MELBOURNE, Fla., 30 May 2013. Support Systems Associates Inc. (SSAI), with its subcontractor BAE Systems, won the U.S. Army Logistics Support Facilities Management Activity (LSFMA) contract, a multiple award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract with a ceiling value up to $1.5 billion over five years.
The five-year IDIQ contract includes a range of services across aviation platforms supported by the Program Executive Office (PEO) Aviation, Army Materiel Command (AMC)/Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) including engineering development of aircraft modifications, application of modifications to the aircraft fleet, logistics support of systems and aircraft, and more. In addition, services will be performed on aviation platforms operated by other U.S. government agencies and some Foreign Military Sales (FMS) countries.
“We are committed to customer satisfaction and look forward to working with the U.S. Army, LSFMA, BAE Systems, and all our team mates, current and future, to ensure a successful program,” says SSAI Vice President of Business Development Michael Reynolds. “SSAI is excited to establish a presence in Huntsville, Alabama supporting the Redstone Arsenal.”
SSAI has teamed with BAE Systems to provide a flexible, timely, and cost-effective team with the facilities, personnel, and expertise to support the aircraft modifications and other support and services included under the contract. SSAI is establishing relationships with other Huntsville based subcontractors required to support performance of issued task orders.
“BAE Systems has shown our commitment to this contract by the investments we made last year in Albertville and Huntsville to enhance performance,” explains Floyd McConnell, BAE Systems vice president of integrated aviation solutions. “We look forward to partnering with SSAI to support the U.S. Army’s aviation mission which will increase employment in the local communities.”
The work will be performed by SSAI and BAE Systems personnel in SSAI’s new facility to be opened in Huntsville, Ala., as well as the BAE Systems hangar in Albertville, Ala., and offices in Huntsville, Ala.
