MCLEAN, Va., Sept. 9 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has selected a firm to provide architectural and engineering services for environmental cleanup projects.

The contract issued by the USACE Baltimore District is a multiple award. It is an indefinite-delivery-indefinite-quantity arrangement with a five-year period of performance. It has a total value of about $125 million for all awardees.

Science Applications International Corp. said that under the contract its services will be provided as needed at hazardous, toxic and radioactive waste and military munitions sites within the North Atlantic Division. Its work will include consulting services to support the district and USACE clients in conducting investigations and assessments, designing solutions to mitigate unacceptable risk to humans and the environment, and communicating relevant information to the public.

"SAIC is very pleased to have the opportunity to work with the North Atlantic Division and the USACE Baltimore District in identifying and addressing hazardous, toxic, and radiological contamination at Department of Defense properties and safety issues associated with unexploded ordnance and discarded military munitions," said James R. Moos, SAIC senior vice president and group general manager."
