FBP outlines air charter service contract for prison inmate in New York

The Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBP): Metropolitan Detention Center, located in Brooklyn, N.Y., needs air charter and ground transportation services for a prison inmate next week. Can you help them out?

The FBP provided full details for the trip and requirements in a contract solicitation released Friday.

The contractor will provide air charter service for two Prison Escort Officers, one inmate, and one medical nurse. Two Basic Life Support ambulances, one aircraft, and a flight crew will also be provided by the contractor.

The contract documents state the prison escorts will weigh between 180 and 200 pounds each, and the inmate will be approximately 240 pounds. A stretcher will be needed for the inmate.

The trip will take place on Jan. 19, the FBP said in the solicitation.

The trip will start with an ambulette service from Gold Crest Care Center in the Bronx, N.Y. to Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. Ambulette service is a means of transportation for patients that do not need medical care. Ideally, it is commonly used for disabled individuals and others with medical conditions like stroke.

The air charter will depart Tetterboro and head for Springfield-Branson National Airport in Missouri.

Following arrival in Missouri, a second ambulette service will be needed from the airport to the United States Medical Center for Federal Prisoners (USMCFP) in Springfield.

Once finished at the USMCFP, the same routes and services will be needed in reverse back to Tetterboro Airport.

The FBP invites companies interested in providing the services to contact their office by Tuesday.
