No.DocReferenceComment/QuestionGovernment Response1RFPDo you know if doing this work would create an OCI and thus preclude the contractor from performing any of the work associated with “program execution” (vs the “design of the organization” scope in this solicitation)?I guess, asked another way, could you perform this work and still be an SETA/SE&I for SMC programs/Corps?IAW the RFP, "In accordance with FAR 9.5, Organizational and Consultant Conflicts of Interest, the Contracting Officer has analyzed the planned acquisition and determined that no known actual or potential Organizational Conflict of Interest (OCI) situations exist with respect to this solicitation.The Offeror shall perform its own OCI analysis and submit the results of that analysis as part of its proposal. Specifically, the Offeror shall analyze the planned acquisition for actual or potential OCI situations associated with its or any of its teammate’s or subcontractor’s performance under any contract it or any of its teammates or subcontractors has been or may be awarded by any federal agency or other entity."2RFPDoes the Government value bidders who had familiarity and experience with the current SETA and SE&I environment at SMC? With this solicitation, the Government is seeking contractors with demonstrated expertise in organizational design and transformation and experience advising clients in both government and commercial industry that are comparable in size and complexity to SMC (i.e., approximately 6000 personnel and an annual budget of approximately $9B). While experience with SMC may be useful, the focus is on the organizational design and transformation expertise and mixed government/industry experience. As with SMC 2.0, insight from key stakeholders such as our civilians, military, and contractors will be critical to defining our future organization. Such insight will be part of our transformation process but is not a requirement for this solicitation.31449Is this requirement follow on work to an original scope of work? If so, please advise on the incumbent.This is a unique effort and not a follow-on to the SMC 2.0 effort. 4PWSAre there specific qualifications, certifications, clearances, or experiences required for personnel performing under this requirement?With this solicitation, the Government is seeking contractors with demonstrated expertise in organizational design and transformation and experience advising clients in both government and commercial industry that are comparable in size and complexity to SMC (i.e., approximately 6000 personnel and an annual budget of approximately $9B). There are no specific qualifications, certifications, or experiences required of individual personnel proposed to support this effort. The work will be accomplished at the unclassified level. 5RFPThe draft RFP and PWS does not indicate a place of performance. However, the Industry Day Announcement indicates the place of performance as El Segundo, CA. Please confirm the place of performance for this requirement and if supporting this requirement from remote locations is allowed.The Government's transformation team will be primarily located at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, CA. The Government will establish conference room space and hot desks for use by the entire transformation team as needed. However, the Government will not be providing office space for all proposed personnel. Contractor may propose to work from other locations so long as the requirements of the PWS can be met. Travel is expected to be unique to each Offeror's proposed approach and should be included in FFP. Further, COVID-19 related health restrictions may require telework during some or all of the period of performance. Contractor must be able to respond flexibly to these conditions. 6PWSDeliverablesWill the government provide additional details on expectations and requirements for “contractor-provided telecom lines”? Given that the contract will initially be telework, is this deliverable in reference to digital communications platforms for shared data and meetings? Or is this a broader requirement for the new Field Command? Based on feedback from Industry Day, this requirement was removed from the PWS. 7PWSDeliverablesWill software tools, including the Dashboard, be considered an ODC?This requirement has been removed from the RFP. Requirement revised as follows: "Overall integration and change management: The Contractor will help define and develop interactive metrics and dashboards to help leadership assess progress and trends to assist the field command team quantify the impact of the change and workload created by the initiatives for key stakeholders and de-risk mission delivery by re-phasing initiatives or deploying targeted change management plans. Based on the analysis, the joint Contractor-government team will integrate the field command lines of effort and balance resources required to manage the portfolio of initiatives."8RFPFactor 1During the Industry Day, the Contract Office Technical Director indicated that there was no need for teams. However, the draft RFP Factor 1 states “Proposal submissions under this Subfactor shall include a proposed organization structure and any prime/subcontractor or teaming arrangements.” Will the source selection committee discount teamed offerors?With this solicitation, the Government is seeking contractors with demonstrated expertise in organizational design and transformation and experience advising clients in both government and commercial industry that are comparable in size and complexity to SMC (i.e., approximately 6000 personnel and an annual budget of approximately $9B). The Government does not anticipate significant subcontracting opportunities on this effort. However, this does not preclude an offeror from proposing subcontractors or teammates. Proposing subcontractors or teammates will not adversely affect the evaluation.9RFPFactor 1May a subcontractor be added to the contract following award? There is nothing to preclude the addition of a subcontractor after contract award. However, Offerors are encouraged to propose their best team in the proposal. The Government will not re-open the FFP. Further, the contractor must be prepared to begin performance no later than 2 weeks after contract award and be able to support the Government's aggressive schedule for the transformation.10RFPDelivery InformationWill the government please clarify the exact work location for this contract?The Government's transformation team will be primarily located at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, CA. The Government will establish conference room space and hot desks for use by the entire transformation team as needed. However, the Government will not be providing office space for all proposed personnel. Contractor may propose to work from other locations so long as the requirements of the PWS can be met. Travel is expected to be unique to each Offeror's proposed approach and should be included in FFP. Further, COVID-19 related health restrictions may require telework during some or all of the period of performance. Contractor must be able to respond flexibly to these conditions. 11RFPDelivery InformationIf the base re-opens, will all contract staff be required to be on-site full-time? Or will the government allow some contractors to telework, or remain in DC, to provide liaison support to USSF HQS? The Government's transformation team will be primarily located at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, CA. The Government will establish conference room space and hot desks for use by the entire transformation team as needed. However, the Government will not be providing office space for all proposed personnel. Contractor may propose to work from other locations so long as the requirements of the PWS can be met. Travel is expected to be unique to each Offeror's proposed approach and should be included in FFP. Further, COVID-19 related health restrictions may require telework during some or all of the period of performance. Contractor must be able to respond flexibly to these conditions. There is no requirement to provide liaison support to USSF HQS. 12PWSOrganization StrategyHow many SMC staff members are expected to provide input through interviews or other mechanisms for this transformation?The Government expects the organizational design and consulting contractor to provide recommendations on both the mechanisms to collect feedback and the numbers of personnel to target. 13PWSOrganization StrategyWho is the government champion leading the transformation effort? The primary point of contact for this acquisition is the Contracting Officer, Capt Alejandro Sena. Once a contract is awarded, the Government will provide other key points of contact with whom the contractor will interact.14RFPTechnical SubFactor 2, PersonnelWill the government consider removing the requirement for commercial experience with organizational transformation? This requirement may lead to bias against companies who have successfully managed large government organizational transformations and have a better understanding of government requirements but do not perform commercial work.No. The Government is looking to leverage both industry and government best practices as it stands up the US Space Force. 15RFPTechnical SubFactor 3, ExperienceWill the government consider revising its definition of large-scale organizations? The revenue and personnel listed are subjective numbers.No, the definition of a "large-scale organization" defined in RFP is representative of the Space and Missile Systems Center which will form a component of the USSF Field Command.16RFPTechnical SubFactor 3, ExperienceThe draft RFP requests “2 past examples of successful relevant organizational transformation”.
