BAE to Help Maintain, Upgrade Navy Mine Countermeasures, Destroyer Ships

The U.S. Navy has awarded BAE Systems two contracts worth $183.8 million combined and a potential $11.5 million contract modification to maintain two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers and an Avenger-class mine countermeasures ship.

BAE will provide human resources and facilities to help maintain, repair and upgrade the USS Howard (DDG 83) destroyer under the firm-fixed-price contract that has a base amount of $47.8 million and a ceiling value of $66.6 million, the Defense Department said Tuesday.

Work will occur in San Diego, California, through May 2019.

The company will support repair, modernization and maintenance work on the USS Oscar Austin (DDG 79) destroyer under a firm-fixed-price contract with a base value of $41.6 million and a ceiling of $117.2 million.

The Naval Sea Systems Command received two offers for the contract that calls for BAE to perform work in Norfolk, Virginia, through February 2019.

The service branch’s Southwest Regional Maintenance Center also awarded BAE an $11.5 million contract modification to carry out dry-docking selected restricted availability maintenance and upgrade work on the USS Champion mine countermeasures ship in San Diego through August 2018.
