Boeing Submits Proposal for $5B Special Ops Logistics Support Contract

7th August 2009 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Boeing Company today submitted its Final Proposal Revision (FPR) in response to the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) request for proposals for the $5 billion Special Operations Forces Support Activity (SOFSA) contract.

SOFSA is a 10-year program that provides comprehensive logistics support services for virtually any item unique to the SOF. USSOCOM issued the FPR request in early June.

“Our team has brought together tremendous capabilities from across the Boeing enterprise and our industry partners to support the SOF warrior, and we continue to demonstrate our ability to manage complex programs,” said Dennis Muilenburg, president, Boeing Global Services & Support. “We have put together a solution for the customer that meets all requirements.”

Boeing and its SOFSA teammates, Computer Sciences Corp. (CSC) and K-2 Solutions, have proven leadership in logistics support services, including experience in maintenance and repairs, supply-chain and asset management, and information technology.

Boeing already provides USSOCOM with the majority of its rotary-wing fleet, including the MH-47G Chinook, AH-6 Little Bird, CV-22 Osprey and A-160 Hummingbird platforms. CSC provides experience supporting the warfighter on the ground and through logistics systems. It has world-class business systems and is the logistics information system provider for the US Army. K-2 Solutions brings extensive experience in SOF logistics and operations.

“We have had several competitive wins in our new Defense & Government Services division,” said Muilenburg, “and we are striving to add this one.” Boeing received a $250 million services contract for USSOCOM's Mid-Endurance Unmanned Aerial System in May.
