U.S. NAVY (continued) priations bill. It prohibits using funds to procure welded anchor chains and mooring chains four or less inches in diameter outside the
United States or Canada.
Exhibit 3 summarizes the status of FY 1988 funding for Navy weap- ons, equipment and systems as of early November. 4. SHIP MAINTENANCE
The Navy plans to perform 34 overhauls, 113 SRA's and 68 PMA's in FY 1988. This work will be per- formed in both private and naval shipyards. It represents the major source of business to shipyards in this country.
IMA's analysis of the Navy main- tenance work profile indicates 16 active fleet and three NRF ship overhauls will be contracted to com- mercial yards in FY 1988. The re- mainder of overhaul work will either be performed in naval shipyards or made part of the public/private competition.
The House appropriations bill contains language which affects overhaul and maintenance policy.
Navy is directed to limit interport differentials on the West Coast to "only those historical foreseeable costs which can accurately be esti- mated—fuel to transport such ves- sels to the port of repair and to pay for the onboard crew en route. The bill also continues to prohibit over- seas ship maintenance for ships nor- mally homeported in the United
States, except for voyage repairs.
Requested funding for ship main- tenance and modernization along with appropriation action to date is shown in Exhibit 4. The ongoing negotiation to reduce the budget deficit in FY 1988 and future years will likely have significant impact on actual maintenance funding. •
