Even as Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi fled the presidential palace in Cairo as protests against his recent power grab escalated, it’s nice to see that in some places there is stability, as reflected in this contract announcement by the Pentagon on Monday:

General Dynamics Land Systems, Sterling Heights, Mich., was awarded a $37,601,061 cost-plus-fixed-fee contract. The award will provide for the modification of an existing contract to procure services in support of the M1A1 coproduction effort at the Egyptian Tank Plant in Cairo, Egypt. Work will be performed in Sterling Heights and Cairo, with an estimated completion date of Feb. 28, 2015. One bid was solicited, with one bid received. The U.S. Army Contracting Command, Warren, Mich., is the contracting activity (W56HZV-09-C-0488).
