Only a day after our post on Romania’s fledgling missile-defense system, the Pentagon has this to say about it, in its daily list of contract announcements:

Kellogg Brown & Root Services Inc., Arlington, Va., was awarded a firm-fixed-price, option-filled contract with a maximum value of $134,151,953 for the development and construction of a land-based missile defense system to be build in Deveselu, Romania. Work will be performed in Romania, and Morrestown, N.J. A combination of fiscal 2013 military construction funds and fiscal 2013 research, development, testing and engineering funds in the amount of $77,815,692 are being obligated on this award. The bid was solicited through the Internet, with eight bids received. The Army Corps of Engineers, Wiesbaden, Germany, is the contracting activity (W912GB-13-C-0011).
