The CMMARS follow-on contract vehicle will be used by several Government entities such as Naval Fleet activities, and NAVAIR Program Offices. Non-Navy customers will also be able to use the established contract vehicle. The COMFRC Acquisition Group will support Government customers in the development of acquisition documentation, requirements development, Requests for Proposals (RFPs), conduct of source selections, retention and the use of lessons learned. The COMFRC Acquisition Group has two primary goals: improving the quality of contracted services and shortening the procurement lead time to award. This is the first RFI issued for planning purposes for the CMMARS Follow-on contract. Both large and small businesses are encouraged to respond. The CMMARS follow-on will be a Multiple Award Contract (MAC) Indefinite-Delivery Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract. The CMMARS follow-on MAC and associated task orders will be used to procure CLS for maintenance, modification, aircrew and related services for aviation platforms and associated equipment. Additionally, the CMMARS follow-on MAC will be used for heavy depot maintenance requirements and workload to augment the organic capabilities of the depots. The Government plans to award the CMMARS follow-on under one or more of the following NAICS Codes:488190: Aircraft ferrying services, aircraft inspection services, aircraft maintenance and repair services (except factory conversion, factory overhaul, factory rebuilding), aircraft testing services, fueling aircraft on a contract or fee basis, independent pilot, air (except owner-operators), inspection services, aircraft testing services; 336411: Aircraft Manufacturing (manufacturing or assembling complete aircraft; developing and making aircraft prototypes; aircraft conversion (i.e., major modifications to systems); and complete aircraft overhaul and rebuilding (i.e., periodic restoration of aircraft to approved design specifications);336412: Aircraft engine repair/overhaul, Aircraft engine rebuilding; and336413: Aircraft Propeller repair/overhaul and Aircraft Landing Gear repair/overhaul.
