Remarks at the KC-X Award Announcement

As Delivered by Deputy Secretary of Defense William J. Lynn, III, Pentagon Press Briefing Room, Thursday, February 24, 2011

At the start of this process, we made several commitments. We committed that the source selection for the KC-X would be fair, open, and transparent. We committed that the process would be driven by clearly stated requirements defined by the warfighter. And we committed to a fixed-price contract structure that would deliver the Air Force a capable aircraft at the most competitive price. 

Under the oversight of Dr. Ash Carter, Undersecretary for Acquisition, Logistics, & Technology, the Air Force has made good on each of these commitments. 

As a result, this competition favored no one except the taxpayer and the warfighter.

I will now turn to Secretary Donley for today’s announcement.
