Pact to foster collaboration to bring superior products and services to warfighters
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Oct. 13, 2015) – The U.S. Army Material Command and Rockwell Collins have signed a Strategic Alliance Agreement aimed at implementing strategies and initiatives to optimize efforts needed to supply advanced products and services to warfighters in the most efficient way.
“This agreement represents a commitment by the Army and Rockwell Collins to work together in sharing our products services roadmaps,” said Thierry Tosi, vice president and general manager of Service Solutions for Rockwell Collins. “The shared goal of this agreement is to achieve quicker contracting, by leveraging and expanding existing contract vehicles and increasing the speed of business. This will result in cost savings, increased communications and sharing of technologies, and opening the door to have direct dialogue with the Army.”
For supply and repair activities where Rockwell Collins is the only approved source, the parties agree to work on “smoothing” of commerciality determinations, develop reportable metrics, improved software update distribution and sharing, and optimized lead times.
