Over the past two in-sequester days, the Pentagon has awarded a total of 42 separate contracts to various contractors, worth well over $4 billion in aggregate. Among them:

  • Privately held Marine Hydraulics International won a $7 million contract modification, under which the company will perform maintenance, alterations, and modernizations on the guided missile destroyer USS Cole. Work on the ship should be completed by June 2013.
  • Science Applications International Corp. (UNKNOWN:SAI.DL) was awarded a $21.2 million firm-fixed-price contract to perform "preventive and corrective maintenance" on software and equipment used by the Anti-Terrorism Force Protection Ashore Program Systems at 66 military installations worldwide.¬†Initial work on the project should be complete by March of next year, but the contract contains the possibility of up to five one-year options for extension which, if exercised, would increase the contract's value to $74.4 million in aggregate.
  • Alliant Techsystems (UNKNOWN:ATK.DL) won a $9.2 million firm-fixed-price contract modification for the company to upgrade the TS-04 control units on its Spider munitions to the TS-09 version. This contract will be complete by Jan. 31, 2014.
