Due to COVID-19 there has been a slight delay with the program. The Government will not be conducting an actual Site Visit and instead intends to host a Virtual Industry Day. For planning purposes, the following events are expected to occur within the next 30 days:

  • In 3-4 weeks the Government will host a virtual walkthrough of the acquisition and provide to interested TSC IV IDIQ MAC small business contract holders the available Government Furnished Information (GFI). The Government intends to try and answer question at the end of the Virtual Industry Day walkthrough. There will be a follow-up question and answer (Q&A) log posted shortly after the Virtual Industry Day. Specifics on the Virtual Industry Day are forthcoming.
  • In 2-3 weeks the Government will provide draft requirements documents and draft RFP to interested TSC IV small business contract holders.
  • Request for Proposal (RFP) end of July.

The purpose of this special notice is to inform industry that NAWCTSD intends to hold a Virtual Industry Day on Wednesday, 8 July 2020. The Virtual Industry Day will be used as an opportunity for NAWCTSD to express its goals, schedule and solicit feedback about the above procurement. NAWCTSD is still in the process of assembling the Government Furnished Information (GFI) for this effort. All pertinent GFI will be provided to Industry as soon as they become available.

It is requested that all TSC IV small business contractors who are interested in attending the Virtual Industry Day submit a request to the above Contract Specialist via email, with the Procuring Contracting Officer (PCO) copied. Interested parties are encouraged to include any questions regarding the MBT modification (to be included in the same email).

  1. The Government will provide interested contractors a Generated Meeting invite. Team members are allowed to join the call. It is requested that the contractor limit their dial in to no more than 6. Your request should include the names, role, and organization of all planned attendees.
  2. The Government will provide a copy of the Industry Day slides, along with a draft Statement of Work (SOW) and Specifications (PRFs) via DoD Safe. In order to receive this information and any future GFI, the attached NDA must be completed and provided to the Government. Please note these documents and the information within the brief is draft and may change.
  3. Instructions regarding Questions and Answers (Q&As) are in the brief.

Contractors unable to attend the Virtual Industry Day will not be excluded from competing for this effort. Q&As will be posted to beta.SAM.gov as soon as possible after the conclusion of the actual event.

This Industry Day and the subsequent GFI, may be the only information that is available to interested TSC IV small business contractors. The Government is still assessing if contractors will be able to visit the LCS Training Facility (LTF) to see an example of the trainer. However, the complexities of COVID-19 may prevent this. Any specifics regarding this will be addressed during the Industry Day. If the site visit is allowed, it will strictly be a quick tour of the devices, with no accompanying brief.

THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT INTEND TO AWARD A CONTRACT ON THE BASIS OF THIS NOTICE. THIS NOTICE IS FOR PLANNING PURPOSES ONLY AND SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED AS AN OBLIGATION TO ACQUIRE ANY PRODUCTS OR SERVICES.
