Air Force Awards $1.9B Design, Engineering IDIQ

The U.S. Air Force has awarded 26 companies prime positions on the potential $1.9 billion Design and Engineering Support Program contract.

The seven-year indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract is for engineering and technical services. DESP III can also be used to develop prototypes and limited production runs.

On Jan. 24, Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) announced it had won a prime position on the contract, saying it would compete for orders to help improve the operation and performance of military weapon systems.

Northrop also said contract work would aim to reduce the systems’ life cycle costs.
