Work will be performed at Air Force Plant 85 in Ohio; Grissom Air Reserve Base in Indiana; Minneapolis-St. Paul Air Reserve Station and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio.

The initial value of the contract is$11.5 million. If all options are exercised over a 9-year period the total value would be as much as $25 million.
