  3. Limit of Briefing • This Industry briefing is conducted for the purpose of providing background information only and will not be used to provide potential tenderers with information additional to that contained in the request documentation • Potential tenderers cannot rely on a statement made at this industry briefing as amending or adding to the request documentation unless the amendment or addition is confirmed by Defence in writing Defence Procurement Policy Manual, Chap 5.4, para 48

  4. Agenda • Introduction • Request for Tender/Conditions of Tender • Conditions of Contract • FPS/OSC • Conclusion

  5. Aim • To discuss Request for Tender 06/050 (EWS) • To outline to potential Prime System Integrators (PSI) and sub-contractors key elements of the combined solicitation strategy for the Battle Group and Below Command, Control and Communications (BGC3) capability

  6. Follow-on Activities • For those who are bidding as a Prime System Integrator (and their consortium team members) the following activities will also be conducted: • One-on-one discussions to discuss any areas of clarification conducted IAW COT • Vehicle viewing of the M113 family AS4 variants • Photographs of vehicles will be taken by Commonwealth officers and provided to the potential PSI on request.

  7. BGC3 System • BGC3 Mission System • Battle Management System (BMS) (L75/L125) • BMS-Dismounted • BMS-Mounted • BMS-Command Post • Combat Radio System (CRS) (L125/JP2072) • BMS data • Local & Higher Command voice • Network Management System (NMS) (L125/JP2072) • BGC3 Support System for all the above

  8. Indicative Capability Schedule • Initial Operational Capability – Mid 2009 • A Sub-Unit / Combat Team equipped & trained • Support System operational • Operational Battle Group – End 2009 • Or sooner

  9. Request for Tender • RFT 06/050 released 10 May 2007 • Based on ASDEFCON Strategic Materiel • RFT closes 6 Aug 2007 • Release of Information to Tenderers • UNCLASSIFIED • RESTRICTED • ICT Clearance required for E-copy • Technical Data is Commercial-in-Confidence (not RESTRICTED as previously advised) • OSC, SCGD and Military Pamphlets RESTRICTED

  10. Matters Concerning Response • The Commonwealth seeks responses using the embedded Microsoft XL Spreadsheets within clause 4 of Annex A to Attachment A of the Conditions of Tender • Certain response volumes seek only limited responses at RFT close, with a full response required only by those invited to participate in the Parallel Offer Definition Activity (PODA) • eg. Response to Annex I to Attachment A - Integrated Logistic Support • The Commonwealth will not consider partial responses

  11. Technical Data • Commonwealth has provided Technical Data to enable Tenderers to respond • Requests for additional Technical Data should be directed to the Commonwealth (cf. cl. 5.5.2 in the COT)

  12. Conditions of Tender • Note that Annex J to Attachment A is the PODA Deed • Enclosure 1 to the PODA Deed is the PODA Statement of Work • Note that Attachment B is the BGC3 System Demonstration Instruction • Note the Tender Data Item Deliverables (TDIDs) • Combat Radio System Description (CRSD) • Network Management System Description (NMSD) • System Integration Description (SID) – Vehicle Integration • System Software Description (SSD) • Support System Constituent Capability Description (SSCCD) • Proposed Support System Solution (PSSS)

  13. Tender Evaluation Demonstrations • Four weeks prior to tender closure the Commonwealth will seek confirmation that potential tenderers areinterested inparticipating in the system demonstrations • IAW the BGC3 System Demonstration Instruction (Attachment B to COT) • The Commonwealth will advise of the timings • Tenderers are to provide software, hardware and communications solutions • Type 1 vs Type 2 radios

  14. Tender Evaluation Demonstrations • All demonstrations will be conducted in Canberra, ACT • Demonstrations will be in two parts: • 1. VTT-VMF Compliance test • 2. Bench Top and Range Testing System Demonstration • Initial Screening activity • Failure to pass VTT-VMF Compliance test may lead to Tender being set aside from further evaluation

  15. VTT-VMF Compliance • Desktop compliance demonstration utilising a VMF Test Tool • Conducted during the period 14-21 Aug 2007 (immediately following tender closure) • Individual demonstration will take one day

  16. System Demonstration • Successful completion of VMF Compliance test is a prerequisite • Bench top and Field (Majura) testing demonstration conducted during the period 6 Sep – 4 Oct 2007 • Individual demonstration will take 5 days • Hardware and personnel requirements are detailed in Attachment B of COT

  17. Parallel Offer Definition Activity • At the completion of Tender Evaluation, the Commonwealth intends to enter into a Deed (Annex J to Attachment A to the COT) with one, two or more tenderers to conduct a PODA • The aim of conducting a PODA is to allow selected tenderers to further demonstrate their technical solution to the BMS requirement and refine their offer to the Commonwealth • The Commonwealth will make a “contribution” to costs

  18. Parallel Offer Definition Activity • The schedule is the key driver for the PODA • The final activities, including integration and installation of prototypes into vehicles, will depend on Tenderers responses. • The PODA is expected to be of approximately six months duration • PODA is expected to commence NLT 1st quarter of 2008

  19. Draft Conditions of Contract • ASDEFCON Strategic Materiel Format with tailoring

  20. Parallel Offer Definition Activity • Specific activities and milestones during the PODA include: • Achieving Prototype Design Acceptance (PDA) on vehicle interface solutions • Limited GUI modifications to meet ADF requirements • Achieving Design Acceptance on dismounted soldier interface solutions • Successful completion of System Requirements Review (SRR) • Submission of a refined offer based on work conducted during the PODA

  21. Function and Performance Specification

  37. Network Latency • Prime Function – Common Operating Picture (including Blue Force Tracks) • Latency requirements • are specified to meet operational need • are not specified to support any particular network topology/design • recognise that at any instant the COP will have information of varying ‘age’ at different organisational levels within the AO.

  38. Network Management • Open Systems • Scalable • Ability for a NMS Manager to plan, deploy, operate and reconfigure the System from any mounted Node or CP • Automate generation of Army SOIs and CEOIs • Ability to test system plans based on expected Operator requirements, terrain analysis and concept of operations • Shall plan, configure, monitor, and manage interfaces to external systems. • The NMS shall assign and de-conflict frequency assignments for current and future system architectures while monitoring current operation

  39. Conclusion • Tender process designed to select a mature BGC3 system • Tender packs for cleared Companies are available in the Foyer after the question time • A L75 WWW Website will be created over the next three weeks • This presentation will be posted on that website • New Land 75 PM BMS – Major Roger Grose (WEF 14 Jun) • Questions may be answered or taken on notice • E-Correspondence bgc3.tender@defence.gov.au
