UPDATE:14 SEPT 2021- Paragraph 2 language addedin bold. UPDATE CORRECTION: 10 SEPT 2021-The Additional Information section language below was updated in bold. UPDATE: Advanced Planning Notice for Information Purposes Only 10 September 2021 THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL SUBMISSIONS. Commander, Fleet Readiness Center (COMFRC), Patuxent River, MD, solicitation number N6852022R0001 will be issued to initiate competitive source selection and award an Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract (termed as LOGEN) to one Prime contractor in support of Fleet Readiness Centers (FRCs) Southeast (SE), East (E) and Southwest (SW) Fleet Support Teams (FSTs) and maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) group initiatives to provide required life cycle logistics and engineering support services. Each FRC depot operates in a cooperative environment, in which personnel are assigned to support Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) program offices and fleet customers in support of logistics, engineering and maintenance programs that benefit all type/model/series (T/M/S) aircraft and enterprise teams, providing full-spectrum aircraft maintenance operations to maintain high-performance tactical aircraft in support of war fighter readiness, as well as ensuring peak operational readiness for all supported activities. The singular contract approach moves away from site-specific sustainment logistics and engineering contracts to one consolidated contract that will integrate sustainment support to all primary FRC sites. The purpose of a consolidated acquisition approach is to ensure alignment of the integral and close relationships of sustainment logistics and engineering, as described by the Product Support Manager (PSM) Guidebook as part of the 12 Integrated Product Support (IPS) Elements. COMFRCs goal is to centralize organizational accountability, processes, and support for efficiency. Aside from the individual programs, numerous mission programs supported by COMFRC are integrally related in that they share common approaches to Fleet Support logistics and engineering products and processes across the naval aviation community. The Security Classificationof the IDIQ will be at Secret level. The scope of the first consolidated LOGEN contract for FRC sites includes sustainment engineering and logistic support services located at FRCSE Jacksonville, FL; engineering support services located at FRCE Cherry Point, NC and logistics support located at FRCSW North Island, CA and the Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Command (NATEC) located at San Diego, CA, as well as detachments and remote sites inside the Continental United States (CONUS). It will not include FRCE logistics(Current Contract N6852021D0002) or FRCSW engineering(RFPs N6852021R3000- E2/C2and N6852021R3002- F/A-18,due to award in 2022), which are both amply covered by individual contracts until 2026. Therefore, the intended LOGEN contract will align to a 2026 expiration, at which time the phase two consolidated Enterprise level follow-on contract is planned to be solicited and awarded to cover truly all sustainment logistics and engineering support at all primary FRC sites. LOGEN will provide direct life cycle engineering, logistics, technical and production services for various T/M/S aircraft. Individual task orders (TOs) will be issued to support new weapon systems, system modifications, Foreign Military Sales (FMS), and support systems, including related equipment as they become known. Set-Aside Status: The acquisition will be competed as a small business set-aside based on market research and responses to the sources sought notice posted to beta.sam.gov on 5 March 2021. Contract Type: The anticipated contract is a single-award IDIQ with Cost-Plus Fixed-Fee (CPFF) Term form (level of effort) for labor and Cost for travel and incidental material contract line items (CLINs).

(ASI) Additional Information: The Draft RFP is anticipated to be released in early December 2021 with DRAFT Section L,without Section M. The Final RFP is scheduled for release by end ofJanuary2021.

Original Notice A source sought was released 5 March 2021 for the Commander, Fleet Readiness Center Logistics and Engineering Technical Support Services requirement (Statement of Work Attached).The Contracting Officer analyzed the Governments market research, of which the Sources Sought was a component, and found that the Sources Sought responses support a small-business set-aside solicitation for the Enterprise level COMFRC logistics and engineering support. However, approvals have not yet been obtained to consolidate the incumbent site-level requirements into a single source IDIQ as required by FAR SubPart 16.504 in lieu of utilizing the SeaPort MAC or a stand-alone Enterprise-level COMFRC MAC for logistics and engineering. Therefore, the Government is requesting feedback from industry on the benefits and/or risks impacting performance if the COMFRC logistics and engineering support requirements were solicited as separate Seaport Orders, one for engineering (FRCSE & FRCE) and another for logistics (FRCSE & FRCSW). The Government is also requesting feedback from industry regarding benefits and/or risks associated with awarding an Enterprise-level COMFRC MAC for the logistics and engineering support. The incumbent contracts currently about 50 active task orders combined supporting multiple Naval Aviation and FRC site-level programs. This request for information is part of the acquisition planning phase. As strategy approvals are obtained to determine a solicitation and award schedule, the Government will update this announcement. Please provide responses by 02 June 2021.
