Versar To Serve As Prime Contractor For Performance Based Remediation Task Order For The New England Group

Awarded Task Order For Up To $15.3 Million

SPRINGFIELD, Va., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Versar, Inc. (NYSE MKT: VSR) announced today that it has been awarded a task order as the prime contractor to perform performance-based remediation (PBR) for the New England Region. The initial funded award value is $10.5 million, with options totaling $4.5 million for a potential contract total of $15.3 million over the next eight years. These services will be performed for the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) under the WERC09 contract at Hanscom Air Force Base, MA; New Boston Air Reserve Station, MA; Westover Air Reserve Base, MA; and Niagara Air Reserve Station, NY.

Versar, and major team partners Environmental Chemical Corporation, Inc., and EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc., have combined their experience at Air Force Bases in the New England Region to create a team that can implement effective remediation programs and site closeouts. Using various innovative technologies, the Versar team proposed to exceed the Air Force's minimum performance standards while reducing life cycle remediation costs. 

The New England PBR award is Versar's fourth major PBR win under the AFCEC WERC09 contract.  Versar previously announced the $45 million Tinker Air Force Base award in August, 2011, and both the $7 million Front Range award and the $25 million Great Lakes Group award in August 2012. Versar has been awarded four PBR Task Orders in just over one year totaling more than $92 million.

Tony Otten, CEO of Versar said, "The achievement of our fourth major AFCEC PBR award in just over a year clearly validates Versar's capabilities in assisting the Air Force with their remediation and compliance activities at contaminated sites, significantly reducing the long-term costs.  Our team looks forward in continuing our partnership with the environmental professionals at AFCEC and the installations in the New England Region to achieve effective and permanent solutions."

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles.
