This procurement is a total small business set-aside. See Note 1. NAICS code is 54171, with a size standard of 1000 employees. NASA/KSC considers that there is an Organizational Conflict of Interest with current or potential Launch Service Providers and therefore intends to inserted a clause in the RFP excluding Launch Service Providers from participating in this solicitation. Offerors are advised that contract type and length of contract are still under review by the acquisition team. KSC is also considering a contract that contains a basic period of performance of five years, and two option periods, one 3 years in length the other 2 years.
