AEI for Installation Support
Thursday, 17 October 1996
(2) Application. This process can be used very successfully for projects under 0,000.
For Contracting Offices that are Interim FACNET Certified (an electronic means of advertising
for bids), the threshold is 0,000 using FACNET. Some of the areas in which SAP may be
(a) Replace windows, doors and or architectural hardware.
(b) Repair substrate for damaged exterior and interior substrates I.E. damaged cement
plaster, removal of sheathing, replacement of gypsum ball board.
(c) Repair damaged floor, walls, ceiling and install new finishes.
(d) Replace counters, cabinets storage racks etc..
(e) Install air conditioning units for a classroom or office.
(f) Replace lighting fixtures and outlets in rooms.
(g) Install concrete pads for mechanical and electrical equipment.
(h) Install new ladders with safety fixtures leading to roofs.
(3) Advantages. This procedure has an advantage over other types of procedures, because
it enables design agencies to help their customers with the smallest of jobs. With the increase of
the SAP and PRC to 0,000, more repair work projects can be developed with substantial
savings for the customers as well as reduction in design solicitation and reproduction costs by use
of contracts that have less paper.
b. Requirements Contracts (RC). RC is similar to an IDC, except that there is no minimum
guarantee. Also, a RC may permit faster deliveries when production lead time is involved,
because contractors are usually willing to maintain limited stocks when the Government will
obtain ALL of its actual purchase requirements from the contractor. For example, if the
Government awards a RC for paving at a installation, then the installation must issue all paving
requirements at the installation to that requirements contractor. There is no flexibility. A
Delivery Order cannot be issued under a JOC or a T&M contract for paving to a military
installation that has a paving RC in place. (See Part V, Enclosure 4 for an example.)
c. Requirements Contracts with Engineered Technical Requirements (RC/ETR).
