The NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCI Agency) intends to issue an Invitation For Bids (IFB) to replace Electronic Counter Measure (ECM) Systems in support of Resolute Support. This project will include the procurement, installation, and testing of ECM equipment; as well as the on-site support of two Field Support Representatives (FSRs) permanently located in theatre. They will perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, troubleshoot in case of failure and provide operator training. Potential U.S. prime contractors must 1) maintain a professionally active facility (office, factory, laboratory, etc.) within the United States, 2) hold an active Facility Security Clearance at the level of SECRET or higher 3) be pre-approved for participation in NATO International Competitive Bidding (ICB), and 3) be nominated to the bidders list by the U.S. Government.��� In addition, execution of the proposed contract may require personnel of the successful bidder to hold individual security clearances at the level of SECRET or higher. The reference for the IFB is IFB-CO-15041-ECM, and all correspondence concerning the IFB should reference this number. The NCI Agency plans to award a single firm-fixed price contract for the procurement of approximately 95 ECM systems (80 mounted and 15 static) plus spares to guarantee sufficient availability. The initial contract period of performance is expected to be one year, plus another five years of optional support for warranty, spare parts and repair.� No partial bidding will be accepted. The price evaluation will include the initial contract plus all options. SUMMARY OF REQUIREMENTS Please see attached. BECOMING ELIGIBLE TO BID NATO ICB requires that the U.S. Government nominate U.S. prime contractors to the bidders list. Before the U.S. Government can nominate a U.S. prime contractor to the bidders list, however, the U.S. firm must be approved for participation in NATO ICB. Firms are approved for U.S. NATO ICB on a facility-by-facility basis. The U.S. NATO ICB application is a one-time application. The application requires supporting documentation in the form of 1) a company resume indicating contracts completed as a prime contractor and 2) an annual report or set of financial documents indicating compilation, review, or audit by an independent CPA. U.S. firms can download a copy of the U.S. NATO ICB application from the following website: http://www.bis.doc.gov/index.php/other-areas/strategic-industries-and-economic-security-sies/nato-related-business-opportunities The application and supporting documentation may be submitted as e-mail attachments. If, when submitting the application, your firm is interested in a specific NATO ICB project, please include the following in the text of your email: - the title and/or solicitation number of the project - the name/phone/email of the company employee who should receive the bid documents After approval of your one-time NATO ICB application, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) will then know to follow up by issuing a Declaration of Eligibility (DOE) for that project. NATO member governments use a DOE to nominate an approved firm to the bidders list for a particular NATO ICB project. IMPORTANT DATES: - Request from DOC that a DOE be issued (and, for firms new to NATO ICB, submit the completed one-time NATO ICB application): 23 January 2020 - NCI Agency issues IFB (target): February 2020 - Bid Closing (target): April 2020 - Contract Award (target): November 2020
