BAE Systems San Diego Ship Repair was awarded a contract for the execution of fiscal 2019 Depot Modernization Period Availability (DMP) of the U.S. Navy Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, USS Shoup (DDG 86).
The firm-fixed-price contract, worth around $79 million, was awarded by the U.S. Department of Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). Fiscal 2019 operations and maintenance (Navy) funding in the amount of around $60 million; and fiscal 2019 other procurement (Navy) funding in the amount of around $19 million will be obligated at time of award. This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to around $87.7 million.
This availability will include a combination of maintenance, modernization and repair of USS Shoup. This is a Chief of Naval Operations-scheduled DMP. The purpose is to maintain, modernize and repair USS Shoup. This is a “long-term” availability and was competed on a coastwide (west coast) basis without limiting the place of performance to the vessel’s homeport. BAE will provide the facilities and human resources capable of completing, coordinating and integrating multiple areas of ship maintenance, repair and modernization for USS Shoup.
Work will be performed in San Diego, California, and is expected to be completed by February 2020.
USS Shoup (DDG-86) is the 36th Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer in the U.S. Navy. The ship is named for Medal of Honor recipient General David M. Shoup, the 22nd Commandant of the Marine Corps.
