The Army has awarded Northrop Grumman [NOC] a $388.4 million contract to provide training and technical services in support of the U.S. Army Mission Command Training Program (MCTP), the company said.

The Department of the Army Mission and Installation Contracting Command Center–Fort Eustis, awarded the contract, which includes a one-year base with four option years. Work will be performed at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and training facilities worldwide.

“For more than 20 years, Northrop Grumman has provided the U.S. Army with the most realistic and challenging training support based upon lessons learned from the front lines,” said Tom Vice, corporate vice president and president of Northrop Grumman Technical Services. “We look forward to continuing to provide best-value, world-class support to this critical program that is so vital to our Nation’s warfighters.”

That company added that no U.S. Army brigade since Desert Shield/Desert Storm has deployed into a combat theater without going through an MCTP exercise.
