AECOM to Provide Maintenance Support to U.S. Air Force

LOS ANGELES -- AECOM Technology Corporation, a provider of professional technical and management support services, announcesy that it has won a task order from the U.S. Air Force for Contract Field Teams (CFT) valued at $54 million.

The CFT contract is an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the Air Force to support the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Under this task order, AECOM will provide aircraft-maintenance services at Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD) in Texas.

Under terms of the one-year assignment, which has an additional option year, approximately 290 AECOM employees will provide organizational and limited direct support for equipment sent to the CCAD. AECOM intends to staff this task order project primarily through the hire of the incumbent contractor’s workforce. The depot is the only Army facility for the repair and overhaul of rotary-wing aircraft.

"AECOM is proud to support this important program for the U.S. Air Force," says John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and chief executive officer. "Through the CFT program, AECOM is providing mission-critical support to our U.S. DOD and DHS clients. We are also able to positively impact the economy by helping to sustain and create jobs in the regions where these projects are based."

This task order brings the total of awarded task orders to AECOM to $269 million in the four months since the company was selected to participate in the CFT program. Assignments are underway in California, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas.

The CFT program, which has a maximum value of $10.12 billion over a seven-year period through 2015, provides major and minor inspections, maintenance, modifications, and repairs of aircraft and ground vehicles at government locations around the world.
