When the award is given out, $13.5 million in fiscal 2014 National Guard and Reserve equipment appropriation funding will be indebted. The funding will not expire at the end of the fiscal year.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, firm-fixed-price Navy contract was negotiated on a sole source basis.
All labor will be performed in Merrimack, N.H. The work is expected to be finished by April 2020.
General Dynamics, National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (NASSCO) and General Dynamics Land Systems were awarded two contracts with a combined value over $75.5 million.
General Dynamics Land Systems is receiving a $51.41 million modification to a previous awarded foreign military sales Army contract in exchange for its logistical support and training for Iraqi M1A1 tanks.
Funding and the location of all labor will be determined with each order.
The labor is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2015.
