The multiaward, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract has a potential value of $260m over five years for all awardees if all options are exercised.

Under the contract, GD will provide support for key army training programmes across 18 broad functional areas, including mission command support, training and simulation development, information technology (IT), exercise support and military research.
