This contract announcement Wednesday, paying for special operators’ comms — long-distance and otherwise — kind of has that old-fashioned, pay-telephone ring to it:
iGov Technologies, Reston, Va., received an increase in the contract maximum from $530,000,000 to $566,000,000 for U.S. Special Operations Command’s (USSOCOM) tactical local area network (TACLAN). The work will be performed in Tampa, Fla., and is expected be completed by June 30, 2013. The contracting office is USSOCOM MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., (H92222-08-D-0017).
Only it’s $36 million (more) for the next six months.
