A General Dynamics subsidiary has won a potential $75 million award to maintain, modernize and repair a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship for the U.S. Navy.
General Dynamics NASSCO will conduct selected restricted availability efforts for the USS Makin Island in fiscal year 2023 under the firm-fixed-price contract action, the Defense Department said Thursday.
NASSCO will be responsible for providing workers, facilities, equipment, supervision and quality assurance to carry out the project. DOD expects the contractor to finish services delivery by October 2024.
The contract has a base value of $66.9 million and is set to reach its maximum value if the Navy exercises all options.
At the time of award, the Navy will obligate $54.9 million in FY 2023 other procurement funds and another $11.9 million in operation and maintenance funds.
Naval Sea Systems Command received two bids for the work through a competitive solicitation process.
