The Contracts Field Teams Program
The Contract Field Teams Program is a program of the United States Air Force designed to provide temporary and long-term labor support for a variety of technical service needs; maintenance and repair, depot services, inspections, modernization for contingency support for aircraft, vehicles, weapon systems and other equipment. The official USAF definition of CFT is: “A group of skilled contractor maintenance personnel who are provided with government furnished special tools, equipment, and supplies to accomplish maintenance on site at operational bases. The contractor provides supervision, people, and hand tools.” To win a CFT task order the contractor must be able to demonstrate that it can assemble the necessary personnel and deploy them to the directed site within a short time frame (generally 30 days from notification). Although the program is administered by the USAF, all branches of the military are eligible to use the CFT program for their needs, as well as some civilian agencies.
STi's CFT Team
STi is leading a select and respected group of US Military support contractors who are thoroughly familiar with the Oklahoma City – Air Logistics Center (OC-ALC) Contractor Field Team (CFT) requirements and the maintenance environment under which the Team will operate. The STi Team has been providing field maintenance team support for more than 20-years, and we are doing so today on a worldwide basis. The STi Team will provide timely and qualified maintenance support personnel to CFT customers for all of the Armed Services and supported Government agencies anywhere in the continental United States. The Team’s maintenance and supply technicians (more than 5,000 in house personnel) are providing quality maintenance on any weapon system or support equipment currently deployed by the US military. STi will ensure quality performance by quickly deploying the required personnel with the appropriate skill-sets and training to the requesting units – and do so in a lean and cost effective manner. We understand that this equipment will ultimately be used by the people whose lives depend on the system’s reliability – the Warfighter.
About CFT

The CFT program was established in 1951 by the Air Force to augment its maintenance capability. It supplements the government’s capability to perform organizational and field level maintenance and modification requirements. It provides a rapid deployment/surge capability worldwide for the repair or modification of military weapon systems. CFT is a group of contractor maintenance personnel who are provided with government furnished tools or equipment, workspace, and supplies to accomplish modification/maintenance/repair effort on-site at operational locations worldwide.

CFT work is limited to supportable programs for operational support of active aircraft, missiles, ground support equipment and vehicles. Supportability is measured by available technical data, tooling, required spares, and parts. Elements such as technical complexity, hardware availability, and qualify assurance support are factors which also enter into the decision to use CFT. Training will be limited to on on-the-job training for tasked resources.

The host base/government facility controls the tactical operation and maintenance of assigned aircraft and equipment. Input of aircraft and equipment for work will be thoroughly coordinated with the host. Base support includes but is not limited to controlled workspace, material, GFM, equipment, vehicles, services or other support functions that can be made available at or through any installation. This also includes respirator fittings and other occupational support and training on DoD equipment as required.

Examples of DoD Systems and components that may require CFT support are: aircraft, aircraft modifications, airborne accessories, aircraft engines, howitzers, missiles, test stands, cranes, hush houses, shipboard maintenance, weapons launchers, tracked and wheeled vehicles, generators/radars, countermine equipment, depot supply functions, ground support equipment, automated storage kitting and retrieval systems, floating bridges, and container repair.
