On May 16, the U.S. Navy Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific issued a presolicitation notice for Cyberspace Science, Research, Engineering, and Technology Integration (Solicitation Number: N66001-18-R-0001).
16 May 2018: The Department of the Navy, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SSC Pacific) intends to issue solicitation No. N66001-18-R-0001 for professional and technical services to support Cyberspace Science, Research, Engineering, and Technology Integration.
SSC Pacific, as the principle Navy Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) and Acquisition Center for Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) and Information Operations (IO) is responsible for functions that include: mission analysis, assessment and development of technology base, basic and applied research, demonstration of technology, engineering in support of production, support to operating forces; supporting doctrine, policy, and strategy development; and integration of numerous National and Tactical systems in the area of Cyberspace Operations. To meet these responsibilities, SSC Pacific requires advice, assistance, coordination and products necessary to support operational planning, assessment, integration, execution and technology development to assure superiority for the warfighter in the cyberspace domain. The full scope of this requirement is anticipated to include: technology assessment, development and transition; requirements analysis; systems engineering; operational and technical support; exercise and experimentation support; software development and prototyping; hardware development and prototyping; modeling and simulation; training support; security engineering/cybersecurity.
This is a follow-on requirement to two Multiple Award Contracts (MACs) of the same title: Cyberspace Science, Research, Engineering and Technology Integration. The existing MACs were solicited with one solicitation and include one MAC (Unrestricted MAC) that was competed on an unrestricted basis that covers the full scope of the requirement and another MAC (Small Business MAC) that covers a portion of the requirement that was competed among small businesses only. The incumbent contract numbers for the Unrestricted MAC are N66001-16-D-0439 through -0445 and the incumbent contractors are Booz Allen Hamilton Inc., Leidos Inc., Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation, Raytheon Company, Science Applications International Corporation, Scientific Research Corporation, and Vencore Inc. The ordering period of the predecessor Unrestricted MAC is 19 September 2016 to 18 September 2021. The incumbent contract numbers for the Small Business MAC are N66001-17-D-0114 through -0117 and the incumbent contractors are Avanti Technologies Inc., Millennium Corporation, Sentar Inc., and Vector Planning & Services Inc. The ordering period of the predecessor Small Business MAC is 08 March 2017 to 07 March 2022.
This follow-on procurement will be satisfied through two separate solicitations. One solicitation will cover the full scope of the requirement and will be competed on an unrestricted (i.e., full and open) basis. The second solicitation will cover a portion of the requirement and will be competed among small businesses only. N66001-18-R-0001 is strictly a follow-on for the Unrestricted MAC. The full scope of the requirement is described in the attached Draft SOW. Both large and small businesses can compete for the Unrestricted multiple award contract (MAC). The follow-on for the Small Business MAC will be solicited at a future date estimated in late 2019.
