Request for Information (RFI)
Sources Sought, Requirement, Comments & Industry Day Announcement
RFI Overview: The Army Contracting Command -Redstone (ACC-Redstone) is seeking information concerning the interest and availability of capable contractors to provide contract support to the Aviation and Missile Command's (AMCOM) Aviation Maintenance Enterprise. The Aviation Maintenance Enterprise efforts covered by this RFI will include the following:
AMCOM Logistics Support Facility Management Activity (LSFMA) contract: The LSFMA is a Government office that provides contractual support to Army Aviation programs and activities for non-recurring and recurring modification efforts on Aviation platforms and support equipment. The AMCOM LSFMA support contract requires the successful offerors to provide the engineering, logistics, maintenance support, training, and associated support for these modification efforts. Please see the DRAFT Statement of Work for a list of covered work.

Contract Background and Anticipated Period of Performance: It is anticipated that the LSFMA contract will be an indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract. It is also anticipated that this requirement will be a multiple award contract. The IDIQ contract will bind the successful contractors to labor rates and other factors for pricing individual orders and any modifications to orders. Individual orders under the multiple award concept will be competed as required. It is anticipated the contract will include a five year ordering period. Orders may be issued as either Firm Fixed Price or Cost Plus Fixed Fee. The current LSFMA contract requires the contractor to have a facility within commuting distance of Redstone Arsenal. This is defined as within 60 miles of Redstone Arsenal. It is anticipated that the multiple award follow on contract will include this requirement. The LSF has issued approximately 70 orders a year and the proximity requirement significantly reduces travel cost to the Government. DCMA is currently staffed in the area to support contract administration services for the LSF. Prospective Offerors should address their ability to comply with the proximity requirement. These contracts will include DFARS 252.228-7001 Ground and Flight Risk clause. Awarded contract will support all PEO Aviation standard and non-standard platforms (excluding MI 17) as required. For information purposes, the current LSFMA contract was competed as a small business set aside. The applicable NAICS code for the LSFMA effort is 336411 - Aircraft Manufacturing. The size standard is 1500 employees.
Capable Contractor Interest: The ACC - Redstone would like to identify businesses that have experience in all or a part of the requirements described above.
Note: Job descriptions from the previous contracts associated with these efforts are included as an attachment. These job descriptions are not final but are meant to provide potential offerors a representative sample of the personnel and skills required to perform the required effort. It is expected that these job descriptions and the associated qualifications will be updated prior to release of any RFP. Also included in the information are attachments associated with the facility and equipment requirements of the contract. It is expected that the minimum requirement for equipment will include 12 aircraft in the facility at one time. The minimum facility requirements will be the ability to support 6 aircraft in hangar space and 6 aircraft in production space at one time. The LSFMA attachment includes the minimum equipment that a successful offeror will require to perform the orders issued under the resulting contract. The LSFMA equipment is expected to be provided by the contractor as capital equipment. The individual orders will contain the specific equipment to be provided as Government Furnished Equipment/Government Furnished Property. The contractor will be expected to maintain and calibrate the equipment while it is in their possession and to provide any other equipment necessary to perform the work.
This RFI shall not be construed as a formal solicitation or an obligation on the part of the Government to acquire any products or services. Any information provided to the Government is strictly voluntary and at no cost to the Government. Any formal solicitation(s) will be announced separately. It is anticipated that a draft RFP may be released in mid to late September 2011 with a final solicitation (Request for Proposal) issued in the fourth quarter of CY 2011; however, these dates are estimates and subject to change without notice. The Government is anticipating awarding a multiple IDIQ contract for the LSFMA effort. Source Selection will be conducted per applicable guidance of FAR part 15, DFARS part 215 and AFARs part 5115 (to include Army Source Selection Manual, AFARs appendix AA, February 2009 or current date) as well as Army Contracting Command and AMCOM directives. Current Government source selection guidance at time of evaluation will be implemented. Contacts to Government personnel by potential offerors regarding this RFI subject are restricted and must proceed through the Contracting Officer POC. The Contracting Officer, Ms. Charlotte Curry, has posted all current information regarding this requirement on the FedBizOpps website under solicitation number W58RGZ-11-R-0231(LSFMA). Information includes the, a DRAFT Statement of Work, Labor Descriptions, Equipment and Tooling Minimum Requirements, Industry Day Questions and Answers Document as distributed 26 May 2011, and revised 6 September 2011, and Industry Day Attendee Document.
Small Business Set-Aside Determination: It is anticipated that the current LSF program will continue as a Small Business Set Aside. However, the Government reserves the right to decide whether or not a Small Business set -aside, full or partial, is appropriate based on responses to this notice. In order for the Government to make a Small Business set-aside determination, it is emphasized that Small Business concerns provide sufficient written information to indicate their capability to successfully perform and manage all requirements of the magnitude described in the Draft SOW.
