Serco wins US Navy HAZMAT contract

Government services company Serco, which also supplies a large amount of custodial and other services to the UK government, has announced that it has been awarded a hazardous materials (HAZMAT) inventory management contract with the US Navy’s Fleet Logistics Centre San Diego.

Under the new contract Serco will provide expert personnel for the procurement of HAZMAT materials in order to buy, track, stock and provide items on request across the US Navy’s Southwest Region. The five year contract has a one year base period and four, one year option periods valued at USD $47 million if all options are exercised.

The job will involve Serco working with the Navy to standardise HAZMAT management by integrating the company’s own forecasting management model. It will also seek to identify viable substitutes to HAZMAT materials and ensure stock levels meet the US Navy’s needs along with the required military specification, Federal specification and Commercial Item Description requirements.

Dan Allen, Chairman and CEO of Serco Inc said, “For the past 14 years, Serco has been performing work on ships and at facilities nationwide to support the Navy with HAZMAT management solutions. I am proud of the commitment by our team to meet the operational needs of our customer, and delivering services and solutions that enable the Navy to deliver on their mission.”

The company will supply support to the US Navy at a number of naval installations within the Fleet Logistics Centre San Diego (FLCSD) region as well as other sites in the Southwest region including San Diego Navy Base, Naval Air Station North Island, Naval Air Facility El Centro, Naval Base Ventura County, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, and Naval Air Warfare Centre China Lake.
