RECOMMENDATION

Title
AWARD a sole source 60-month indefinite quantity/indefinite delivery Contract No. MA6274900 for the overhaul of 52 friction brake systems for Breda A650 Red Line cars to Wabtec Passenger Transit (Wabtec), the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), for a not-to-exceed amount of $2,857,400, inclusive of one service option.

Issue
ISSUE

The Red Line Fleet is comprised of 104 cars (52 married pairs). The friction brake system on the Breda A650 rail car requires a Time-Based, Major Overhaul every four years. The Red Line A650 fleet is in its 22nd year of operation with over 1.1 million miles per rail car. The recommended preventative maintenance program to ensure a continued level of safety and reliability requires the brake systems be overhauled every four years in accordance with the OEM recommended interval and procedures. This procurement is for the acquisition of the friction brake system overhaul services.
Discussion
DISCUSSION

The friction brake overhaul requires Rail Fleet Services to remove brake components from the A650 vehicle then send them to Wabtec where they are overhauled and tested at their location. Wabtec will warrant the overhauled parts for a minimum of two years. The tentative implementation schedule is one married-pair (two cars) per month.
