This acquisition is for the procurement and delivery of two (2) mobile railway car spotters. This is a commercial item procurement to support the US Navy Railroad requirements.  In the past we tried to procure car spotter equipment utilizing small business set-aside acquisition strategy and received two proposals.  One was deemed non-responsive and the other was considered a large business.  Therefore, because of these developments, the acquisition strategy for this solicitation is recommended to be unlimited full and open competition.

Title V, of Public Law 100-656 requires that Federal agencies make available its Procurement Forecast to the Small Business Administration (SBA) and to interested business owners. The forecast listing is not intended to be all-inclusive. The Forecast is one of many tools available to small businesses. All projected procurements are subject to revision or cancellation. Final decisions on the extent of competition, small business participation, estimated value, or any aspect of the procurement action will not be made until each procurement is initiated. The forecast data is for planning purposes, does not represent a pre-solicitation synopsis, does not constitute an invitation for bid or request for proposal, and is not a commitment by the government to purchase the desired products and services. Actual solicitation notices will be posted on as prescribed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR)
