FALLS CHURCH, Va. – PAE (NASDAQ: PAE, PAEWW), a global leader in delivering smart solutions to the U.S. government and its allies, was chosen by the Southeastern Conference of the National Collegiate Athletic Association to provide COVID-19 testing services for in-season fall sports at its 14 university locations. Teaming with Premier Medical Group, PAE will deploy trained and ready test teams to each campus for testing and related logistics to support the safe execution of football, soccer, volleyball and other scheduled sports through December 2020 with an option to extend services for playoffs and bowl games.
