Nuclear Fuel Services Names New Security Contractor

22 October 2018

Nuclear Fuel Services, Inc. (NFS) has selected Centerra Group, LLC, to provide management of its Protective Force effective Feb. 1, 2019.

After careful evaluation of proposals submitted by several companies, Centerra was selected through a competitive bid process as offering the best value to the site. The 10-year contract comprises a five-year base option followed by three-year and two-year options.

“Centerra was the clear choice for this contract award,” said John Stewart, NFS president. “I’m confident that Centerra will work closely with us to maintain the highest level of security at the site.”

Centerra has extensive experience managing some of the United States’ most critical assets and facilities for the U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration and NASA.

Transition activities will begin immediately, including hiring the current members of the NFS Protective Force. There will be no interruption of service or change in the Protective Force headcount.
