Alliant Techsystems, the world’s largest ammunition maker, fended off
BAE Systems to win the U.S. military’s biggest contract last month.
The $8.48 billion deal to upgrade and operate an Army
ammunition factory in Missouri topped a list of more than 310 awards
with a combined potential value of $37.4 billion announced by the
Defense Department in October.
The month’s total fell 17 percent from the $44.9 billion in awards
disclosed in September, the last month of the government’s fiscal year
and traditionally the busiest time of the year for procurement. The
contract, Alliant’s largest, was a victory for the company after BAE
wrested from its control a munitions facility in Virginia.
