The U.S. Navy awarded PAE a contract to perform the Naval Expeditionary Forensics and Biometrics (NEFB) task order under the U.S. Navy SeaPort-e IDIQ. Under the task order, PAE will provide the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division with CONUS, OCONUS and shipboard services to support the Weapons Control and Integration Department’s forensics and biometrics requirements. The period of performance is for four years and has a total approximate value of $66M if all options are exercised.
The services will range from software engineering to DNA analysis to inert ordnance examination and documentation — all of which combine to enable the Department of Defense to carry out the forensic exploitation process in expeditionary locations.
“The Naval Expeditionary Forensics and Biometrics program serves an integral role in the military services’ identity management process by managing the collection, analysis and documentation of evidence,” said PAE CEO John Heller. “The information gleaned from these processes shapes actionable intelligence, which is a cornerstone of our national security apparatus. Our employees who joined PAE in last year’s acquisition of A-T Solutions, have supported this critical mission for over five years and are proud to enable the systematic application of forensic exploitation procedures around the globe.”
PAE also recently announced a joint venture partnership with Vectrus Systems Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Vectrus, Inc. PAE Vectrus will pursue the U.S. Army’s Logistics Civil Augmentation Program V (LOGCAP V) contract vehicle.
