Under the "Memorandum of Understanding between the National Radio Astronomy Observatory/Associated Universities Incorporated, Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics (HIA) and the University of Calgary related to Canadian ALMA Construction Phase Work Packages", HIA is committed to deliver a suite of seventy-three Band 3 100 GHz receiver cartridges to the ALMA Project. After the acceptance of each cartridge at the Front End Integration Centers, HIA is responsible to perform any post-delivery maintenance, repair and rework of the cartridges for a warranty period of up to one year. This paper defines a framework for the maintenance and repair services for the Band 3 cartridges after the post-delivery warranty period has expired. This framework consists of a detailed work breakdown structure, timelines and labour effort estimates of the major tasks related maintenance and repair services of ALMA Band 3 cartridges.
