The Long Beach Naval Shipyard reportedly has landed ship-maintenance without competition between the public and private yards. Industry sources said the naval shipyard was assigned three warships that industry was led to believe would be competed between the public and private yards. The Navy's Long Beach supervisor of shipbuilding for conversion and repair confirmed in a recent meeting on port workloads that in fact there would be no competition, according to the sources. Clearly, the Navy is trying to keep the naval shipyard alive, one source said . . .

Long Beach reportedly will work on the Austin Class amphibious ship Ogden (LPD-5), the Anchorage Class amphibious ship Mount Vernon (LSD-39) and the Spruance Class destroyer Foster (DD-964). The work is scheduled to begin between February and June of next year, an industry source said. [Inside the Navy, August 31, 1992]
