AVCOM are pleased to announce that during the first 2 years of the AVCOM/ TLS Advisor Agreement which commenced in March 2013 there has been a 7 times growth in UK Customer Accounts and in excess of 10 times financial return increase.
TLS is responsible for supporting AVCOM in 35 countries around the world and discussions are being held with a number of opportunities located in these countries.
Business growth has continued in North America and AVCOM have just been awarded a $37 Million Air Force Contract for Obsolescence Management Support
The Air Force awarded AVCOM a three-year contract to provide Obsolescence Management support for several complex systems and platforms, including aircraft, vehicles, machines, and electronics.
The initial award is $3 million with a total value for the three-year contract at about $37 million. The government received this one offer for the contract work, Harold Taylor, an Air Force Sustainment Center contracting officer said in an email response to Defense Daily.
BAE will use its web-based Advanced Component Obsolescence Management (AVCOM) tool to forecast when parts become obsolete or too expensive. The system then finds replacements for the marketplace.
“In addition to supporting mission readiness, AVCOM delivers significant savings for the total cost of a system or platform by efficiently resolving difficult part obsolescence issues and providing advanced planning capabilities for managing the full life-cycle needs of a product,” DeEtte Gray, president of BAE Systems’ Intelligence & Security sector, said in a statement.
AVCOM has held the Obsolescence Management contract for the Air Force’s Strategic Alternative Sourcing Program Office for five years.
AVCOM has been used to support several Air Force programs with obsolescence management since 1991, the company said.
This contract work will be performed at BAE facilities in Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Utah.
