SPECIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: The SOCOM War-game Center requires an interactive, collaborative, and virtual planning system to depict a realistic, three-dimensional (3D) global, regional and/or urban large scale geographic locale in an auditorium-like environment space. The Virtual Planning Workspace system will include the following capabilities: Interactive Capability – allows user(s) to manipulate data in the virtual display space wherein the manipulated space is changed and allows for simultaneous manipulation by more than one user. Collaborative Capability – allows user(s) to input data that is additive, subtractive or enhancing to the visual space from outstations via remote Internet-based capability. Collaboration may occur during the SOCOM War-game Center main work day and also non-working hours to set the stage for the next day of the planning session using tools at remote user’s location and/or choice of interface. Remote Capability – configuration of the virtual display space so users can view activities from remote out stations via Internet based technology. Capability allows for broadcast of the event both in real time and non-synchronous teleconferencing platform. Virtual Display Space – a 3D visual system that displays the geographic locale including any demographic make-up of the terrain in both air and space and any manipulations of display from the interactive, collaborative and virtual systems. Any 3D display may not exceed 20 feet long by 32 feet wide in accordance with facility space constraints. Facility Description. War-game Center events occur within a USSOCOM facility and utilize the following multiple display mediums at this time which need to be included for this effort. See Attachment 1 for facility depiction and complete list of specifications of the general equipment listing below. • Projection screens • LED monitors • 3D terrain model • Printed material • 58 person elevated seated area • Perceptive Pixel Monitors • Virtual Teleconference (VTC) Capability • Observation area (not an interactive participant) • Current Software or minimum compatibility requirements Physical Constraints.

To the maximum extent possible, these questions and comments will be addressed at the Pre-SolicitationConference. ORIGINAL SYNOPSIS: The primary goal of this acquisition is to establish a Department-Wide Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Contract vehicle for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to provide technical, acquisition, and business support services. The acquisition and resulting multiple award contracts will be collectively referred to as TABSS (Technical, Acquisition and BusinessSupport Services). The United States Coast Guard (USCG) is conducting this department-wide acquisition with on behalf of DHS and all of its components. Use of this contract vehicle will be limited to all DHS components. The technical, acquisition and business support services to be acquired can be categorized into three domains: (1) Program Management, Engineering and Technology Support Services, (2)Business, Financial Management and Audit Support Services and (3) Contract Management Support Services. These domains comprise the professional services necessary to support a wide-range of Departmental requirements, to include DHS component organizations as well as those more specific in meeting the programmatic needs of the United States Coast Guard Acquisition Directorate (CG-9). The objectives for this acquisition include: a) Providing a comprehensive range of support services for use throughout the DHS. b) Providing a continuous alignment between business strategy, business processes, and various management support services while simultaneously maintaining an acquisition approach based on flexibility and efficiency. c) Leveraging the DHS spend in acquiring essential support services in an effective, economical, and expedient manner consistent with the DHS mission through the use of this enterprise-wide contract. d) Promote and support DHS socio-economic goals and initiatives. This acquisition is intended to replace numerous disparate contracts at USCG, as well as 3 multiple-award Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) awarded by the DHS Strategic Sourcing Program Office. Said multiple-award BPAs consist of those for Acquisition Support Services, Financial Management Support Services and Program Management Support Services, which are scheduled to expire between May and June 2011. TABSS will also serve in companion to the Program Management, Administrative, Clerical and Technical Services (PACTS) contract. Although PACTS may appear to provide similar services as the TABSS Program Management, Engineering and Technology Support Services domain, the PACTS services are more generalized in nature. Under the TABSS vehicle, program management services are intended to meet a full range of specialized Program, Business, and Acquisition support services across multiple domains ensuring business continuity and integration. In the case of requirements overlap for a specific task order, PACTS will remain DHS’ preferred vehicle. This acquisition will utilize both unrestricted and small business set-aside award tracks. DHS intends to award a sufficient number of contracts to maintain effective competition in each of the domain tracks. There will be multiple unrestricted and Small Business award tracks, as shown below. The number of awardees per track will be determined later, and may not be uniform among tracks. 1. Program Management, Engineering and Technology Support Services Domain; Unrestricted Track 2. Program Management, Engineering and Technology Support Services Domain; Small Business Track 3. Program Management, Engineering and Technology Support Services Domain; preferred 8(a) Track 4. Business, Financial Management and Audit Support Services Domain; Unrestricted Track 5. Business, Financial Management and Audit Support Services Domain; Small Business Track 6. Business, Financial Management and Audit Support Services Domain; preferred SDV Track 7. Contract Management Support Services Domain; preferred 8(a) Track The resulting IDIQ contract will have an ordering period of five (5) years from award. A draft solicitation for this acquisition is currently planned to be released in May 2010. Interested parties will have 1-2 weeks to submit questions and comments related to this draft. These questions and comments will be addressed at an Industry Day/Pre-solicitation Conference in late May or early June 2010. DHS anticipates release of a final solicitation shortly following this event. Contractors will be provided sufficient time after solicitation relaserelease to develop and submit proposals. An email address has been established for this acquisition – TABSS@USCG.MIL.

Title of Project Management, Organizational and Business Improvement Services: Update ORM EEO Presentation for Executives, VA Employees, Supervisors, and Managers. 2. Purpose of Project To update a state-of-the art, interactive, training presentation previously developed for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Office of Resolution Management in 2010 that targets Senior Executives and other audiences within VA, providing them with mandatory Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) training. The Office of Resolution Managements mission is to “promote a discrimination free work environment that focused on serving veterans by preventing and resolving, workplace disputes in a timely and high-quality manner.” The presentation shall engage Senior Executive Service (SES) members and equivalents in guided discussions which will enable them to understand their legal responsibility to maintain a discrimination free work environment; to know the benefits of making the EEO complaint process work within the VA; to encourage subordinate managers to engage in productive interactions when responding to EEO allegations and complaints; and to diffuse disruptive situations, workplace disputes and EEO complaints by using conflict management and alternative dispute resolution strategies. This initiative provides a structure for delivering mandatory training to help promote equal opportunity and diversity within VA and provide VA Senior Executives with tools to help to resolve workplace disputes constructively in order to maintain a high-performing workforce. 3. Background The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is committed to ensuring equal employment opportunity (EEO), promoting diversity and inclusion, and resolving workplace conflict constructively in order to maintain a high-performing workforce in service to our Nation’s Veterans. The Secretary of Veterans Affairs has vocalized and demonstrated VA’s strong commitment to maintaining a high-performing organization in the 21st century. The Secretary is committed to vigorously enforcing all applicable Federal EEO laws, regulations, Executive Orders, and Management Directives to ensure equal opportunity in the workplace and full protection of all VA employees. The Department is staunchly committed to creating and maintaining an environment within VA that is free of barriers to full participation, that leverages diversity, and empowers every individual to contribute to his or her fullest potential in service to the Department and to the Nation’s Veterans. In 2009, consistent with this effort, the Secretary announced to the Department “Transformation 21.” One of the Transformation 21 initiatives addresses Human Capital Investment, and specifically states: “This VA-wide initiative helps offer the highest quality in medical care, benefits, and memorial services by creating a talent pool of trained, certified, and inspired employees. In support of Transformation 21 and in compliance with Title 5, U.S. Code, Section 3396, which requires Federal agencies to establish programs for the systematic development of Senior Executives, the Assistant Secretary for Human Resources and Administration (HR&A) mandated the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) in collaboration with the Office of Resolution Management (ORM) analyze, design, develop, implement and evaluate training and development activities for VA’s Senior Executive Service in diversity and inclusion and equal employment opportunity (EEO) compliance. 4. Scope of Work The scope of work is limited to updating a 3.5 hour interactive instructor-led training presentation that provides instruction on the Federal EEO Complaint Process, granting Reasonable Accommodation, Preventing Workplace Retaliation, and Maximizing the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution. The presentation shall incorporate the technologies of an Audience Response System, video, voiceover scenarios, 3D animations, illustrations, Flash presentations, and interactive applications to garner the attention of participants and ensure the successful transfer and retention of information shared during the instruction. The presentation shall also incorporate Knowledge Checks which will use an Audience Response System to measure learning and to gauge how well the participants enjoyed the learning process and the extent to which they gained knowledge and skills. 5. Place of Performance The work shall be performed at the Contractor’s site of business. There shall be no travel involved. All meetings with the Contracting Officer’s Representative shall be conducted via audio conference call, Micro-Soft LiveMeeting or at the Contractor’s facility. 6.

D. Based on the determinations of the independent risk analysis, the Contractor shall be responsible for paying to the VA liquidated damages in the amount of $37.50 per affected individual to cover the cost of providing credit protection services to affected individuals consisting of the following: (i) Notification; (ii) One year of credit monitoring services consisting of automatic daily monitoring of at least 3 relevant credit bureau reports; (iii) Data breach analysis; (iv) Fraud resolution services, including writing dispute letters, initiating fraud alerts and credit freezes, to assist affected individuals to bring matters to resolution; (v) One year of identity theft insurance with $20,000.00 coverage at $0 deductible; and (vi) Necessary legal expenses the subjects may incur to repair falsified or damaged credit records, histories, or financial affairs. 19.

If products are available commercially that meet some, but not all of the standards, the agency shall procure the product that best meets the standards. When applying this standard, all procurements of EIT shall have documentation of market research that identify a list of products or services that first meet the agency business needs, and from that list of products or services, an analysis that the selected product met more of the accessibility requirements than the non-selected products as required by FAR 39.2. 36 CFR 1194.3(b) – Incidental to Contract, all EIT that is exclusively owned and used by the Contractor to fulfill this work statement does not require compliance with Section 508.
