5. OVERVIEW We are here today to exchange information in order to promote a full understanding of the requirements and acquisition strategy, and to solicit your feedback on the final draft RFP which was posted to the WWW on 5 Feb 1999. If you see problems with what we have posted on 5 Feb 1999, please advise us at the end of this morning’s session or during your afternoon session, assuming your firm has scheduled a one-on-one meeting with the Government. We are still in the pre-solicitation stage, so industry comments and concerns can still be addressed before the final RFP hits the street. We are actively seeking industry feedback to increase the chances of having a successful RFP for all concerned. Even after today, you are encouraged to provide written or electronic feedback to me about the RFP.We are here today to exchange information in order to promote a full understanding of the requirements and acquisition strategy, and to solicit your feedback on the final draft RFP which was posted to the WWW on 5 Feb 1999.

9. PROPOSED ACQUISITION STRATEGY FASA (Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act) dictates the use of certain preferred contracting methods. We are attempting to maximize the use of these methods for the LT Program. Additionally, emphasis is being placed on tailoring DOD procurements to be more like those negotiated by private industry. New guidance has been issued on the use of performance based Statements of Work. We are attempting to comply with all these new regulations and still satisfy our customer needs. The proposed solicitation will be for an Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC) with orders issued on a firm fixed price basis. An award fee may be paid in addition to FFP dollars. The amount of the award fee is determined by the Government’s judgmental evaluation of the successful offeror’s performance in terms of criteria stated in the Award Fee Plan. The Government makes this determination unilaterally. There are also T & M and CPAF Clins in the Draft RFP. There is no CPAF Plan in the draft solicitation. The CPAF Plan will be issued when CPAF delivery orders are issued. FASA (Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act) dictates the use of certain preferred contracting methods.

10. RFP STRUCTURE When you reviewed Draft Section B on the WWW, you saw that there were Firm-Fixed Price line items, Fixed Price Award Fee items, T & M line items and Cost Plus Award Fee line items. The fill-in-the-blank items are Firm-Fixed Price line items which must be completely filled in by you when you submit your Price Proposals to the Government. Also, completely fill in the sheets for all T & M efforts. (T & M rates are to be completed under Section B.8 of the RFP). If you need additional sheets for your T & M rates, please include them. Further, the CLIN numbering structure in draft Section B is not necessarily sequential. For example, the numbering reads Item 1201, 1202, 1210, 1211. Any omissions are intentional. The numbering in the Award document will not be sequential either. There will be numerical gaps in Section B CLIN structure of the formal RFP.

One-on-One exchanges will begin at 1300 here at the Radisson.
