Contractors for the DoD must meet the CMMC requirements for Cybersecurity programs. BGS is one of the first 21 contractors to be approved to evaluate and certify a firm’s cyber security programs (3CPAO) per the new requirement. BGS can also perform a preliminary evaluation to identify weakness (RPO), provide a roadmap to compliance and assist with updates to prepare for certification.

Updating the Cyber Defenses at National Nuclear Security Sites

BGS performed Blue Team penetration testing and gap analysis of cyber defenses at two National Nuclear Security Sites. We are now working to modernize the IT infrastructure and increase cyber resiliency for the unclassified and classified networks. This project is consolidating 200+ security plans into the NIST-compliant Risk Management Framework and enhancing implementation of controls.

System Support of NASA Space Exploration Initiatives

Providing NASA Pu-238 production system support services for ORNL to re-establish production of Pu-238, which uses isotopes to power deep space exploration probes. Supported development, automation, and system integrations of multiple technologies (IoT, databases, SCADA, visualization applications) in support of NASA space exploration.

Nuclear Safety Basis

Safety analysis to support plutonium heat sources (fabrication, handling, and storage activities for all ground operations) that power NASA space missions. This work supports the Idaho National Laboratory and NASA launch activities.

Safety Analysis for Nuclear Explosive Operations

BGS has an updated safety analysis method and delivered training on that method that incorporates the latest requirements to ensure safe nuclear explosive operations at the NNSA Pantex Plant (HAR Process).

BGS Supports Clean Energy Technology Programs
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) is the nation’s leader in clean energy research, development, demonstration, and deployment (RDD&D).  EERE’s mission is to create and sustain American leadership in the transition to a global clean energy economy in support of a strong and prosperous America powered by clean, affordable, and secure energy.

In 2019 EERE selected BGS as the prime contractor on the $112M Mission Oriented Technical Support (MOTS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA).  BGS provides our federal partners the professional engineering, technology, and management capabilities required to manage EERE’s clean energy RDD&D program and project portfolio to achieve the nation’s energy, security, and environmental goals.  BGS’ energy engineers and scientists work side-by-side with our clients in EERE’s Washington, DC and Golden, CO locations.

BGS supports all EERE programs including Solar, Geothermal, Wind, and Water Energy Technologies; Vehicles, Bioenergy, and Fuel Cell Technologies; and Advanced Manufacturing, Buildings, Weatherization, and Federal Energy Management.   (  Under the MOTS contract BGS along with our industry leading partner companies, provide the technical and management expertise to assess clean energy resources and markets, to prepare the seminal studies that drive national clean energy program direction and investments, and to plan, execute, manage, and closeout EERE’s national portfolio of clean energy technologies.

While the MOTS contract represents an important step for BGS, many of our people have many years’ experience supporting EERE and clean energy efforts in general. This reflects their lifelong commitment to clean energy and a bright future for our nation.  We are committed to making substantial contributions to the EERE mission and providing exciting opportunities for our personnel to do the work they love while supporting the government sector in clean energy technology development and deployment.

Nuclear Safety Center of Excellence

BGS has established a Nuclear Safety Center of Excellence to provide Nuclear Safety Analysis and Nuclear Criticality Safety services to clients across the country from our dedicated team of engineers and nuclear safety professionals located in our Oak Ridge, Tennessee office.

There is a chronic shortage of nuclear safety specialists available to support challenging and complex projects.  This problem is especially severe for nuclear facilities at remote locations with little attraction for long-term relocation of highly sought-after personnel. BGS capitalized on our set of unique capabilities (discipline knowledge coupled with project management expertise) and leveraged the large talent pool available in the Oak Ridge area to provide a stable base for remote operations.  Our Nuclear Safety Center of Excellence provides clients with the high quality resources needed to efficiently support nuclear safety projects regardless of location.

Our goal was to provide better talent, at reduced cost, and improved efficiency.  Working from a centralized location is cost-effective, by avoiding travel and relocation costs and allows BGS to share work among qualified professionals.  Working remotely allows professional to focus on the task at hand and avoids potential distractions from client site operational activities or other unrelated issues.  We carefully manage tasks and workloads so program/project managers, task leads, and functional leads can collaborate effectively, reduce project time and make optimal use of unique resources.

Clients can use the BGS Nuclear Safety Center of Excellence in concert with their own site resources, ensuring they are never short of the nuclear safety expertise required to successfully fulfill their mission.

BGS Cyber & Technology Innovation Center

In a landscape of rapidly evolving threats and new technologies there is a pressing need for experts who can quickly respond and deliver effective solutions matched with each client’s unique requirements.  The BGS Cyber & Technology Innovation Center (CTIC) was established to address emerging challenges and resolve complex, costly and time-consuming cyber security problems. Whether protecting critical infrastructure or delivering innovative solutions that advance cyber research initiatives, our experience with operational requirements in nuclear, government, and research cyber security environments sets us apart.
