ABSTRACT

Navy Frigate (FFG[X]) Program: Background and Issues for Congress [Updated April 28, 2020]   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Document: "This report provides background information and discusses potential issues for Congress regarding the Navy's FFG(X) [guided-missile frigates] program, a program to procure a new class of 20 guided-missile frigates (FFGs). The Navy's proposed FY2021 budget requests $1,053.1 million (i.e., about $1.1 billion) for the procurement of the second FFG(X). The FFG(X) program presents several potential oversight issues for Congress. Congress's decisions on the program could affect Navy capabilities and funding requirements and the shipbuilding industrial base. This report focuses on the FFG(X) program. Other CRS [Congressional Research Service] reports discuss the strategic context within which the FFG(X) program and other Navy acquisition programs may be considered."
