This Sources Sought Request for Information (RFI) is for information, planning and market
research purposes only and shall not be construed as either a solicitation or obligation on
the part of the Food and Drug Administration or its Centers. The purpose of this RFI is to
help the FDA understand the technical capabilities for providing the full range of services
described in the Statement of Work (SOW) attached at the end. FDA will use this market
research information to assess the market’s capability to successfully meet FDA’s Training
Room A/V Equipment Preventative Maintenance requirements.
FDA welcomes responses from all interested businesses. FDA does not intend to make a
selection decision or award a contract on the basis of responses nor otherwise pay for the
preparation of any information submitted or FDA’s use of such information.
Acknowledgment of receipt of responses will not be made, no questions will be answered,
nor will respondents be notified of the outcome of the FDA’s review of the information
received. Additionally, the FDA does not intend to hold discussions concerning this RFI
with any interested parties. However, FDA reserves the right to contact vendors if
additional information is required.
A complete response to the RFI should include answers to all of the questions below.
Please note that a respondent’s failure to provide a complete response to a question
will be interpreted to mean that it does not understand the question and does not
demonstrate the capability to provide services required. Responses should
demonstrate capability, not merely affirm the respondent’s capability (e.g.: The response
must go beyond the statement that, “XYZ company can provide training support.”).
Responses to the RFI related to company capabilities (questions 1-3) should not exceed 2
pages in length. Comments and questions regarding the SOWs (questions 2) are not
subject to a page limitation. The RFI responses should be submitted via email to Min Jie
Zeng at firstname.lastname@example.org by 4PM on Sept 9th, 2020. E-Mail is the only acceptable
method of delivery for this sources sought notice.
