Summary
Rising procurement costs for Navy ships have recently emerged as a mailer of concern for both Navy officials and some Members of Congress who track Navy-related issues Combined with constraints on ship-procurement funding, these rising costs have caused the Navy to reduce planned ship procurement rates. The issue for Congress is how to respond to rising Navy ship procurement costs Aside from reducing planned ship procurement rates, one option would be to reduce Navy ship procurement costs by shifting from currently planned designs to designs with lower unit procurement costs Lower-cost designs for attack submarines, aircraft carriers, larger surface combatants, and smaller surface combatants have been proposed in recent reports by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), DOD's Office of Force Transformation (OFT), and the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments (CSBA) Options for lower-cost designs can be generated by starting with currently planned designs and making one or more of the following changes: reducing ship size: shifting from nuclear to conventional propulsion; and shifting from a hull built to military survivability standards to a hull built to commercial-ship survivability standards
