DHS Signs $4.5 Million Dollar Contract With Heckler & Koch

• Prison Planet

A synopsis posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website yesterday announces the DHS’ intention to ink a five year deal with the Virginia-based firearms maker to provide gun replacement parts for the Federal Protective Service, ICE, Customs and Border Protection, “and other DHS agencies as needed.”

Although the document (PDF) is supposed to be redacted, the relevant sections have not been blacked out correctly and the figures are visible (see screenshot here).

The total value of the contract is $4.5 million, spread out across five annual payments of $900,000 dollars.

Although the number of DHS agents who carry Heckler & Koch firearms is blacked out, the document states that the need to source replacement parts is to ensure reliability and “to minimize officer safety concern and to protect the American public.”
