This is a follow-up from the last RFI for CCR released in Feb 2022 (Reference previous RFI Notice ID: Amended_RFI_02-07-2022)

PURPOSE

The previous RFI was used is to solicit industry options and possible solutions for providing a replacement of the KC-135 Fuel Management System and the Flight Display System as well as growth for display capabilities to support aircraft into 2060 and beyond. The purpose of this RFI is to solicit industry solutions for annual kit production as well as installation capabilities. Additionally as part of this RFI, the government is soliciting feedback on the draft Systems Requirements Document (SRD).

THIS IS A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ONLY:

This RFI is issued solely for informational and planning purposes. It does not constitute a solicitation (Request for Proposal or Request for Quotations) or a promise to issue a solicitation in the future. As stipulated in FAR 15.201(e), responses to this notice are not considered offers, shall not be used as a proposal, and cannot be accepted by the Government to form a binding contract.

The Government requests that non‐proprietary information be submitted in response to this RFI. However, should proprietary information be submitted, it should be marked “PROPRIETARY”, and will be handled accordingly. The Government shall not be liable for or suffer any consequential damages for any proprietary information not properly identified. Proprietary information will be safeguarded in accordance with the applicable Government regulations. Respondents are advised that only an Air Force Contracting Officer is legally authorized to commit the Government to the obligation of funds.
