    There has been a veritable tornado of activity:   With ASTRO anticipated to be released somewhere around August 19th, many of our Industry Partners are wondering where the solicitation will be posted and what training events will take place.  Navigating this journey is as simple as following the yellow brick road!

    ASTRO Anticipates Leading The Charge For Unpriced Civilian IDIQS!   GREAT NEWS!  It has been a long time coming, but it should soon be here!!!  GSA’s Industry Partners and supporting associations have long sought the ability for IDIQ contracts to be awarded without consideration of price as an evaluation factor in favor of the common understanding that price will always be considered at the Task Order level.  Recent changes to law are now making that desire a possible reality!

    Todd & Team - this would be great. Would definitely help on the resource side of developing a bid response. Can you provide an update for Final RFP release?

    The Consultants May Be Misleading You!!! Predictions of minimum scores on ASTRO are FAKE NEWS!!! Hello ASTRO Community! Practically every day (and often multiple times per day), the ASTRO team hears something along the lines of “We heard that we need to score XXX number of points or we shouldn’t even bother proposing on ASTRO.”   Well folks, the ASTRO team is making this special announcement to all potential Offerors:

    Hello ASTRO Community! Thank you to those who are submitting projects like we requested.  We feel this has been very beneficial to Industry and Government alike.  We have noticed some things and fielded some questions around what needs to be submitted to validate scope and/or scoring elements, so we wanted to provide some guidance on the subject. Tip #1:

    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.
