RMIPA Issues RFP for SMS Program Development and Implementation



Professional Consulting Services
for the
SMS Program Development and Implementation for Amata Kabua International Airport


The Republic of the Marshall Islands Ports Authority (RMIPA), a public corporation of the Government of the Republic of the Marshall Islands (GRMI), hereby solicits proposals from a qualified consulting firm to provide professional services for the development and implementation of an airport Safety Management System (SMS) Program for the Amata Kabua International Airport (AKIA), to also include the provisioning of a Safety Management System (SMS) Software. The SMS Software to be provided shall be capable of integrating with/to the RMIPA’s existing GIS-centric Airport Condition Monitoring System. RMIPA’s Airport Condition Monitoring System utilizes ArcGIS Online and Collector for ArcGIS to provide an easy to use mobile environment for RMIPA inspectors to report the condition of airport infrastructure or assets in a connected or disconnected environment.

This work will be performed and partially funded under the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grants issued respectively to the GRMI.

The selected consultant will be tasked with developing the SMS Program for AKIA which will require scalable implementation strategies, to include tracking and reporting hazards and deficiencies; airport personnel roles and responsibilities; staff training and skills development; software systems integration; integrated forms; processes; and procedures. The required SMS Program shall be consistent with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 14, Aerodrome Standards, Annex 19, Safety Management (First Edition, July 2013) and ICAO Doc. 9859, Safety Management Manual.
