The contract from the Marine Corp Logistics Command in Albany, Ga., is an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity award. The contract is a re-compete of the Secondary Reparables, or SECREPS, program. Raytheon was the incumbent. The new contract has a one-year base period with four one-year options and ends Sept. 30, 2015, if all options are exercised. The base-year value is $49.8 million. The contract ceiling value with options exercised is $249 million. In addition to Albany, work will also be performed at the MCLC facility in Barstow, Calif.; Camp Pendleton, Calif.; Camp Lejeune, N.C.; and Okinawa, Japan. "Raytheon has provided secondary reparable services for the U.S. Marine Corps since 2002 and offers the leadership, processes and tools needed to support our brave Marines," said Bill Toti, vice president of RTSC's Mission Support Operations. "We understand the Marine Corps' mission and anticipate that demands on equipment readiness, resulting from current conflicts, will require innovative customer support, product reliability and best-value solutions."
