THIS SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE IS FOR MARKET RESEARCH AND PLANNING PURPOSES ONLY. IT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A SOLICITATION AND SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED AS A COMMITMENT BY THE GOVERNMENT TO AWARD A CONTRACT FROM RESPONSES TO THIS ANNOUNCEMENT. ANY INFORMATION SUBMITTED BY INTERESTED PARTIES IS STRICTLY VOLUNTARY AND NO MONETARY COMPENSATION WILL BE PROVIDED FOR RESPONSE PREPARATION.

INTRODUCTION


The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), Washington DC, is seeking information from potential sources able to provide engineering and technical services to support the U.S. Navy's Surface Ship Maintenance, Repair and Modernization (SSMRM) requirements. The results of this Sources Sought will be utilized to determine whether any Small Business set-aside opportunities exist. All Small Business set-aside categories will be considered. In accordance with FAR 52.219-14, Limitations on Subcontracting, Small Businesses concerns are reminded that in the performance of contracts awarded under small business set-aside procedures, at least 50 percent of the cost of contract performance incurred for personnel shall be expended for employees of the concern.


BACKGROUND


PMS 505, Fleet Introduction and Sustainment, is responsible for the life-cycle management of Littoral Combat Ships in the US Navy. In-service life cycle support of these ships comprises: integrated planning, programming, and execution of the maintenance; repair and modernization, and the provision of all technical and logistics support required to maintain, repair, modernize, and improve performance of these ships.


PMS 505 is evolving its surface ship modernization and maintenance/repair contracting strategy to implement a "family" of contracts that will maximize competition and the use of fixed price type contracts across the spectrum of surface ship availabilities. This strategy will leverage multiple types of contracts "right-sized" to best complete each type of ship availability, reflecting the specifics of the volume of work for each class and the industrial base in each port. This approach is intended to improve cost, schedule and quality while maintaining flexibility and responsiveness to the Fleet.


Specific engineering and technical requirements that are covered under this Sources Sought notice include, but are not limited to: General Requirements, Availability Planning Support, Availability Execution Support, Availability Assessment Execution, Integrated Logistic Support (ILS), Special Projects and Long Lead Time Material (LLTM). A draft Performance Work Statement (PWS) with specific details is provided as an attachment to this notice.


ACQUISITION STRATEGY


The Government is contemplating procuring this effort under one (1) Class applicable Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) Level of Effort (LOE) contract, with a contract duration of one (1) 12-month base year and four 12-month option years.


The contract size is estimated by total planned product (or depot level work item) development volume. This volume is defined by work items that typically support Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) type availability planning, and work items that support Continuous Maintenance (CM), Window Of Opportunity (WOO), and Emergent Availability planning.


Littoral Combat Ship Class Execution Planning (LCS 1 & 2 variants):


Fiscal Year CNO Availability
(Work Items) CM Planning(Work Items) Total Planning (Work Items)
2017 1000 3375 4375
2018 1000 4455 5455
2019 1000 5535 6535
2020 2000 6345 8345
2021 3000 7425 10425



NOTE: The above workload estimates do not include service life enhancing shipboard material assessments that may be executed in support of depot level work item development.

If the firm is not able to provide planning and engineering effort nationwide and/or conduct validation ship checks in all homeports for each assigned vessel, explain the reasons for this inability.
? Provide relevant examples of a quality system defining the capability and approach to ensure quality assurance for all required planning products and processes.

INDUSTRY DAY


LCS Execution Planning - Single Award IDIQ
Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) will hold an Industry Day conference on Tuesday, 06 December 2016 at Naval Base San Diego, CA in COMNAVSURFPAC - 3M and Career Counselor Office BLDG 3416. The event will begin at 0930 and conclude at 1530 PST. This time will allow for networking opportunities among industry teams. The conference will be hosted by Naval Sea Systems Command SEA 024 and PMS 505 for the purpose of discussing the Navy's plan for LCS sustainment execution planning.


The Industry Day will begin with a discussion and overview of the contemplated requirement and planned contract strategy. This contract is intended to be awarded as a single award IDIQ and will address all execution planning for maintenance and repair efforts for LCS Class ships homeported in and visiting Mayport, Florida and San Diego, California, CONUS and OCONUS for a 5 year period.

RSVP: NAVSEA requests that firms interested in attending the Industry Day submit company names and attendee lists no later than 1400 Eastern Time, 28 November 2016 via e-mail to Ms. Kelsey Blaskoski, SEA 024, Contract Specialist, kelsey.blaskoski@navy.mil. The subject line of the RSVP email shall be limited to: Industry Day RSVP from (Company Name). The body of the email shall include each attendee's name, Position/Title, email address, phone number, and indicate whether they have submitted the visit request to the SWRMC POC or taken the appropriate steps to access the base. Companies are asked to send no more than four (4) representatives as seating is limited. (See attached Industry Day Agenda).


The presentation slides will be made available to those who RSVP.


One-on-One Sessions: These sessions will only be held in person, in the MWR classroom next door to BLDG 3416 (the presentation location). The intent of these One-on-One sessions is to provide Industry a private, non-public forum to present the Government with comments, concerns and recommendations. Thus, the One-on-One sessions are designed to consist of mostly one-way communication (from the firm to the Government) as the Government does not intend to share contract strategy information outside of the larger and/or public forum. Companies requesting a One-on-One session must indicate such in their RSVP email. These sessions will be no longer than 20 minutes in length, may be attended by no more than 4 people per company, and will be scheduled on a first come first serve basis. The Government will inform attendees of their scheduled session time no later than 30 November 2016.


General Stipulations and Disclaimers: Recording of the event is not permitted. Other than the planned briefing materials referenced, the Government does not plan to provide additional information for review and comment prior to the Industry Day. This announcement is not a contract, request for proposal, a promise to contract, or a commitment of any kind on the part of the Government. NAVSEA does not assume liability for costs incurred by an attendee or for travel expenses or marketing efforts; therefore, attendee costs in response to this notice are not considered an allowable direct charge to the Government.


This Special Notice does not constitute a Request for Proposal (RFP) and is not to be construed as a commitment by the Government to issue a contract or order.
