  10. I feel confident I can get you a ringer for Farsi if they are still interested in Farsi (we need to find that out).
  11.  
  12. I don't know anything about Centra.  Thing is with these organizations they like who they know.  I never heard of Centra.  What type of linguists do they have?  Another tac might be to have a few stars on your side and don't claim a deep bench of linguists (most of which are probably DoD trained and not at all native).  You can ghost this talking about most linguists available are not native or digitally knowledgeable, but we have some stars and we are teaming with (someone like Gartner or Lincoln or Leoni) to bring some of the on the ground cultural relevance.  These linguists are not only going to be developing new content but also meeting with folks, so they have to have native or near native proficiency and have to have the cultural relevance as well.
  13.  
  14. If Centra has this then I say grab them, if its just to fit a qual I think we could tell a different story and ghost the approach most will take to check the box.  Gartner has an amazing presence overseas, they can help out with on the ground MOEs as well.  Lincoln and Leoni have been working in those regions for quite some time linguistically and culturally.

  119. Hi Al,
  120.  
  121. We are currently working on defining the positions for key folks we want
  122. on COIN.  We expect to get the reqs posted by end of the month.
  123.  
  124. By the way, Aaron and I thought it a good idea for you to visit the
  125. customer who has the COIN mission.  What are your availabilities for the
  126. next week or two?  Additionally, who else do you think should attend?
  127.  
  128. Since Aaron has communications with the customer, I defer to him to
  129. arrange the meeting.  He also wants to pre-brief you on some of the
  130. mission intricacies.
  131.  
  132. We spoke to Google and Apple last week.  They both agreed to be on our
  133. team!  I love this kind of innovation.
  134.  
  135. Our team consists of:
  136.  
  137.  - TASC (PMO, creative services)
  138.  - HB Gary (Strategy, planning, PMO)
  139.  - Akamai (infrastructure)
  140.  - Archimedes Global (Specialized linguistics, strategy, planning)
  141.  - Acclaim Technical Services (specialized linguistics)
  142.  - Mission Essential Personnel (linguistic services)
  143.  - Cipher (strategy, planning operations)
  144.  - PointAbout (rapid mobile application development, list of strategic
  145. partners)
  146.  - Google (strategy, mobile application and platform development - long
  147. list of strategic partners)
  148.  - Apple (mobile and desktop platform, application assistance -long list
  149. of strategic partners)
  150.  
  151. We are trying to schedule an interview with ATT plus some other small
  152. app developers.
  153.  
  154.  
  155. We, truly have the team to beat on this!
  156.  
  157. Let me know if you need more info.
  158.

  160.

  171. Chris,
  172.  
  173. Probably a good time to talk about what role I would like to play once we win.  I know it is impossible until we really see the RFP to determine any concise workshare but probably a good idea for you and I to have a high level discussion on the topic so we aren't surprising each other with a perspective that doesn't match.  I definitely want to use this contract to rebuild an IO development capability as well as provide some of the strategy, planning and security services.  Again we don't know size of contract yet but on the low side I would like 5 FTEs and on the high side I would like 10 FTEs (depending on size of contract) mostly doing mobile and social media development.  Overall I would like 25% of the overall contract value.  So lets set up a time to talk I would like to hear your thoughts.
  174.  
  175. Aaron

  218. Chris,
  219.  
  220.  
  221.  
  222. I just spoke to the group chief on the contracts side (Doug K).  COIN has been replaced by a procurement called Odyssey.  He says that it is in the formative stages and that something should be released this year.  The contracting officer is Kim R.  He believes that Jason is the COTR.
  223.  
  224.  
  225.  
  226. Kim will be getting in touch with me to bring me up to speed, I will also give her your name as a POC.
  227.  
  228.  
  229.  
  230. We should talk to Aaron and see how this tracks with his information.

  239. spoke to the CO for COIN yesterday.  The current procurement approach is cancelled, she cited changed requirements.  They will be coming out with some documents in a month or two, most likely an updated RFI.   There will be a procurement following soon after.  We are on the list to receive all information.
  240.  
  241.  
  242.  
  243. My speculation is that the four separate contracts approach was justifiably shot down and they are re-grouping.

  298. All,
  299.  
  300. From what we heard the split is a negotiation between the COTR and the OPS officer.  Seems that the incumbent team proposed a sole source contract.  The incoming COTR approved it.  The OPS boss (John) and his boss (Marybeth) disputed the decision and opted out.  The negotiation was to split up the RFP into 4 parts and bid them separately to keep the customer team together.  We did not get any information beyond that but it was disputed later in the week.  I hope the RFI means they are serious this time.  
  301.  
  302. If you need more info, we can talk Monday.  Let me know if you want me to set it up.
  303.
