Combined Synopsis/Solicitation
Added: Jul 30, 2012 12:27 pm
This was previously advertised under iesne120014.

The US Department of Education (ED) intends to award a firm-fixed-price Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to a single, successful offeror in FY2012. (No multiple IDIQ awards will be made.) It is anticipated that the resulting contract will be divided into the following tasks at the time of award:

• Task 1 - Server Operations Support
• Task 2 - IaaS Solution
• Task 3 - System Licenses (Task Order Requirement)
• Task 4 - Technical Writing (Task Order Requirement)

Work under Task 3-System Licenses and Task 4-Technical Writing will be issued as firm-fixed price task orders, as the need arises. The successful offeror shall not perform the following tasks unless ED issues a task order.
There will be a minimum of at least one task order for Task 3 and Task 4, but no more than 15 task orders and 5 task orders for Task 3 and Task 4 per year, respectively.

This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and written solicitation will not be issued.

The Department intends to solicit and negotiate a firm-fixed-price IDIQ procurement in accordance with FAR Part 12. This requirement is 100% set-aside for small business, under authority of FAR Part 52.219-6. The Small Business Size Standard for the NAICS code 518210 is $25 million. This is a Request for Proposal (RFP).
