This announcement was originally posted under N66604-14-R-1120 on 13 May 2014. The announcement number is now N66604-14-R-1120rev1. No other changes have been made.

A Request for Proposal (RFP) is planned for the Rapid Technology Insertion (RTI) process, which will solicit technology solutions to enhance the successful completion of the primary Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) missions. The primary objective of the RFP will be the development of capabilities that can rapidly transition to Fleet introduction in less than 2 years into a Mission system, Mission Module, Mission Package, or onto an LCS. The Government anticipates soliciting on an unrestricted basis under NAICS code 541712. In order to allow Offerors to maximize an effective full and open competition and provide Offerors the best opportunity to submit a successful proposal upon release of the RFP, White Papers on Offeror project concepts are currently being requested. This will allow the Government to provide initial feedback on the Offeror's technology and solutions without the greater effort of Offeror preparation and Government evaluation of full proposals. Offerors are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this part of the RTI procurement process. Please see the attachment titled, "White Paper Synopsis" for further information.

The following attachments, referenced in White Paper Synopsis attachment, have also been provided:

a) Draft Section B
b) Draft Statement of Work (SOW)
c) SOW Addendum 1 - Rapid Technology Insertion Overview
d) SOW Addendum 2 - Topic Description
e) DD 1423 Checklist
