Zumwalt concept: inshore Bath Iron Works in Bath, ME won a $42.8 million cost-plus-award-fee modification to a previous contract (N00024-05-C-2310) for the continuation of DD (X) transition design efforts and initial detail design and long lead material procurement for construction of the first DDG-1000 Zumwalt Class destroyer. The goal is to do this work before the award of a detail design completion contract, in order to minimize impact on the ship’s industrial base. The Pentagon notes that “The requirements for DD (X) will be procured, without full and open competition, from Bath Iron Works, one of only two qualified sources capable of completing the Flight 1 Class design and building a lead ship.” Work will be performed in Bath, ME and is expected to be complete by June 2006. The Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington, DC issued the contract.
