1.1 System and Mission Description

    Navy (USN) and Air Force (USAF) C-12s supported under this contract are militarized versions of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified and commercially manufactured Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) King Air 200/1900 and King Air 350-series aircraft. They are high-performance, fixed-wing, pressurized aircraft, powered by twin Pratt & Whitney turboprop engines. The USN/USAF C-12 operate from worldwide locations to provide operational support for (1) rapid, time-sensitive or high-priority movement of personnel and cargo, (2) training pilots, and/or (3) testing assets where needed. The C-12 support roles include range clearance, courier flights, medical evacuation and humanitarian rescue or assistance.

1.2 Purpose

    The purpose of this Performance Work Statement (PWS) is to define the tasks to be accomplished by the Contractor for sustainment of the USN/USAF Fleet of C-12 aircraft. The CLS vendor is expected to partner with the Government and establish agreements with original equipment manufacturers (OEM) for data and technical support in order to reduce the total ownership costs (TOC).

    The CLS contract consists of the Performance Work Statement (PWS) which includes Service-unique requirements, or Annexes (Annex A for Navy C-12, Annex B for Navy TC-12 and Annex C for USAF), and all Appendices and Exhibits; as well as all incorporated portions of the Contractor‟s Technical Proposal (identified on the award document). Annexes amplify service-

    unique requirements and Appendices contain details or lists that identify requirements that may change over time, including site locations (by Service), aircraft and engine type/model/series (T/M/S). Contract deliverables, or reporting requirements, cited in Exhibit A-1 are “CDRLs” for the

    USN and “Reports” for the USAF.

    The list of service-unique publications is provided, but may not be all-inclusive. Projections based upon current and historical data as well as subjective analyses are provided and intended as estimates only. The Government will not guarantee the accuracy or adequacy of any such data, information, estimates, or projections on the date of proposal release.

    available during the reporting period for the month in which the

    aircraft is available for an operational mission.

    ? When inspection requirements do not require a major disassembly

    of the aircraft and, thus, do not affect the mission capability, the

    aircraft is considered to be mission capable during the entire

    portion of the inspection phase of the inspection.

    resulting from, but not limited to, locally enforced restrictions,

    holidays, noise abatement, religious customs, coups, restricted

    access, hostilities, Government restrictions and customs

    clearance delays which were not in existence prior to contract


    Not Mission Capable (NMC) ? The material condition of an aircraft indicating that it is not capable of performing any one of its missions (as defined in the applicable

    MEL/MESL/MESM Appendix F), or when a required maintenance

    action causes the aircraft to be non-airworthy. ? NMC time starts when the Contractor is notified of an inoperable


    ? NMC time ends when the Contractor notifies the On-Site

    Government Representative (OSGR) or Pilot-In-Command (PIC)

    that the aircraft is ready for pre-flight inspection or test flight. ? If the aircraft is determined to be NMC as a result of a pre-flight

    inspection or test flight and the cause is attributable to the original

    fault, NMC time shall continue from the original time of discovery,

    provided the preflight or test flight inspection is performed within

    24 hours after notification is provided to the OSGR or PIC by the


    Performance Work Statement



    ? If panels and equipment are removed to conduct area inspections

    and cannot be replaced within a two-hour time frame, then the

    entire inspection is considered to have impacted mission

    capability and shall be documented as NMC. The two-hour rule

    applies to scheduled maintenance only.

    ? When a new discrepancy is found during pre-flight or test flight,

    NMC time will start when the OSGR notifies the Contractor of the

    inoperable condition.

    ? If a new discrepancy is found when the aircraft is not located at

    the Site (aircraft is off-Site) or when the aircraft is located at the

    Site and Contractor personnel are not available, NMC time will

    start when the Government notifies the Contractor of the

    inoperable condition. In either case, NMC time will start not later

    than one hour after time of discovery/flight termination.

Not Mission Capable Maintenance ? The material condition of an aircraft when it is not available for a (NMCM) mission because of scheduled or unscheduled maintenance as

    required by the PWS.

    ? Scheduled maintenance time for reporting purposes includes

    routine, detail, calendar, engine and special inspections when the

    combination of inspection requirements is such that it requires

    placing the aircraft in an inoperable condition. Scheduled

    maintenance time does not include time spent performing daily,

    preflight, turnaround, post-flight or corrosion inspections when the

    requirements do not require placing the aircraft in an inoperable


Not Mission Capable (NMC) ? Discrepancies against any system on the MEL/MESL/MESM will MEL/MESL/MESM be considered NMC for the purpose of determining MC rates, if

    the discrepancy is not corrected within ten (10) calendar days for

    CONUS aircraft and twenty (20) calendar days for OCONUS

    aircraft. After the stated time period expires, the aircraft will be

    carried as NMC even though the local Commander may elect to

    fly the aircraft (if other grounding criteria do not exist). If the

    Government elects to fly an aircraft against which reduced

    payment under this provision is being assessed, the Contractor

    shall be exempt from reduced payment for that aircraft for the

    duration of the flight.

    ? Any discrepancy against any system on the MEL/MESL/MESM

    will be included in the Contractor‟s Daily Status Report.

Not Mission Capable Supply The material condition of an aircraft when it is not available for a

    (NMCS) mission because parts or material are not available as required by the

    should normally be discovered and repaired at operating sites prior to

    ACI induction.

On-Condition Replacement Parts Those parts and material replaced based upon their condition (i.e.

    & Material broken, worn, out of tolerance limits, configuration change, etc.)

Out-of-Reporting (synonymous Applicable for contract reporting purposes only and is used to account

    with NRT) for aircraft that are undergoing ACI, in preservation, etc.

Partial Mission Capable (PMC) ? The condition status that indicates the aircraft is capable of safe

    flight and can perform at least one, but not all, of its missions

    prescribed because of an inoperable/missing item listed in the

    MEL/MESL/MESM (Appendix F), excluding discrepancies against


    Performance Work Statement


    any system in which aircraft is considered NMC.

    ? Recording of PMC time starts when it is first known that a

    discrepancy exists, except when caused by an in-flight

    malfunction, then the time starts at the termination of the flight.

    PMC time stops when maintenance has been successfully
