THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE AND IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS.The United States Army Rapid Capabilities and Critical Technologies Office (RCCTO) is issuing this Sources Sought notice to identify if there are any responsible providers of engineering support for the U.S. Army Mid-Range Capability Weapon System. This notice is published in accordance with Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations (DFARS) Procedures, Guidance, and Information (PGI) 206.302-1, Only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements, and is a Sources Sought notice only in support of market research.

As part of these prototyping efforts, engineering support is required to assess and implement system improvements, to include both software and hardware updates; alternate technical approaches; future technology evaluation and specific problem identification; diminishing manufacturing sources and obsolescence; change control over updates to the Technical Data Package (TDP); provide MRC SIPRNET and Software Integration Lab (SIL) maintenance and improvements; cyber security support; support system safety events and documentation, qualification and testing, to include post-production system integration check-out (SICO) and flight tests, leveraging subject matter expertise of the system.As the developer and producer of the Mid-Range Capability system, the Army RCCTO believes Lockheed Martin Corporation is the only responsible source capable of providing these services; however, all responsible sources may submit a capability statement demonstrating the ability to provide the requested services, which shall be considered by the agency before an award. RCCTO anticipates this contract to start NLT 2QFY24 and at contract initiation the responsible contractor must be able to successfully perform the services outlined above.
