Array Information Technology has been awarded a contract to help US Air Force (USAF) in the modernisation of its depot maintenance accounting and production system-time and accounting (DMAPS TAA) system.

Array Information Technology has been awarded a contract to help US Air Force (USAF) in the modernisation of its depot maintenance accounting and production system-time and accounting (DMAPS TAA) system.

Secured along with teammate, Serco North America, the competitively awarded contract requires the company to provide application services support to DMAPS TAA, a vital logistics data system that serves as the primary source for capturing and managing authoritative data for maintenance personnel work hours in the air logistics complexes (ALCs).

The proposal submitted by the Array team for the four-year contract leverages several years of experience supporting the air force mission, according to the company.

"DMAPS TAA gives us the opportunity to make real improvements in the timeliness and accountability of depot maintenance data."

Array Defense Solutions vice-president Jon Dittmer said the contract for sustainment of the critical logistics data systems builds on long and productive relationships the company and its partners share with the air force.

Array Defense client executive Mark Douglas added: ''Along with our work on the maintenance planning and execution (MP&E) system that reports air force and commercial maintenance workloads to Congress, DMAPS TAA gives us the opportunity to make real improvements in the timeliness and accountability of depot maintenance data.''

The value and additional details of the task order, which represents the company's overall fourth major air force logistics system contract in 2013, was not disclosed.

Array secured two competitively selected contracts to assist USAF in upgrade of its two top tier logistics data systems, including the maintenance planning and execution (MP&E) system and the integrated logistics system-supply (ILS-S) in May this year.

The MP&E and ILS-S contracts have five-year and four-year performance periods respectively.
