In the face of almost instantaneous news cycles and increasing social media presence, the Navy must maintain a positive and relevant presence in the media and public communications arena to further its mission while maintaining appropriate operational security, the company said.
As part of the Navy´s communications mission, the Chief of Naval Information Command (CHINFO) has awarded Alion Science and Technology a USD 34M indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ), cost-plus-fixed-fee, multiple-award contract to provide worldwide communications and media support services.
Through this multiple-award IDIQ contract, Alion will work to support CHINFO across five major tasks: Media Relations, Communications Integrations and Strategy, Community Outreach, Visual Information Support, and Professional and Community Development Facilitation.
The 5-year contract includes four option years that, if exercised, could bring the total value of the contract to USD 34M. Work will be performed at multiple sites across the country and is a Task Order vehicle allowing the Navy the flexibility to award specific support items to the team of contractors supporting the efforts.
Alion combines large company resources with small business responsiveness to design and deliver engineering solutions across six core capability areas. To learn more, visit www.alionscience.com.
