Huntington Ingalls Inc. is being awarded a $6,7 million modification to previously awarded contract for the first increment of the Coordinated Shipboard Allowance List (COSAL) in support of USS America (LHA 6).
The items from the LHA 6 COSAL support outfitting the ship for testing and deployment. The COSAL is the process whereby equipment is identified along with their repair parts, consumables and material for logistical support. The COSAL specifies the range and depth of all equipment which has been validated to be onboard a ship.
Included in this allowance are operating space items, storeroom items, repair parts, special tools and maintenance assistance modules required to maintain the ship.
Specific repair part allowances are designated during the COSAL process to support preventive and corrective maintenance during extended and un-replenished periods at sea.
The COSAL is instrumental in supporting fleet and vessel readiness for mission. Work will be performed in Pascagoula, Mississippi, and is expected to be completed by February 2016.
The Supervisor of Shipbuilding Gulf Coast, Pascagoula, Mississippi, is the contracting activity.
