New $1.5 Billion Federal Delivery Contract to Encourage Cleaner Trucking GSA Responds to Clean Skies’ Proposals for Environmental and Alternative Fuel Benchmarks October 25, 2013
WASHINGTON – This month, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), the government’s purchasing arm, took new steps to implement the Obama Administration’s energy security and environmental goals by proposing that vendors competing for a $1.5 billion government-wide contract for package delivery services, beginning in 2014, be assessed on their ability to meet annual targets for fuel efficiency, greenhouse gas intensity and alternative fuel use as well as delivery prices. The American Clean Skies Foundation (ACSF), a Washington, D.C. nonprofit group, today commended GSA’s decision and noted that the five year contract should help to fulfill the Obama Administration’s commitments to reduce America's oil dependence and cut global warming pollution related to contract transportation services. “This new GSA contract could set an important new benchmark for government transport contracts, and GSA should be applauded for expressly recognizing that transport related pollution has quantifiable costs and negative impacts on federal agency operations,” said Gregory C. Staple, the Foundation’s CEO. “Hence, it makes sense for the government to compare the environmental performance of its current and potential business partners. Proposed contracts like this show the Administration is serious about achieving greater reductions in air emissions and oil use.” The proposed GSA solicitation is for express and ground shipping of an estimated 15 million to 35 million packages annually from federal agencies over a five-year period (2014-2018). FedEx won the first such Domestic Delivery Services contract, and UPS was awarded the current DDS2 contract in 2009, which expires in September 2014. FedEx and UPS have both begun to integrate alternative fuel vehicles in their fleets.
Teledyne Wins Landmark Single Source Contract from Boeing October 23, 2013
THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY) announced today that The Boeing Company has awarded Teledyne Controls a landmark contract to develop and supply the next generation of aircraft data acquisition systems for the Boeing NextGeneration 737 and 737 MAX and the new information management system for the 777, Next-Generation 737, 737 MAX and 747-8 production aircraft. As an integral part of the contract, the data acquisition and information management solution includes two newly-developed avionics units: the enhanced Digital Flight Data Acquisition Unit (eDFDAU) and the Network File Server 2 (NFS2), designed to further improve flight safety, efficiency and maintenance. “The trust and confidence that Boeing has shown in awarding Teledyne this contract confirms our position as the leading provider of aircraft data acquisition and information management systems,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. “We are proud to continue our commitment of delivering ‘intelligence in flight’ to the world’s major aircraft manufacturers and airlines.” The NFS2 and eDFDAU are the next evolution of avionic systems that Teledyne supplies to Boeing and airlines today. Teledyne’s current DFDAU is installed in over two thirds of all of the Next-Generation 737s manufactured today as Buyer Furnished Equipment (BFE), while the current generation NFS1 is standard equipment on the 747-8, an option on the 777, and targeted to be introduced as standard fit on the Next-Generation 737 in January 2014, and on the 777 soon thereafter. The new eDFDAU/NFS2 system will be offered as a single source Seller Furnished Equipment (SFE) option on the Next-Generation 737 in 2016, and be SFE standard equipment on the 737 MAX. The NFS2 is also expected to replace the NFS1 on the 777 once available.
Xerox Awarded U.S. Navy Office Equipment Deal; Outfits Ships with Systems, Support October 23, 2013
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Continuing a long-term relationship, the U.S. Navy has awarded Xerox (NYSE:XRX) a ten-year contract worth $94 million for the onboard document needs of its vessels worldwide.
The Navy will look to Xerox for the installation, training and supplies procurement of the multifunction printers(MFPs) and production devices across its fleet. Eighteen Xerox technicians will be deployed with the ships to provide onboard document management services and support. “Fulfilling the document management needs of the Navy is a responsibility we take very seriously and will do so with efficiency and responsiveness,” said Kevin Warren, president, U.S. Client Operations, Xerox. “The combination of Xerox’s technology, services and support lets organizations of all sizes simplify their printing needs, allowing them to focus on their core business objectives.” A major contributor to Xerox’s contract win is the advanced security provided by the company’s office devices. The MFPs are equipped with Xerox Secure Print, which requires a personal identification number for users to release documents. A front-panel PIN code authentication also protects access to the devices’ features. Onboard use of the MFPs will simplify work processes, such as scanned files being automatically shared via email or network folder, or saved directly to a USB for true portability. Nearly 16 million impressions are produced annually on these devices, ranging from technical training documents to photo books for families.

Fiscal 2014 Projects Largest Government Contracts Ever, Worth $160 Billion According to a new analysis by the Deltek report, the federal government is showing a 74% increase from the $92 billion spent in 2013 from the top 20 contracting opportunities. October 22, 2013
Orlando, FL – Even as the federal government dusts itself off from the recent shutdown federal agencies are already gearing up for one of the biggest contracting growths in over a decade. According to Federal Times on Oct. 21st, 2013, the federal government is showing a 74% increase from the $92 billion spent in 2013 from the top 20 contracting opportunities. Federal Times is estimating over $160 billion generated from just these 20 contracts that will begin rolling out this January. In fact, the DoD over the spending 73% of the projected $160 billion (roughly $118 billion) starting the beginning of the 2014 fiscal year on premiere GWAC contracts. GovernmentContractingTips.com has been assisting registered small business contractors with all of their questions regarding the available government contracts and GWAC programs. Before a business can start bidding on the available government contracts, they must be registered in System for Award Management (SAM). Most businesses find the SAM registration very difficult and tedious. It can take days or even weeks to fill out the registration if a business is not familiar with the registration process. That is why businesses all over the country have been hiring third party registration firms to conduct the SAM registration for their business. US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR) is the world’s largest third party registration firm that registers businesses in System for Award Management and prepares businesses for the qualifying process of the OASIS Program. USFCR’s staff of government contracting professionals will register a business in SAM, evaluate a business’s federal market, and connect that business to federal buyers across the nation. Their innovative marketing strategies have been proven to work by tens of thousands of contractors who use their service.

ARLINGTON, Va. – CACI International Inc announced that it has been awarded a $22 million prime contract by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to support engineering efforts to improve the DoD Mobile Electric Power (PM-MEP) generating sources.

This contract supports development and engineering efforts, including resources, to improve or modify the DoD standard family of PM-MEP generating sources and assist in developing more cost-effective MEP generating sources for future military needs. Energy sources have become increasingly important as the development of new warfighting equipment and technologies has greatly increased soldier power requirements. As a result, energy is expected to have a critical impact on costs, unit readiness, and mission success. CACI’s unmatched knowledge and unique insight into the PM-MEP mission, challenges, and future requirements make it an ideal candidate for this work and benefit the customer and soldiers in the battlefield. On this contract, CACI will continue providing subject matter expertise in support of the engineering, manufacturing, and production development decisions that drive DoD’s tactical electric power solutions on today’s battlefield. John Mengucci, CACI’s Chief Operating Officer and President of U.S. Operations, said, “This continuing work to support the DoD’s Mobile Electric Power efforts allows CACI the opportunity to modernize and innovate the DoD’s generator fleet. Our workforce possesses the tailored skills and experience necessary to successfully and cost-effectively accomplish this mission.”

CACI International Inc. CACI Overview CACI provides information solutions and services in support of national security missions and government transformation for Intelligence, Defense, and Federal Civilian clients.
Doing Business With CACI CACI is an information technology solutions provider. Small business subcontracting requirements principally arise under our U.S. government contracts for large scale software design and development, enterprise business process improvement, intelligent document management, information assurance, network management and logistics engineering services. CACI subcontracts are generally focused on delivery of a specific end product. They are not simply to provide personnel to supplement CACI's or its clients' staffs or to furnish equipment or software solely as a distributor or reseller. Many of our federal contracts require CACI to have identified our small business subcontracting partners and their roles in advance of the prime contract award. Accordingly, CACI rarely has a large volume of unfilled requirements for which we have not yet identified qualified small bu siness sources at competitive prices.
Subcontracting Guidelines ďƒ˜ CACI does not regularly procure or sell to others high volume, generic staff augmentation, leased personnel or contract programming services. When a particular skill set is required beyond existing CACI resources the responsible Program Managers in our operating groups identify and qualify subcontractor sources for limited term, specialized staff supplementation. Our acquisition personnel do not centrally manage these requirements - they are highly decentralized and project specific. ďƒ˜ Our contract operations do not require us to routinely purchase standard commodities in large quantities for resale or to regularly acquire, install or maintain ADP or telecommunications equipment of any brand name.

Contractors Get Relief with Construction Subcontractor Law On October 10, 2013, a U.S. Court of Appeals struck down the “stop notice” scheme in Mississippi, which spells relief for contractors with customers there and in other states — like California — that have a similar scheme. October 21, 2013
Stop payment notices, under the construction subcontractor laws in Mississippi, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Washington, allow subcontractors to force a customer to withhold monies that a prime contractor has earne d. According to court documents, a company called Noatex Corporation in Torrance, Calif. hired a subcontractor to install conveyor systems in Mississippi for a customer there. After the customer became dissatisfied with the subcontractor’s behavior on the job-site, and told Noatex that the subcontractor could no longer work there, the subcontractor issued a “stop notice” to the customer. The notice stopped the customer from paying Noatex. Noatex turned for help to an experienced attorney in Los Angeles, its long-time outside counsel, Robert E. Kohn of Kohn Law Group, Inc., and enlisted Wise Carter Child & Caraway, P.A. in Mississippi for local representation. The legal team concluded that the stop notice procedure was unconstitutional, and the federal courts agreed. The U.S. Court of Appeals explained, the subcontractor’s notice — which operated to stop Noatex from receiving payment from its own customer — “deprives the contractor of a significant property interest, the right to receive payment and to be free from any interference with that right.” That violated Due Process under the 14th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. As a result, the stop notice was vacated, and the judgment declares that the notice has no effect on the money that the customer had withheld from Noatex. A stop notice lasts indefinitely unless challenged in court or withdrawn voluntarily by the subcontractor, which means that going to court can be the only practical way for a prime contractor to get paid. The court rulings that invalidated the Mississippi law are now published.

Getting to D.C. via Airplane: Most people heading into D.C. to for business arrive at one of Washington's two major airports: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and Dulles International Airport. Located less than 5 miles south of The White Hou se, the DCA is only a short ride away from downtown D.C. The Dulles International Airport is located about a half hour from the city. further But if your business is taking you to the Dulles Corrider in Northern Virginia, flying into Dulles International Airport makes more sense. Ground Transpiration: From the Reagan airport into downtown Washington, taxi fares will run between $8 and $17 because it is so close to the city. If you're coming from Dulles airport to downtown DC will cost more than $50 plus tax, with lesser charges along the Northern Virginia route into the city. Renting a car is another available option at both Dulles and Reagan airports. Public Transportation: If you're heading into Downtown D.C. from the Washington Reagan airport, the Metro can get you the in about 15 minutes and will cost about $2 oneway, depending on your stop. Stations are located in terminals B and C. Weather: Although weather in D.C. is relatively mild compared to the rest of the nation, you should still be mindful of the season when packing your suitcase because the capital region has four distinct seasons. In the Fall, the foliage changes colors and the temperatures are cool, so take a medium or light jacket and long pants. Wintertime temperatures in Washington D.C. fluctuate above freezing, so bring your rain boots and umbrella â€” there will be lots of rain and the occasional snowstorm. In the Spring, temperatures begin to climb to a comfortable range in the mid 60s and 70s. During the Summer, the weather can get hot, humid, and uncomfortable. Temperature highs rise to the upper 80s, so bring along some shorts and light blouses.
Off the Clock: International Spy Museum: For the business traveler who's off the clock, there is a plethora of museums, art exhibits, and historic monuments to check out. For those who are intrigued by the secretive world of spies, head over to the International Spy Museum. There you can live out your espionage fantasy by enrolling in spy school to learn how to morph your identity, hone your intuition and observation skills, and take a pathology workshop. The museum invites visitors to explore a realistic forensics lab, create ID cards with fingerprinting, and try out a lie detector test. The International Spy Museum is also equipped with a simulated FBI shooting range and high-speed police chase simulators. McCormick & Schmick's at 16th and K: Once the clock hits 5, head over to McCormick & Schmick's on 16th and K Street to relax after a long business day. The McCormick franchise has locations all across the country, and is best known for serving great seafood. The K Street branch, however, is especially popular because it is frequented by lawyers, lobbyists, business types, and politicos who work in the surrounding metropolitan area. Its clientele makes it the perfect place to grab a drink after work and mingle. The Washingtonian Magazine named McCormick & Schmick's the â€œBest Happy Hourâ€? in town, with specials on draft beers, well spirits, wines, cocktails, and martinis. POV Roof Terrace and Lounge: For those itching for a lively night in town, head up to the Point of View Rooftop Lounge and Terrace. Located in the heart of Washington D.C., this popular hotspot is renowned for its magnificent views of the city's historic monuments. The modern terrace is decorated with striking decor to complement the skyline; it provides patrons with indoor and outdoor seating for breathtaking views during any season. This unique venue is a great place for after-work cocktails, intimate gatherings, and late-night bottle service.

Washington D.C. Recommendations for a Business Meeting
Dining in D.C.
Brasserie Beck: Established Spring 2007, Brasserie Beck is quickly gaining a reputation for serving quality Belgian cuisine all day from lunch to late night. Located at the heart of D.C.'s burgeoning McPherson square, the contemporary European style brasserie has become a popular place for Washingtonites to meet up both during and after business hours. The beautifully decorated dining room doesn't carry conversations across the room, so it's a great spot for business lunches and private meetings. Restaurant owner and critically acclaimed chef Robert Wiedmaier brings inspiration from his Belgian roots into his dishes. Guest favorites include the moules and frites with a trio of homemade dipping sauces, the Charcuterie Plate, the classic Belgian mainstay of Beef Carconnade, and the Crispy Skate Wing. Beck also features a raw oyster bar and a full-service bar that boasts the city's most comprehensive Belgian beer list outside Belgium with nine draught beers and over 100 offered by the bottle. Old Ebbitt Grill: Just steps away from The White House, Old Ebbitt Grill is a popular dining destination for suits to discuss business over traditional American food. Its Beaux-Arts facade and Victorian interior is reminiscent of Washington saloons at the turn of the century. The 1856 establishment was a favorite amongst U.S. presidents like Grant, Cleveland, Harding, and Theodore Roosevelt. Its mahogany and velvet booths provide the perfect privacy for political insiders, lawyers, business executives, journalists, and celebrities to meet up, negotiate deals, or swap stories. This historic eatery serves upscale American saloon food with an emphasis on fresh and seasonal ingredients. Their menu offers a wide variety of traditional cuisine, from pasta to steak to seafood. If you are a fan of oysters, be sure to stop by D.C.'s most famous Oyster Bar in the back of the room.
Quick Eats on a Budget Taylor Gourmet:If you're tight on time or money, head over to Taylor Gourmet for a delicious sandwich. Located less than a mile from the convention center, this deli shop has become a favorite amongst working Washingtonians and visiting tourists alike. Taylor Gourmet uses only the freshest and finest ingredients to create Philly-style hoagies stuffed with salamis, prociuttos, cheeses, breaded and fried cutlets, handmade meatballs, roasted turkey, beef and pork. They also offer several vegetarian sandwiches, as well as an array of salads, sides such as risotto balls and stuffed peppers, and even cannolis for dessert. Locals frequent this sandwich joint because of its excellent quality hoagies, great food prices, and reasonable portions. Taylor's is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., 7 days a week. 485 K St NW. Washington, DC 20001

Getting to Dallas via Airplane: Given that Dallas is a major point for most airlines, flying there is easy with two choices. Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) is the 4th busiest airport in the U.S. so flights are plentiful. 18 miles from Dallas and 24 miles from Forth Worth, it nicely splits the difference. Dallas Love Field (DAL) serves fewer airlines, but is also less crowded and is a mere 6 miles northwest of downtown. Ground Transportation: Taxi rates runs approximately $2.25 for the first mile, then about $1.80 for each additional mile, but know that with traffic, your time will be extended. There are flat rates to the central Dallas business district for $40, and the same to Forth Worth for $43, but let your driver know. There are also airport pick-up and drop-off fees of $4 on average to any taxi fare. At the airport you can find rental cars, shared rides, limos and busses and hotel courtesy vans, all depending in your needs. Getting around the City: With a population of 1.3 million, Dallas and Forth Worth are not difficult to navigate with a car, however signage in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area is limited and can make for frustrating driving conditions going from one city to the other. The downtown area is laid out on a grid and there are several loops around the city in ever increasing perimeters including Northwest Highway, Beltline Road, LBJ Freeway and President George Bush Tollway. Traffic jams are common especially during the commuter rush hours of 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to about 7 p.m. Also be aware that there are toll roads here. Of course it’s possible to navigate the Dallas/Ft. Worth downtown areas without a car. Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) offers bas, rail and trolley schedules and an all day bus pass is just $5. Assuming you don’t want the freedom of a car, and the hassle of parking, consider using DART as it’s a very comprehensive way to get around and runs easily between Dallas and Fort Worth. Weather: There’s a joke that Dallas has all four seasons: almost summer, summer, still summer, and Christmas break. Dallas has a humid, hot climate and is often prone to flash storms during the summer, which is why they receive about 37 inches of rain per year, bringing temperatures over 100 degrees on occasion. However the average temperatures throughout the year range from 57 for a low to 78 for a high. Winter daily temperatures run in the mid 50s. There is a slight chance of snow, but it melts quickly.
Off the Clock: Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Park: This nationally acclaimed 66-acre display garden features floral displays all year long. Nestled on the shores of White Rock Lake, the Dallas Arboretum was rated in 2013 as one of the Top Ten Botanical Gardens in the U.S. by The Travel Channel. This verdant respite means that you can explore hidden green gardens, water gardens or the fern forest, enjoy a formal tea, or simply get lost in the beauty of the gardens with mature trees and wide open spaces. There are live concerts and other special events. Admission is $15. Zero Gravity Thrill Amusement Park: For those who want something a little different, this amusement park will give you the space-like experience of being weightless. There are five different extreme thrill rides for the adrenalin junkie. These include the Bungee Jump – a seven story drop; the Nothin' But Net – a 16-story freefall onto a safety net; the Texas Blastoff where you’re launched straight up 150 ft., very, very quickly; the Skycoaster - where you’re strapped into a harness on your stomach and you start flying t hrough the air; and the Skyscraper – where you’re subjected to 4G force. Prices start at $35. Ride a Mechanical Bull: We're talking about the mechanical variety, not a real bull. This is one of those things you think you can do just about anywhere, or probably not do at all and still live a full and happy life. Not true. Of course you’ll look and feel silly, everyone does, and that’s the point. The youngest mechanical bull rider at Gilley’s was 15 months-old, and the oldest was 93 years-old. So if they can do it, so can you, and since you’re in Texas, this is the place to ride! Head to places like Gilley’s, or The Trophy Room. Average coast: $5
Dining in Dallas: Dee Lincoln’s Tasting Room & Bubble Lounge: The concept of this glitzy 4,000 square-foot spot focuses on wine, champagne, cocktails, and menus of food meant for sharing. There are semi-private cubbies for 10 guests each, a wine wall and an upscale vibe without being pretentions. There is also a cigar-friendly patio. Sushi, chicken pesto flatbread, and Scottish salmon are just a few items on the menu. Marquee Grill & Bar: This 7,000-square-foot restaurant boasts an open-air kitchen and an entry-level dining room, with its slim booths and light wood accents. Upstairs, three semi-private spaces are available for small groups. The sunroom and its adjacent balcony are other spots for a casual business meeting. Known for their butcher board, there’s also mascarpone grits, steaks and salads like the smoked beet salad Texas Spice captures the true flavor of Texas with an emphasis on local ingredients and southern style. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, this farmto-market concept incorporates fresh, local ingredients. Their breakfast and lunch buffets are very popular and a great value is a cornucopia of food. The chic/rustic interior designed with repurposed materials that include red brick walls, garage door style doors and wood details. Shrimp and grits, Chicken fried steak, or deviled eggs stuffed with Tabasco and pork belly are just some of what you’ll find. Lockhart Smokehouse: This casual spot builds on decades of tradition in the wrapped-in-butcherpaper-style BBQ meat game. Basic meats and sides are quick and easy as to-go items, or for a sit down in the cafeteria-ish interior. It’s not fancy, but it is flavorful and since this is Texas, it’s all about large portions of meat. Average cost: $15
Las Vegas, Nevada
Getting to Vegas: Many Las Vegas hotels are so close that delegates can walk to many destinations. When transportation is required, however, Las Vegas offers myriad options including bus, taxi, shuttles and monorail. Arriving at the Airport: The easiest route into Las Vegas is via air. Commercial and charter airlines arrive at McCarran International Airport, centrally located on the west side of town. The McCarran Executive Terminal and Henderson Executive Airport, a few minutes south in Henderson, serve corporate jet traffic. Ground transportation from the airport and around town consists of airport-based rental car agencies, hotel limousines, shuttles, taxis and the Las Vegas Monorail, which services McCarran. Visitors arriving by car travel Interstate 15 from California and Utah or Route 93 from Arizona. Rental Cars: Most of what happens in Las Vegas happens on the Strip or Downtown, and almost everything is a short cab, limo, tram or monorail-ride away. For business in neighboring areas, we recommend a rental car. Most national car rental chains such as Avis, Budget and Hertz can be found at the Las Vegas McCarran International Airport. Some have several locations at most of the major resorts on the Strip, such as Avis at Aria,Bellagio, The Palazzo and The Venetian, and several have lots on Fremont Street. Taxis and Shuttles: Taxis are metered and most will accept credit card payments. A ride from the airport to the top of the Strip will run you about $17, but expect to pay approximately $25 for a trip Downtown. For those willing to share an airport shuttle with up to 20 passengers, a ride to a destination on the Strip can cost less than $10. On a side note, when leaving the airport by taxi or shuttle, please insist that your driver avoid taking the 215 airport tunnel to get to the Strip (this longer route can add $10 to $15 to your fare). Monorail: â€“ The Las Vegas Monorail stops at the Las Vegas Convention Center and travels the entire length of the east side of the Strip from the Sahara Station (at Paradise Rd. and Sahara Ave., the site of the now-closed Sahara Hotel) to the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. It runs between 7 a.m. and 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. Friday through Sunday. A single ride costs $5, an all day pass costs $12 and passes for three days are available for $28. Be prepared to do some walking though, as all of the stations (save for one) are located a bit of a distance from most major resorts and hotels. Trams: Three free trams are located on the west side of the Strip, on the opposite side of the monorail's route. Trams connect Treasure Island to the Mirage Hotel, the Monte Carlo to the Las Vegas CityCenter and theBellagio, and the Excalibur to the Luxor and the Mandalay Bay.
