THIS IS A REQUEST FOR INFORMATION (RFI) ONLY. This RFI is issued solely for information and planning purposes - it does not constitute a Request for Proposal (RFP) or a promise to issue an RFP in the future. This request for information does not commit the Government to contract for any supply or service whatsoever. Further, the Army Medical Command Health Readiness Contracting Office is not at this time seeking proposals and will not accept unsolicited proposals. Interested parties are advised the U.S. Government will not pay for any information or administrative costs incurred in response to this RFI; all costs associated with responding to this RFI will be solely at the interested party's expense. Not responding to this RFI does not preclude participation in any future RFP, if any is issued. If a solicitation is released, it will be synopsized on the Federal Business Opportunities (FedBizOpps) website. Potential responders are responsible for monitoring this site for additional information pertaining to this requirement. Note: This is a revised RFI under W81K04-17-R-0012 and does not constitute a new, separate requirement. Background/Purpose: The United States Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) is considering a non-personal services requirement to provide paramedic and critical care training, remediation, and assistance with scheduling for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) examination for the National Registered Paramedic (NRP) certification; and for administration of the Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C) examination. The US Government will not exercise any supervision or control over the contract service providers (CSPs) performing the services herein. Such CSPs shall be accountable solely to the contractor who is, in turn responsible to the US Government The US Army Medical Department has identified a gap in the training and knowledge base in the flight medic community. The current conflicts around the globe have seen a significant increase in the survivability of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines in combat. This has, however, resulted in an increase in critically ill and complex patients further forward on the battlefield. In the past, it has been the duty of the flight medic to render en-route care in the back of medical evacuation or casualty evacuation aircraft from either the point of injury or sites of damage control surgery. The training standard for Army flight medics has been Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). In the civilian air ambulance setting, EMTs are not authorized to provide the level of en-route care required by modern combat casualties; this level is reserved for the critical-care trained NRP. Therefore, to bridge the training gap between battlefield providers and their civilian counterparts, the US Army Medical Department Center & School, in accordance with (IAW) the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013, has established a program to train all existing and new flight medics to the NRP standard with additional critical care training. The US Army Critical Care Flight Paramedic Program consists of three parts: the AMEDD Aviation Crewmember Course taught by the US Army School of Aviation Medicine; paramedic training provided by this contract; and critical care clinical training also provided by this contract. Upon completion of the paramedic portion, students will take the NRP examination, and upon completion of the critical care course, students will be scheduled to take the FP-C exam. A draft Performance Work Statement is attached to this announcement for reference. RFI (Capability) Response: This revision of the RFI has been extended.
