BAE Systems Ship Repair, Norfolk, Va., has been awarded a $175,047,658 contract for the execution of USS Vicksburg (CG 69) fiscal 2020 modernization period (MODPRD). The work will include a combination of maintenance, modernization and repair of the Ticonderoga class guided missile cruiser.

This is a chief of naval operations-scheduled MODPRD. This is a “long-term” availability and was solicited on a coast-wide (East and Gulf coasts) basis without limiting the place of performance to the vessel’s homeport.

BAE will provide the facilities and human resources capable of completing, coordinating and integrating multiple areas of ship maintenance, repair and modernization for USS Vicksburg.

The contract includes options, which, if exercised, would bring its cumulative value to $175,143,215.

Work will be performed in Norfolk and is expected to be completed by March 2021.
