The U.S. Air Force has released a request for proposals for a 10-year, $420 million contract to modernize and maintain KC-135 aerial refueling and transport planes.
USAF said Friday in a solicitation notice the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract encompasses recurring and nonrecurring engineering tasks and requires personnel with various skills such as aircraft design and aerodynamics.
One of the requirements listed in the statement of work is the application of digital engineering systems to the project in accordance with a Department of Defense strategy.
A selected contractor must also conduct program management reviews for both USAF and the branch’s foreign military sales customers, the notice states.
The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a two-year base period of performance and four two-year option periods.
Interested vendors can submit proposals through June 20.
