The Full Food Services pre-solicitation has a response date of January 19, 2015, for any vendors looking to respond. Every business interested in bidding on the Full Food Services contract must be properly registered in System for Award Management (SAM). As well as have the North American Industry Classification System codes 722310 - Food Service Contractors, and 722 - Food Services and Drinking Places filed in their SAM account/vendor profile.

Below is a copy of the Synopsis of the Full Food Services pre-solicitation as posted to FedBizOpps (FBO):
Food services are currently being provided in support of the 802d Force Support Squadron (FSS) through existing task order W9124J-09-D-0005-0012. The contract is set to expire 31 January 2015 and a follow on contract for these services is not in place at this time. Therefore, the 502d Contracting Squadron intends to award a sole source follow-on Firm-Fixed Price (FFP) 6-month bridge contract to the incumbent contractor, Department of Assistive & Rehabilitative Services (DARS), to provide continuity of services until the ongoing source selection is completed. Because of the nature of this requirement, the impracticality and substantial costs the Government would incur and not recover through competition, this bridge contract will be procured on a sole source basis. Under the proposed contract, 502 CONS/JBKBA will solicit and award a follow-on 6-month bridge contract using combined procedures contained within FAR Parts 12, Acquisition of Commercial Items, 15, Contract by Negotiation, and 37, Service Contracting.
This notice is neither a request for competitive proposals nor a solicitation of offers. A determination by the government to compete this requirement based on responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government.
