VSD has been awarded a multiple award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract under the Training Data Products Contract (TDPC), for both LOT I and LOT II. Multiple award contracts (MACs) provide the Naval Air Systems Command Team with a streamlined, quick-reaction vehicle for the acquisition and life-cycle support of training data products (TDP) through the application of the Instructional Systems Development (ISD) process. The TDPC scope will encompass all phases of the ISD process including analysis, design, development, implementation, evaluation, and sustainment, and delivery of the resultant TDP. The TDP will accommodate self-paced training, group-paced training, dual-purpose training, blended training, learner assessments, and performance support systems. The scope of the TDPC multiple award contract is intended to support training system ISD requirements of Naval Air Systems Command’s Aviation Training Systems Program Office, as well as the four program directorates (Program Directorate for Aviation, Program Directorate for Surface, Program Directorate for Undersea, and Program Directorate for Cross-Warfare/International) at the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division. The aggregate not-to-exceed amount for these multiple award contracts, inclusive of options, is $780 million, and the companies will have the opportunity to compete for delivery orders under their respective LOTs. Work will be performed at each awardee’s facility site or at existing or future training sites. All orders are expected to be placed by August 2020, and all performance must be complete by August 2023. LOT I was procured as unrestricted with 30 contracts awarded. LOT II was procured as a 100 percent small business set-aside with 22 contracts awarded. Only 8 companies total won both LOTs.
The Naval Air Warfare Center Training System Division, Orlando, Fla., is the contracting activity.
