Lockheed Martin to Support the EPA's Environmental Response Team Centers
Seabrook, MD— Lockheed Martin has won a five-year contract to provide technical, analytical and information technology support for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response. The contract has a base value of $89 million, and a total value of $143 million.
The Response Engineering and Analytical Contract (REAC) was awarded to Lockheed Martin in a recompetition of an existing contract the company has held since May 2000. On ready alert 24 hours a day, REAC teams respond to national and international incidents involving releases of oil and hazardous materials and uncontrolled hazardous waste sites. The company also stands ready to provide technical support in the event of deliberate release of weapons of mass destruction by a terrorist group.
Lockheed Martin’s REAC team supports activities performed by the EPA’s Environmental Response Team (ERT) under the authority of several federal legislative requirements. These include the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act/Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (CERCLA/SARA); the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA); the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA); the Clean Water Act (CWA); Oil Pollution Act (OPA); and others.
The teams support ERT Centers located in Edison, New Jersey; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Las Vegas, Nevada. As ERT’s main support contractor, Lockheed Martin supplies a highly skilled staff of chemists, biologists, engineers and support personnel to perform field work, laboratory analysis and field or laboratory support.
The REAC team has been called upon to conduct environmental analysis in the aftermath of numerous incidents. These included the World Trade Center attacks on September 11, 2001, the Hart Senate Office Building and U.S. Postal Service facilities anthrax decontamination, and the Space Shuttle Columbia accident on February 1, 2003.
