Small Business Set-Aside
The U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI)/NBC/GovWorks intends to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to implement the Financial and Business Management System (FBMS) using the Advisory Multi-step Process as outlined in Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Subpart 15.202. The resulting contract will be a negotiated effort for the acquisition of commercial items in accordance with, but not limited to, FAR Parts 15 and 12. This is a reprocurement. General Description of Scope: This is a reprocurement effort. The Financial and Business Management System (FBMS) will be the fundamental functionality-driven solution supporting administrative management of the Department; hence, it represents a critical and intrinsic part of DOI's business architecture. The objective is to provide Interior with standard business practices supported by a single, integrated finance and administrative system for all Bureaus. The potential winner of this award will serve as the main integrator and provide project management for the implementation of a suite of software applications that will help Interior manage a variety of business functions, including: Budget Formulation, Core Financials, Personal, Real, and Fleet Property, Acquisition, Travel, Financial Assistance, and Enterprise Management Information. As the Nation's principal conservation agency, Interior, with its 80,000 employees and over 2,400 locations, serves as steward for approximately 507 million acres of America's public lands and their natural and cultural resources. Interior also supervises mineral leasing and operations on more than 634 million acres that underlie both Federal and other surface ownerships. Interior's annual budget is about $13 billion. In addition, DOI raises around $9 billion in revenues from energy, mineral, grazing, timber, recreation, and land sales. DOI's mission is achieved through hundreds of programs and activities carried out by its eight bureaus and one principal office: Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Minerals Management Service (MMS), Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation, and Enforcement (OSM), Bureau of Reclamation (BOR), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), National Park Service (NPS), Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), and Office of the Secretary (OS). The Government anticipates the issuance of a single Performance Based Indefinite Delivery, Requirements contract using Best Value, Source Selection, Trade-Off procedures in accordance with FAR Parts 15 and 16. The Indefinite Delivery Requirements Not-to-Exceed amount is $80 Million for the life of the contract. The contract duration consists of a base period and four one-year option periods subject to the availability of funds. Up to two Firm Fixed Price Task Orders may be issued in the solicitation for price evaluation. The first Task Order will be awarded with the basic Requirements contract and will require the development of the implementation schedule that is subject to an Integrated Baseline Review. Future task orders may include solutions in support of the FBMS program. The Government makes no representation as to the number of task orders or the actual amount of work to be ordered. The applicable North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code is 541519 with size standard of $21.0 Million. Large businesses are required to submit a Small and Small Disadvantaged Business Subcontracting Plan with their Statement of Qualification (SOQ) showing acceptable levels of subcontracting with small, small disadvantaged business (SDB), woman-owned, veteran-owned small business (WO/VOSB), Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), HUBZone small business and HBCU/MI concerns.
