This action is the exercise of the FY05 option for the continued performance of the Globemaster III sustainment partnership. These options will be funded by separate funding actions as FY05 funds are received. C-17 fleet sustainment C-17 product support will be managed through long term performance-based partnership between Boeing and the Air Force, which places all performance risk on the contractor to provide sustainment support at continuously raised benchmarked levels. Boeing will be contracted to provide Total System Support Responsibility (TSSR), making Boeing responsible for all contracted sustainment actions to include parts/item management and depot level repair of airframe and sub-components.
