmatically, financially, nor logistically feasible to conduct a full and open competition for the aforementioned services. A gap in the execution of these events would result in a stop work of critical international CBRNE efforts.
The period of performance contemplated for this effort is a one year.
