Contractors to Start Transferring Vessels Abroad on Potential $1.5B Navy Contract

VSE Corp. and a team of contractors can now start working on a potential $1.5 billion foreign military sales contract with the U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington Technology reported.

The contract, originally awarded in October 2011, has one base year worth $277 million and four one-year options.

Team members include:

  • American Systems
  • BAE Systems
  • Computer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC)
  • DRS Technologies
  • General Dynamics (NYSE: GD)
  • Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT)
  • Raytheon (NYSE: RTN)
  • SAIC Inc. (NYSE: SAI)
  • Thales

VSE and the naval ship transfer and repair team will help the Navy transfer U.S. ships to foreign buyers.

The N*STAR team will also provide field engineering, design, maintenance, training and configuration management, according to Washington Technology.

The Government Accountability Office recently ruled against a protest of the award, allowing the N*STAR team to begin work.

Last week, the Defense Department formally announced an $11 billion foreign military sale of Boeing F-15s and associated equipment to Saudi Arabia.

The U.S. had agreed in December to sell the jets in December as part of a $29.4 billion agreement.
