USS Toledo w. SH-60(click to view full) Northrop Grumman Newport News Corp. in Newport News, VA received a $142.8 million to accomplish the Depot Modernization Period (DMP) for the Improved Los Angeles Class attack sub USS Toledo [SSN 769], which was commissioned in February 1995. DMPs are generally performed 1/3 of the way through a boat’s life cycle, and allow necessary maintenance and equipment upgrades to keep craft like the USS Toledo mission capable. The funds are a fixed-price-incentive delivery order modification to previously awarded indefinite-delivery/ indefinite-quantity contract N00024-04-D-4409, and DID also covered a $34.7 million contract in February 2006 aimed at preparing for the DMP. Work will be performed in drydock at Newport News, VA and is expected to be complete by February 2008, but contract funds in the amount of $124 million will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. The USN’s Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair in Newport News, VA issued the contract.
