Naval Supply Systems Command’s weapon systems support unit solicited one vendor for the non-competitive requirement and will obligate funds with each task order.

The contract includes one two-year option and an additional two one-year options.

Eighty percent of work will take place in Jacksonville, Fla., and the remaining 20 percent will occur at various contractor facilities.
