4. Brief description of supplies or services:
AEGIS Weapon System Production for AEGIS Cruisers CG's 54, 55, 56

5. Brief narrative explaining why the contracting officer determined the goals were sufficient:

of the total dollars planned to be subcontracted, RCA must subcontract to Raytheon the fire control portion of about $107 million. Of the remainder, a small business concern is sole source for certain power supplies, which totalled about $23 million. It is only over the remaining $48 million that RCA has control for the purpose of finding small disadvantaged business firms who are qualified. For fiscal year 1982, the Defense Logistics Agency found the contractor's program for finding such firms so aggressive that RCA received an award therefor. Given that RCA proposed to triple such awards in its 1983 contract (over actual dollars awarded in its 1982 contract), the goals were considered sufficient.

Construction of OHIO Class submarines: SSBN's 734, 735 and 736

5. Brief narrative explaining why the contracting officer determined the goals were sufficient:

The Contracting Officer considered the goals sufficient based on prior achievement of the contractor and the fact that the majority of the total anticipated subcontracted dollars are for items such as hull steel, missile tubes and major shipboard systems that are beyond the capacity/capability of small business. The cognizant Small Business Administration Procurement Center Representative recommended acceptance of the goal, as well.

Small Business and Small Disadvantaged Business Subcontracting Plan Goals

Contractor: McDonnell-Douglas Company

2. Contractor address (City, State): St. Louis, MO

а

Due to the complexity of the aircraft, substantial portion of the subcontract dollars are for highly sophisticated avionics whose production requires substantial investment. Few small business and small disadvantaged business firms have the resources for such an investment. This limits the work available for subcontracting to these firms, primarily in the categories of castings and forgings, raw materials, machined parts, and small dollar Contractor Furnished Equipment (CFE). The goals represent a significant portion of the amounts actually available and were accepted as sufficient on that basis.
