This modification increases the ceiling of the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract from the previously awarded amount of $9,500,000 to $18,000,000. Work will be performed in the United Kingdom and is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2021. This contract involves foreign military sales for NATO and foreign military sales funds in the amount of $2,700,000 are being obligated at the time of the award. This modification to an existing award is the result of a country-directed, sole-source acquisition. The 338th Specialized Contracting Squadron, Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas, is the contracting activity.

The McDonnell Douglas/Boeing C-17 Globemaster III is a large military transport aircraft. The C-17 commonly performs tactical and strategic airlift missions, transporting troops and cargo throughout the world; additional roles include medical evacuation and airdrop duties.

NATO member countries are pooling their resources to charter special aircraft that give the Alliance the capability to transport troops, equipment and supplies across the globe. Robust strategic airlift capabilities are vital to ensure that NATO countries are able to deploy their forces and equipment rapidly to wherever they are needed.
