PAE has been awarded a task order to provide COVID-19 testing services for winter and spring sports for all 14 universities of the Southeastern Conference, the company reported on Wednesday.
“PAE is providing its expeditionary skillset to entities across the country for COVID-19 response efforts, including these testing services that have been vital to supporting SEC teams, coaches and staff throughout the fall season,” said John Heller, president and CEO of PAE and 2020 Wash100 Award recipient.
PAE has deployed teams to SEC campuses for COVID-19 testing and logistics support for the safety of its fall sports programs. “With this award, we’re trusted to maintain these high standards at SEC schools for winter and spring sports through early June 2021,” Heller added.
The task order builds on the PAE team’s support of SEC safety objectives. The company announced the SEC contract in Sept. 2020. PAE partnered with Premier Medical Group to deploy trained and ready test teams to each campus for testing and related logistics.
The company’s experience in complex project management and operational logistics has supported SEC’s need for a COVID-19 test provider. Having served on the front lines of the Ebola crisis in Liberia, PAE will offer skills, knowledge and capabilities to respond effectively to the COVID-19 pandemic.
PAE has made additional efforts to support remediation of the COVID-19 pandemic. The company recently announced that it won a $21.5 million contract to operate and deploy a temporary, alternative medical facility in support of COVID-19 patients in Atlanta.
The company said that it will establish Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center as a COVID-19 care site and offer complementary operational, logistical and maintenance services. Georgia’s Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency awarded the contract. PAE partner AMI will also support the delivery of medical work under the effort.
For 65 years, PAE has tackled the world’s toughest challenges to deliver agile and steadfast solutions to the U.S. government and its allies. With a global workforce of about 20,000 on all seven continents and in approximately 60 countries, PAE delivers a broad range of operational support services to meet the critical needs of our clients.
