Army INSCOM posts presolicitation information for EWIR acquisition
On May 17, the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command released a presolicitation notice for Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming (EWIR) Analysis, Production, and Process Support (Solicitation Number: W911W5-16-R-0001). The tentative posting date for the solicitation is May 31.
This presolicitation notice, in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation 5.204, is issued by the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) to announce the intention to issue solicitation RFP W911W5-16-R-0001 for Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming (EWIR) Analysis, Production and Process Support.
The acquisition strategy is to award a single contract for Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming (EWIR) Analysis, Production and Process Support services. The contemplated contract vehicle is an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with a five-year ordering period and maximum ceiling of $36M.
This requirement is for expertise, analysis, production, research, development, and process support to the Technical Electronic Intelligence (TechELINT) Branch (IANG-STS-TE) of the U.S. Army National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) in every aspect of Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming (EWIR) Intelligence Mission Data (IMD) and EWIR Database (EWIRDB) production. This effort will require the Contractor to provide a wholly self-contained, end-to-end, EWIR IMD production process using the Next Generation EWIRDB (NGES) construct and associated toolsets. The Contractor shall perform specific tasks in the areas of information gathering, data reduction, signals analysis, engineering assessment, product preparation and production process enhancement that shall support NGIC’s efforts to accomplish nationally mandated EWIR production and enable NGIC’s TechELINT Branch to realize significant improvements in production quantity, quality and efficiency. The estimated period of performance is September 2016 to September 2021.
During the contract period, NGIC personnel will identify Electronic Warfare Integrated Reprogramming Database (EWIRDB) production tasks and the Contracting Office will negotiate and issue individual task orders to the Contractor to complete them.
Additionally, the contract will allow basic research into advanced electronic, electro-optic, and weapon system technologies. Based upon these technical, engineering, and analytical examinations, the contractor shall prepare technical reports, create and maintain EWIR IMD models, and submit regular status reports. Such reports may include results of test measurements, engineering judgments, technology assessments, signals analyses, and conclusions of devices’ operability and/or operational effectiveness. Results are usually held at the SECRET level, but may be at a higher level classification.
