Informational Session on Multi Billion Dollar contract goes well
Northrop Grumman potential GBSD contractor
120 attend June 3 informational session
 
North Dakota will soon be busy with additional activity and there is a lot at stake. Two companies, Northrop Grumman and Boeing, are competing to be selected for a multibillion-dollar contract to provide the new Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD). GBSD will replace the Minuteman missile system currently deployed in 150 silos and operated by Minot Air Force Base. The program contract, once awarded, will take about ten years to complete and will have a significant impact on the greater Minot area. 

On Monday, June 3, Northrop Grumman, one of the potential contractors, was in Minot to talk with Chamber members on what this contract will entail. One hundred and twenty people were on hand to learn more about the GBSD program, as well as have their questions answered. This won’t be the last time for an event like this as more meetings are planned. The contract is expected to be awarded late next summer.
