Request for Information FASTER ACq Cell KRACEn June 11, 2018

NAVAIR established the Fast Acquisition Solutions to Enable Readiness (FASTER) team using an acquisition cell model to support the platform program management offices. FASTER has three primary goals: maximizing NAVAIR small business participation for aircraft maintenance, improving the quality of contracted services, and shortening the time to award. The first requirement under the FASTER initiative was to establish a new strategic sourced IDIQ MAC for Contracted Maintenance, Modification, Aircrew and Related Services (CMMARS). A second new strategic sourced contract vehicle is being established for Mod Kits, Aircraft Recovery, Augmentation, Components, & Engines (KRACEn). The KRACEn IDIQ MAC will be used by several Government entities such as Naval Fleet activities, NAVAIR Program Offices, and supporting competencies. Non-Navy customers will also be able to use the contract vehicle. The KRACEn scope provides services for less than full aircraft maintenance and support worldwide to include mod kit build and installs, retrieval of downed aircraft, augmentation, component level work, and aircraft engines. This RFI is being used to gather market research for NAVAIR to make decisions regarding the KRACEn IDIQ.
