The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) intends to negotiate, on a sole source basis, a cost-reimbursement contract for the accomplishment of Planning Yard (PY) support for DDG 51 Arleigh Burke-class and FFG 7 Oliver Hazard Perry-class ships.

The DDG-51 Class Planning Yard provides technical and engineering support for 62 DDG-51 Class in-service ships. This support is currently provided by General Dynamics Bath Iron Works (BIW), 700 Washington Street, Bath ME 04530-2574, under contract N00024-12-C-4311, which was extended on a sole source basis in December 2016. The efforts provided under this contract include, but are not limited to:

- Planning Yard technical and engineering support as delineated in the Navy Modernization Program Management Oversight Manual NAVSEA SL720-AA-MAN-030 Revision 3;

- Alteration design and planning, systems platform integration, logistics and configuration management support;

- CNO availability planning and execution support, including availability duration analysis;

- PIO Material procurement; and

- On-site technical support, and modernization and repair support.

The contract award is planned for BIW pursuant to statutory authority of 10 U.S.C. 2304(c) (1) as implemented by Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 6.302-1, Only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements. It is anticipated that the contract will be awarded in Q3 FY18 and will consist of a base year and four option years.

BIW is the lead-ship designer and builder with the requisite familiarity and knowledge of DDG 51/FFG 7 configurations as well as detailed understanding of the construction techniques and practices used to build these ships. As the DDG Modernization program enters its highest level of activity with 16 major DDG Modernization availabilities scheduled in FY18 through FY20, BIW is the only responsible source that can satisfy agency requirements without unacceptable schedule delays.
