INSTRUCTION 4 - MAGNITUDE OF EFFORT

Sandia believes that the approximate total value of this effort for the three staff
augmentation contracts for Professional, Information Technology and Support labor
segments which will result from this RFQ ranges from $345 million to $706 million.
However, Sandia cannot guarantee or assure Offerors that the actual effort required
will be at or will even approach this level.



INSTRUCTION 5 - RIGHT TO SPLIT THIS RFQ INTO MULTIPLE CONTRACTS

Sandia reserves the right to contract for any, all, or none of the items or services
with no penalty to either Sandia or the Offeror. Sandia intends to award a total of
three contracts for the following three labor segments: Professional Services,
Information Technology Services, and Support Services as a result of this
solicitation.



INSTRUCTION 6 - DEBARMENT DISCLOSURE

Offerors must disclose whether they or their principals are debarred, suspended, or
proposed for debarment by the Federal Government. Offeror's response to this
solicitation shall be deemed certification that neither the Offeror nor any of the
Offeror's principals are debarred, suspended, or proposed for debarment by the
Federal Government; however, if any of these conditions apply, Offeror must clearly
disclose its status, and/or the status of its principals, in writing within Offeror's
quotation/response to this solicitation.



INSTRUCTION 7 - FURNISH NAME OF AUTHORIZED PERSON(S)

Furnish name, title and phone number of the person(s) authorized by the Offeror to
offer, negotiate, accept award of, and administer this proposed contract.



INSTRUCTION 8 - DON'T USE SANDIA IN ADS

Offerors are not permitted to use Sandia National Laboratories or the Department of
Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration in any advertisements to recruit
personnel.



INSTRUCTION 9 - CONTRACT AWARD BY DOWN-SELECT AND THEN BEST-VALUE DETERMINATION

Offeror shall quote its most favorable terms, from both a price/cost and technical
standpoint, since any contracts or agreements resulting from this solicitation may be
awarded on the basis of initial quotations. The quotations determined to be the
                                                          Page 4 of 61

                                                          Revision No:   0


overall best-value to Sandia will be selected. Best overall value will be determined
by comparing differences based on Offeror's relative capabilities and price/cost in
relation to other quotations received. A down select process based on price will be
used prior to performing technical evaluations. Technical evaluations will not be
performed for Quotations beyond the down selected quantities.

The Price Quotations from all Offerors for any of the three labor segments will be
reviewed by Sandia to determine the lowest priced quotations for each labor segment
based on the Offeror’s Proposed Composite Multiplier (PCM) for a given labor segment.
(Refer to Solicitation Instruction 20, paragraph IV, (3) b., herein). The PCM factor
will be calculated by an Excel spreadsheet formula by weighing the following 4
multipliers as quoted by the Offeror with the factors listed below which are based on
estimated averages from the current Staff Augmentation contracts. These 4
multipliers (minus the PCM) are from the Allowable Charges Clause paragraph A of the
RFQ)*:

NMN = New Mexico Non-pre-select
NMP = New Mexico Pre-select
CN = California Non-pre-select
CP = California Pre-select

PCM = Proposed Composite Multiplier

Factors:

.64   =   Sandia estimate of total non-pre-selects
.36   =   Sandia estimate of total pre-selects
.90   =   Sandia estimate of total Sandia/NM Contract Associates
.10   =   Sandia estimate of total Sandia/CA Contract Associates
          Formula for calculating PCM

(NMN x .64 + NMP x .36) x .90 + (CN x .64 + CP x .36) x .10 = PCM

* Note: IDLRM(s) are not included in the PCM calculation.



INSTRUCTION 10 – DISCUSSIONS

Sandia may hold discussions with a limited number of Offerors having the highest
probability of success after Sandia completes its evaluation of written quotations.



INSTRUCTION 11 - SANDIA WILL NOT RETURN QUOTATIONS

Sandia shall take title to Offeror's quotations, except for any proprietary data, and
will not return quotations. The entire cost of preparing and submitting a quotation
shall be borne by the Offerors.

INSTRUCTION 15 - FURNISH FOCI

A Foreign Ownership, Control, or Influence (FOCI) determination (facility code/cage
code) is required for this effort. Please review the information noted below and
notify the Sandia Contracting Representative immediately if Offeror’s firm has
foreign ownership, officers, or other interests that may jeopardize the Offeror’s
ability to obtain/retain FOCI certification, as it may render the Offeror unable to
perform the Statement of Work.

If selected for award, Offeror will be required to submit the appropriate
documentation identified below, if any of the conditions identified below apply:

1. Access and electronically submit a complete Foreign Ownership, Control, or
Influence Package by using E-FOCI as required by DOE/NNSA, if any of the following
conditions apply. This is available at https://foci.td.anl.gov/.

   a. Offeror does not have an active facility clearance, which is granted upon
favorable FOCI determination,

   b. five (5) years have lapsed since the last FOCI determination was rendered,

   c. significant changes have occurred in thresholds since the last FOCI
determination, or

   d. changes have occurred in ownership or control of the Offeror and/or any tier
parent(s).

2. If the Offeror already has an active facility clearance, and none of the above
conditions apply, provide either:

   a. The Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA)
approved FOCI certification (including the Facility Code for the company) and
supporting documentation, or

  b. the most current (must be less than one year old) Department of Defense form SF
328 entitled "Certificate Pertaining to Foreign Interest", supporting documentation,
and certification that the SF 328 remains accurate, current, and complete.

(Note: The second option is applicable for Offerors with already established
Department of Defense (DOD) facility clearances.)



INSTRUCTION 16 - Q OR L CLEARED

Offerors who are selected for award will be required to provide staff augmentation
personnel (Contract Associates) who hold DOE security clearances (Q/L) or who will be
required to apply for DOE security clearances. Please note that Sandia cannot award
a contract which requires access authorizations without the Offeror being granted a
facility clearance (being FOCI approved) first. The current breakdown of Q/L cleared
and uncleared Contract Associates for a population in excess of 1,000 is estimated as
follows:

establishing source and reasonableness of price, as well as the results of review and
evaluation of subcontract quotations.



INSTRUCTION 18 - SUBMIT A BALANCE SHEET

quotation. Financial statements prepared by independent Certified Public Accountants
or the type customarily found in annual reports to stockholders will usually suffice.

   (3) Price (DLRMs and IDLRMs)

       a. In order to provide insight into historical salary data and occupation
          descriptions which may help in preparing a price quotation, the following
          is provided:

            (1) Attachment I to this RFQ entitled, “Historical Staff Augmentation
                Salary Data, Occupational Titles and Associated Metrics” provides
                salary data and Associated metrics for the current Staff Augmentation

                       anticipates that the DLRM(s) for preselected personnel will not
                       include a cost factor for recruiting and is therefore anticipated to

               services required by this contract regardless of the method in which
               these costs are normally recovered or billed for in the Offeror's
               current accounting system. Such costs shall include but may not be
               limited to benefits, insurance and indirects.
         (iv) The IDLRM(s) shall only include the legally required payroll charges
               associated with the labor charges paid such as FICA, FUTA, SUTA, etc.

               the Offeror’s choosing.

   c. The direct labor rate (DLR) portion of the billing rate(s) will be
      determined at the time individual(s) are selected under the contract(s).

   d. The final billing rate(s) will be comprised of the DLR X the DLRM X
      the standard time hours worked plus if applicable, any shift differentials,
      overtime and double time. (Refer to Section I, Clause 5 – Allowable
      Charges – Time and Materials (T&M) for more details).

      detail to enable Sandia to perform an evaluation of the criteria identified
      below. The Administrative part of the Offeror’s Quotation shall address

Small business concern, means a concern, including its affiliates, that is
independently owned and operated, not dominant in the field of operation in which it
is bidding on Government contracts, and qualified as a small business under the
criteria and size standards in 13 CFR Part 121 (see Federal Acquisition Regulation
19.102). Such a concern is not dominant in its field of operation when it does not
exercise a controlling or major influence on a national basis in a kind of business
activity in which a number of business concerns are primarily engaged. In
determining whether dominance exists, consideration shall be given to all appropriate
factors, including volume of business, number of employees, financial resources,
competitive status or position, ownership or control of materials, process, patents,
license agreements, facilities, sales territory, and nature of business activity.

contractor personnel, hereinafter referred to as Contract Associates under the then
current staff augmentation contracts at Sandia/NM and Sandia/CA.

1.2     Objective

The Contractor shall provide Sandia in Albuquerque and Carlsbad, New Mexico and in
Livermore, California with Contract Associates in one of the following labor
segments. The Sandia Contracting Representative (SCR) or the Sandia Delegated
Representative (SDR) if so delegated in the "Delegation of Authority" clause herein
shall make the final determination as to which of the three labor segments individual
SRs will be assigned to.

Each of the labor segments described below shall have a pre-select and a non-
preselect multiplier. “Pre-select” refers to Contract Associates who are not
recruited by the Contractor under this contract. “Non pre-select” refers to Contract
Associates selected to work at Sandia whom the Contractor recruited through its own
efforts. All of the existing staff augmentation workforce, at contract award, will
be assigned as pre-selects to each of the respective Staff Augmentation contracts for
their labor segment.

1.2.1 Labor Segments

Following are the descriptions of labor segments covered by these contracts.
Contractors have the primary responsibility for the labor segment for which they are
awarded a contract and back up responsibility for the other two labor segments.

The labor segment awarded to the Contractor is: TBD.*

*To be completed at contract award.

General/Professional: This labor segment includes Contract Associates engaged in a
wide range of more complex technical and administrative activities fundamental to the
mission of the laboratories. These assignments normally require the attainment of an
advanced technical/business degree; and the ability to work independently in
unstructured situations to develop, evaluate, and apply technical/business concepts
to solve complex problems involving research, development, systems analysis, design,
testing, analysis, budgeting, planning, and management. Contract Associates under
this labor segment are expected to exercise a high degree of initiative, judgment,
and latitude in carrying out assignments. This labor segment includes all
professional level scientific, business and engineering disciplines that are
considered to be “exempt” under the Fair Labor Standards Act, but may also include
disciplines that are considered to be “non-exempt” under the Fair Labor Standards
Act.

Information Technology (IT): This labor segment includes Contract Associates engaged
in a wide range of disciplines that encompass activities associated with Information
Systems, including such functions as: information processes (data modeling,
standards, etc.); applications development (scientific, engineering, and business
systems); information services (electronic mail, help desk, local area network
management, etc.); computing and communication systems (mainframes, servers,
telecommunications, etc.); and the definition of an information architecture.
Information architecture defines an approach to a corporate information network,

assignments range from the attainment of a technical/trade school certificate,
associates degree or equivalent experience to the attainment of an advanced

H. Travel and/or Relocation Reimbursement, and Compensation for Sandia's Hiring of
Contractor Employee(s)

   (1) Travel and/or Relocation Reimbursement

       a. Fact-finding discussions:
If authorized on the SR by the Sandia Requester, Sandia will compensate the
Contractor for expenses incurred by the candidate, as evidenced by valid receipts or
documentation for travel to and from Albuquerque, NM, for fact-finding discussions
related to an SR. Reimbursement expenses are limited to the air coach fare for one
person, per diem and lodging not exceeding rates specified in the Federal Travel
Regulations.

       b. Relocation paid by Sandia National Laboratories:
If authorized on the SR by the Sandia Requester, Sandia will compensate the
Contractor in accordance with the Federal Travel Regulations for expenses incurred by
the Contract Associate, as evidenced by valid receipts or documentation, for
relocation of the Contract Associate from point of origin to Albuquerque, NM or
Livermore, CA. To be considered for reimbursement these expenses must be incurred
within 120 days after the Contractor is notified of the selection of the Contract
Associate for assignment at Sandia or such other period as is agreed to in writing
between the SCR and the Contractor.

If a Contract Associate, within 12 months of the actual start date at Sandia under
this contract, voluntarily terminates or is discharged for reasons within the
Contract Associate’s control, the Contract Associate’s employer will be responsible
for reimbursing Sandia for all costs paid by Sandia for relocation benefits for that
Contract Associate.

      c. Relocation paid by Contractor
Relocation expenses in accordance with the Federal Travel Regulations shall be
reimbursed on a prorated basis if a Contractor furnished employee is hired by Sandia
as a Sandia employee within twelve (12) months of their beginning work under this
contract as applicable per participant. This applies only to the extent the
following costs were reimbursed to the employee by the Contractor or Subcontractor
and not previously reimbursed by Sandia.
- Shipment of household goods
- Mileage (at the current rate authorized by the IRS) for up to two vehicles driven
  to new location
- Reimbursement for lodging en-route provided the participant is required to travel
  at least 400 miles that day
- Meal and incidental allowance for participant and dependents
- Storage of household goods for up to 60 days

The basis for determining the pro-rated portion to be paid by Sandia shall be the
number of whole months short of one (1) year the Contract Associate did not work
under the contract divided by twelve (12).

The payment of relocation expenses and the tax implications of reporting moving
expenses on a W-2 is the responsibility of the contractor.

    (2) Compensation for Sandia's Hiring of Contractor Employee(s)

In the event that Sandia hires one or more individuals assigned by the Contractor to
work at Sandia under this agreement within the first year of their beginning to
provide services to Sandia, Sandia will compensate the Contractor as follows:

The Contractor employee's then current hourly billing rate will be first multiplied
by 1920 then by the percentage as shown on the table below.   In order to determine
the applicable percentage, Sandia will begin by determining the start date of the
Contract Associate. This will be done by querying the Staff Augmentation database at
Sandia which will reflect the first date the Contract Associate reported to work at
Sandia under the contract. The time on assignment(s) will be calculated by counting
the number of days from the start date to the date of hire at Sandia. That number
would then be divided by 30 and rounded down to determine the months worked. The
Contractor will be compensated for the time as indicated in the table below. This
payment will be made in addition to the reimbursement for relocation expenses (if
applicable) as described in paragraph 1 above. The Contractor shall submit a
separate Contract Associate Travel and Business Expense Invoice, SF 4601-CAT for
these charges.

B.   PROCEDURAL COMPLIANCE WITH PROCESS FOR OBTAINING PHYSICAL ACCESS

   1.   The Contractor shall in initiating the process for gaining physical access,
ensure:

     a. compliance with procedures established by DOE/NNSA in providing its cleared
employee(s) with any forms directed by DOE/NNSA;

          b. that the employee properly completes any such forms; and

     c. that the employee(s) submits the forms to the person designated by the Sandia
Contracting Representative (SCR).

   2. The Contractor shall in completing the process for gaining physical access,
ensure that Contractor's cleared employee:

     a. cooperates with the officials responsible for granting access to DOE/NNSA
owned or leased facilities; and

          b. provides additional information, requested by those officials.

C.   SECURITY BADGE DENIAL

The Contractor understands and agrees that DOE/NNSA may unilaterally deny a security
badge to an employee and that the denial remains effective for that employee unless
                                                          Page 54 of 61

DOE/NNSA subsequently determines that access may be granted. Upon notice from
DOE/NNSA that an employee's application for a security badge is, or will be denied,
the Contractor shall promptly identify and submit the forms referred to in
subparagraph B of this clause for the substitute employee. The denial of a security
badge to individual employees by DOE/NNSA shall not be cause for extension of the
Period of Performance (POP) of this contract or any Contractor claim against Sandia
or the DOE/NNSA.

D.   BADGE RETURN

The Contractor shall return the badge(s) or other credential(s) provided by Sandia or
DOE/NNSA pursuant to this clause, granting physical access to DOE/NNSA-owned or
leased facilities by the Contractor's employee(s), upon:

     1.     the termination of this contract;

     2.     the expiration of this contract;

   3.   the termination of employment of an individual performing work under this
contract or any subcontractor employees performing work under this contract; or

     4.     demand by Sandia or the DOE/NNSA for return of the badge.

E.   APPLICABILITY TO SUBCONTRACTORS

The Contractor shall include this clause in its entirety, in any subcontract at any
tiers awarded in the performance of this contract, in which a cleared employee(s) of
the subcontractor will require physical access to DOE/NNSA-owned or leased
facilities.

and information concerning the performance of work thereunder, shall be made aware of
the need to protect such documents and information

III.    Notify the Sandia OPSEC Program Manager by calling 505/844-5244 of any
request for information on Sandia or Sandia POs, and/or contracts not directly

The Contractor agrees to (1) furnish phase-in training and (2) exercise its best
efforts and cooperation to effect an orderly and efficient transition to a successor.

(b) The Contractor shall, upon the Sandia Contracting Representative's (SCR) written
notice, (1) furnish phase-in, phase-out services for up to 90 days after this
Contract expires and (2) negotiate in good faith a plan with a successor to determine
the nature and extent of phase-in, phase-out services required. The plan shall
specify a training program and a date for transferring responsibilities for each
division of work described in the plan, and shall be subject to the SCR's approval.
The Contractor shall provide sufficient experienced personnel during the phase-in,
phase-out period to ensure that the services called for by this Contract are
maintained at the required level of proficiency.

(c) The Contractor shall allow as many personnel as practicable to remain on the job
to help the successor maintain the continuity and consistency of the services
required by this contract. The Contractor also shall disclose necessary personnel

CLAUSE 20 - LIMITATION ON SUBCONTRACTING

(a) This clause does not apply to the unrestricted portion of a partial set-aside.

(b) By submission of an offer and execution of a contract, the Contractor agrees that
in performance of the contract at least 50 percent of the labor costs of contract
performance incurred for personnel shall be expended for employees of the concern.



CLAUSE 21 - EMERGENCY CLOSURE

Whenever work cannot be performed by the Contractor on-site at a Sandia National
Laboratories site due to a emergency based on a DOE security determination resulting
in the closure of a Sandia National Laboratories site, the Contractor may invoice
Sandia National Laboratories and be paid for such periods as if regularly scheduled
work had been performed unless such periods are designated by Sandia as mandatory
non-work days or were previously scheduled as non-work days by the working
individuals. In addition, immediately following the announcement of the emergency
closure, the Contractor is responsible for contacting the Sandia Delegated
Representative (SDR) identified in this contract, or cognizant Sandia personnel to
inquire as to the availability of work that could be performed off-site during
the closure. The Contractor agrees to take all reasonable steps to mitigate the
amount that would be billed to Sandia where no off-site work can be identified.
Under no circumstances may the amount billed per individual Contractor employee
exceed 9 hours per day or 44 hours total within any given fiscal year (the fiscal
year begins October 1st).

and Sandia California, building 925, are required to be screened for tuberculosis.
Sandia registered nurses will administer the screening skin test (PPD) following the
guidelines in the Sandia Tuberculosis Surveillance Procedure (Op-Med 057).

potential for exposure to infectious diseases through patient contact and persons not
directly involved in patient care, but who are potentially at risk for occupational
exposure (e.g., clerical workers). Medical evaluation and consultation required for
positive skin reactions will be the responsibility of the contract associate and/or
their employer.

CLAUSE 23 - INVENTIONS AND WORKS OF AUTHORSHIP BY CONTRACTOR

In accordance with Class Advance Waiver W(C)-90-014 of U.S. and Foreign Rights for
Inventions Made by Particular Individuals at DOE National Laboratories:

1. For any invention conceived or first reduced to practice by one or more
Contractor employees under this contract, Contractor agrees to assign to Sandia
Corporation (Sandia), its successors and assigns, Contractor's entire right, title,
and interest to the invention and in and to all resulting patents, wherever they may
be granted, as well as reissues or extensions of the patents, in return for Sandia
providing to Contractor in consideration for such assignment a pro rata share taken
from twenty percent (20%) of any royalties obtained by Sandia in any licensing of the
invention, with such pro rata share being paid annually to Contractor.

For any work of authorship (e.g. a computer program) prepared in whole or in part by
one or more Contractor employees, Contractor agrees to assign to Sandia, its
successors and assigns, Contractor's entire right, title and interest in the work of
authorship in return for Sandia providing to Contractor in consideration for such
assignment a pro rata share taken from twenty percent (20%) of any royalties obtained
by Sandia in any licensing of the work of authorship, with such pro rata share being
paid annually to Contractor.

A pro rata share is defined as the number of Contractor employees listed as inventors
on a patent application or issued patent describing and claiming the invention or
listed as authors on a work of authorship divided by the total number of listed
inventors or authors.

In the event of licensing of multiple patents and/or works of authorship as a
package, a pro rata share is defined as the number of instances in which a Contractor
employee is listed as an inventor in the multiple patents or as an author in the
multiple works of authorship divided by the total number of instances in which
inventors or authors are listed in the multiple patents and/or works of authorship
being licensed.

Sandia shall have first rights in deciding whether to file a patent application on
any invention conceived or first reduced to practice under this contract. If Sandia
chooses not to file an application then Contractor may request a Waiver of Title from
DOE and file a patent application at their own expense. Sandia shall have first
right in deciding whether to obtain the copyright on any works of authorship prepared
under this contract. If Sandia chooses not to obtain the copyright then Contractor
may request copyright from DOE and proceed at their own expense.

2. Contractor agrees to implement a royalty sharing program for its employees at
Sandia National Laboratories.
3. Contractor agrees to report to Sandia any inventions conceived or first reduced
to practice under this contract and any works of authorship prepared under this
contract.   For inventions made jointly by Contractor employees and Sandia employees,
such reporting shall be made using the Sandia Technical Advance Form. For an
invention made solely by Contractor employees, such reporting can be made using a
form which Contractor uses to report the invention to DOE.

CLAUSE 26 - "INTERIM" Q CLEARANCE - 612-IQ (10-99)

Sandia anticipates that some or all of the work to be performed under this contract
will require the Contractor's employee(s) to work with or on classified data or
material. Therefore, the Contractor shall furnish or propose to furnish only those
of its employees who are "Q" cleared or who are "Q" clearable. In the event the
Contractor chooses to furnish "Q" clearable employees, those employees will be asked
to participate in the Department of Energy's (DOE) Accelerated Access Authorization
Program (AAAP).   The AAAP is fully explained in the attachment to this Request For
Quotation/Contract titled, Accelerated Access Authorization Program.

The Contractor's employee(s) willingness to participate in the AAAP must be supported
by consent forms signed by the Contractor's employee(s) proposed for work under this
contract. Signed consent forms must accompany the Contractor's reply to the Request
for Quotation (RFQ). Contractor shall agree to process AAAP clearance requests for
additional or replacement persons after contract award when requested to do so by the
SCR.

The Department of Energy (DOE) will bear all AAAP costs associated with the
Contractor's personnel submittals either in reply to the RFQ or to any later SCR
requests for additional or replacement persons. The Contractor is therefore strongly
encouraged to submit only those of its employees it believes have a good possibility
of meeting the AAAP requirements.



CLAUSE 27 - COMPLIANCE WITH INTERNET PROTOCOL VERSION 6 (IPV6) - 294-IP (08-06)

If this contract involves the acquisition of Information Technology (IT) that uses
Internet Protocol (IP) technology, the contractor agrees that: (1) all deliverables
that involve IT that uses IP (products, services, software, etc.) will comply with
IPv6 standards and interoperate with both IPv6 and IPv4 systems and products; and (2)
it has IPv6 technical support for development and implementation and fielded product
management available. If the contractor plans to offer a deliverable that involves
IT that is not initially compliant, the contractor agrees to: (1) obtain the Sandia
Contracting Representative's approval before starting work on the deliverable; (2)
provide a migration path and firm commitment to upgrade to IPv6 for all application
and product features by June 2008; and (3) have IPv6 technical support for
development and implementation and fielded product management available.

Should the contractor find that the statement of work or specifications of this
contract do not conform to the IPv6 standard, it must notify the Sandia Contracting
Representative of such nonconformance and act in accordance with instructions of the
Sandia Contracting Representative.
