Minor Sustainment Projects of the Philippine Air Force under the AFPMP Capability Upgrade Program

Due to the numerous minor projects involved in the AFP Modernization Program's Capability Upgrade Program of the Philippine Air Force and all other branch services, Philippine Defense Resource decided to combine them to resources pages based on their classification according to Department of National Defense (DND) official documents.

In this case, we focus on Minor Mobility Projects under the AFPMP Capability Upgrade Program of the Philippine Air Force, which are projects classified under Sustainment Projects that are less than Php100 million (approx US$2 million) in value.

The project names would still be individually listed in the MaxDefense Philippines' AFP & PCG Modernization Resource Portals and on Philippine Defense Resource's List of Modernization Projects, but will be linked into each of the grouped resource pages of each branch service. Philippine Defense Resource will follow numbering based on its listing from DND documents.

12. Enhancement of Radio Electrical Instruments (REI) / Precision Measuring Equipment Laboratory (PMEL) Acquisition

Overview:

The project involves the acquisition of a new Radio Electrical Instruments (REI) and Precision Measuring Equipment Laboratory (PMEL) which would support in the sustainment of air assets by the 410th Maintenance Wing of the Philippine Air Force.

According to then PAF spokesman Col. Miguel Ernesto Okol, the new equipment aims to address the current capability gap in attending to aircraft REI components repair, overhaul and calibration, while the PMEL will serve as a facility in which modification, measurement and repair of precision tools and equipment takes place.

With this capability, the PAF can ensure reliability, accuracy, and traceability on its systems, subsystems, and equipment for all its aircraft.

Not much is known about the procurement process of the project, who the bidders were and who won the project contract, as well as the project's Approved Budget of Contract (ABC).

The exact products delivered under this project is also unknown, although it is believed to be multiple products from different manufacturers.

As of the moment, we only know that this project exists, and that it was worth Php35,790,600.00, and was completed on March 2014.

17. Medium Lift Aircraft Integrated Logistics Support Project

Overview:

The project involves the procurement of Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) package to support the Philippine Air Force's fleet of Airbus CASA C-295M medium tactical transport aircraft, of which 3 aircraft were delivered to the PAF from 2014 to 2015.

These ILS package consists of spare parts and service support that are needed for the aircraft's sustainment. It appears that the PAF only allowed for a very limited spares package when it acquired the C-295M aircraft, due to the lack of funding to allow for a reasonable ILS package to be included from the get-go.

The Allowed Budget for Contract (ABC) for the project is said to be worth Php79,000,000.00, and was procured through Direct Negotiations with the aircraft's manufacturer, Airbus Defence and Space. This was allowed by the government's procurement laws without needing public tender.

Airbus was awarded a contract worth Php78,701,924.00 for the project and it was reported by the DND that the project has been completed as of December 2015.
