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.
“SSAI is very pleased to be a prime contractor for Logistics Support Facilities,” said Michael Reynolds, SSAI Vice President of Business Development. “We are committed to customer satisfaction and look forward to working with the U.S. Army, LSFMA, BAE Systems and all of our team mates, current and future, to ensure a successful program. SSAI is excited to establish a presence in Huntsville, Alabama supporting the Redstone Arsenal.”
SSAI has teamed with BAE Systems to provide a flexible, timely, and cost-effective team with the facilities, personnel, and expertise to support the aircraft modifications and other support and services included under the contract. SSAI is establishing relationships with other Huntsville-based subcontractors required to support performance of issued task orders.
