OSHKOSH, Wis., Feb. 15 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army affirmed its tactical vehicle production contract with Oshkosh following a Government Accountability Office recommended review.

Wisconsin-based Oshkosh was selected to manufacture its Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles for the Army in August. Competitors for the prime contract protested the award and the Government Accountability Office recommended the Army review the deal.

Oshkosh announced that the review affirmed the contract, which was for the production of up to 23,000 FMTVs and trailers and was awarded by Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command Life Cycle Management Command.

"We are very pleased the Army affirmed its original decision that Oshkosh Corporation's FMTV bid clearly represents the best overall value for the Army, the taxpayers and the warfighter," Robert Bohn, Oshkosh chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement.
