Late 2017, Boeing was awarded a $480,421,520 fixed-price-incentive-firm contract for the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) repair support services effort.

This programme is comprised of logistical in-Kingdom repair and return of parts for F-15C/D/S/SA fleets and repair of aerospace ground equipment, hush house/open air test cell equipment for the RSAF F-15 programme.

Repair support services will be performed at various original equipment manufacturer locations within the US and within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), and is expected to be completed by 20 June 2025.

This contract involves 100% foreign military sales (FMS) to the KSA and is the result of a competitive source selection effort, where four offers were received.

This contract includes a 24-month base period, five 12-month option periods and one six-month option period. This is not a multi-year contract.

Boeing was furthermore awarded a $1,232,654,575 modification to a previously awarded firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for the manufacture and delivery of 10 Lot 9 full-rate production P-8A aircraft, seven for the US Navy (USN) and three for the government of the United Kingdom.

In addition, this modification also provides for Lot 9 segregable efforts consisting of unknown obsolescence, class I change assessments, and obsolescence monitoring.

Work will be performed in various locations around the UK and the US and is expected to be completed in December 2020.

Fiscal 2018 aircraft procurement (USN) and FMS funds in the amount of $1,232,654,575 will be obligated at time of award, none of which will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

This contract combines purchase for the USN ($858,242,867; 69.7%) and FMS partners ($374,411,708; 30.3 percent).

Naval Air Systems Command, Patuxent River, MD/USA, is the contracting activity.
