USCG Release Draft RFP for Offshore Patrol Cutter Project

USCG Release Draft RFP for Offshore Patrol Cutter Project

The U.S. Coast Guard has released a draft RFP, containing new information for the shipbuilding industry, for the Offshore Patrol Cutter (OPC) project. The release of the OPC draft Request for Proposal (RFP) was announced on the Federal Business Opportunities website on June 15, 2012.

The Coast Guard invites U. S. shipyards to participate in one on one meetings (FAR 15.201(c)(4)). The Coast Guard is interested in meeting with U. S. shipyards that have the organic capability to construct a cutter of the OPC’s size and complexity. These meetings will be held in Washington DC and are planned for the week of 9 July. The Coast Guard is interested in hearing any final comments from industry regarding the various draft RFP documents that have been provided for industry review.

Also, for background purposes, the Coast Guard is making the OPC Concept of Operations (CONOPS) available on the website. CONOPS describes a proposed asset or system in terms of the user needs it will fulfill, its relationship to existing Coast Guard assets, systems or procedures, and the ways it will be used. The CONOPS is not a requirements document. Where the CONOPS conflicts with the OPC RFP, the requirements of the RFP supersede the CONOPS.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
