The Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) are continuing the process of modernizing and upgrading its television and radio broadcast and production systems in its Washington DC headquarters. The BBG requires support from contractors specializing in all aspects of television and radio broadcast systems, studio set design and fabrication and lighting design; and acquisition, installation and technical integration services. The majority of tasks assigned will be less than one million dollars. These tasks may be independent, or may augment other major projects in progress. It is anticipated that a significant amount of the work will be performed in the Washington, DC metro area; however the agency has bureaus within the continental United States that may need similar services.OBJECTIVE (a) The objective of this solicitation is to obtain broadcast technical services and equipment on an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) - Task Order / Delivery Order (TO/DO) basis from qualified small business contractors based in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Although the primary supplies (e.g., equipment, sets, and systems) and services (engineering, design, training, logistics, or acquisition) required under this contract relate to television and radio production and on-air broadcasting, it must be noted that various portions of VOA's television and radio facilities consist of state-of-the-art, information technology (IT) based integrated digital broadcast systems. (b) This Statement of Work (SOW) describes the types of task areas that will be referenced within each individual TO/DO. Each TO/DO will have its own unique SOW that will specify the work to be performed, the location or locations of the work, the schedule for completion of work, the deliverables, the acceptance criteria, and any special requirements related to that specific TO/DO. Each TO/DO will be competitively bid among the firms awarded this IDIQ Contract, and the Government will issue a Firm-Fixed-Price TO/DO prior to commencement of work on that TO/DO.
