THIS IS NOT AN RFQ AND IS NOT TO BE CONSTRUED AS A COMMITMENT BY THE GOVERNMENT.
The AFTC has appointed an Ombudsman to hear concerns from potential offerors relating to this acquisition.

When requested, the Ombudsman will maintain strict confidentiality as to the source of the concern. The Ombudsman does not participate in the evaluation of proposals or in the source selection process. Matters of a routine or administrative nature concerning this acquisition should not be addressed to the Ombudsman but rather the Contracting Officer identified below.
