Procurement and Contracting Under AIP – Federal Contract Provisions

The procurements a sponsor makes under the AIP must comply with all applicable federal contract provisions as established by various laws and regulations. The requirements for the provisions will vary depending on the type and size of the procurement action. Typically, procurement actions under the AIP fall within three categories:

  1. Construction Development,
  2. Equipment Acquisitions, and
  3. Professional Services (A/E) Contracting.

Application of a certain provision also depends on established contract dollar thresholds and whether the contract is for construction or for another purpose.

Obligated Airport Sponsors

The non-AIP procurements an obligated airport sponsor makes also require that they incorporate certain Civil Rights provision. Sponsor must include the applicable Civil Rights clauses in all contracts, including leases, regardless of the project funding source.

Required Federal Contract Provisions

For the convenience of sponsors and consultants, we have prepared a document that consolidates all required contract provisions and clauses. This resource identifies applicability and use information. For select clauses where the federal directive establishes explicit contract language, sponsors must incorporate such text into their procurement documents verbatim. For those AIP clauses that do not provide explicit language a grantee must use, the resource document provides suggested language acceptable to the FAA to assist with meeting the federal requirements.
