Getting blast-resistant MRAP vehicles to the front lines involves more than just vehicle orders and a DX rating for materials priority. Deliveries will be delayed if critical parts or accessories aren’t also bought in time,, and final integration of government-furnished equipment like communications systems has also been a bottleneck at times. DCX-CHOL Enterprise Inc. in Pekin, IL received $5 million in firm-fixed price purchase orders, covering 4,100 actuators and 4,010 actuator controllers for the Mine Resistance Ambush Protection Vehicle program. Work will be performed in Pekin, IL and is expected to be complete by Oct 21/08. Bids were solicited via the World Wide Web on Feb 15/08, and 1 bid was received by the Joint Manufacturing and Technology Center at Rock Island, IL (W9098S-08-P-0430).
