Program Executive Office, Ships (PEO Ships)

PEO Ships provides the U.S. Navy with a single, platform-focused organization that concentrates knowledge, management skills and buying power for the acquisition and modernization of all non-nuclear surface ships.

Effective 1 November 2002, the Honorable John Young, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development, and Acquisition (ASN RDA), established the Program Executive Office, Ships (PEO Ships) in support of a realignment of the Office of the Secretary of the Navy. The PEO realignment affected a stronger business focus with more flexible acquisition management and a standard approach for addressing the integration of various systems across multiple platforms.

As Program Executive Officer, Ships, RADM Charles S. Hamilton led one of five PEOs aligned to the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) with headquarters located at the Washington Navy Yard. The others include PEO for Integrated Warfare Systems, PEO Littoral and Mine Warfare, PEO Submarines, and PEO Carriers.

PEO Ships provides the U.S. Navy with a single, platform-focused organization that concentrates knowledge, management skills and buying power for the acquisition and modernization of all non-nuclear surface ships.

PEO Ships' oversight responsibilities encompass research, development, systems integration, construction, lifetime support, and transfer of current and future surface combatant, amphibious and auxiliary ships to include: DD, FFG, DDG, CG, DD(X), LCS, MCM, MHC, LPD-17, Sealift Ships, CLF Ships, Special Mission Ships, Coast Guard Deepwater support, Small Boats and Craft, and Command Ships.

PEO Ships and its programs play an instrumental role in fighting and winning America's Global War on Terrorism, providing the National Command Authority with combat-ready warships and sealift around the globe anytime and anywhere needed.

The Acquisition Management Directorate is responsible to the PEO SHIPS for executive planning and the direction of all activities associated with the acquisition of all elements of the Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) for the DDG-51 Class Program.
