STATEMENT OF WORK BBG PROJECT MANAGEMENT TRAINING PURPOSE The objective of this effort is to establish a basic curriculum of project management courses for the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) that are inter-related and build on one another. A series of classes will be conducted that provide training in the established curriculum and issues professional development units (PDUs) that meet the continuing education requirements recognized by PMI. The timeframe for this effort will be approximately one year. The intention is that after completion of key project management classes, a participant will have the skills to successfully lead, monitor, and report on projects and major activities. 2.0 BACKGROUND Most of the work the Agency performs involves projects. According to industry surveys, 90% of projects do not meet time, cost, or quality targets. Technology is usually not the most critical factor in project failures. Most project failures are due to the lack of adequate project management methodologies. The focus of this effort is to provide comprehensive training via a series of inter-related courses to Agency personnel on well-established project management methodologies and techniques. The goal is to equip personnel with the tools, knowledge, and skills to be effective project managers. The Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) Project Management Office (PMO) is a service organization created for the specific purpose of supporting BBG’s projects. The Office of Personnel Training provides services that enable the Agency to carry out its mission by fostering the improvement of individual and group performance and encouraging the growth and enhancement of employee capabilities. A key part of the mission of the PMO is to provide leadership to project teams and facilitate the successful execution of all phases of agency projects through tools, techniques, expert advice, and education on the underlying theories and concepts of project management. In support of that mission, a major goal is to build project management professionalism among the BBG staff by training the organization’s project management teams as they learn and adopt project management best practices in their projects. This involves training BBG project managers in a full range of project management topics. Working together, the PM0 and the Office of Personnel Training seek to provide a wide range of project management training to enable Agency personnel to perform better project planning; use standardized project management processes, tools, and templates; and perform thorough project monitoring and reporting. One of the initial activities of the PMO was to develop project management templates and forms to facilitate the development of project estimates, project initiation, project plans, project schedules, risk management, issue management, change management, and project reporting. In 2010, several training sessions were conducted for key information Technology (IT) personnel that covered basic project management techniques and incorporated the use of the newly established project management templates and forms. The success of these training sessions verified the need for comprehensive project management training not only for selected IT personnel, but also for personnel throughout the Agency that lead projects and perform key project management functions. 3.0 AUDIENCE: The target audience for project management training includes Agency project leaders, team leaders, managers, supervisors, and others whose job includes the requirement for successfully managing projects.

Vendors interested in attending this event are requested to respond no later than 1300 hours (EST) on Tuesday, 7 August 2012. Due to the security restrictions associated with this site-visit, only a limited number of persons can attend. As such, the Government requests that only those small business vendors seriously considering bidding as the Prime contractor respond. At the close of this announcement on 3 August, the Government will evaluate the number of responses to determine the attendance restrictions. The Government will notify ONLY those vendors who responded to this announcement and who meet the criteria for participation (i.e. small business, prime contract bidders), and will provide further specifics regarding the schedule of events and site procedures. The current intent is to allow two (2) persons from each vendor to attend, however; this number may change in order to accommodate the level of interest. If there is a change in the number of allowable attendees, the Government reserves the right to enact further restrictions in order to accommodate the event limitations. To maintain operational security, each vendor e-mail response must identify at a minimum: 1) Company name 2) Cage Code 3) Name(s) and title(s) of person(s) attending Upon recieving this response the Government will send the 160th SOAR(A) Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) document. Imbedded in this document is a Simulation Facility Site Visit Form (Attachment 1 to the SOP document). The highlighted areas of this document must be filled out and returned in order to gain access to the facility. Each interested vendor MUST thoroughly review and comply with the requirements stipulated in this document. This form must be filled out and returned via e-mail as-soon-as-possible back to the PEO STRI POC and the appropriate 160th SOAR(A) POC identified at the bottom of the form. This site-visit represents the first of two phases for the SOFAST-E Pre-solicitation Conference. Phase II is tentatively set to be held in Orlando, FL at PEO STRI, shortly following Phase I. Specific dates, times and location information regarding Phase II will be provided at a later time. During that portion of the Conference, vendors will have the ability to request a one-on-one session with the Government to discuss specifics generated from this site-visit and the forthcoming SOFAST-E requirements documentation. At this time, it is the intent of the Government to release a draft Statement of Work (SOW) prior to the site-visit with a draft solicitation release prior to Phase II. 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.
