COLUMBUS, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Battelle was recently awarded a $107 million task order to provide ongoing Force Health Protection (FHP), analysis, assessment, and evaluation for the Navy and Marine Corps Force Health Protection Command (NMCFHPC). Battelle was awarded this Task Order under the Department of Defense Information Analysis Center's (DoD IAC) multiple-award contract (MAC) vehicle. These DoD IAC MAC task orders (TOs) are awarded by the U.S. Air Force's 774th Enterprise Sourcing Squadron (ESS) to develop and create new knowledge for the enhancement of the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) repository and the R&D and S&T community.
