A--PROFESSIONAL MILITARY EDUCATION RESEARCH and COURSEWARE

Department of the Navy, Naval Supply Systems Command | Published August 19, 2016  -  Deadline August 24, 2016
cpvs

The Philadelphia Office of the U.S. Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Fleet Logistics Center Norfolk Contracting Department intends to solicit the sole source procurement of professional services from The Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC) of Old Dominion University (ODU) in support of The Center for Complex Operations (CCO) of the National Defense University (NDU) for the development, piloting, and dissemination of a courseware suite of instructional modules for use by Professional Military Education (PME) institutions for the enhancement of joint force readiness and agility concerning adaptive learning and decision-making leading to an increased likelihood of success in a battle space involving trans-regional illicit networks. Required technical support necessitates subject matter expertise concerning relevant social science research specific to the emergent roles and impacts of illicit actors, structures, and networks across a volatile global environment. ODU VMASC has been performing such support of NDU CCO research on the meta problem of illicit networks and illicit power, analyzing and synthesizing the multiple dimensions of the impact of the problem as it relates to joint force decision-making and response to global security and conflict in the Twenty-first Century. In providing this support, ODU VMASC has coalesced an extensive network of global thinkers, researchers, policy makers and implementers, amassing a large body of research which became codified in three NDU publications: “Convergence: Illicit Networks in the Age of Globalization,” Impunity: Confronting Illicit Power in War and Transition,” and “Beyond Convergence: World without Order.” The instant requirement is a logical follow-on to services previously performed by ODU VMASC for NDU CCO under Task Order 0068 of Contract N00189-08-D-Z052. In the performance of that foundational effort, ODU VMASC identified relevant issues, conducted in-depth analysis, and subsequently developed and mapped the potential pathways for effectively applying the insights achieved from that research to Defense policy, planning, and education. As a result, ODU VMASC accomplished the partial development of instructional material concerning trans-regional illicit networks for incorporation into Military social science curricula. This follow-on effort will require ODU VMASC to both synthesize and nuance its foundational research for the development, piloting, and dissemination of a courseware suite of instructional modules for seamless integration into the core curriculum of multiple PME institutions. This acquisition is being processed pursuant to FAR Part 6.302-1, Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services will Satisfy Agency Requirements. ODU VMASC is considered the only source of subject matter expertise with relevant experience and the breadth and depth of knowledge of topical, cutting-edge social science research for global, culturally-specific military application to successfully perform the instant requirement. All other responsible sources may submit concise documentation for consideration regarding their ability to provide the required support, as well as financial and technical information. However, this notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals. A determination by the Government not to compete the proposed contract action based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. Furthermore, no award will be made on the basis of information received in response to this notice and the Navy will not pay for any information provided. Information received will normally be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether or not competitive procurement is a possibility. Such information, if submitted, should be forwarded to NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Norfolk Contracting Department, Philadelphia Office, 700 Robbins Ave., Bldg. 2B, Philadelphia, PA 19111-5083, to the attention of W. A. Woodring, Code 290.2B, and reference acquisition control number 2016-2859. If no affirmative written responses advantageous to the Navy are received within five (5) calendar days after publication of this notice, ODU VMASC will be solicited to provide the required support. The issuance of a purchase order is contemplated with a period of performance of 1 September 2016 through twelve (12) months thereafter. The applicable Product Service Code (PSC) and North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code are AJ71 and 541720, respectively. If this procurement were competed, no additional synopsis would be published and a request for quotation would only be forwarded to the intended source and entities that responded to this synopsis of intent.

B--It is the Navys intent to contract on a limited source basis to acquire continued support for model functionality enhancements from either QinetiQ LTD or Decision Analysis Services LTD.

Department of the Navy, Naval Supply Systems Command | Published April 3, 2015  -  Deadline April 13, 2015
cpvs

Notice is hereby provided of the Navy’s intent to contract on a limited source basis to acquire continued support for maintenance and model functionality enhancements and operator training from either QinetiQ LTD or Decision Analysis Services LTD for the Navy’s Operating and Support Cost Analysis Model (OSCAM). The original OSCAM model development was a cooperative venture between the U.S. Navy and the U.K. Ministry of Defense (MoD). HVR Consulting Services Limited, did the original Ship and Ship Systems model development, developed and taught the models training courses, and executed a complete Ships model revision including updating the architecture of the model to object-oriented programming replacing a hodge-podge model structure, and assisted in updating the ship operating and support business rules to ensure that the models behavior reflected current operational concepts and procedures. HVR used these efforts for The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program Office to build a JSF-unique OSCAM model. Subsequently; the Government leveraged ongoing efforts to build the JSF model and upgrade the Navys OSCAM Air model architecture, structure, and business rules. In 2009, QinetiQ, LTD acquired HVR and all the data and process rights held by HVR. Over the next several years, HVR employees involved in the OSCAM development process since its inception left QinetiQ employment. Several of these former QinetiQ employees have joined former colleagues in their own consulting business, Decision Analytic Services (DAS). DAS represents the only known offeror outside of the incumbent deemed capable of performing the complex tasks in the PWS and delivering a superior service, whether in model enhancement or in curriculum and delivery. OSCAM is a simulation model that seeks to represent the operating and support (O and S) business processes allowing cost engineers, systems engineers, logisticians and planners to develop robust operating and support (O and S) cost estimates for budgeting, as inputs to Analyses of Alternatives (AOAs), and assess source selections. The OSCAM models are Systems Dynamics-based models that perform time-stepped calculations within and among different model sectors to simulate ship and aircraft costs throughout the O and S phase of the platforms lifecycle. These tools are far and above more complex and comprehensive than any MS Excel-based cost model. Much of the level of effort required in this PWS is dedicated to conducting training on use of the models. The majority of the students undergoing this training are Navy cost analysts with widely varying degrees of experience. The government data supplied with the model undergoes specific formatting to be incorporated into the model. Changing the fundamental architecture of the OSCAM model will require re-processing of the VAMOSC data to fit the new model shell, adding significantly to the cost of producing, testing, and deploying a new model. An important component in the delivery of OSCAM training courses is the ability to explain both complex modeling characteristics/capabilities and cost estimating concepts and methodologies to a class of students with varying technical backgrounds and levels of experience. The successful offeror must have an integrated skill set that satisfies all of the tasks contained in the Performance Work Statement (PWS). These skill sets include: Expert systems dynamics modeling capability, Knowledge of cost estimating methods and procedures and excellent communications skills. The successful offeror must be able to develop, execute, and perform verification and validation (V and V) enhancements to existing models and introduction of new models and address technical questions of how the model works, and how to apply the model in real-life situations. It would be prohibitive from both a price and time standpoint, for any other firm to replicate the system and/or previously provided training, thereby resulting in a detrimental impact to the NCCA mission. The U.S. government has retained ownership of the data used to populate the model. Specifically, this effort will provide enhancements to OSCAM functionality, upgrades to comply with the requirements of the NMCI environment, and continued training for prospective OSCAM users. More over; QinetiQ Ltd and Decision Analysis Services, Ltd are the only companies that have knowledge intimate enough to satisfactorily support this requirement. Subsequently, it is the Governments intention to negotiate a limited source contract in accordance with FAR Subpart 12.6 using Simplified Acquisition Procedures under the test program for commercial items found at FAR 13.5, as supplemented with the additional information included in this notice. The period of performance for these services includes one annual base period with four annual options. This is not a request for quotes, instead interested parties may submit capability information in order to challenge this intent to for a limited source contract with either QinetiQ Ltd or DAS by 13 April 2015 to Shawn.Thomas1@navy.mil; however the final decision to process this requirement on a competitive vice sole source basis (as depicted herein) rests with the Navy. The applicable NAICS code is 541690.
