This requirement is for scientific computing operations, computational analysis and tool development, knowledge and program management activities, system services and digital production, and advanced data analytics.
Selection for award will be made to the offeror whose proposal is rated highest based upon best value (tradeoff) procedures. Proposals will be evaluated in the areas of technical/management capability, small business participation plan, cost/price, security, supply chain risk, and past performance. Virginia Contracting Activity plans to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for this effort on or around 1 October 2019 (this date is subject to change). The RFP will be posted to FEDBIZOPPS at https://www.fbo.gov. A draft RFP will not be available for this RFI.
The Government anticipates issuing a single-award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) type contract, whereby funds are obligated by issuance of individual Task Orders. The resulting contract will have provisions for Cost-Plus-Fixed-Fee, Firm-Fixed-Price and Time-and-Material Task Orders.
