WASHINGTON, June 6 (UPI) -- Raytheon has been awarded a U.S. Marine Corps contract worth up to $249 million over five years to rebuild vehicle engines, transmissions and electronics, the company said Monday.

The contract is part of the service's Secondary Reparable, or SECREP, program.

Under the program, the Marines take delivery of the refurbished items at about half the price of buying new, Raytheon said, and the savings can be re-invested into service logistics, ensuring the readiness of mission-essential vehicles.

About 1,000 various items are covered by the contract and will be serviced by a network of original equipment manufacturers, military depots and small business suppliers.

Raytheon passed about 60 percent of revenues to small businesses in previous programs, the company said.
