VendTech was awarded this prime security contract by the Department of Homeland Security: Federal Protective Service and stood the project up in less than 1 month to meet the operational time lines of FPS and the FPS customer.

With a contract value over $3M, VendTech supplies 24/7 armed Protective Service Officers (PSOs) to the NBAF site with dedicated project management, site supervision, quality control management, and shift supervision totaling approximately 35,804 hours of labor per year.

The contact includes adjudicated (DHS Suitability) Armed PSO and Reserve Forces qualified through 64 hours of SHIELD Program training. Responsibilities and duties include:
