Contractor will provide additional material and services to include planning, operations support, and maintenance support.

Contracted support includes procurement of replenishment spares and consumables, repairs, contractor field teams, software, inventory control, sustaining engineering, diminishing manufacturing, reliability, maintainability, organizational maintenance manpower, and field service representatives to supplement blue suit maintenance.

Work will be performed at San Diego, California, and is expected to be complete by Sept. 30, 2016. Fiscal 2016 operations and maintenance funds in the amount of $9,251,194 are being obligated at the time of award.

Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Robins Air Force Base, Georgia, is the contracting activity.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: Northrop was awarded a $3.2 billion contract for Global Hawk development and sustainment, so the above contract brings the total in the past week to $3.4 billion, albeit spread over two different financial years.)
