BAE Systems has been awarded a $33.9m contract for maintenance work relating to the USS Mobile Bay.
The US Government say in a contract notice that this delivery order is for a selected restricted availability to execute depot-level maintenance, alterations, and modifications that will update and improve the ship’s military and technical capabilities.
USS Mobile Bay is a Ticonderoga class guided missile cruiser and is named for the naval Battle of Mobile Bay during the American Civil War in 1864.
“Work will be performed in San Diego, California, and is expected to be complete by October 2020.
This delivery order includes options, which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $38,188,485 and be complete by October 2020. Fiscal 2020 operations and maintenance (Navy) funds for $33,946,052 will be obligated at time of award and will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
This delivery order was competitively procured with one request for proposal solicited, and two offers received via all eligible multiple award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contractors in the San Diego, California, area.”
BAE also recently won work to perform routine maintenance and modernization of the amphibious transport dock ship USS Anchorage.
The firm is a prolific provider of ship repair, maintenance, modernisation, conversion, and overhaul services for the US Navy and operates four full-service shipyards in the US in California, Florida, Hawaii, and Virginia.
