Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies has been awarded the management and operating contract for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Security Campus in Kansas City, Missouri. The base term of this $900M annual contract is for five years, with five one-year options, totaling 10 years if fully exercised.
“Honeywell has a long-standing track record of delivering exceptional solutions to the DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) in support of a more responsive and cost-effective nuclear security enterprise,” said Chris Gentile, president of Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies. “We are committed to our Kansas City and New Mexico communities and to the future of the National Security Campus, bringing innovative manufacturing management and technology solutions to our customer.”
“Our non-nuclear production capabilities are critical to our national security, and Honeywell FM&T represents the best value to the government,” said NNSA Administrator Frank Klotz. “Honeywell has demonstrated excellent performance in advancing NNSA’s enduring mission at NSC and this award creates workforce stability for another decade.”
Honeywell is one of the NNSA’s top-performing federal contractors and has operated the Kansas City facility, along with its predecessors AlliedSignal and Bendix, since it opened in 1949, helping to provide thousands of technical and manufacturing jobs and giving more than 16,000 hours of community service and nearly $500,000 to education and local outreach annually.
The new contract begins October 1, 2015 and was competed under the name of the new facility, the National Security Campus, effectively ending the 65-year run of the DOE’s Kansas City Plant name at the former Bannister Federal Complex. The new facility is situated on 177 acres in south Kansas City and houses the production and procurement of sophisticated components and hardware to improve the safety and security of the nation’s nuclear deterrent.
