The USN says it is committed to ensuring decisions are aligned with, and will not impact, the construction of the Columbia-class SSBNs.

The USN has reorganised its acquisition workforce to better manage its submarine enterprise.

Changes reorganise two existing Programme Executive Offices (PEOs) and form a third to better support submarine acquisition, operational capability and availability.

Commander Naval Sea Systems Command VAdm Bill Galinis said the realignment was about 'delivering combat power to the fleet'.

Changes to the submarine enterprise were formalised during a 1 October ceremony at the Washington Navy Yard.
