Two Senators and one Representative sent a letter to Forest Service Chief Vicki Christiansen yesterday urging the agency to award the Call When Needed contract for Large and Very Large Air Tankers that was first advertised May 30, 2018, which was 476 days ago.
On August 12 we asked Kaari Carpenter, a spokesperson for the U.S. Forest Service, "When will the CWN contract be awarded?" She said, "We expect an award on this contract very soon."
It took the Forest Service 555 days to award the first next-generation air tanker contract in 2013.
