Contract services will be performed at the Naval Air Station (NAS) in Jacksonville, Florida. Valued at $9.7 million over a five-year time period, the P-3 ISEO program was awarded as a task order under the Fielded Training Systems Support Services (FTSS II) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contract. Contract performance begins March 1, 2006 and, through renewable one-year option periods, will continue until January 31, 2011.
