AECOM awarded US$18.5-million U.S. Navy declassification contract

AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 140 countries around the world, announced today it has been awarded a US$18.5-million U.S. Navy declassification contract with the Department of the Navy (DoN).

This is the second declassification contract AECOM has been awarded by the DoN. The first was received in 2011. Both programs are set to run concurrently.

AECOM analysts will conduct declassification reviews of records that are 25 years and older in accordance with Executive Order 13526 — an order prescribing a uniform system for classifying, safeguarding and declassifying national security information, including information relating to defense against transnational terrorism.

Work on the project is scheduled to be performed over three years, with operations to take place within the National Capital Region.
