Navy Expects To Award
First Contracts From
Sealift Fund In Early '93
Naval officials have told Congress that the U.S. Navy expects to award its first contracts to private ship- yards from its proposed $3 billion
National Defense Sealift Fund early in 1993.
They added that the timing will depend on how quickly Congress and the Bush Administration can resolve differences over the scope and structure of the sealift fund.
Rear Adm. R.D. Milligan, direc- tor of the budget and reports office of the comptroller of the Navy, said. "We want a build-and-charter pro- gram that would allow the expan- sion of sealift without additional costs to the taxpayer."
Under the program, the Navy will acquire through construction and conversion, 20 large roll-on/roll-off vessels; lease two containerships for prepositioning; and expand the re- serve fleet from the current 96 ships to 142.
Admiral Milligan said that in addition to providing work to U.S. shipyards, the new ships will open a lot of seagoing jobs for maritime workers.
Ronald K. Kiss, a deputy assis- tant secretary in the Navy's office for research, development and ac- quisition, said the Defense Acquisi- tion Board, an internal Pentagon group, is likely to approve the $3 billion by May 1992.
All U.S. sealift financial re- sources, under the program, will be concentrated under a single man- agement structure. Mr. Milligan said it will involve some sort of coop- erative arrangement between the
Navy and the Maritime Adminis- tration.
