Q: I am an FAA Internal Customer; how do I know if my work qualifies for 2020 services?

A: Work that is consistent with the products and services outlined in either category to support NextGen and non-NextGen initiatives may qualify for 2020 services. Note that 2020 does not include full scale development, maintenance and operations of NAS systems, or work that provides support services to a Program Office that fields and maintains NAS systems. You may refer to the 2020 R&MA and SE Contracts page for examples of Products & Services that 2020 supports.

Please contact us- we'd be happy to review your requirements with you and determine whether your work qualifies for the 2020 contract vehicle.
