(Reston, Va.) Dec. 16, 2019 – Leidos (NYSE:LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, today announced that the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded the Hanford Mission Essential Services Contract (HMESC) for the infrastructure and site services necessary to accomplish critical waste management and the continued environmental cleanup of the Hanford Site to Hanford Mission Integration Solutions (HMIS), LLC. HMIS members are Leidos Integrated Technology, LLC; Centerra Group, LLC; and Parsons Government Services, Inc. The single award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity, cost-plus-award-fee contract has a five-year base period of performance followed by one three-year option period and a final option period of two years, at an approximate value of $4 billion, if all options are exercised.
