R–USER ACCEPTANCE TESTING (UAT) *LOOKING FOR GSA CONTRACT HOLDERS* VA74113I0083 013113 MAURICE WALKER 303-398-7107 MAURICE.WALKER@VA.GOV Contract Specialist STATEMENT OF WORK
Veterans Health Administration (VHA), Chief Business Office (CBO) has identified a requirement to retain a highly skilled Contractor to provide an objective and independent assessment of software product implementations.
B5.1 PURPOSE
Department_of_Veterans_Affairs_LogoThe Chief Business Office (CBO), Veterans Health Administration (VHA), Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is seeking professional services for User Acceptance Testing (UAT) support to provide an objective and independent assessment of software product implementations (and related processes) throughout the project lifecycle. In addition, to facilitate early detection and correction of errors, enhances management insight into risks and mitigates the risks that a project will not meet its goals in terms of project performance, scope, schedule, and budget.
B5.2 BACKGROUND
B5.2.1 The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Veterans Health Administration (VHA) is one of the world’s largest health care delivery organizations. As part of an integrated strategy to provide veterans with timely, respectful, and efficient service, the Chief Business Office (CBO), Member Services devotes its attention on the enrollment, eligibility, and contact management elements within the VA’s Health Care System.
B5.2.2 The VA provides eligibility and enrollment determination and income verification services for veterans through the Income Verification Division and Enrollment Eligibility Division within the Health Eligibility Center. The CBO, Systems Management office provides consultative services to Member Services’ initiatives that facilitate the access of care to veteran’s benefits and services. Systems Management defines and implements business initiatives and programs, provides business analysis, integration of business practices and information systems, and coordination of business and system processes deployments.
B5.2.3 In general, veterans seek health care at VA expense and obtain such care at VA facilities. The Income Verification Division and Enrollment Eligibility Division provide the VA Medical Centers with accurate verification and eligibility decisions in order to collect copayments from veterans for care. A veteran’s means test status and priority group are determined based on pension guidelines provided by law. Various VA Policies and Directives have been written to provide additional interpretation.
B5.2.4 The VHA Chief Business Office (CBO), Systems Management has developed a comprehensive set of requirements to outline a vision for the future of Member Services. Systems Management is managing multiple programmatic enhancements to Income Verification Matching to provide a stronger integration with the Enrollment System in order to meet both long-term needs as well as interim requirements. These enhancements will not only provide support to the Enrollment and Income Verification process, but components under the Veterans Relationship Management Program, Veterans Transportations Services, Veterans Point of Service (Kiosks), and Legislative changes.
B5.3 OBJECTIVES
The purpose of User Acceptance Testing (UAT) for Member Services is to give the customer an opportunity to test the application. UAT will simulate a production environment and allow the validation of the requirements outlined in the Business Requirements Document (BRD). UAT is a method to improve the quality and effectiveness of the product by determining if the system is acceptable and capable of delivering accurate, timely information and satisfactory service to VHA users. As part of User Acceptance Plan, the UAT team will validate end-to-end business functionality to assess whether the application performs to a customer defined acceptable level of application functionality and stability.
B5.4 SCOPE
There will be a total of 3 Releases and two separate UAT’s will be performed in the base year and 1 UAT in option year 1. The contractor will be responsible developing the test plan, writing user acceptance test scriptsand for assisting the USERS in executing test scenarios, which will exercise the following aspects of the application:
Level 1: The integration of components of the required systems; inclusive of testing for defects, coding errors, and usability.
Level 2: To assure the complete system has been delivered. In this level of testing, the business owner is looking to guarantee components/interfaces have not been left out and/or the system conforms to the specified use case requirements.
Level 3: To assure the system meets the critical business requirements, such as end-to-end business functionality, volume, and stress testing. Users of the system with the support of the contractor will perform tests, which analysts and developers have derived from the requirements gathered from the business as well as test scenarios written by users.
The contractor will lead UAT team in the evaluation of the application by conducting user functionality tests, which consists of creating and executing test cases against the application. The test results will be used to determine whether the following items are included in the system:
” Required attributes/functionality are present
” Test cases in the required system are implemented
” Menus, screens, reports, system interfaces are present as specified and behave as documented and expected
” Interfaces to external systems work effectively
” Specified processing algorithms are implemented correctly
” End to end business processes work appropriately
” Requirements and rules are appropriate and complete thereby meeting the needs of the business
” Roles-based usage works accordingly
Approximate total number of UAT test scenarios and test cases/scripts expected to be generated by the contractor:
” Approximately 40 use cases that include an average of 4 scenarios each. Would expect more than 1 per scenario per use case
” Approximately 36 workflow use cases that include 1 scenario per use case.
” Approximately 36 workflow use cases that include an average of 3 scenarios each.
” Approximately 25 correspondence use cases.
” Approximately 11 different scenarios within RAS where a workflow item may be created.
” Approximately 24 different scenarios within Claims Processing where a workflow item may be created.
” The numbers above represent an “atomic” approach to testing of requirements and does not consider scripts needed to test system integration.
Approximate total number of critical business requirements for the health claims systems against which test scenarios and test cases/scripts will be built and tested
” Approximately 300 “features” defined in each BRD.
” Approximately 960 requirements to be tested (40 use cases X 4 scenarios X 6 steps).
” Approximately 500 rules to be tested.
UAT testing will take place at the Health Eligibility Center in Atlanta, Georgia and will be expected to last 20 working days.

H.4 Organizational Conflicts of Interest – Disclosure

(a) Purpose. This clause applies to the Contractor and its affiliates, consultants and subcontractors of any tier (collectively referred to as “Contractor”). This clause must be included in all subcontracts and other agreements executed by the prime contractor in connection with submitting the prime contractor’s proposal or performing the work. Attention also is directed to FAR Subpart 9.5 and the provisions which follow.

(b) Government Contractor Participation in Solicitation/Statement of Work, Award or Administration. The following Government contractors participated in the preparation of the Statement of Work/Solicitation or are expected to assist in the award and administration of the contract:

1. Infinity Technology
2. Horizon Industries LTD.

(c) Scope-Actual or Potential Conflicts of Interest. This clause is intended to ensure that the Contractor (1) does not obtain or appear to obtain an unfair competitive advantage over other parties by virtue of actual or potential unauthorized use or disclosure of proprietary or procurement-related information, (2) does not obtain or appear to obtain an unfair competitive advantage over other parties by virtue of any relationship (social, familial, financial etc) between the Contractor or Contractor’s employees and any Government employee, Government contractor or Government contractor employee involved in the procurement process or the administration of the contract whether or not specifically identified in this solicitation, (3) is not biased or potentially biased or its ability to render impartial advice to the Government impaired or potentially impaired due to Contractor’s current or planned interests (financial, contractual, organizational or otherwise) that relate to the services performed or products to be delivered under this solicitation, or (4) any other potential conflict of interest identified or within the scope of FAR 9.5. Parts (1), (2) and (3) above are examples of potential conflicts of interest governed by this clause.

(d) Contractor Representation. The Contractor represents by submission of its offer that, to the best of its knowledge and belief, Contractor has no actual or potential conflict of interest or, pursuant to paragraph (e), has disclosed to the Contracting Officer in writing all relevant information regarding any actual or potential conflict of interest.

(e) Contractor Disclosure of Actual or Potential Conflicts of Interest Before and After Award. If, before or after award, an actual or potential conflict of interest is identified by the Government or discovered by the Contractor, the Contractor shall immediately make a full disclosure in writing to the Contracting Officer. The Contractor further recognizes that during the term of this contract, conditions may change which may give rise to a newly recognized actual or potential conflict of interest. In the event that the Government identifies or the Contractor discovers an actual or potential conflict of interest before or after award, the Contractor shall, at a minimum, immediately provide the following information:

(1) a description of the actual or potential conflict of interest and identify the parties involved;
(2) a description of the work affected by the actual or potential conflict of interest; and
(3) a mitigation plan as described in section (f).

(f) Mitigation Plan. To the extent that the Contractor or the Government has at any time before or after award identified an actual or potential conflict of interest, the Contractor shall propose a mitigation plan which concisely describes all relevant facts concerning any potential conflict of interest including any past, present, or currently planned interest (financial, contractual, organizational, or otherwise) relating to the services performed or product to be delivered under this solicitation. The mitigation plan shall describe the actions or planned actions the Contractor has taken or proposes to take, to avoid, mitigate, or neutralize the conflict of interest. If accepted by the Contracting Officer, the mitigation plan will become part of the contract.

(g) Final Authority. The Contracting Officer is the final authority in determining whether a conflict of interest exists and whether the conflict of interest has been adequately mitigated, neutralized or avoided.

(h) Remedies. The presence of an actual or potential conflict of interest that, in the Contracting Officer’s discretion, cannot be avoided, mitigated or neutralized, may preclude the Contractor from competing for the award or, if the conflict is discovered after award and cannot, in the Contracting Officer’s discretion, be neutralized, mitigated or avoided, may result in termination of the contract. If the conflict of interest results from conflicting financial or other interests involving Contractor personnel performing under this agreement, the Contracting Officer may require the Contractor to remove such personnel from performance of work under the contract as a means to avoid, neutralize or mitigate the conflict of interest. If the Contractor was or, with reasonable diligence, should have been aware of a potential conflict of interest before award, or discovers or with reasonable diligence should have discovered an actual or potential conflict after award and does not disclose or misrepresents relevant information to the Contracting Officer, it will be deemed a material breach of the agreement/solicitation. In that event, the Government may elect to terminate the contract for default. Nothing herein shall prevent the Government from electing any other appropriate remedies afforded by other provisions of this agreement, or statute or regulation.
(i) The Contractor may not compete for any requirement that incorporates, involves or relates to any work performed by contractor under this solicitation unless otherwise authorized in writing by the Contracting Officer.

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONSTITUTES THE ONLY SOLICITATION; QUOTATIONS ARE BEING REQUESTED, AND A WRITTEN SOLICITATION DOCUMENT WILL NOT BE ISSUED.
This solicitation is a Request for Quotation (RFQ). Simplified Acquisition Procedures shall be utilized. The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-63.

The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 518210, Data Processing, Hosting, and Related Services, with a small business size standard of $30M dollars. This acquisition is being procured as a small business set-aside.

Background

For almost two decades the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), as part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD, has focused on increasing the competitiveness of the United States industrial base by bridging the productivity gap for manufacturers, identifying opportunities for growth, and encouraging technology deployment.

MEP provides its manufacturing customers with a wide array of fundamental services in business and process improvements helping them to stay strong and ready to compete in the global market. We focus on the future for manufacturers by making advanced technology adoption a reality for any-sized business.

To accomplish our mission MEP has used conferencing services with government and non-government entities to facilitate communications and outreach of the Gaithersburg staff as well as the MEP national system as a whole.

The purpose of this acquisition is to obtain teleconferencing services that provide an on-demand, self-service collaboration environment with both web and video-based multi-media conferencing service (i.e., webconferencing and video conferencing) that can be used by government and non-government entities.

MEP is looking to save travel costs and time while making meetings more efficient and leverage telecommuting technology by sharing documents, agendas, and recordings, and integrating video in a convenient and accessible online meeting space that provides one unified collaborative meeting area for both web conferences and video conferences allowing people to attend meetings from anywhere, anytime, and on any device inside and outside of NIST’s firewalls. A secure, low-cost, low-maintenance, standards-based (non-proprietary) business class/enterprise cloud software-as-a-service provider with bundled licensing options including meeting applications for web and video conferencing, training, and technical support is required.

Period of Performance: 2/1/2013 to 1/31/2014

Delivery Terms

The contractor shall deliver line item 0001 to NIST, Building 301, Shipping and Receiving, Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1640.

Technical Evaluation Criteria
