Seems that I've gotten into a pissing match with a poster that likes to sporadically visit threads and throw hints and seeds of doubt into them.

That's awesome...it keeps thread-authors on their toes...

As I posted...if you're not attuned to the language and coding....then it's just going to look like mundane nuts and bolts. (PS...it's the nuts and bolts that add up to something here)

I'm not going to justify my thread to you...

It is what it is.

I have researched a few of your last posts on various threads...
I do see a pattern here...
just sayin...

meh...

This one pisses me off.

Right-Hand Drive Passenger Mini-Buses and Vans for the Police in Pakistan
Solicitation Number:
Agency: Department of State
Office: Office of Acquisitions
Location: Regional Procurement Support Office Frankfurt, Germany

Contract Award Dollar Amount: $297,406.50

Why are we buying them vehicles?

During one of my tours in Iraq we procured 40-50 Jeep Libertys for the Iraqi police. Within six months not one could be found. We were told they were all blown up by IED's. Yea...right.

Thanks for checking out the thread...then checking out FEDBIZOPPS...

Keep the banter going and the thread on the top of the list under "recent" posts...this is the key to EVERYTHING.

Many threads with many questions can be answered.
I need eyes on this...I only have two of my own.

While I wasn't in logistics, as I rose through the ranks I found it to behoove me to find out what my support brothers and sisters did for a living. It was a great education. Never piss off the support folk, because they can make your life even more miserable than it already is. LOL

I'm thinking that the link to the website is probably scaring some off and others brains just shut off when they see all the numbers and NSN's.

They don't realize that it does connect with the here and now and probable future events. Investigative work is boring to them.

But there is one thing also. I was the Training NCO and then Unit Administrator of my unit for my last ten years. One thing I realized is that every Sept. we were told to go on a buying spree. And every Oct. we had to re-requisition the Sept. requisitions again. Could this be that possibly?

After all, we all know at some point, a CR will be passed and it's better to have your requisitions in before hand than after the fact.

Let me explain what about this req that puzzles me...this is just one of MANY...I looked at this for a total of 30 seconds...about 45 seconds ago>>>

Why would there be such an allocation of funds dedicated to just ONE area??????
I mean...they already have a fully functioning base there...why all this extra???
Why is the solicitation up for such a short period of time...base operation bids are up for MONTHS...year after year...
The "estimated" qty and "indefinite qty"...the military is pretty efficient and already knows what it needs to operate an already running base...
this leads me to assume that this isn't for upkeep of already existing posts...
this solicitation is to expand facilities...albeit, exponantially...quickly...


The use of the word REGION...not FAB or FOB...or Airbase, Hawaii...
Just Region...??????
So...there is no real designated "place of performance"...someone, somewhere just knows that we are going to need major military set-ups and camps IN PLACE and ready to operate around the Hawaii area...set ups that include Field Hospitals and Service Support (like food services, housing, utilities...all "in the field...tents, batteries...etc)

Hawaii is pretty big....

If the country is so hard up for money one would think we would stop giving it to other countries and spend it here. I can see how that would endanger the US ability to bribe other countries in order to keep the US in control of the world.

ABSOLUTLEY...you are right on the money...

They always did things like this at this time of year...

But they do it impractically...
They'll req non-specific...unnecassarily expensive items...just to run up the allocations to justify the next fiscal year's budgetary allowances...

I get that...
I figured that into my "concerns"

It's the specific...goal oriented items that serve a greater purpose that are disturbing me right now.
All the rad sensors...DLA is requesting them and not the department of energy...DLA is for GI inventory...non specific deployments...
Thing is...it's being deployed WITHIN CONUS....and hawaii and ALaska AND Peurto Rico...

whaaaaaa???

But hold on...after FUKU, I'm not gonna sweat the fact that Hawaii wants some rad detectors....no, it would make perfect, non-alarming sense after all...

Uh-oh...seems that a lot of 'regions' are requiring MANY rad detectors for GI inventory...
wait...make that EVERY region...
um...(shifts nervously in chair)

Is that...a mushroom cloud????

Phew...just a normal cloud.

Truer words were never spoken.
It's the only way in the world I could have Generals at my mercy...
...seriously...
I was kind of a big deal.
...scratch that...
still am.

Tee hee...reminds of a time I pulled a sweet deal on a trade with ordinance maintenance...we got some fun "stock items" from them all for the sweet price of One case of Glow Sticks...I didn't tell them that the case they recieved were infrared. THey didn't ask...
By "stock items", I mean things that we shouldn't play with...did I say Ordinance Maintenance??? I meant the Cute Puppy Upkeep and Rainbow Coloring Unit...whom I might add...were none too happy with colorless glow sticks when the time for Burning Man came around...

I suspect the Radiation sensors are for fukashima fallout. The mess is about to hit the beaches of the west soon enough, and in all likely hood there is going to be a catastrophic explosion in November/December from SFP #4. Not bombs, but something far worse.

Pretty amazing stuff on here. I think what got my attention the most was the biological network study....

Task 1 begins when contract is awarded and extends 1 year (12 months) from award date. Work is commensurate with continued funding of the 6.1 project, described above. ERDC researchers will contribute non-dimensionalized MATLAB-based mathematical models to contractors, composed of dynamical equations of the following type:




wherein is the transcriptional flux of RNA yield by the ith gene in response to regulation by potentially any other of the five elements composing both feed-forward loop motifs. The outgoing flux, , represents the degradation of RNAs through standard elimination-type pathways.

HUH?!?!?!

Just so everyone is aware, theses solicitations will take a good year to even begin to be filled. First the contract has to be awarded to one of the offerors, then the other offerors will protest (always happens), then the protests will be litigated, then, either the original awardee or a new awardee will be awarded the contract, the contract will be worked up, signed, and go into effect. A solid year long process most of the time.

You're right...for the most part...

Not on some of these though...
Some of these have deadlines...and precise dates, places and times...too soon to happen a year or so from now.

Looks like some of them are not fitting the "usual" provisions usually stated in contract bid submissions.

Some of them are SPECIAL NOTICE...UNUSUAL OR COMPELLING URGENCY...SENSITIVE MATERIALS...DISCLOSURE AGREEMENTS

Not run of the mill stuff...

I find This one quite interesting considering the location and what the intent is:


The intent of this project is perform seismic evaluation to buildings (particularly Building E, F of the VA Medical Center in Charleston, and Myrtle Beach CBOC building, utilities (AHU, sprinklers, piping, electrical, etc.) to identify deficiencies to being in a severe seismic zone and to repair the issues. Study shall be performed utilizing VA Seismic guidelines and other Industry guidelines as needed. Goal is to have the buildings make the VA Degenkolb listing. Specific written information on buildings will be required in the 10% submittal as this project will not be to replace buildings, but if needed, it must be noted what is required for buildings to meet the current Severe Seismic Requirements (either replacement, strengthened, or other manner).


C--REPAIR OF BLDGS./SEISMIC REPLACEMENT

I wonder why they'd be wanting to upgrade the seismic engineering on these particular buildings, considering it is not an area of known high seismicity?

 


Found another little tidbit:


The contractor shall provide the US Government, ... a process to facilitate the tender of bids to explore and exploit mineral wealth in Afghanistan by domestic and foreign investors.


And to help them out we've got plans to:


Review the current Afghanistan Mining code and regulations in consultation with the legal advisor and make suggestions for amendments to the Mining code and regulations helpful to the tender process, consistent with international best practices and specifically tailored to Afghanistan's unique resource needs, particularly from a technical perspective. Briefings and discussions on the same, as requested.


That way if they've any laws that are problematic, they can be dealt with before hand...

Mineral tender development and geological services including geological and technical support and legal support

Tie this to your rad sensor req:


Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), operated by the Lawrence Livermore National Security (LLNS), LLC under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), is offering the opportunity to partner with industry to frame the available technology as an opportunity to commercialize this approach to conducting training exercises for first responders using their actual radiation detection instruments.


TECHNOLOGY/BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY

Simulation of Radiation Detection to Support Training


and you get them wanting the detectors and the training for people to use them, which is a good thing but still a bit unsettling that they deem it necessary.

I've posted A LOT of "not-so-straightforward" req's.

I have also explained a lot of code already...

Take the time to actually enter more than 4 req's into the query...if you don't mind...before you try to de-rail the thread.

...it sure didn't take long for the "skeptic" to show up.

Psychology is fun...


Unable to explore the requisitions, but as an old veteran would be interested in some info.

Where is the food and water and mogas being staged.

Where are the private troops being deployed.

Where is the ammo going.

Where is largest movement in cs or tear gas and wire.

Pinpointing where it starts will be very helpful.

Thanks for your great work, logistics really do speak volumes.

It's amazing, really... the things you can find out...

You don't need documents summarizing Galactic level classified documents...
You don't need documentaries...
You don't need confessions from dying NASA astronauts...lol
Most of all...you don't need Infowars...

AJ's been scouring FEDBIZOPPS for years...where do you think he gets most of his over the top assumptions...

All you need is paperwork.
The road to hell is paved with paperwork...redundancy...bureaucracy...redudancy(lol)...
Someone has to manufacture the lasers for Dr. Evil's sharks...
Someone has to train his sharks...

Therefore...Dr. Evil's supply guy is going to call Acme Laser Co. and order lasers custom built and mounted on headsets that could only fit a shark.

Then, said supply guy will seek out a reputable business...or a "set/aside" for a small business that deals in the acrobatic training of great white sharks.

NOTE:
Sharks will be equipped with laser beams attached to the top of their heads...measures must be taken to ensure that they don't slice each other up. Therefore...research and development to reach this goal will not be funded by Dr. Evil...........
