Inland (tender) Cutter RFI

USCGC Smilax (WLIC-315)

The Coast Guard has issued a Request for Information for a solution to our inland cutter needs. I have copied and pasted the brief description below.

Solicitation Number:
Notice Type:
Special Notice
Added: Feb 14, 2018 3:52 pm

The Coast Guard has a statutory mission to establish, maintain, and operate maritime aids to navigation to serve the needs of the armed forces and commerce of the United States. This Request for Information (RFI) is the first of several planned industry engagements aimed at developing the data the Coast Guard needs to make informed decisions about potential solutions to carry out this mission. The Coast Guard has historically accomplished this mission via a fleet of Coast Guard inland vessels. However, this RFI does not presume a specific solution and is not a statement by the Coast Guard that a final solution has already been identified; it is only one part of an overall effort to better understand the decision space.

Responses to this RFI shall be submitted to Jennifer Sokolower at
This special notice is for market research and planning purposes only. It does not constitute a solicitation and shall not be construed as a commitment by the Government to award a contract from responses to this announcement. Any information submitted by interested parties is strictly voluntary and no monetary compensation will be provided for response preparation.
