DynCorp International has been awarded a task order under the Logistics Worldwide (LOGWORLD) multiple award contract from the General Services Administration (GSA) to provide engineering support services as part of the Storage, Analysis, Failure evaluation, and Reclamation (SAFR) Program at the Corpus Christi Army Depot.
“The DI team has successfully performed on this program since 1989, providing the highest level of support to maintenance program and item managers at the Aviation and Missile Command Logistics Center and the Corpus Christi Army Depot,” said Jim Myles, DynCorp International senior vice president, DynAviation.
DI team members will support the aviation repair maintenance process through the collection, warehousing, inspection fault-data collection, remediation engineering failure analysis, engineering repair development, and reclamation of supply parts for repair development dispositions.
The competitively-awarded task order has one base year with four, one-year options, and a total potential value of $5 million.
The Storage, Analysis, Failure evaluation, and Reclamation (SAFR) Program was developed by the Aviation and Missile Command and the Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center faced an increase in parts demands for T700 engine blades. After consulting with the Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC), their solution was to ship more than 1,500 reparable turbine blades to the Corpus Christi T700 engine maintenance program for inspection, repair and return to service in accordance with T700 Depot Maintenance Work Requirements and Maintenance Engineering Call guidance.
Their solution not only solved the engine parts demand issue, but also resulted in a large cost savings for the U.S. Army.
According to Mark A. Velazquez, chief engineer of the SAFR program, “The program collects ‘select mission essential’ candidate parts that are rejected from maintenance programs that no longer meet current maintenance repair or program criteria to support engineering damage tolerance relief analysis, repair development and parts reclamation.”
DI team members have worked with the SAFR program at the Corpus Christi Army Depot for nearly 25 years and were recognized for their exemplary service in 2012 with an AAA award.
