*** MCR Buys Alion's Navy Research Business

Acquisition expands company's program management and strategic planning support work

McLean, VA, July 15, 2010

By David Hubler

MCR LLC has acquired a portion of Alion Science and Technology Corp.’s business that provides expert program management and technical services to the Navy’s Office of Naval Research.

Financial terms of the deal, which closed July 9, were not disclosed.

Under the transaction, MCR acquired several contracts currently performed by Washington Consulting Government Services, a subsidiary of Alion, according to an MCR announcement today.

The work includes a variety of program management and strategic planning support services for the ONR in areas such as expeditionary maneuver warfare, naval air warfare, and ship systems and engineering.

MCR’s acquisition will support four of the ONR’s six departments to help the Navy develop new ship and battlefield technologies and transition them to the systems commands, the announcement said.

ONR’s mission is to plan, foster and encourage scientific research and technology development to maintain the technological advantage of the Navy and Marine Corps.

Neil Albert, president and chief executive officer of MCR, said the acquisition broadens MCR’s presence within the Navy and serves as a platform for the company to expand its program management and technical services among research organizations throughout the Defense Department.

MCR, of McLean, Va., is a professional services firm with more than 500 employees who specialize in integrated program management services for the federal government.

“This acquisition complements MCR’s existing support to the Air Force Research Laboratories and intelligence community organizations, and will enable us to help the Navy and other military services achieve important mission objectives in the years ahead,” Albert said.
