The Allied Command Transformation Integrated Capabilities Support (TACTICS)

Other Defense Agencies, NATO, HQ Supreme Allied Commander Transformation | Published September 24, 2015  -  Deadline November 20, 2015

This statement of work (SOW) specifies the products that contractor personnel will be required to deliver in support of the Allied Command Transformation's (ACT) transformational programmes and initiatives. The Strategic Objectives of ACT are to provide appropriate support to NATO missions and operations, lead NATO military transformation and improve relationships, interaction and practical cooperation with partners, nations and international organisations. In recent times, NATO has been shifting from a sustained operational campaign to a contingency readiness footing. Coincident with this shift, the Alliance has placed new emphasis on "Smart Defence" whereby nations endeavour to pool countries' buying power to equip the Alliance with shared capabilities. Furthermore, in the field of education and training, exercises and technology, NATO's Connected Forces Initiative (CFI) is focussing on a series of measures to strengthen the Allies' ability to work together in a truly connected way. Commencing in 2015, NATO has embarked on a series of large-scale, high visibility exercises involving the NATO Response Force (NRF), to help cement the NATO Training Concept 2015-2020, ensure the force is balanced, and prepared to address the full range of Alliance missions. These preparations have proved prescient, so additional adaptation measures will establish a Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) able to deploy within a few days to respond to challenges that arise, particularly at the periphery of NATO's territory. The Challenge. The shift to a contingency posture brings with it a renewed emphasis on the dynamic and unpredictable nature of future operations. In meeting the increase in volatility, ACT is charged with coordinating and supporting full-spectrum transformation for NATO, to include both human and technical dimensions. The diversity of emerging challenges to be met at speed by NATO, and the enduring need for prudent deployment of Alliance resources, demands an agile and flexible approach across a very broad and multi-faceted front. NATO's Strategic Concept, as reaffirmed at the 2014 Wales Summit, enshrines the Alliance's commitment to three core tasks: collective defence, crisis management, and cooperative security. The Strategic Concept underlines that lessons learned from NATO operations show that effective crisis management calls for a comprehensive approach involving a range of civilian and military instruments. The Concept recognises that military means, although essential, are not enough on their own to meet the many complex challenges. A Comprehensive Approach to Transformation. In more than a decade of being the lead agent for NATO Transformation, SACT has identified that a comprehensive approach is nothing less than essential to enable the fulfilment of ACT's mission. The Allied Command Transformation Integrated Capabilities Support (TACTICS) contract is designed to establish the conditions in which SACT has timely access to the leading-edge capabilities necessary to tackle challenges and problems whose size and complexity defy solutions by solely using existing staff or tools within NATO's established organisation. The TACTICS contract is an integral part of SACT's comprehensive organizational and operating strategy that enables mission accomplishment by integrating high quality deliverables from trusted industry partners, with the unique and manifold capacities of NATO's established workforce and toolset. The Desired Effect. In launching the TACTICS Contract, ACT is adopting a "Just in Time" (JIT) approach to obtaining essential technical support from industry. The JIT approach replaces earlier conventional approaches, some of which saw contractors based permanently on-site at HQ SACT for multi-year periods. Fortuitously, HQ SACT has already made important progress in adopting, partially, a JIT approach; previous employment of time and materials contracts with organic short-term surge augmentation capability has been an important step forward, proving that JIT can be made to work in ACT's business environment. The experience from several years of HQ SACT operating these contract surges, combined with the philosophy of JIT, serves to confirm the following: a) Close and active links to support an unambiguous dialogue between HQ SACT and the Contractor are of the utmost importance. This close relationship will set the conditions for mutually beneficial interaction from which both HQ SACT and Contractor can derive the shared situational awareness which is key to making JIT work.

Primavera 6 Support SOW 1. Background: The Industrial Operations Division of the Surface Forces Logistics Command (SFLC) needs support to facilitate implementation of its Industrial Project Management System (IPMS). IPMS is an integrated project management system with web-based Primavera 6 (P6) as the core component. The Industrial Operations Division is comprised of 20 Industrial sites and nine (9) Maintenance and Weapons Divisions (MWD) across the United States. They utilize IPMS/P6 for all project management and resource utilization tracking. The Central Management Office (CMO) and the Industrial sites have approximately 2 years of experience with P6 and the MWDs have just completed their transition to P6 (i.e. new users). Due to increasing complexity of cutter and boat systems, pressure on budgets and increasing demands for cutters and boats to sustain mission readiness, the utilization of Industrial Operations Divisions project management (IPMS/P6) must directly support and provide benefit to the execution of depot level maintenance and therefore mission readiness. There is a gap between current depot level project management training, processes and practices and achievable project management best practices. This gap results in suboptimal resource utilization, over/underestimation of resource requirements, pose an excessive administrative burden, and overall lack of labor accountability.

ALL INFORMATION NEEDED FOR INTERESTED PARTIES TO SUBMIT A STANDARD FORM (SF) 330, ARCHITECT ENGINEER QUALIFICATIONS IS CONTAINED HEREIN. THERE IS NO SEPARATE RFP PACKAGE TO DOWNLOAD. This procurement is for Architectural-Engineering (A-E) Services and will be procured in accordance with the Selection of Architects and Engineers Statute as implemented by Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Subpart 36.6. This procurement is being solicited on an UNRESTRICTED basis; therefore, replies to this notice are requested from all business concerns. The Selection of Architects and Engineers Statute requires agencies to conduct discussions with at least three qualified firms during the selection of firms for Architect-Engineering contracts. The Sources Sought Notice for this requirement, dated 27 February 2014, did not reveal at least three small businesses that possess the required capabilities and capacity to accomplish the work expected under this contract. FAR 36.101(b) states, “When a requirement in this part is inconsistent with a requirement in another part of this regulation, this Part 36 shall take precedence if the acquisition of construction or architect-engineer services is involved;” therefore, the “rule of two” normally used to determine whether a requirement can be set-aside for small business as described in FAR 19 does not apply to this procurement; therefore, Part 36 takes precedence over Part 19, including FAR 19.502-2. The NAVFAC Atlantic small business office and Small Business Administration (SBA) Procurement Center Representative (PCR) concur with this decision. This procurement is a Cost-Plus-Award-Fee (CPAF) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) Architect-Engineer (A-E) Contract for Environmental Engineering Support Services for Comprehensive Long-Term Environmental Action Navy (CLEAN) in Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Atlantic’s Area of Responsibility (AOR), primarily in the NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic Hampton Roads and Marine Corps Integrated Product Teams (IPTs) AOR, NAVFAC Washington AOR, NAVFAC Northwest AOR, NAVFAC Southwest AOR, NAVFAC Europe Africa Southwest Asia (EURAFSWA) AOR, and Puerto Rico. The general scope of this requirement covers A-E services to provide program management and technical environmental services in support of the Department of the Navy’s (DON) Environmental Restoration Program (ERP), including the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), the Munitions Response Program (MRP), and other similar programs at any DON or Marine Corps site within NAVFAC Atlantic’s AOR. The principal geographical regions encompassed by this contract include the states of Alaska, California, Maryland, North Carolina, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Puerto Rico, the area of the District of Columbia, and, to a lesser extent, Wyoming, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Europe and other Department of Defense (DOD) installations nationwide and overseas. The contractor may also, on occasion, be tasked to provide services described herein to any NAVFAC Command, any DOD activity, or other Federal agency activities in any geographic location. Firms shall provide a full range of A-E environmental services for program management and technical services including the following: a. Those in support of the DOD’s ERP in compliance with the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) of 1980, as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) of 1986, and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976. Support of Navy and Marine Corps Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) efforts is also included. Services include, but are not limited to: performance of site management plans, community relation plans, preliminary assessments, site inspections, remedial investigations, feasibility studies, RCRA facility investigations, corrective measures studies, interim measure plans, remedial and removal action designs, environmental assessments, risk assessments (both human health and ecological), contamination characterization, sampling, laboratory testing, presentations at restoration advisory boards (RABs), participation on partnering teams with regulators, operation and maintenance support, Geographical Information System (GIS) development and maintenance, and documentation preparation for facility support contracts and Title II management of remedial action implementation (including subcontract award and management); with emphasis on the accelerated schedules and increased sensitivity, visibility, and regulatory political and community concerns at Naval and Marine Corps installations. b. Those in support of the MRP. Services include the entire suite of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) investigation stages consistent with CERCLA, progressing from a preliminary assessment/site investigation to a remedial investigation/feasibility study through the remedial design, all in accordance with explosive safety standards. Services also include methodologies for UXO detection, clearance, removal, and safety. c. Those in support of addressing large and/or complex Petroleum, Oils, and Lubricants (POL) sites with multiple sources and distribution lines, including assessment characterization, testing monitoring, and remedial action design and oversight. d. Those in support of assessments, studies, investigations, and remedial designs that include other environmental programs such as air, water, waste water, solid waste, asbestos and hazardous substance/waste management, Range Sustainability Environmental Program Assessment (RSEPA), and complex compliance requirements requiring the integration of knowledge from several media and statutes in the United States and abroad. e. Those in support of expedited response actions. f. Those in support of the Navy Installation Restoration Information System (NIRIS) development and maintenance, Web page development and maintenance, GIS, and graphic support. The contract requires that the selected firms have on-line access to e-mail via the Internet for routine exchange of correspondence. Attention is directed to FAR subpart 9.5 and the following provisions. An organizational conflict of interest may exist, if a firm has performed as an Environmental Response Action prime contractor and performs as a CLEAN prime or subcontractor at the same site. An organizational conflict of interest may also exist on a project basis for firms who have performed as prime contractors on other Navy environmental engineering contracts. Firms are advised that NFAS 5252.209-9300 Alt I Organizational Conflicts of Interest will be included in the contract. The restrictions described herein shall apply to the contractor and its affiliates, joint venture partners, consultants and subcontracts under this contract. SELECTION CRITERIA Form 330 (SF-330)—The A-E must demonstrate its and each key consultant’s qualifications with respect to the published evaluation criteria for all services with particular emphasis on work in the geographical locations as described above.

The requirement is to provide the following software licensing, maintenance and support to the NGS/RSD in Silver Spring, MD: Eighteen (18) BAE Systems SOCET SET Core modulesSeventeen (17) BAE Systems SOCET SET Stereo modulesEight (8) BAE Systems SOCET SET MST modulesSeven (7) BAE Systems SOCET SET APM modulesOne (1) BAE Systems SOCET SET ATE modulesOne (1) BAE Systems SOCET SET ITE modulesFifteen (15) BAE Systems SOCET SET FE modulesThree (3) BAE Systems SOCET SET Ortho modulesTwo (2) BAE Systems SOCET SET Dodger modulesNine (9) BAE Systems SOCET SET ClearFlite modulesOne (1) BAE Systems SOCET SET Classified GGI Pro BundleTwo (2) SOCET SET DTW Classified modulesOne (1) SOCET GXP Commercial Pro Bundle UE The period of performance will be five (5) years, specifically a 12-month base term with four 12-month option terms starting July 1, 2016 and continuing through June 30, 2021, should all options be exercised. 4. Identification of Statutory Authority and Supporting Rationale for Limiting Sources Demonstrating the Contractor's Unique Qualifications to Provide the Required Supply/Service: This acquisition is conducted under the authority of Multiple Award Schedule Program (Title III of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (41 U.S.C. 251, et seq. and Title 40 U.S.C. 501, Services for Executive Agencies)). As defined in FAR 8.405-6(a)(1)(i) and (b)(1), only one source is capable of providing the supplies or services required at the level of quality required, because the supplies or services are unique or highly specialized. 5. Determination by the Ordering Activity Contracting Officer that the Order Represents the Best Value Consistent with FAR 8.404(d): In accordance with FAR 8.404(d), GSA has already determined the prices of supplies and services under GSA schedule contract GS-35F-0045K to be fair and reasonable. Prior to award, the Contracting Officer will conduct a price evaluation as required by FAR 8.405-2(d) in order to conclude that the order represents the best value (as defined in FAR 2.101) and results in the lowest overall cost alternative (considering price, special features, administrative costs, etc.) to meet the Government's needs. 6. Description of Market Research: The BAE Systems SOCET SET software and licensing are proprietary to BAE Systems, and no other vendor/company or distributor has the source code to provide this product software licensing or maintenance and support services. BAE Systems is the exclusive worldwide developer and distributor of SOCET SET and SOCET GXP products and services, and can only be purchased from BAE SYSTEMS or through its authorized distributors. BAE SYSTEMS is the only U.S. distributor of the software; there are currently no other U.S. distributors. This was confirmed by a search of the company's website which revealed authorized distributors in other countries, but no distributors in the U.S. Additionally, a letter was received from BAE Systems stating that BAE Systems is the exclusive worldwide developer and distributor of the stated software. In 1999, the NGS completed an exhaustive study to identify suitable softcopy (i.e. digital) photogrammetric software to replace its analytical photogrammetric environment. As a result of this study, BAE Systems SOCET SET software was selected as the exclusive provider based on a) its ability to meet all requirements including the stringent standards, 2) its capability of being utilized in the classified arena, and 3) BAE Systems provides support that ensures the safety and efficiency of U.S. private and commercial navigation (air and sea). Since that time, the NGS/RSD technical/GIS (Geographic Information Systems) experts have continued to seek out and evaluate competitive products available in the marketplace. This is generally accomplished by the regular attendance of annual ESRI conferences and GIS technology-related seminars which feature various types of software platforms and solutions for similar requirements. To date, they have been unable to find an acceptable software platform alternative with the capability to perform all of the stated requirements. Of particular importance are 1) the ability to perform the aero-triangulation on the multiple imagery, including LIDAR and DSS (DSS camera systems), 2) 3D mapping that is environment-friendly to cartographers, 3) allow the NGS to map shoreline and FAA airport obstructions in 3D, and 4) is compatible with ESRI's ArcGIS. Currently, no other software platform has all of these capabilities. The NGS/RSD client will continue to consider any new capabilities of competing software products and companies. 7. Other Facts Supporting the Justification: BAE Systems is uniquely qualified to provide these BAE Systems SOCET SET software and SOCET GXP maintenance and support services to the NGS/RSD based upon the following:    a) BAE Systems SOCET SET software is employed exclusively by NGS to process airborne film and digital photography, compile shoreline features, and perform the requirements provided herein. This software meets the stringent standards identified by NOS, is capable of being utilized in the classified arena, and provides support that ensures the safety and efficiency of U.S. private and commercial navigation (air and sea). BAE Systems SOCET SET software is fully integrated into NOS/NGS production environment.    b) Integration of any other software besides BAE Systems SOCET SET would require purchase of a completely new mapping system, and thus incurring considerable additional costs that would far exceed any foreseen cost savings associated with purchasing an alternative product. However, at this time, the technical experts within the NOS/NGS have been unable to find an acceptable software platform alternative with the capability to perform all of the stated requirements.    c) BAE Systems is the only software vendor of these licenses that the NGS utilizes to perform Quality Control and Process the Coastal Mapping data. Not purchasing these licenses would cause NOAA to be unable to review the quality of the data to ensure its integrity and accuracy, and would not allow for NGS to continue processing and distributing to other agencies and sources which rely on this data.    d) NGS has critical mission requirements to fulfill the Congressionally-mandated National Shoreline survey, and not employing the required software to ensure mission success would cause a break in service and a loss of support for detecting obstructions for the National FAA airspace. The acquisition is essential to the Government's requirement. 8. Actions the Agency May Take to Remove or Overcome Any Barriers that Led to the Restricted Consideration Prior to Subsequent Acquisition for the Supplies or Services: Replacing the current BAE Systems software supplies and services is not a viable option at this time, as there is no other software platform capable of meeting the established requirements. The Congressionally-mandated National Shoreline survey would be unable to continue if the BAE Systems follow-on acquisition is not executed, and would cause unacceptable delays in fulfilling the agency's requirements. However, the Government will continue to monitor this specialized software industry and seek out new sources that can meet the established requirements. Until such time, BAE Systems is the only source capable. 9. Approval: The contracting officer has certified that only one source is capable of providing the supplies or services required at the level of quality required because the supplies or services are unique or highly specialized.

Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC), has established the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS), a standardized process for granting unescorted access privileges to vendors, contractors, suppliers and service providers not otherwise entitled to the issuance of a Common Access Card (CAC) who seek access to and can provide justification to enter Navy installations and facilities. Visiting vendors may obtain daily passes directly from the individual Navy installations by submitting identification credentials for verification and undergoing a criminal screening/ background check. Alternatively, if the vendor so chooses, it may voluntarily elect to obtain long-term credentials through enrollment, registration, background vetting, screening, issuance of credentials, and electronic validation of credentials at its own cost through a designated independent contractor NCACS service provider. Credentials will be issued every five years and access privileges will be reviewed/ renewed on an annual basis. Further information regarding NCACS is forthcoming. Contractors should plan accordingly when personally delivering proposals to the designated government installation for a one-day pass access. Please ensure your company personnel or delivery service can obtain access to the designated installation to avoid delays and access being denied by the pass and id office. Government employees are not responsible for and will not pick up contractor personnel or proposals external to the designated government agency or installation.
