for the

Strategic Alternate Sourcing Program Office (SASPO)

Commercially Used & Overhauled (CU&OH) Support

There is no solicitation available at this time. Requests for a solicitation will not receive a response.

North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code: 336413 (Other Aircraft Parts and Auxiliary Equipment Manufacturing)

SBA Size Standard: 1,250 employees


SASPO is conducting market research to determine expansion of the CU&OH program. Vendors must be an approved repair source for these items in order to be considered as a "qualified" source of repair. Potential sources of repair shall be capable of furnishing all labor, materials, facilities and equipment required to accomplish the overhaul of the item(s) listed below. However, the intent of this RFI is to gauge interest in expanding the program to include the following criteria as a new means to purchase CU&OH material, and if there is a need for a strategic contract.

Method 1 - Purchase the CU&OH parts from a source qualified by the USAF to repair the subject item. The purchase can be made from the qualified source or a distributer for the qualified source.

Requirements for purchasing CU&OH parts using method 1:

1. The supplier must provide a cover letter including the method being used to purchase the CU&OH parts and all applicable information from MQR-PSD-1, section 8.3

2. The supplier must provide a repair source agreement from the subject PN with the qualified source cage. The provided cage must match a valid cage on a current AFMC Form 762 (Contract Repair Screening Analysis Worksheet)

3. The supplier must be ISO 9001 or AS9100 certified.

4. For any life limited parts the supplier must provide a comprehensive life cycle history.

5. The supplier must provide a Certificate of Conformance (CoC), such as an ATA Specification 106 "Part of Material Certification Form", 8130-3 "Authorized Release Certificate", or similar form (with like information) containing a non-incident statement, certifying that the items were manufactured by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), and were not removed from engines that operated in volcanic ash, radiation exposure or submerged.

Method 2 - Purchase the CU&OH parts from a FAA part 145 certified repair source. Using this method the purchase of Critical Safety Items (CSI) or any life limited parts is NOT approved. This method is currently only being used to purchase CU&OH parts in which the USAF does not have a qualified repair source.

Requirements for purchasing CU&OH parts using method 2:

1. The supplier must provide a cover letter including the method being used to purchase the CU&OH parts and all available traceability paperwork showing the OEM birth, ownership history of the item, and Non-incident document. PMA parts are not authorized.

2. The supplier must have an authorized DOT FAA Air Agency Certificate to overhaul the subject part.

3. The supplier must be AS9110, AS9120, and ISO 9001 or AS9100 certified.

4. The mechanic/individual that approved the article for return to service must have a FAA Repairman Certificate with a "Return to Service Authority". The supplier must provide a Certificate of Conformance (CoC) and 8130-3 "Authorized Release Certificate" stating that the assembly is authorized for airworthiness return to service, has complied with conformity inspections of the engine manual, and the processes of overhaul complied with FAA Part 145 guidelines. Any additional technical guidelines such as Technical Orders, Service Bulletins, or customer purchase order specified requirements are also complied with.

5. The supplier must include a non-incident statement if one was received from the purchased source, certifying the item was not removed from engines that operated in volcanic ash, radiation exposure or submerged.

Currently, this program has only consisted of procurements of refurbished CFM-56-2A / F108 engine piece parts; however, the government is considering the addition of the following four engines piece parts.

?A) T56 - T501-D

?B) TF33 - JT3D-7

?C) TF34 - CF34

?D) J85 - CJ610
