Pentagon Spends $949 Million on Weapons Repair, Environmental Work, and Foodstuffs Friday

The Department of Defense awarded a dozen separate contracts today, worth $949.1 million in aggregate. Nearly half the dollar value was accounted for by a single contract let out for environmental remediation services in New Jersey. But even so, several companies managed to win sizable contracts of their own, including:

  • Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT  ) , whose Missiles and Fire Control division won a $32.1 million modification to a previously awarded cost-plus-incentive-fee contract to perform repairs and recertifications for the PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3 Missile Support Center. The cumulative value of Lockheed's underlying contract has now passed $91 million.
  • Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC  ) , whose Information Technology division was awarded a time-and-materials contract valued at up to $24.6 million to provide operation and maintenance services in support of Army Knowledge Online -- Enterprise Services.
  • Sysco (NYSE: SYY  ) , which was granted a $13.8 million ceiling-value fixed-price with economic-price-adjustment bridge contract to supply food and beverages to Army, Navy, and Air Force bases in Florida.
  • L-3 Communications (NYSE: LLL  ) , which won an $8.4 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract to establish a depot for repairing AN/ALQ-99 radar jamming pods used aboard Navy E/A-6B Prowler and E/A-18 Growler electronic warfare aircraft.
