General Dynamics NASSCO to Modernize USS Higgins Destroyer Under $89M Navy Contract

General Dynamics subsidiary has won a potential $89.1 million contract to help the U.S. Navy implement an extended dry-docking restricted availability effort for the USS Higgins guided missile destroyer.

NASSCO will modernize, repair and maintain the Arleigh Burke-class ship for the service branch, the Defense Department said Wednesday.

The Naval Sea Systems Command will obligate $72.5 million in fiscal 2018 operations and maintenance and “other” procurement funds at the time of award, with $58.9 million of the obligated amount slated to expire by the end of the current fiscal year.

Work will take place at the contractor’s shipyard in San Diego and is scheduled to be complete in September 2019.

NAVSEA received two bids for the project via a full and open competition on FedBizOpps.
