Small Business Set-Aside
Headquarters Air Combat Command (HQ ACC) senior leaders seek discussions with industry, academia, and other government organizations to explore emerging technologies with potential applications to combat airpower. While not a request for contractual offers or proposals, these Technical Information Exchange (TIE) discussions may offer organizations currently conducting Independent Research & Development (IR&D) activities the opportunity to exchange insights with Air Force senior leaders and better focus organizational efforts toward Air Force air combat needs in a mutually beneficial manner. The intent of a TIE event is to focus senior-level discussions on IR&D projects or efforts that may prove useful in the employment of combat airpower while also affording participants the opportunity to gain a fuller understanding of the combat air forces' near-, mid-, and far-term capability needs. Successful TIEs generate and sustain an ongoing dialogue on emerging technologies relevant to the ACC core functions between ACC leaders and senior-level participants from industry, academia, FFRDCs, intra-governmental organizations and others. TIEs also provide preliminary opportunities for information exchanges in science, technology and innovation on the participant's current projects that may have the potential to bring advanced capability to warfighters. A general officer or civilian equivalent from the Directorate of Plans, Programs and Requirements (ACC/A5/8/9) will host each TIE session. ACC is the primary provider of air combat forces to America's warfighting commanders and the directorate champions the capability needs for five of the twelve Air Force Core Functions: Air Superiority; Global Integrated Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance; Global Precision Attack; Personnel Recovery; and Command and Control. For reference, the command's capability needs by core function are available on the Defense Technical Information Center SIPR website here: https://reg.dtic.smil.mil/SDTICreg Note: To access these documents, users must have an active SIPR account and access them through DTIC. In accordance with AFH 31-602, Industrial Security Program. HQ ACC cannot assist organizations or individuals in obtaining SIPR DTIC access or provide an alternative means to access these documents. ====================================================== If you are interested in participating in a TIE event with ACC, please e-mail the following items to the contracting POC listed below: (1) Brief description and depth of the organization's IR&D portfolio (use Arial Font 12, not to exceed two pages) (2) Point(s) of contact for further coordination if selected. Responses are DUE by COB Eastern on 27 April 2018. HQ ACC will invite selected participants with key IR&D initiatives that have the greatest potential to address the command's capability needs. Invitees should prepare senior representatives to present ongoing IR&D technology efforts to HQ ACC senior leaders, explain how these efforts could address warfighting capability needs across any of the command's five core functions, and discuss potential implementation strategies. All deliverables will become property of the US Government, whether or not participants are selected to participate in the TIE events. As always, ACC is committed to safeguarding corporate proprietary information and intellectual property in accordance with FAR 3.104 and other regulations. This announcement is a Request for Information (RFI) in accordance with FAR 15.201 (b). THIS IS NOT A SOLICITATION. This notice is not a request for contractual offers. RFIs gather information from participants without any promise of a current or future contract or requirement. Information provided does not create a binding contract. There is no reimbursement to the RFI respondents for the information provided to HQ ACC. This announcement is a request for information from companies currently conducting IR&D in relevant areas, not a request for companies that may be able to conduct research. Only those companies with demonstrated success in addressing Department of Defense capability development in their IR&D programs should consider responding to this RFI. To be clear, invited organizations participating in TIEs do not receive any financial reimbursement from ACC or the Air Force. Primary Point of Contact for TIE event: ACC's Science and Technology Branch (ACC/A5/8XS) at DSN: 574-7704 Commercial: 757-764-7704 or email, acca8xs@us.af.mil TIE Coordinator: Betty Quinton
