NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) plans to conduct an Industry Day overview of the JSC Administrative Support Services (JASS) II vision. The presentation for Industry Day will be held via WebEx/teleconference from 9:00 am to 10:00 am (CDT) on Tuesday, June 11, 2013. NASA/JSC is targeting 8(a) set-asides for the JASS II effort, but participation in the JASS II Industry Day is not limited to 8(a) companies.

The Government will also provide one-on-one communication opportunities which can be scheduled from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm (CDT) on Tuesday, June 11, 2013, and from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (CDT) on Wednesday, June 12, 2013. One-on-one meetings will not exceed 30 minutes in length and attendance is limited to three participants from each company. Scheduling of one-on-one appointment times will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please RSVP by June 6, 2013, by 12:00 noon (CDT). (Instructions are below.) Please specify face to face or teleconference with your RSVP.

The JASS contract provides full-time, part-time, and temporary administrative support to organizations in fulfilling JSC's mission and objectives. Major areas of the contract include branch/office and division-level throughout the Center, program/directorate-level support, flight crews (launch and landing activity support), center-level meeting support, special teams and short-term projects. The effort will include general office services, data management, time and labor collection, the coordination for property, moves, training, information services, special events and other miscellaneous activities.

The primary work areas for this contact are at the NASA JSC, Houston, Texas, Ellington Field (EF), Houston, Texas, Sonny Carter Training Facility (SCTF), Houston, Texas, and White Sands Test Facility (WSTF), Las Cruces, New Mexico.

The current version of the Statement of Work (SOW) for the JASS contract, NNJ09JA02B, is provided on the JASS II website at http://procurement.jsc.nasa.gov/jassII/ . An on-line technical library for the JASS II procurement is also available via the JASS II website. It is the potential offeror's responsibility to monitor the website for any future updates.

ONE-ON-ONE MEETINGS:

To facilitate interactive communications with industry, NASA personnel will also be available for private meetings in person or via teleconference with individual companies in conjunction with Industry Day.

The purpose of these meetings is to provide industry with the opportunity to better understand the existing requirements under the JASS and to allow industry an opportunity to provide input related to the JASS II procurement. The meetings are intended to be question and answer sessions in which neither side will be making a formal presentation.

Any company may request a one-on-one meeting. One-on-one meetings can be either in person or via teleconference. The meetings will not exceed 30 minutes in length and attendance is limited to three participants. Scheduling of appointment times will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
