The DOD said Wednesday it will reopen the bidding for a contract, which could be worth as much as $100 billion over 20 years, to replace the Air Force's fleet of aerial refueling tankers. Top officials indicated they want the competition conducted quickly, and the Air Force plans to issue a revised request for proposals late this month or in August. The Air Force chose a team led by Northrop Grumman, and Boeing protested the award. A Government Accountability Office report later found the Air Force made serious errors during the contract competition.
