This shipyard availability is primarily for ship maintenance and voyage repairs, including major work on the replacement of high-speed gear and other key equipment. This contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $16,250,115. Work will be performed in Norfolk, Va., and is expected to be completed by January 2011. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
