The upcoming contract award for the future aircraft carrier Enterprise (CVN-80) will be part of a Defense Department pilot program to award major contracts faster, and Navy leadership is eyeing it as an opportunity to save money by buying two carriers instead of one.

Ellen Lord, under secretary of defense for acquisition, technology, and logistics, said at a recent Senate Armed Services Committee hearing that the Pentagon has launched six pilot programs “that push the limits of our contracting agility … to demonstrate our ability to responsibly reduce this procurement lead time.” https://news.usni.org/2017/12/19/cvn-80-eyed-accelerated-contracting-pilot-program-potential-2-carrier-buy
