The Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR), on behalf of the Program Executive Office (PEO) Command, Control, Computers, Communications, and Intelligence (C4I) and PMW 770, the Undersea Integration Program Office, intends to issue a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) for continued development, maintenance, and sustainment of the Common Submarine Radio Room (CSRR) Control and Management (C&M) software for submarine and other platforms.

The CSRR was developed as a replacement for the existing OHIO Class submarine Integrated Radio Room (IRR). CSRR has been implemented on the USS OHIO, USS VIRGINIA, USS SEAWOLF, and USS LOS ANGELES Class submarines. The CSRR integrates physical components from other Programs Of Record (PORs) (i.e. Automated Digital Network System (ADNS), Digital Modular Radio (DMR), Extremely High Frequency/Follow-On Terminal (EHF/FOT), Global Broadcast Service (GBS), Super High Frequency (SHF), Submarine Single Messaging System (SubSMS), and ancillary equipment) into a common architecture. The CSRR C&M software effectively manages these physical components to control, process and disseminate Command, Control Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) information to provide the submarine fleet with secure, reliable, and covert communications.

The technical approach to this effort is based on the concept of a CSRR that includes a common open systems architecture, common software, common technical documentation, and a single Software Support Activity (SSA). The common software configuration approach includes the structure of the code; the databases used to track requirements, software source files, baseline documentation, host equipments/processors, and the verification and validation process/ procedures. The contractor will be required to maintain and provide enhancements to the existing CSRR C&M software, the most recent version of which will be provided to the successful offeror at contract award.

Software code and specification documents associated with the CSRR C&M software will be provided to industry on a separate secure site limited to U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) contractors. The Government anticipates providing updated software code and documents periodically through the procurement process. It is the responsibility of interested offerors to monitor the information contained on the website to ensure they are accessing the most recent versions. To request access to the secure website, each company must sign and return the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) posted on the SPAWAR e-commerce site entitled, "Bidder's Repository NDA" and provide the e- mail address and phone number for up to two users to Patricia Ponce-Feliu patricia.poncefeliu@navy.mil. Each user is required to be a U.S. DoD contractor and have a valid DoD Common Access Card (CAC) or ECA issued PKI certificate to gain access to the website. If an interested company is a U.S. DoD contractor and does not have a valid DoD or ECA-issued PKI certificate, contact Mike Philbrook for further instruction. Once status as a US DoD contractor has been confirmed, the Government will provide instructions on how to access the secured site.

The Government anticipates issuing a Cost Plus Incentive Fee (CPIF) type contract. The period of performance will be five (5) years (one base year and four one-year options).

The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 541330- Engineering Services.

The estimated date for solicitation release is October 2012.
