  • A contract modification worth up to $42.2 million, exercising the fourth and final one-year-long option period on a preexisting fixed-price with economic-price-adjustment, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for "prime vendor full-line food distribution." US Foods will be supplying foodstuffs to U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps locations, to federal civilian agencies, and to other authorized Department of Defense customers in California and South Korea through Jan. 31, 2015.
  • A separate sole-source, firm-fixed-price, indefinite-quantity contract for prime vendor full-line food distribution in California only. This second contract will be worth up to $7.2 million, and will run through July 12, 2014. Under it, US Foods will supply foodstuffs to U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard locations.
