NOTICE OF CONTRACTING ACTION (NOCA) This Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOps) announcement constitutes a Notice of Contracting Action (NOCA). The Department of the Air Force, Air Force Material Command, Ops C2 Division, Electronic Systems Center, Hanscom AFB, MA intends to issue a Request For Proposal (RFP) to acquire, on a full and open competition basis, Contractor Engineering and Technical Support (CETS) III services for the Royal Saudi Air Force. The intended RFP will be for a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) requirement for providing up to 34 man-years of Contractor Engineering and Technical Support (CETS) to the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) for the operation, maintenance and support of their C4I Systems each year for three (3) years. Additionally, this effort will require the provision of western style housing with the required security to protect CETS personnel in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). The responsibility of housing/security will be upon the contractor. The Government estimated price range for the provision of CETS manpower, including housing, is between $24.5 and $27 million. The requirement will be for highly-educated engineers and specialists who have considerable experience in various aspects of present RSAF Command and Control hardware, software, and communications sub-systems, as well as Tactical Units equipment and systems that are also elements of the RSAF C4I System. The RSAF already has a direct commercial contract for the day-to-day maintenance and operations of the RSAF C4I System. This FMS requirement would be for personnel who have considerable experience in the development, installation and deployment of C4I systems. The new personnel experience will allow them to advise the RSAF in solving the most difficult and challenging problems beyond the expertise and abilities of the day-to-day technicians and assist RSAF in planning technology advancements to improve C4I capabilities. The majority of the positions will be in support of RSAF management in charge of overall maintenance and software development to the RSAF C4I System at the Central Maintenance Facility on Prince Sultan Air Base, Al Kharj, Saudi Arabia, and include three (3) C4I Systems Engineers, seven (7) C4I Software Engineers, two (2) C4I Wire Comm Engineers, two (2) C4I Wireless Comm Engineers, one (1) C4I Wireless Comm Engineer II, two (2) FPS-117 Radar Engineers, one (1) C4I Data Processing and Display Engineer, one (1) PABX and Encryption Devices Systems Engineer, and one (1) Network Support Engineer. Several of the positions will be to provide support and assistance to the Director of Electronics, Communications, and Computers and his staff at RSAF Headquarters in Riyadh for planning upgrades and future enhancements to the C4I System including two (2) C4I Systems Engineers, one (1) TADIL-A Link System Engineer, one (1) Communications Systems Engineer, one (1) Radar Engineer, and one (1) C4I Data Processing and Display Engineer. A total of five (5) of the positions, all FPS-117 Radar Engineers, will be located at the five (5) RSAF Communications and Computer Wings in various sectors of the country to provide special maintenance assistance for three to five fixed long range radars. One (1) TPS-72 Radar Engineer position is located near Jeddah to provide resident maintenance engineering assistance at the Tactical Unit Center (TUC). Two other special positions are included: one (1) is a C4I Systems Operations Engineer for the COC in Riyadh and one (1) is a Navigations Aids Systems Engineer in support of the Comms and Computer Wing at Prince Sultan Air Base. In addition to the 34 engineering positions, a full time In-kingdom Liaison Officer with housing and transportation support is required to coordinate all project related issues and support with USAF, Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), RSAF and other Saudi Agencies. This notice is not a Request for Proposal (RFP). In addition, this notice does not constitute a commitment by the Government nor does it restrict the Government as to the ultimate acquisition approach. Please direct any questions concerning this notice to the attention of Rudy W. Wiechert, Contracting Officer, ESC/HSGK, 11 Barksdale Street, Hanscom AFB, MA 01731-1700, Phone Number 781-225-9472; or email to ESC/HSGK CETSIII Mailbox
