On Tuesday, the Department of Defense announced it has awarded two contracts worth a combined $225.8 million for the supply of radiology systems, subsystems, and components to the U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and federal civilian agencies.
The first contract, for $211 million, goes to Toshiba America Medical Systems and extends an existing fixed-price contract with economic-price-adjustment into a fourth "optioned" year. This contract will be performed in fiscal years 2013 and 2014.
The second contract, for $11.8 million, goes to Toshiba subsidiary Vital Images of Minnetonka, Minn. Also an option-extension, this contract adds a second year to a previously issued fixed-price-with-economic-price-adjustment contract, and it, too, will be performed in fiscal years 2013 and 2014.
