Battelle Selected by U.S. Army for 100M Task-Order Contract

Posted on Nov 21, 2012


COLUMBUS, Ohio—Battelle will lead a team of contractors that will provide products and services to the Army Training and Doctrine Command’s (TRADOC) Maneuver Support Center of Excellence (MSCoE), located at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, under a five-year, multiple award contract with a $100 million ceiling. The first award was made last week to support the execution of the Army War-fighting Challenge Number 10. Battelle will provide draft running estimates, interim solution strategies and an integrated learning plan based on exercise and venue evaluations. 
As part of the contract, Battelle’s Fort Leonard Wood Operations will bid on task orders to provide support to the MSCoE and to the schools which are part of it, including the U.S. Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear School; the U.S. Army Engineer School; and the U.S. Army Military Police School.  The contract also provides for support to other units and organizations that are tenants at Fort Leonard Wood.  Battelle has been providing similar contract support to Fort Leonard Wood clients since 1998.
The MSCoE focuses on those military capabilities that assure freedom of maneuver to U.S. and allied forces throughout any area of operations in which they may be required to operate.  The contract includes the provision of support in the domains of Doctrine and Training Development, Training, Force Modernization, General Test and Evaluation, Simulations and Analysis, and Geospatial.  The work will be done both in government facilities and in Battelle’s office complex, located nearby in St. Robert, Missouri.
“We’re gratified the Army has selected us to continue this important work supporting the Training and Doctrine Command and the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence,” said Rick Mettke, Vice President and Manager of Battelle’s Protection Readiness Operations Product Line.
As the world’s largest, independent research and development organization, Battelle provides innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing needs through its four global businesses:  Laboratory Management, National Security, Energy Technology, and Health and Life Sciences.  It advances scientific discovery and application by conducting $6.2 billion in global R&D annually through contract research, laboratory management and technology commercialization.  Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Battelle oversees 22,000 employees in more than 130 locations worldwide, including seven national laboratories which Battelle manages or co-manages for the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and one international nuclear laboratory in the United Kingdom. 
Battelle also is one of the nation’s leading charitable trusts focusing on societal and economic impact and actively supporting and promoting science and math education.
