NOTICE TEXT: Department of Transportation, Transportation Security
Administration, Headquarters TSA; TSA Broad Agency Announcement
(BAA-02-02) The Department of Transportation (DOT)/Transportation
Security Agency (TSA) has initiated an accelerated competition for the
management of a program of critical importance and urgency to our
country. This program is to support and coordinate the establishment of
the TSA Public Affairs Office. The purpose of this announcement is to
solicit responses from firms capable of being the prime contractor. Any
potential prime contractor must have the experience, resources, and past
performance judged to offer a low risk and high probability of success.
Specifically, the prime contractor must provide, at a minimum, a wide
range of communications and Human Resource services that require
knowledge of the public relations business and the federal civil
service; experience in creating an effective communications and public
affairs organization; provide staffing support for both Headquarters and
regional offices; develop public communication strategies to support the
establishment of TSA presence at all airports in the US where passenger
service is offered; and provide support staff to respond to news media
inquires. The Transportation Security Administration has established the
following anticipated subcontracting goals for this program: 40% of
subcontracting dollars be awarded to small business; 5% to Small
Disadvantaged Business; 5 % to Woman-Owned Business; 3% to Service
Veteran-owned small business. As stated above, this announcement is
seeking sources that can compete at the prime contractor level. Any firm
with the experience, resources, and past performance sufficient to
establish its capability to perform as the prime contractor shall submit
a capability statement not to exceed five pages (at no less than
10-point font) that describes the specific contribution the firm could
make to satisfy the various tasks cited above. The capability
statement(s) is/are to be emailed to the Contracting Officer at
richie.lieber@xxxxxxxxxxxx not later than 1:00 PM EST on Friday,
February 22, 2002. All capability statements received from firms
interested in participating at the subcontract level will be provided to
the prospective prime contractors. Statements exceeding the page lengths
cited above or received after the due date will be discarded. The
importance of this initiative to our country and its people is
self-evident, as is its urgency. Those who are chosen will be part of a
mission-critical team responsible with TSA to success in protecting the
American people and guests of this great nation. INTERNET ADDRESS:
