The Department of State’s Office of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement at the U.S. Embassy in Bogota, Colombia, is seeking potential sources capable of providing five Bell 206B3 helicopters for the Colombian National Police (CNP).
All aircraft will be delivered to, assembled (if required), and test flown, by the contractor, in Bogota, Colombia, at the CNP Aviation Base in Guaymaral, Santa Fe de Bogota, Cundimarca (approximately 12 kilometers north of Bogota).
"The U.S. government recognizes that the Bell 206B3 is no longer in production; therefore this will be a procurement of helicopters that are not in a new condition,” the State Department said in contract documents released Monday.
Companies interested in supplying the helicopters are requested to respond to the State Department by Jan. 17.
