Alion Wins $2.6M Navy Contract

Tuesday, October 30, 2007
The Navy has awarded Alion Science and Technology a $2.6 million contract for logistics management services to support the stand up of a Navy Strategic Mobility Office responsible for deployment planning and execution for all naval forces. Alion will be leading the Naval Operational Logistics Support Center’s (NOLSC) project to stand up the mobility office. The work focuses on writing the Navy’s comprehensive Force Deployment Planning and Execution (FDP&E) policy and the Navy Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (NTTP) guidance. The Navy is transitioning from a service-centric deployment philosophy to planning and operating in a joint force deployment environment. The period of performance under the contract runs for 18 months. Under the contract, Alion personnel will work with individual units and commands to ensure Type Unit Characteristic (TUCHA) logistics master data is accurate and inventory levels are calculated to optimal levels; serve as a liaison with the United States Transportation Command to ensure efficient delivery of material for worldwide Naval operations; and coordinate with Joint Task Force commanders to see to it that all deployment planning and execution is performed effectively and efficiently. The Navy Strategic Mobility Office will be located at NOLSC headquarters in Norfolk, Va.
