1. 100% Small Business Set-Aside Competition. Based on reviews of capability statements received and in coordination with the NAVAIR Office of Small Business Programs, the Contracting Officer has elected to pursue a Small Business Set-Aside under NAICS 334111. The PSC for this requirement is 1610; the NAICS is 334111 with a size standard of 1,250 employees. All eligible small business are encouraged to compete for contract award. In addition, please note that under a Small Business Set-Aside, the small business prime must perform at least 50% of the work itself in terms of cost of performance. Cost of performance includes direct labor costs, overhead that has only direct labor as its base, and the small business' general and administrative rate multiplied by the labor cost. The small business prime cannot utilize the cost performance of other small businesses it utilizes as subcontractors in calculating its performance to comply with FAR Clause 52.219-14. Joint ventures should also be aware that the cost of performance by both small business concerns is utilized in calculating its performance to comply with FAR 52.219-14. Since at least a portion of the resultant contract will be on a cost-type basis, the successful awardee will also be required to have a Government approved accounting system upon contract award. Any resulting contract is anticipated to have a security classification level of SECRET.
