Alliant Lake City Small Caliber Ammunition Co. LLC in Independence, MO received a delivery order amount of $156.4 million as part of a $166.2 million firm-fixed-price contract for “small caliber ammunition.” In the USA, this designation usually refers to ammunition of .50 caliber (12.7mm) or lower. DID has featured ongoing coverage of the USA’s small-caliber ammunition shortages, some of the steps being taken to address them, and recent expansions of the supplier base. ATK’s protest of the recent second-source award to General Dynamics was recently withdrawn.
Work on this delivery order will be performed in Independence, MO and is expected to be completed by Sept. 30, 2006. This was a sole source contract initiated on Oct. 5, 2005 by the Army Field Support Command in Rock Island, IL (DAAA09-99-D-0016). DID has covered developments related to this contract before.
