Notice of intent.  The Administrative Office in East Lansing, MI, for the Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture intends to issue an award to Aquatic Informatics, Vancouver, BC, Canada.  This is a sole source procurement under the authority of FAR 6.302-1, only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements. This is a requirement of the Soil Drainage Research Unit (SDRU), at Columbus, OH, for research software. THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS INCLUDE: Time-Series software that provides a unique set of features for collecting, managing, validating, correcting, analyzing and distributing environmental time-series data.  The software is a server-based application suite that runs with a number of relational database systems and can be connected to a number of data sources for computing derived data in real-time.  Features and specifications are as follows: Main Features •1)      The software shall be a Commercially Available Off-The‐Shelf (COTS) environmental data management solution. •2)      The software shall be based on a SQL or Oracle compatible database with reliable backup. •3)      The software shall have multi-user functionality, with password protected user accounts that control data access permissions. •4)      The software shall be designed around environmental data concepts, including time-series, field data and measurements, ratings, and real-time data derivation and statistical analysis. •5)      The software shall be able to manage data based on measurement location, geographic position, time zone, measurement parameter, data type, and engineering units. •6)      The software shall be based on web-friendly technologies for user interface display, data ingestion and data export. •7)      The software shall preserve all raw "as acquired" data. •8)      The software shall record all changes to data in a separate corrected data set as a lossless sequential list of transformations that are applied to the (unaltered) raw data in order to derive the modified/corrected result.  Any data corrections or transformations shall be capable of being undone by a user with appropriate permissions. Data Types •9)      The software shall support data that are time-stamped numerical values.  Some exceptions are textual data such as site descriptors, station descriptors, and comments regarding a data record. •10)  The software shall support a wide range of data types including: •                    i.            Water Quality Parameters •                  ii.            Hydrometric Parameters •a.      Rating Curves •b.      Shifts And Blending •                iii.            Meteorological Parameters •                 iv.            Soil Parameters •                   v.            Air Quality Parameters •                 vi.            Biological Parameters •               vii.            Station time series and field visit metadata •11)  The software shall implement different mathematical treatments for interpolating and aggregating continuous values, totals, mean (constant interval) values and discrete values.   •12)  The software shall support a mechanism to identify missing data (gap tolerance) and prevent interpolation or aggregation across such regions. •13)  The software shall support a wide range of data types including: •             viii.            Water Quality Parameters •                 ix.            Hydrometric Parameters •a.      Rating Curves •b.      Shifts And Blending •                   x.            Meteorological Parameters •                 xi.            Soil Parameters •               xii.            Air Quality Parameters •             xiii.            Biological Parameters •             xiv.            Station time series and field visit metadata •14)  The software shall implement different mathematical treatments for interpolating and aggregating continuous values, totals, mean (constant interval) values and discrete values. •15)  The software shall support a mechanism to identify missing data (gap tolerance) and prevent interpolation or aggregation across such regions. •16)  The software shall be able to associate ordinal quality (grade) values with data points (for example 10=good, 3=bad). •17)  The software shall be able to associate qualifiers with ranges of data values (e.g. "ice"). •18)  The software shall be able to track data sources for data (e.g. sensor or file name). Data Input •19)  The software shall be able to accept data from a variety of sources, both in paper and electronic format. •20)  The software shall support many different electronic formats including: •                    i.            Non-Proprietary Comma-Delimited Files or Spreadsheets •                  ii.            Measurement Files Generated by Various Field Instrumentation •                iii.            Local Databases (e.g., MS Access, Oracle) •                 iv.            SCADA Systems or Other Data Acquisition Systems •                   v.            Satellite Telemetry Systems •21)  The software shall be able to define and store file format descriptions and then re-use them for future imports. •22)  The software shall be able to accept electronic data from local and remote clients via network connection. •23)  The software shall be able to automatically ingest data via Application Programming Interface (API). •24)  The software shall be able to keep up with incoming data rates in excess of several thousand per second.  •25)  The software shall allow for the input of data with a digitizer (convert data from a paper chart format to an electronic tabular format). •26)  The software shall provide a manual data entry interface. •27)  The software shall be able to accept many different  forms of meta data including: •                    i.            Pictures •                  ii.            Videos •                iii.            Scanned Data Sheets •                 iv.            PDFs •                   v.            Excel Sheets •                 vi.            Word Documents •               vii.            Text Files Quality Assurance/Quality Control •28)  The software shall have built-in quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) tools in a graphical environment that allow users to identify errors and issues, log any edits so that they are reversible, and also provide a way to validate these data. •29)  The software shall allow for manual QA/QC of data, as well as open-ended data corrections that can be applied to new data that are appended to the system. •30)  The QA/QC editing tools shall include but are not limited to: •                    i.            Correcting Measurement Drift Over Time •                  ii.            Applying a Constant Numerical Shift (Offset) on a Portion of the Data •                iii.            Deleting Invalid Data •                 iv.            Filling Gaps (via Linear, Cubic Spline, or Polynomial Interpolations) •                   v.            Estimating Hydrograph Recession via Exponential Equations •                 vi.            Correcting for Clock Drift •               vii.            Identifying and Removing Data Spikes •             viii.            Identifying Invalid Rates of Change (Slope) •                 ix.            Copy and Pasting Data •                   x.            Freehand Data Correction •                 xi.            Applying Corrections for Fouling or Drift Where Different Adjustments are Made for Different Ranges of Value and Where These Adjustments Vary Over Time •31)  The QA/QC validation tools shall include but are not limited to: •                    i.            Detection of Exceedance of Accepted Thresholds •                  ii.            Monitoring of Rates of Change •                iii.            Way to Label Data as Reliable, Unreliable, or Anywhere In Between •                 iv.
