We design, build, deliver and maintain ships and systems on time and on cost for the U.S. Navy.


We are the Nation's team accountable for the health of its Navy. We must purposefully operate to ensure the U.S. Navy can protect and defend America. We must be supported by a modern, efficient industrial base. We must be a world-class employer of choice that inspires innovation. We must set the value-added standard for acquisition, engineering, business and maintenance.



The Naval Sea Systems Command is comprised of command staff, headquarters directorates, affiliated Program Executive Offices (PEOs)

and numerous field activities. Together, we engineer, build, buy and maintain ships, submarines and combat systems that meet the Fleet's

current and future operational requirements.


Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) is the largest of the Navy's five system commands. With a fiscal year budget of nearly $30 billion,

NAVSEA accounts for one quarter of the Navy's entire budget.


With a force of 60,000 civilian, military and contract support personnel, NAVSEA engineers, builds, buys and maintains the Navy's ships and

submarines and their combat systems.


To accomplish this, NAVSEA manages 150 acquisition programs and manages foreign military sales cases that include billions of dollars in

annual military sales to partner nations.


The origin of NAVSEA dates to 1794, when Commodore John Barry was charged to oversee the construction of a 44-gun frigate and ensure

that all business "harmonized and conformed" to the public's interest.


Today, the NAVSEA organization has 33 activities in 16 states. NAVSEA strives to be an efficient provider of defense resources for the

nation, and it plays an important role in the Navy Enterprise. As a Provider Command, it has the responsibility of directing resource

sponsors into the proper mix of manpower and resources to properly equip the fleet.


NAVSEA has the further responsibility of establishing and enforcing technical authority in combat system design and operation. These

technical standards use the organization's technical expertise to ensure systems are engineered effectively, and that they operate safely

and reliably.
