REQUIREMENT: The United States Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School (USAJFKSWCS) has a requirement for a non-personnel service contract to provide local guest speaker services that convey first-hand knowledge of former Prisoners of War. The former POW's experiences provide a valuable service to students by confirming, based on their actual experience, that the lessons learned during the Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape (SERE) course are in fact valid. Requirements are up to 18 speaker sessions per year.

Projected Period of Performance (POP) is; Base Year (12 Months Period), and Option Years: Four (4), 12 Months Option Periods.

INTERESTED SOURCES CAPABLE OF FULFILLING THIS REQUIREMENT shall submit documentation addressing all required elements listed herein; providing only a reference to a website is unacceptable for purposes of this announcement and will not be considered or reviewed. All proprietary or corporate data received shall be clearly identified and shall be protected from release to sources outside the Government. Please do not submit classified material. Contractors interested in providing this service should be registered in the System for Award Management (www.sam.gov).

It is the interested parties' responsibility to ensure receipt of all e-mail and faxed correspondence. If receipt has not been acknowledged within 24 hours, please contact the Contracting Office at 910-432-8697.

FINAL DETERMINATION: Current market research shows that there is only one local vendor capable of fulfilling the requirement however, it is the Government's intent to include responses to this RFI when making its final determination to negotiate on a sole source basis.

Provided no other interested sources with the capability to fulfill this requirement are identified, the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, Fort Bragg, North Carolina intends to negotiate on a sole source basis with the Fayetteville Chapter of the American Ex-Prisoners of War, 1941 Wayne LN, Fayetteville NC 28304-1536

Respondents will NOT be individually notified of the results however, if the final determination results in the verification of a sole source negotiation, the properly redacted Justification and Approval (J&A) will be posted to the FBO site within 14 days of contract award.
