Development, Modifications, and Depot Maintenance. F2AST may include one-time spares and repairs which qualify as critical, limited, and/or contingency. Sole source services and services that are not reasonably severable from the development, modification or depot maintenance efforts may also be included. FMS and classified work may be performed using the F2AST contract vehicle.
Step 1: Pre-proposal activity
Contract the F2AST PMO who will confirm scope and assist in process. As required by this IDIQ, the PMO is the single point for all transactions. Contractors are encouraged to work with their government customers to help define requirements.
Step 2: The government releases an RFOP
Typical F2AST RFOPs include a Statement of Objectives (SOD) or a Statement of Work (SOW), any assumptions by the government, instructions for completing the proposal, and any Contract Data Requirements Lists (CDRLs) required.
Step 3: A proposal is created
Using the materials provided by the government, contractors create a proposal. Typical proposals include a management/technical proposal, pricing, basis of estimate, travel worksheet, and material pricing backup. Typical time for proposal generation is seven days, with some leeway for large or complex proposals.
Step 4: The government reviews the proposal
The government reviews the documentation provided by the contractor and requests any clarifications or additional material. Government engineers review the technical aspects, while the government program manager reviews for risk and cost reasonableness.
Step 5: Negotiations take place
Cost and Fixed-Price orders may require some negotiation.
Step 6: A Delivery/Task Order is placed
Time to award is based on level of complexity and value.
