WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) formally assumed responsibility for ship maintenance availabilities at U.S. Naval Ship Repair Facility and Japan Regional Maintenance Center (SRF-JRMC) from Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet (USPACFLT) Oct. 1.

NAVSEA’s responsibilities includes the oversight of all ship maintenance and repair operations, industrial processes and procedures, and repair-related programs. USPACFLT will retain administrative control and budget authority for SRF-JRMC.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for the Navy to implement best practices across all ship maintenance facilities. The added synergy will allow us to deliver ships out of maintenance on time and within cost,” said NAVSEA Commander, Vice Adm. Tom Moore. “SRF-JRMC is an outstanding command with a proud and rich history of ensuring the readiness of our forward deployed ships. We are thrilled to have them join the One NAVSEA Team,” he continued. “This change will help ensure that the exceptional workforce of SRF-JRMC can benefit from the maintenance expertise NAVSEA brings, putting into practice lessons learned to ensure a streamlined approach to ship maintenance across the fleet.”

Following the 2017 Comprehensive Review and Strategic Readiness Review, the Navy determined that NAVSEA's technical expertise and proven maintenance processes could be harnessed to ensure the delivery of materially-ready ships to USPACFLT.

“NAVSEA is looking forward to directly supporting USPACFLT and providing a smooth transition to ensure alignment of maintenance industrial operations for SRF-JRMC,” said Moore. “As the Force Behind the Fleet, NAVSEA is dedicated to delivering deployable ships to the fleet on-time and on-budget.”

In addition to SRF-JRMC, NAVSEA oversees ship maintenance at the Navy’s four public shipyards and seven regional maintenance centers.

With an annual budget of $40 billion, NAVSEA is the largest of the Navy's five systems commands and engineers, builds, buys, and maintains the Navy’s ships, submarines, and combat systems to meet the fleet's current and future operational requirements.
