Posted on the sam.gov US government procurement website, the Office of Program Management – Saudi Arabian National Guard (OPM-SANG) Aviation Training and Support Services (ATSS) RFI seeks to issue a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract for all SANG rotary-wing training and support functions in July 2022, with operations commencing from October 2022.

“This effort is an integral part of the modernisation process, which covers all elements, missions, and functions of the Saudi Arabian Ministry of National Guard (MNG), as well as those requirements needed to support the activities of the OPM-SANG. The ultimate programme goal is the development within MNG of the capability to unilaterally initiate and sustain modern military organisations and systems,” the RFI said.

The Saudi government anticipates awarding a single contract. It is believed that the resulting contract will have a period of performance of one base year, with four one-year option periods.
