1) The solicitation calls for an quote mark electronic technical proposal quote mark to be sent to you, which I assume we can do all via email. With previous contract bids, we have also submitted a bound proposal (in a binder) that included work samples and other attachments.
Answer: Bids will only be accepted via email. If the PWS requires work samples, then please provide IAW PWS. If the PWS does not require work samples for evaluation, then submitting samples is your choice but can not be used in evaluation.
2) Does the Combined Synopsis/Solicitation under solicitation number W9124714T0016 contain requirements similar to a current contract?
If possible, please provide the current contract number.
Or, is this a new requirement for the government?
Answer: Yes, the terms/conditions and expections for the upcoming requirement are similar to the current contract. The current contract number is W91247-09-H-0001 and this is not a new requirement. The upcoming requirement is a follow-on to the contract number provided.
If your firm wishes to compete for the opportunity to publish the Paraglide, please submit an electronic technical proposal in accordance with the attached performance work statement, no later than 2:00PM EST, 23 June 2014 to Vanessa Coleman @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
