GRINTER W15QKN-12-R-F012RESPONSE DATE: 30 March 2012 New EquipmentTraining (NET) Videos for the M14 EBR and M150 RCO This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. This solicitation and any resultant award will be processed in accordance with FAR 13 Simplified Acquisition Procedures. Solicitation number W15QKN-12- R-F012 is being issued as a request for quotation (RFP). The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-55, effective 02 February 2012. This requirement has been set-aside for small business under NAICS code 512110 with a smallbusiness size standard of $29,500,000. The Army Contracting Command – New Jersey (ACC-NJ) Soldier Weapons Center, at Picatinny Arsenal, NJ 07806-5000, on behalf of PM Soldier Weapons has two requirements for New Equipment Training (NET) videos that adequately explain and train the intricacies of the M14 Enhanced Battle Rifle (EBR), and the M150 Rifle Combat Optic (RCO) in accordance with the attached Statements of Objectives (SOO) – Attachments 1 and 2.

The place of delivery, acceptance and FOB point is: U.S. Army ARDEC SFAE-SDR-IW, Bldg. 151 Picatinny Arsenal, NJ 07806 Attn: Mike Bozzelli INSTRUCTIONS: Offerors responding to this announcement shall submit their quote in accordance with the attached Instructions to Offerors (Attachment 5). The Government intends to evaluate proposals and award a contract without discussions. Therefore, the offeror’s initial proposal should contain the offeror’s best terms from a price and technical standpoint. The Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if the Contracting Officer later determines them to be necessary. If the Contracting Officer determines that the number of proposals that would otherwise be in the competitive range exceeds the number at which an efficient competition can be conducted, the Contracting Officer may limit the number of proposals in the competitive range to the greatest number that will permit an efficient competition among the most highly rated proposals. BASIS FOR AWARD: The Government plans to award two (2) fixed price purchase orders as a result of this Request for Proposal (RFP). Offerors can submit a proposal for either one, or both of the requirements. Offerors submitting proposals for both requirements shall submit two (2) separate proposals, one (1) for each requirement. The evaluation of quotes will be conducted utilizing the Tradeoff Source Selection Process in accordance with FAR 15.101-1. In using the Tradeoff Source Selection approach, the Government seeks to award to an offeror who gives the greatest confidence that it will best meet and/or exceed the requirements. This process allows for a tradeoff between non-cost factors and cost/price and allows the Government to accept other than the lowest priced proposal or other than the highest technically rated proposal to achieve a best-value contract award. Award will be made to the offeror whose proposal represents the best value to the Government. The Government intends to award two (2) purchase orders as a result of this Request for Proposal (RFP). EVALUATION FACTORS AND EVALUATION APPROACH AREAS TO BE EVALUATED: Appropriate consideration will be given to the three evaluation factors: Technical, Past Performance and Price. The Technical factor consists of the subfactors identified below. There are no subfactors for Price. Technical Subfactors: Subfactor A: Equipment and Personnel Subfactor B: Schedule The Technical factor is more important than the Past Performance factor. The Past Performance factor is significantly more important than the Price factor. The Technical subfactors are of equal importance. To receive consideration for award, a final rating of no less than Acceptable must be achieved for all Technical sub-factors. The proposal will be evaluated to determine whether the offerors response has adequately and completely considered, defined, and satisfied the requirements specified in the solicitation. The proposal will be evaluated to determine the extent to which each objective of the Statement of Objectives has been addressed in the proposal. The evaluation process will consider the following: 1. Factor I: Technical – Evaluation of the following technical sub-factors will specifically consider: Technical Subfactor A – Equipment and Personnel: The proposal will be evaluated to determine whether the offeror has personnel on hand who adequately demonstrate the level of competence and technical proficiency needed to carry out the objectives called out in the Statement of Objectives (SOO). The proposal will be evaluated to determine whether the offeror has the equipment (or plan and schedule to obtain same) to adequately carry out the objectives listed in the SOO. Technical Subfactor B – Schedule: The proposal will be evaluated to determine whether the offeror has clearly identified all deliverables and is capable of delivering within the specified times as established in the Contract Data Requirements List. 2. Factor II: Past Performance – The Government shall consider demonstrated recent and relevant record of performance in supplying services that meet the RFQ requirements. There are no subfactors for Past Performance. 3. Factor III: Price – The Government shall determine if the proposed price is fair and reasonable. There are no subfactors for price TECHNICAL EVALUATION: The technical portion of the proposal will be rated by evaluating the technical proposal for strengths, weaknesses, and deficiencies, combined with the risks of the proposal. The combined technical/risk rating includes consideration of risk in conjunction with the strengths, weaknesses, and deficiencies in determining technical ratings. The technical subfactors will be rated individually and an integrated assessment will be performed to determine the overall Technical factor rating. The following rating definitions will be utilized in the evaluation of the overall Technical Factor rating as well as the individual Technical sub-factors: Color – Blue; Rating – Outstanding; Definition: Proposal meets requirements and indicates an exceptional approach and understanding of the requirements. Strengths far outweigh any weaknesses. Risk of unsuccessful performance is very low. Color – Purple; Rating – Good; Definition: Proposal meets requirements and indicates a thorough approach and understanding of the requirements. Proposal contains strengths which outweigh any weaknesses. Risk of unsuccessful performance is low. Color – Green; Rating – Acceptable; Definition: Proposal meets requirements and indicates an adequate approach and understanding of the requirements. Strengths and weaknesses are offsetting or will have little or no impact on contract performance. Risk of unsuccessful performance is no worse than moderate. Color – Yellow; Rating – Marginal; Definition: Proposal does not clearly meet requirements and has not demonstrated an adequate approach and understanding of the requirements. The proposal has one or more weaknesses which are not offset by strengths. Risk of unsuccessful performance is high. Color – Red; Rating – Unacceptable; Definition: Proposal does not meet requirements and contains one or more deficiencies. Proposal is unawardable. PAST PERFORMANCE EVALUATION: There are two aspects to the past performance evaluation: 1. Relevancy of a recent effort and 2. Performance level. Relevancy shall consider similarity of service/support and complexity of a performance effort that was executed by the offeror within the last three (3) years of release of this RFP. The following rating definitions will be utilized in the evaluation of past performance relevancy: Rating – Relevant; Definition: Present/past performance effort involved similar scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Rating – Not Relevant; Definition: Present/past performance effort involved little or none of the scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Performance level for each identified relevant and recent effort will be assessed by the Government evaluation team based on data provided by the offeror, the offerors customers via questionnaire (RFP Attachments 6 and 7), and other data sources available to the Government. The evaluation team will review the past performance information and determine the quality and usefulness as it applies to performance confidence assessment. Each offeror shall be assigned one of the following performance confidence ratings: Rating – Substantial Confidence; Definition: Based on the offerors recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a high expectation that the offeror will successfully perform the required effort. Rating – Satisfactory Confidence; Definition: Based on the offerors recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that the offeror will successfully perform the required effort. Rating – Limited Confidence; Definition: Based on the offerors recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a low expectation that the offeror will successfully perform the required effort. Rating – No Confidence; Definition: Based on the offerors recent/relevant performance record, the Government has no expectation that the offeror will be able to successfully perform the required effort. Rating – Unknown Confidence (Neutral); Definition: No Recent/relevant performance record is available or the offerors performance record is so sparse that no meaningful confidence assessment rating can be reasonably assigned. PRICE EVALUATION: The total evaluated price will be used in the best value determination. The Government will evaluate the overall total proposed price to determine if the proposed price is fair and reasonable. Price reasonableness will be based on competitive offers when possible. DEFINITIONS: Deficiency: A material failure of a proposal to meet a Government requirement or a combination of significant weaknesses in a proposal that increases the risk of unsuccessful contract performance to an unacceptable level. Strength: Any aspect of a proposal when judged against a stated evaluation criterion, enhances the merit of the proposal or increases the probability of successful performance of the contract. Weakness: A flaw in the proposal that increases the risk of unsuccessful contract performance. Proposal Risk: Proposal risks are those risks associated with the likelihood that an Offeror’s proposed approach will meet the requirements of the solicitation. Performance Risk: Performance risks are those risks associated with an Offeror’s likelihood of success in performing the solicitation’s requirements as indicated by that Offeror’s record of current or past performance. The Contracting Officer reserves the right to make no award under this solicitation.

STATEMENT OF WORK RATING WRITTEN ESSAY TESTS FOR U.S. CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION BACKGROUND U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is responsible for the development and implementation of assessments for entry-level selection, career development, and promotion into its mission-critical occupations. Through its shared-services agreements with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS), CBP is also responsible for the development and implementation of such assessments for mission-critical occupations in these two bureaus. For selection into the GS-5 through GS-12 grade levels of the ICE Criminal Investigator position, the best applicants who qualify for the jobs are required to take a written essay test. CBP requires that these essay tests be evaluated by experts in English language writing skills. SCOPE OF WORK CBP is responsible for providing the Contractor with the applicant essays. In addition, CBP will provide rating criteria to the Contractor and will provide guidance on the CBP rating and documentation processes. The Contractor shall rate the written essays, and provide CBP with the rated and documented results. Task 1. Kick-Off Meeting and In Progress Reviews (IPRs) Subtask 1.1. Kick-Off Meeting. Within 15 days of contract award, the Contractor shall attend the Kick-Off meeting to discuss the contract, and ensure that all parties share the same level of understanding with respect to the goals, requirements, and complexities of the project. The Kick-Off meeting will be held at CBP headquarters, Washington, DC, but may be attended via teleconference or video-conference. Subtask 1.2. Project Reporting Information. The Contractor’s Project Manager or representative approved by the CBP Contracting Officer Representative (COR) shall report the status of the project and the contracted dollar balance monthly via an invoice stating the number of essays rated and the total cost during any month that essays are rated.

The Contractor shall rate the essays (i.e., a one-page document) using two raters, who, by using the rating and documentation criteria provided by CBP, shall determine the appropriate rating. Each rater shall independently rate each essay and the final rating shall be determined by a consensus agreement of the two raters. Each rater shall give each essay an overall rating as well as ratings in four factor areas, which will be in the rating criteria provided by CBP. Raters shall provide documentation of the reasons for the given rating in a manner that comports with the rating criteria and documentation format established by CBP.

Above the mailing label write “To be opened by addressee only” but do NOT write “Sensitive” on this exterior box. All box or envelope seals must be reinforced with mailing tape even if the box or envelope has self-seal end flaps. • The tracking number should be emailed to the CBP representative on the day of mailing. • Packages will never be left unattended or put in a drop box but, instead, hand delivered to the express service’s representative. 3.0 DELIVERABLES Within two weeks of receipt of a battery of essays, the Contractor shall return to CBP via next-day tracked mail, the essays and associated rating forms along with an electronic score report giving the tester’s name, associated unique applicant identifier, the scores on each of the four factors for each rater, and the overall rating for each applicant in the battery.

The raters shall have acquired at least three years of specialized experience in rating such examinations. The Contractor shall agree to protect all materials by having each rater or person handling the essays or test booklets or assigned to this project in any way sign a Security Agreement Form (attached in Appendix A).

R — Motion Picture Licensing for Job Corps Centers DOL121RI20478 032912 Dayle White, Contracting Officer, Phone (202) 693-3248, Fax (202) 693-2965, Email white.dayle@dol.gov – Marissa G. Delacerna, Contracting Officer, Phone (202) 693-3661, Fax (202) 693-3486, Email delacerna.marissa@dol.gov Job Corps is a national training program that provides comprehensive academic, residential and career technicaltraining services to more than 60,000 disadvantaged youth each year at 125 Job Corps Centers in 48 states including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.     The Job Corps program was originally established by the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964.   Control of the program was transferred from the Office of Economic Opportunity to the Department of Labor in 1969.   The Job Corps program was later incorporated as Title IV-B of the comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1987.   Authorization continued under Title IV-B of the Job Corps Partnership Act (JTPA) of 1982 and is currently provided for under Title I-C of the Workforce Investment Act.   The program is nationally administered through the Department of Labor, Employment & Training Administration, Office of Job Corps, in Washington, D.C. and six Regional Offices. The Job Corps program provides basic educational and vocational skills training, diagnostic testing, zero tolerance for violence and drugs, intergroup relations, social skills training, work experience, counseling, residential living, recreation, health care and other support services.   The purpose of Job Corps is to assist eligible young people who can benefit from an intensive and comprehensive program, operated in the residential setting of a Job Corps center, to become more responsible, employable, and productive citizens.   Job Corps provides, in an integrated manner, a comprehensive array of services that address barriers faced by young people. In 1982, a Directive was sent to all Job Corps centers on the “Use of Home video cassettes for Showing Movies at Job Corps centers”.   The Directive stated that the showing of copyrighted movies on home videocassettes in public places such as clubs, lodges, prisons, campuses and schools had been determined to be an infringement of the copyright law.   The Directive referenced a legal opinion from the California Attorney General, which addressed the following question:   Does the showing of videocassette tapes of motion pictures to prison inmates by correctional authorities constitute an infringement of copyright?   The conclusion of the legal opinion was that the showing of videocassette tapes of motion pictures to prison inmates by correctional authorities without authorization from the copyright owner constitutes an infringement of copyright.   The Directive mandated that Job Corps centers should immediately cease using unlicensed home video cassettes. Job Corps is seeking a means of expanding entertainment and recreational opportunities for its students, which will impact positively the use of motion pictures, films and videos on Job Corps centers, provide coverage for approximately 30,000 students, and assure compliance with existing laws.   It also seeks to establish an agreement for the Department of Labor’s Job Corps program to be permitted to “Publicly Perform” as that term is used in section 101 and 106 of Title 17, United States Code, copyrighted Motion Picture which are pre-recorded on video cassettes, DVDs, downloading, online, by mail and/or other methods which are otherwise by law for home use only on Job Corps center nationwide. The chosen provider will be expected to deliver the following contracted services: 1.Secure a Motion Picture License to permit performance of motion pictures, films, and videos under the U.S. Copyright Act for obtaining and showing motion picture movies, films and videos to Job Corps students and staff in all six Regional Offices. 2.
