DID has written articles covering the US military’s small caliber ammunition shortages, and the steps they’ve taken to both solve the problem in the short term and implement longer-term capacity improvements. A pair of delivery orders worth about $159.2 million from the U.S. Army Field Support Command, Rock Island, IL are a good reminder that efforts continue. ATK’s Alliant Lake City Small Caliber Ammunition Company L.L.C. in Independence, MO received a delivery order amount of $133.9 million as part of a $300.45 million firm-fixed-price contract for Small Caliber Ammunition Services. Work will be performed in Independence, MO and is expected to be complete by Sept. 30, 2007. This was a sole source contract initiated on Oct. 5, 2005 (DAAA09-99-D-0016). Second source prime supplier General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Inc. in St. Petersburg, FL received a delivery order amount of $25.3 million as part of a $196.44 million firm-fixed-price contract (W52P1J-05-G-0002) for Production of .50 Caliber Ammunition. Work will be performed in St. Petersburg, FL, and is expected to be complete by Aug. 23, 2010. Bids were solicited via the World Wide Web on Jan. 18, 2005, and two bids were received.
