  • Dayton IT Symposium Update for NETCENTSII

    The NETCENTSII Update provided by Stephen Davis, Chief, Enterprise Systems Branch, AFPEO EIS, highlighted four “Notable Aspects” for the NETCENTS-2 contract:

    • Mandatory Use Policy Approved 16 May 2011
    • Small Business Benefits
    • Small Business Graduate Transition (AKA Off-Ramp)
    • On-Ramps

    The approved Mandatory Use Policy makes  NETCENTSII mandatory for all USAF units (exception ITPS contract) which will support the “big” Air Force efforts to track and control IT spend. It is intended to ensure adherence to the AF Enterprise Architecture. There will be a Waiver process but it is designed to require substantial justification (read: a disincentive). Mr. Davis highlighted the support for Small Business contracting in the two SB Companion contracts (NetOps, Appsvs) and the ITPS set-aside for Service Disabled Veteran businesses. Small business primes who experience organic growth will be offered an opportunity to transition to the unrestricted contract while small business primes who fail to recertify due to merger or acquisition will “graduate OFF” the NETCENTSII contract. This effectively means “no buy-ins” post award as Harris Corp did of NETCENTS Small Business prime Multimax on the existing contract. There will be “On-Ramps” as needed to augment the Small Business contract pool to ensure adequate participation and competition by small business. Mr. Davis stated the same RFP process and evaluation criteria will be used for On-Ramps.

  • NETOPS Small Business ON/OFF Ramp Strategy

    The common theme in the many discussions with NETCENTS Primes and NETCENTSII hopefuls attending and exhibiting at last week’s CyberSpace 2010 conference was that the delay in NETCENTSII RFP release was due to PEO level questions on the NETOPS and Infrastructure Solutions Small Business strategy surrounding ON/OFF Ramping companies who grow out of the size standard.

    The alternative theme was that the GAO/Delex Decision – “Rule of Two” planning was the delay. At the December Air Force IT Day hosted by AFCEA NOVA, the 754th ELSG Technical Director indicated the Delex Decision/Rule of Two was not part of NETCENTS strategy as DOD Acquisition Authority had not provided specific direction on the ruling.
