The Ogden Air Logistics Center (OO-ALC) 508th Aircraft Sustainment Wing, Training Systems Division, intends to exercise contract provisions to extend Contract FA8223-08-C-0002 based upon customer request. FA8223-08-C-0002 provides engineering and logistical support for the RSAF F-15C Mission Trainers. The period of performance is 1 January 2008 through 31 December 2010, the proposed extension will extend the period of performance through 30 June 2011. The contract provides on-site operator/maintainers and qualified instructors through in-Kingdom subcontractors at three sites, as well as software and hardware engineering support, depot level maintenance, attending program reviews in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and other meetings as necessary. A SECRET clearance is mandatory to support this effort.

The RSAF F-15C Mission Trainers are a derivative of the USAF F-15C Distributive Mission Trainers developed by McDonnell Douglas Training Systems (MDTS), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Boeing Corporation. The United States Air Force (USAF) system was developed under a Commercial Training Systems Support contract; as such, the Government owns no data rights to the RSAF Mission Trainers. Interested parties must negotiate data rights with MDTS to support this effort prior to the period of performance.

The Saudi Government requires the use of Saudi nationals/Saudi companies as part of a "Saudiazation" program. The prime contractor will be required to utilize Saudi owned subcontractors to perform all on-site work. The on-site support will include all maintenance and operation for the two Mission Trainers at each site. Qualified F-15C instructors are required; requirements are 500 hours minimum as an RSAF or USAF fighter pilot. Manning levels will be required to support 8 hour days (three training slots) at King Abdul Aziz Airbase, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, King Khalid Air Base, Tabuk, Saudi Arabia, and King Fahad Air Base, Taif, Saudi Arabia. The prime contractor must obtain required Technology Assistance Agreements through the U.S. State Department prior to the period of performance.
