We plan to begin the subject evaluation in March 2020. The objective of this evaluation is to determine whether the Ship Maintenance Support Facility and Mina Salman Pier, which the U.S. Navy accepted in 2019, meet the operational requirements of the U.S. Navy. Specifically, we plan to evaluate whether the Ship Maintenance Support Facility meets staging and laydown requirements and the Mina Salman Pier meets berthing requirements for homeported and deployed vessels. We may revise the objective as the evaluation proceeds, and we will also consider suggestions from management for additional or revised objectives.
