ALEXANDRIA, Va., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tauri Group LLC is pleased to announce that it has been selected to provide Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA) support for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Health Affairs Early Detection Division Chemical and Biological Early Detection (CBED) program. The contract is valued at nearly $38 million and the period of performance is three years and three months.
Early detection and response to a chemical or biological terrorism event is crucial for saving lives and mitigating the consequences of an attack.

"For the past three years we have had the honor of supporting BioWatch, now an integral component of the CBED program. This award is affirmation of our success in that endeavor and shows the commitment our organization has made in providing outstanding analytical expertise in the battle against weapons of mass destruction," said Mr. Ray Gordon, The Tauri Group program manager for the contract.
The Tauri Group's principal subcontractors for the SETA effort are LMI Government Consulting (McLean, VA), ManTech SRS Technologies, Inc. (Huntsville, AL), and Silva Consulting Services LLC (Eldersburg, MD).
