Huntington Ingalls wins Navy support services contract

Huntington Ingalls Industries' subsidiary AMSEC LLC has been awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity multiple award contract allowing an AMSEC-led team to compete for individual task orders solicited for service requirements.

The award has a three-year base period with one five-year award term.

The contract is one of approximately 2,500 awarded under the SeaPort Enhanced acquisition program for services procurements.

SeaPort-e is the Navy's electronic platform for acquiring support services in 22 functional areas, including engineering, financial management and program management. The government estimates a maximum of $5.3 billion of services will be procured each year under the SeaPort-e multiple award contracts.

A team led by AMSEC has been selected by U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command to compete for task orders to provide services solicited by NAVSEA, Naval Air Systems Command, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, Naval Supply Systems Command, Military Sealift Command, Naval Facilities Command, Strategic Systems Programs, the Office of Naval Research and the U.S. Marine Corps.

"This contract provides AMSEC the opportunity to provide the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps with a wide range of expertise in support of their critical missions," said Harris Leonard, vice president of HII and president of AMSEC LLC. "We look forward to providing quality services which will enable our customer to meet existing and future afloat and shore mission objectives."

If task orders are awarded, AMSEC's portion of the work will be performed in Norfolk, Va., Mayport, Fla., San Diego, Philadelphia and other continental United States and worldwide areas. The work is expected to be completed by January 2019. NAVSEA's Naval Surface Warfare Center in Dahlgren, Va., is the contracting activity.
