Abstract : This guide acquaints prospective contractors/vendors with Air Force base-level contracting. Its purpose is to familiarize first-time contractors with Air Force business practices by examining the acquisition policies, unique clauses, and forms which apply at the installation-level. Its target audience is the small business contemplating selling its products or services to the Air Force for the first time; however, it will benefit anyone interested in learning the peculiarities of government contracting. Only firm fixed-price contracts are addressed because this type contract is prevalent at base-level. The guide contains five appendices which provide greater detail on specific aspects of contracting: small purchase procedures, construction contracts, service contracts, supply contracts, and contracting forms.
