The Navy received OTC Revitalization proposals from shortlisted master developers by the August 9th deadline and has started the evaluation process. The Step 2: Request for Proposals source selection evaluation process will identify the team whose proposal conforms to the solicitation, best meets NAVWAR’s mission requirements, and represents best value to the Government. The Navy plans to select one proposer by the end of calendar year 2023 to enter into a period of exclusive negotiations.

On April 10, 2023, the Navy shortlisted four potential master developers that advanced to Step 2: Request for Proposals based on submitted qualifications. The four shortlisted potential master developers had approximately four months to prepare their proposals to include technical and financial information to specify how they would achieve the Navy’s requirements. Proposals include details such as site and design drawings for the new government facilities; demonstration of the concept for private development; specifics on how they would finance the project; and a proposed schedule for achieving key milestones of the government facilities.

The Navy will work with the selected master developer on multiple options for the private development of OTC, while continuing to evaluate the feasibility of a NAVWAR-only development funded by traditional military construction methods.
