The Naval Air Systems Command, PMA-265 (F/A-18 and EA-18G Program Office), is soliciting information from industry to determine potential contractors who have the skills, experience, qualifications, and knowledge required to successfully execute the U.S. Navy (USN) and Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) F/A-18E/F and EA-18G Service Life Assessment Program/Service Life Extension Program (SLAP/SLEP). The SLAP/SLEP encompasses a series of phases intended to define the deficient locations and necessary actions to extend the service-life of the USN F/A-18E/F and EA-18G aircraft as well as the RAAF variant of the EA-18G aircraft. Supplies and services under the SLAP/SLEP program are critical to achieving Chief of Naval Operations strike fighter inventory goals and to extending the service life of the USN and RAAF fleet of aircraft. During SLAP/SLEP, the airframe structures and flight controls and subsystems will be the areas of focus. Efforts will include multiple fleet teardowns, a combination of extension plans, and flight control surface evaluation. The purpose of these efforts is to provide the engineering services required for life extension modifications and other risk mitigation measures needed to ensure safety of flight. These requirements consist of: non-recurring engineering for engineering change proposals; incorporation of airframe and accessory changes; and replacement, inspections, and/or incorporation of fatigue algorithms into the existing Structural Appraisal of Fatigue Effects database; along with program management support. The contractor shall be responsible for obtaining all manufacturing drawings and proprietary specification data necessary to support the aircraft from The Boeing Company.
