This is a Request for Information (RFI) for planning purposes only, as part of a market survey led by the PMS 408 EOD/CREW Program Office, Program Executive Office, Littoral and Mine Warfare (PEO LMW). This is not a Request for Proposal. NO SOLICITATION DOCUMENTS EXIST AT THIS TIME. Background PMS 408 EOD/CREW provides the military services with EOD and CREW systems, tools, equipment and information to counter the threat from Improvised Explosive Devices (IED). Various EOD tools and equipment are used to search for, map, identify, investigate, neutralize, and dispose of IEDs on land and in shallow water. The current CREW systems (dismounted systems, mounted systems, and semi-permanent geographical area/fixed systems) are designed to combat radio-controlled IEDs. There are several EOD and CREW system designs in various stages of development, production, fielding, and sustainment. PMS 408 EOD/CREW is searching for vendors with the capability/capacity to manufacture electro-mechanical systems. It is possible and probable that any product under consideration will not have been designed by the respondent. Qualified respondents should have systems engineering acumen, technical skills, and expertise with electro-mechanical hardware, firmware, and software components for procurement, assembly, quality assurance, packaging, and delivery. PMS 408 EOD/CREW would facilitate initial preparation and actual fabrication by providing a technical data package (TDP), specialty/operational critical software/firmware, and a production representative system. A vendor s product base can be completely different from the PMS 408 EOD/CREW product set. However, in the context of this RFI, the vendor s capabilities must be transferrable to CREW systems, EOD robots, and shallow-water Un-manned Underwater Vehicles (UUV). Requested Information The respondent is requested to provide information on the following: a)Demonstrated past performance in systems engineering and technical expertise with hardware, firmware, software, and technical data required for manufacturing; b)The ability to procure parts and materials and perform the required quality checks on the parts and materials procured; c)The ability to understand, amend, and create drawings, data, and technical documentation; d)The ability to assemble electro-mechanical systems; e)Manufacturing capability to include: manufacturing/assembly location(s), available floor space, production capacity/throughput, equipment/tooling, and availability of skilled workers; f)Relevant certifications (e.g., ISO 9000); g)Item Unique Identification (IUID) capabilities/experience; h)Identification and examples of good communication and decision-making processes between the respondent and the Government; i)Identification of risks and cost drivers when manufacturing a product that has not been designed in-house by the respondent; and j)Recommendations for how Industry can help the Government efficiently and effectively execute the described electro-mechanical systems engineering and production activities. Response Format Interested firms who believe they are capable of performing as an electro-mechanical systems engineering and manufacturing vendor are invited to indicate their interest by providing; (a) company name, company address, overnight delivery address (if different from mailing address), cage code, point of contact, e-mail address, telephone number, fax number; and (b) business size and unique qualifiers (e.g., large, foreign, small disadvantaged, veteran owned, woman owned, etc.) Interested parties are requested to respond to this RFI in Microsoft Word for Office 2007 compatible format. RFI responses are limited to 10 pages, including cover and administrative pages, and shall be delivered using 10 point font or larger. Questions may be submitted until 27 May 2011. Each question submitted will be consolidated and published in an amendment to this RFI. Questions should be submitted in writing to Vanessa.ochomogo@navy.mil or George.boateng@navy.mil.
