FD2060-21-33081 PWS

1.0 Description of Services:

1.1 . Objective: This Performance Work Statement (PWS) describes the services required to
augment recovery of C-5M fleet OSS&E requirements satisfied via PDM capabilities. These
include Programmed Depot Maintenance (PDM)/Unscheduled Depot Level
Maintenance (UDLM) services, PDM/UDLM preparations, planned and unplanned
inspections, repairs, and modifications, IAW the enterprise’s current fleet management
approach. This capability will increase depot level maintenance throughput and aircraft
availability in a cost-effective manner to meet warfighter requirements.

1.2 Benefit to USAF:

These services will benefit the USAF by providing a Supplemental Depot
Capability (SDC) for the C-5M platform, enabling U.S. Government (USG) access to available
resources to accomplish critical workloads. A planned contract effort for Programmed Depot
Maintenance (PDM), Dorsal Complex (batman) repair, and Lavatory (LAV) Modification
provides increased capacity for continued execution and recovery of the C-5M fleet’s
requirements. By nature, aircraft unscheduled inspections/repairs/maintenance cannot be
predicted, which disrupts the Air Force Sustainment Center (AFSC) PDM workflow by creating
additional challenges on manpower, facilities, and equipment. C-5M SDC will provide the
USG with added capacity and flexibility to help overcome these challenges.

1.3 Background:

The C-5M Super Galaxy aircraft provides worldwide strategic airlift of
equipment, troops, and weapons in support of U.S. national defense. The platform is in service
with Air Mobility Command and the Air Force Reserve Command, fulfilling a wide range of
operational missions during both peace and wartime situations. PDM provides the fleet with
the required Operational Safety, Suitability & Effectiveness (OSS&E) necessary for ongoing
operations. C-5 PDM was improved and restructured in 2009 to encompass in-depth
inspections including inspections in the fuel tanks and wing root areas. Analytical Condition
Inspections (ACI) are defined within Standard Visual Workcards in TO 1C-5M-6WC-8. While
PDM provides the foundational framework for this effort, several other efforts may be
necessary as required by fleet management/scheduling, such as:

• Unscheduled Depot Level Maintenance (UDLM)
• Lavatory modifications required to meet modern commercial standard
• Dorsal Complex (batman) repair and crack repairs
• Crown skins replacement
• Crack repairs to the inner and outer Pylon-Wing Interfaces (PWI)
• Other potential future C-5M inspections, heavy maintenance, repairs, and modifications
• The total requirement is for up to 16 total programmed (PDM) and/or unscheduled depot

level maintenance (UDLM) events hereafter referred to as “PDM/UDLM services.”

Scope of Requirements: This Performance Work Statement (PWS) defines
PDM/UDLM services for primary support of United States Air Force C-5 aircraft. The total
requirement is for up to 16 total PDM/UDLM services, including the ability to conduct up to 4
simultaneous events (PDM/UDLM services) in work at any time during this contract period.

Depot-Level Maintenance: The level of maintenance consisting of those on-and
off-equipment tasks performed using highly specialized skills, sophisticated shop equipment,
or special facilities of an ALC, contractor facility, or, in some cases, by field teams at an
operating location. Maintenance performed at a depot also includes those organizational and
intermediate-level tasks required to prepare for depot maintenance, and, if negotiated between
the depot and the operating command, scheduled field-level inspections, preventative
maintenance or TCTOs which come due while equipment is at the ALC for PDM

require skills, equipment or facilities not normally possessed by operating locations.

Programmed Depot Maintenance: Inspections and correction of defects that
