A determination by the Government not to compete this action based upon responses received is solely within the discretion of the Government.
Mrs. Jill Willingham-Allen, ASC/AQP, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH 45433, has been appointed as Ombudsman to hear concerns from offerors, or potential offerors, during the proposal development. The purpose of the Ombudsman is to communicate contractor concerns, issues, disagreements, and recommendations to the appropriate Government personnel. Existence of the Ombudsman does not diminish the authority of the program director or the contracting officer. Accordingly, the Ombudsman does not participate in the preparation of solicitations, the evaluation of proposals or the source selection process and, therefore, for routine matters on individual solicitations, please contact the buyer at the telephone number listed herein. When requested, the Ombudsman, Mrs. Willingham-Allen, can be reached at (937) 255-5472, email: email@example.com.
