Army PEO IEW&S posts sources sought

On April 13, the U.S. Army posted a sources sought notice for PEO IEW&S Industrial Base Analysis (Solicitation Number: W909MY18RH007). Responses are due no later than 5:00 p.m. Eastern on May 14.

The US Army Contracting Command-Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG), Belvoir Division is seeking sources on behalf of the Program Executive Office, Intelligence Electronic Warfare and Sensors (PEO IEW&S) to provide timely assessments to assigned program offices. This Request for Information (RFI) is for informational purposes only. It is not a request for proposal and does not constitute any obligation by the Government to award a contract based on the findings of this RFI. The Government will not reimburse interested sources or respondents to notice, or any follow-on notice, for any costs incurred in association with this announcement or for subsequent exchanges of information. Proprietary information submitted in response to this Sources Sought shall be marked accordingly and will be protected when clearly identified as proprietary. The ideas presented in the white paper will be assessed by PEO IEW&S and ACC-APG for suitability of competition among small businesses.


Requirements will often be generated because of a critical weakness in a program status that has been raised to the highest levels of Army, Department of Defense and/or Congressional Leadership. Tasks must begin immediately, and recommendations must normally be made within 90 days. Recommendations must be suited for Senior Leader briefing and Product Manager implementation.

The Government has two immediate requirements that will need to be completed simultaneously. The first is to evaluate the pre-production and quality assurance activities of the Limited Interim Missile Warning System (LIMWS) leading up to the formal Production Readiness Review. The following tasks must be completed: conduct site assessments; identify critical assembly procedures; identify metrics; identify or assess supplier risks; conduct on-site independent assessment of pre-production activities and documentation at the prime and/or sub-tier supplier facilities. This review will result in a report to aid in the Milestone Decision Authority’s Production Decision. In order to influence the Production Decision, this study must begin within the next 90 days.

The second is to conduct an independent assessment of the operating model and governance for the Biometrics Enabling Capability (BEC) and the potential opportunities for cost savings and avoidance associated thereto. Product Manager (PdM) BEC requires an immediate set of analyses to assess the affordability of the BEC Increment 1 program to support Army decision making. The assessment will result in the development of potential system architecture courses of action (COAs) for the future BEC along with business case analyses, cost, benefit and risk analyses, cost models and cost saving initiatives. In order to inform Army Senior Leaders, this assessment must also begin within the next 90 days.
