PROGRAM BACKGROUND

The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) intends to establish a sole-source, follow-on basic ordering agreement (BOA) with The Boeing Company (“Boeing”), which provides for the issuance of fixed-price, cost-reimbursement, or time-and-materials orders for United States Navy and foreign military sales (FMS) requirements.

Each task/delivery order issued under this BOA will designate an applicable delivery date or period of performance. The anticipated agreement will be updated annually in accordance with FAR 16.702(b)(3).

ANTICIPATED CONTRACT TYPE

Per FAR 16.703(a), a BOA is a written instrument of understanding, negotiated between an agency, contracting activity, or contracting office and a contractor. A BOA is not a contract. It is anticipated that fixed-price, cost-reimbursement, and time-and-materials orders will be eligible contract types for orders issued under this BOA, to be specified in each applicable task/delivery order. 

REQUIRED CAPABILITIES

Task/delivery orders issued under this BOA will provide the required supplies and services in support of the following programs: F/A-18, EA-18G, P-8A, T-45, AV-8B Harrier, E-6B, Air Combat Electronic Systems, Harpoon, Standoff Land Attack Missile-Expanded Response (SLAM-ER), C-40A Clipper, Direct Attack JDAM/LJDAM, and P-8A Air Anti-Submarine Warfare weapon systems and subsystems.
