JSMC Comment Matrix - Attachment 0003 JSMC Questionnaire - Attachment 0002 JSMC DRAFT SOW - Attachment 0001 Background: Army Contracting Command - Warren intends to issue a competitive Request for Proposal (RFP) W56HZV-18-R-0004 for the Operation and Maintenance (O&M) of the Joint Systems Manufacturing Center (JSMC), located in Shawnee Township, Ohio. The Government formerly provided information for Industry Day and conducted market research under W56HZV-17-R-JSMC, however the anticipated RFP will be issued under the new solicitation number W56HZV-18-R-0004. The JSMC is a Government-Owned, Contract-Operated (GOCO) facility owned by the Department of the Army. On 29 August 2017, the Government held an Industry Day at JSMC to provide industry overview of the anticipated contracting approach and to solicit feedback. The anticipated scope of work presented at the Industry Day was for a single Facility Operator and Maintainer of JSMC for all buildings and Government-owned equipment. Revised Anticipated Contracting Approach: Due to affordability issues, the DRAFT Scope of Work (SOW) has been revised and de-scoped from what was presented at the Industry Day. The anticipated scope of work has shifted from a single Facility Operator and Maintainer to a dual Facility Operator and Maintainer of JSMC. The dual Facility Operator and Maintainer will consist of the current production Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS), and the other contractor will be selected as a result of a full and open competition for this effort. The current production OEM will continue to utilize, operate, and maintain certain buildings as well as production machinery. This revised approach will require close coordination between the awardee and the OEM. The OEM will continue to maintain these certain production buildings and production equipment. The awardee will maintain the remainder of the facility and the equipment, in accordance with the DRAFT SOW. The revised anticipated SOW still includes the Armament Retooling and Manufacturing Support (ARMS) Initiative to include those areas that the awardee is responsible for. The objective of the ARMS Initiative at JSMC is to fully utilize the infrastructure. The Government intends to conduct a full and open source selection for this procurement. The evaluation criteria is anticipated to be a Best Value Tradeoff source selection, with the evaluation factors consisting of: Cost, Past Performance, Small Business, and Technical. All evaluation factors and their relative importance will be disclosed in the RFP. At this time, the timeline for release of the solicitation, receipt of proposals, evaluation, and award is unknown, pending the Governments decision regarding a final contracting approach. Purpose: The purpose of this announcement is to gage interest and solicit feedback concerning this effort, which will assist the Government in developing a final contracting approach. Attachments: Provided with this announcement are the revised DRAFT SOW - Attachment 0001, a Questionnaire - Attachment 0002, and a Comment Matrix - Attachment 0003. The intent of the Questionnaire and the Comment Matrix is to receive more structured feedback on the revised anticipated DRAFT SOW. Response Format: Only electronic responses are requested. Responses to the Questionnaire shall be submitted in PDF format, and responses to the Comment Matrix shall be submitted in Microsoft Excel format. All responses shall be submitted to the JSMC mailbox, usarmy.detroit.acc.mbx.wrn-jsmc-ss@mail.mil by 22 December 2017.

DO NOT use periods in the file name of the attachments. For example, "File1.2017.11.28.PDF" will be rejected by the system. All material submitted in response to this DRAFT SOW must be unclassified and properly marked. The Government will post updated information on the JSMC Operator and Maintainer effort as necessary. Interested parties are responsible to keep themselves informed, so it is important to visit Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) periodically to ensure that you have the most current information.
