The Navy received 15 offers for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract via the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center’s e-Commerce Central and FedBizOpps websites.
Contractors will focus on submarine and surface ship new construction, modernization, systems production integration, installation and life cycle support of systems and subsystems integrated within or in support of platforms.
Platforms will be both afloat- and shore-based, the Pentagon said.
Support services will also include acquisition, testing and configuration management.
Work will occur worldwide through December 2013 and could continue until December 2017 if the Navy exercises all options.
