K2 Group Awarded DTRA WMD Technical Support Group Contract

K2 Group, Inc. of Vienna, Virginia, is being awarded a $33,760,120 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract supporting the Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s (DTRA) Technical Support Groups (TSGs).

TSGs are worldwide, military led, rapidly deployable teams that provide the combatant commands and other government agencies a low-visibility weapons of mass destruction search capability to counter chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) threats.

TSGs provide equipment, training, technical and operational on-site Subject Matter Expertise to combatant commanders and can augment their personnel, if necessary.

Due to the unique TSG mission and associated operations, TSGs are often required to work extended hours in a field environment under austere conditions during operational responses to contingencies with extensive domestic and international travel.

Some operational support missions may require limited exposure to chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) hazards. The TSG mission sets may also occur in hostile environments worldwide and it may be necessary for contractor personnel to be armed for force protection.

This is a five-year contract of a one-year base and four one-year options.  Fiscal 2017 operations and maintenance funding in the amount of $3,800,000 being obligated at time of award.

Proposals were requested of service–disabled, veteran-owned (SDVO) small businesses via Federal Business Opportunities resulting in the receipt of eight proposals to the solicitation. Work will be performed at Ft. Belvoir, Virginia, continental U.S., and outside the continental U.S. locations, and is expected to be completed March 2022 (HDTRA1-17-C-0039).

K2 Group was founded in 2004 as a Service Disabled, Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) by an experienced Special Forces operator who also holds advance degrees in Information Security. The firm employs experienced professionals in the fields of counterterrorism, unconventional warfare, cyber security, infrastructure protection and analysis.
