On November 15, 2022, the Navy issued a Request for Qualifications/Proposals (RFQ/P) to begin a competitive solicitation process to identify a potential master developer for revitalization of NAVWAR’s facilities at Naval Base Point Loma (NBPL) Old Town Campus (OTC). The Navy will work with the potential 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.
Download the solicitation at SAM.gov. Notice ID N6247323RP00008.

The Navy will be holding a Pre-Proposal Conference for interested proposers on December 7, 2022. Additional information and how to register for the conference is provided below.
OTC serves as NAVWAR’s headquarters. NAVWAR’s mission is to identify, develop, deliver, and sustain information warfighting capabilities to enable Naval, Joint, and Coalition operations from seabed to space. The current OTC facilities are beyond their useful life and do not comply with current seismic design requirements, applicable anti-terrorism force protection standards, or provide sufficient controlled access and independent utility systems for secure spaces. Inadequate and obsolete facilities negatively affect NAVWAR’s cyber warfare mission, security, and workforce safety. The proposed revitalization of NAVWAR’s facilities on OTC would meet design standards for safety and security and would enable sustainment of NAVWAR’s national defense mission.
The purpose of selecting a potential master developer is to develop more site-specific details for revitalization of OTC before a final alternative is selected and analyzed using the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process. The competitive solicitation process for a potential master developer at this stage in the NEPA process is in response to public and agency comments received on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that requested additional details before a Navy decision is made and a Record of Decision is signed. Some members of the public and public agencies – such as the California Coastal Commission and the California State Historic Preservation Office – requested more specifics on how a commercial developer might design and develop the site under Alternatives 2 through 5 evaluated in the Draft EIS. The site-specific details will help inform the Navy’s required environmental analyses under statutes such as NEPA, the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), and the Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA).

In keeping with our commitment to the revitalization of OTC, the Navy will continue to update the public, stakeholders, and Federal and State regulatory agencies as this project progresses.
The Pre-Proposal Conference for interested proposers will provide an opportunity for representatives of the government and industry to meet for a presentation and self-guided site tour. The site tour will consist of several stops, allowing interested proposers to view and walk portions of the NBPL OTC parcels.
