Northrop Grumman awarded mission support services contract

The U.S. Army awarded Northrop Grumman a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract, with a potential value of $205 million, to continue providing mission logistics services in support of combat brigades training at the National Training Center in Fort Irwin, Calif.

The contract covers one base year and two one-year options. Support will include the full range of mission logistics services: maintenance, supply, transportation, plus tactical logistics support staff planning and operations. Northrop Grumman has provided logistical support services to the National Training Center and Fort Irwin since 2001.

“Our demonstrated superior performance on this contract has provided our valued Army customer with world-class support and unparalleled response to meet warfighting requirements,” said Greg Schmidt, vice president and general manager, Mission Solutions and Readiness division, Northrop Grumman Technical Services. “Northrop Grumman’s win ensures that continued innovation for affordability in providing logistical support services will be delivered to the Army by a team committed to excellence and dedicated to the mission.”

Active, reserve and National Guard combat teams, ranging from 4,000 to 6,000 soldiers, rotate into the National Training Center to conduct the most challenging and realistic force-on-force and live-fire training.

“We look forward to continuing our support to the 60,000 to 80,000 warfighters who train annually at the National Training Center and Fort Irwin,” said David Booze, Ft. Irwin Support Services program manager, Northrop Grumman Technical Services. “We are proud to support the training of our nation’s heroes who defend our freedoms and our way of life around the world.”
