The Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support Medical Supply Chain (DLA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs National Acquisition Center (VA NAC) are responsible for the acquisition and management of radiology and imaging systems, subsystems, and components along with maintenance services, training, and incidental services related to the supply of the equipment for customers located in the United States and worldwide. The joint DLA/VA NAC Radiology and Imaging Systems Program was established to support the requirements of both agencies. The objective of this solicitation is to establish the second generation of the joint program with multiple-award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contracts utilizing FAR 16.505 (b) multiple-award ordering procedures. DLA and the VA NAC will divide up all submitted proposals for evaluation, award and administration. Each agency will then be able to issue orders against any contract, regardless of which agency administers the particular contract. Based on joint historical sales data, with approximate annual sales of $650 million, the total program estimate for the next 10 years is $6.5 billion. This solicitation will provide for the supply of radiology and imaging systems, subsystems, and components along with maintenance services, training, and incidental services related to the purchase of the equipment. Radiology and imaging systems include but are not limited to computed tomography (CT) scanners, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems, radiographic systems (X-Ray), nuclear medicine, ultrasounds, computed radiography, magnetoencephalography, Positron Emission Tomography (PET)-CT, PET-MR scanners, cyclotrons, angiography, cardiac catheterization, mammography systems, upgrades, repair parts, software, and accessories. Incidental services are standard commercial services that the contractor may be asked to perform in connection with supplying items under the scope of the contract. What constitutes an incidental service is fact specific and will be a function of factors such as type of service, amount charged for the service, dollar amount charged for the supplies, existence of a close relationship between the service and the item supplied, and the time required to perform the service. Maintenance, calibration or repair of certain equipment that meets all the conditions set forth in FAR 22.1003-4 (c)(1)(ii.) are allowable as long as the vendor provides full certification under FAR 52.222-48 - Exemption from Application of the Service Contract Labor Standards to Contracts for Maintenance, Calibration, or Repair of Certain Equipment - Certification (MAY 2014). Third party multivendor maintenance is allowable if all conditions at FAR 22.1003-4 (c)(1)(ii.) are applicable. The Government may issue delivery orders to lease equipment under the IDIQ contracts awarded from this solicitation based on a case-by-case evaluation of comparative costs and other factors and determination that it is to the Government's advantage under the circumstances in accordance with FAR Subpart 7.4. Orders may be issued in support of requirements from the Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), other Federal Agencies/Organizations and foreign governments through the DoD foreign military sales programs. During the term of the contract DLA and VA NAC reserve the right to add other customer groups to be supported by this IDIQ contract. All contracts shall have a five-year base period and a single option to extend contracts for an additional five-year term. Vendors shall support all CONUS locations, Alaska, Hawaii, and U.S. Territories. Vendors may be asked to support OCONUS locations outside of Alaska, Hawaii, and U.S. Territories. One or more of the items under this acquisition is subject to the World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement and Free Trade Agreements. The Government intends to award a contract to all responsible offerors who can be determined acceptable on the overall non-price evaluation, and whose prices are determined to be fair and reasonable. The solicitation and attachments will be posted on https://www.fedbizopps.gov/ through modification/amendment of this solicitation synopsis/Presolicitation notice. The solicitation is expected to be issued on May 22, 2015 and to close on July 27, 2015 at 1:00 pm local Philadelphia time.

16--NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support (NAVSUP WSS) Philadelphia intends to solicit Boeing Defense Systems (81205) for the repair and possible modification of multiple items associated with the P8-A Poseidon

Department of the Navy, Naval Supply Systems Command | Published May 27, 2015  -  Deadline June 10, 2015
cpvs

NAVSUP Weapon Systems Support (NAVSUP WSS) intends to solicit Boeing Defense Systems (81205) for the repair and possible modification of multiple items associated with the P-8A Poseidon aircraft platform. (See Attachment A for list of items). NAVSUP WSS’ intention is to award a Firm Fixed Price, Requirements contract. The contract will consist of one base year and two one-year option periods. Although the Navy intends to obtain competition as soon as feasible for the subject items (generally referred to as common commercial parts), see attached list, currently the P-8A is in the early stages of being deployed. The configuration of the aircraft (including some currently common commercial parts) continues to evolve as operational use is experienced. In addition to that circumstance, key logistics/support data essential to competition is not yet available. Specifically, essential provisioning data, repair data, and engineering/technical data for the subject parts (initially developed for the 737 aircraft by Boeing Commercial Aircraft or its commercial sub-vendors) have not been provided to Boeing Defense Systems, or to the Navy, although the Navy has begun purchasing data. In addition, Critical Safety Item determinations for the P-8A continue to be made and life limits assessed, including commercial common parts. And, under these circumstances, as yet there are no approved Navy Maintenance Plans for the subject commercial common parts. Given these constraints, the Navy is not yet in a position to compete repairs/modifications of the subject items and thus this one-year/two-option-year procurement will be placed with Boeing Defense Systems, the Design Control Activity for the P-8A. This procurement will be processed in accordance with Part 12 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). The applicable NAICS code is 336413. This requirement will be procured in accordance with FAR 6.302-1, only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements. One or more of the items under this acquisition is subject to Free Trade Agreements. (FAR 52.225-3). One or more of the items under this acquisition is subject to the World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement and Free Trade Agreements. (FAR 52.225-5). The Navy is contemplating seeking a closing date in late June/July 2015 or as soon thereafter as is practical. Sources sought. Notwithstanding the current constraints requiring procurement from Boeing Defense Systems as the Design Control Activity for the P-8A, the Navy is, and will be actively seeking in the near future, to maximize the opportunity for competition presented by these commercial common parts. As a result, sources currently approved as Federal Aviation Regulation Part 145 repair stations are encouraged to contact or remain in contact with NAVSUP WSS regarding future competition opportunities as they develop. In doing so the following should be noted. The P-8A is not FAA type certificated. It is expected these items will therefore still require Navy Source Approval prior to award. If you are not a Navy-approved source, when the Navy is in a position to accept and evaluate source approval requests in the future, you will have to submit, prior to or together with any proposal, the information detailed in the NAVSUP WSS Source Approval Brochure which can be obtained on the internet at: https://www.nasup.navy.mil/navsup/ourteam/navsupww/business_opps. Future offers received which fail to provide all data required by the Source Approval Brochure will not be considered for award. Please note, if evaluation of a source approval request submitted cannot be processed in time and/or the approval requirement precludes the ability to obtain the items being procured in time
