As a result of completing the OPT, the PI may prioritize the outsource surveillance program to reflect the risk level at the air carrier maintenance vendors.
During the next 12 months, the certificate management members will complete the surveillance program.
The OPT is intended to be developed in two phases: Phase 1will be available for fielding at the beginning of FY06; and Phase 2 will be available for fielding at the beginning of FY07. The Phase 1 tool will be a simplified paper version of the tool, which will allow for outsource maintenance prioritization at the local level. The Phase 2 tool will be more comprehensive and will be automated during FY06 and will be ready for fielding in FY07.
