Rockwell Collins to provide supply chain management support at Robins Air Force Base maintenance depot

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa. Officials at Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) tapped Rockwell Collins to provide support for the Robins Air Force Base maintenance depot under a $22 million contract.

As the DLA’s first performance-based logistics (PBL) contract with the Air Force, the initial contract will run for three years with Rockwell Collins providing total supply chain management for replacement parts on the AN/ARC-171, AN/ARC-190, and AN/ARR-85 airborne communication products.

The PBL agreement will bring improved readiness to the Air Force by ensuring greater visibility to demand at the depot maintenance line, reduced inventory and infrastructure costs, value added logistics, engineering support and obsolescence management, officials say.
