NNS Suppliers




To enhance our current business processes Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS), a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries, has solicited the services of Avetta Solutions (Avetta) to assist us in managing required Certificates of Insurance (COI).

Avetta’s suite of online products allows HII-NNS to efficiently collect, audit and maintain accurate insurance records. Their roles and responsibilities will include collecting, tracking, and overall management of COI’s for suppliers doing business with NNS.

  • Eliminating the current manual process and paperwork burden

The use of the Avetta System is required as stated in Appendix A.
