SUBJECT: Solicitation No. W15P7T-11-R-H239; Pre-Solicitation Notice
This is a Pre-Solicitation notice for an upcoming Request for Proposal (RFP) and is for Full and Open Competition.
The US Army intends to acquire accessory items to support the military GPS receiver known as the AN/PSN-13A Defense Advanced GPS Receiver (DAGR) as used in both hand-held mode of operation and installed to a variety of host vehicle platforms. Seventeen (17) different accessories will be procured in varying quantities under this effort. These items are currently produced in support of ongoing Total Package Fielding and other distributions of DAGR systems. As requirements change, accessories items may be deleted or added. The timing of Call Orders and the quantities ordered on each Call Order will be based upon US Army mission requirements to support US fielding and installation of the DAGR military GPS receiver.
The US Army intends to solicit and award multiple (5) year Firm Fixed Price (FFP), Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) to meet the requirement. Each BPA awarded will include only those accessory items for which the awardee's proposal was deemed technically acceptable. Therefore, awardees may not have all 17 items solicited included in their BPAs. Offerors are not required to propose on all 17 items.
Award of BPAs will be made on the basis of technically acceptable/lowest price basis. To be considered for award of an item, offerors must receive a rating of 'acceptable' for the item in the technical factor. Offerors will be required to provide ten (10) actual production samples of each accessory item proposed for government qualification testing. The government will randomly select one test exhibit for each item proposed from the sample proposal test lot as provided. The test exhibit will be tested in accordance with the item specification. An item is deemed to be technically acceptable for inclusion in this BPA, if the test sample as selected by the Governement, from the offeror provided proposal test lot, passes all Government Qualification Testing as delineated within the PM GPS DAGR Accessory Test and Qualification Plan.
Offerors are cautioned that awards may not necessarily be made to the lowest price(s) offered. The government reserves the right to issue multiple BPA awards and to split awards for Call Orders under this solicitation. BPA Call Orders will be awarded based on the basis of price as well as factors deemed appropriate by the government.
