Additional Work. Over the past week, the Department of Defense announced two additional awards to Great Lakes with a total value of $34.8 million. Recall, the DOD only discloses awards in excess of $7.5 million in its press releases, so the published number likely under-estimates the actual amount of work Great Lakes has been awarded over time.
Award 1. On September 8th, Great Lakes was awarded a $16.2 million firm-fixed-price contract for beach nourishment. Work will be performed in Cape May, New Jersey, with an estimated completion date of March 20, 2024. Fiscal 2023 civil construction funds in the amount of $16.2 million were obligated at the time of the award.
