US Federal Contractor Registration is reporting the release of the Range Support Services Solicitation in California posted to FedBizOpps (FBO) on June 22, 2015. Range Support Services Solicitation does not yet have a current response date. Every business interested in bidding on the Range Support Services Solicitation must be properly registered in the SAM Registration, as well as have the North American Industry Classification System codes 561210 -- Facilities Support Services, and 561 -- Administrative and Support Services filed in their SAM account/vendor profile.

Below is a copy of the Range Support Services Solicitation as originally posted to FedBizOpps (FBO) on June 22, 2015:

This Request for Information is to encourage early industry involvement for the Range Support Services (RSS) II contract. This is for informational purposes only and information contained herein may change as the strategy is finalized. Services are to be performed at the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR). Contract award is anticipated by June 2017 with a contract transition start date of 01 July 2017.

The Government is anticipating release of the RSS II Request for Proposal (RFP) Fall of 2015. This will be a full and open, two (2) phase source selection, utilizing Best ValueTrade-off source selection procedures in accordance with FAR Part 15. The Government is encouraging teaming arrangements from offerors. Only the three (3) most highly evaluated offeror teams will be provided the RFP in Phase 2. Based upon previous industry feedback, each offeror team will be provided no more than twenty (20) program briefed personnel positions for proposal development in Phase 2.

The estimated value of this acquisition is $3.6B. The Government anticipates a single award of a Requirements contract. (While the Government will abide by the intent of the Requirements contract wherein the contractor will receive the preponderance of the work identified in the PWS, the Government will reserve the right to meet mission needs, a large in-flux of customer requirements due to DoD shifting priorities, or work that falls under a governance structure, such as construction, through other means of support e.g. government or through other contracts).

The resulting contract will have a potential 16-year period of performance (including options and award terms) plus be a 3-month transition period beginning on 01 July 2017. The pricing arrangements will be Firm Fixed Price (FFP) (transition in), Cost Plus Award Fee (CPAF) (range support services -- organic labor (e.g. prime plus teaming partners)), and Cost Reimbursable (CR) (travel, material, non-organic labor sub-contracts, and other direct costs).

This requirement will contain a small business subcontracting goal of greater than or equal to 25% of total contract dollars.
