FALLS CHURCH, Va., March 11 (UPI) -- The U.S. Navy has contracted CSC of Virginia for engineering and program support for the DDG 1000 Zumwalt Class Destroyer Program Office.
The task order has a one-year base period and four one-year options for an estimated five-year value of $110 million.
The Navy awarded the task order under the Naval Sea Systems Command SeaPort-Enhanced contract vehicle, which CSC won in 2004.
Under the terms of the task order, CSC will provide engineering and program management support for the development, design, building, outfitting and testing of the Zumwalt-class destroyer. Services include program, business, financial and risk management; software and mission systems integration; hull, mechanical and electrical systems engineering; and naval architecture.
"As a trusted member of the ship acquisition community, CSC provides the best value for responsive, effective support to critical acquisition programs," said James W. Sheaffer, president of CSC's North American Public Sector. "We will draw upon our recognized success in supporting cost effective program management and test and evaluation of new systems to deliver vital, mission-critical expertise for the Navy's future class of destroyers."
