OCTOBER 4, 2016 — Huntington Ingalls Inc's Ingalls Shipbuilding Division, Pascagoula, MS, is being awarded a $120,000,000 fixed-price-incentive modification to previously awarded contract N00024-16-C-2427 for additional long lead time material in support of LHA 8.

Ingalls Shipbuilding was selected to build LHA 8, the U.S. Navy’s next large-deck amphibious assault warship, in June.

Work procurement under the just-announced contract modification includes machinery control system components and software, cargo and aircraft elevators, gas turbines and refrigeration units.

Work will be performed in Cincinnati, OH, (17 percent); and in other locations throughout the U.S. that are to be determined (83 percent), and is expected to be completed by June 2020.

Fiscal 2016 shipbuilding and conversion (Navy) funds in the amount of $120,000,000 will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity.
