USAF Consolidates Contracting Systems Into Single Platform

A directorate within the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center is combining four legacy contract writing systems into a consolidated contract management platform.

The new unified platform, named Contracting Information Technology, will service over 4,500 contracting users by December 2019, and is being implemented across the U.S. Air Force, the branch said Thursday.

Under the Agile Pilot Program, USAF intends for CON-IT to accelerate the development, management and deployment of contracts.

Contracting officers at Tyndall Air Force Base recently adopted CON-IT to procure resources for daily base operations following the events of Hurricane Michael.

“After Hurricane Michael tore through Tyndall AFB, the contracting community was simply unable to accomplish the mission because their legacy contract writing system was not available,” said Mike Allen, CON-IT program manager.

“Our integrated program office pulled in Tyndall’s contracting user accounts, activated them in CON-IT, and quickly provided training to get users familiarized with the system," he added.
