Airman Jacob Rolnick Air National Guard

GERMANTOWN, Md.; October 8, 2020 – The Air Force has selected Amentum, a leading contractor to U.S. federal and allied governments, to provide maintenance services for all fixed-wing aircraft platforms under a new multi-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract. The Aircraft Maintenance Enterprise Solution (ACES) contract vehicle has a maximum value of $14 billion over 10 years.

“We are excited to continue serving our Air Force customers under the ACES contract,” said Dr. Karl Spinnenweber, executive vice president and general manager of Amentum’ s Mission Readiness Group. “Amentum is currently providing critical services to Air Force clients across the globe and looks forward to using ACES to expand our service offerings.”

Amentum will compete for task orders under the ACES contract providing aircraft maintenance services for Air Education and Training Command customers as well as agile support for emerging Air Force requirements. The contract will be available to customers from all Air Force major commands and may include customers from other agencies with aircraft located within the continental U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii.

Basic requirements for aircraft maintenance services will be established at the contract level and could include:

• Organizational (O)-level maintenance for any aviation platform, excluding rotary-wing, tiltrotor, and remotely piloted aircraft (RPA);
• Intermediate (I)-level maintenance: due to extensive common use across aircraft platforms, customers may include I-level maintenance for any mission design series aircraft at any specific location, including rotary wing, tiltrotor, and RPAs;
• Maintenance support activities, such as sunshade, static display and aerospace ground equipment maintenance; corrosion control and aircraft painting; munitions management and storage; and maintenance recovery team services.
