In-Service Support


The Naval Shipbuilding Projects Office (NSPO) intends to establish an In-Service Support (ISS) Contract that combines the support requirements for the Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship (AOPS) and Joint Support Ship (JSS) in a single 35-year through-life contract.


The Project Management Offices for AOPS and JSS will deliver two new ship classes to the Royal Canadian Navy. AOPS is scheduled to be delivered in 2018 and the first JSS in 2019. Internal analysis and industry consultation support a single, combined, through-life In-Service Support contract approach. Work is broadly defined within the following service delivery areas: management, documentation and information, engineering, logistics, and maintenance including docking work periods.

Preliminary Estimate

  • More than $1.5 billion

Anticipated Timeline

  • 2016 Request for Proposal Release
  • 2017 Contract Award
