Government Contractors To Share In $284.6 Million Worth Of Pentagon Contracts


The Department of Defense announced 11 separate defense contracts on Friday, worth $284.6 million in total.

In addition to awards to traditional "hardware" defense contractors, the Pentagon announced the award of contracts to more general government-contracting companies.

URS Federal Services, which according to S&P Capital IQ is a subsidiary of Aecom (NYSE: ACM), was awarded a $36 million contract modification. The deal increases the ceiling value on a contract to perform C5I and NC3 system engineering, technical, and other support work on U.S. Navy Virginia-, Los Angeles-, and Seawolf-class nuclear fast attack submarines (SSNs), as well as on nuclear ballistic missile boats (SSBNs), nuclear guided missile boats (SSGNs) and the new Ohio Class Replacement submarines.
