St Ignatius, MT – The U.S. Air Force has awarded S&K Aerospace, LLC a $4.2B contract for the Parts and Repair Ordering System (PROS) V Program. The single-award contract is the latest generation of the PROS Program and was won by S&K Aerospace under a full and open competition. S&K Aerospace was competitively awarded the predecessor PROS IV contract in March 2012. As the PROS prime contractor, S&K conducts procurement activities required to provide logistic requirements support to over 90 Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers. PROS provides allied customers the best value for part support for aging weapon systems and out-of-production/obsolete parts in support of their weapon systems.
In addition to S&K Aerospace, our PROS V Team includes Parts and Repair Technical Services, Inc. (P.A.R.T.S. Inc.) of Stockbridge, Georgia. P.A.R.T.S. Inc. is a privately-owned company headquartered in Stockbridge, GA with offices located in Warner Robins GA. They specialize in providing material procurement, training, technical services, logistic support, and export services.
The Program is a tri-service (Air Force, Army, Navy) effort supporting FMS customers through procurement of spare parts/supplies and maintenance (repair) support for a wide range of hard to support items as well as providing a contracting vehicle for specialized technical services through task orders. The PROS Program is the U.S. Air Force’s solution to providing FMS procurement and repair support long after the support of certain weapons systems is eliminated from the U.S. inventory. “The success of the program relies on our ability to process a significant volume of customer requirements in a relatively short period of time to meet the requirements of the contract,” said Tim Horne, Director of PROS Programs. “As well as managing a well-qualified and diverse vendor base to satisfy the wide-range of needs.”
The PROS V contract includes options which, if exercised, will result in a 15-year period of performance— a 5-year base period, 5-one year options, and a 5-year close-out period. Work will be primarily performed out of the S&K Aerospace facilities in Warner Robins, Georgia. The Air Force Security Assistance Center (AFSAC) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB), Dayton, Ohio, is the contracting and managing activity.
“The objectives of the PROS contracts are to provide timely support, competitive pricing, quality service and superior program management to the FMS customer,” noted Tom Acevedo, CEO of S&K Technologies, Inc. “As a global leader in supply chain management, our goal is to provide complete defense platform sustainment for our FMS allies.”
The full range of S&Ks technical support for FMS customers includes supply and procurement service, warehousing, fleet management, maintenance planning, maintenance service, technical and engineering services, obsolescence management, air vehicle integrity, training, and financial/ program management support.
