The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract contains a base period with two one-year option periods which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of the contract to approximately $22m. "AMSEC has more than 30 years of experience delivering complete logistics and HM&E services to the U.S. fleet," said Harris Leonard, HII vice president and president of AMSEC operations. "We look forward to expanding our current support to carriers, surface ships, watercraft and submarines."
The contract is for electronic publishing, technical manual development, logistics engineering, planned maintenance system, supply and training development for HM&E logistics support.
The work will be performed primarily at AMSEC's Newport News location and at its work sites in Philadelphia; San Diego; Mayport, Fla.; Everett, Wash.; and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. If all options are awarded, the work is expected to be completed by September 2014. The Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), Carderock Division, Philadelphia Detachment is the contracting activity.
