The U.S. Army has awarded Support Systems Associates, Inc. (SSAI), and its major subcontractor BAE Systems, the Logistics Support Facilities Management Activity (LSFMA) contract.

 

This a multiple award Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a value up to $1.5 billion for over five years.
