5 DisclaimerThese slides are for information and planning purposes only. No solicitation exists at this timeThis presentation shall not be construed as a commitment by the Government or as a comprehensive description of any future requirementsIf a solicitation is released, it will be synopsized in the FedBizOpps website and on the NASA Acquisition Internet Service (NAIS) website and on the MOD Procurement website
6 Goals of Industry Day Promote competition on the proposed acquisition. Develop industry understanding of the Government’s current vision and objectives.Provide industry with the opportunity to meet with the Government early enough in the procurement process to provide input into the future MOD contract strategy.Submission of MOD Industry Day questions and comments:in writing during the MOD Industry Day for participants at the MOD Industry Day event.via the Chat feature to the WebEx Administrator for those attending the MOD Industry Day event via WebEx.Note: All questions submitted will be anonymous unless you include your name/Company name.
7 Goals of Industry DayNASA has evaluated the combine – vs. – separate MOD contracts decision considering multiple internal and external inputs and has determined that it is not in the Government’s best interest to continue to consider the merits of combining the Integrated Mission Operations Contract (IMOC) and the Facilities Development and Operations Contract (FDOC). As such, NASA intends to develop a formal procurement strategy for a potential follow-on contract for IMOC. With this in mind, the Government will address only the current IMOC requirements at the scheduled industry day.
8 Responses to Questions Questions will be answered during Industry Day but responses to questions will not be considered official.The official responses to all questions submitted from the MOD Industry Day or via the “Anonymous Questions to the Contracting Officer” feature on the MOD Procurement website will be posted in writing to FedBizOpps, NAIS, and the MOD Procurement website.If a difference exists between verbal and written responses to questions, the written responses shall govern.
