National Strategic Protective Services to supply Oak Ridge security force
National Strategic Protective Services (NSPS) said on Jan. 22 that it had been selected by the Department of Energy (DOE) to deliver protective force services at DOE’s Oak Ridge nuclear facilities complex in Tennessee.
NSPS, a joint venture between Triple Canopy, Inc. and Securiguard, Inc., said it will be responsible for providing protective force services to the East Tennessee Technology Park, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Joe L. Evins Federal Building, and the balance of the Oak Ridge Reservation.
The company said it currently secures U.S. interests both at home and abroad. Triple Canopy, said NSPS, provides mission support, security and training services to government agencies and multinational corporations in challenging locations worldwide. Securiguard, it said, has served clients in the U.S. and internationally, delivering security services including armed officers, administration, risk assessments, technology and training. Santa Fe Protective Services, a woman-owned, small disadvantaged business, augments this experienced team, said NSPS.
NSPS said it will provide trained, qualified personnel on the contract, ensuring the safety, quality, compliance and integrity of protective force services. By integrating management and business activities, NSPS said it will meet performance objectives efficiently and cost-effectively.
"We are honored to be selected to provide essential protective force services for the Department of Energy and will work diligently to enhance security and make every effort to transition former, skilled employees smoothly and effectively," said Triple Canopy chief executive officer Ignacio Balderas.
NSPS has launched a Web site dedicated to the project to allow those interested in joining the company to apply online.. A transition team will be on the ground shortly to interview interested incumbent personnel and establish the transition process, it said.
