Akima subsidiary RiverTech has been awarded a Pacific Air Forces Aviation Squadrons Administrative Support contract by the U.S. Air Force.
With an estimated value of $45.7 million over 3 years, the contract calls on the company to provide functional support at eight Air Force bases.
Akima’s aviation professionals have long history supported the missions of the Air Force, said Scott Rauer, president of Akima’s Facilities Solutions Group.
“The functional expertise we deliver behind the scenes allows aircrew members to focus on their primary missions of flying and fighting—improving aircrew retention and delivering increased value to our customers,” he added.
The contract was awarded under the OASIS Small Business indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract. RiverTech is to provide a range of operations support functions traditionally provided by pilots and weapons system officers, including aircrew scheduling, operations training, standardizations and evaluations.
The company is to provide support at eight Air Force Bases in the Pacific Rim, including Kadena AB (Japan), Eielson AFB (Alaska), Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (Alaska), Misawa AB (Japan), Osan AB (Korea), Kunsan AB (Korea), Yokota AB (Japan), and Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (Hawaii).
