T&E (test and evaluation) of products and systems

The Professional Engineering Services Solicitation contains six Special Item Numbers (SINs), which are arranged to follow the specific developmental phases of any project. The six SINs are as follow:

SIN 871-1 STRATEGIC PLANNING FOR TECHNOLOGY PROGRAMS/ACTIVITIES

Services required under this SIN involve the definition and interpretation of high-level organizational engineering performance requirements such as projects, systems, missions, etc., and the objectives and approaches to their achievement. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited to an analysis of mission, program goals and objectives, requirements analysis, organizational performance assessment, special studies and analysis, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: The evaluation and preliminary definition of new and/or improved performance goals for navigation satellites – such as launch procedures and costs, multi-user capability, useful service life, accuracy and resistance to natural and man made electronic interference.

Architect-Engineering (A/E) Services as that term is defined in FAR 36.601-3 are excluded from the PES Schedule. If the agency’s statement of work, substantially or to a dominant extent, specifies performance or approval by a registered licensed architect or engineer for services related to real property, the Brooks Architect-Engineers Act applies and such services must be procured in accordance with FAR Part 36. Use of this schedule for Brooks Act architectural or engineering services is not authorized. Inappropriate use of this SIN is providing professional engineering services not specifically related to strategic planning for technology programs/activities and associated disciplines.

SIN 871-2 CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT AND REQUIREMENTS ANALYSIS

Services required under this SIN involve abstract or concept studies and analysis, requirements definition, preliminary planning, the evaluation of alternative technical approaches and associated costs for the development or enhancement of high level general performance specifications of a system, project, mission or activity. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited to requirements analysis, cost/cost-performance trade-off analysis, feasibility analysis, regulatory compliance support, technology conceptual designs, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: The development and analysis of the total mission profile and life cycle of the improved satellite including examination of performance and cost tradeoffs.

Architect-Engineering Services as that term is defined in FAR 36.601-3 are excluded from the PES Schedule. If the agency’s statement of work, substantially or to a dominant extent, specifies performance or approval by a registered of licensed architect or engineer for services related to real property, the Brooks Architect-Engineers Act applies and such services must be procured in accordance with FAR Part 36. Use of this schedule for Brooks Act architectural or engineering services is not authorized. Inappropriate use of this SIN is providing professional engineering services not specifically related to concept development and requirements analysis and associated disciplines.

SIN 871-3 SYSTEM DESIGN, ENGINEERING AND INTEGRATION

Services required under this SIN involve the translation of a system (or subsystem, program, project, activity) concept into a preliminary and detailed design (engineering plans and specifications), performing risk identification/analysis/mitigation, traceability, and then integrating the various components to produce a working prototype or model of the system. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited to computer-aided design, design studies and analysis, high level detailed specification preparation, configuration management and document control, fabrication, assembly and simulation, modeling, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: The navigation satellite concept produced in the preceding stage will be converted to a detailed engineering design package, performance will be computer simulated and a working model will be built for testing and design verification.

SIN 871-6 ACQUISITION AND LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT

Services required under this SIN involve all of the planning, budgetary, contract and systems/program management execution functions required to procure and/or produce, render operational and provide life cycle support (maintenance, repair, supplies, engineering specific logistics) to technology-based systems, activities, subsystems, projects, etc. Typical associated tasks include, but are not limited to operation and maintenance, program/project management (including, but not limited to, construction management) technology transfer/insertion, training, privatization and outsourcing.

Example: During this stage the actual manufacturing, launch, and performance monitoring of the navigation satellite will be assisted through project management, configuration management, reliability analysis, engineering retrofit improvements and similar functions.
