Proposal Instructions and Conditions
It is anticipated that a number of cost-reimbursement contracts will be awarded as a result of this Request for Proposal; however, the Department reserves the right to negotiate on the basis of fixed-price contracts in individual cases.
These contracts may provide for the design, development, application, and evaluation of complete housing systems appropriate for volume production, identified below as Type A, or for research and advanced development of innovative concepts for systems, subsystems or components which may be used in future housing programs, identified below as Type B.
Type A contracts for the development of housing systems will be awarded to those responsible offerors whose proposals are determined to be technically superior and which demonstrate the capability of the offeror to perform the entire range of effort outlined in the Statement of Work.
These contracts will be awarded for the Phase I Design and Planning effort, as described in Attachment C, and will include an option providing for Prototype Construction in Phase II, The detailed work plan and cost requirements for the Phase II effort will be negotiated at the end of Phase I. The Government expects to exercise this option to proceed to prototype construction unless the Phase I efforts indicate, in the opinion of the Government, that the proposed system cannot be produced in adequate volume, will not be acceptable to prospective users, is not economically feasible, that the proposer is not qualified to proceed with the prototype, construction and production effort, or for such other reasons as the Government may determine.
Type B contracts for research and advanced development of innovative concepts will be awarded to those responsible offerors whose proposals for building systems, building elements or materials, land use concepts, or business considerations (including legal, financing, processing and man. agement techniques) are determined to be at a stage of development requiring additional design, development and testing prior to considering them for actual application in housing construction, and further determined to be of superior technical quality and/or potential. The contracts negotiated for this part of the program will include certain specified design and test effort only, with no initial option for prototype construction. Further support for testing, development or prototype construction of these concepts will be negotiated individually as may be appropriate in each instance, based on a continuing assessment of the concepts and the results of work performed.
Prospective offerors are advised that a general briefing and discussion of the Request for Proposal and the general program of Operation BREAKTHROUGH will be held in the Departmental Auditorium, on Constitution Avenue between 12th and 14th Streets, Washington, D.C. at 9:00 a.m. sharp on Friday, July 11, 1969.
