Logistics and services company VSE has secured a task order worth up to $28.5m to provide fleet maintenance to the US Air Force (USAF) aircraft.

The task order has been awarded under the USAF Contract Field Teams (CFT) indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract. It focuses on providing support to the 314th Air Wing at Little Rock Air Force Base (AFB) in Little Rock, Arkansas, US.

The current deal comprises a one-year base performance period and a one-year option period, as well as an additional six-month option period.

“The USAF CFT programme offers rapid deployment and long-term support services for the maintenance, repair and upgrade of aircraft, vehicles, weapons systems and other equipment.”

As part of the task order, the company will be responsible for delivering organisational maintenance, repair, and overhaul services on a fleet of C-130J Super Hercules four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft.

The USAF CFT programme offers rapid deployment and long-term support services for the maintenance, repair and upgrade of aircraft, vehicles, weapons systems and other equipment that would help support the US Government’s war readiness requirements.

VSE Federal Services group president J.R. Brown said: “We are proud to serve the US pilots, loadmasters and international partner allies who train at the largest C-130J flight training centre in the Department of Defense.

“We have provided vital maintenance and modernisation work under the CFT programme since 2009 and we look forward to extending our services to the 314th Air Wing.”

The CFT contracts support several requirements generated by the USAF, US Army, US Navy, US Coast Guard, Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies.
