The Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) intends to solicit and negotiate a contract on a sole-source basis to Craytek Inc, located at 2011 Crystal Drive, Suite 400, Arlington, VA 22202, for highly specialized application systems security assessment and vulnerability mitigation support services. The effort requires current and unique capabilities, expertise, and in-depth knowledge of the five (5) SSP applications along with the SSP information technology (IT) systems architecture.
The anticipated contract will contain a base year effort for FY 2018 and include a total of three (3) option year periods for FY 2019 through FY 2021, with an estimated value, inclusive of all options, of $4M or less. The anticipated contract will contain Level-of-Effort (LOE) Line Items on a Firm-Fixed-Price (FFP) basis. Each LOE line item is estimated to cover a twelve (12) month period of performance and will include option provisions to increase the LOE up to thirty percent (30%), in accordance with SSP terms and conditions. The anticipated award date is October 1, 2017.
Pursuant to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Subsection 19.1506, the ordering activity shall consider contract award to a Women-owned Small Business (WOSB) concern on sole source basis before considering small business set-asides. The North American Industry Classification System code (NAICS) assigned for this scope of work has been identified as a code substantially underrepresented in Federal procurement by WOSB concerns.
Craytek Inc has been identified as a WOSB with the critical experience, expertise, personnel, and in-depth knowledge of the SSP applications and IT architecture required to perform this new effort. Consequently, SSP intends to solicit and negotiate a contract on a sole source basis per the authority of 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(5) (FAR Subsection 6.302-5 — Authorized or Required by Statute, Subpart (b)(7) Sole source awards under the WOSB Program (15 U.S.C. 637(m))) and FAR 19.1506 Women-Owned Small Business Program sole source awards.
