The FEDSIM organization within the Assisted Acquisition Service Organization of GSA's Federal Acquisition Service has been commissioned by client organizations to establish a multiple award IDIQ contract program to support existing and future requirements. The program is code-named ASTRO.

Here is a link to the latest ASTRO RFI (#2).  Type in Keyword/Solicitation "ASTRO" https://www.fbo.gov/index?s=opportunity&mode=list&tab=list


On April 26, 2019, the ASTRO program released an initial RFI that served to help identify what Industry Partners exist within the impacted Industrial Base and determine what those Industry Partners actually do. Questions and answers resulting from that RFI can be found on the ASTRO Interact site here:


All interested parties are encouraged to join the ASTRO Interact Community.
This current RFI serves several purposes. First, the ASTRO program wanted to share a draft version of Section C (Scope) for Industry to comment on, provide feedback on, and suggest edits/additions/subtractions. Second, the ASTRO program is trying to determine the full significance of the affected marketplace, so we are asking for summary information regarding projects you currently perform or have recently completed within the stated scope of ASTRO. Finally, we are trying to ascertain how these types of projects are being coded with regards to NAICS and PSC.
This market research is an attempt to learn more about this robust and diverse market place. Your help in this matter is greatly appreciated.
It is NOT necessary for your company to have responded to the first RFI in order to respond to this RFI. However, we do encourage you to fill in the survey associated with the initial RFI.
Interested parties are encouraged to fill out the survey associated with this RFI at:


We will continuously post updates here at FBO. While we would like to see submissions provided by midnight of August 2, 2019, submissions may be provided anytime until when/if a pre-solicitation notice is issued for ASTRO.
The ASTRO Team currently consists of the following individuals:
Todd Richards - ASTRO Program Manager
Valerie Bindel - ASTRO Contracting Officer
Tommy Thomas - ASTRO Contracting Officer
Catherine Renfro - ASTRO Contract Specialist

Thank you for your participation in this exciting endeavor. We very much look forward to hearing from you.

At this time no ceiling value has been determined for ASTRO.
Hello. Is the Draft Solicitation still anticipated to be released in Q4FY2019 or is a Q1FY2020 release time frame more likely.
Will Fortier
Thanks for the question. The government still plans on conducting a few more RFI's to get industry feedback. A draft solicitation is targeted towards the later part of Q1 FY2020 after market research has been analyzed.
