The F-16 fighter fleet is expected to be part of the U.S. arsenal for the next 20 years. As part of that plan, General Electric Co. of Cincinnati, OH negotiated a $57.8M firm fixed price, fixed quantity contract to redesign certain components, put some new component spares in the logistics pipeline, and otherwise support the life-extension and upgrade program for 95 of the fighters' F100-GE-100/129 jet engines. Solicitation for this contract began September 2004, negotiations were completed February 2005 and the work will be complete by June 2006. The Headquarters Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center at Tinker Air Force Base, OK issued this contract (FA8104-05-C-0053).
