MC Test Service Inc. (dba MC Assembly) has been awarded a new contract for the M1A2 Abrams main battle tank from the Defense Logistics Agency in Warren, Mich.
The Defense Logistics Agency is the Department of Defense’s combat logistics support agency. The new contract calls for MC Assembly to support the manufacturing, engineering, test and support of an Analog-to-Digital Converter Module (ADCM) supporting the Fire Control Computer.
The contract is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract in support of new installations and depot repairs.
“We’re proud to support the Defense Logistics Agency with these enhancements to the M1A2 program to ensure that our warfighters are provided with the best possible products to perform their missions,” said MC Assembly President and Chief Executive Officer George Moore.
The news comes on the heels of MC Assembly successfully completing a financial audit by the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA).
DCAA provides audit and financial advisory services to the Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal entities responsible for acquisition and contract administration. The primary function of the audit is to certify that a company’s accounting system is in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 16, which requires that a company must have adequate accounting systems in place to be awarded cost-reimbursement type contacts.
DCAA auditors conducted a month-long review against the check list Standard Form (SF) 1408 to determine MC Assembly’s accounting system is in compliance with government requirements.
MC Assembly was also recently awarded a new contract by the United States Marine Corps (USMC) Logistics Command in Albany, Ga., to fabricate and test a Weapons Control Unit in support of USMC tactical ground vehicles.
“As we continue to move forward with our defense contracting business, we are finding that the qualities that have made MC Assembly a leader in its field are the same qualities the U.S. government is looking for in its business partners today,” Moore said.
