Utah Sen. Mitt Romney on Tuesday sent his congratulations on Hill’s contract for the A-10 Aircraft Structural Integrity Program (ASIP) Legacy VII.

“This announcement is welcome news for Utah, our national security, and our country,” Romney said in a prepared statement.

With this funding, Hill Air Force Base will be better equipped to continue carrying out these objectives for many years to come.”

The implementation of this contract will be performed in Clearfield, Utah, and is expected to be completed Nov. 22, 2030, Romney’s statement said. This award is the result of a sole-source acquisition, it added. Fiscal 2021 operation and maintenance funds in the amount of $6,480,694 are being obligated at the time of award.
