FALLS CHURCH, Va., June 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PAE (NASDAQ: PAE, PAEWW), a global leader in delivering smart solutions to the U.S. government and its allies, was awarded a task order by the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency under the Cooperative Threat Reduction Integration Contract III to support the International Counterproliferation Program and Proliferation Security Initiative. The new business award has a potential value of more than $16.6 million over three years.
PAE President and CEO John Heller said the award recognizes the PAE Counter-Threat Solutions team’s wide-ranging subject matter expertise and training capabilities.
“DTRA has relied on PAE to support their critical missions with counterproliferation, capacity-building, training and international logistics over the past 12 years,” Heller said. “As we expand our business through new relationships with ICP and PSI, we’ll be sharing our specialized knowledge base through training essential to U.S. national security worldwide.”
“PAE is honored to be selected to continue our record of exceptional service to DTRA by supporting the ICP and PSI missions,” said PAE Vice President of Counter-Threat Solutions Will Todd. “Members of my team look forward to applying their unique skillset to advancing U.S. counterproliferation and maritime security initiatives around the globe.”
PAE will support up to 47 training events and workshops per year, including the development and delivery of curricula and course materials on a variety of specialized national security topics, focusing on enabling the disruption of weapons of mass destruction smuggling networks and pathways. After the base year, the task order may be extended through two one-year options.
