Akima and Amentum’s joint venture, Akima Range Readiness Operations, has received a $333.9 million award from the U.S. Air Force calling for operations and management services at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
The contract, which is the Air Force’s largest facility operations and management award, has a performance period of seven years and was awarded by the 72nd Civil Engineer Squadron, the Herndon, Virginia-based company said Thursday.
“Akima is honored by this contract award, and the expansion of our support to the U.S. Air Force at a hub for sustainment as well as a home to many major flying units,” said Akima Facilities Solutions Group President Scott Rauer.
Under the award, ARRO will deliver responsive installation and support services covering both natural and built infrastructure at Tinker Air Force Base facilities while supervising about 400 employees as they execute modernization efforts, continuous enhancement and operations support. The contract’s duties span 19 million square feet across over 425 major facilities.
Tinker Air Force Base is the primary site for the Air Force Sustainment Center, which delivers warfighting expeditionary capabilities to the warfighter through depot maintenance, supply chain management and installation support.
Akima’s logistics services department won an earlier Air Force award in July. Under the ongoing, $109.7 million contract, the organization is providing maintenance assistance to 58 U.S. Air Force Academy aircraft at two different locations.
Amentum has also been working alongside the Air Force. As stipulated by a $46 million contract awarded in June, the company is supporting back shop maintenance operations for aircraft used in the 316th Wing and 89th Wing at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.
