Boeing Wins $2.1 Billion US Navy Contract For P-8A Aircraft

The US Navy has awarded a contract worth $2.1 billion to Boeing for the delivery of 17 P-8A Poseidon maritime, patrol and reconnaissance aircraft.

Boeing will provide 11 P-8A aircraft for the Navy, 2 for foreign military sales and 4 to cooperative agreement partners, in addition to providing long lead parts.

“The Boeing Co., Seattle, Washington, is being awarded a $2,196,638,752 modification to a previously awarded fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract (N00019-14-C-0067) for the manufacture and delivery of 17 Lot 8 full-rate production P-8A aircraft for the Navy (11), foreign military sales (2), and cooperative agreement partners (4); and long lead parts associated with the manufacture of 10 Lot 9 P-8A aircraft for the Navy (7) and the foreign military sales partners (3),” the US Department of Defense announced Thursday.  

In addition, this modification also provides for Lot 8 segregable efforts consisting of unknown obsolescence, class I change assessment, obsolescence monitoring, and integrated baseline/program management reviews, the statement says.  

Work is expected to be completed in December 2020.
