TITLE: Government’s Notice of extension of the TRICARE Quality Monitoring Contract (TQMC) performed by the Keystone Peer Review Organization, Inc. (KEPRO) for up to 12 months. The work includes a variety of tasks supporting the direct care and purchased care systems under the terms of the TRICARE Quality Monitoring Contract (TQMC).
INTRODUCTION: The Defense Health Agency (DHA), DHA Contracting Activity (DHACA), Managed Care Contracting Division (MC-CD), is issuing this sources sought notice pursuant to Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 206.302-1 and Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 6.302-1, Only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements. DHA intends to issue a sole-source bridge action to continue the provision of services provided under the existing TQMC contract, HT9402-16-D-0002, to Keystone Peer Review Organization, Inc. (KEPRO). This contract modification to extend performance is necessary to continue to meet mission critical requirements and to support the transition to a competitively awarded follow-on TQMC contract.
The base period of performance will be from March 01, 2023 – June 30, 2023, with two (2) 1-month Option Periods; July 01, 2023 – July 31, 2023, and August 01, 2023 – August 31, 2023. The total potential period of performance is March 01, 2023 – August 31, 2023. The extension is necessary to prevent a gap in support to critical DHA requirements after the end of the TQMC contract on February 28, 2023 until a competitive follow-on contract is awarded and the awardee completes transition-in. In June 2022, a Request for Quotations was posted and proposals were received.
