Synopsis

REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
Total Asset Visibility Services/Hardware
THIS REQUEST IS FOR PLANNING PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL. DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN INVITATION FOR BIDS, A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS, A SOLICITATION, A REQUEST FOR QUOTES, OR AN INDICATION THE GOVERNMENT WILL CONTRACT FOR THE ITEMS CONTAINED IN THE RFI. THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT REIMBURSE RESPONDENTS FOR ANY COST ASSOCIATED WITH SUBMISSION OF THE INFORMATION BEING REQUESTED OR REIMBURSE EXPENSES INCURRED TO INTERESTED PARTIES FOR RESPONSES TO THIS RFI.
The United States Government (USG) currently utilizes a proprietary Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) Total Asset Visibility (TAV) system manufactured by Tapestry Solutions, Inc, labeled Global Distribution Management System (GDMS) to provide TAV of contracted trucking assets throughout the Afghanistan Theater of Operations.
The government is seeking information regarding potential providers of equipment and communication services that can integrate with the GDMS TAV system. The USG is only interested at this point in identifying capable contractors for this requirement.
First, does your company manufacture a GPS transponder that is able to transmit data to the GDMS used by USG to show its location with a ping rate of at least once every 15 minutes? With respect to this question, the USG is concerned whether the transponder has the technology to send such a signal, regardless of any subscription services or rights needed to be purchased to actually feed the data into the GDMS used by the USG.
Second, does your company provide communication services/software with the ability to feed data into the GDMS used by the USG? For this question, we are interested to find whether other firms have the ability, with respect to both technology and any legal rights or agreements that may be required, to provide communication services/software that can feed a signal from a transponder into the GDMS used by the USG.
Interested organizations may submit their capabilities, and qualifications to provide the above mentioned services/hardware in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 1600 Afghanistan time on 16 February 2011. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the government. Oral communications ARE NOT acceptable in response to this notice. Sources shall include in their information, a capabilities statement stating their experience in providing the same or similar items described in this notice, a point of contact with phone and e-mail information. Interested parties capable of performing this requirement should send e-mail to: joseph.t. moonan@afghan.swa.army.mil.
