The 22d Contracting Squadron (22 CONS) of the 22d Air Refueling Wing announces the projected solicitation for Custodial Services at McConnell AFB, Kansas 67221.
The 22d CONS intends to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a 100% competitive set-aside to SBA certified 8(a) concerns on or about 13 July 2016 for the acquisition of Custodial Services to be performed at McConnell AFB KS. The Government anticipates evaluation factors to be a subjective tradeoff between price & past performance with past performance being significantly more important than price. The Government intends to issue an award to a single SBA certified 8(a) concern under a Firm-Fixed-Price (FFP) contract on or about 1 Sep 2016. Services will be procured pursuant to the regulatory direction of FAR Part 12, Acquisition of Commercial Items. The expected award shall consist of one base period of performance (11 months, 1 November 2016 through 30 September 2017) and may include up to four optional periods of performance (each 1 year in duration, following the Federal Fiscal Year Calendar and running consecutively from the expiration of the base period of performance).

Facility cleaning includes restroom/locker room cleaning services and periodic cleaning services in order to meet the requirements of the PWS, the Service Summary (SS) and the Air Force Common Levels of Service as defined in the PWS.
