“The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is soliciting Industry interest and capability to provide engineering and related services to develop the Logistics Center Support System (LCSS) and Configuration Management Automation (CMA) programs on the COTS IFS enterprise software platform at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City, OK. “
“Interested parties are asked to review the attached Request for Information (RFI) and Draft Statement of Work (SOW) and respond with the requested information. Comments on the Draft SOW are also welcome.”
“The FAA currently receives engineering support for the IFS platforming support of the LCSS program. Under a potential acquisition, the FAA will acquire services to continue support for current and future LCSS requirements, but also expand the use of the platform to accommodate the CMA program.
LCSS is a mission support IT program that re-engineers and automate the FAA’s logistics management processes. The goal of the LCSS Program is two-fold: to replace the legacy system and increase the efficiency of the FAA’s supply chain management process by leveraging best industry practices. LCSS is directly integrated with several other FAA initiatives to facilitate a comprehensive NAS supply support solution (i.e. 2D bar-coding, RMLS, iLOG, etc.).
The CMA program will replace the capability in WebCM with updated functionality consistent with industry best practices for lifecycle management of assets. CMA will provide:
- An automated, integrated and cost-effective enterprise solution to support CM of FAA assets and investments
- A single point of access with insight and traceability to configuration baselines
- The ability to effectively manage business rules, trace, predict and manage an asset’s status, opportunities, and risks, during any phase of the assets’ lifecycle
The FAA intends to procure services to directly support the FAA engineering team located at the FAA Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The FAA anticipates an award of a single contract, no determination has been made to the type of contract or length. The FAA also anticipates general scope of work to include, but not limited to the following:
- Program management
- IFS solution development and integration
- Information system security
- Test and evaluation
- Technical documentation
- Implementation and in-service management…”
