The Pentagon inked a two-year contract with Huntington Ingalls Inc. to provide ship repair support for two U.S. Navy aircraft carriers, the USS Nimitz and the USS Carl Vinson. One-fourth of the work is expected to go to San Diego, with the balance to Bremerton, Wash.
The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity deal has a $75 million ceiling.
Under the deal, Huntington Ingalls will provide management, material support services, labor, supplies and equipment deemed necessary to perform nuclear and nuclear-related work on both the Nimitz and the Carl Vinson.
The Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility of Bremerton awarded the deal, announced on July 1.
Huntington Ingalls, based in Virginia, builds the Navy’s aircraft carriers. The ship repair support deal was not competitively procured because the Pentagon determined there was only one responsible source for the work.
