4. Scope. Work under this PWS will consist of the effort required to provide NCTAMS LANT leased
telecommunications services as listed in Attachment II – Pricing Spreadsheet; at Navy sites listed in
paragraph 2.

Task 1: Provide basic dial-tone service (Business Lines).

Task 2: Provide 1.544Mb (T1) point to point circuits.

Task 3: Provide Primary Rate Interface (PRI) circuits.

Task 4: Provide Metro-E - Fast Ethernet service. The following levels of service are required 10 Mbps,
30Mbps, 50Mbps, and 100Mbps speeds.

Task 5: Installation of new services (Non-Recurring Cost) as required. Installation of new services, if
required, will be identified in individual task orders.

5. General Requirements:

5.1 The contractor shall provide the telecommunications requirement as defined in paragraph 4.
Specific requirements are identified in Attachment I -List of Services Details.

5.2 Availability: The contractor shall provide an average circuit and PRI availability of at least 99.9%
for those portions of circuits that are not government provided (i.e., government copper or fiber pairs
provided to permit the extension of a circuit from a base demark to the service delivery point).
Availability will be calculated by averaging data for up to ten circuits with the individual circuit
availability derived by dividing total up time by total time for the period measured.

5.3 Approvals and Permits: The contractor/telecommunications provider (TP) is responsible for
obtaining all approvals and permits necessary to provide this service. Inability of contractor/TP to
obtain any such approvals or permits shall not be a valid reason for not meeting service dates or
performance metrics. Failure of a contractor/TP to obtain any approval or permit necessary to provide
this service may result in a termination of this contract by Government for default at no cost to
Government and/or receipt of a negative past performance rating.

5.4 Scheduled Outages: The contractor shall utilize approved alternate or spare facilities whenever
possible to eliminate or minimize scheduled service interruptions. In the event that a scheduled service
interruption cannot be avoided, contractor/TP shall obtain approval from NCTAMS LANT External
Support Department (ESD) or site base communications office (BCO), before initiating any scheduled
outage. To obtain approval, a written “circuit release request” must be submitted to the appropriate
BCO, no later than 21 calendar days prior to requested circuit release date. When an interruption of
service is required to correct hazardous or degraded conditions the contractor must submit an
emergency request stating the hazardous condition and obtain acknowledgement/response by the ESD
or BCO official, 48-hours prior to the event. The request from contractor/TP must include the
information as identified in paragraph 5.6 and the contractor must identify the hazardous or degraded
conditions that exist which preclude providing the U.S. Government with 21-day advance notice.

5.5 In emergency situations when loss of life or property is at risk the contractor is authorized to take
immediate action. Contractor/TP must make every reasonable attempt to notify the Government points
of contact and coordinate arrangements for the service interruption to the maximum extent possible.
Within 5 business days of an emergency interruption, contractor/TP must submit circuit release request
to the ESD or BCO official (after –the-event) and identify the emergency conditions that existed
which precluded providing the Government with 21-day advance notice.

5.6 Circuit Release Request must include following information:

 Contractor/TP Requesting circuit release and name and phone number of contractor/TP

representative responsible for managing circuit release.

 Order number of circuit for which release is being requested.
 Date and inclusive times of scheduled circuit release, along with an alternate circuit release date

and time.

 Purpose of scheduled circuit release.
 Statement indicating all equipment, parts, and/or supplies required to complete action are on-

hand, or their expected delivery date.

 Statement indicating all avenues alternate facilities, spare facilities that are available.
 Estimated maximum recovery time to restore circuit. Failure of contractor/TP to obtain an
approved circuit release prior to initiating a scheduled outage may result in Government
termination of this contract for default at no cost to Government and/or receipt of a negative
performance rating.

5.7 Restoral Maintenance: Response requirements are defined below. The site BCO can change
response requirements from emergency to routine and required response times.

Commercial business lines are defined as routine services. All other contractor provided services are
defined as priority services.

Response Time/Routine Outage Call: The contractor shall undertake remote troubleshooting within
two (2) hours of receipt of notification of outage. If not cleared remotely, the contractor shall perform
on-site troubleshooting not later than the next business day. The site contracting officer, contracting
officer representative or alternate (KO/COR/ACOR) can provide relief from the next day on-site
requirement based on user’s operational impact.

Priority Outage/Call: The contractor shall undertake remote troubleshooting within one (1) hour of
receipt of notification of outage. If not cleared remotely, the contractor shall perform on-site
troubleshooting not later than four (4) hours if the outage is limited to a single circuit. When an entire
base or command is without service, the contractor shall respond the same day. The KO/COR/ACOR
can provide relief from the same day on-site requirement based on user’s operational impact.

5.8 Trouble Reporting : The contractor shall provide a 24/7 Trouble Ticket reporting telephone line in
which the repair tickets for services identified in this PWS are opened, tracked or updated.

6. Material and Equipment:

Contractor Furnished Material/Equipment: The contractor shall provide all materials required to
