VSE Corporation (NASDAQ: VSEC) was recently awarded a Firm Fixed Price (FFP) task order under its SeaPort-e contract vehicle to support the U.S. Marine Corps Systems Command in Quantico, VA. This task order has a period of performance that includes a six-month base period and four one-year options with a total value of $37M.

Under this task order VSE will provide program management, engineering technical support, maintenance services, test and evaluation, logistics support, and vehicle and equipment storage for the USMC Product Manager Assault Amphibious Vehicles (PdM AAV) for the Equipment Maintenance Test Support (EMTS) Program. Throughout the period of performance, VSE will support the Product Manager (PdM) for the AAV test vehicles located at our AAV Maintenance Facility at Green Road, Ruther Glen, VA and multiple CONUS and OCONUS locations.
