The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Life Cycle Management Command (AMCOM) has awarded DynCorp International (DI) a contract to provide aviation maintenance services throughout the Theater Aviation Sustainment Manager – OCONUS (TASM-O) region under the Army Field Maintenance (AFM) contract.
“DynCorp International has decades of experience providing Army Aviation field maintenance through the Contract Field Teams (CFT) program,” said Jim Myles, DynCorp International senior vice president, DynAviation. “This experience will be invaluable as we continue to provide superior Army Aviation support within the U.S. and internationally.”

The competitively-awarded hybrid firm fixed price, cost-plus incentive fee, contract has one base year with four, one-year options, and a total contract value of $307.1 million if all options are exercised. The contract was originally awarded in September 2013, but was under protest for three months.
DynCorp International and the AFM Program
DI was also awarded an AFM contract in April 2013 to provide aviation maintenance services throughout the Regional Aviation Sustainment Maintenance – West Region (RASM-W), which includes worksites at Fort Hood, Fort Bliss and other sites in Texas including Killeen, Temple and San Angelo, as well as Fort Riley, Kansas.

Through the CFT program, DI provided mission support and depot-level repair to U.S. military aircraft and weapons systems worldwide. DI and its predecessors have provided services under the CFT program continuously since 1951.
