Ten companies have won spots on a potential five-year, $644.1 million contract to provide non-complex emergent and continuous maintenance services for U.S. Navy surface combatant and amphibious ships that are visiting or stationed in Norfolk, Virginia.

The Navy received 13 offers for the multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract via a competitive procurement on FedBizOpps and obligated a total of $50,000 to the winning small businesses at the time of award as a minimum guarantee, the Defense Department said Monday.

DoD noted each contractor will provide facilities and personnel to maintain, repair and modernize the Navy’s surface vessels.

Contractors are also eligible to compete for individual delivery orders to support surface combatant and amphibious ships when the service branch identifies a requirement.
