NOTICE TEXT: Department of Transportation, Transportation Security
Administration, Headquarters TSA; This is a combined
synopsis/solicitation for commercial services prepared in accordance
with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional
information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the
only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written
solicitation will not be issued. This solicitation, DTSA20-02-R-00466 is
issued as a request for proposal (RFP). The solicitation document and
incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal
Acquisition Circular 2001-07. This solicitation is unrestricted. The
associated NAICS code is 541690 and the small business size standard is
$6 Million. The LINE ITEM is as follows: 0001 - Defensive Tactics
Techniques Training, QTY= 1 JOB. This project shall provide training to
uniformed federal law enforcement officers in support of our nation's
airports. The training must consist of in-depth coverage of the
following prospectus to the satisfaction of the Training Academy
Director: Survival Learning Research - This subject area examines
research related to educational psychology motor learning science and
neurobiology, and applies the research to the design of use of force
systems. Students will learn why simple gross motor skills and systems
with few techniques are more compatible for use of force training than
other methods. Control Principles - This subject discusses principles of
control, survival reaction time, and tactical positioning. Tactical
Handcuffing - Tactical speed handcuffing provides immediate subject
control and reduces risk to the officer. This system is designed to
train the student in a method that will be the same under handcuffing
conditions of standing, kneeling or prone, with the completion time of
three (3) seconds. Pressure Point Control Tactics - This subject area
addresses a system of controlling subjects by applying as little as two
(2) pounds of finger touch pressure to selected pressure points on head
and neck. These pressure points are applied to control passive or
defensive resisance and are highly effective for officers of any size or
strength level. Joint Locks - Escort position resistance is one of the
four most common types of resistance encountered by officers. This
subject area teaches officers joint lock techniques designed
specifically to control escort position resistance. Defensive
Counterstrikes - This subject area teaches reflexive reaction to a
physical attack when impact weapons or firearms are not appropriate. The
students will learn to neutralize an aggressive assault with a basic
system of blocks, punches and kicks, designed to control a subject with
minimal chance of injury. Impact Weapon Systems - Training from this
subject area centers on the development of a collapsible/telescoping
baton. This effective system employs the use of nerve targets instead of
joints and bones, which decreases the potential of causing connective
tissue damage and bone fractures. Handgun Retention and Disarming - This
uni teaches a simple system of disarming and handgun or long gun
retention. The students will learn holstered defenses, drawn weapon
defenses as well as maintaining a long gun in the slug or open
positions. The contractor shall deliver training to the initial class of
students during the specified period of performance. In addition, the
contractor shall provide training to the TSA Training Staff and certify
the newly trained TSA staff members to a level of "DT Instructor

contractor provided training materials. Classes will not exceed 48
students and will run continuously at the rate of one or more per week.
The cost for this training shall be based on a per-student basis. The
student population will not exceed 4,500 students during the period of
performance. The contractor will provide teams consisting of not less
than two (2) instructors to include: one (1) Lead Instructor to each
class of 48 students. Each training class does not need to be
consecutive in nature, but should be spread over a ten-day period. TSA
shall provide to the contrator, at its discretion, all necessary
training equipment to include kickbags, batons, firearm props, and
adequate facilities to conduct the training. At the conclusion of the
