Pagination or Media Count:
This thesis presents, in a case study format, the conflict between Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company and the Navy over the execution of the option to build the CGN-41. In the case, the reader is taken from the time of the signing of the original contract in 1971 through the events leading to the negotiated settlement reached by Mr. Gordon Rule. Emphasis is placed on Newport News contention that this option was invalid, the events leading to a work stoppage by Newport News and a Federal District Courts order for both parties to negotiate in good faith, and finally the events leading to Mr. Rules appointment and the validity of the agreement by him with Newport News. Additional information is provided as Technical Notes to the case, which include Shipbuilding in the U.S., Newport News, Ship Procurement and Claims Procedures. A Teaching Note is provided to assist in application of the case to a Ship Acquisition Management course. Author
