Market Survey

FIRST: This is an amendment to the Market Survey. The amendment is issued to extend the closing date for submittal of responses from: January 12, 2009 to: January 26, 2009.

SECOND: Reference FAA Objectives for Lodging Services included in the original posting. The following clarification is provided: 1. The FAA objective for lodging services has been described as lodging for 300 rooms per day for 365 days (annually). The FAA anticipates that individual accommodations rooms will be provided each student. Apartments with common living rooms and kitchens would not satisfy these objectives but may be described as a market trend or cost effective solution for same or similar type requirements

2. The FAA objective for lodging services describe dining on the same property (or adjacent to) the proposed lodging facility to facilitate convenience for the students. Access to adjacent commercial dining facilities or partnerships with commercial dining facilities may be described as the market trend or cost effective solution for same or similar type requirements.

3. Air Traffic Training schedules vary per student. Student enrollment occurs daily and intermittently throughout the year, and students may arrive and depart daily based upon the FAA training requirement. The FAA may deliver training for as many as four shifts to accommodate the number of students enrolled for training. Currently, the shifts are defined as follows:

06:00 AM - 14:30 PM07:00 AM - 15:30 PM10:00 AM - 18:30 PM15:30 PM - Midnight (12:00 AM)

4. The FAA lodging Per Diem rate is $49.80 per day for new hire Air Traffic Control Students.



************************************************************The FAA Academy located at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center (MMAC) in Oklahoma City, OK will train many of the new air traffic controllers in addition to the 4,000+ technical and managerial training courses currently being taught by various media types each year at the center. The FAA Academy currently provides four training shifts to accommodate the influx of students attending, and scheduled to attend training at the MMAC. This 75% increase is attributed to an increase in new hire air traffic control students. The length of training for these students has introduced challenges to the Academy that consists of locating long term lodging within an established budget (comparable to student costs based upon FAA Travel Policy extended-stay fixed rate per diem). To fulfill future long term lodging needs for Academy students, the FAA Academy is considering contract services to facilitate extended stay-lodging with related amenities. The services are anticipated for the period beginning third quarter 2009.

The Contract services shall provide lodging (and related accommodations) to facilitate a minimum of 300 rooms annually (365 days a year). Lodging and accomodations will be provided for new hire air traffic control students only. Contract facilities located within a 10 mile radius of the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, 6500 S. MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73169, and lodging standards equivalent to AAA - Three Diamond (http://www.aaa.com) are preferred.
