52 Okc Firms Hold $16.4 Million in Defense Department Contracts / Does Not Include In-House Work at Tinker


Tipton, David, THE JOURNAL RECORD


As of this week, 52 Oklahoma City-based firms had a total of $16.4 million in U.S. Department of Defense contracts, acc ording to the Defense Contracts Administration Services Region office in Dallas.

However, that figure does not include in-house defense work conducted at Tinker Air Force Base.

Defense Contracts Administration Services manages the contracts for the defense department - as well as several other agencies - for a six-state region which includes Oklahoma. The agency monitors the progress of firms which have been awarded a contract. It also maintains data on those projects.

According to Jim Thornberry, public relations spokesman for Defense Contracts Administration Services, both the state and local figures are actually cumulative amounts, not year-to-date totals.

There are 52 firms in the metropolitan area which are involved in defense contract work, the majority of which either provide machine shop work or provide spare parts for defense apparatus.

RaNav Laboratories, according to Defense Contracts Administration Services reports, has the largest dollar amount of defense contracts - combined all its contracts total approximately $4 million. …
