The USPTO has a continuing requirement for Infrastructure, Design, Engineering, Architecture, and Integration, (IDEAI-2) contractor(s) to provide independent, objective, and expert technical advice and assistance for ongoing and future information technology initiatives. This is a follow-on competition to Contract No. DOC50PAPT0801027, which is held by General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), DOC50PAPT0801026, which is held by Project Performance Corporation (PPC) and DOC50PAPT0801028 with ManTech MBI, Inc. (ManTech). The estimated release date for the solicitations is June 21, 2013.

The requirement is to provide System Planning, Secure System Design, Infrastructure Engineering, System Engineering, Accessibility Engineering, Enterprise Architecture, Data Architecture, Application Architecture, Security Architecture, Security Engineering, and System Development Life Cycle Support, design of infrastructure system components, and may serve as an unbiased third party in the review of other Government contractors' plans, performance, and products.

The NAICS code is: 541512, Computer Systems Design Services. The anticipated period of performance is a one year (1) base period with four (4) one-year options for renewal. It is anticipated that the contract will be a labor hour type contract with task ordering provisions.

The USPTO anticipates releasing two RFPs in support of this procurement; RFP DOC52PAPT1300014, which is set aside for small businesses only, and RFP DOC52PAPT1300015, which is full and open/unrestricted. The anticipated combined total annual level of effort for this requirement is 205,000 hours for the base period of performance and 205,000 hours for each of the four (4) one-year options. Allocated annual levels of effort for the small business set aside and the full and open RFPs are as noted below:

Under RFP DOC52PAPT1300014 (IDEAI-2 small business set aside), the USPTO expects to award one or more service contracts as a result of this competition. The combined total estimated number of hours for all contracts awarded under the small business set-aside requirement is 139,400 hours for the base period of performance and 139,400 hours for each of the four (4) one-year options.

Under RFP DOC52PAPT1300015 (IDEAI-2 full and open), the USPTO expects to award one or more performance-based service contracts as a result of this competition. The combined total estimated number of hours for all contracts awarded under the full and open requirement is 65,600 hours for the base period of performance and 65,600 hours for each of the four (4) one-year options.

In order to be considered for award, the Contractor must use an Earned Value Management System that is compliant with the guidelines in ANSI/EIA Standard 748. If the Contractor does not have an existing earned value system that is compliant with the guidelines in ANSI/EAI - 748, the Contractor shall use this non-compliant or non-validated system for an interim period, which will be negotiable between the Government and the Contractor. At the end of the agreed upon interim period, the Contractor shall be prepared to demonstrate to the CO that the EVMS complies with the ANSI/EIA Standard 748. Earned Value Management (EVM) shall be applicable to discrete task orders with a value greater than $1,000,000 and with a period of performance exceeding 90 days.

The Government has determined that this effort may result in actual or potential organizational conflicts of interest (OCI), or may provide one or more offerors with the potential to attain an unfair competitive advantage. The IDEAI-2 Contractor may also be required to serve as an unbiased third party in the review of other Government Contractors' plans, performances and products. The nature of the conflict and the limitation on future contracting will be included in specific task order statements of work. Prior to commencement of any task order, the Contractor agrees to submit to the Contracting Officer, either confirmation that no conflict of interest exists, or identify any actual, apparent, or potential conflict of interest the Contractor may have.

In addition, the Government has determined it to be in its best interest to impose the following solicitation restrictions:

1. Awardees, as prime contractors or as subcontractors under one RFP, shall not be eligible for award under the other RFP. No company is eligible to receive awards under both RFPs.

2. Cross teaming is not permitted. The prohibited cross-teaming condition exists when, under each RFP and resulting award, a prime contractor participates as a subcontractor or team member with another awardee, or when a subcontractor/team member subcontracts or teams with more than one awardee. The intent of this prohibition is to create distinct and independent teams that remain as such during the life of the resulting contracts.

QUESTIONS REGARDING THIS PROCUREMENT WILL NOT BE ENTERTAINED AT THIS TIME. Questions may be submitted following the release of the RFP, utilizing the procedures specified in the RFP.

Electronic copies: An electronic copy of the solicitation when released will be available on fbo.gov. This acquisition will be conducted using streamlined measures, to include oral presentations by offerors. Details will be contained in the solicitation.

The USPTO has a continuing requirement for Infrastructure, Design, Engineering, Architecture, and Integration, (IDEAI-2) contractor(s) to provide independent, objective, and expert technical advice and assistance for ongoing and future information technology initiatives.


This is a follow-on competition to Contract No. DOC50PAPT0801027, which is held by General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT), DOC50PAPT0801026, which is held by Project Performance Corporation (PPC) and DOC50PAPT0801028 with ManTech MBI, Inc. (ManTech).


This RFP is set aside for small business participation. The NAICS code is: 541512, Computer Systems Design Services with a small business standard of $25.5M.


The anticipated period of performance is a one year (1) base period with four (4) one-year options for renewal. It is anticipated that the contract will be a labor hour type contract with task ordering provisions.


The USPTO expects to award multiple performance-based service contracts as a result of this competition. The anticipated annual level of effort for this requirement is 139,400 hours total for the base period of performance and 139,400 hours for each of the four (4) one-year options.

In order to be considered for award, the Contractor must use an Earned Value Management System that is compliant with the guidelines in ANSI/EIA Standard 748. If the Contractor does not have an existing earned value system that is compliant with the guidelines in ANSI/EAI - 748, the Contractor shall use this non-compliant or non-validated system for an interim period, which will be negotiable between the Government and the Contractor. At the end of the agreed upon interim period, the Contractor shall be prepared to demonstrate to the CO that the EVMS complies with the ANSI/EIA Standard 748. Earned Value Management (EVM) shall be applicable to discrete task orders with a value greater than $1,000,000 and with a period of performance exceeding 90 days.


The Government has determined that due to conflicts of interest, companies who have been awarded System Development and Integration (SDI-NG) prime contracts are not eligible for award of an IDEAI-2 prime contract or subcontract. If your company has a current SDI-NG subcontract, your company is not automatically disqualified from participating in the IDEAI-2 procurement. However, it is your company's responsibility to disclose its prior work on SDI-NG and to submit an OCI mitigation plan if required.


Offerors may propose or be proposed under either the Small Business Set-aside (RFP DOC52PAPT1300014) or the Full and Open (RFP DOC52PAPT1300015) competition of the IDEAI-2 program in the role of a prime contractor or as a subcontractor, but not both. Therefore, during the life of the contract, Contractors who receive awards as a prime or as a subcontractor under RFP DOC52PAPT1300014 will be prohibited from participating on any task orders issued under contracts awarded under RFP DOC52PAPT1300015.


The USPTO intends to award multiple contracts as the result of this procurement. Therefore, due to the potential for decreased task order competition after award, cross-teaming is prohibited under this contract. The prohibited cross-teaming condition exists when a prime contractor participates as a subcontractor or team member with another prime contractor, or when a subcontractor/team member subcontracts or teams with more than one prime contractor. The intent of this prohibition is to create pure, distinct, separable teams that remain as such during the life of this contract.


Questions may be submitted following the procedures specified in the RFP.


This acquisition will be conducted using streamlined measures, to include oral presentations by offerors. Details are specified in the solicitation.

 The following clarification is provided regarding OCI and SDI-NG:

Companies with a current SDI-NG prime contract are disqualified from participating in the IDEAI-2 procurement.


Companies with a current SDI-NG subcontract are not automatically disqualified from participating in the IDEAI-2 procurement. However, companies are prohibited from having both an award (including a subcontract) under IDEAI-2 and an award (including a subcontract) under SDI-NG concurrently. Any SDI-NG subcontractor awarded a contract or subcontract under IDEAI-2 must give up its subcontract under SDI-NG prior to accepting the award under IDEAI-2. In addition, it is each company's responsibility to disclose in its proposal submittal, any prior work performed on SDI-NG and to submit an OCI mitigation plan if required. This applies to its proposed subcontractors as well. The company submitting a response to this solicitation as a prime must disclose whether its proposed subcontractors are current SDI-NG subcontractors.
