The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Network Contracting Office (NCO) 2, and the New York/New Jersey VA Health Care Network (VISN 2) Upstate anticipate a requirement for Prescription Eyeglasses for eligible Veteran beneficiaries within VISN 2 Upstate. This requirement is for the manufacturing and delivery of both dress and safety prescription eyeglasses. Contractor shall offer both dress and safety frames, as well as single vision, bifocal, trifocal, and progressive lenses, in accordance with the requirements of the Statement of Work (SOW). It is estimated that Request for Proposal (RFP) 36C24221R0056 will be available for download from the Contract Opportunities website at https://beta.sam.gov/ on or about April 21, 2021. No hardcopies will be sent. Questions received prior to issuance of the RFP will not be addressed. Once the RFP is issued, questions must be submitted in accordance with the instructions listed in the RFP. If warranted, responses to inquiries will be incorporated into a written amendment posted to the Contract Opportunities website at https://beta.sam.gov/. Verbal questions and/or phone calls will not be addressed. Offerors are encouraged and are responsible for routinely checking the Contract Opportunities website for any solicitation amendments that may be issued throughout the proposal period. This requirement will be solicited as a Total Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) set-aside. The anticipated North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code is 339115 Ophthalmic Goods Manufacturing, Small Business Size Standard of 1000 Employees. Prospective Contractors are reminded that in accordance with FAR 4.11 they shall be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM) database and shall complete electronic annual representations and certifications in SAM prior to award of a contract. SAM is located at http://www.sam.gov and consolidated the capabilities of CCR/FedReg, ORCA, and EPLS. There is NO cost to use SAM. NOTE: Please ensure that your SAM registration indicates this NAICS code if you are interested in the requirement. The purpose of Amendment 0001 is to correct/clarify the Set Aside Category. The Set-Aside was inadvertently left blank in Contract Opportunities nor did the SF1449 in the solicitation document show the correct set-aside. This is a Total Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) set-aside. Please see Amendment 0001 and corrected solicitation for additional details.
