The five-year cost-plus-award-fee and incentive fee contract also includes the ability to provide for any continuing or emergent maintenance repairs on any of these East Coast aircraft carriers.
In addition, NASSCO–Norfolk was awarded a $23 million cost-plus-award-fee modification for the USS Harry S.
