Arinc Engineering Services LLC has been awarded two acquisition support contracts for U.S. Air Force Foreign Military Sales programs.
Under a July 22 contract just announced, Arinc will provide program management, acquisition and system development support for the U.S. Military’s Joint Cargo Aircraft, the C-27J Spartan.
The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity task order from the General Services Administration has a maximum value of $23 million over five years.
Arinc’s customer is the C-27J Program Office, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, the contractor announced today.
The C-27J contract follows another FMS contract worth about $20 million, also awarded to Arinc in July, for acquisition management of the Air Force C-130J Super Hercules Transport.
Arinc is already supporting C-130J purchases for Norway, India, Iraq, and Israel under the FMS program.
Arinc’s work under both contracts will be performed primarily at Wright-Patterson AFB, with management from the company’s office in Dayton, Ohio.
In 2007, the U.S. government selected the C-27J as the Joint Cargo Aircraft, and management responsibility was formally transferred to the Air Force in a ceremony in Dayton on the same day Arinc received its contract awards, the company statement said.
Arinc Inc., of Annapolis, Md., a portfolio company of The Carlyle Group, ranks No. 49
on Washington Technology’s 2010 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government contractors.
