UPDATED December 28, 2020

Anticipated RFP release of HDTRA120R0006 and HDTRA120R0076 will be delayed by another week. Estimated release day is January 15, 2021, but may also be delayed into the following week.

UPDATED December 18, 2020

Reference and background material are posted here and are labeled as "Bidders Library Ref" to provide interested vendors with more background information about DTRA programs. These documents ARE NOT part of the RFP. This material is provided in response to industry day questions requesting more information about previous contracts and requirements and may be used as references. Future task order requirements may look similar but will not be exactly the same as previous contract requirements.

During the pre-RFP stage, all notices posted here are intended to apply to both HDTRA120R0006 and HDTRA120R0076. The final RFP will be issued under separate postings for each HDTRA120R0006 and HDTRA120R0076.

UPDATED November 24, 2020

The updated anticipated RFP release date, which is on or about January 6, 2021, applies to the solicitation for the Large Business Pool (HDTRA120R0006) and the Small Business Pool (HDTRA120R0076). DTRA plans to issue the solictiations for both pools at the same time.

In addition, a draft version of a Master Labor Rate Schedule applicable to the Small Business Pool draft RFP, HDTRA120R0076, is posted with this update.

UPDATED November 18, 2020

The anticipated release date of this RFP will be delayed to on or about January 6, 2021. We will continue to update this posting with draft materials and approved Bidder's Library materials. Bidder's Library materials may include previous SOWs and programmatic slide decks to help vendors understand the various DTRA missions.

Please note that the correct e-mail to send inquiries to is: dtra.belvoir.al.mbx.fbo-notices@mail.mil. There is a mistake on the draft RFP where two different email addresses are listed.

UPDATED November 13, 2020:

The questions and answers from Industry Day and the Draft RFP are now posted. In addition, we have posted draft versions of the Past Performance Questionnaires for both the Large and the Small Pool RFPs, the draft Past Performance Questionnaire Inventory, and revised drafts of the Statement of Objectives (SOO). The revisions to the SOO necessitated a separate SOO for the Large and Small Pool RFPs, and they are both attached. We are continuing to develop the draft versions of the remainder of the RFP attachments, and we will post them as soon as they are available.

UPDATED October 28,2020:

The Questions and Answers from Industry Day will not be posted this week. The Q&As will be posted within the next two weeks. Please continue to check this posting often. Additionally, we will post the following drafts/revisions as soon as they become available:
- SOO (to clarify the facility clearance requirement; set forth a revised scope for the small business pool; and further clarify the scope of AEMSS to exclude requirements from DTRA's RD Directorate)
- PPQ and PPQ inventory
- Small Business Commitment Template
- CDRLS
- HW/SW List for Sample TO 02

UPDATED October 22, 2020:

Per requests from multiple industry day attendees, attached is a list of interested vendors who consented to having their contact information shared. The document is named "AEMSS Interested Vendors".

Also, as discussed during industry day, DTRA will require proposals to be submitted via the Solicitation Portal, which is located in the Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment (PIEE) suite. In order to do so, vendors must be registered as a Proposal Manager in PIEE. In anticipation of this, attached are instructions on how to register for the Proposal Manager role in PIEE along with an attachment listing frequently asked questions regarding the registration process.

UPDATED August 12, 2020:

The Assessment, Exercise, and Modeling & Simulation Support (AEMSS) Acquisition Plan has been approved. DTRA will solicit the AEMSS requirement on a full and open competition basis with the intent of awarding a multiple-award indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract. Two (2) pools of contractors will be established: one large business pool and one small business pool. Each pool will consist of up to three IDIQ contracts awarded for a total of up to six (6). The ceiling will be $850 million and will be shared among the two (2) pools. The requirement will be competed under NAICS code 541330, Engineering Services , and the size standard of $41.5M for the Military and Aerospace Equipment and Military Weapons exception will apply. DTRA still anticipates releasing the draft RFP by the end of August.

UPDATED July 17, 2020:

The anticipated release of the draft Request for Proposal (RFP) has been changed to the end of August. Details for a virtual Industry Day will be announced along with the draft RFP release. All information and updates will be posted to this site.

UPDATED June 16, 2020:

The anticipated release of the draft Request for Proposal (RFP) has been changed to the last week of July. Details for a virtual Industry Day will be announced after the release of the draft RFP. All information and updates will be posted to this site.

UPDATED May 28, 2020:

In anticipation of approval of an acquisition approach that seeks the establishment of an IDIQ with two contractor pools, DTRA is hereby releasing and attaching to this announcement a draft Statement of Objectives (SOO) to address the full scope of the requirements it is seeking solutions for under this IDIQ. The draft SOO is notional and entirely dependent on the approval of the acquisition approach; as such, the draft SOO may be rescinded.

Currently, DTRA still anticipates release of the draft RFP during the last week of June. DTRA continues to look for suitable means to conduct an industry day in the current environment, which will most likely be virtual formats. At this point, the DTRA team is considering holding separate sessions with smaller groups of interested vendors. The details of which will be announced shortly after the release of the draft RFP.

UPDATED Apr 20, 2020:

The anticipated timeframe for the release of the draft Request for Proposal (RFP) has been changed to the last week of June, and we are continuing to explore various options for conducting an industry day after the release of the draft RFP. All information and updates will be posted to this site.

UPDATED Mar 18, 2020:

Due to the current environment, the AEMSS Industry Day is postponed indefinitely. DTRA is continuing to work on the requirement, but because of the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, we are unsure of when we will be able to host the industry day. Updates to the schedule will be posted to this site as soon as they are available.
