NASA/GSFC intends to execute a one-year extension to the current Facilities Construction, Engineering, and Technical Services (FaCETS), NNG11AZ08C, during the competitive process for the award of the FaCETS III follow-on procurement. The contract is for a multitude of services associated with facility design and construction and other related technical services for Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). The facilitys design and construction work can be described as construction, modification, or rehabilitation of facilities, varying from routine general construction to installation of complex special test or laboratory systems. It includes work on building interiors and exteriors, including, but not limited to, architectural, structural, electrical, mechanical, environmental, and fire protection (detection and suppression). This requirement also includes civil site work and both underground and surface site utility system work. The extension of the period of performance will be from April 19, 2016 through April 18, 2017. PTSI Managed Services, Inc. will continue to provide these services to GSFC for the one-year extension. If GSFC attempts to procure these services from open sources for this interim period, several ongoing efforts would be negatively impacted as a result of: 1) delay due to the competitive process; 2) time required to transition to a new management team; 3) time required to coordinate new staffing levels and schedules; and 4) delays resulting from a new contractors efforts to become familiar with new work requirements and systems.

NASA/GSFC plans to award a follow-on contract, Omnibus Multidiscipline Engineering Services II, to provide support to the NASA/GSFC Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate (AETD). The AETD is GSFCs largest organization responsible for providing multidiscipline engineering expertise to all projects within GSFC, including Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) and Satellite Servicing Capabilities Office (SSCO). OMES II will provide the most comprehensive engineering capability in core discipline skills (Mechanical, Electrical, Optical, Quality Inspection, etc.) essential for completion of JPSS and SSCO requirements. The principle purpose of this contract is to acquire services for the study, design, systems engineering, development, fabrication, integration, testing, verification, and operations of spaceflight, airborne, and ground system hardware and software, including development and validation of new technologies to enable future space and science missions. The place of performance for OMES II will be at the NASA/GSFC and contractor facilities. It is anticipated that the subject contract will be a Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee (CPFF), Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Single-Award contract with a five year period of performance. The maximum ordering value will be $620 million. The period of performance will be five years from the anticipated contract award date of on or about May 3, 2017. The Government anticipates a release of the Draft Request for Proposal (DRFP) in February 2016. This will be an opportunity for potential offerors to provide questions, comments or any concerns regarding the DRFP and attachments which includes the SOW. Further, potential offerors will be instructed to submit their OCI mitigation strategies after DRFP release in order for NASA to review them and provide responses to each potential offeror prior to the final RFP release. No proposal/offer is to be submitted during this posting. The Government anticipates a release date for the Request for Proposal (RFP) in May 2016, with an anticipated offer due date in June 2016. The Government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12. This procurement will be a full and open competition. The anticipated Small Business goals for this procurement are as follows: Total Small Business Goals 25%; Small Disadvantaged Business Concerns (SDB) 5%; Women Owned Small Business Concerns (WOSB) 4.5%; Historically Black Colleges & Universities 0.2%; HUBZone Small Business Concerns 1.2%; Veteran-Owned Small Business Concerns (VOSB) 4.3%; Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concern 1.6%. The NAICS Code and Size Standard are 541712 and 1000 employees, respectively. All responsible sources may submit an offer when applicable, which shall be considered by the agency.
