    Reminder; Q/As from ASTRO due diligence have posted.

    Will, Line 81 starts RFP anticipated for "late Fall/Early Summer." Is it meant to read late summer/early Fall or should we expect an RFP as early as June?
    Will Fortier
    Thanks for the note. At this point we're trying to hold our schedule, however we hope everyone understands under the current situation may result in changes to the schedule. As of now, we're hoping that we'll have something out in the mid-late 3rd...Read More

    Thanks Will, that info is helpful. Do you have an estimate for when we'll be able to access and familiarize ourselves with the Symphony portal?
    Will Fortier
    We don't have a date/timeframe yet for that. But you can assume you'll see that come out prior to any final solicitation being issued for action.

    FEDSIM’s inclusion of the Boot Strap Bonus for medium sized companies is a welcomed technique to increase competition for the 45 awards in each pool. Should this technique contribute to awards to a small number of medium sized companies (i.e.,...Read More

    Will, Deltek has posted these dates for ASTRO: Status Pre-RFP Solicitation Date 04/2020 (Deltek Estimate) Award Date 09/2020 (Deltek Estimate) Can you confirm that these dates are correct or can you provide more accurate dates?
    Will Fortier
    The current schedule is targeting a 3rd quarter solicitation release and 1st quarter FY21 award announcements.

    Will, will there be an official announcement on beta.sam about the new timeline you referenced? What's driving the change in dates?
    Will Fortier
    The team is still in the planning phase and finishing up market research. Dates are always in flux during this period in acquisitions. Stakeholders, policy, legal, staff limitations, emergencies, etc. are all examples of what will impact ASTRO timeline.Read More

    As expected, the slots for our ASTRO Industry Due Diligence sessions filled up quickly.  At this point, we have closed the registration page.  However, that does not necessarily mean that it is impossible to still schedule a meeting.  As we have stated before, the ASTRO team is open to meeting via telecom or in person anytime with any company prior to the release of the formal solicitation.

    Will, Is there an ETA or general time frame of when the RFP will come out or is it still TBD?
    Will Fortier
    It's appropriate to leave it as TBD for now. The team will need time to absorb due diligence feedback and work toward finalizing the solicitation.

    Will, is it to late to still respond to the RFI?

    Hello; if you have feedback please do provide it.

    Happy Friday Will, we are excited to see the draft solicitation. Posting here so I don't miss it. Also, do you know when Q&A from RFI #4 will be released?
    Will Fortier
    I don't have a target date for RFI 4 Q/As please stay tuned.

    How do I find the draft Section C and the ASTRO Pool Structure documents?
    Will Fortier
    If you click on the RFI #3 link you'll see links that contain the draft section C and pool structure files.
    David_Bishop
    Have you made any progress on the structure of the eventual proposal (Sec L) or the evaluation criteria (Sec M)? What will be most important, past performance or pricing?
    Will Fortier
    Hello David - That is precisely what RFI #4 is about (evaluation criteria). It is out now and due back later this month. You can find links to it on this forum.

    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.

    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.

    Has an anticipated ceiling value been determined for ASTRO?
    Will Fortier
    At this time no ceiling value has been determined for ASTRO.
