Questions and Answers
Extended – January 13, 2014
“Solicitation No. BBG50-R-14-0001 is hereby amended to extend the response deadline to Monday, January 13, 2014. There will be no further questions accepted during this extension. All previous offerors that submitted a proposal is welcome to re-submit another proposal at your discretion and expense. In response to questions received from vendors on the subject RFQ, the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) is providing responses with the following information cited below:”
Question No. 1:
For the 10 minute demo segment, are you looking for something like a screen test for analyzing the talent’s on-air appearance, language skills and delivery? Or are you looking for an actual story line with the talent, again for analysis, but also including b-roll, graphics, etc. which would be more like 1/3 of an actual program?
Answer: The 10-minute demo segment’s content is at the Offeror’s professional and creative discretion. The on-air talent will be evaluated based on the evaluation criteria outlined in the Statement of Work (SOW).
Question No. 2:
To clarify the production details, are you expecting Farsi-speaking reporters on location in LA, NY, DC London and the Middle East, as news breaks? Or are you expecting to see B-Roll from those locations with the studio host describing the events? We understand there may be two hosts, perhaps a male and a female but the question is whether they (or one of them) is supposed to “on the scene” as events unfold, or simply reporting over the b-roll seen on the studio set’s monitors.
Answer: The show is to be shot on location on the West Coast of the United States (primarily Los Angeles), per the SOW. The Agency is expecting Farsi-speaking reporters on location in Los Angeles, CA. The hosts are expected to be in studio. The episode content is at the Offeror’s professional and creative discretion and that the Offeror shall comply with the SOW.
Question No. 3:
Do you expect to have remote live conversations during the studio shooting using systems such as Skype or Google Hangouts on the Air?
Answer: The episode content is at the Offeror’s professional and creative discretion.
Question No. 4:
Is there an incumbent for this work? Who is the incumbent for this work? Is there an incumbent vendor for previous series of this type that may have worked on politics, but will now simply switch to entertainment angle?
Answer: There is no incumbent for this requirement.
Question No. 5:
What is the expected target range of the contract’s value?
Answer: The contract’s value will be determined by the competitive range of the technically acceptable offerors.
Question No. 6:
What other companies have you worked with to support similar efforts in the past?
Answer: BBG has produced similar programming in-house. BBG is seeking for the Contractor to complete a turnkey requirement in accordance with the SOW.
Question No. 7:
Since the numbers of remotes, and the locations of where relevant events are unfolding, are both extremely variable, is there a way to suggest to prospective vendors a set number of locations and specific target cities we all should use for budgeting? Without a consistent number, and representative target locations, it will be extremely difficult to compare submitted budgets.
Answer: The show is to be shot on location on the West Coast of the United States (primarily Los Angeles, CA), per the SOW. The agency is only requiring Farsi-speaking reporters on location in Los Angeles, CA. The Offeror may, in its discretion, provide remotes and reporters at other locations at its discretion, but BBG is not requiring it. Offerors will not be evaluated on their ability to provide reporters in locations outside of Los Angeles, CA.
Question No. 8:
As an alternative, is there a way to structure the proposal so travel and lodging are managed under a separate contract?
Answer: No. BBG is seeking for the Contractor to complete a turnkey requirement in accordance with the SOW.
Question No. 9:
The contract describes 55 days for production of the first program (45 days for production + 10 days for approval) followed by 4 shows per month for the next three months. This totals 13.
1. Is this the plan for the second series of 13 programs?
2. If so, then should vendors plan for the same 55 days before the 14th show is delivered? This means there will be a two-month gap between show #13 and show #14 and this is repeated on each new 13 part series.
Answer: The second series of programming is in the option period that may or may not be exercised. The deliverable schedule will be determined by the COR prior to performance.
Question No. 10:
Has the BBG considered pulling talent from the existing roster of VOA talent pool?
Answer: Hiring talent for the show that is the subject of this procurement is the responsibility of the Offeror.
