SS Montauk(click to view full) Sealift Inc. in Oyster Bay, NY received a $5.5 million firm-fixed-price contract with additional reimbursables for the time charter of one U.S. tanker to support military re-supply requirements. Work will be performed in the Japan/Korea area, and the contract will end by September 2006. This contract was competitively procured with more than 50 proposals solicited, and two offers received by the U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command in Washington, DC (N00033-06-C-5405). Like Maersk, Sealift, Inc. owns a number of US flag vessels; unlike Maersk, the ships do not appear to be under exclusive contract with Military Sealift Command. SS Advantage N.B. DID is using their SS Montauk tanker and SS Advantage for illustrative purposes only. The company’s site does note, however, that they are one of the largest ocean transportation contractors for U.S. Government food aid cargo.

Thanks to reader Lee Wahler for the Montauk photo and spreasheet pointers.
