Huntington Ingalls Inc. is being awarded a $23,1 million modification to previously awarded contract to continue construction preparation efforts for USS John F. Kennedy (CVN 79).
This modification allows continuation of ongoing planning, construction and material procurement that are aligned with the optimal build plan for the ship, and it affords an opportunity for the shipbuilder to incorporate further construction process improvements into the construction plan.
Work will be performed in Newport News, Virginia, and is expected to be complete by October 2017.
The Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington Navy Yard, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity.
