2.2       BACKGROUND

2.2.1 AGENCY / ORGANIZATIONAL MISSIONS

The Contractor shall support the following agencies / bureaus with LMR equipment.

2.2.1.1        DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR

2.2.1.1.1             BUREAU OF INDIAN AFFAIRS

The mission of the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is to:
     uphold, protect, and advocate inherent sovereign rights of the American Indian Tribes,
       and Alaskan Native Tribes
     enhance and maintain the integrity of Tribes
     advocate for and to carry the policies of self determination, self government and
       government to government relationships, and
     identify and justify the resources necessary to carry out these responsibilities

                DESCRIPTION/SPECIFICATIONS/STATEMENT OF WORK


Federal Assistance program, which distributes hundreds of millions of dollars in excise taxes on
fishing and hunting equipment to state fish and wildlife agencies.

2.2.1.1.3              BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) was established in 1946 through the consolidation of
the General Land Office (created in 1812) and the U.S. Grazing Service (formed in 1934). The
functions of the BLM are also addressed in the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of
1976 (FLPMA).

The BLM is responsible for carrying out a variety of programs for the management and
conservation, of resources on 258 million surface acres, as well as 700 million acres of
subsurface mineral estate. These public lands make up about 13 percent of the total land surface
of the United States and more than 40 percent of all land managed by the Federal government.
The job of balancing this mix of resources and usage grows more complex each year, as the
population growth in the West creates new pressures and heightens existing management
challenges. With over 68.3 million people living in the region today, the West continues to be
the fastest-growing area in the nation. The population growth (and the urbanization that
accompanies it) places new demands on BLM-managed lands.

Working with its partners at the local, state, and national levels, the BLM’s mission is to ensure
the health and productivity of the public lands for current and future generations.

2.2.1.1.4              NATIONAL PARK SERVICE

On August 25, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed the act creating the National Park
Service, a new federal bureau in the Department of the Interior responsible for protecting the 35
national parks and monuments then managed by the Department and those yet to be established.
This ―Organic Act‖ states that ―the Service thus established shall promote and regulate the use of
the Federal areas known as national parks, monuments and reservations . . . by such means and
measures as conform to the fundamental purpose of the said parks, monuments and reservations,
which purpose is to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life
therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will
leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.‖

The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of
the national park system for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future
generations. The Park Service cooperates with partners to extend the benefits of natural and
cultural resource conservation and outdoor recreation throughout this country and the world.

Beyond national parks, the National Park Service helps communities across America preserve
and enhance important local heritage and close-to-home recreational opportunities. Grants and
assistance are offered to register, save and record historic places; create community parks and
local recreation facilities; conserve rivers and streams, and develop trails and greenways

2.2.2 PREVIOUS ORDERING ENVIRONMENT

A majority of the LMR acquisition requirements were met via a group of DOI-wide Indefinite
Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts with equipment providers. More details on the
items that were available for ordering can be found at:

http://www.blm.gov/natacq/IDIQ/index.html

2.3       SCOPE

The scope of this effort is to obtain TIA-102 (Association of Public-Safety Communications
Officials International (APCO) Project 25) compliant LMR equipment. In association with the
LMR equipment (and associated accessories) purchased under the BPA, the Contractor may also
provide ancillary services (e.g. installation, warranty support and training), provided that the
services are offered within the Contractor’s applicable GSA Schedule contract.

                DESCRIPTION/SPECIFICATIONS/STATEMENT OF WORK



2.4.1.1        P25 Compliance Testing

The Contractor shall submit conventional APCO-25 digital standard (P25) equipment, including
test cables and mating connectors, for testing. The DOI Technical Service Center (TSC) will
provide pass/fail notice for subject equipment. After equipment is submitted for testing, a non-
compliance list identifying any equipment not meeting the TIA-102 standards or the
requirements of this BPA will be provided to the contractor and the Government will not place
any orders for the subject equipment until the contractor resubmits the equipment for testing and
the TSC determines the equipment is in compliance.

The TSC, located in Denver, Colorado, will test conventional P25 equipment to ensure
compliance with the TIA-102 standards, and to ensure that the equipment meets the requirements
of this BPA. The TSC will not test trunked and point-to-point microwave equipment for
compliance with TIA-102 standards, but will rely on the manufacturer’s certification that the
trunked and point-to-point microwave equipment meets the TIA-102 standards.

Non-compliant equipment discovered to not be operational in accordance to the P25 standards
once deployed to destination sites will be noted on the TSC non-compliance list. Ordering
Government agencies will not purchase any equipment on this BPA until the contractor
resubmits the equipment for testing and the TSC determines the equipment is in compliance.
  Specifically, once Contractors are notified of the non-compliant products by the TSC, the
Contractor shall resubmit the products for testing after it has made the necessary corrections to
the affected products. Testing of all products, new or resubmitted, shall occur in the order the
products are received. As a result, resubmitted products shall not receive preferential treatment
in the testing process. The resubmitted products shall not be available for ordering until the TSC
tests and approves the products.

When one Contractor’s equipment fails to operate with another Contractor’s equipment, the TSC
will endeavor to determine the cause of the interoperability issue. The standards of TIA-102 will
determine the non-compliant party or parties. Once the non-compliant party or parties is
identified, its product will not be available for purchase until corrections are made resulting in
compliance. When the DOI TSC determines the interoperability issue is outside TIA-102
standards, all parties (the DOI TSC and contractors) involved will work together to determine an
equitable solution, with the TSC making the final determination. Until an equitable solution is
reached, ordering Government agencies will not purchase any non-compliant equipment under
the BPA.

TIA-102 is an evolving standard. After the TIA publishes updates to the TIA-102 that affects the
―required‖ features of the equipment CLINs awarded under the BPA, as stated in the sections of
2.4 Equipment, contractors will be given six months (from the time of TIA-102 standard
publishing) to update their equipment to meet these new standards. Equipment previously
purchased under BPA delivery orders shall comply with the six-month requirement for update of
equipment described below based on the latest TIA-102 standards. Specifically, regarding the

the TSC will note the affected equipment on its non-compliance list. As a result, the
Government will not remove the affected equipment from the non-compliance list or order the
affected equipment under the BPA until corrections are made and approved by the TSC resulting
in compliance. For example, the minimum battery life for CLIN [0-4]001a VHF Tier 1 Portables
is currently 8 hours. If TIA-102 standards increase the minimum battery life to 10 hours on day
30 of the BPA, all affected Offerors will have until six months after the 30 day milestone of the
BPA to comply with the increased battery life requirement. Those BPA CLIN [0-4]001a
awardees that cannot comply by the required deadline will subsequently be unable to offer VHF
Tier 1 portables via the BPA until the requirement is met.

All contractors shall submit its BPA equipment to the TSC for testing. The TSC will first test
equipment under the BPA that it has not previously tested (e.g. previously tested meaning that
testing was accomplished via another contract or via business conducted with the TSC outside of
this BPA). All LMR equipment that has not been previously tested and approved by the TSC
must meet the specifications within the applicable equipment group in this BPA to receive a
―PASS‖ rating from the DOI TSC (prior to being made available for purchase).

Equipment that has been previously tested and approved by the TSC will receive a ―Provisional
PASS‖ rating based upon the contractor’s self-certification of P25 compliance and previous TSC
successful testing results. Participating agencies will have the ability to purchase equipment that
has received a ―Provisional PASS‖ rating before the completion of the testing for ―new‖
equipment. However, once the Government finishes testing of all ―new‖ BPA equipment – i.e.
equipment not available on the prior contracts– it will subsequently re-test all ―Provisional
PASS‖ equipment. After this testing, provisional equipment which does not receive a new
―PASS‖ rating will not be purchased via the BPA until all non-compliant issues are corrected
and they receive TSC approval.

LMR awardees will be required to provide DOI with LMR equipment for testing. If the
equipment receives a ―PASS‖ rating, then the equipment will be placed on the LMR approved
list, and be available for ordering. Sample equipment will be returned to the LMR Contractor
once testing is completed, unless other arrangements have been made between the TSC and the
Contractor.

The DOI TSC’s equipment testing will include, at a minimum, testing of the following features
(when applicable):

Definitions for testing requirements:
Required: A feature or specification that the Contractor shall provide at all times within an
equipment buy for the specified equipment group.

Desired: A feature or specification that the Government prefers that the Contractor offer, but
that it is not required to offer under the BPA.

2.4.1.2        Fire and Aviation Equipment Compliance Testing

In addition to the P25 equipment tested by the TSC for TIA-102 compliance, fire and aviation
equipment will be tested by the National Interagency Incident Communication Division (NIICD
) testing facility in Boise, ID. This testing shall ensure that specific fire (e.g. portable radios,
mobile radios) and aviation (e.g. aeronautical radios) requirements of this BPA are met. The
Government will not purchase equipment that does not pass the fire and aviation requirements of
the BPA until the contractor resubmits the equipment for testing and NIICD approval is granted
The batteries associated with fire equipment will be tested only by NIICD, as they do not have to
be P25 compliant.

2.4.1.3        Test Controls

Test controls or connections shall be provided for operation of the transmitter and receiver for
test purposes. Provision for test controls or connections shall not preclude or degrade operation
of the equipment by any primary controls otherwise provided.

   Required:
    A speaker, speaker volume control, primary power on/off switch, channel selection
      switch and microphone with PTT switch shall be provided.
    Audio output for local test shall not be less than 0.5 watt.
    Access to the receiver’s BER via the radio’s accessory connector shall be provided to
      measure receiver performance and to facilitate automated testing. The Contractor shall
      describe the format of this output, and it shall be available on all production radios.
    For performance testing, a method to unsquelch the receiver shall be provided.
    Each radio shall provide a means to generate standard transmitter patterns as defined in
      TIA-102.CAAA to perform the transmitter tests.

   Desired:
    It is desirable that the Contractor provide an output of the digital bit stream from the bit
      detector output for various performance tests.

Housing                                           Required:
                                                  Housing will be evaluated for ruggedness,
                                                  durability, and continued serviceability while
                                                  operating in field conditions.

2.4.5.1.4.1            AA Battery Compartment

An AA battery compartment (AA ―clamshell‖) shall be provided for ―Fire‖ Portable radios.

The clamshell shall be capable of powering the attached radio for a minimum of eight (8) hours
at the 10-10-80 duty cycle. The radio shall be set to the manufacturer’s full rated audio output
level in the receive mode and at 2.0 watts RF output power in the transmit mode. The test shall
be conducted using standard, non-rechargeable, commercially available alkaline AA batteries. It
is desired that the battery packs support the radio for a 12-hour operational period.

The clamshell shall be constructed in such a way that access to the inside of the battery
compartment can be easily accomplished to facilitate the replacement of the AA batteries. It is
desired that this be accomplished without the use of tools, coins, etc. The outside shell shall be
constructed in such a way that allows its removal under extreme field conditions, i.e. dust and
dirt, rain and/or fire retardant. It is desired that the clamshell be designed so that the batteries


GS-TFMG-BPA-09-0010                                                                     PAGE 2-26
Modification PA01
                 DESCRIPTION/SPECIFICATIONS/STATEMENT OF WORK


can be changed without having to remove the entire clamshell from the radio and while wearing
leather work gloves.

The electrical contacts that will mate with the AA batteries within the clamshell’s AA battery
holder shall be nickel plated at a minimum. Silver plating or gold plating is optional. The
contacts will be made of a material that will continue to provide a secure fit and electrical contact
even if the AA batteries were to be inserted backwards and then correctly inserted. The holder
and contacts shall be designed to prevent electrical contact with the battery if they are inserted
backwards. The battery compartment shall be designed to hold the proper number of AA
batteries required for the proper operation of the radio it is intended to support without the use of
additional jumpers (shorting strips) to fill unused and/or unnecessary battery slots.

The holder shall securely hold the AA batteries. The inside holder and outside shell shall be
made of a durable, non-conducting plastic that will provide electrical insulation. For ―Fire‖
radios, the outside battery shell shall be available in International Orange.

No electrical or mechanical degradation beyond superficial scratches and marks shall occur when
a clamshell is dropped from a height of 80 cm (31.49 inches) onto a smooth concrete surface.
The battery holder shall securely hold AA batteries in place during such a drop. Electrical
contact with AA batteries or between the clamshell and the radio shall not be lost during drop
tests.

The first drop test will consist of dropping the battery compartment - with the full compliment of
batteries installed - vertically by hand, onto a concrete floor once, on each of the compartment’s
six (6) faces. A second drop test will be performed with the radio attached to battery
compartment (also with a full compliment of batteries installed and the radio turned on) to test
for loss of electrical contact between the battery compartment and the radio.

The battery holder shall be clearly marked indicating the polarity and position of each battery
that is to be installed in the holder. The holder shall be constructed so that all AA batteries are
inserted in the same direction, i.e., no alternating of the positive (+) and negative (-) electrical
contacts.

2.4.5.1.4.2            Pick List Controls for Fire Portable Radios

Desired:
A sixteen (16) item (minimum) selection list (pick-list) should be available from the keypad
(without going into the preset channel program mode) for the selection of desired CTCSS,
CDCSS, and NAC on a channel-by-channel basis. Upon selection of an item, the name of that
item shall be displayed for a short period of time, before the display reverts to the normal
channel display.

In analog channel mode, the radio software shall have the ability to specify whether the CTCSS
tone/CDCSS code is to be applied to the receiver, the transmitter, or to both the receiver and the
transmitter. If a CTCSS tone or CDCSS code is not selected for a specific channel (receiver or
transmit or both), than the channel shall operate in ―carrier squelch‖ mode. Pick list tones/codes

GS-TFMG-BPA-09-0010                                                                     PAGE 2-27

                  DESCRIPTION/SPECIFICATIONS/STATEMENT OF WORK


shall be independent of pre-assigned tones/codes on a specific channel. Any standard CTCSS
tone, CDCSS code, or digital NAC shall be available for the pick list.

2.4.5.1.4.3             Cloning for Fire Portable Radios

―Complete‖ radio-to-radio and ―zone-to-zone‖ cloning capability is required and shall be
consistent throughout a radio's life cycle. Radio-to-radio and zone-to-zone cloning
ability/capability shall not be limited to a specific software revision or hardware version (e.g.,
software version or ROM and/or EEPROM revision) but shall extend to all radios of the same
type regardless of date of manufacture. An interface cable for radio-to-radio cloning is a
required option.

Zone-to-zone cloning is the ability to select a specific zone, or zones, to be transferred from the
source radio to a target radio. The ability to select which zone(s) to copy from and to write to in
the target radio shall also be available. It is acceptable to have a partition of zones set aside for
the purpose of zone-to-zone cloning.

The ability to ―lock‖ a zone shall be provided. Locking a target radio’s zone shall restrict the
user from overwriting the information already programmed into that zone.

―Complete radio cloning‖ shall consist of all user inputted information including all Zone and
Channel information. In a ―complete‖ radio-to-radio clone, the following items shall not be
cloned:

        1.    Electronic serial number
        2.    Unit Identifier (ID)
        3.    Encryption Keys
        4.    IP Address, if applicable
        5.    Passwords

It is desired to have portable-to-mobile radio cloning capability if a manufacturer produces both
a portable and a mobile radio.

                            be available at the radio’s audio output connector for control
                            of external devices.

                                    Programming
Guard Frequency             Required:
                            Guard frequency programming and edit functions shall be
                            disabled during normal programming operations to ensure that
                            the guard preset frequency assignment remains undisturbed
                            during main frequency programming operations. A means of
                            disabling operator guard programming shall be provided, thus
                            limiting guard programming functions to maintenance or
                            computer-to-radio capability.
Presets                     Required:
                            All operator programmable features shall be programmable in
                            flight utilizing front panel controls even if the operator is
                            wearing personal protective equipment (i.e. flight gloves).
                            The main and guard receivers shall not be disabled during
                            programming. Programming shall not require that the radio be
                            turned off to enable new operator-programmed settings. The
                            use of external devices (e.g. laptop, PDA, etc.) for radio
                            programming shall not be a requirement for programming
                            operations while in flight.

                            Required option:
                            While operator programmability is a requirement in many
                            applications (e.g. fire) it is not in others (e.g. trunking). Non-
                            operator programmable radios will be considered for specific
                            applications.

                            to a maintenance facility trained in the manufacturer’s
                            equipment. The intent of a programming customization
                            feature is to limit the number of programming steps, radio
                            features, and possible errant operator-induced errors/failures in
                            the radio to enhance flight safety. Flight safety is increased
                            through the creation of a radio configured to the operator’s
                            primary mission without the addition of unused features, thus
                            minimizing human errors.

Schedule contract, the GSA Schedule contract shall control.

C. Delivery Order Issuance: Ordering activities will give "appropriate BPA holder(s)" an
opportunity to submit a delivery order quote in response to the Government’s delivery order
RFQ. ―Appropriate BPA holder(s)" are defined as the BPA awardee(s) of the specific BPA
CLINs (as listed in 1.2 Services and Prices/Costs) the ordering activity has required for its
delivery order. For example, if an agency must place a delivery order for certain requirements
under CLIN 0001a VHF Tier 1 Portables, contractors who have been awarded a BPA for CLIN
0001a are "appropriate BPA holders" who shall be given an opportunity to be considered for an
award in excess of $3,000. The aforementioned language applies for all BPA delivery orders
unless one of the conditions below exists:

(1) An item is peculiar to one manufacturer (e.g., a particular brand name, product, or a feature
of a product, peculiar to one manufacturer). A brand name item, whether available on one or
more schedule contracts, is an item peculiar to one manufacturer. Ordering activities shall not
use brand name specifications unless the particular brand name, product, or feature is essential to
the Government’s requirements, and market research indicates other companies’ similar
products, or products lacking the particular feature, do not meet, or cannot be modified to meet,
the agency’s needs.

(2) Only one source is capable of responding due to the unique or specialized nature of the work;

(3) The new work is a logical follow-on to an original Federal Supply Schedule order provided
that the original order was placed in accordance with the applicable Federal Supply Schedule
ordering procedures. The original order must not have been previously issued under sole source
or limited source procedures;

(4) An urgent and compelling need exists, and following the ordering procedures would result in
unacceptable delays.

Ordering activities shall procure such requirements only if the need to do so is justified in writing
and approved by contracting officer for orders not exceeding $550,000 and by the ordering
activity’s competition advocate for orders exceeding $550,000.

When an order contains brand name specifications, the ordering activity shall post details of the
order to e-Buy (http://www.ebuy.gsa.gov).

When an above exception applies, the Ordering Activity will procure the requirement on a
limited sources basis and prepare a limited source justification in accordance with FAR 8.405-
6(g)(2) for the delivery order file.

D. Delivery Order Request for Quote (DORFQ): Each individual DORFQ shall be Firm Fixed
Price (FFP).

       (2) Quote Submission: The Delivery Order RFQ will indicate if the order is urgent or
       non-urgent. BPA contractors shall be capable of providing a quote within a 48 hour
       period for urgent requirements.
               (a) At a minimum the quote shall include:
                       (i) Price: The quote shall be a fixed price quote with sufficient
                       information to substantiate the price quoted. At a minimum, the total
                       price shall be comprised of the most current GSA Schedule prices
                       (inclusive of the GSA IFF), with the applicable minimum BPA volume
                       discount offered based upon the delivery order quote amount. The quote
                       may identify additionally proposed discounts in excess of the minimum
                       required discount. In addition, the quote shall identify – via a
                       separate CLIN - the amount of the administrative fee / surcharge
                       associated with the delivery order value.
                       (ii) Statement disclosing any known or expected conflicts of interest
                       pursuant to FAR 9.5.

       However, the DORFQ may also require the submission of the following information (the
       Government is not limited to the below list and may require other information)

               (b) Technical information e.g., description of proposed equipment specifications
               and their value to the Government.

               (c) Technical data, equipment software, and equipment software documentation,
               if applicable, as required in reference to meeting the needs of the statement of
               work in the DORFQ.

               (d) Corporate Experience, Past Performance, and/or BPA Delivery Order Past
Performance.

       (3) Evaluation: The Ordering Activity will evaluate responses against criteria contained
       in the proposed DORFQ. The Ordering Activity’s award decision will be based on the
       Offeror’s quote which provides the best value to the Government. Evaluation of past
       performance (if applicable) will be based on each BPA holder’s past performance
       providing supplies in relation to the scope of the DORFQ, as well as other information
       available to the Government. As more DOs are awarded under this BPA, it is probable
       that current past performance information on recent delivery orders awarded under this
       BPA will be more important in evaluation of future BPA DOs. The relative importance of
       the factors will be designated in each DORFQ.

       The Delivery Order CO will notify all BPA holders who submitted quotes to the DORFQ
       the results of the award, unless the order is placed on a sole source basis.
