Ms. Janet Miller has been appointed as Ombudsman to hear concerns from offerors, or potential offerors, during the proposal development. The purpose of the Ombudsman is to communicate contractor concerns, issues, disagreements, and recommendations to the appropriate government personnel.

Accordingly, the ombudsman does not participate in the preparation of solicitations, the evaluation of proposals or the source selection process and therefore, for routine matters on individual solicitations, please contact the POC listed for this solicitation. When requested, the ombudsman will maintain strict confidentiality as to the source of the concern. The Ombudsman, Ms. Evoniuk, may be contacted at (937) 255-5472 (Phone) or (937) 255-7916 (Fax).
