69–SYNOPSIS – Notice of Intent for the Special Operations Forces Aviation Systems Trainers – Enhancements (SOFAST-E) W900KK-12-R-0021 113012 Matthew Sanders, 407-208-3327 PEO STRI Acquisition CenterPROGRAM DESCRIPTION The SOFAST-E contract vehicle will support the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR) located at Ft. Campbell, KY and its tenant units at Hunter Army Airfield, GA and Fort Lewis, WA. This support will comprise concurrency, technical refresh, sustainment, obsolescence, modernization and manufacturing efforts to the fielded Special Operations Aviation suite of Training Aids, Devices, Simulators and Simulations (TADSS) which include: Combat Mission Simulators (CMS) Desk Top Trainer (DTT) Battle Staff Training System (BSTS) Exercise Management Control (EMC) Mission Rehearsal Operations Center (MROC) Storage Area Network (SAN) SYNOPSIS – Notice of Intent to Solicit the SOFAST-E Effort as a Small Business Set-Aside The SOFAST-E Government team evaluated the capability of industry to successfully execute the contract and, based upon the conclusive findings derived from the responses submitted for the associated Requests for Information (RFI), has concluded that this effort will be solicited as a five year, Single Award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity Contract (ID/IQC) set-aside for Small Business. This Small Business set-aside competition shall be conducted outside of the PEO STRI Omnibus Contract II (STOC II) vehicle. While the Government can define the minimum quantity requirements for the next 5 years, they are unable to determine when and what type of configurations the customer will require; hence the need for a separate ID/IQC. Per this decision, any firm desiring to participate as a prime contractor in this solicitation must be a recognized Small Business under NAICS Code 333319, in accordance with FAR 19.301. For those interested Small Businesses, please familiarize yourself, if you have not already, with the Limitations on Subcontracting requirements under FAR 52.219-14. The Government is currently in the process of finalizing its draft requirements documentation. It is the Governments intent to release this information to industry as part of a draft Request for Proposal (RFP) via FedBizOpps prior to holding a PreSolicitation Conference. The dates and location of the conference are still tentative and will be announced in conjunction with the draft RFP release. DISCLAIMER: 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 or services nor will the Government reimburse any parties for costs associated with this request.

Past Performance– The following will be considered in evaluating a Contractor’s past performance: Demonstrated record (as confirmed by references) of recent successful past performance of efforts of similar size and complexity to that being solicited herein.   Recent past performance is defined as all or part of the period of performance having occurred within 36 months of RFQ closing date.   An effort of “similar size and complexity” for the purpose of this evaluation means a similar volume of waste material recycled, and a similar number of sites serviced.   No-cost contracts similar to the one currently being solicited are preferred as past performance references.   Contractors shall provide two (2) separate past performance references.   The past performance submission shall include company/agency name, period of performance, point of contact, telephone and e-mail address.   Additionally, for each reference, the contractor shall provide a brief description of how the identified effort is similar in size and complexity to the effort being solicited.   Contractors shall also provide the dollar amount for referenced projects if they were not performed at no cost.   Dollar amount as described herein refers to the amount paid to the vendor for such services.   CBP will provide past performance references with a past performance questionnaire, which is provided for informational purposes as an attachment to the solicitation.   The Government may, at its discretion, obtain and evaluate information from sources other than those provided by the Contractor.
