QinetiQ North America awarded first two task orders under U.S. Coast Guard contract

QinetiQ North America announced Sept. 27 it was awarded two task orders for Oil Spill Claim Support Services and Data Migration and Documentation Services under the Contractor Technical and Administrative Support Services contract at the United States Coast Guard National Pollution Funds Center.

These are the first task orders awarded on the contract, which is a five-year blanket purchase agreement with a total ceiling value of $27 million.

Under the new task orders, QNA will provide the USCG with surge support services for reviewing and processing oil spill claims made against the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund, which is managed by the USCG. Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, responsible parties are liable for removal costs and damages resulting from the discharge of oil into or upon the navigable water, adjoining shorelines or the exclusive economic zone of the United States. The OSLTF is available to pay claims for uncompensated damages pursuant to the law and accompanying federal regulations. Additionally, QNA will be providing Data Migration and Documentation services for oil spill claims in order to properly archive claims and better facilitate the NPFC’s movement toward electronic records.

QNA will build on its long standing partnership with the USCG to provide support to the NPFC. Services are anticipated to include expert claims review, project management, accounting and financial support, as well as other technical services.

“QinetiQ North America is excited to expand our mission support in the areas of claims processing to the Coast Guard,” said John Sutton, executive vice president and general manager of QinetiQ North America’s Mission and Information Solutions business unit.
