R--EXECUTIVE COACHING-FACILITATING AND CONSULTING SERVICES

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Ames Research Center | Published September 1, 2015  -  Deadline September 10, 2015
cpvs

The Human Resources Division at NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) has a requirement for individual consulting, facilitating and coaching services at the executive level to promote leadership development, provide conflict resolution, assist in strategic planning, and improve team dynamics for one (1) year with four (4) Option Periods. This notice is a combined synopsis/solicitation #NNA15551244Q-AGS for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation, which is issued as a Request for Quotation (RFQ); quotes are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. 52.212-2 - Evaluation -- Commercial Items (Oct 2014) (a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: Factor 1. Technical capability Factor 2. Price Technical capability is equal to price. (b) Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s). (c) A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offers specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award. The contractor shall provide coaching services that require: an up-front assessment of the executives/leaders/teams strengths and gaps; a program crafted to address the gaps and leverage the strengths; and a series of one-on-one (or group) coaching sessions to implement the program; an evaluation at the conclusion of the engagement. A typical coaching engagement would cover 12 sessions; it could be extended with the Ames Coaching Program Managers concurrence. The OD services would operate somewhat similarly. The OD consultant would meet with the client, assess the issues that the client is identifying as problematic, make further assessment by gathering independent findings through interviews, focus groups, surveys, etc. Design a recommended course of action, modify it with client input, and ultimately execute the plan of action. Again, an evaluation at the conclusion is required. For team facilitation, Ames would expect an experienced facilitator of teams to spend time in the organization to determine what course of action would be helpful to facilitating the teams effectiveness. As for leadership, Ames may periodically need to bring in the vendor to conduct small workshops in support of leadership development. The vendor must become familiar with the NASA leadership model. Factor 1 Minimum requirements to be determined Technically Capable: - Vendor must possess more than 3 years of experience and must be able demonstrate positive outcomes in executive, leadership, organizational and/or team coaching. - Coaches must be certified by the International Coaching Federation (ICF). - Ames requires that the vendor have at least one New Ventures West trained coach from which to select. - Vendor must demonstrate the expertise and specialization areas of individual coaches by providing bios of each individual coach for review by Code HR staff. - Must be able to coach in face-to-face meetings. Phone coaching is acceptable, but face-to-face is required for at least 40% of the coaching meetings. - The vendor must be able to start the work engagement no later than September 30, 2015. Also NASA ARC requires the following specific requirements: 1) Assessment Conduct face-to-face intake sessions to establish a relationship with the client. Identify the clients self-assessment of the behaviors/relationships that need to be modified or developed. Apply professional analysis based on the conversation, the clients input/insights and available assessment and feedback tools (e.g. EVS (employee viewpoint survey) data, 360 feedback, employee feedback, Enneagram, etc). Determine with client if additional information needs to be gathered from key stakeholders to conduct a thorough needs assessment. 2) Provide feedback from this assessment to the client verbally and in written format. 3) Based on the feedback, document a plan to achieve the desired outcomes for the coaching, organizational effectiveness work, team facilitation, and/or leadership. 4) Design a tailored program to leverage strengths and to address areas that need further development. 5) Coaching sessions of 1 to 1.5 hours will occur every 1 - 3 weeks. 6) Organizational effectiveness workshops, leadership development, and team facilitation will be arranged between the client and the consultant. 7) All of the above is to be accomplished using frequent (at each of the above steps) communication and partnership with the Ames Workforce Development manager sponsoring the engagement. 8) Evaluation is required by the appropriate Workforce Development manager at the 3 month point, or the anticipated half-way point of the engagement. With coaching, the evaluation should be high level so as not to breach the client/coach confidentiality. Period of Performance: Base Year SEP 25, 2015 - SEP 24, 2016 Option 1 SEP 25, 2016 - SEP 24, 2017 Option 2 SEP 25, 2017 - SEP 24, 2018 Option 3 SEP 25, 2018 - SEP 24, 2019 Option 4 SEP 25, 2019 - SEP 24, 2020 Deliverables The contractor shall provide the following: Coaching (105 Hours) Consulting & Workshop Services (40 Hours) Team Facilitation (16 Hours) Individual assessments of leadership effectiveness Documentation summarizing each session All data obtained is the property of NASA.
