WASHINGTON — US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) is making a sole-source purchase of 2,000 light tactical all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) from Polaris Industries, according to a Monday announcement.
The contract, to be awarded in June, includes 1,750 of the Medina, Minnesota-based company's four-seat MRZR-4 and 300 of its two-seat MRZR-2.
The contract supersedes a five-year blanket purchase agreement SOCOM and Polaris signed in 2013 which had an estimated value of $9.5 million per year.
