Also, the Full Text of a clause may be accessed electronically at this Internet address: www.arnet.gov/far/ 52.209-7 Information Regarding Responsibility Matters (JUL 2013) a) Definitions. As used in this provision- "Administrative proceeding" means a non-judicial process that is adjudicatory in nature in order to make a determination of fault or liability (e.g., Securities and Exchange Commission Administrative Proceedings, Civilian Board of Contract Appeals Proceedings, and Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals Proceedings). This includes administrative proceeding at the Federal and State level but only in connection with performance of a Federal contract or grant. It does not include agency actions such as contract audits, site visits, corrective plans, or inspection of deliverables. "Federal contracts and grants with total value greater than $10,000,000" means- (1) The total value of all current, active contracts and grants, including all priced options; and (2) The total value of all current, active orders including all priced options under indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity, 8(a), or requirements contracts (including task and delivery and multiple-award Schedules). "Principal" means an officer, director, owner, partner, or a person having primary management or supervisory responsibilities within a business entity (e.g., general manager; plant manager; head of a division or business segment; and similar positions). (b) The Offeror [_] has [_] does not have current active Federal contracts and grants with total value greater than $10,000,000. (c) If the Offeror checked "has" in paragraph (b) of this provision, the Offeror represents, by submission of this offer, that the information it has entered in the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS) is current, accurate, and complete as of the date of submission of this offer with regard to the following information: (1) Whether the Offeror, and/or any of its principals, has or has not, within the last five years, in connection with the award to or performance by the Offeror of a Federal contract or grant, been the subject of a proceeding, at the Federal or State level that resulted in any of the following dispositions: (i) In a criminal proceeding, a conviction.

(End of provision) 52.212-1 Instructions to Offerors-Commercial Items (OCT 2015) 52.212-2 Evaluation - Commercial Items (OCT 2014) (a) The Government intends to award based on the best value, trade-off process IAW FAR 13.106. The Government may, if necessary, conduct discussions with all responsible Offerors within the competitive range if established. Award will be made to the best Offeror whose quote conforms to the terms and conditions of the solicitation and represents the best value to the Government. Therefore, award may be made to other than the lowest price or the highest technically rated offer. (b) Evaluation Methodology. RELATIVE IMPORTANCE AND TRADE-OFFS. The Government will base the determination of best value on a comparative assessment of the Offerors' technical approach, past performance, delivery, price and the other evaluation factors identified elsewhere in the solicitation. The determination of best value also considers the relative importance of the evaluation factors. All non-price evaluation factors, when combined are: [X] significantly more important than price. As other evaluation factors become more equal, the evaluated cost or price becomes more important. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: Factor 1 - Technical Approach: The Offeror will provide a detailed technical package which describes the processes, equipment, facility, engineering capabilities, environmental controls, and experience levels of personnel, related to the levels of repair IAW the Statement of Work (SOW). The package shall describe processes that demonstrate technical capability to repair carbon fiber, fiberglass, aramid and kevlar, of monolithic and sandwich structural design. Composite panels, excluding carbon fiber, may have aluminum wire or screen imbedded into the surface of the panel to aide in electrical and static protection or has an anti-static paint applied. Dimple washers may be installed to protect sandwich panels from crushing loads when fasteners are tightened during panel installation in other structures, as well as, providing a means for electrical bonding. The package shall be prepared in an orderly format and in sufficient detail to enable the Government to make a thorough evaluation of the Contractor's technical competence and ability to comply with the solicitation requirements specified in the SOW. It must be clear, concise and include sufficient detail for effective evaluation and substantiation of claim validity. Legibility, clarity and coherence are very important. The package should not simply re-state or re-phrase the Government's requirements, rather provide convincing rationale how the Offeror intends to meet the Government's requirements. Offerors shall assume the Government has no prior knowledge of their facilities and experience, and will base its evaluation on the information presented in the Offeror's quote. Pricing must not be included in the technical package. Offeror in submitting its quote shall further: • Provide uncontrolled approved copy of the company's quality manual. Review will be based on the requirements set forth by the FAA part 145 advisory circular AC 145-9. • Provide a copy of the title 14CFR Part 145 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifications which includes the Air Agency Certificate and Operations Specifications. • Provide documentation concerning FAA Designated Engineering Representative (DER) experience and capability to engineer repair procedures for composite components. Technical approach will be rated in accordance with the adjectival categories in Table 1 below. Factor 2 - Past Performance: In conducting past performance evaluations, the Government reserves the right to use both the information provided by the Offeror and information obtained from other sources. Offeror shall provide in its quote a minimum of two past performance references with contact information (within the last three years) demonstrating performance of work similar in type and scope to that described in the SOW. Offeror is requested to forward the Past Performance Questionnaire found in Attachment C attached hereto to these references for prompt completion and request the responses be submitted electronically directly to the Contract Specialist of this solicitation no later than December 17, 2015 at 4:00 pm EST. Past performance questionnaires submitted by the Offeror will not be accepted. The Government reserves the right to verify past performance information and obtain past performance information using tools such as the Government's Past Performance Information Systems. If Offeror has no past performance history, Offeror must affirmatively so state. When past performance is not available, the Offeror will be evaluated as neutral. The Offeror shall include documentation regarding their past performance as it directly relates to the work being procured under this solicitation. To illustrate Offeror's past performance, the following documentation shall be submitted: Offeror shall provide documentation outlining the Offeror's past performance with contracts, as a prime or major subcontractor, which is the same or similar in nature, size, complexity to the services being procured under this RFQ. The submittal shall include rationale how it was determined that the work performed previously was the same or similar in nature, size, and complexity to the work specified in the RFQ. Non-government contracts may be used if Government contracts are not available. Offerors electing to submit this data must furnish at least the following information: Name and address of the contracting entity; the contract number; award and completion dates; the dollar value; the contract type; the phone number, and any problems encountered and the corrective action taken by the Offeror. The documentation shall be submitted in the following format: o Contract Number, Award Date and Contract Type. o Price - Original Award and Final (or projected final, if contract is current). o Offerors are reminded that both independent data and data provided by offerors may be used by the Government to evaluate Offeror past performance. However, the burden of providing thorough and complete past performance as requested remains with the Offerors. Quotes that do not contain requested information risk being rejected or receiving a lesser rating by the Government. In the case of an Offeror without any relevant past performance, past performance will be rated as neither favorably nor unfavorably. o The Government will evaluate Offeror's Past Performance and assess relative risks associated with its likelihood of success in performing the requirements of this RFQ. Performance risk is assessed after evaluating aspects of the Offeror's recent past performance and focusing on performance relevant to the services procured hereunder. Offerors are cautioned that in conducting the performance risk assessment, the Government may use data provided in the Offeror's quote, data obtained from other sources, such as the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS), similar systems, interviews with technical managers, contracting officers, commercial sources and other sources known to the Government. Areas of evaluation shall include: • Business Relations • Quality of Service • Schedule • Customer Satisfaction Past Performance will be rated in accordance with the adjectival categories in Table 2 below. Factor 3 - Delivery: The Coast Guard requires a maximum turn-around time of 30 days after receipt of components, for repair of HC-144 composite panels. Historical requirements to date show that quantities of panels issued for repair have ranged from 50 to 75 panels per delivery order. The Government will evaluate Offeror's capability to deliver quantities of panels within the required turn-around time. Delivery will be rated in accordance with the adjectival categories in Table 3 below. Factor 4 - Price: The Government intends to award one firm fixed-price contract. The Government intends to evaluate offers and award the contract without discussions. Therefore, the Offeror's initial offer should contain the Offeror's best terms from a price and technical standpoint. Pricing should be quoted separately for all levels of repair for all CLIN(s), for the base year and option periods as specified in the schedule. The Government will evaluate pricing for all levels of repair for all years. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if repair level prices and option year prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s). Table 1. Rating System for Technical Approach Adjectival Rating Description Superior Exceeds the RFQ requirements. The quote yields significant benefits to the Government through the demonstration of one or more strengths. Weaknesses, if any, are of small impact and NO significant weaknesses or deficiencies exist. Satisfactory Meets all RFQ requirements. The quote offers no significant benefit beyond the stated requirements. NO significant weaknesses or deficiencies exist. Marginal Fails to meet the minimum RFQ requirements, or has one or more significant weaknesses. Deficiencies and significant weaknesses are correctable without major quote revisions. Unsatisfactory Fails to meet the minimum RFQ requirements. The quote has one or more deficiencies for which correction would require major revisions of the quote. Table 2. Rating System for Past Performance Adjectival Rating Description Superior One or more examples where past performance significantly exceeded requirements with no marginal or unsatisfactory past performance reports. Satisfactory Past performance met requirements with no marginal or unsatisfactory past performance reports. Marginal One or more examples where past performance failed to meet requirements due to the contractor's fault. Unsatisfactory One or more examples where past performance significantly failed to meet requirements due to the contractor's fault. Neutral Per FAR 15.305(a)(2)(iv), if an Offeror has no recent or relevant past performance information available, the Offeror ‘may not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance' and will be rated as Neutral. Table 3. Rating System for Delivery Adjectival Rating Description Superior One or more examples where delivery significantly exceeded requirements with no marginal or unsatisfactory past performance reports. Satisfactory Delivery met requirements with no marginal or unsatisfactory past performance reports. Marginal One or more examples where delivery failed to meet requirements due to the contractor's fault. Unsatisfactory One or more examples where delivery significantly failed to meet requirements due to the contractor's fault. 52.212-3 Offeror Representations and Certifications-Commercial Items (NOV 2015) - ALT 1 (OCT 2014) An Offeror shall complete only paragraphs (b) of this provision if the Offeror has completed the annual representations and certificates electronically via http://www.acquisition.gov .

Inverted Domestic Corporation. A foreign incorporated entity shall be treated as an inverted domestic corporation if, pursuant to a plan (or a series of related transactions)- (1) The entity completes the direct or indirect acquisition of substantially all of the properties held directly or indirectly by a domestic corporation or substantially all of the properties constituting a trade or business of a domestic partnership; (2) After the acquisition at least 80 percent of the stock (by vote or value) of the entity is held- (i) In the case of an acquisition with respect to a domestic corporation, by former shareholders of the domestic corporation by reason of holding stock in the domestic corporation; or (ii) In the case of an acquisition with respect to a domestic partnership, by former partners of the domestic partnership by reason of holding a capital or profits interest in the domestic partnership; and (3) The expanded affiliated group which after the acquisition includes the entity does not have substantial business activities in the foreign country in which or under the law of which the entity is created or organized when compared to the total business activities of such expanded affiliated group. Person, domestic, and foreign have the meanings given such terms by paragraphs (1), (4), and (5) of section 7701(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, respectively. (c) Special rules. The following definitions and special rules shall apply when determining whether a foreign incorporated entity should be treated as an inverted domestic corporation. (1) Certain stock disregarded. For the purpose of treating a foreign incorporated entity as an inverted domestic corporation these shall not be taken into account in determining ownership: (i) Stock held by members of the expanded affiliated group which includes the foreign incorporated entity; or (ii) Stock of such entity which is sold in a public offering related to an acquisition described in section 835(b)(1) of the Homeland Security Act, 6 U.S.C. 395(b)(1). (2) Plan deemed in certain cases. If a foreign incorporated entity acquires directly or indirectly substantially all of the properties of a domestic corporation or partnership during the 4-year period beginning on the date which is 2 years before the ownership requirements of subsection (b)(2) are met, such actions shall be treated as pursuant to a plan. (3) Certain transfers disregarded.

Questions regarding this solicitation should be submitted in writing to David.E.Tanner@uscg.mil STATEMENT OF WORK 1. BACKGROUND 1.1 The United States Coast Guard (USCG) currently operates eighteen (18) HC-144A Maritime Patrol Aircraft each powered by two CT7-9C3 turboprop engines. The aircraft is manufactured by AIRBUS MILITARY (formerly EADS CASA) in Seville, Spain. The CT7-9C3 turboprop engines are manufactured by General Electric, Aviation Division of Lynn, MA, USA, Original Equipment Manufacturer, (OEM). While the base CASA CN-235-300M aircraft provides the foundation for the USCG HC-144A, changes to the base aircraft configuration and the addition of supplementary systems have been combined resulting in a CG01 version of the CN-235-300M. 1.2 This Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) is operated differently from general aviation in support of USCG search and rescue missions, as well as surveillance and reconnaissance missions. USCG HC-144A missions require frequent operation at lower altitudes and in salt-laden environments. These environments accelerate corrosion on airframe structures, engines and components of the aircraft. The aircraft and its components are inspected by USCG personnel In Accordance With (IAW) the OEM periodic requirements and in conjunction with the USCG's specialized Asset Computerized Maintenance System (ACMS). 2. SCOPE 2.1 The scope of this SOW is to obtain repair services for the General Electric (GE) CT7-9C3 turboprop engine power units, modules, and components, listed in the Schedule on an "as required" basis. 2.2 Levels of Repair shall be defined as: a. Major Repair -- A "Major" repair consists of a minor repair and the complete disassembly of the engine and inspection of modules as required by Small Engine Instruction (SEI)-576/578 returning the engine to service. The Contractor must review and be in compliance with required service bulletins and Airworthiness Directives (AD), re-assembly of the engine, test and prep-to-ship. b. Minor Repair -- A "Minor" repair consists of removal of the hot section module, Power Turbine (PT) Module and Accessory Gearbox (AGB). The hot section module and PT module shall be inspected and repaired as required by SEI-576/578. The AGB shall be inspected for obvious damage/defects as required by SEI-576/578. Bore Scope Inspection (BSI) shall be performed on the compressor rotor/stator. Compressor case half shall be removed as required addressing any findings identified during the bore scope inspection. The cold section will be held for re-assembly of the engine. The contractor shall review and be in compliance with required service bulletins and airworthiness directives, re-assembly of the engine, test and prep-to-ship. c. Test Teardown and Evaluation (TT&E) -- Based on the removal cause and/or time on the engine, a full BSI may be performed to determine the condition of the engine. If the BSI does not accurately determine the condition of the engine, half-casing the compressor may be required for a more detailed inspection. If the removal cause and/or times on the engine were a concern, the engine will be disassembled to module level. If the Government chooses to continue with the contractor for repairs, the cost of TT&E will be included in the repair cost. The Contractor shall submit in writing or via email to the Contracting Officer a proposal for a Minor or Major repair. If approved by the Contracting Officer, a modification will be issued. d. Performance Run-- Requires ONLY a visual and bore scope inspection (no Teardown) if no discrepancies exist, then complete a Test Cell performance run and provide the findings to the USCG Contracting Officer. If the engine or PGB is found to be in serviceable condition IAW OEM testing specifications, the contractor shall return it to the USCG with an FAA authorized airworthiness form attached. 2.3 Repair of listed GE components must be accomplished In Accordance With (IAW) the OEM specifications. This SOW establishes the minimum USCG requirements necessary for repairs of the engine power units, modules, and components and is not intended to be all inclusive, nor detract from the procedures outlined in the manufacturer's drawings, manuals, specifications, and service bulletins. USCG configuration control requires that applicable service bulletins and modifications for all ACMS tracked engine power units, modules, and components not previously configured, shall not be incorporated without prior written approval from the USCG Contracting Officer. 2.4 Designated Engineering Representative (DER) repairs: DER repair procedures may be authorized by the USCG Contracting Officer on a case-by-case basis after review by the USCG Engineering Officer. The contractor shall submit a complete technical package to the USCG Contracting Officer for approval showing the proposed DER repair procedure on an FAA form 8110-3 which shall meet the OEM operational requirements. This information will not be released outside of the Government. 2.5 The Contractor shall be responsible for all necessary functions to perform services requested. This includes, but is not limited to, required tooling, manuals, test equipment, parts, material, engineering services, management, maintenance, documentation, preservation, and shipping of the CT7-9C3 engine power units, modules, and components. 2.6 Test cell runs must be accomplished on test cells certified as correlated to the CT7-9C3 engine OEM test cells. 2.7 The contractor shall track and document for USCG specialized ACMS and Significant Component History Reports (SCHR) the necessary calendar time, flight time, and appropriate flight cycle requirement for the CT7-9C3 engine power units, modules, and components which must be accomplished to maintain the integrity of any OEM high-time hourly intervals and life cycle limits. 2.8 The contractor shall maintain a current list and status of all OEM Component Maintenance Manuals (CMM), Shop Manuals(SM) including Revisions (Rev), Temporary Revisions (TR), Service Bulletins (SB), Modifications (MOD), Amendments (AMD) or other specifications applicable to the overhaul, repair and modification of the USCG CT7-9C3 engine power units, modules, and components. The contractor shall be on the regular distribution with the OEM for automatic notifications of updates for all the above data. 2.9 The contractor shall establish and provide a warranty plan to ensure that all replacement parts and services are covered by warranty. The warranty plan shall provide a warranty repair process such as procedures for processing, length of warranty from time of service, shipping instructions and a point of contact (POC) between the contractor and the USCG. All warranty discrepancies shall be corrected within six months. Aircraft On Ground (AOG). The contractor shall expedite the repair and return of the required components in accordance with the established AOG plan. 3. CONTRACT REQUIREMENTS 3.1 The contractor shall be a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Part 145 authorized repair center or European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification equivalent to effectively inspect, test, troubleshoot, clean, and repair GE CT7-9C3 engine power units, modules, and components to current OEM configurations while maintaining any USCG specific requirements for return to service in a Ready For Issue (RFI) condition and USCG operational use. The engine power units, modules, and components must remain configured for installation on USCG HC-144A aircraft. For Production Approval Holder (PAH), a Certificate of Conformance (COC) and a copy of the FAA Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) or other manufacturing authority shall be provided.
