The Navy received more than 80 responses in a month after asking the public for information about properties near Naval Base Kitsap that could be leased to support military operations as the shipyard in Bremerton is scheduled for upgrades in the next decade.
Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Northwest, the Navy's arm to provide engineering and acquisition services, issued a Request for Information (RFI) on Oct. 26 to seek information regarding properties within a distance of approximately 40 travel miles from the base. The initial request asked for properties that could be available for 14 different operations, ranging from office space to warehouses or even outdoor sites.
