A joint venture between The Shaw Group Inc. and CSC has been awarded an eight-year contract that could be worth up to $270 million for support services at the Naval Submarine Base in Kings Bay, Ga.

The venture, known as Kings Bay Support Services LLC, will provide security, telecommunications, technical management and facilities support beginning Dec. 1.

The contract includes a one-year base period, four one-year options, and three award options.

Shaw included the contract in its fiscal 2011 fourth quarter backlog of work but did not disclose the amount.

Shaw and CSC have worked together on facilities support at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi and launch operations support at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
