will not be considered. While this process can be shorter in duration since it is only one step, time can be
lost though protests by contractors who were disqualified.
Consideration of proposals should include an evaluation of price as well as technical criteria. It is good
practice to require submittal of the price proposal separately from the technical proposal response, allowing
each to be evaluated by separate groups. This allows technical scoring to be performed without influence
of cost considerations. The airport can select the best proposal, then open the price proposal and proceed to
award if it is within budget, or a weighted scoring can be developed to define a best value proposition.
System Installation Phase
The developed and purchased subsystems and system components are developed and integrated by the
contractor in this phase into an ISSA. Integration with legacy systems, such as access control systems and
CCTV systems, is also performed.
Preliminary testing focusing on system and subsystem interfaces and performance requirements is
performed by the contractor during this phase. In particular, the interfaces with any external systems as
defined in the ICDs are tested to the extent possible.
The contractor should install all system hardware, software, firmware, interconnecting wiring and
communications interfaces necessary for the complete operation of the system. Major facility
improvements/ modifications necessary for ISSA equipment installation such as footings, trenching for
cable installation, pavement cutting and patching, construction of walls, installation of power and telephone
services, and other site construction/modifications and permitting may be the responsibility of the
contractor or procuring authority depending on the contract requirements.
Some minor levels of site preparation work by the contractor may be required. These requirements will be
determined during the site survey of the individual site.
The contractor should install all system components, including government or client-furnished equipment,
in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and applicable standards.
The contractor should furnish all necessary conduit, cable, connectors, terminators, interconnections,
services, and adjustments required for a complete and operable system.
Implementation Phasing Considerations
It may be necessary to phase implementation of the ISSA due to various reasons including budget
constraints, deployment at multiple sites, parallel deployments, interface capabilities, changes in
regulations, changes in security vulnerability decisions and others. In planning an ISSA, the option for
phased implementation should therefore be considered.
Phased implementation should be master planned to ensure a system that operates in the desired manner
both institutionally and technically and that all components are compatible and capable of communicating
with both legacy (existing) systems to remain and subsequent components to be brought on line later. The
system should be planned in a manner that brings components and subsystems on line in sections designed
to meet minimum-security needs, given funding constraints. Each subsequent implementation should show
a demonstrable improvement or meet a defined need. Planning should include flexibility where possible to
meet changing Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requirements as appropriate.
Implementation and phasing should be designed in a manner to prioritize needs based on available funding
while planning deployments in a manner that will not unreasonably increase costs and yet be able to address
