DTRA Increases Cubic CBRNE Support Contract

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) has announced intentions to increase the funding ceiling on an existing Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, High-Yield Explosives (CBRNE) Exercise Support Services contract with Cubic Applications, Inc. (CAI). 

As a result of unanticipated increases in the quantity of Foreign Consequence Management (FCM), Nuclear Weapons Accident / Incident Exercise (NUWAIX) and Consequence Management Assistance Program (CMAP) events in FY13-14, the government requires an increase in the ceiling of the contract to ensure immediate and continued support of current and scheduled efforts in Fiscal Year 2013-14. The increase results in no change to the ordering period of the contract which continues through July of 2014.

“As CAI has over eight years’ experience in the planning, development, and execution of FCM/NUWAIX and CMAP efforts, only CAI possesses the in-depth knowledge and expertise required to plan, develop, and execute the current and scheduled FCM/NUWAIX and CMAP requirements,” states the DTRA announcement. “Further, as the current performer and executor of these highly specialized/niche counter CBRNE Exercise Support services, CAI is the only source capable of fulfilling the Government’s requirements.” 

The current effort with CAI is managed under HDTRA1-04-D-0020. Due to current and anticipated growth in these areas, the agency expressed intentions to re-compete the program contract prior to expiration in January 2014. 

CAI and parent company Cubic Corporation of San Diego, CA are engaged in the design, development, manufacture, integration, and sustainment of high technology systems, products, and services for government and commercial customers. Cubic employs nearly 7,800 people worldwide.
