Executive Summary for Request for Proposal (RFP) FA8629-12-R-2400, Combat Rescue Helicopter (CRH) Program:

1. The Government invites your company to submit a proposal in response to the subject RFP. This program will replace the USAF aging HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter fleet with new air vehicles, training systems, and product support as required for the Personnel Recovery (PR) mission. The requirement is for 112 new air vehicles (most probable quantity); however, the RFP has been structured to handle fluctuations of quantities.

2. The CRH system acquisition (air vehicles, training systems, and product support) will use a single Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 15 contract with a planned award in the fourth quarter of FY13. If all options are exercised, the period of performance will span approximately 14 years and will include the development, integration, production, and initial sustainment of the entire CRH system. The contract will be Fixed-Price Incentive Firm (FPIF) for Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) and FPIF options for Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP). Full Rate Production (FRP) options will be Firm Fixed-Price (FFP). A small portion of the contract will be a combination of FFP and Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) in order to cover "over and above" repairs and studies and analyses. A total of nine air vehicles will be procured during EMD, 18 air vehicles in LRIP, and the remaining quantity (85) will be procured during FRP assuming all options are exercised at the most probable quantity.

3. The competitively awarded CRH contract will incentivize you to reduce costs and share in the savings through the FPIF contract during EMD and LRIP. The FPIF arrangement includes a mandatory profit at target cost of 11% for a cost incentive with a mandatory ceiling percentage of 120% and a mandatory 50/50 share ratio. In addition, 1% of target cost has been set aside for schedule performance incentive.
