Ed Gulick, an Air Force spokesman, said in an email that the review wasnt yet complete. He also said the service has requested that Boeing submit an updated proposal.

Air Force spokesman Ed Gulick said the Pentagon wants the initial aircraft in the mid-2020s. The Pentagon will order 100, he said, implying a price tag of $550 million per bomber.
The first version of the bomber will be piloted, Gulick said, "but it will be provisioned to enable future unmanned capability."
The Pentagon's precise requirements are classified, he said.
As a result of such fiascos, Gulick said there's been a shift in Air Force procurement thinking that now emphasizes cost as a driving factor, as well as the need to keep technological requirements in check.
"We need to minimize new development and allow integration of mature technologies and proven existing systems," he said.
"The first aircraft will be designed for manned flight only when it comes out," said Gulick. "As time progresses, we'll complete everything to make it unmanned."
"It's better to get something fielded and upgrade it later, rather than hold everything up," Gulick said.

Air force spokesman Ed Gulick said the program aims to build between 80 and 100 of the new, long-range stealthy bombers.
"The LRS-B program is a top modernization priority for the Air Force and critical to our national security. The Air Force looks forward to working with all participating industry partners on this very important program," he said.
The cost of each plane is about US$550 million, he said, putting the total value of the program if all 100 planes are built at US$55 billion.
"Factors that contributed to the schedule ..., 21 Oct 2014 [cached]
"Factors that contributed to the schedule re-evaluation include delayed completion of power-on, wiring separation rework and slower-than-planned completion of functional testing," USAF spokesman Ed Gulick told IHS Jane's . However, "none of the key air force milestones have slipped," Gulick said.
He added that the USAF plans to conduct a Schedule Risk Assessment (SRA) in early 2015, immediately following receipt of Boeing's updated plan. That effort "will identify the risks associated with Boeing's schedule re-plan".
Under the terms of the USAF's contract with Boeing, the government's liability is capped at the contract ceiling price of USD4.9 billion, but the government estimates Boeing's total cost for the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) contract will be USD5.9 billion, according to Gulick.

The Air Force has been continually monitoring Boeings progress on their internal schedules, and as we get the contractors proposed revised time line we will continue to assess the milestones, Ed Gulick, a spokesman for the service said in an emailed statement.
Boeings proposed revised schedule wont be presented to Pentagon acquisition officials until early next year, after an Air Force evaluation, according to Gulick.
Gulick, the Air Force spokesman, said, We will make an assessment, and then well be able to answer how many of the milestones the military may agree to revise.
Gulick said that while its too early to predict if the revised schedule will result in an increase to the government estimate of the development phases cost, the governments liability is capped at the ceiling price.
Boeing executives previously have said they expect to recoup the $1 billion in excess development costs during the programs $39 billion production phase. The company is to report its third-quarter earnings on Oct. 22.
Boeing officials are currently seeking internal approval by the companys top leaders for a proposed revised schedule before coordinating it with the Air Force, Gulick said.
Then the Air Force will conduct a schedule risk assessment to examine the assumptions behind the proposed changes and their impact, he said.
Among the difficulties forcing Boeing to revise the schedule were a six-month delay in turning on the power of the prototype tanker, a reworking of about 5 percent of the initial aircrafts wiring after it wasnt installed to specifications and slower than planned completion of assembly line functional testing, Gulick said in his statement.
Wiring design and installation issues pushed the first flight of the initial prototype to about November from June, according to the Air Force.
Boeing is spending about $7.5 million a month of its management reserve designed for unanticipated problems, Gulick said. The Air Force estimates that based on its current expenditure rate, the contractor will exhaust the reserve in March, he said. When faced with diminished management reserves on the program, Boeing has replenished it with its own funds.
