GE Nabs $630.5 Million Contract To Support Super Hornet And Growler Engines

The U.S. Navy awarded General Electric [GE] a $630.5 million contract to repair, replace, and support hundreds of engine components used on the F/A-18 E/F Super Horner and EA-18G Growler aircraft.

This firm-fixed-price performance-based logistics award is supporting 773 F414 engine components. The Navy said GE was the only firm solicited in a non-competitive contract in accordance with acquisition regulations.

The work will mostly occur in various unspecified GE supplier locations and is expected to be finished by April 2022.

Annual Navy working capital funds are set to be obligated to fund individual delivery orders as they are issued. Funds will not expire at the end of the contract ordering period.

On July 2 the Navy awarded GE a $37 million modification for the repair, replacement, and program support of the 773 F414 engines, set to be finished by this upcoming September.

Relatedly, on Monday the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) awarded GE a $10.6 million advance acquisition contract for long-lead materials items for the full-rate production of Lot 23 F414-GE-400 engines for Super Hornets and Growlers. That work is expected to be finished by December 2019.
