Secure Documents

As this requirement will be an unrestricted, competitive action, several of the solicitation documents will be posted as "secured" on the FBO website. In order to view those documents, Contractors will need to obtain special access. The process of obtaining access is somewhat lengthy, therefore all interested Contractors are encouraged to begin that process as soon as possible. Instructions for obtaining access are provided below.

Should any party have issues with obtaining access to FBO or the secure documents, they must notify the contracting office no later than December 15, 2019. Notifications to the contracting office of the inability to access secure documents after that suspense will not be a consideration in extensions to the Request for Proposal date. To ensure all parties are able to retrieve secure documents for this solicitation, a test document has been placed under secure package: SP0600-20-R-0800.

Please note that FBO has updated their security requirements, which requires that previously registered users must reactivate their account. See for more information.

No spaces or special characters are permitted. It allows access to related acquisition systems (i.e. SAM and PPIRS). It also serves as a validation to access sensitive but unclassified documents associated with a notice posted to FBO.

5. Following verification of the MPIN in FBO, contractors will submit a request for explicit access to the secure documents through the FBO system by clicking on the secure document line, then clicking the "Request Explicit Access" button. Once contractors request explicit access, the FBO system will send notification to the DLA Energy personnel assigned to the procurement, who will approve the request in the system. Contractors will receive an email once the access request has been approved by DLA Energy.

6. Once the MPIN has been verified in the FBO system, and explicit access has been granted, vendors will be able to enter the system and view the secure documents.
