This contract was awarded to GP through a competitive selection process. GP has provided similar training since 1999 under the Domestic Preparedness Equipment Training Assistance Program (DPETAP) to state and local first responders . GP will support the U.S. Army's Tank- Automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM) Life Cycle Management Command (LCMC) Consequence Management team and the Pine Bluff Arsenal, a Department of Defense center of expertise for chemical and biological defensive equipment production and support. TACOM helps emergency responders operate and maintain their CBRNE detection and response equipment. Under this contract, GP can provide more than 30 courses that range from one to four hours in length.

According to Craig Seger, Senior Vice President for GP, "Our instructors and technical staff have established a reputation across the responder communities for being the go-to experts in the operation, maintenance, capabilities and limitations of a broad assortment of CBRNE equipment over the past 12 years. This competitive award recognizes our reputation for providing the highest quality training to our nation's civilian first responders, including those serving on Army installations throughout the world."
