Background

The Cross Mission Ground & Communications Enterprise (ECX) within Space Systems Command (SSC) provides satellite command & control and data transport services to the United States Space Force (USSF) in support of global military operations. With a wide range of strategic and operational objectives, the communication of organizational direction, goals, and current status with other government entities and industry partners is critical. The various SSC corps need to conduct monthly conferences and industry days but high-capacity classified spaces purpose-built for conferences do not currently exist at Los Angeles AFB. This Statement of Work (SOW) identifies the Contractor facility and service requirements of the desired classified conference space.

The government is interested in finding a best value in providing dedicated dates at an existing facility within a five mile radius of SSC El Segundo, California as well as corresponding services to support SSC conferences and industry days on a monthly basis. In addition, the government hopes to receive feedback on changes that industry believes should be incorporated into the PWS. As a part of the RFI, the government encourages the respondees to identify or suggest improvements to existing CCSS processes, operating procedures, systems, or applications.

Responses Due: 13 May 2022.

Limitations: N/A
