                                                                                    CONTRACTS

                                                                                     AIR FORCE

            Northrop Grumman Space and Mission Systems Corp., Redondo Beach, Calif., is being awarded a $126,194,566 cost-plus-award fee contract modification. The contractor will perform activities associated with rebaselining the Space Tracking and Surveillance System (STSS) program for FY05 through FY08 due to funding restriction. Fiscal year funding constraints require work content to be prioritized and time phased differently from the current block 6 performance baseline. As a result, in order for the contractor to regain schedule, the contractor’s cost will increase (i.e. double/triple shifts, additional personnel). The contractor will also perform additional government directed testing to improve mission assurance. At this time, no funds have been obligated. This work will be complete June 2008. Headquarters Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base, Calif., is the contracting activity (F04701-02-C-0009/P00106).
