Notice Type:   Special Notice/DRAFT RFP

Classification Code:  R - Professional, administrative, and management support services

NAICS Code:   541 - Professional, Scientific, and Technical Service

                     541930 - Translation and Interpretation Services


The Purpose of this DRAFT RFP is for USSOCOM to obtain input from industry experts in regards to  foreign language interpretation, transcription, reporting, and translation services (NAICS Code 541930) in support of various units worldwide.

The DRAFT RFP and  applicable documents are available via Explicit Access.  To gain Explicit Access to this information, Contractor Personnel must be categorized within FBO with the proper NAICS Code for this requirement. This precaution has been established to limit the dissemination of sensitive unclassified information. To gain access to all of the explicit access documents (with the exception of the CLASSIFIED documents), please request via this FBO posting.

To gain Restricted Access to the CLASSIFIED documents, Contractor Personnel must be approved by DSS (and confirmed by USSOCOM) to store CLASSIFIED material up to the SECRET Level. All interested vendors shall submit DSS documentation that approves the storage of CLASSIFIED material (to include ship-to address)and the individual(s) requesting such material shall have current/valid Security Clearances (documentation needs to be provided as well). Providing complete packages/copies of all documentation is required. Incomplete packages, pending, or in-process documentation/clearances will NOT be accepted in part or full. ALL interested Offerors shall have this in place as of the posting date of the  official RFP date, which is yet to be determined. Under no circumstance will interested Prime Contractor Offerors be able to utilize a potential Sub-Contractor's Classified Storage capability as proof of classified storage capability.

USSOCOM will not provide any sponsorship for Security Clearances to enable access the CLASSIFIED portion of this requirement. A prerequisite to this requirement is that all interested vendors that wish to propose for the Prime Contractor role shall already have DSS approved CLASSIFIED Storage Capability and Individual Security Clearances. Upon successful confirmation of clearances and storage capability, USSOCOM will mail all CLASSIFIED documents to the approved physical ship-to address location of the interested vendor.

An Industry Day will be scheduled  in early November 2012.  The location and date will be provided to vendors upon confirmation by USSOCOM that the interested vendor has the prerequisite DSS approved Classified Storage Capability and Security Clearance(s). The Government reserves the right at anytime prior to Industry Day to limit the number of individuals attending based on capacity issues. Only companies that are granted RESTRICTED Access to the classified attachments will be able to attend.

**Questions regarding this DRAFT RFP must be emailed (in writing) and submitted to the Contracting Officer(addresses below). Oral requests (e.g. phone call) for information will be re-directed to provide email correspondence, for documentation purposes.**

Only unclassified questions may be transmitted.  If the prospective vendor has questions of a clasffied nature, please contact Elizabeth Holland for secure method of transmittal
