$6.5M for Non-Rechargeable Lithium Batteries
Batteries. So many things in the modern soldier’s kit seem to require batteries that their combined weight has started to become an issue. Meanwhile, batteries are necessary to keep many of those high-tech gew-gaws working. Staff America Inc. in Valdese, NC received a maximum $6.5 million definite-quantity/ indefinite-delivery, firm-fixed-price contract for non-rechargeable lithium batteries for the US Army, Navy, and Marine Corps. The contract will end on Sept. 7, 2009, and was issued by the Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR) in Richmond, VA (SP0441-05-D-1652).
