General Introduction: This announcement constitutes a Sources Sought Synopsis (SSS) only. �The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Enterprise and Specialized Contracting (AFLCMC/PZIEB) is conducting a market assessment to identify potential sources and companies that may possess the expertise, capabilities, and experience pertaining to Contractor Engineering and Technical Services (CETS) for A-10C aircraft systems sustainment. The Government is issuing this SSS solely for information and planning purposes.� The Government will consider responses to determine the acquisition strategy for procuring A-10C CETS.� This is not a request for a quote, request for proposals (RFP), or an invitation to bid, nor is this to be construed as a commitment by the Government to issue a solicitation or ultimately award a contract, nor does it restrict the Government to a particular acquisition approach. �The Government will not reimburse or pay for any information submitted in response to this SSS or any follow-up information requests. �Please be advised that all submissions become Government property and will not be returned. �All costs associated with responding to this SSS will be solely at the responding party�s expense. AFLCMC is not seeking proposals at this time, and will not accept or consider unsolicited proposals. Not responding to this SSS does not preclude participation in any future RFP. �Small Businesses are encouraged to provide responses to this SSS in order to assist AFLCMC in determining potential levels of competition available in the industry, as well as helping to establish a basis for developing any subsequent small business subcontract plan goal percentages. �An acquisition strategy is still being determined. �Market research results will assist the Air Force in determining whether this requirement will be a full-and-open, a small business set-aside, or a sole-source acquisition. Note that if there is sufficient demonstrated interest and capability among small business contractors, then it may be determined that a small business set-aside is appropriate.� A key factor in determining if an acquisition will be a small business set-aside is that two or more potential small business prime contractors must be capable of performing at least 50% of the effort, as defined in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clause 52.219-14, �Limitations on Subcontracting.� �If it is determined that a small business set-aside is appropriate, and your company anticipates submitting a proposal as the prime contractor for a small business set-aside, please provide specific details and rationale as to how compliance with FAR 52.219-14 with subcontracts are to be used, provide anticipated percentage of effort to be subcontracted and whether small or large businesses will be used. �Responders should clearly delineate any teaming and/or subcontracting arrangements and provide previous experience in teaming. �If this effort is not set-aside for small business, then the Government will consider using small businesses. �Large and small businesses should provide a reasonable expectation for small business utilization as a percent of total contract value, as well as supporting rationale for the recommended percentage. In accordance with FAR 15.201(e), responses to this notice are not offers and the Government cannot accept to form a binding contract. �It is the responsibility of the interested parties to monitor the FedBizOpps (fbo.gov) site for any additional information pertaining to this SSS. The Government may contact companies if it requires additional information to fully understand the marketplace. Responders should also state whether they are interested in being a prime contractor for this requirement or a subcontractor. This effort is expected to result in a Firm Fixed Price contract. The anticipated period of performance is 01 July 2022 to 30 June 2025.
