PEO-STRI Omnibus Contract II (STOC II)
The U.S. Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation’s (PEO-STRI) Omnibus Contract II (STOC II) is an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract that supports a key PEO-STRI initiative: advance Department of Defense and the U.S. Army’s efforts to create interoperable live, virtual and constructive solutions to enhance training and testing capabilities. The contract has a ceiling of $17.5B with a base ordering period and three (3) option ordering periods, resulting in a total potential ordering period of 10 years.
The PEO envisions the following types of product and/or service support delivery/task orders occurring under the procurement:
- Equipping actual warfighting equipment, systems and munitions with the capability to execute individual, crew and collective training, testing, experimentation and rehearsal in a specific environment. It includes training/testing/experimentation executed using computer-generated battlefields in simulators with the approximate physical layout of tactical weapons systems and vehicles.
- Procuring and/or supporting war games, gaming and automated simulations which represent actions of people and systems in a simulation. The PEO identifies these solutions with large-scaled, complex, computer-driven models most often associated with exercises dealing with Battalions, Brigades, Divisions, Corps, Echelons Above Corps and/or their Other Service (e.g., USAF) or Joint Force equivalent. This also includes entity level force simulations and models.
- Representing military operations using live forces and instrumented weapon systems interacting on training, test and exercise ranges which simulate experiences during actual operational conditions. It includes training/testing or experimentation executed in field conditions using tactical equipment, enhanced by training aids, devices, simulators and simulations (TADSS), test systems, and Tactical Engagement Simulation (TES) to simulate combat conditions.
- Procuring and/or supporting the systems, subsystems, components or devices, targets or threat simulators which includes, but is not limited to, the sensors which individually/collectively test materiel, non-weapon systems or weapon systems in a developmental/operational testing environment or training exercise. This includes the sensors, telecommunications equipment and other materials that provide the capability to detect, measure, record, transmit and process/analyze information generated during a test or training exercise.
- Developing, integrating, or procuring common components to reduce Total Ownership Cost (TOC) or enhance interoperability. This includes developing interoperability solutions across Modeling and Simulation domains as well as stand-alone or embedded capabilities to interface with or stimulate command and control or battle command systems.
All efforts are applicable to all U.S. Government entities (federal, state and local), selected non-Government entities and appropriate/approved foreign entities.
To provide PEO STRI with the ability to procure a broad range of Modeling & Simulation (M&S) and Instrumentation solutions in support of Customer training and testing requirements. These solutions will include procurement and/or services support of training and testing simulators, simulations, systems/devices, instrumentation systems, telecommunications systems, experimentation, targets, gaming, advanced simulation concepts, and open architecture, and common part and component solutions.
The Contracting Officer may use a variety of “notice” and source selection procedures. Such approaches may include, but are not limited to, Requests for Information (RFI), White Papers, oral presentations, providing a sample task, soliciting for a Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) estimate or requesting a quad chart. The Contracting Officer may use any of these techniques or others to limit the number of proposals to the greatest number that will permit an efficient competition among the most highly rated proposals. The manner of soliciting offers on task or delivery orders will vary with the complexity and dollar amount of the requirement. In accordance with the FAR, these procedures may be tailored as applicable to each order.
