JSM & Associates awarded massive O&M contract for Orlando International Airport

Mount Dora, FL, March, 2017

JSM & Associates (JSM) was selected from six prominent BHS Operations & Maintenance (O&M) firms through Greater Orlando Aviation Authority’s (GOAA) new procurement process: Invitation To Negotiate (ITN). 

ITN employs a more modern and fair approach to select the most qualified firm. It’s based predominantly on the qualifications and the competence of the firm. After proposal qualifications are submitted and evaluated, the top firms are selected for an interview and a presentation is given and evaluated by GOAA. 

After a competitive process, JSM was approved for the up to 9-year O&M contract by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority Board. 

“This O&M contract was the first time an ITN approach was implemented by GOAA to evaluate firms for O&M services procurement and we are pleased with the process and results”, said Denise Schneider, Assistant Director Purchasing and Material Control for GOAA. 

Orlando International Airport (MCO) serves more than 42 million passengers arriving and departing annually, with passenger counts up 10% from last year. JSM will be assuming management of the O&M service duties for the vast amount of equipment used in supporting MCO passenger growth. This includes: 

  • 93 Passenger Boarding Bridges
  • 93 Ground Power Units and Pre-Conditioned Air Units
  • Over 4,500 Baggage Handling System assets

The prestigious contract also includes all labor, supervision, management oversight, training, materials, tools, equipment, reports, consumables, uniforms and all other items and services necessary to performing 24 hours per day / 7 days per week operation.
