The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) has selected Schafer for a fifth task order award competed under DNDO’s Scientific, Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). This effort directly supports the organization’s capabilities based planning objectives and will play a significant role in DNDO’s efforts to enhance the Global Nuclear Detection Architecture (GNDA). The CBA initiative will allow DNDO to analyze gaps and solutions and better prioritize its programs, projects and activities to reduce the Nation’s risk of an act of radiological or nuclear terrorism.

DNDO is the primary entity in the U.S. government for implementing domestic nuclear detection efforts for a managed and coordinated response to radiological and nuclear threats, as well as integration of federal nuclear forensics programs. Additionally, DNDO is charged with coordinating the development of the global nuclear detection and reporting architecture, with partners from federal, state, local, and international governments and the private sector.
