THIS IS A COMBINED SYNOPSIS/SOLICIATION NOTICE ONLY:    

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition (OTIA) has a requirement for Integrated Fixed Tower (IFT) systems and hereby issues this solicitation on a full and open competition basis to procure fully-integrated, non-developmental IFT systems that encompass open system architecture to be used by United States Border Patrol (USBP) Agents. 


The IFT procurement is one element of a broader CBP strategy to rapidly acquire non-developmental (and ideally commercially available) systems to support border protection efforts.  The technology combines with other resources and capabilities, notably personnel, infrastructure, and intelligence, to improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of our border protection efforts.


The IFT systems will assist agents in detecting, tracking, identifying and classifying items of interest along our Nation's borders through a series of fixed sensor towers and command and control center equipment that displays information on a common operating picture (COP).  The procurement will consist of surveillance equipment (e.g., ground surveillance radars and surveillance cameras) mounted on fixed (i.e., stationary) tower(s); all necessary power generation and communications equipment to support these tower sites; and command and control (C2) center equipment (including one or more operator workstations) capable of displaying information received from surveillance towers on a COP.


COMPETITION TYPE:


Full and Open Competition based upon Best Value with a base and option quantities/periods.


 DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUIREMENT:


The U.S. Customs and Border Protection intends to award a Firm Fixed Price (FFP), single award contract.  The contractor shall build, install, and test the IFT system in each Border Patrol Station (BPS) area of responsibility (AoR) identified in the contract.  The contractor shall build, install, and test the IFT system in each BPS AoR no later than 12 months after contract award (for the base quantity) and no later than 12 months after exercising an Option for all AoR Option quantities.  Following Government acceptance of the system within each BPS AoR and the exercise of a Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) option, CLS will commence.  As part of CLS, the contractor shall maintain the IFT system in each BPS AoR identified in the contract line item options, when these options are exercised under the IFT contract. 


Initial deployment of the IFT System will be in the BPS Nogales AoR.  Five additional AoRs may be deployed, for a maximum of six BPS AoRs within the State of Arizona. The period of performance of this contract, if all options are exercised including the sustainment effort, is anticipated to be eight years and six months after contract award.
