Close-In Weapons Systems installation support contract won by Serco
HERNDON, Va. Department of Defense (DoD) officials tasked Serco Inc. to continue to provide installation support for Close-In Weapons Systems (CIWS) on U.S. Navy, U.S. Army, and U.S. Coast Guard vessels. This single-award indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract has a one-year base period plus four one-year option periods, with a ceiling value of $51 million, if all option years are exercised.
Under contract, Serco will be awarded task orders to perform installations, upgrades and modifications to the CIWS, a point-defense weapon for detecting and destroying low- and high-flying, high-speed maneuvering anti-ship missile threats that have penetrated outer defenses. These systems are typically mounted shipboard in a naval capacity.
Work on the contract is expected to be performed at varying locations and facilities including training sites, private and public shipyards, pier side, in dry dock, Continental United States (CONUS), internationally, and at Serco’s facility.
