This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $724,273,053.

Work will be performed in Pascagoula, Mississippi, with as needed on-site technical support for Chief of Naval Operations availabilities at Mayport, Florida; Norfolk, Virginia; San Diego, California; and Sasebo, Japan. Work is expected to be completed by May 2028. Fiscal 2021 operation and maintenance funds in the amount of $4,156,961 (85%); and fiscal 2021 other procurement (Navy) funds in the amount of $733,581 (15%) will be obligated at time of award, of which funds in the amount of $4,156,961 will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

This contract was competitively procured with two offers received via the Federal Business Opportunities website. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.

The LPD-17 San Antonio class is a class of amphibious transport docks, also called a “landing platform, dock” (LPD), used by the U.S. Navy. These warships replace the Austin-class LPDs (including Cleveland and Trenton sub-classes), as well as the Newport-class tank landing ships, and the Charleston-class amphibious cargo ships that have already been retired.

The San Antonio class was designed to provide the Navy and U.S. Marine Corps with modern, sea-based platforms that are networked, survivable, and built to operate with 21st century transformational platforms, such as the MV-22 Osprey, the (since canceled) Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV), air-cushioned landing craft (LCACs), and future means by which marines are delivered ashore. The ship is more than 45 percent larger than the Austin class, displacing more than 25,000 tons at full load. It carries fewer troops, but has twice as much space for vehicles, landing craft, and aircraft.
