KBR Secures Five-Year Contract to Support US Geological Survey Operations
The U.S. Geological Survey Albuquerque Seismological Laboratory has awarded KBR a $20 million contract to provide operations support across multiple locations.
Under the terms of the re-compete contract, KBR will deliver sustained support to more than 330 operational or proposed stations in 69 countries, including 230 in the continental United States.
KBR said the firm-fixed-priced deal covers operations and maintenance of USGS seismographic systems, instrument testing, depot operations, data collection and inventory management. The contract has a one-year base period of performance, four one-year option periods and one six-month option, KBR said Wednesday.
USGS is a scientific agency within the Department of the Interior, responsible for monitoring and predicting Earth system interactions and providing timely and actionable warnings to decision-makers.
Byron Bright, president of government solutions at KBR, said the company will help the USGS study the Earth, natural resources and natural hazards.
“KBR scientists and engineers are changing how we learn about and protect our planet every day,” added Bright, a member of the Potomac Officers Club and a three-time Wash100 winner.
The company said it has supported USGS seismic networks for nearly four decades, adding that it has been performing similar work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Weather Service and NASA.
In March, KBR announced that it secured a potential $640 million contract to support 10 NASA exploration missions. NASA’s five-year Ground Systems and Mission Operations-3 contract covers systems engineering, facility engineering and launch support, among others.
