This page is intended to serve as a resource to Kitsap County businesses and other stakeholders interested in learning more about the U.S. Navy’s Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP) and current and planned work at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility in Bremerton, Washington.

All  SIOP work is a function of NAVFAC Program Executive Officer for the U.S. Navy’s Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program. KEDA is not associated with NAVFAC in any official capacity. 



The Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP) mission is to execute the Navy’s once-in-a-century investment to reconfigure, modernize and optimize  four aging naval shipyards into new modern facilities that will serve our Nation into the future.

Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command is the single, responsible executive lead for execution of SIOP. They established the Program Executive Office Industrial Infrastructure (PEO II) to oversee the Program Management Office-555 (PMO-555) SIOP.

Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS & IMF)  is one of four U.S. public shipyards in need of  substantial recapitalization and reconfiguration in order to improve the timely return of ships and submarines to the fleet following maintenance and modernization.

SIOP is being organized along three lines of effort:

  • Waterfront: Where the ships are tied up, with the infrastructure needed to support them. 
  • Facilities: Infrastructure and utilities need to be completely re-capitalized in new buildings and new utilities. 
  • Industrial plant equipment: All of the equipment used to repair and fabricate parts and components for carriers and submarines specifically.
