Space Force releases NSSL Phase 3 Lane 1 RFP
On October 4, the U.S. Space Force (USSF) posted a request for proposals (RFP) for National Security Space Launch (NSSL) Phase 3 Lane 1. Proposals are due by 3:00 p.m. Pacific on December 15.
The USSF Space Systems Command’s (SSC) operational imperative is to deliver national security space capability to the warfighter to deter/defeat current, emerging, and future threats. The NSSL Phase 3 approach is to provide assured access to space for the integrated space architecture at affordable prices. The Phase 3 Acquisition Strategy consists of a dual-lane approach with two separate contract types to fulfill program and national security requirements.
This RFP is for the Phase 3 Lane 1 procurement only.
The Government intends to competitively award multiple award Indefinite-Delivery Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contracts. These IDIQ contracts will have a five (5)-year basic ordering period and a 5-year option ordering period. The Government will reopen the original IDIQ solicitation on an annual basis to on-ramp emerging providers or systems.
The NAICS code and size standard are 481212 and 1,500 employees, respectively. Small Businesses interested in subcontracting opportunities are encouraged to contact the launch service providers directly.
