Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. announced today the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) awarded the management and operating (M&O) contract for the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) near Las Vegas to Mission Support and Test Services LLC (MSTS), a joint venture led by Honeywell. MSTS is a limited liability company including Honeywell International Inc., and equity partners Jacobs and Stoller Newport News Nuclear, Inc. The award is valued at $5 billion over 10 years if all options are exercised.

“Jacobs is pleased to directly support the NNSA in their critical mission to enhance and ensure the future of the Nuclear Security Enterprise,” said Jacobs Aerospace and Technology Senior Vice President Ward Johnson. “This contract builds on our successful track record for design and construction of DOE nuclear facilities and our status as a major provider of management and operations of nationally critical infrastructure, and furthers our position as a premier global provider of nuclear life-cycle solutions.”


The NNSS testing facility and training ground supports a variety of national security experiments that promote the security of the U.S. and its allies through the development of nuclear deterrent and critical emergency response capabilities. A former nuclear test site, the 1,360-square mile NNSS serves as a major center for research and development advancing international nuclear monitoring and verification capabilities, as well as radiological/nuclear emergency response capabilities and training.

MSTS’ mission is to manage and operate the NNSS contract safely, securely, effectively and efficiently while adhering to impeccable ethical standards. MSTS is committed to be the high- hazard experimentation and mission-service provider of choice for U.S. National Security customers. Phase-in of the NNSS M&O contract began August 1, 2017, and is on track for successful conclusion in November.
