This solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-51. This procurement is Total Small Business Set-Aside. The associated NAICS code 541890. The total period of performance under this contract shall be base period of 12 months with two (2) option periods twelve (12) months each. This is a Fixed Price Award Fee contract with not to exceed travel line item. The resultant contract will be funded using Prevention and Public Health Funds (PPHF). Additional PPHF reporting as required per Health and Human Services Acquisition Regulation (HHSAR) clause 352.204-16 is incorporated in full text. The purpose of the National Tobacco Education Campaign is to educate the public about the harmful effects of tobacco use and encourage smokers to quit. Our objectives will be to raise awareness of the health consequences of tobacco use; encourage cessation of tobacco products; and to direct people to free resources to help them quit. This campaign will support and reinforce the messages delivered by state and community media campaigns. The primary target audience for this campaign is the adult smoker ages 18-54. Secondary audiences include adult and young adult non-smokers, parents, family members, and adolescents. Coordinated mass media, public and private sector partnerships, and earned and social media strategies are core elements of the campaign. This is a Performance Base Award. The main purpose of this contract is to conduct a paid national media campaign which will run for three to six months (per performance period). The contractor should describe in its proposal a strategy for implementing a paid national media campaign, recognizing that with limited funds available, an emphasis would need to be placed on leveraging media dollars to the greatest extent possible and considering the best ratio of national to localized placement. Contractors are encouraged to include budgets for the costs of running a 12- vs. 24-week buy (3 vs. 6 month campaign) in all 200+ designated market areas (DMAs). The contractor shall develop up to fifteen (15) ad packages (5 in the Base year, 5 in Option period one and 5 in Option period two) that may target particular underserved populations at high risk for tobacco use. For the purposes of this contract, an ad package refers to the comprehensive development of an ad concept, with at least one execution in these mediums: television, radio, print, out of home, and digital executions. Note that certain executions will have multiple variations in sizes, etc. The contractor is also free to propose additional creative ad assets. For the campaign to be successful, a thorough understanding of the target audiences, the health behaviors promoted, and the barriers and motivators for the target audiences taking action is essential. This understanding will inform the placement of media, facilitate the development of messages, and enhance the campaign strategies and tactics that resonate with the target audiences. Contractors are encouraged to be creative and offer their best ideas to CDC. The following attached documents are an integral component of this synopsis/solicitation: 1. Attachment 1- Contract Line Items 2. Attachment 2- Performance Work Statement 3. Attachment 3- Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan 4. Attachment 4- Award Fee Plan Your submission should include three separate proposals: technical, business and past performance. Evaluation of Offeror’s proposals shall occur in a two stage process. In Stage One, the offeror’s written technical and business proposals will be evaluated based on the criteria listed below. After initial evaluation, and for the purposes of efficiency, the Government may elect to establish a competitive range limited to those Offerors that are the most highly rated, based only on the Offeror’s written technical and business proposal. In Stage Two, Offerors in the Competitive Range will be invited to participate in Oral presentations. During this stage the Offeror’s Oral Presentation will be evaluated and the scoring thereof added to the Offeror’s written proposal (Stage One score) to form the overall rating for the Offeror. Past Performance will be evaluated for all offerors in the Competitive Range on performance documentation or any other pertinent information available to the Government. This contract will be awarded to the Offeror whose proposal is considered to be the best value to the Government, price and other factors considered. For purposes of this evaluation, technical factors are more important than price in making the award determination. The Government will not make an award at a higher overall cost to the Government to achieve only slightly superior performance. Quality Assurance Surveillance and Award Fee Plan The contractor evaluation of this contract will be subject to the terms and conditions of the Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan (QASP) per attachment 3, and the award fee will be based on the criteria contained in the Award Fee Plan, attachment 4. The QASP is a Government developed document and the purpose is used to ensure that the Government receives quality services, and pays only for services actually provided. The QASP provides a systematic method to evaluate the services the Contractor is required to furnish. The QASP includes a Performance Requirement Summary, which will be used to gauge the Contractor’s commitment to successful performance, its willingness to stand behind its products and services during the course of the contract, as well as its confidence and ability to perform. The award fee plan sets forth specific criteria and procedures used to evaluate Contractor performance and to determine the amount of award fee earned during the performance of the contract. The Government may modify this award fee plan through unilateral modification at any time. Part I: Technical Proposal: The Contractor shall limit the technical proposal to 50 single-sided pages (not including appendices and exhibits), 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper of 12-point font. Pages exceeding the specified limit will be removed and not forwarded for evaluation. The narrative plan must include a technical approach & plan of operation, staffing & management work plan, proposed deliverables, and key deadline dates. In addition, the Contractor must provide a description of corporate qualifications and past/similar experience to demonstrate the company’s ability to successfully complete assignments of comparable size and complexity. Proposals which merely offer to conduct a program in accordance with the requirements of the Government’s statement of work will not be eligible for award. The technical proposal should be in as much detail as considered necessary to reflect a clear understanding of the nature of the work being undertaken. The technical proposal must not contain reference to cost; however, resource information, such as data concerning labor hours and categories, materials, subcontracts, etc., must be contained in the technical proposal so that the Offeror’s understanding of the work can be evaluated. For purposes of the requirements set forth under this contract, the evaluation will be based upon the following criteria in descending order of importance: Criteria Value of criteria Similar Experience 40% Technical Approach and Plan of Operation 25% Oral Presentation 20% Staffing and Management Plan 15% Total: 100% Part II: Business Proposal The business proposal shall include the total price for the entire project, and shall be broken down by the task activities as set forth in the performance work statement. Pricing shall be a firm fixed priced, with a not to exceed Travel Line Item, and an Award fee determined by the Government. The price should be included as an appendix in an Excel spreadsheet itemized per task including cost for any subcontracted work. Budgets, staff hours, and other direct costs should be organized around the tasks and related deliverables described in the PWS. Offerors shall propose a payment schedule based on completion of defined milestones or specified deliverables in accordance with the PWS. Part III: Past Performance The Government will evaluate the quality of the Offeror’s past performance as it relates to accomplishing the requirements of the Statement of Work. Evaluation of past performance will be a subjective assessment based on a consideration of all relevant facts and circumstances. By past performance, the Government means the Offeror’s record of conforming to specifications and standards of good workmanship; the Offeror’s record of forecasting and controlling costs; the Offeror’s adherence to contract schedules and terms, including the administrative aspects of performance; the Offeror’s reputation for reasonable and cooperative behavior and commitment to customer satisfaction; and generally, the Offeror’s business-like concern for the interest of the customer and the degree of quality of deliverables and performance A list of no more than three (3) most current (within the last 5 years), relevant contracts and/or subcontracts (completed or currently in progress) for the prime offeror and any subcontractors (3 each for prime and significant subcontract(s)).

Due to the expected high volume of proposals, offerors hand delivering their proposals need to use the loading dock on the T Street Southwest (SW) side of the Jemal Building. Upon arrival at the loading dock area, offerors should go through the brown gate and climb the stairs to enter the building at the loading dock guard desk. Please see the attached map for further information; note that this map is not a part of Amendment 7. Please also note that the delivery building and address (1900 Half Street SW, Washington, D.C., 20593) are the same as before; only the proposal reception area is being changed. (2) To reiterate, all proposals are due by 3 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST) on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011. All offerors planning to hand deliver proposals before Wednesday, March 2nd, are encouraged to coordinate their proposal deliveries with Nathan Dolezal or with Katherine Powers to ensure proper proposal reception. This coordination can be done via email to Nate.Dolezal@uscg.mil or Katherine.Powers@uscg.mil. All offerors planning to hand deliver their proposals on Wednesday, March 2nd, are encouraged to plan accordingly due to the aforementioned proposal volume and limited parking at the Jemal Building. (3) After the government receives the offeror’s package, the government will provide a receipt of confirmation. This receipt is provisional pending the package successfully passing the government screening process. Any offeror who has not received a confirmation receipt or is not in line at the loading dock of the Jemal Building by 3 PM EST will have their proposal considered late.

The acquisition and resulting multiple award contracts will be collectively referred to as TABSS (Technical, Acquisition and Business Support 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 businesssupport 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 businessset-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.
