Work will be performed in Syracuse, N.Y. (77 percent); Corpus Christi, Texas (8 percent); Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada (6 percent); Owego, N.Y. (5 percent); Waterlooville, Hampshire, United Kingdom (3 percent); Reston, Va. (1 percent), and is expected to be completed by December 2009. Contract funds in the amount of $11m will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The contract was competitively procured and advertised via the Internet, with two proposals received. The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting activity.
