NASA readies draft RFP for SEWP V
Thursday - 1/24/2013, 4:51pm EST
The space agency announced earlier this week it would release the draft request for proposals on or about Feb. 8, with a final solicitation scheduled for early summer.
SEWP V, which could have a ceiling of more than $10 billion, would have two main categories with four subcategories of products.
NASA said it would award contracts in Category A: computer systems/servers and subcategory A: computer-based systems.
It also would bring on contractors under Category B: complementary products, which include subcategories, such as mass-storage devices, server-support devices and networking, security and video and conferencing tools.
NASA wants to make the mass-storage devices a service-disabled veteran-owned business set aside and the server support services a small business set aside.
"Each of the groups has specific requirements and functional tasks that must be met by the offerings in that group. However, the potential usage of any group is broad and may be based on a variety of applications beyond the specific group definition," the notice on Fedbizopps.gov stated. "These groupings are to ensure that the government has a sufficient set of the best available tools for given tasks. The groupings do not imply either exclusive product offerings by the contractor nor do they restrict the government from making best value judgments as to which group to use to meet their specific requirements."
