ASTRO Update

Hello ASTRO Community!

The ASTRO team would first like to thank all of those who have responded to our requests for information and have provided us feedback and ideas to consider!  The response has been robust and truly beneficial.  While this should not come as a shock to the people who know us from previous procurements, we are listening!  In fact, as a direct result of input and ideas received regarding evaluation criteria and scoring, we are making some fairly significant changes right now to Sections L and M that we are very excited about and feel strongly will lead to a better procurement outcome!  This influx of ideas has us busy writing and re-writing the draft solicitation document, so we wanted to take this opportunity to update everyone on our planned schedule of events:

Publish a full draft solicitation:  The Week of January 27, 2020

One on One Meetings (Due Diligence) with Industry:  February 18-20, 2020

The Due Diligence sessions will be held in the Washington DC area.  We will post instructions on how to sign up for the sessions in the near future.  Once we gather input from the Due Diligence sessions, we will make our final decisions and begin the process of internal review and vetting of all the associated procurement documents.  We anticipate releasing a formal solicitation sometime in the Spring of 2020.

The ASTRO team would like to remind everyone that we are open to receiving input and discussing ideas throughout this process up until the day that the formal solicitation is released.  We are based in Fort Worth, TX, so we understand if travel is an issue.  However, if you desire to meet with us in person or have a telecom with us, we are happy to try to accommodate those requests.  In other words, you don’t have to wait for the Due Diligence sessions to communicate with us… we are open and available to you throughout the process!

Thank you all again for the tremendous input of ideas and feedback and please keep up the great work!

Have a great ASTRO day!

I noticed that as well a few days ago. The ASTRO team has not made any changes to the posted beta.sam package since the draft package was posted.
Hello Will, I understand that the Draft Solicitation was anticipated to be released the week of January 27, 2020. Would you be able to provide a new time frame for when the Draft will be released?
Hello, Are there any updates to this timeline please?

Are there any updates regarding the Due Diligence Sessions scheduled for 18-20 Feb in DC? Thank you.
Hello ASTRO Team, It looks like the full draft solicitation is a few days late. When can we expect it's release? How is the industry one on one meetings planning sessions going? Will these dates hold and when can we register?
Any updates on the expected release of the full draft solicitation?
