This is a Market Survey to attain information, comments, and capabilities from industry in accordance with FAA Acquisition Management System (AMS) Policy that will aid in the formation of an acquisition strategy and award for the procurement of Aircrew Training Management.

The responses to this Market Survey will be used for informational purposes only. This is not a screening information request or a request for proposal of any kind. The FAA is not seeking or accepting unsolicited proposals. The FAA will not pay for any information received or costs incurred in preparing the response to this Market Survey. Therefore any cost associated with the Market Survey submission is solely at the interested vendors’ expense.

At this time, the nature of the competition has been determined a sole source effort. This is due to an immediate constraint for the existing Software.

Background:

The FAA manages crew training and currency records for about 200 crewmembers. Currently, FAA must store paper copies of all FAR 135 training documents for all crewmembers and then must manually enter all qualifications into other systems for dispatch reasons. This process is open to human error or disruption of manual entry due to loss of personnel activity during a pandemic or other national emergency. Because of these vulnerabilities, FAA is pursuing an automated solution.
