Small Business Set-Aside
This is a Request for Information (RFI) prior to a projected Solicitation/Request for Proposal. The Army Contracting Command - Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG), on behalf of the Director, Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E), Office of the Secretary of Defense, requires a contractor to provide engineering and technical support services to DOT&E in the areas of policy, regulations, agreements, technology, security, business processes, treaties, and resources to include Test and Evaluation (T&E) infrastructure, targets, models, and simulators. The support to be provided by this contract covers only DOT&E's non-Title 10 responsibilities. Requirements levied on DOT&E and subordinate organizations will impose relatively demanding conditions of technical rigor, analytical impartiality and soundness, and innovation. The successful contractor will be required to commence work involving access to classified information immediately upon contract award. Therefore, a DoD SECRET facility clearance is required. The contractor will be required to receive, generate, and store up to SECRET information at its facility. Select personnel of the successful offeror who will be performing on this contract must have TOP SECRET personnel security clearance based on a current Single Scope Background Investigation (SSBI) and be eligible for access to SCI. The Government will provide a DD Form 254 Contract Security Classification Specification upon issuance of the solicitation. Foreign participation on this contract is not authorized. The purpose of this RFI is to determine interest on the part of offerors in this upcoming Solicitation. A definitive requirement of this contract is freedom from organizational conflict of interest (OCI) and the appearance thereof. Offerors will be excluded from consideration who have any appearance of involvement in development of DoD systems that are under, or will be under, DOT&E test evaluation oversight as part of its Title 10 responsibilities. If such a situation occurs, the contractor shall immediately notify the COR of this contract. Prospective offerors for this contract should be aware that winning this contract can create a situation in which participation in an existing or future DoD systems development contract can cause an OCI that may bring about termination of the DOT&E contract. The successful offeror will be required to have an office located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area within a 30-mile radius of the DOT&E office in the Pentagon. The contract will be a single award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract with Cost Plus Fixed Fee task orders issued thereunder, with a 60 month ordering period.
