Senator Jerry Moran (R-KS) press release:
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The United States Postal Service (USPS) announced today that its Central Repair Facility (CRF) will remain in Topeka, Kansas. The current contract for CRF, as well as the Texas Repair Facility located in Grand Prairie, Texas, will expire on December 31, 2012. The Postal Service will then move to consolidate repair operations into one central repair facility which will be located in Topeka.
“I am pleased to hear that Topeka’s Central Repair Facility will not only remain open, but will expand and jobs will be created. This announcement is great news for Topeka,” Sen. Moran said.
Northrop Grumman Corporation is currently under contract to provide depot-level repairs as well as inventory and ordering system management at CRF. Following the expiration of the current contract, USPS will request competitive proposals for the operation of the expanded Topeka facility. In the upcoming weeks, the Postal Service will provide interested suppliers with detailed information concerning the planned solicitation. A new contract for the consolidated repair operation will be awarded no later than September 2012, with a contract start date of January 1, 2013.
