The Security and Intelligence Business Unit of QinetiQ North America’s Mission Solutions Group (QNA MSG), has been awarded a $35.8m, five-year Firm Fixed Price contract with the US Army to operate the Army Research and Technology Protection Center (ARTPC).
Under the terms of the contract QNA MSG, a leading provider of mission-critical professional services to federal government clients, will provide Research and Technology Protection (RTP) expertise and support to research and engineering centres and acquisition programmes throughout the US Army. QNA MSG’s Security and Intelligence Business Unit was first awarded this contract in 2002 to establish and operate the ARPTC under the oversight of the Army G2. Over the past five years, the ARTPC has repeatedly been identified as a pioneer in RTP process development and a model for planning and executing technology protection of sensitive defence programmes. The contract was re-competed this summer.
Commenting on the contract win, Michael G Stolarik, President of QNA’s MSG, said: "We are delighted with this important win as it underscores our partnership with the Army G2 to ensure the identification and protection of the Army’s future war-fighting technology-based capabilities. MSG has developed a strong relationship with the Army, performing a variety of security and intelligence-related services for several major Army organisations. We look forward to building on our relationship with the Army G2 through this programme."
