What is eFAST?

The Electronic Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Accelerated and Simplified Tasks (eFAST), is a multi-year MOA (Multiple Ordering Agreement) program that offers a vast array of labor categories with fixed ceiling rates. eFAST is the FAA’s preferred contracting vehicle for small business contracts.

The FAA enters MOA’s with Small Businesses, 8(a), Women-Owned, Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Businesses (SEDB) to provide comprehensive management, engineering and technical support services. This Next Generation professional and support services procurement allows long term acquisition for an expanded array of professional and support services to better serve the requirements of the FAA, and on a limited basis and in the best interest of the Government, all other federal government agencies, nationwide, in an expedited efficient and effective manner.

eFAST streamlines the procurement process for all stakeholders using a web-based acquisition tool and automated workflows compliant with applicable FAA standards. eFAST supports the following contract types: Firm-Fixed Price, Cost Reimbursable, Time and Materials, Labor Hour and others as appropriate.
