The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has released solicitation documents for its IT-based multiple award Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) J6 Enterprise Technology Services (JETS) 2.0. This is the follow-on contract to DLA’s initial JETS suite of contracts.
JETS 2.0 is positioned to become DLA’s primary IT services and operations vehicle for the next decade, and the agency may consolidate other stand-alone IT requirements into the vehicle. While the solicitation is unrestricted, a portion of contract awards will be reserved for small business and 8(a) offerors.
The proposal consists of three volumes:
- Business Proposal with an Executive Summary
- Non-Price Proposal, separated into four (4) factors including:
- Technical Merit
- Partnering and Strategic Alliance
- Key Personnel
- Small Business Participation
- Cost/Price Proposal
Non-Price Proposals do not have a page limit, but the Government notes that the requirements of the solicitation can be met in fewer than 100 pages, including Appendices and Attachments. All Non-Price factors, when combined, will take higher evaluation priority over Cost/Price.
The proposal will be evaluated in two (2) phases, according to the RFP:
- Phase 1 will consist of an evaluation of Factor 1 (Technical Merit), Subfactor A (Technical Approach) of the Non-Price Proposal. The Technical Approach will receive an adjectival rating ranging from Outstanding to Unacceptable.
- Phase 2 is reserved for offerors who receive an “Acceptable” or higher rating for Factor 1, Subfactor A, Technical Approach. Phase 2 evaluations will consist of Factor 1 (Technical Merit), Subfactor B (Management Approach); Factor 2 (Partnering and Strategic Alliance; Factor 3 (Key Personnel); Factor 4 (Small Business Participation); and, Cost/Price, Factors 1 through 3.
JETS 2.0 has a five-year base period and a five-year option period and is a multiple-award contract. Other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies may also be permitted to order off JETS 2.0.
