This week the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) awarded MPR a $48 million, multi-year contract to provide support services to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and other U.S. Government agencies on behalf of the USACE. The agreement enables MPR and its subcontractors (Black and Veatch, Project Time and Cost, Nuclear Consultants and Engineers, Neptune and Company, and Sandia Technical Solutions) to continue making important contributions similar to those provided on previous USACE contracts.
“We are very appreciative that the USACE continues to see the value MPR provides and the impact MPR makes,” MPR Principal Officer, Bob Coward said. “We work closely with the USACE to best engage MPR, enabling us to make a difference for them and for the country.”
MPR has provided support to the USACE on many projects since 2010. Through the prior USACE contracts, MPR has made an impact across the DOE complex, including cleanup at Hanford, new construction at Los Alamos National Lab, waste processing at Savannah River Site, cleanup at Oak Ridge National Lab, and system modernization at Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.
“Our most recent contract demonstrates the continued commitment and confidence between USACE and MPR,” Ryan Downs, MPR Vice President, Federal, said. “Our previous USACE projects have allowed us to serve as an industry leader in risk assessments for DOE, bringing new tools and methodologies to assess one-off, highly technical, high risk, multi-billion dollar construction projects, and we are grateful to continue to work alongside USACE.”
Within the contract, MPR will provide a broad range of engineering services, particularly nuclear engineering support, delivering strategic program planning, independent cost and schedule risk assessment of highly technical, first-of-a-kind construction projects around the DOE complex.
