The single-award cost-plus-fixed fee contract has a four-year period of performance and a total contract value of $12 million. Work will be performed primarily in Reston, Virginia and Morgantown, West Virginia.
The AFLCMC is one of five centers under the Air Force Materiel Command and is the single center responsible for total life-cycle management of Air Force weapon systems.
