The Boeing Co., Long Beach, Calif., is being awarded a $1,781,413,723 firm-fixed-price contract for a modification is a Foreign Military Sales requirement for the Indian Air Force.

Ten C-17 aircraft will be procured for the IAF.

The location of the performance is Long Beach, Calif. Work is expected to be completed by Jul. 28, 2014.

ASC/WLMK, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, is the contracting activity (FA8614-06-D-2006, DO 0009).

(EDITOR’S NOTE: This contract’s value represents only a fraction of the amount that India is expected to pay for its ten C-17s. The DSCA estimated the cost at $5.8 billion in its April 2010 notification of the sale to Congress, while India’s Cabinet in June 2011 approved the sale as a $4.8 billion project. Boeing announced in June 2011 that India’s Ministry of Defence signed an agreement with the US government to acquire 10 Boeing C-17s, but did not mention a price.)
