General Dynamics NASSCO, San Diego, CA, was recently awarded a $37.38 million cost-plus-fee contract by the U.S. Navy for the fitting-out availability of San Antonio Class amphibious assault dock ship USS San Diego (LPD 22).
Specific efforts include program management, planning, engineering, design, liaison, scheduling, labor and procurement of incidental material. This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $134.47 million.
The USS San Diego is being built by Huntington Ingalls in Pascagoula, MS. The 684 ft x 105 ft ship will transport and land elements of a landing force for a variety of expeditionary warfare missions. The USS San Diego recently completed sea trials on the Gulf Coast (see our earlier story).
Work under this contract will be performed in San Diego, and is expected to be completed by December 2014.
