Army posts SOCOM follow-on RFI
On March 15, the U.S. Army posted a request for information for SOCOM follow-on support. Responses are due by 4:00 p.m. Eastern on April 2.
Program Background: On behalf of Project Manager (PM) Sensors Aerial Intelligence (SAI), Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG) is submitting this request for information. PM SAI is currently providing full spectrum support to the Special Operations Command (SOCOM) for operation and logistic support of deployed aircraft and PME, including aircraft and PME maintenance, training, sensor operations and field service. Additionally, the full spectrum support includes program management, system engineering, integration and testing, program security, information assurance, and property accountability. Current support is being provided by Adams Communication, Engineering and Technology (ACET) Contract No. W15P7T-10-D-D420/KZ02 and expires in June 2020. The Government is in the initial phase of developing the acquisition strategy for the continuation of this support to SOCOM.
PM SAI’s requirement is to provide continued Aerial Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (AISR) Operation and Support for SOCOM aircraft and prime mission equipment (PME) deployed Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS). Additionally, the support requires that engineering efforts may be conducted by the contractor that includes, the design, integration, test and evaluation of both aircraft and sensor capabilities resulting from obsolescence to new emerging requirements. The current Performance Work Statement being used in support of SOCOM is contained in Attachment 1 and is provided for guidance and the typical tasks required. Note: The Government does not own the Technical Data Packages for any of the A/C or PME. The support required could be provided worldwide and to all Combatant Commanders. Currently, the support being provided is primarily to CENTCOM and AFRICOM.
