Marines put call out for command and control testing
The Marine Corps Systems Command tactical systems support activity is conducting market research to develop a contract for the Marine Air Ground Task Force.
The sources sought notice is awash in acronyms, but the opportunity appears to be focused on a variety of testing needs: developmental, engineering, performance and acceptance testing as well as joint certification testing.
Responses are due Nov. 10, and so far, the Marines haven’t declared whether this will be a small business contract or a full and open competition.
According to a draft performance work statement, the Marines rely on contractor support for nearly all testing and engineering including test planning, test execution, post-test activities, engineering activities and meeting support.
In addition to the draft performance work statement, the FBO.gov posting also includes a link to a quality assurance surveillance plan.
The solicitation number for the sources sought is M68909-16-I-7600. The notice also has the tongue-twisting acronym of GCCS-TCO/JTCW T&E CSS. And all of that stands for Global Command and Control System (GCCS) – Tactical Combat Operations (TCO) / Joint Tactical Common Operational Picture (COP) Workstation (JTCW) Test & Evaluation (T&E)Contractor Support Services (CSS).
Like a said, awash in acronyms.
