DZSP 21 loses half $billion base ops JRM contract
Fluor Federal Solutions LLC of Greenville, South Carolina has hit the Guam military buildup jackpot, after a General Accounting Office protest of its award last year to the incumbent contractor, DZSP 21.
The contract for the work to be performed for Joint Region Marianas carries a maximum dollar value of $494,519,656, according to the Department of Defense contract website. Included are facility support and base operating support, covering "management and administration, port operations, ordnance, material management, facility management, facility investment, electrical, wastewater, steam, water, base support vehicles and equipment, and environmental."
The work at various Guam locations is expected to be completed by September 2025. Navy, Air Force, Air National Guard and Defense Department operations are involved.
The contract was competitively procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce online website with eight proposals received. According to DoD, the contract action is a re-award resulting from corrective action taken due to a Government Accountability Office protest. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Pacific, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, is the contracting activity.
Fluor, a new company, will be the third company to hold the contract on Guam since the Navy first started employing a civilian contractor to handle base operations. Raytheon held the Guam Navy contract from early 2000 to 2005. DZSP 21 took over in 2005.
