Omega gets Defense Dept. contract

Omega Consultants, Inc., a woman-owned small business in Oak Ridge, was among 17 companies — 10 small businesses, 7 large — that were selected for awards from the Department of Defense via the U.S. Army’s Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense.

According to information released by the company, the overall Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract has a spending cap of $900 million over the next few years, and it’s not yet clear how much of that work Omega — doing business as Omega Technical Services — will acquire under the program.

“Omega was the only Tennessee business selected as a prime contractor for this contract award,” the news release stated. “Omega is also a subcontractor for the Camber Corporation team that received a large business award.”

The Defense contract award has a three-year base, with an option for three additional years.

A spokeswoman said this was Omega’s first prime contract from the Defense Department.

In a statement, Omega CEO Colleen Trapuzzano said, “Omega is honored to be selected to provide support to the DOD.  We started our business to positively impact our national security, and we are excited to assist the JPEO-CBD with this work. This award expands our portfolio into the Department of Defense and has the potential to create a significant number of jobs in the East Tennessee region.”

The  Oak Ridge company was created in 1995 and has provided support services to the Department of Energy’s nuclear weapons missions.
