ICE released the much overdue solicitation for the next NWDC contract on 20 April (Hitler's Birthday).

The current contract expires on the 23rd so a modification and extension of the current contract are required for continued operation until this contract is let to the new operator.

The full solicitation can be found here:  http://tinyurl.com/dkgkvp

The Government will conduct a Pre-proposal Conference on April 29, 2009 at 9:00A.M., 24000 Avila Road, Room TBD, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677.

The Performance Work Statement  http://tinyurl.com/cs3bu9 is one of the most important parts of the contract and delinineates the
performance standards of the winning bidder.

The successful bidder takes this and turns it around for their contract bid to reflect their procedures.
ICE requires the bidder to collect activity on demonstrations and civil distrubances and maintain a private database and also directs them to report that information to ICE (from the PWS): "The Contractor shall share all intelligence information with the Government."

The Court Rooms will expand to five under the new contract.

The following have been required for the last five years but don't exist and local and State officials have disregarded and ignored citizens that have pointed this out on multiple occasions: "The Contractor shall have written agreements with appropriate state and local authorities that will allow the Contractor to make requests for assistance in the event of any emergency incident that would adversely affect the community."
