Navy Using Legally Creative Contract Structure to Keep Ship Availabilities On Track Despite Contin

The Navy has gotten creative in dealing with budget uncertainties and continuing resolutions, developing a new ship maintenance contract structure to keep 11 ship availabilities on track at the beginning of Fiscal Year 2018 that would otherwise face major delays due to the impending CR, the head of surface ship maintenance told USNI News.

Rear Adm. Jim Downey, commander of Navy Regional Maintenance Centers and deputy commander for surface warfare at Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) told USNI News today that up to a third of the ship maintenance workload can be put at risk when the fiscal year starts with a CR. This year, the Pentagon has already said 11 ship availabilities are at risk: USS Kidd (DDG-100), USS Pinckney (DDG-91), USS Coronado (LCS-4), USS Port Royal (CG-73), USS Princeton (CG-59), USS San Diego (LPD-22), USS Carter Hall (LSD-50), USS Oscar Austin (DDG-79), USS Vella Gulf (CG-72), USS James E. Williams (DDG-95) and USS Mahan (DDG-72).
