IDIQ Contract Vehicles

Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract vehicles are a key enabler for growth and to designed to provide maximum value, flexibility, and a streamlined competitive mechanism for Federal Government customers to buy WW Technology Group solutions

Who Can Use It

USAF and other Federal agencies

What Is the Scope?

The IDIQ has a broad scope for supporting system design, analysis, V&V, and certification tasks:

  • Application of the EDICT toolset for model-based engineering, including enhancements and transition to programs  technologies for the transition/transfer from the laboratory results to the Warfighter environment.
  • Architectural Analysis/Assessment of system properties: technologies for use by development teams to determine where the system needs to be improved to eliminate risk and also where excessive protection mechanisms exist that introduce higher cost due to over-design.
  • Model transformation and extraction components and model profiles required for integration: technologies for importing models constructed by developers and facilitating
    seamless integration with customer tool chains.
  • Information assurance requirements, design and implementation: technologies for use by
    program offices, design teams and independent analysis teams to determine reasonableness and
    feasibility of requirements, design options and to verify implementations.
  • Security and safety analysis and product generation: technologies for integrated analysis
    of system security and safety that is currently performed by separate analysis teams who may be
    unaware of coupled concerns.

How Does It Work

Step 1: Pre-proposal activity
Contract the AFRL PMO who will confirm scope and assist in process. As required by this IDIQ, the PMO is the single point for all transactions. Contractors are encouraged to work with their government customers to help define requirements.

Step 2: The government releases an RFOP
Typical RFOPs include a Statement of Objectives (SOD) or a Statement of Work (SOW), any assumptions by the government, instructions for completing the proposal, and any Contract Data Requirements Lists (CDRLs) required.

Step 3: A proposal is created
Using the materials provided by the government, WWTG responds with a proposal. Typical proposals include a management/technical proposal, pricing, basis of estimate, travel worksheet, and material pricing backup. Typical time for proposal generation is seven days, with some leeway for large or complex proposals.

Step 4: The government reviews the proposal
The government reviews the documentation provided by the contractor and requests any clarifications or additional material. Government engineers review the technical aspects, while the government program manager reviews for risk and cost reasonableness.

Step 5: Negotiations take place
Cost and Fixed-Price orders may require some negotiation.

Step 6: A Delivery/Task Order is placed
Task Orders are routinely placed in 21 days or less.
