The Government thanks Industry for its questions and feedback on the draft Statement of Work (SOW) from the February 2023 Special Notice.

The Government is still assessing the feedback received and expects to post an updated SOW in late May 2023 along with a notional procurement timeline. Industry will have an opportunity to provide additional comments at that time.

The Government anticipates this requirement as a competitive small business set aside and has preference to use a strategic sourcing vehicle; however, the Government has not finalized its procurement strategy as market research continues to be underway. Upon completion, the Government will update industry accordingly. The Government also intends to hold a virtual industry day at a time/date To Be Determined.
