Wyle wins $59 million Navy contract

Wyle announced on Thursday that it has won a Navy air warfare contract that is estimated to be worth $59 million.

The contract will provide professional, technical, and administrative support services for the Air Warfare Division. As part of these obligations, Wyle will assist the Navy in planning, resourcing and execution of naval aviation programs, readiness and manpower. Also included in the contract will be the responsibility of supporting the Air Warfare Division in the areas of financial management, data collection, process research, requirements and capability development and analysis.

"Wyle is familiar with the complex challenges facing the leaders of the Air Warfare Division," Donna Lowe, a vice president in Wyle's Aerospace Group, said. "Our employees have long provided valuable support services to the division and across the Naval Aviation Enterprise."

Wyle is one of three companies that won the cost-plus-fixed-fee indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract. Wyle will be competing with other companies for task orders, which was laid out in the terms of the contract.

The work will be performed at the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations in the Pentagon. The work is expected to go through April 2016, with the chance of it being extended to April 2019 if all options on the contract are exercised.
