Of the total, $8.2 million has been obligated. Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma issued the contract.
The Wichita site won the initial contract last year with options for five more years.
“We’re already on contract, and the company is basically announcing money to continue doing that work,” said Boeing Wichita spokesman Jarrod Bartlett.
