What is a Reimbursable Agreement? • A Reimbursable Agreement is a legal document executed by an FAA Contracting Officer and a Sponsor under which the FAA provides, and is reimbursed for materials, supplies, equipment, FAA Engineering services, FAA Resident Engineer (RE) services (deployed during the Sponsor’s construction to commissioning phases), Development of FAA Flight Procedures, and/or Flight Inspection. • A Reimbursable Agreement provides resources to protect the operation of the NAS, by ensuring FAA involvement during all phase of the Sponsor’s project. Including site visits, review of Sponsor’s provided plans, and FAA RE involvement during construction, acceptance inspection, and project closeout.
What services can the FAA provide for Reimbursable Agreements? • Engineering • Site Selection • Equipment Specifications • Construction Oversight • Installation & Testing • Flight Inspection

Allows Engineering to provide a Resident Engineer to monitor the construction and ensure that the FAA interests are protected during the construction phase. 2.

When is a Reimbursable Agreement (RA) required? 1. During the Initial discovery phase of the Sponsor’s Project. A Small Scale Reimbursable Agreement (SSRA) will help determine if and/or when FAA involvement is required. 2. When relocation, replacement, or modification of an FAA facility or due to the Airport’s or Sponsor’s improvement and / or project is planned. 3. When it is anticipated or probable that the technical and operational characteristics of an FAA facility will be impaired. 4. When the development of a new flight procedure is anticipated and/or required. 5. When Flight Inspection is mandatory to recertify an FAA facility. (Note: This may be required even if the FAA facility is not relocated)
Current RA Process
What are the Challenges with Reimbursable Agreements 1. DEFINING SCOPE: A well defined scope of work and schedule is essential in order to determine availability of resources and creating the cost estimate. 2. COST ESTIMATE: Knowing the duration of the project and the schedule is vital to generating an estimate due to travel and per diem costs. 3. PREPAYMENT OF THE AGREEMENT: FAA Finance Office policy requires the sponsor to fund the entire cost of the project in advance. • RESOURCES: Engineering resources and FAA Equipment are limited so early awareness will allow us to get the project on the priority lists. 1. FLIGHT PROCEDURE CHANGES: Flight Procedure Changes may take 2 years after the data is submitted to be Charted.
What are the Challenges with Reimbursable Agreements Close-Outs PROJECT CLOSE-OUTS: 1. Ensure that when the project is complete: As-Built drawings and other closeout documents are submitted timely to the FAA. 2. The return of funds may be expedited by completing and returning to the address on the form. The Accounts Payable section of Accounting require this completed form to refund money requested by the Accounts Receivable. 3. Prompt notification of changes with banking information submitted with the original grant information. Banks merge and buy each other out; Be mindful of changes to prevent delays of grant payments and drawdowns.
