Seven Small Businesses in Line to Split Potential $600M in Navy Contracts

Seven small businesses are in line to split one-half billion dollars’ worth of work over five years, as the U.S. Navy awarded contracts for maintaining large ships at Naval Base San Diego.

The deals were announced May 25.

Each firm received a one-year deal and, during that first year, will be eligible to split as much as $93 million of work. Options for the second through fifth years would increase the pot to $541.7 million.

The Navy describes the shipboard work as noncomplex emergent and continuous maintenance.

Since the contracts are indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity deals, businesses must now compete for task orders under the contracts.

The businesses are Control Engineering Maintenance Corp. of San Diego, East Coast Repair and Fabrication of Norfolk, Va., Epsilon Systems Solutions Inc. of National City, Marine Group Boat Works of Chula Vista, Pacific Ship Repair and Fabrication Inc. of San Diego, Propulsion Controls Engineering of San Diego and South Coast Welding and Manufacturing Inc. of Chula Vista.

The contractors will do their work on destroyers, cruisers and various types of amphibious ships.

The Southwest Regional Maintenance Center of San Diego awarded the contracts.
