The SMS Software to be provided shall be capable of integrating with/to the RMIPA’s existing GIS-centric Airport Condition Monitoring System.

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.
