Information Sought
The Government requests a letter of interest (or similar document) with responses to the following:
State your firm name (as it appears in SAM.gov ), firm office location where these services will be performed from, UEI number, and socio-economic status of the firm (i.e. verified SDVOSB, WOSB, SB, large business).
Provide a brief narrative on the firm s experience providing services similar to those described in the attached statement of work.
What would be the expected make-up of the firm s team in terms of socio- economic categories and estimated percentage of work to be completed by your firm and each subcontractor?
If the procurement is set-aside for any category of small business, generally fifty percent of more of the work would need to be performed by the contractor or a similarly situated subcontractor in terms of percentage of cost. For instance, if set-aside for service- disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB), 50% or more of the contract would need to be performed by verified SDVOSBs no other small business categories would count towards the percentage. If set-aside for small business, 50% of the contract would be required to be performed by small businesses which would include performance by a verified SDVOSB because they are also a small business. If the procurement is not set- aside and reaches certain dollar thresholds, the Government would negotiate an acceptable subcontracting plan to utilize small business concerns.
A brief statement of overall interest in the project and capability of performing the work in conjunction with ongoing projects.
Any additional capabilities statements or other documentation that you feel will assist the Government in performing market research and determining the appropriate set-aside.
