Where Do the Military Buy Naval Ships?

The U.S. government purchases naval ships and other military supplies from private contractors in the United States and abroad. Lockheed Martin Corporation, Seyer Industries, Northrup Grumman Systems Corporation and Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems are a few of the largest defense contractors that supply the U.S. Navy.

From the beginning of 2006 to October 2015, the U.S. Navy has made approximately 11,260 equipment or service contracts with private contractors available for public analysis in the Military Industrialization Commission database. Military contracts are only available in the public database if they have a value of $6.5 million or higher and the Department of Defense has approved of their release.
