ALL QUESTIONS AND RESPONSES SHOULD BE SUBMITTED IN WRITING VIA EMAIL TO HAINESSG@STATE.GOV. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL ANY RESPONDENT CONTACT ANY OTHER DEPARTMENT OF STATE PERSONNEL REGARDING THIS NOTICE.

Responses should be concise, yet detailed, and include the Contractor's statement of interest, capabilities statement, and specific commercial of the shelf (COTS) products that the respondent could deploy to fulfill the requirement if a solicitation were to be issued. Responses should address the requirements in the attached Performance Specification, indicating what product (brand, model#, etc) the respondent suggests to meet such requirements.

Respondents are encouraged to include in their response any questions or additional information that they would require prior to submitting a quote, in the event that a solicitation is issued.
