DHS Awards K2-Parsons Team $253M Contract for Anti-WMD Support

The Department of Homeland Security Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office has awarded a K2 Construction Consultants-led team a potential five-year, $253 million contract for anti-WMD detection support.

Under the contract, K2, Parsons and Culmen International will deploy radiation portal monitors for the Radiation Portal Monitor Program, which supports first responders’ ability to detect and disrupt the movement of radiological and nuclear materials to and from the United States. Paul Krogh, principal and CEO of K2 Construction Consultants, said the team would provide expertise in threat reduction systems, security screening and other key areas.

Radiation portal monitors will be deployed at the United States’ border crossings with Canada and Mexico, Parsons said.

The CWMD Office contract follows a potential five-year, $53 million anti-WMD task order Parsons secured from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency earlier in October. Under the DTRA contract, Parsons was tasked to provide technologies to help the agency improve its WMD detection, interdiction and recovery missions at different ports of entry.

The DTRA task order supports the agency’s International Counterproliferation Program and the Proliferation Security Initiative. It was awarded under the Assessment, Exercise, Modeling and Simulation Support indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
