Title: Request for Information (RFI) for food support for DLA Troop Support's (CONUS SPV) Kentucky, Tennessee and Surrounding areas and federally funded customers
Dear Valued Suppliers:
This is a request for information (RFI). This is not a solicitation for proposals and there is no solicitation available at this time. The Government will not pay for any information received in response to this RFI, nor will the Government compensate any respondent for any cost incurred in developing the information provided to the Government. This RFI does not constitute a commitment from the Government and any information provided in response to this RFI will be used for informational purposes only. Any proprietary information submitted will be protected if appropriately marked. Vendor participation is not a promise for future business with the Government.

Background: DLA Troop Support expects to begin issuing solicitations for Subsistence Prime Vendor (SPV) contracts supporting various regions within the contiguous United States (CONUS). DLA Troop Support's CONUS SPV contractors are responsible for providing full-line food and beverage item distribution support for garrison type feeding to military, federally funded, and other authorized customers in the regions covered by each contract. DLA Troop Support SPV contractors provide food products such as canned items, dry items, chill items, ultra-high temperature (UHT) dairy items, frozen bakery products, frozen meats, frozen seafood and poultry, ice cream, eggs and other dairy products under the contracts. Support includes, but is not limited to: sourcing food items, receiving and consolidating product; warehousing and inventory management; quality control, quality assurance, and inspections; transportation and security of product; personnel management; meeting required delivery dates and fill rates; and extensive reporting requirements. Information on current DLA Troop Support CONUS SPV contracts can be found at: http://www.dla.mil/TroopSupport/Subsistence/Foodservices/Regions/CONUS.aspx. Total yearly sales for Kentucky and Tennessee are estimated at $3.8 million.
DLA Troop Support's CONUS Subsistence Prime Vendor (CONUS SPV) Program is interested in your comments regarding food support for the below customers in Kentucky, Tennessee and Surrounding area.
•1.      Oconaluftee Job Corp Center
•2.      Jacobs Creek Job Corps

•4.      EMC/Blue Ridge Job Corps Center
•5.      164th Services Flight
•6.      118th AW/SVS

•8.      Sodexho Marriott
•9.      USPFO for Tennessee

Discussion: DLA Troop Support may incorporate changes in acquisition strategy in this generation of CONUS SPV solicitations.
•1)      Use of Low Price Technically Acceptable (LPTA) source selection procedures, with all evaluation factors and significant subfactors that will affect contract award, clearly stated in the solicitation.
For this acquisition DLA Troop Support anticipates reverting back to using the following evaluation technique:
•1)      Evaluation of weighted distribution prices when evaluating competing proposal prices.
Following are specific questions to consider:
•1)      Can you support any or all of the customers listed above? Many of the customers expect delivery 48 hours after placing their orders.  Are there any location limitations in meeting this delivery schedule?
•2)      Do you have preferred delivery set-ups (routes, grouping of customers) to provide complete food support throughout the state?
•3)      Some of our customers are remotely located and require smaller pack-size items.  Can this requirement be provided?  Can you provide service to them, regardless of weather conditions?  What method of shipping would be used?
•4)      Would there be customers who could not be supported if an emergency order is needed (either same day or next day)?
We encourage and appreciate your participation; please share your ideas regarding these issues.  Your written comments, suggestions and ideas regarding support for our customers will be treated as confidential and for Government use only. Please provide your responses via mail or email, by November 11, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. local Philadelphia time to the following mailing address or email address: Kenneth Carroll at Kenneth.Carroll@dla.mil and Cedric Marlow at Cedric.Marlow@dla.mil
