$67M for HMMWV Recap Program
AM General LLC in Mishawaka, IN received a maximum $67 million firm-fixed-price contract for services and part support for 1,098 National Stock Numbers (NSNs) in support of the HMMWV Recap program to completely rebuild HMMWVs for the US Army. That program currently in place at Red River Army Depot, Letterkenny Army Depot and Maine Military Authority, and will be in existence until 2011.
In a letter announcing this program [PDF], the Defense Supply Center Columbus noted that:
“With more than 160,000 High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs) in operation, the system will continue to experience very extensive use due to the high OPTEMPO, harsh environmental conditions, and extremely heavy payloads. The HMMWV will remain a primary system for the duration of Operations Iraqi Freedom/ Enduring Freedom (OIF/ OEF). DSCC will continue the focus on procuring parts needed for operational requirements and special maintenance programs that support the HMMWV.
He also notes that approximately 14 HMMWV RESET repair programs are currently ongoing to bring deployed HMMWVs back to pre-combat operational capability (TM -10120 standards), “in order to ensure worldwide troop readiness for expeditious re-deployment in current and future operations.”
Work will be performed in Mishawaka, IN; Chambersburg, PA; and Texarkana, TX. This is a sole source requirements-type contract, with one base year plus two option years. The performance completion date is Dec. 29, 2006. The Defense Supply Center Columbus in Columbus, OH issued the contract (SP075006D9711).
