OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (April 23, 2013) – GET-NSA will provide information technology support services to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge Office in Tennessee under a three-year $10.6 million contract recently awarded by the Department of Energy.
GET-NSA will provide an array of support activities, including cyber security operations, network operations, information engineering and systems development, and end-user support and help-desk services. The project, now under way, involves about 30 incumbent employees who became GET-NSA employees on March 1. The contract will be administered by GET-NSA, an 8(a) small disadvantaged business joint venture between Charlotte, N.C.-based Nuclear Safety Associates and Miami’s Global Engineering & Technology.
NSA partnered with GET in a mentor-protégé relationship approved by the U.S. Small Business Administration and designed to help the Florida firm become more competitive in pursuing government IT and security procurements set aside for small and small disadvantaged businesses. GET has primarily supported the Department of Defense Southern Command, providing support in personnel security, IT and administrative functions. GET-NSA was established in early 2012 and approved by the SBA in September 2012.
“This is an important contract for our firm and we are eager to work with and learn from NSA,” said GET President Anthony Maruri, who founded the Miami management and organizational consulting firm in 1999 to work with federal, state and local governments and private sector companies.
The GET-NSA contract also provides access to two other small businesses: Innovative Technical Solutions, a Native American-owned information technology firm in Paducah, Ky., and Turnkey Technical Services, an Oak Ridge-based regulatory compliance and logistics consulting service.
“Creating strategic partnerships is becoming increasingly important in this highly competitive industry,” said Chris Dean, vice president of operations for NSA’s Federal Division. “Establishing this mentor-protégé relationship gives GET an advantage in bidding on government procurements set aside for small businesses.”
“We are pleased with the selection of GET-NSA as the next information technology support contractor for the Oak Ridge Office,” Larry Kelly, the manager of the DOE’s Oak Ridge Office, said in a press release. “The services provided under this contract are vital to our success, and we look forward to building a productive, professional relationship with GET-NSA.”

Johnson City, TN (January 5, 2012) — Nuclear Safety Associates (NSA) announced today that it has purchased the assets of Omicron Safety & Risk Technologies (Omicron).
Omicron, based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, executes contracts in the Department of Energy (DOE) sector of the nuclear industry, with an emphasis on nuclear safety technologies. Combined 2011 revenue for the two companies is estimated at $31million; with approximately 150 employees.
“This acquisition expands NSA’s footprint in the DOE arena to include the Nevada Test Site, Argonne National Lab, Sandia National Lab, and Los Alamos National Lab, all places NSA has not previously had a presence,” said NSA CEO Dr. Robert L. Frost. “When combined with NSA’s existing strengths at Y-12, Oak Ridge National Lab, Portsmouth, Idaho National Lab, Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment Project, and the MOX Project, we now touch most of the DOE complex.
“The acquisition expands NSA’s pool of expertise in nuclear safety and licensing technologies. The addition of Omicron’s employee’s extensive expertise in these fields brings NSA’s Nuclear Safety and Licensing business unit to 90 highly-skilled staff members, estimated to be the largest group with these specialized capabilities in the country.
The addition of the Omicron staff also expands NSA’s capabilities to include more specialty niches, including explosives safety and fire modeling, while strengthening the company’s expertise in other specialty niches such as reactor severe accident modeling and fire protection engineering.
NSA will continue to perform self-directed projects from Omicron’s Albuquerque, NM, office, which joins Oak Ridge, TN; Idaho Falls, ID; and Columbus, OH; as NSA field offices.
Omicron’s president, Dr. Louis Restrepo, will join the NSA senior management team, assuming the position of vice president, business and staff development. Tim Solack will assume the role of Director, Albuquerque Operations.

Veteran Firms in the Nuclear Industry Announce New Venture Combining Expertise, Resources to Address Seismic Hazards & Risk Assessment
(Framingham, MA & Johnson City, TN — December 20, 2011) – - Two veteran firms in the nuclear industry, Engineering Planning and Management (EPM) and Nuclear Safety Associates (NSA), are combining their expertise in nuclear safety analysis, risk assessment and regulatory compliance to offer advanced services and solutions for nuclear plant licensees addressing seismic hazards and risk assessment.
In response to pending changes in regulatory requirements from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), EPM and NSA are leveraging their collective experience to offer clients a focused, dedicated team and the latest analysis technologies to perform the seismic and structural response analyses required, along with the corresponding probabilistic risk assessments.
“Recent attention on seismic activity around the world, along with the earthquake that hit the eastern U.S. this year, has lead to intensified regulatory focus on seismic hazards and risks for U.S. nuclear facilities,” said Wade Larson, president of Engineering Planning and Management. “The combination of NSA’s strengths and experience in seismic and structural engineering with EPM’s expertise in systems engineering and probabilistic risk assessment offers nuclear facility operators the strongest team of industry experts to respond to these increasing demands.”
EPM and NSA offer a comprehensive set of services to support nuclear power plant licensees responding to the anticipated NRC Generic Letter for “Seismic Risk Evaluations for Operating Reactors” associated with the resolution to Generic Issue 199 (GI-199). The EPM/NSA team offers the talent and experience necessary to address these issues in key areas of hazards analysis, seismic hazards, seismic margins, fragility analysis and probabilistic risk assessment. The EPM/NSA team provides licensees with a complete solution designed to meet both the NRC requirements stated in the Generic Letter and, if necessary, the industry and NRC quality requirements for either a Seismic Probabilistic Risk Assessment (SPRA) or a Seismic Margins Analysis (SMA). In addition, the EPM/NSA team has developed an introductory course designed to explain the methodology necessary to meet the NRC requirements in the Generic Letter. Course details and schedule may be obtained from the company websites.
“The ability to perform all aspects of the SMA and the SPRA by employing highly regarded experts and utilizing state-of-the art analysis techniques is a unique capability that sets us apart from the competition,” said Nuclear Safety Associates President Robert Frost, Ph.D. “We have the ability to hit the ground running and provide clients with immediate, comprehensive and effective solutions to meet new requirements.”
This new venture by EPM and NSA builds on a recent joint marketing agreement between the two companies to offer comprehensive services to improve facility response plans and to mitigate health and economic consequences of all severe accidents. Client services offered under this joint agreement include analyses of Level 2 & 3 probabilistic risk assessments (PRA) based on a facility’s existing PRA results, scenario simulations for degraded cores, containment systems, venting and filtering systems to develop updated facility source terms, modeling of plume dispersions and evacuation plans.
