Aviation Security Research and Development Division (AAR-500) Contract Management Handbook

The Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA's) Acquisition Management System (AMS) was established to dramatically improve the agency's acquisition process by creating a framework for informed and innovative decision-making. The AMS provides extensive guidance regarding the FAA's procurement system. The stated goal of the procurement system is 'to obtain high quality products, services, and real property in a timely, cost effective manner, at prices that are fair and reasonable.' The Aviation Security Research and Development Division (AAR-500) recognized the need to supplement the policy and guidance provided by the AMS by identifying internal processes. This Handbook meets that need by clearly defining AAR-500 personnel roles, responsibilities, and process activities that uphold the procurement policy of the agency.
