Osan, South Korea, Dec. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The department of the Army posted a solicitation today for electrical contractors to repair the public-address system at a Korean Combined Operations Intelligence Center (KCOIC) in Osan, South Korea. The current system in one base building is inoperable and warning signals which may warn occupants of dangerous conditions cannot be heard. This deadline for contractors to submit a proposal to win the contract is January 18, 2018.

Osan Airforce Base is the only U.S. Air Force facility in the Republic of Korea that was built “from scratch” during the Korean War. Many renovations throughout the years have grown the base and proven its importance as a prime location in the region. It sits less than 50 miles from the demilitarized zone.

The current contract solicitation calls for replacement of a new PA system console, microphones, the appropriate power supplies, 48 speakers and all wiring to connect the system. The contractor will supply all materials to complete the work, be responsible for all deliveries to the base, install the new system and remove and dispose of the old system. A quality assurance plan should also be considered by the contractor in order to place a competitive proposal.

In addition to the standard needs of any government contract proposal, this one should prove that the contactor has the ability to access the base through its RAPID gate system. This will require all personnel working for the contractor to go through background checks. A site visit is encouraged to gain knowledge about the work to be done and an understanding of base operations.

Contracting officer SFC Yang, has scheduled a visit for January 4, 2018 and offerors should submit their information to him by January 2 to gain temporary access to the base. He can be reached via email at ye.yang.mil@mail.mil.

In addition to meeting the solicitation requirements, before submitting a quote to the government, companies must also be registered in the System for Award Management (SAM). Registration in SAM is free, but businesses often need assistance filling out the forms in a timely manner and without error.

US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR), the world’s largest third-party government registration firm, assists companies who would like to submit bids to the government. USFCR’s expert case managers register companies on their behalf in the System for Award Management. They can also provide bid training and proposal writing services to give a business the best possible chance at winning a federal contract.
