National Strategic Protective Services Successfully Transitions As Protective Force Services Provider At The U.S. Department Of Energy’s Oak Ridge Facilities

OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (March 25, 2013) — 

National Strategic Protective Services, LLC (NSPS), a joint venture of Triple Canopy, Inc. and Securiguard, Inc., is pleased to announce that it has successfully taken over as the provider of protective force services at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge, Tenn. facilities.

The leading security companies comprising the NSPS Joint Venture currently secure United States’ interests both at home and abroad. Triple Canopy provides mission support, security and training services to government agencies and multinational corporations in challenging locations worldwide. Securiguard has served clients in the United States and internationally, by delivering security services including armed officers, administration, risk assessments, technology and training.

"We are extremely pleased with the smooth transition and proud to be a part of the Department of Energy team at Oak Ridge,” said NSPS President Ignacio Balderas. “The protective force services contract will be managed from the local NSPS office in Oak Ridge and we look forward to playing an active role within the community."

Oak Ridge is one of the U.S. government’s most unique and critical facilities. It includes three major campuses that conduct multi-program science and technology initiatives on behalf of the DOE and other federal agencies. NSPS is responsible for providing protective force services to the East Tennessee Technology Park, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Joe L. Evins Federal Building, and a portion of the Oak Ridge Reservation. By integrating management and business activities, NSPS will meet performance objectives efficiently and cost-effectively throughout the length of the contract.

“A lot of hard work has gone into completing this successful transition, and we’re excited about welcoming NSPS to Oak Ridge,” said Larry Kelly, manager of the DOE’s Oak Ridge Office. “NSPS has assembled a highly qualified team, and we look forward to working with them as they manage the protective force operations on the Oak Ridge Reservation.”

“The NSPS team is honored to provide protective force services to the DOE Oak Ridge Office. The fact that 100 percent of the incumbent protective force has joined NSPS is very satisfying and helped facilitate a seamless transition,” said Greg McDowell, general manager at NSPS. “We look forward to leveraging our leadership team’s industry knowledge and decades of management experience to ensure the highest quality protective force services at the Oak Ridge facilities.”

The NSPS contract with the DOE at Oak Ridge is for five years; a three-year base period and a two-year option. The official transition took place at 2300 EDT (11:00 p.m.) on March 24, 2013.
