Under the US Army Chemical Materials Agency (CMA) programme and Integration Support V (PAIS V) contract, the company will provide programme management and technical support for chemical weapons demilitarization programmes at facilities across the US. In particular, Tetra Tech will support the CMA and the Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives programme for the next five years, and will also assist CMA in managing its non-stockpile chemical material programme and chemical stockpile emergency preparedness programme.
According to the company, Tetra Tech will provide a variety of programme management, integration, and technical services to help support efficient destruction of chemical warfare and related materiel. This support includes environmental studies, design, monitoring, operations and maintenance, quality assurance, safety, and logistics support services.
The PAIS V contract activities will help the US Army to comply with international chemical weapons conventions and move towards ultimate closure of chemical agent disposal facilities and stockpile storage areas.
