According to the Department of Defense, “Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) is being awarded a potential $5, 000, 000, 000, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with mixed payment provisions including firm-fixed-price, incentive arrangements and cost-reimbursable arrangements for contractor logistics support services in support of US SOCOM worldwide.  The work will be performed at Special Operations Forces Support Activity in Lexington, Ky., and other locations across the globe and is expected to have a period of performance from March 2, 2009, to March 1, 2018.  This contract was awarded through full and open competition.  USSOCOM is the contracting activity (H92254-09-D-0001).  This contract was previously awarded in March 2009, but was terminated due to protest activity in Jun 2009.  The 2009 contract is now being reinstated to meet urgent operational requirements.

Also, Boeing (NYSE: BA) is being awarded an $80, 914, 538 firm-fixed-price indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for logistics support services for the Navy’s C-40A aircraft fleet.  Services to be provided include commercial depot support and site support at Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, Fla.; NAS Joint Reserve Base, Fort Worth, Texas; NAS North Island, Calif.; and NAS Oceana, Va..  Work will be performed in Atlanta, Ga. (50 percent); Fort Worth, Texas (30 percent); Seattle, Wash. (5 percent); Jacksonville, Fla. (5 percent); North Island, Calif. (5 percent); and Oceana, Va. (5 percent), and will be completed in July 2015.  This contract was competitively procured via an electronic request for proposals and three offers were received.  Contract funds will not expire at the end of the fiscal year.  The Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, Md., is the contracting activity (N00019-10-D-0017).

General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) won an $11, 886, 544 firm-fixed-priced contract (M67854-10-C-7016), for contractor logistics support (CLS) services to support command, control, communications, computers and intelligence sustainment support (C4IS2) systems.  CLS services provide a field and sustainment maintenance capability to the Marine Corps current C4IS2 systems inventory.  This contract will continue CLS services for critical Marine Corps C4IS2 systems while a follow-on contract is competed.  This contract will provide a transition between the current Intelligence Information, Command and control, equipment and enhancements (ICE2) contract, which expires on June 30, 2010, and the follow-on competitive contract.  This contract will have a base period of six months with two three-month options.  The scope of services to be procured will be the same as is currently being provided under the ICE2 contract and represents the minimum level of effort required to maintain the systems during the competition and awarding of the follow-on contract.  The contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $25, 221, 747.  Work will be performed in multiple CONUS and OCONUS locations and is expected to be completed by December 2010.  Contract funds in the amount of $11, 886, 544 will expire on Sept. 30, 2010.  This contract was not competitively procured.  The Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, Va., is the contracting activity (M67854-10-C-7016). “
