Coast Guard seeks parts supplier for C-27J fleet

Through the National Defense Authorization Act of 2014, the Coast Guard has acquired 14 C-27J aircraft from the Air Force. The C-27J is a medium size military transport aircraft that is manufactured by Alenia Aermacchi in Italy.

The Coast Guard has established the C-27J Asset Project Office (APO) in Elizabeth City, N.C., to make these aircraft ready for use. The C-27J APO will support the oversight of the process from acquisition and missionization of the C-27J to sustainment.

On Wednesday, the Coast Guard released a solicitation document to establish a firm-fixed price contract to purchase new aircraft parts to support the HC-27J.

“This requirement must be restricted to authorized sources of the Original Equipment Manufacturer or firms who can effectively demonstrate their ability to provide the components and obtain the proprietary data required meeting form, fit, and function of the units,” officials said in contract documents.
