The Job: Our Government Programs team is looking for a Program Manager to serve as the primary point of contact responsible for leading, executing, and growing the Condition Based Program with the Military Sealift Command.

The program provides a comprehensive, real-time picture of a ship''s condition and state of readiness and allows ABS to tailor onboard survey activities based on the actual condition of critical structures and machinery on the ship and to optimize survey times relative to ship operations. The program enables Operational Commanders to objectively assess risk and, in partnership with ABS, schedule surveys and repairs to better support operational commitments. By having a greater understanding of the ship''s condition, our government client can better understand the maintenance required and perform preventative maintenance and repairs before a failure occurs, which will reduce the ship''s unscheduled not-ready-for-tasking days.
