The US Navy has awarded one contract for surface combatants’ class ships and another contract for amphibious class ships to three San Diego-based firms individually.

“BAE Systems, Continental Maritime and General Dynamics are each being awarded contracts to provide maintenance for surface combatants (DDG and CG) class ships and amphibious (LSD, LPD, LHA, and LHD) class ships,” the US Department of Defense announced Wednesday.

These contracts contain options, which if exercised, would have a cumulative ceiling value of $1.3 billion.

These three companies will have the opportunity to offer on individual delivery orders.  Work will be performed in San Diego, California, at contractor facilities or at Naval Base San Diego as needed. Completion is expected by April 2021 if all options are exercised.
