S&K Aerospace the Montana-based and tribally owned business has just announced that they’ve landed a $269 million dollars contract modification from the U.S. Air Force in support of the service branch’s Parts and Repair Ordering System IV. The contract is specifically designed to address the continuity of service requirements, at least for the time being until the Air Force decides and issues a follow-on source says a statement released by the Defense Department last Monday.
The contract was awarded by the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center and will cover the foreign military sales to over 107 countries worldwide and includes the services to be conducted in Georgia all the way through March 14, 2022. The Parts and Repair Ordering System IV team includes Parts & Repair Technical Services and General Dynamics who are partners that provide spares supplies, technical services, component maintenance, task order support and a myriad of other support services. S&K Aerospace is headquartered on the Flathead Reservation in Northwest Montana and is actually owned by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.
They have been providing support to the federal government in regards to maintenance, repair, overhauling and engineering logistics. With a proprietary web-based management information system, S&K is able to inform their customers in real-time of exactly where their components are in the supply cycle. S&K Aerospace boasts a deep and broad range of expertise in the logistics analysis and life-cycle support planning as well as engineering and technical support. In combination with world-class training and reliability, S&K Aerospace has been the premier logistics and technical provider for all domestic and ally Air Force units.
The Parts and Repair Ordering System IV procurement system is managed by the Air Force Security Assistance Center in direct support of Foreign Military Sales and is currently in the 5th generation of the program which has expanded into a tri-service effort in support of FMS customers through procurement and maintenance support. The Parts and Repair Ordering System IV is linked to buyers worldwide and networks of approved vendors. Effective of March 23, 2015 the Parts and Repair Ordering System IV primary warehouse has been relocated to Warner Robins in Georgia.
