ttIKL.L Approved For Release 2004/09/09 : CIA-RDP96-00789R003000070008-4 DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENCY WASHINGTON, D.C. 20340- 6150 S- 244/DT Mr. C. Richard D'Amato Counsel for International and National Security Policy Senate Committee on Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense Washington, D.C. 20510-6028 9 June 1991 1 (U) This is a followup to our meeting and discussion on Friday, 7 June. The target date to have our contract signed is 21 June. Although this has taken longer than we would have preferred, I want to assure you that the staff has been diligent in seeking to expedite this important task. In fact, we completed our statement of work in December 1990, but the administrative, legal, and procedural issues associated with such a,complex and unique contract contributed to the.pace of contract execution. We have, as you undoubtedly suspect, a complete record of our chronology in this regard, which demonstrates that our people have been proactive at every opportunity. However, the bottom line is that the contract will be signed this month and everything is on track, particularly since we are using R&D funds. In fact, we had obtained authorization for precontract costs which has permitted us to undertake some work while the-contract details were being finalized.
