Synopsis :
Added: Oct 02, 2017 10:39 am
The Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) Orlando, FL intends to sole source the Aegis Ashore Team Trainer (AATT) effort to Lockheed Martin Corporation (LM) Rotary and Mission Systems (RMS) Division (cage code 16331) of Orlando, FL under the authority of 10 U.S.C. 2304 (c)(1) as implemented by FAR 6.302-1.

LM RMS is the developer, integrator, and test agent for OASIS and AATT simulation software baselines and has sole access to the Aegis Common Source Library (CSL) which contains proprietary information and weapon defense tactical system software. This access is necessary to retrieve the OASIS and AATT software components to analyze and correct reported software performance issues.

The anticipated award date is 31 March2018. The anticipated contract value for this procurement is $2.5M total.

LM RMS, as the AATT original equipment manufacturer (OEM), has complete knowledge of the interface design specification between the combat and weapon system elements within the Aegis Ashore Combat System (AACS) tactical software and AATT simulation software. Ongoing market research performed by the Government supports there does not exist a commercially available item or non-developmental item to satisfy the Governmentas requirement. Additionally, the Small Business Office concurred with the decision to sole source to the OEM (LM RMS).

This notice is not a request for competitive proposals.

Written response to this notice must show clear and convincing evidence that competition would be advantageous to the Government. Interested sources must submit detailed written technical capabilities to provide distance simulation software deficiency analysis, engineering support for simulation software correction, onsite simulation software correction installation and testing, and simulation software correction product deliver for the AATT effort. Detailed written capabilities must be submitted by email to Ms.

Elle Henning (elle.henning@navy.mil) in an electronic format that is compatible with Microsoft Office 2010 applications (MS Word), no later than close of business on Tuesday, 17 October 2017. Verbal submissions via phone will not be honored.

All information shall be furnished at no cost or obligation to the Government. Responses shall be limited to no more than TEN (10) pages. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed contract action based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. Information received will be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. This notice is not to be considered a request for quotations or proposals.
