In a 9-minute video with background music from the “Titanic” soundtrack, the company gives a tour of a berthing barge, showing many interior sections of the ship.

“This contract contains four option years, which if exercised, would bring the contract value to a maximum ceiling of $40,261,768,” the Pentagon said Monday.

“Work will be performed in San Diego (31.50 percent), Puget Sound, Washington (28.91 percent), Pearl Harbor, Hawaii (22.24 percent), Yokosuka, Japan (7 percent), Sasebo, Japan (5.35 percent) and Guam (5 percent).”

Completion is expected by May 2015. But if all options are exercised, work will continue through May 2019.

This money was a Small Business Administration, Section 8(a) set-aside “competitively procured via the Federal Business Opportunities website, with three offers received,” the Pentagon said.
