N00024-12-R-5320 Pre-solicitation Questions and Answers

Q1. Would the MK 41 PMO be willing to hear a brief on an optional approach for performance based requirements to allow greater competition and allow more industrial participation in the bid?

A1. The government intends to conduct a build to print competition.

Q2. At the MK 41 VLS Launcher Production Industry Day, it was stated that a ‘subcontractor limitation’ clause would be included in the forthcoming MK 41 Launcher Solicitation N00024-12-R-5320.
