Postal Service sticks with Northrop Grumman for repairs

Northrop Grumman Information Technology will continue its repair work on the Postal Service's mail processing equipment and automated devices.

USPS awarded Northrop Grumman IT a $130 million contract for repairs and ordering system management. The contract, which was a recompete for work done by the company for almost 25 years, is for the Postal Service Central Repair Facility and has a two-year base and an option for 10 years, the company announced today.

Northrop Grumman IT will continue to repair stamp vending machines, mail processing equipment and other machinery. The company developed and will continue to manage an inventory system for repair parts. It will also maintain a component-tracking and parts-ordering system.

The work will be done at the Postal Service central repair facility in Topeka, Kan.

"We are able to offer the USPS unmatched experience combined with the time-tested ability to maintain a stable, highly skilled, dedicated, efficient and productive workforce," said Jim Perriello, Northrop Grumman IT's president of government solutions.
