NAVSEA builds and maintains ships, subs and combat systems, but launching those multi-million dollar assets requires much more than blueprints and elbow grease. Acquiring, operating and maintaining the best naval technology is mission-critical for the U.S. Navy and its service members. That’s why NAVSEA offers career opportunities that span the acquisition life cycle and touch nearly every vessel and weapon system across the U.S. Navy.

Our acquisition and contract specialists do the crucial legwork of building our U.S. Navy—managing the entire lifecycle of shipbuilding and combat system programs, from conception, through design and manufacture, to service and disposal.

NAVSEA ensures its acquisition and contract specialists are trained and certified according to the Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA) certification level required for their career.

DAWIA's purpose is to improve the effectiveness of the military and civilian acquisition workforce through enhanced education, training and career development and thereby improve the acquisition process.

Our acquisition community consists of Contract Specialists, Financial Management Analysts and Logistics Management Specialists. Duties include performing strategic planning for contract specifications and quality assurance criteria, conducting price and cost analysis of contracts while negotiating U.S. Navy interests and ensuring the Navy and Department of Defense have the information needed to make cost-conscious decisions.
