DoD noted the cost-plus-incentive fee, cost-only, firm-fixed-price contract has a base value of $56M and includes options that would extend work through December 2028.

Naval Sea Systems Command received three bids for the project and will obligate $12.4M at the time of award. Work will take place in Moorestown, N.J., and in San Diego through December of this year.
