Boeing secures $427 Million Defense Logistics Agency contract

The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has awarded Boeing a five-year $427 million sole-source contract to provide and manage consumable material for F/A-18 depot maintenance with the option for five additional years.

This is an extension of the DLA/Boeing Captains of Industry program and the program’s first depot contract supporting the US Navy and Marine Corps, bringing the value of the program to $3.2 billion.

Boeing will provide consumable materials used for structural repair and modification of legacy F/A-18 Hornets at five US Navy and US Marine Corps depots and the Boeing Cecil Field Site in Jacksonville, Florida. Boeing field service representatives will be co-located at these sites to provide technical support and expertise.

The DLA Captains of Industry program leverages Boeing’s capabilities and relationships with suppliers to improve material availability, provide onsite technical support and engineering support, which will reduce aircraft maintenance cycle time and get the aircraft back to the war fighter faster.

Rick Robinson, Director of Boeing Global Supply Chain Services: “Through this contract we will improve material availability and resolve technical issues quickly to alleviate long lead times on parts, helping our customers to reduce cycle times on aircraft maintenance

 “We are proud to work with the DLA, US Navy and US Marine Corps to keep legacy Hornets ready for critical missions.”
