MEMORANDUM TO VSE TEAM
Pre-registration of DESP III Business Opportunities
The purpose of
this memorandum is to describe VSE's policies and procedures for
teammates to pre-register business opportunities under the VSE DESP III
Pre-registration of opportunities enables the VSE Team to proactively market
and facilitates rapid response to the Government's Performance Work Statements (PWS)
and Contract EngineeringTasks (CETs).
Business to the DESP III Contract" is a central theme in successfully supporting DESP III.
generation is a function of proactive, self-marketing or identification and
opportunities into CETs. VSE intends to
opportunities and, as opportunities are discovered that require unique skills or capabilities,
engage our teammates to position the VSE Team to be the ultimate winner of CET
competitions. It should be understood that given the nature of the DESP III Program
guarantee, nor is it able to provide, projected work to our teammates.
VSE management principal in the execution of the DESP III Program is to ensure a fair
opportunity for all our teammates to obtain work in support of Defense programs
they have actively
marketed. In addition, VSE reserves the right to identify the best program team available to
compete for CETs and ensure the highest confidence of success. Underlying this is the fact
that VSE, as a DESP III prime contractor, has privity of contract with the Government.
As such, VSE alone
is fully responsible to the Government for task performance, in support of the DESP III Program. In
order to fulfill these requirements and successfully market the DESP III Contract, VSE
has established a process for the pre-registration of business opportunities by
our teammates with
our DESP III Project Office.
A. PRE-REGISTRATION POLICY:
Opportunity pre-registration to support our marketing strategy
will be subject to the following polices:
Pre-registration of a business opportunity is allowed only as a
directed, specific and clearly defined effort or project. Registration of
generic work scopes or general categories of work is not authorized. For
example, you may not pre-register "all C-130 aircraft modifications" that may
possibly be contracted by the Air Logistics Centers C-130 Special Project
Office. You may register a specific opportunity that your company is pursuing
and actively marketing .E.G., installation of the Enhance Traffic and
Collision Avoidance System for the USAF C-130 reserve fleet.
An incumbent on any CET has first priority on any follow-on
efforts or modifications to that effort.
A "First Come, First Served" policy applies to all new
opportunities and is determined by the date/time the opportunity is received
by the VSE DESP III Project Management Office (PMO). Registration must be the result
of specific customer contact and work description as identified on the VSE
Team members who have formed a sub-team within the team and who
have registered the opportunity first will be the only company(ies) who can
bid on the CET once Ogden Air Logistics Center issues it.
VSE will be the final approval authority for pre-registering an
opportunity and for team composition in performance of a CET. VSE may
facilitate "teaming within the team" to optimize capabilities and quality
performance of a CET. VSE may also facilitate teaming when we believe a
capability or capacity issue exists. Other criteria may include Performance
Work Statement requirements, Government direction, past performance and the
achievement of VSE's small business goals.
All large business team members should be alert for teaming
opportunities within the team that support our Small and Disadvantaged
Business Participation Plan. VSE promotes "synergy within Team VSE".
B. PRE-REGISTRATION PROCEDURES:
procedures will be used when pre-registering DESP III business opportunities:
All opportunities will be pre-registered via e-mail to the VSE DESP III Project Manager.
This form is available on the VSE DESP III web site.
Pre-registration of a potential DESP III opportunity should be completed as soon as the opportunity can be
described in sufficient detail to satisfy the requirements of Policy Item 1 above.
The VSE Project Manager will ensure the opportunity is reviewed promptly. Reviews will focus on validity of the opportunity and whether or not the opportunity has already
been pre-registered and currently active. If determined to be
duplicative of, or synergistic with, another opportunity, the Project Manager will contact all
involved parties to coordinate how marketing efforts should be pursued. All
registered opportunities and related information will be protected and only available
to the VSE DESP III Project Manager and the teammate who registered the opportunity.
Upon registration, an opportunity
registration number will be assigned and a confirmation sent to the submitting teammate(s). The confirmation includes the opportunity
name and registration number, both of which should be used in all subsequent
correspondence regarding the opportunity.
- Our Business Development Manager and the VSE Project Manager will
be available to assist any teammate in turning an opportunity into a CET.
Teammates are required to update the status of their registered
opportunities as significant changes in status occur. A monthly review of opportunities
will be conducted by the PMO with teammates input to access the viability of all
