Bethlehem-Sparrows Point

Awarded Two T-AGS

Navy in late June awarded a $132.8 million fixed-price contract to Bethlehem Steel to build two T-

AGS oceanographic survey ships. It was one of three bidders for the con- tract. Without this work it was hard to see how the yard could survive.

According to industry sources,

Bethlehem Steel's offer was 17-25 percent lower than competing bids.

Halter Marine Awarded

Six Ship T-AGOS Contract

In April Halter received an $85.5 million fixed-price contract to build six ocean surveillance ships. The first 12 ships in this class were con- tracted to Tacoma Boatbuilding.

Thirteen firms competed for this contract. 4. PROJECTED MARKET

The shipbuilding program will continue to throw off business op- portunities for many types of com- panies.

New DOD Industry Forecasts

Exhibit 8 of the Complete August

Update shows projected demand to be directly or indirectly generated in specific industry sectors by the

Navy shipbuilding program. These numbers are based on the FY 1986 budget request and accompanying five year shipbuilding plan. They update data shown on pp. 63-64 in the IMA May report.

Use of These Data

Readers should treat these projec- tions with caution. Their accuracy depends on the assumptions used in the I/O modeling technique. It is recommended that a copy of "De- fense Purchases: An Introduction to

DEIMS" be obtained and studied.

This booklet describes the method- ology used to make these forecasts.

Church, Virginia 22401. 5. REVISED NAVY


Two changes have been made in the business-end of the Navy orga- nization and some new names ap- pear among the key contacts.

Naval Material Command


For years the Naval Material

Command has been regarded an un- necessary organization layer. In

April the issue was resolved by its elimination.

Many of the Material Command functions were absorbed into a new organization—the Office of Naval

Acquisition Support. Each of the five systems commanders now re- port directly to the Chief of Naval

Operations for progam execution, and to the Secretary of Navy for policy. 34 Circle 253 on Reader Service Card Maritime Reporter/Engineering News
