On March 9, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Army Geospatial Center (AGC) posted a request for information for geospatial research, integration, development and support (GRIDS) III. Responses are due no later than 12:00pm EST on April 8.
The anticipated formal solicitation is for an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) with a maximum value of $200M, over a five year ordering period. This RFI/Sources Sought is NOT a request for proposals, nor does it restrict the Government as to the ultimate acquisition approach. Therefore, we invite any size business concerns to provide a capability statement in response to this RFI/Sources Sought.
The AGC has a world-wide requirement. There is a need to acquire special skill sets, systems engineering, and technical services to accomplish its mission, which is to coordinate, integrate and synchronize geospatial information requirements and standards across the Army; develop and field geospatial-enterprise enabled systems and capabilities to the Army and the Department of Defense; and to provide direct geospatial support and product to Warfighters. The services to be procured are non-personal and are not inherently Government functions. Activities to be performed include Research, Applied Research and Development, Verification and Validation, Integration, Testing, Support of Geospatial Systems and Services, Sensor(s) Development, System Engineering, Integration, Materiel Fabrication, Experimentation, Management Assistance and Operational Support of Geospatial Technologies. Valid domain areas include Topographic and Geospatial Engineering, Military Intelligence, Mission Command, Modeling and Simulation, Sustainment, Maintenance and Special Operations.
Feedback addressing the clarity, feasibility, scope and potential alternative means of meeting the Government’s requirement is sought. The anticipated North American Industry Classification System Code (NAICS) for these requirements is 541712. The business size standard for this NAICS is 500 employees. Your response should identify your business size (large or small) in relation to this NAICS Code.
