MSV(L) - Program

The current Average Unit Manufacturing Cost (AUMC) affordability caps are expressed in Base Year Fiscal Year 16 Dollars (BYFY16). The AUMC includes the actual vessel plus all associated costs including out fitting and out rigging gear with Basic Issue Items (BII), On Board Spares List (OBSL), Special Tools and Test Equipment (STTE), Test Measurement Diagnostic Equipment (TMDE), Additional Authorized Items (AAL), and any Associated Items of Equipment (ASIOE). The AUMC does not include engineering development, analysis, contractor System Engineering/Program Management, technical manuals, technical data or training, all of which will be funded as separate items. In addition, the AUMC does not include the cost of the Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) as identified in the SOW. The following are displayed in BY2016$M:

  • Prototype – 1 each - $22.022 each
  • Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) – 4 each – $16.878 each
  • Full Rate Production (FRP) – 32 each - $13.727 each

Economic Useful Life (EUL) Threshold is 30 years, and Objective is 40 years. Anticipated production quantity is 36. The following was a “pre-decisional” production schedule as of 2014:

  • FY17: 2 prototype vessels (Comparative testing)
  • FY19: 2 vessels
  • FY20: 2 vessels
  • FY21: 4 vessels
  • FY22: 6 vessels
  • FY23: 8 vessels
  • FY24: 8 vessels
  • FY25: 6 vessels

Examples of information that would be considered OPSEC sensitive: Equipment capabilities, limitations, and vulnerabilities; Detailed mission statements; Operation schedules; Readiness and vulnerability assessments; Test locations and dates; Inventory charts and reports; Detailed budget data; Photographs of components; Detailed organizational charts (with phones and e-mail listings); Technical and scientific data; Unclassified technical data with military applications; Critical maintenance information; Information extracted from a DoD Intranet web site; Lessons learned that could reveal sensitive military operations, exercises, or vulnerabilities; Logistics support (munitions, weapons, movement); Specific real time support to current or on-going military operations; Delivery schedules; and Manufacturing methods.

The MSV(L) program shall undergo test and evaluation activities to verify and validate the system to the requirements of the MSV(L). Testing will be conducted throughout the life of the program by the Government and contractor.

  1. System Requirements Review (SRR) - The contractor shall host and conduct, at the contractor’s build site, a SRR in order for the contractor and Government to assess the system requirements as captured in the PD to ensure the requirement is understood and acceptable within the budget and schedule constraints. The SRR shall be conducted immediately following the program SOWM and shall take no longer than one 8 hour work day.
  2. Preliminary Design Reviews (PDR) - The contractor shall conduct, at its facility, a PDR for the MSV(L) system integration design 90 calendar days after contract award. The total duration of the PDR shall not exceed three business days. The contractor shall provide all visual aids and documentation necessary to communicate the proposed configuration and design.
  3. Critical Design Review (CDR) - The contractor shall conduct, at its facility, a CDR 360 calendar days after contract award. The duration of the CDR shall not exceed five business days. The entrance criteria for this review shall include 85% completed detailed designs, Level of Repair Analysis (LORA) presented based on detailed design completion and availability of component source data, projections of impacts to vessel performance, RAM, and life cycle cost. The review shall include all calculations regarding cooler sizing and exhaust sizing for all engines and generators, foundation design for all engines, reduction gears, and generators, and all necessary ABS inspections (completed and planned). The contractor shall provide resolution of all risk items identified at PDR.

The contractor shall conduct Production Reviews (PRs), during the performance of the production phase of the contract. Reviews will be conducted at the vessel production intervals of 25%, 50%, 75%, and 95% for each vessel which may be combined with other vessel build’s PRs.

Fielding locations are still TBD. It is not the Government’s intent for the contractor to establish a fully capable maintenance facility.
