To assist the Navy’s Commander Operational Test and Evaluation Force (COMOPTEVFOR) program with effective planning, conducting and reporting of operational test and evaluation tasks, Alion Science and Technology, a global engineering, technology and operational solutions company, has been awarded a $43 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity omnibus contract.

Alion will compete for task orders to provide critical operational test and evaluation analytical support to COMOPTEVFOR. The work will range from performing acquisition system documentation reviews to developing integrated evaluation frameworks, test plans and reports across the full range of Navy programs.

COMOPTEVFOR’s mission is to provide operational assessments of systems under test through mission-based test design, integrated test techniques and best evaluation practices, according to its Web site.

Alion was one of seven contractors named in the contract which runs until June 2016. Alion has supported COMOPTEVFOR for the past decade.
