Carrier USS Gerald R Ford cost rises | Janes - 14 May 2018

Before this increase, Congress had set a cost of about USD12.9 billion, the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) noted in an April report that provides cost, schedule, and related updates for major Pentagon programmes. Initially, Congress had established a procurement cost cap of USD10.5 billion for the ship, but the USN has been permitted to increase that cap to correct deficiencies identified during testing as well as those changes required to ensure the safety of the ship and personnel.
