SAIC is looking for a “Maintenance Inspector (MI)”with specialized experience in facility operations and maintenance disciplines including structural, electrical, civil, mechanical, architectural, roofing, fire detection and fire suppression. The MI will review and inspect base facility maintenance operations to identify conformance and nonconformance to work orders, preventative maintenance schedules and documents, and quality standards.
The duties of the MI shall include:
1. Collecting and documenting inspection findings to assist the Contracting Officer’s Representative in ensuring that the base operations and maintenance activities, conducted by third party entities, meet contract requirements in the areas of preventative maintenance (PM), breakdown maintenance, and service order work.
2. Reviewing mechanical and electrical systems’ Preventive Maintenance Instructions (PMI) for safety, maintenance and technical accuracy.
3. Performing desk audits and field audits of PMI tasks performed by the base facility contractor or others. Verifying and providing a rating of the work being performed as outlined on the PMI based on criteria to be provided by the NASA designated surveillance lead, and make recommendations and observations to be used to enhance NASA’s maintenance program.
a. Report on a weekly basis all findings related to PM performance.
b. Report on a weekly basis all findings related to PM discrepancies and provide a report and a rating of the work of identification of discrepancies, of the initial workflow categorization. Rating criteria to be provided by the NASA designated surveillance lead.
4. Performing field audits of Trouble Calls (TC) and Breakdown Repair and Replacements (BRR) on all facility systems and property.
a. Report on a weekly basis all findings related to TC and BRR performance, ROM estimates, category, actual work observed in the field, issues related to nonperformance, and substandard performance, based on criteria to be provided by the NASA designated surveillance lead.
b. Report on a weekly basis all findings related to work orders of any type that, can and should be combined with other work orders to the benefit of the government to obtain efficiencies available for fixed price work efforts. Identification of work orders that should be combined based on criteria to be provided by the NASA designated surveillance lead, with frequent feedback from the MI
5. Performing field audits of Service Orders (SO) performed by the base facility contractor or others to verify work is being performed as outlined on the SO.
a. Report on a weekly basis all findings related to SO execution, ROM estimates, category, actual work observed in the field, and the reported actual hours and materials, to the NASA designated surveillance lead. Also, identify work orders that should be combined based on criteria to be provided by the NASA designated surveillance lead.
6. Providing Report summaries on a monthly basis, identifying trends, positive and negative, related to PMI execution, PMI exceptions, TC execution and BRR execution, and SO execution, with supporting backup documentation
7. Maintenance inspection techniques will include frequent desk reviews of upcoming scheduled work and work reported as performed in the Maximo computerized maintenance management system used by the base contractor. Desk reviews will be accompanied by field audits, reports.
8. The MI is expected to make further recommendations based on findings to the NASA surveillance lead so that changes to the search algorithms can be refined.
9. The MI is also expected to participate in various meetings to be held between NASA and the base operations and maintenance contractor and others, including risk and issues meetings, Integrated Review Boards, and others as required.
