  2. 2. N00421-08-R-0118 0002 Page 2 of 27 SECTION SF 30 BLOCK 14 CONTINUATION PAGE SUMMARY OF CHANGES SECTION A - SOLICITATION/CONTRACT FORM QUESTIONS FOR RFP N00421-05-R-0118 Questions Received 01/02/2009-01/06/2009 Overhaul of T700-GE-401/401C Turbo Shaft Engines Cold Section Modules, and Power Turbine Modules 1. On page 7 of the subject RFP (para 2.0 "Applicable Documents), there is a reference to AMCOM Engineering Directive (AED-P3441). It is our understanding that this document has been cancelled. If this is correct, we request that the reference to this document be removed from the RFP via an amendment. Answer: Yes, Ch 8 to the DMWR has changed. The change occurred after the re-compete commenced. The AED was added as appendix L. Appendix L still only applies to the T700-GE-401 and T700-GE-401C engines and modules. The Enhanced Engine Performance Work scope MEO P3863 for the T700-GE-401 and T700-GE-401C listed in Appendix will be added to Applicable Documents via amendment. 2. On page 9 of the subject RFP, item 3.4 talks about ensuring external components are tested and/ or repaired (from engines) as necessary. Our question is: The DMWR for the engine has a matrix for functional test of these external components like the HMU, AI valve, etc. during engine test. Is this functional test (during actual engine testing) an acceptable way to test the components for the Navy? Answer: Yes this functional test is acceptable, provided if component fails it is repaired. The intent of this paragraph is, should the component fail functional test it will be repaired with no additional cost. Functional testing verbiage will be added via amendment. 3. Page 8 3.0 Requirements states that each whole engine consists of the following: Cold Section PT module A whole engine also would require a complete hot section (GG rotor/stator, stg 1 nozzle, OBP seal and combustion liner) and a complete accessory module package. When we receive a whole engine will it only be the cold section and PT module? Answer: No, the engine will ship complete with all the internal components (GG rotor/stator, Stg 1 nozzle OBP seal and combustion liner). External components include accessory gearbox, HMU, AISBV, IPS. 4. Page 16 Appendix B. Government furnished equipment The list of furnished equipment is not sufficient to test both 401 and 401C Cold sections and PT modules. For instance: - There is no GG rotor/stator, stg 1 nozzle, OBP seal, combustor for either the 401 or 401C engine - There is no 401 cold section or PT module
  3. 3. N00421-08-R-0118 0002 Page 3 of 27 - There is not a complete set of LRU's listed for the gearbox Our assumption is the Navy will supply all the required test equipment to allow testing of both 401 and 401C cold sections and PT modules. If that is not the case we need to know so we can price in the missing equipment needs. Answer: Updates to the GFE list have been added via amendment. 5. Page 47 4.0 Proposal Submission Reference to volume 2. Should this be volume 3 ("Past Performance")? Answer: Yes, correction should be Volume 3, correction will be made via amendment. 6. Page 48 part B specific instructions item iv. references volume 6 - this should be volume 5, correct? Answer: Yes, correction should be Volume 5, correction will be made via amendment. 7. Page 51 3.1 General references technical volume 3 - this should be volume 2, correct ? Answer: Yes, correction should be Volume 2, correction will be made via amendment. 8. After reading clause 252.239-7001 (Information Assurance Contractor Training And Certification) and DoD 8570.01-M, it is our understanding that this clause applies to contracts where the contractor's personnel would be performing an Information Assurance function. We believe this to mean performing job responsibilities that have to do with protecting the DoD's computer network, information systems, and other IT assets such as servers, routers, etc. It is our position that this requirement would not be applicable to the scope of work set forth in the subject RFP. If you concur, we request that an amendment to the solicitation be issued to remove DFARS clause 252.239-7001. Answer: The clause will remain in the RFP, access to government databases will be needed. NO EXTENSION WILL BE GIVEN AS A RESULT OF AMENDMENT 0002 TO RFP N00421-08-R-0118

Parts to be displayed in as-received condition (dirty layout). 5.0 Performance Metrics Performance metrics define the minimum acceptable levels of performance that must be met to satisfy the requirements of this. The metrics are defined and established as follows: Repair Turnaround Time (RTAT) thresholds for: Engines: 90 calendar days Cold Section Modules: 90 calendar days Power Turbine Modules: 60 calendar days The Contractor shall meet a maximum RTAT of 90 calendar days for all engine and CSM repairs and 60 calendar days for PTM repairs. RTAT shall begin when the Contractor receives serviceable, Not-Ready-For-Issue (NRFI) Engines, CSMs, or PTMs and a work order is issued to induct the Engines, CSMs or PTMs for repair it ends when the Engines, CSMs, and PTMs are signed off, by the Government or appointed representative, as Ready-For-Issue (RFI), which includes completion of all entries in logbooks and records, and are ready for shipment by the Contractor. Contractor shall forward a copy of the Engine/CSM/PTM log books/component cards to the ECOMTRAK manager for review/correction upon induction for repair. Upon completion of repair contractor shall forward Engine/CSM/PTM log books/component cards with replaced/repaired component serial numbers with Time Since New/Time Since Repair (TSN/TSR) to the ECOMTRAK manager for review prior to shipment. Note: The 90-day CSM and 60-day PTM RTAT metrics DO NOT pertain to modules installed on Engines. RTAT for these modules shall be subsumed by engine RTAT. CSM and PTM RTAT only pertains to those modules received as separate items. Customer Hold Time (CHT) may be deleted from the total repair processing time when calculating RTAT. CHT is defined as the elapsed calendar days that the Contractor must halt the repair process to await required Government action, i.e., funding, respond to repair estimates, await Government inspection, await for Government to provide status on parts on shortage list (Para 3.2), and await Government provided material such as Power Plant Change (PPC) kits, etc. Periods in which the Contractor can continue repair processing while waiting for Government action shall not be included in CHT. The Contractor shall justify to the Contracting Officer Representative (COR) that the RTAT threshold has been met including any reported authorized CHT. During performance of contract, the Contractor shall be evaluated on the basis of whether RTAT has been properly met. Excess RTAT days are computed by subtracting verified CHT days from the actual elapsed RTAT, less the appropriate RTAT metric, as described below: • For Engines and CSMs: o Excess RTAT = Actual elapsed RTAT – CHT days - 90 days • For PTMs: o Excess RTAT = Actual elapsed RTAT – CHT - 60 days 6.0 Reports 6.1 Engine Transaction Reporting

The proposal must be sufficient in detail and scope to permit evaluation and provide the evaluators a clear understanding of the offeror’s approach, expertise, experience and capability as required by the solicitation. All proposals must clearly and convincingly demonstrate that the offeror has a thorough understanding of the requirements, associated risks and is able, willing and competent to devote the resources necessary to meet the requirements and has valid and practical solutions for all requirements and potential risk areas. Respond to all requirements of the solicitation. Do not alter or rearrange the solicitation. The burden of proof for all the evaluation factors identified in this solicitation rests with the offeror. The offerors are advised that the Government may incorporate into the final contract enhancing features included in the Offeror’s proposal deemed beneficial to the Government. With the exception of the Price Volume, no cost or pricing information should appear in any other volume. In presenting material in the proposal, the offeror is advised that quality of information is more important than quantity. Clarity, brevity, and logical organization should be emphasized during proposal preparation. It is the responsibility of the offeror to present enough information to allow the various work efforts, support, and management approaches, as well as price, to be meaningfully evaluated without discussions. Statements that the prospective offeror understands, can or will comply with the specifications, and paraphrasing the requirements or parts thereof without supporting information are considered inadequate and may render a rating of unsatisfactory. For the purpose of this acquisition, relevance is defined as something that has a logical connection with the matter under consideration. Such aspects or relevance include the type of effort (e.g. development, production, repair), the type of requirements (e.g. weapon systems, information systems, engineering services, scheduled depot maintenance), service similarity, service complexity, contract type, contract dollar value, the division of the

The offeror must include any data necessary to illustrate the adequacy of the various assumptions, approaches, and solutions to problems. Failure to clearly and positively address a specific factor or subfactor may be considered a deficiency. There is no need to repeat information in more than one volume if an overlap exists; the detailed information must be included in the most logical place and summarized and referenced in other areas. Unnecessarily elaborate brochures or other presentation materials beyond that sufficient to present a complete and effective proposal is neither necessary nor desired. Offerors are expected to comply with all requirements of the RFP. The Government advises offerors that taking exception or deviating from any term or condition of the RFP may make an offer unacceptable, and the offeror ineligible for award, unless the RFP expressly authorizes such an exception or deviation with regard to that specific term or condition. The Government may consider any exception or deviation to any term or condition of the RFP that is not expressly authorized by the RFP to be a deficiency, as defined in FAR 15.001. Offerors are to detail the particular section, clause paragraph and page to which they take exception. In evaluating an Offeror’s capability, the Government will consider how well the Offeror complied with the instructions in this solicitation. An Offeror may eliminate a deficiency in its offer only through discussions as prescribed in FAR 15.306. The Government also reserves the right to change any of the terms and conditions of this solicitation by amendment at any time prior to contract award and to allow Offerors to revise their offers accordingly, as authorized by FAR 15.206.

Demonstrate the relevancy of the Offeror’s, and if applicable, the Offeror’s principal subcontractors’ or critical team members’ past performance and systemic improvements with respect to the solicitation requirements. For each past performance problem identified, describe the status of the systemic improvement efforts and, where applicable, demonstrate the impact that the systemic improvement effort had on resolving the problem such that it would not reoccur. For contracts that have CPARs that are more than 6 months old, i.e., the completion date is more than 6 months before the due date for this Past Performance Volume; the offeror will forward a copy of the CPARs Update Questionnaire (Attachment 6) to that contract customer’s Program Manager. For all contracts identified which do not have CPARs, the offeror will forward a copy of the Past Performance Questionnaire (Attachment 7) to that contract customer’s PCO, Administrative Contracting Officer and Program Manager. All questionnaires shall be forwarded within two weeks from the RFP release date with enough lead-time so that responses can be received by the Government concurrent with the Government’s receipt of the offeror’s Past Performance information submitted as per paragraph 3.1 and 3.2 The offeror shall include instructions for the customers to send completed questionnaires within two weeks of it’s receipt via e-mail to Chris Schimek, Contract Specialist, at Email or via fax number 301-757-2526, thereby allowing the customer approximately 2 weeks to complete their response. This submittal information is provided at the top of the questionnaires to facilitate the offeror’s effort in meeting these instructions. The offeror shall not conduct follow-up actions with regard to this questionnaire. The Government will ensure that the customers have received and will respond to the questionnaires. The Government may send any other questionnaires as necessary. Offerors shall provide written consent from their principal subcontractors and critical team members that will allow the Government to coordinate their Past Performance issue(s) with you as the Prime offeror. If Offerors do not submit such written consent, then the Government will address any past performance issues directly with the principal subcontractor or critical team member and the Offeror will forfeit the opportunity to participate in any related discussions. Consequently, for any principal subcontractors and critical team members that do not provide such written consent, provide a point of contact (name, address, phone number, and email address) with which the Government may coordinate these issues and obtain any responses as needed. Offerors are reminded that the Government may use information other than that provided by the offerors in their proposals to evaluate past performance. The Government may use Past Performance information obtained from sources other than those identified by the offeror. The Past Performance Information Reporting system (PPIRs) will be the primary method used to evaluate Past Performance. It is incumbent upon the offeror to explain the relevance of the data provided. The Government does not assume the duty to search for data to cure the problems it finds in the information provided by the Offeror. The burden of providing thorough and complete past performance information remains with the Offeror. (a) Contract Data Provide all the information identified below separately for each contract. Additionally, provide this information electronically as a separate file on CD-ROM, which contains your Past Performance proposal in a Word Table in the format depicted below: Relevant Contract Data Prime (P), or Sub (S) 1.

An exception is where an offeror states it will not comply with a requirement, usually involving contract terms and conditions. A deviation is where an offeror states it will not comply with a requirement but proposes an alternative to meet the intent of the requirement, usually involving a specification. A waiver is where an offeror requests authorization for the Government to accept an item, which will depart from, specified requirements, but would nevertheless be considered suitable. Exceptions, deviations, and requests for waivers may cause proposals to be considered deficient. An assumption or condition shall not be considered an exception, deviation, or request for waiver as defined herein. Provide a detailed description for each exception, deviation or request for waiver. Indicate your difficulty with the applicable requirement and your proposed solution. Specifically identify the portion of the solicitation and your proposal, which are affected.
