It has been determined that competition will be limited to a total small business set aside. The Government will evaluate offers and select the awardee(s) utilizing a best value approach in accordance with FAR 15.101. In using this best value approach, the Government seeks to award to those offerors who give the Department of Labor the greatest confidence that they will best meet the requirement at a fair and reasonable price.

This may result in an award being made to higher rated, higher priced offerors where the decision is consistent with the evaluation factors in the Request for Proposal (RFP) and it has been determined that the technical superiority or superior past performance of higher priced offerors outweighs the cost difference. All successful awardees are guaranteed a minimum of $2,500.00. An actual solicitation is expected to be issued on or about 11 July 2012.

TITLE: ENGAGEMENT SKILLS TRAINER (EST II) – REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) dated January 12, 2012 Notice Type: RFI Response Date: 15 days after Hands on Demo of EST or NLT 5 March 2012 Original Set aside: N/A Set Aside: N/A Classification Code: 69 – Training Aids and Devices NAICS Code: 333- Machinery Manufacturing / 333319 – Other Commercial and Service Industry Machinery Manufacturing BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE ACQUISITION: The U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training, and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), Program Management Combined Arms Tactical Trainers (PM CATT), Project Manager for Ground Combat Tactical Trainers (PM GCTT) is contemplating a new contract for a technical refresh of fielded Engagement Skills Trainers (EST)/marksmanship trainers and their weapons to a EST II, procurement of EST II systems and EST II weapons, New Equipment Training, Pre-Planned ProductImprovements (P3I) on the EST II systems and weapons , and logistic support. This contract encompasses the application of current and emerging technologies to provide the required training capability through a technical refresh of its current systems and weapons, as well as procurement of new systems and weapons. This Request for Information (RFI) solicits industry’s feedback augmenting the information received in the previous EST RFI dated 24 May 2011. PEO STRI is currently developing its acquisition approach as well as the Period of Performance (POP) of the contract. However, award will be made to that offeror who offers the Best Overall Value to the Government. This acquisition will require access to information classified as “Sensitive but Unclassified” or “For Official Use Only”. BACKGROUND: The current Engagement SkillsTrainer (EST) is a simulator that provides marksmanship training and trains soldiers on virtually all aspects of firearms training from calibrating weapons, to weapons qualification, to collective fire scenarios in numerous environments. The EST is a unit/institutional, indoor, multipurpose, multi-lane, small arms, crew-served and individual anti-tank training simulation that saves currently required ammunition resources, operation and personnel tempo, as well as travel time and costs to and from ranges. It enables training across three different modes: individual marksmanship; small unit (collective) gunnery and tactical training; and judgmental use of force (shoot/don’t shoot (S/DS)), which includes Escalation of Force/graduated response scenarios. It simulates weapon training events that lead to live-fire individual or crew weapon qualification and training events currently not resourced under Standards in Training Commission (STRAC). Squad leaders are able to control and evaluate individual, fire team, and squad performance on numerous types of small arms weapons used by U.S. forces and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers. The EST Basic Rifle Marksmanship (BRM) training reduces the requirements for remedial live-fire training. Soldiers must ‘pass’ marksmanship gates on the EST prior to going on the live range. Using the EST capability of rifle cant, trigger pressure, and before-the-shot, during-the-shot, and after-the-shot After Action Reviews (AARs), trainers can quickly identify and correct problems thus raising confidence and first-time qualifications. Currently, the Army uses EST for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) qualification as well as night-fire qualification. INTENDED CAPABILITIES FOR NEW EST II CONTRACT: 1. Primarily EST II shall provide high fidelity marksmanship training events utilizing both performance and results feedback. Trainees must be able to zero on the EST, apply the corrections to a battle-sight zeroed weapon, and get reasonable accuracy on a live-fire range. a. System point accuracy 0.2 mils with round to round ammunition dispersion based on U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) ballistics. b. Pseudo real-time Line Of Sight (LOS) correlation to the projection screen. c. Pseudo real-time Point of Aim (POA)/Point of Impact (POI) for all rounds fired. d. High fidelity After Action Review (AAR) at student and Instructor Operator Station (IOS). e. High fidelity weapon interface for Form, Fit and Function with Magazine loading. f. All U.S. Army standard Courses of Fire (COF) with results feedback on doctrine scorecard. g. Provides pre and post aim point trace for individual weapons. h. Provides burst by burst trace for machine gun weapons. 2. Ability to provide training events that support realistic physics-based modeling for environments and models with variable outcomes. 3. Sufficient intellectual property rights in the interface protocols for the Government to allow a third-party contractor to maintain and repair the system and its weapons. 4. Ability to support High Definition Television (HDTV) format interactive video training events for judgmental use of force SDS training. 5. Provide ongoing ability to integrate the Army POR for gaming (currently Virtual Battlespace 2 (VBS 2) into the system.

Market Research is being conducted to identify technologies and production capabilities of industry that could support the next generation EST II Program POR. The purpose of this RFI is to identify companies which have technologies and expertise that can be or have been applied to the Small Arms Training Task. The EST II Program POR is exploring the possibilities of applying current and emerging technologies to provide the required training capability. One of the goals of this market research is to identify technical approaches which transfer the burden of marksmanship fault identification from the human instructor to the training system which could then potentially provide remediation for fault correction. The current system (EST 2000) is defined as a system which is a unit / institutional, indoor, multipurpose, multi-lane, small arms, crew-served and individual anti-tank training simulation that enables training across three different modes: individual marksmanship; small unit (collective) gunnery and tactical training; and judgmental use of force (shoot/don’t shoot), which includes Escalation of Force / graduated response scenarios. Interested Sources should provide the following information: 1). Pertinent Company administrative data as to large or small business category IAW the designated NAICS. Each offeror is to identify whether or not the company is a STOC II prime. 2). Company history. 3). Identify company interest in the program as a Prime contractor or subcontractor to a prime. Each offeror is to provide recent program history (last 10 years) of company past experience in delivering small arms trainers or components of small arms trainers. 4). Identification of technologies which have potential and/or demonstrated application to the small arms training task. Each identified technology is to be categorized by Technology Readiness Level rating system. Responses to this RFI are to not exceed 15 single sided, letter-sized pages. Font is not to be smaller than 12 points. This announcement is published for market research purposed only. This notice does not constitute an invitation for bids or a Request for Proposal (RFP) and is not a commitment by the U.S. Government to procure subject products.

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 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. Due to the large number of parties interested in this acquisition, use of email communication (sent to this address) is strongly encouraged to ensure timely response to questions. This synopsis corresponds to Advance Acquisition Plan (AAP) 62889, which is posted on the DHS AAP website(https://www.fido.gov/dhs/aap/publicview.asp).
