Noticed this in today’s DoD contracts announcements:
AM General L.L.C., South Bend, Ind., was awarded on Feb. 2, 2006, a $42,852,720 modification to a firm-fixed-price contract for the M1114 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles. Work will be performed in South Bend, Ind., and is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2007. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This was a sole source contract initiated on July 17, 2000. The U.S. Army Tank-Automotive and Armaments Command, Warren, Mich., is the contracting activity (DAAE07-01-C-S001).
The M1114 is the “up-armored” version of the Humvee.
