The contract is incrementally funded, with the first increment in the amount of $55.5 million being allocated at the time of award. The second increment will be funded in fiscal 2021 in the amount of $47.5 million.

The contract was competitively procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online and the Federal Business Opportunities websites, with six proposals received.
