The Missile Defense Agency (MDA) releases the attached Request for Proposal (RFP) pursuant a competitive acquisition for the Development and Sustainment Contract (DSC) inclusive of the future development; fielding; test; systems engineering, integration and configuration management; equipment manufacturing and refurbishment; training; and operations and sustainment support for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system and associated support facilities. For additional information regarding this RFP, reference the attached DSC Executive Summary Letter located in the Files Section herein.

The GMD Weapon System/element is a complex system of systems consisting of hardware and software, including Ground Based Interceptors (GBIs), GBI Fire Control Nodes, GBI silos, and related flight and ground test equipment; Launch Site Components, Command Launch Equipment, and related Peculiar Support Equipment; the In-Flight Interceptor Communications System (IFICS) Data Terminal (IDT); training equipment and tactical/non-tactical communications equipment and support facilities.

The anticipated period of performance (PoP) for this acquisition is 7 years with provisions for multiple cost reimbursement type pricing arrangements including; Cost-Plus-Award-Fee (CPAF), Cost-Plus-Incentive-Fee (CPIF), Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee (CPFF) and Fixed-Price-Incentive-Fee (FPIF), as well as term (i.e. LOE) and completion type contract. The proposal instructions and evaluation factors for award are included in the solicitation document and are located in the Files Section herein.

This effort was previously announced as RFP #HQ0147-09-R-0007. The potential scope described in the previous announcement was revised to include significant requirements beyond GMD operations and logistics support, and the RFP number was changed to HQ0147-10-R-0016.

Throughout the acquisition phase, the Government has made available technical data and other information through the GMD technical data/ bidders' library. The bidders' library contains classified and export-controlled data, therefore, access is restricted to personnel who have been cleared by MDA contracting and security officials. Please note that those that have not been previously cleared for the GMD bidders' library must be cleared to receive the technical data and other documentation. The procedure for receipt and review of requests for library access is to obtain and sign a GMD Bidders' Library Access Agreement. This form may be obtained by contacting Mr. Tim Cole at timothy.cole@mda.mil. The bidders' library is available at https://dcp.mda.mil/MDDCCatalog/index.aspx.

The MDA Acquisition Web site located at http://www.mda.mil/business/acquisition_center.html, which has been updated throughout the competitive process, is available to the public and may assist in preparation of responses.

The Government does not intend to limit either the number or types of teaming arrangements entered into by the potential offerors, i.e., any given contractor could propose as a prime contractor and/or participate as a subcontractor on one or more other proposing teams. Further, the government does not intend to impose any restrictions on team membership after award, except as may be necessary to prevent organizational conflicts of interest between this requirement and advisory and assistance contracts in support of the GMD Joint Program Office. However, for the purposes of this competition, the prime offeror(s) and its subcontractors/suppliers must be U.S. firms/businesses, not foreign owned, controlled, or influenced.

As stated throughout this competitive process, the Government intends to award, on a best value basis, a contract based on the quality and the content of the proposals received. Offeror's should formulate proposals using, to the greatest extent practicable, any technical data, computer software or computer software documentation (as defined in DFARS 252.227-7013 and DFARS 252.227-7014) generated in the performance of a Government contract. Therefore, all offerors are given express Government permission to use technical data or computer software or computer software documentation for which the Government has a royalty free, world-wide, nonexclusive, irrevocable unlimited or government purpose license as established and defined in DFARS 252.227-7013 and DFARS 252.227-7014. Such clauses as those referenced herein can be found in the existing GMD contracts HQ0006-01-C-0001, HQ0147-09-C-0007 and HQ0147-09-C-0008. Determinations as to the Government's rights for any technical data or computer software generated in the performance of the referenced contracts or any subcontracts should be made in reliance upon contractor or subcontractor records established in accordance with paragraphs (g) of DFARS 252.227-7013 and 252.227-7014. Additionally, offerors are directed to the provisions of paragraph (k) of DFARS 252.227-7013 and 252.227-7014 for matters concerning existing subcontractors, under the referenced contracts. For the purpose of existing DD 254 conditions the term "need to know" encompasses participation under this competition. The proposal must encompass and be compliant with stated requirements. Open teaming between offerors and the incumbent OEMs is encouraged; see FAR 3.301 (Reports of Suspected Antitrust Violations).

Industry is reminded that interested offerors may register at http://www.fedbizopps.gov to receive email notification when additional information, additional solicitation documentation, and any/or amendments or future documents regarding this acquisition are issued and available for downloading. MDA will not directly send offerors the solicitation documents or any amendments. It is the interested offerors' responsibility to periodically check this website for updates.

Release of this RFP is NOT a commitment by the Government to award a contract and the Government is NOT responsible for any costs incurred as a result of this release.
