STATEMENT OF WORK:
a) BACKGROUND. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) owns/operates two WP-3 Lockheed Orion (WP-3) aircraft in various locations throughout the United States, Mexico, and Canada. It has been determined that one of these WP-3 aircraft will be based out of the Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada area to be operated in support of critical winter storm/ocean wind related research. Due to winter weather conditions in the Halifax area, it is necessary that the WP-3 aircraft be kept in a hangar during the period on or about January 11, 2016 thru on or about February 16, 2016. The hangar will protect the aircraft and it's instrumentation from the environment as well as protects the flight crew and maintenance personnel while performing routine maintenance and pre and post-flight activities through the winter months.
NOAA WP-3 aircraft will be operating out of Halifax, Canada in support of winter storms/ocean winds research. There will be several NOAA WP-3 mechanics in Halifax supporting the aircraft at all times except for short periods when the mechanic's services are requested to support aircraft in other locations. Only one WP-3 will be required in the hangar.
The contractor shall provide heated hangar space for one (1) WP-3 having a wing span of 100 feet, length 116 feet and 39 feet high at the tail. Note that the aircraft is equipped with a 105 inch (8.75 ft) air chemistry nose boom sensor that extends from the forward fuselage and must be taken into
account for both hangar length and towing operations. Heated hangar means that the hangar is maintained at a temperature above 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Flight crews shall have access to the aircraft 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The contractor can determine if access will be available using on-site personnel that are available at any time, or if not available, issue keys to the flight crews for the hangar where the aircraft is stored.
Security Clause 1352.239-72 does not apply to the SOW and a Security Accreditation Package is not required.
The following services are requested as part of the hangar rental price. If there are extra charges or fees for any of these services in addition to the fixed base hangar rental price, provide separate pricing information for each item:
1 Ground support equipment use including:
a) AC and DC external power unit,
b) Ground service equipment on an as needed basis,

2) Hangar amenities including: tools, equipment, consumables, phones, hi-speed internet access (non-dial up with at least a 1Mbps download/upload speed), heat and DC power,
3) 24-hour access for maintenance and flight crew,
4) Storage space in hangar for extra gear and equipment 5ftx5ft
5) Acceptance of Multiservice Air Card for payment of incidentals.
b) PERFORMANCE PERIOD. The hangar lease is required from on or about January 11, 2016 thru on or about February 16, 2016. However, the Government reserves the right to depart early from the survey site and from use of the hangar without incurring any additional fees or penalties associated with departing earlier than February 16, 2016. At the conclusion of the lease, Government owned parts, equipment, and property shall be returned to the Government.
c) INSURANCE. The contractor shall at its own expense, provide and maintain hull liability insurance of not less than $2,000,000.00 to cover the aircraft in the event of fire or any catastrophic damage to the hangar resulting in loss or damage to the aircraft. Contractor shall provide the Contracting Officer written documentation that the required insurance has been obtained along with a copy of the insurance certificate.
