Pentagon Issues Contracts for Radios, Training, Logistics... and NORAD
The U.S. Department of Defense awarded nine new contracts on Monday worth some $1.121 billion in aggregate. While one single IT contract claimed the bulk of the awards, there were other, smaller winners as well. Here are a few of them:
- Harris Corporation's RF Communications division was awarded a $22.1 million firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to supply Harris radios and associated components to be used by the Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and High Yield Explosive Response enterprise that "interfaces" with first responders, National Guard teams, military tactical components, law enforcement, and certain Department of Defense entities. This contact will begin with an initial shipment of 30 radios, but will not be completed until July 2015.
- Lockheed Martin's Information Systems & Global Services unit won a $20.8 million contract modification to support air, missile, and space defense operations for the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) Cheyenne Mountain Complex/Integrated Tactical Warning/Attack Assessment (NCMC/ITW/AA) through Dec. 31, 2013.
- URS Federal Services was awarded a contract modification worth up to $11.8 million, exercising the first (of four) option year(s) attached to a one-year base contract for unspecified "material distribution services" in Maryland and Utah through July 31, 2017.
- Science Applications International Corp won a $6.8 million firm-fixed-price contract to provide integrated training support to the U.S. Fleet Forces Command and associated fleet commands during fleet training -- primarily in the U.S., but also in Japan. This contract should run through Sept. 30, 2013.
