Help USAF Improve MRO Acquisitions
The United States Air Force needs your help to improve its acquisition of MRO services.
On behalf of the USAF, TASC, Inc., is researching the civil MRO market to help the USAF take advantage of commercial best practices. TASC has asked ARSA members for their support in this effort.
The focus of the study is commercial MRO services similar to those required for C-17, C-21, C-40, C-130, KC-10, and KC-135 and military commercial derivative aircraft. The goal is to identify a decision model that incorporates important factors and effective contracting practices for the acquisition of MRO services and commercial best contracting practices.
Two questionnaires are available, a six question survey for MRO users that seeks to understand issues considered in selecting a provider (click here); and an eight question query for repair stations that asks about factors considered in contracting and subcontracting (click here). Your response to any or all of these questions will help identify potential efficiencies in MRO acquisition practices. Once cleared by the USAF, TASC’s final report will be provided to those who respond.
