More Awards. According to the daily Department of Defense award list, Great Lakes has been awarded two new contracts this week totaling some $37 million. As described below, both awards are for work that is expected to be completed in the first half of 2023. We would remind investors, periodically, awards can be rescinded by the DOD, so while we view the awards as more positive momentum for the Company, we recognize changes can happen between the DOD press release and actual work commencing.
