New KBR Contract With US Naval Research Laboratory Extends to Cybersecurity

The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory has placed a new task order with Houston, Texas-based science, technology and engineering company KBR for operations, maintenance and security at its facilities in Washington, D.C. 

The new indefinite-quantity/indefinite-quantity recompete contract, valued at an estimated $34 million, covers five years and expands KBR’s scope and services to include the NRL Visitor Center and cybersecurity support at several NRL campuses. 

The cost-plus-fixed-fee single-award contact also includes maintenance and sustainment services, including retrofitting tenant space and research support, for two NRL-controlled areas in Washington, D.C., KBR said Thursday.

Byron Bright, KBR Government Solutions President and a 2024 Wash100 awardee, expressed excitement over the new task order, viewing it as an indicator of the physical security and cybersecurity capabilities of the company that enabled it to hold the contract for 35 years.   

The new NRL contract follows the $60.7 million task order KBR received in March to provide cybersecurity support to the Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic. Extendable by up to four years for a potential value of $245.6 million, the contract will support the cybersecurity and risk management programs of the Defense Health Agency. 

To support its cybersecurity services, KBR maintains a cyber range, a virtual environment for testing, vulnerability determination, training and development of cyber warfare technology, and defensive measures.
