Raytheon has been awarded a sole source, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract by the US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) to provide the supplies and services required to plan, manage and execute engineering, industrial, logistics and operational support services.
The contract, with a ceiling in excess of $430 million, includes a one-year base period and four one-year options. Work will be performed in Indianapolis.
According to a statement, this IDIQ contract provides an expedient means for current customers to continue support to ongoing programs such as the BRU-33 Bomb Racks, LAU-115 Missile Launchers, V-22, Improved Fresnel Lens Optical Landing System, H-53 helicopter, and Shared Reconnaissance Pod.
Raytheon worked with the US Navy and the city of Indianapolis to accomplish the largest and most successful full-facility military privatisation in US history in January 1997. After the Naval Air Warfare Centre Aircraft Division, Indianapolis (NAWC ADI) facility was slated for closure in the 1995 round of base realignment and closure actions, the city of Indianapolis conducted a competition to select a private contractor to privatise the facility in-place.
Raytheon was selected to work with the Navy and the city to ensure that the facility’s capabilities would remain intact and that customers would experience a seamless transition.
