Coast Guard Extends Deepwater Contract

Tuesday, June 26, 2007
According to reports, the Coast Guard extended the contract for the troubled multibillion-dollar modernization program with Lockheed Martin Corp. and Northrop Grumman Corp. Despite internal and congressional scrutiny of the 25-year, $24b program dubbed Deepwater, the 43-month extension with the defense contracting joint venture, Integrated Coast Guard Systems, was expected. But the deal does not guarantee the award of any future task orders to ICGS and the value of the contract will be determined by further negotiations as the companies submit specific work proposals, according to the Coast Guard.
