General Motors’ defense business has received firm-fixed-price contracts worth $222.9M combined to manufacture its infantry squad vehicle offering and facilitate initial deliveries of the platform to the U.S. Army.
In the same notice, the DoD said that GM Defense secured a separate $8.6M award for the initial delivery of ISVs as well as integrated support services for the vehicles.
In August 2019, the Army announced that GM Defense, a Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC)-Polaris team and an Oshkosh (NYSE: OSK)-Flyer Next team have been chosen to compete for the ISV program.
The service branch received three bids for each of the contracts through an online solicitation process and will determine funding and work locations upon issuance of individual orders.
GM Defense will perform work under the first contract through June 24, 2028, and the second through June 24, 2021.
