The Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Atlantic, Charleston, SC is issuing this pre- solicitation notice to inform industry of an upcoming solicitation (N65236-18-R-0168).

NIWC Atlantic requires contractor engineering support services for the conception, design, development, and delivery of integrated systems, networks, and supporting infrastructure along with corresponding engineering, technical and management support services and equipment for Air Traffic Control (ATC), Meteorology and Oceanography (METOC), and Aviation Command, Control, Communications, Computer, Combat System, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) electronic systems. The requirement also includes support for the modification, upgrade, sustainment, maintenance and emergency/routine repairs of existing ATC, METOC, and Aviation C5ISR systems. This includes full system life-cycle support services for SPAWAR ATC Enterprise/Capability Based In-Service Engineering Activity (CB-ISEA) systems; air traffic management and electronic equipment maintenance services to support ATC operations (ground-to-air communications, aviation command and control, surveillance and precision radar, voice communications, and aviation weather systems sustainment and maintenance); and installation and integration of ATC, METOC, and Aviation C5ISR electronic systems.

To sufficiently provide the required support as described above, two types of contracts are required. First, a multiple award contract (MAC) is required to provide engineering support services on a non-emergent/routine basis, and secondly, a single award contract (SAC) is required to provide a rapid response capability for emergent engineering support services needs resulting from natural disaster, war, or other critical mission support events. Coverage under both of these contract types will ensure continuity of operations for ATC, METOC, and Aviation C5ISR electronic systems. A single solicitation will be issued requesting the submission of offers in response to both contract requirements.

On 23 August 2018, NIWC Atlantic issued a sources sought notice (SSC- Atlantic_MKTSVY_156CFA) via the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) web site. Interested parties were encouraged to reply to the sources sought notice and were notified that the Government reserved the right to consider potential set-asides for small businesses. Based on market research results, this procurement will be conducted using full and open competitive procedures, and the Small Business Administration Procurement Center Representative has concurred with the decision. The applicable North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 541330 with a size standard of $38.5 Million.

The Government anticipates award of Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite quantity (IDIQ), performance based contracts. Task orders issued under the proposed contracts will be Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee (CPFF) and Firm-Fixed-Price (FFP). The proposed multiple award IDIQ contract and single award IDIQ contract will contain a five-year base ordering period and the option for an additional two-year ordering period. The place of performance is worldwide, including performance within the U.S. Central Command Area of Responsibility.

A draft performance work statement (PWS) is available at the SPAWAR e-Commerce website for industry review and comment. Potential offerors are requested to review the draft PWS and submit questions/comments. DRAFT DOCUMENTS ARE ISSUED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. DRAFT DOCUMENTS ARE SUBJECT TO, AND MAY BE REVISED BEFORE, THE ISSUANCE OF THE FORMAL RFP.

Questions regarding this announcement shall be submitted via the SPAWAR e-Commerce Central website https://ecommerce.spawar.navy.mil. Verbal questions will NOT be accepted. Unless otherwise stated herein, no additional written information is available and no formal RFP or other solicitation regarding this announcement is currently available. Requests for the same will be disregarded. If a solicitation is released, it will be found on the SPAWAR E-Commerce Central website.

Please note that this is not a request for proposals. Responses to this pre-solicitation synopsis are not offers and do not commit the Government to contract for any supply or service whatsoever. At this time, the Navy is not currently seeking proposals and will not accept unsolicited proposals. Respondents are advised that the Government will not pay for any information or administrative costs incurred in response to this notice; all costs incurred or associated with responding to this notice will be solely at the respondent's expense.

The purpose of this Pre-Solicitation Conference/Industry Day is to: 1) provide specific information on the anticipated requirements for the ATC Engineering, Technical, and Operational Total System Delivery Support procurement; 2) provide an advanced look at the solicitation's submission requirements and draft evaluation criteria; and 3) provide prospective offerors with an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback to the Government.

There will also be the opportunity to submit written questions at the conclusion of the presentations. All questions submitted before and during the conference will be recorded and posted to the SPAWAR E-Commerce central website. Additionally, all information presented at the conference will be made available through the SPAWAR E-Commerce central website.
