The B61-12 is a highly specialized component of the Life Extension Program Project Controls System. Under current contract FA2103-13-C-0006, which ends November 2015, Boeing accepted a requirement with the USAF to modernize the B61 free-fall ballistic munition by designing a new tail kit. In producing this modified B61, the Government also funded the creation of consumable castings in order to manufacture models for testing purposes. The Government is able to take the data and give it to another contractor to produce the models in order to compete this requirement. If this is done, the Government would have to fund the creation of castings to enable that contractor to manufacture models, which would result in a duplication of cost to the Government. The replication of the exact specifications of the B61-12 models is essential to the Government. Boeing is the only company with castings for these models already created to the exact specifications of the B61-12. At this time these models are available from no other source without resulting in a substantial duplication of cost to the United States which would not be recovered through competition. The proposed contract action is for a purchase order for which the Air Force intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of 10 USC 2304(c)(1) as implemented by FAR 6.302-1(a)(2). This notice of intent is NOT a request for competitive proposals. Requests for copies of a solicitation in response to this notice will not be honored or acknowledged. Interested parties may identify their interest and capability by responding to this requirement via email in Microsoft Word format in 3-5 pages to Jennifer Wilterdink, Contracting Officer, jennifer.wilterdink@us.af.mil, Subject Line: Response to Special Notice B6112NOI081715 no later than 15 days after the posting of this notice. All information submitted should support the offeror's capability to provide the assets required, addressing the offeror's access to the data developed by Boeing, and shall be furnished at no cost or obligation to the Government. Verbal responses are not acceptable and will not be considered. All responses received by the due date will be considered by the Government. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed contract based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. For specific questions, please contact the Contracting Officer, Jennifer Wilterdink, at jennifer.wilterdink@us.af.mil or by telephone at 505-846-5705. Contracting Office Address: AFNWC/PZIE; 8500 Gibson Blvd SE; Bldg 20202, Rm 219; Kirtland AFB NM 87117 Place of Delivery: Kirtland AFB NM Primary Point of Contact: Jennifer Wilterdink, Contracting Officer, 505-846-5705 or jennifer.wilterdink@us.af.mil

This effort has become necessary to continue the requirement and provide mission critical services while the Center is in the process of transitioning the requirement to a competitively awarded contract in December of 2015. The Government anticipates a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract. A description of the current services provided by the incumbent are described below: AFNWC/NDS, Air Delivered Capabilities, Nuclear Systems Integration Division is the primary technical and programmatic office for the coordination of nuclear weapon activities between the Air Force (AF) and the National Nuclear Security Administration-Department of Energy (NNSA-DOE). In addition to being responsible for the sustainment of current AF nuclear weapons, they are also responsible for leading life extension programs (LEPs) for the full spectrum of weapons under their purview. LEPs generally follow the 6.X process for nuclear weapon refurbishment but may also be subject to the rules of the DOD 5000 series acquisitions guidelines for some specific programs. Because of the requirements imposed by both of these processes, along with the daily requirements of sustainment, AFNWC/NDS produces hundreds of technical reports, technical briefings, and technical documents with both classified and unclassified information that are critical to the successful operation of the AF nuclear enterprise each year. The Air Force will conduct a Materiel Solution Analysis (MSA) for the Long Range Standoff (LRSO) capability/system leading up to Milestone A (MS-A). This analysis will be in concert with NNSA, USSTRATCOM, and the other LRSO acquisition stakeholders. This analysis includes LRSO Project Officers Group (POG) activities to provide warhead concept refinement and requirements maturation. It also includes LRSO Weapon System Team (WST) activities to refine and mature concepts and requirements for the overall LRSO weapon system. Activities include integration of LRSO Working Group deliverables into presentations for senior leadership, coordination/facilitation of pre-cursory engagements that will lead to MS-A Defense Acquisition Board (DAB), as well as liaison activities between the acquiring command and the Air Staff and OSD. This integration effort will require certain contracting personnel to reside in Washington, D.C. National Capital Region (NCR) to expedite facilitation/coordination of MS-A activities in order to produce the specific step-by-step statutory and regulatory requirements per DoD Instruction 5000 series, to assist in the program proceeding to the next phase of the acquisition process. The MSA activities support development of a future standoff weapon approach suggested in the Airborne Strategic Deterrent (ABSD) Capabilities-Based Assessment (CBA). The LRSO program is required to fill relevant capability gaps identified in the ABSD Initial Capabilities Document (ICD). The LRSO Materiel Solution Analysis Milestone A preparation study activities will facilitate completion of the LRSO AoA, including ‘briefing out' the AoA findings and iterating final refinement of the AoA Report. The MSA will build upon the data and findings developed and reported by the LRSO AoA. The study activities will support Nuclear Weapons Council (NWC) decisions to proceed with the appropriate phases of the LRSO warhead development as well as the DAB MS-A review of the LRSO materiel approach. The contractor requires a Top Secret and associated facility clearances, a classified and closed work area with classified computers, and the required equipment for a SIPRNet connection at the contractor's facilities. The current position of the AFNWC is to issue a Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) bridge contract to Exelis Inc. to continue the highly specialized services of Task Order 20 and Task Order 31 under the current CBRNE contract FA9453-09-D-0380 to provide for uninterrupted mission-critical services until the new LPO Support contract, currently in source selection, can be awarded on or about December 2015. The period of performance for the bridge contract is anticipated to be a 3 month base period with three 1 month options, beginning 29 September 2015 to 28 March 2016. The proposed contract action is for services for which the Air Force intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of 10 USC 2304(c)(1) as implemented by FAR 6.302-1(a)(2)(iii)(B). This acquisition is for a three (3) month bridge contract with three (3) one-month options, until a competitive contract can be awarded. This notice of intent is NOT a request for competitive proposals. Requests for copies of a solicitation in response to this notice will not be honored or acknowledged.

To attain this goal it will be necessary for the contractor management personnel to communicate to the workers an expectation of zero injuries; that it is no longer acceptable to take chances; that shortcuts taken because of laziness or even while trying to do an efficient job are no longer welcomed; that praise for shortcuts or chance-taking will not exist. It is imperative that contractor management clearly sets forth the expectation for zero injuries so that the workers can begin to believe that the company is truly serious about safety. From the standpoint of worker psychology, zero is the only supportable goal. In attaining zero-injury performance, there is no substitute for the concept of setting and communicating safety performance expectations to the workers.
