Notice of Intent to Award Sole Source Procurement

Title: Mi-17 Flight Training System and Mi-17 Cockpit Procedures Trainer

Contract Vehicle: STOC II

Closing Date: May 16, 2013

Notice of Intent to Award Sole Source Procurement: U.S. ARMY PEO STRI Acquisition Center, intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of FAR 16.505(b)(2)(i) (C) The order must be issued on a sole-source basis in the interest of economy and efficiency because it is a logical follow-on to an order already issued under the contract, provided that all awardees were given a fair opportunity to be considered for the original order. PEO STRI intends to solicit and negotiate with the Fidelity Technologies Corporation of 2504 Kutztown Rd., Reading, PA.19605-2501 for the manufacture, production, and delivery to the Afghanistan Security Forces (ASF) for one Mi-17 V5 Flight Training Device (FTD), one option for one additional Mi-17 V5 FTD, and one Mi-17 V5 Cockpit Procedures Trainer (CPT) in support of the Afghanistan National Army Special Operations Command (ANASOC), Afghanistan Special Mission Wing (SMW) in accordance with appendix I to enclosure (1) and enclosure (2). The CPT delivery schedule (defined as ready for training) is 6 months after contract award (ACA). The FTD delivery schedule is 9 months ACA. The Visual Database and spares shall be delivered with their respective trainer. Twelve months of CLS shall be provided for each trainer.

The Mi-17 V5 FTD is a training device that provides pilot training for the majority of tasks on the Mi-17 V5 critical task list. It is used for pilot training of both normal and emergency procedures prescribed in the Mi-17 V5 aircraft manuals and far exceeds the FAA requirements for certification of a level 5 FTD. This device is the same FTD as was procured from Fidelity Technologies previously on Contract W900KK-09-D-0320 DO 0002 with minor modifications to the cockpit layout. Spare parts and training for the FTD are also included in this proposed action.

The Mi-17 V5 CPT is a training device that provides basic familiarization and layout of the Mi-17 V5 cockpit. It is used for student procedural training of both normal and emergency procedures prescribed in the Mi-17 aircraft manuals. This device is similar to the Mi-17 FTD procured from FTC on Contract W900KK-09-D-0320 DO 0002 but differs in the scope of simulation capabilities and is of lesser fidelity. The CPT makes extensive use of touch screen displays rather than actual aircraft hardware. The CPT utilizes the same visual terrain data base as the Mi-17 FTD. The CPT also utilizes the same proprietary Image Generator (IG) as the FTD. The proprietary Instructor/Operator Station (IOS) will be a common interface as in the FTD. Spare parts and training for the CPT are also included in this proposed action.

This notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals. However, any responsible source who believes it is capable of meeting the requirement must submit their capabilities statement by the closing date of this notice to the POC listed below. Responses shall provide a description of the offeror’s ability to meet the Mi17 FTD and CPT program description, acquisition approach, and delivery schedule (listed in enclosure (1)). Companies should indicate whether they have previously deployed these Mi-17 trainers (how many, where, are they still in operation). The response shall include a Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) estimate for the requirement on a Firm Fixed-Price basis.

The offeror’s capability description should include documentation demonstrating that the offeror has adequate financial resources to perform the contract, or the ability to obtain them; considers all existing commercial and governmental business commitments; has a satisfactory record of integrity and business ethics; has the necessary organization, experience, accounting and operational controls, and technical skills, or the ability to obtain them; and has the necessary technical and management resources and facilities, or the ability to obtain them.

Responses shall be limited to three (3) pages or less, including all attachments.

The offeror’s capability statement may not include any new or non recurring design effort which shall be considered by the agency, only if received by the closing date and time of this notice. A determination not to compete the proposed requirement based upon the responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the government.
