A PSA is accomplished within a period of approximately 10-16 weeks between the time of ship custody transfer to the Navy and the shipbuilding and conversion, Navy obligation work limiting date. The PSA encompasses all of the manpower, support services, material, non-standard equipment and associated technical data and documentation required to prepare for and accomplish the PSA. The work to be performed will include correction of government-responsible trial card deficiencies, new work identified between custody transfer and the time of PSA and incorporation of approved engineering changes that were not incorporated during the construction period which are not otherwise the building yard's responsibility under the ship construction contract.

Work will be performed in Jacksonville, Florida, and is expected to be complete by March 2020. Fiscal 2019 shipbuilding and conversion (Navy) funding in the amount of $5,896,048; fiscal 2013 shipbuilding and conversion (Navy) funding in the amount of $1,482,102; and fiscal 2018 other procurement (Navy) funding in the amount of $293,384 will be obligated at time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

The U.S. Navy's Naval Sea Systems Command, Washington, District of Columbia, is the contracting activity.
