Review of San Antonio Depot Solicitation
OGC-98-49: Published: May 14, 1998. Publicly Released: May 14, 1998.
- Full Report:
Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the allocation of depot workloads currently performed at the closing San Antonio and Sacramento Air Logistics Centers.
GAO noted that: (1) on March 30, 1998, the Air Force issued a solicitation for the purpose of conducting a public-private competition for various depot-level workloads being performed at the San Antonio Air Logistics Center at Kelly Air Force Base, Texas; (2) the solicitation provides for a single award, for a period up to 15 years, for the performance of workloads for the T56, TF39, and F100 engines and fuel accessories; (3) based on GAO's review of the San Antonio solicitation and concerns raised informally by potential offerors, GAO found that the Air Force has not, as of May 5, provided a sufficient basis to show that soliciting the workloads on a combined basis is necessary to satisfy its needs; and (4) GAO found that the solicitation is in compliance with applicable laws, including the provisions of 10 U.S.C. 2469a.
