On June 3, the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) issued a request for information (RFI) for Business and Technology Management Services (BATMAn) (Solicitation Number: FA9451-15-R-0029). Questions will be accepted until COB June 15. Responses to this RFI must be submitted no later than 3:00 PM MST on June 26.
Phillips Research Site (PRS) is the home of the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Space Vehicles (RV) and Directed Energy (RD) Directorates. The mission of the Space Vehicles Directorate is to develop space technologies that support evolving space related warfighter requirements. Primary areas of importance include but are not limited to communications, positioning, navigation, and timing, space cyber, space modeling and simulation, space evaluation and analysis assessments, defensive space control, space situational awareness, and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, as well as performing a variety of integrated space technology experiments. The mission of the Directed Energy Directorate is to develop advanced directed energy technologies that support evolving tactical and strategic warfighter requirements. Primary areas of importance include but are not limited to high-powered electromagnetics, laser systems, directed energy and electro-optics for space superiority, and directed energy weapons modeling and simulation.
PRS is looking for 8(a) organizations that have Top Secret (TS)/SCI capability to perform administrative, business, financial and staff related support for their technical and functional divisions, the business offices within the division, as well as individual projects, branches, and divisions on-site at Kirtland Air Force Base and their geographically separated units
PRS requires skilled administrative-type services for vital, non-research and development, activities to efficiently and effectively support both Directorates to successfully perform their technical missions. Both Directorates have combined equivalent non-research and development functions across the PRS in order to gain efficiency, achieve cost savings, and ensure continuity of operations across the Site. The majority of the anticipated task orders under this acquisition will require a Secret clearance; however, one task order currently envisioned requires the TS/SCI capability to perform its mission.
AFRL contemplates an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), five (5) year ordering period with one (1) basic year and four (4) option years, Firm-Fixed Price commercial contract with specific individual task orders issued by the Contracting Officer.
This RFI seeks information that will be used in determining a path forward in its goal to perform administrative and business services. The principle objective of this RFI is to receive information from industry that would administratively support AFRL RV and RD directorates.
