MADISON, Miss. (October 14, 2020) – The U.S. Air Force Installation Contracting Center (AFICC) at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas, has awarded Vertex Aerospace one of eight prime seats on the Aircraft Maintenance Enterprise Solution (ACES) contract vehicle. Task orders of the Indefinite Delivery/ Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Contract (MAC) will support USAF contracted organizational-level maintenance on fixed and swing-wing aircraft.
