NOAA has issued an update regarding the current acquisition strategy and schedule of key acquisition milestones for the Operations, Maintenance and Sustainment (OMS) single-award IDIQ procurement. OMS will be solicited using full and open competition and a single-award IDIQ is anticipated to have a 10-year ordering period and total estimated value of $700 million. The Satellite and Information Acquisition Division (SIAD) anticipates an RFP release date in 1QFY20 with an award date in 1QFY21.
The NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) line office in conjunction with SIAD are actively pursuing this requirement and are presently in the acquisition planning phase. SIAD will be releasing draft OMS documents through this special notice on FBO in the near future to obtain industry feedback.Dept of Commerce NOAA XTRA
