Air Force posts request for industry feedback on UAS ISR acquisition strategy
On February 8, the U.S. Air Force released a market research survey for unmanned aircraft systems intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (Solicitation Number: FA4890-17-R-0015). Responses are due by 4:00pm EST on February 17.
Air Combat Command, Acquisition Management Integration Center (ACC AMIC), Joint Base Langley-Eustis, VA, anticipates procuring a contract for the provision of services for Land-Based Unmanned Aircraft Systems Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Services (UAS ISR). As part of the government’s continuous information exchange with Industry in formulating the acquisition strategy, the government requests your assistance.
The government is not requesting technical and/or management proposals at this time. Your response to the questions below will be used solely for planning purposes in the formulating the acquisition strategy.
- How much transition time do you require (i.e., from contract award to full performance start at the sites) to complete all pre-deployment functions?
- How could we make the Draft PWS more performance-based?
- What areas of trade-off between price and technical performance would you suggest?
Do you possess a currently valid UAS Airworthiness Certification issued from a Civil and/or Military Airworthiness Authority?
