(C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection.

Intent to Award a Sole Source to Maiden Rock Communication for the development of a Solid State Amplifier System

Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service | Published September 30, 2015
cpvs

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), intends to issue a firm-fixed price, sole source purchase order to Maiden Rock for maintenance, repair and continued development of the Solid State Amplification systems used in the NRCS's meteorburst stations. The SNOTEL system is the largest meteor burst remote data collection system in the world, with approximately 670 stations operating throughout the western US. MCC produced the original meteor burst software and the hardware at the master stations and remote stations associated with the ability collect data. The software, which handles the communication between the remote stations and master stations, is proprietary in nature. The Meteorburst transmitters are the primary source for the transmitted SNOTEL and SCAN data which are used in essential engineering research and development projects with field applications throughout the USDA-NRCS. Manufacture and sales of the MCC520X and MRC 520s radio are being transferred from MCC to Maiden Rock. The meteorburst transmitters are the primary source for the transmitted SNOTEL and SCAN data which are used in essential engineering research and development projects with field applications throughout the USDA-NRCS including emergency operations that are mission critical and listed as part of national security. The data are collected at meteorburst remote stations located nationwide. These transmitters require specialized power amplification to operate them at peak performance. The amplifiers currently used a tthese stations are old and will need to be replaced. Currently there are no appropriate products available on market for the type of power amplifier that is need. Because of this need for a new amplifier NRCS would like to contract with Maiden Rock to develop a solid state amplifier that would work with the transmitter at our master stations. The SNOTEL Meteor Burst System, operating since 1976, has always used a tube RF Power Amplifier. Although this amplifier was designed to be capable of producing output power of up to 2,000 watts, it was seldom used for levels exceeding 1500 watts. In fact, SNOTEL is presently operating at a level of around 1000-1200 watts. This means that a 1000 watt solid state amplifier would work. In the early days tube amplifiers were the only way to produce these levels of RF power. In later years it was possible to design and build solid state amplifiers in the 500 to 1000 watt range, but the 1000 watt units were not rugged and reliability was a question. Since the introduction (in 2010) of very rugged highly reliable 50V LDMOS N channel enhancement mode Lateral RF Field Effect Transistors (FET) the 1000 watt solid state amplifier is practical. The amplifier will be designed around the LMOS 50 V power transistor. Several manufactures supply these devices capable of producing 1000 watts of RF power at efficiencies approaching 75%. Power gains of about 23 DB for this one device are typical. An input amplifier with power output of about 5 watts will be required to boost the RF input from the MRC 525 Communications Terminal from 1 milliwatt (0 DBM) to 5 watts. A copper heat spreader and a set of fans will be used to dissipate the heat generated by the amplifier. The design will be similar to that used in the MCC 528 Exciter. The controls from the MRC 525 will be used to key the amplifier on and off as well monitor the operation of the amplifier. A notch filter between the preamplifier and the final amplifier will be used to keep the RF noise density at the receive frequency (1 MHZ from the transmit frequency)about 130 DB below the full power output of the amplifier or -90 DBM/HZ. It may be possible to operate without the large notch filters used at the output of the tube amplifier in the SNOTEL Master Station. Maiden Rock is the sole manufacturer in the world of the meteor-burst equipment and has been awarded the NRCS contract for supplying the radios for meteorburst communications. Maiden Rock Communications LLC, is the only remaining company that is familiar with the meteorburst radio equipment and capable of providing the required support for modifications and upgrades. These radios are used in essential engineering research and development projects with field applications throughout the USDA-NRCS. These projects range from helping to monitor and predict the snowmelt runoff and required reservoir storage to crop water uses. Maiden Rock is the sole producer of meteor burst type communication equipment. The 565 radio is the standard radio for SNOTEL and SCAN data collection stations. N. other radio will work. Work needed: Now that the design of the power amplifier is complete the following needs to be completed to manufacture the product and to fully utilize the new capabilities of the power amplifier. 1 . Production drawings need to be drawn for manufacturing 2. Redesign and prototype for the remote control and monitor. (RCAM) 3. Redesign of coax relay. 4. Redesign of GUI software to monitor meteorburst master station performance. NRCS has invested millions of dollars to procure and maintain its own telemetry network that uses meteorburst technology to transmit data from remote location. The agency currently owns five master stations worth over 2 million dollars in equipment alone. Nearly 1200 remote data collection stations report vital climate data through this network. Up until 2011 NRCS relied upon Meteor Communication Corporation (MCC) as the sole provider for this type of equipment. In 2010 MCC discontinued manufacturing of this equipment. In June 2011 Maiden Rock Communications (MRC) was requested to design and build for testing three next generations meteor burst remote radios that will replace the existing MCC 545B equipment used in SNOTEL and SCAN networks. These replacement radios are required to operate within the current operations of the meteor burst communication architecture. This architecture is proprietary to MeteorComm Corporation, LLC (MCC) and licensed to Maiden Rock Communications (MRC). MRC is uniquely qualified to develop this amplifier at the lowest possible cost because its engineers have experience in developing low band (40-50 MHZ) RF power amplifiers (developed the MCC 528 300 watt Exciter and the MCC 516 500 watt power amplifier)and have been involved with the SNOTEL system since its inception in 1976. In addition they successfully developed the MRC 525 Meteor Burst Communications Terminal for NRCS in 2012. They are intimately familiar with the noise, operating conditions, and interface requirements of this amplifier and its use in the SNOTEL System. These radios are used in essential engineering research and development projects with field applications throughout the USDA-NRCS. These projects range from helping to monitor and predict the snowmelt runoff and required reservoir storage to crop water uses. USDA-NRCS has invested many hours refining the interfacing between the MCC545 and 565 radio and the CRlOOO data logger as well as the programming of the logger to accommodate the customized sensors. All remote stations operate against a proprietary operating system manufactured by Maiden Rock Communications, LLC. To compete this award would create substantial duplication of costs in which the Government is not expected to recover. This amplifier is unique and special in that it must interface with newly designed NRCS equipment and operate in NRCS Meteor Burst Master Station, all of which operate with licensed to Maiden Rock Communications (MRC) and not available for other vendors to access. • The amplifier must interface to and support all functions provide by NRCS's new MRC 525 Meteor Burst Communications Terminal. (Delivered this September) • It must also interface with the NRCS's Master Station Monitoring and Control System (MSMC). • It must operate in a full duplex or half duplex mode transmitting at 40.67 MHZ without degrading the performance of the MRC 525 receiving at 41.61 MHZ. MRC is uniquely qualified to develop this amplifier at the lowest possible cost because its engineers have: • Been involved with the SNOTEL system since its inception in 1976 and are intimately familiar with the noise, operating conditions, and interface requirements of this amplifier and its use in the SNOTEL System Meteor Burst System • Experience in developing low band (40-50 MHZ) RF power amplifiers (developed the MCC 528 300 watt Exciter and the MCC 516 500 watt power amplifier) • Successfully developed the MRC 525 Meteor Burst Communications Terminal for NRCS in 2012.

Length of serviceincludes the whole span of continuous service with the present contractor orsuccessor, wherever employed, and with the predecessor contractors in theperformance of similar work at the same Federal facility. (Reg. 29 CFR 4.173) HOLIDAYS: A minimum of ten paid holidays per year: New Year's Day, Martin LutherKing Jr.'s Birthday, Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Independence Day,Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans' Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. (Acontractor may substitute for any of the named holidays another day off with pay inaccordance with a plan communicated to the employees involved.) (See 29 CFR 4.174)   THE OCCUPATIONS WHICH HAVE NUMBERED FOOTNOTES IN PARENTHESES RECEIVE THE FOLLOWING: 1) COMPUTER EMPLOYEES: Under the SCA at section 8(b), this wage determination doesnot apply to any employee who individually qualifies as a bona fide executive,administrative, or professional employee as defined in 29 C.F.R. Part 541. Becausemost Computer System Analysts and Computer Programmers who are compensated at a ratenot less than $27.63 (or on a salary or fee basis at a rate not less than $455 perweek) an hour would likely qualify as exempt computer professionals, (29 C.F.R. 541.400) wage rates may not be listed on this wage determination for all occupationswithin those job families. In addition, because this wage determination may notlist a wage rate for some or all occupations within those job families if the surveydata indicates that the prevailing wage rate for the occupation equals or exceeds$27.63 per hour conformances may be necessary for certain nonexempt employees. Forexample, if an individual employee is nonexempt but nevertheless performs dutieswithin the scope of one of the Computer Systems Analyst or Computer Programmeroccupations for which this wage determination does not specify an SCA wage rate,then the wage rate for that employee must be conformed in accordance with theconformance procedures described in the conformance note included on this wagedetermination. Additionally, because job titles vary widely and change quickly in the computerindustry, job titles are not determinative of the application of the computerprofessional exemption. Therefore, the exemption applies only to computer employeeswho satisfy the compensation requirements and whose primary duty consists of:(1) The application of systems analysis techniques and procedures, includingconsulting with users, to determine hardware, software or system functionalspecifications;(2) The design, development, documentation, analysis, creation, testing ormodification of computer systems or programs, including prototypes, based on andrelated to user or system design specifications;(3) The design, documentation, testing, creation or modification of computerprograms related to machine operating systems; or(4) A combination of the aforementioned duties, the performance of whichrequires the same level of skills. (29 C.F.R. 541.400). 2) AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS AND WEATHER OBSERVERS - NIGHT PAY & SUNDAY PAY: If youwork at night as part of a regular tour of duty, you will earn a night differentialand receive an additional 10% of basic pay for any hours worked between 6pm and 6am.If you are a full-time employed (40 hours a week) and Sunday is part of yourregularly scheduled workweek, you are paid at your rate of basic pay plus a Sundaypremium of 25% of your basic rate for each hour of Sunday work which is not overtime(i.e. occasional work on Sunday outside the normal tour of duty is consideredovertime work). ** HAZARDOUS PAY DIFFERENTIAL ** An 8 percent differential is applicable to employees employed in a position thatrepresents a high degree of hazard when working with or in close proximity toordnance, explosives, and incendiary materials. This includes work such asscreening, blending, dying, mixing, and pressing of sensitive ordnance, explosives,and pyrotechnic compositions such as lead azide, black powder and photoflash powder.All dry-house activities involving propellants or explosives. Demilitarization,modification, renovation, demolition, and maintenance operations on sensitiveordnance, explosives and incendiary materials. All operations involving re-gradingand cleaning of artillery ranges. A 4 percent differential is applicable to employees employed in a position thatrepresents a low degree of hazard when working with, or in close proximity toordnance, (or employees possibly adjacent to) explosives and incendiary materialswhich involves potential injury such as laceration of hands, face, or arms of theemployee engaged in the operation, irritation of the skin, minor burns and the like;minimal damage to immediate or adjacent work area or equipment being used. Alloperations involving, unloading, storage, and hauling of ordnance, explosive, andincendiary ordnance material other than small arms ammunition. These differentialsare only applicable to work that has been specifically designated by the agency forordnance, explosives, and incendiary material differential pay. ** UNIFORM ALLOWANCE ** If employees are required to wear uniforms in the performance of this contract(either by the terms of the Government contract, by the employer, by the state orlocal law, etc.), the cost of furnishing such uniforms and maintaining (bylaundering or dry cleaning) such uniforms is an expense that may not be borne by anemployee where such cost reduces the hourly rate below that required by the wagedetermination. The Department of Labor will accept payment in accordance with thefollowing standards as compliance: The contractor or subcontractor is required to furnish all employees with anadequate number of uniforms without cost or to reimburse employees for the actualcost of the uniforms. In addition, where uniform cleaning and maintenance is madethe responsibility of the employee, all contractors and subcontractors subject tothis wage determination shall (in the absence of a bona fide collective bargainingagreement providing for a different amount, or the furnishing of contraryaffirmative proof as to the actual cost), reimburse all employees for such cleaningand maintenance at a rate of $3.35 per week (or $.67 cents per day). However, inthose instances where the uniforms furnished are made of "wash and wear"materials, may be routinely washed and dried with other personal garments, and donot require any special treatment such as dry cleaning, daily washing, or commerciallaundering in order to meet the cleanliness or appearance standards set by the termsof the Government contract, by the contractor, by law, or by the nature of the work,there is no requirement that employees be reimbursed for uniform maintenance costs. ** SERVICE CONTRACT ACT DIRECTORY OF OCCUPATIONS ** The duties of employees under job titles listed are those described in the"Service Contract Act Directory of Occupations", Fifth Edition (Revision 1),dated September 2015, unless otherwise indicated. REQUEST FOR AUTHORIZATION OF ADDITIONAL CLASSIFICATION AND WAGE RATEStandard Form 1444 (SF-1444) Conformance Process: The contracting officer shall require that any class of service employee which isnot listed herein and which is to be employed under the contract (i.e., the work tobe performed is not performed by any classification listed in the wagedetermination), be classified by the contractor so as to provide a reasonablerelationship (i.e., appropriate level of skill comparison) between such unlistedclassifications and the classifications listed in the wage determination. Suchconformed classes of employees shall be paid the monetary wages and furnished thefringe benefits as are determined (See 29 CFR 4.6(b)(2)(i)). Such conformingprocedures shall be initiated by the contractor prior to the performance of contractwork by such unlisted class(es) of employees (See 29 CFR 4.6(b)(2)(ii)). The Wageand Hour Division shall make a final determination of conformed classification, wagerate, and/or fringe benefits which shall be retroactive to the commencement date ofthe contract (See 29 CFR 4.6(b)(2)(iv)(C)(vi)). When multiple wage determinationsare included in a contract, a separate SF-1444 should be prepared for each wagedetermination to which a class(es) is to be conformed. The process for preparing a conformance request is as follows: 1) When preparing the bid, the contractor identifies the need for a conformedoccupation(s) and computes a proposed rate(s). 2) After contract award, the contractor prepares a written report listing in orderthe proposed classification title(s), a Federal grade equivalency (FGE) for eachproposed classification(s), job description(s), and rationale for proposed wagerate(s), including information regarding the agreement or disagreement of theauthorized representative of the employees involved, or where there is no authorizedrepresentative, the employees themselves. This report should be submitted to thecontracting officer no later than 30 days after such unlisted class(es) of employeesperforms any contract work. 3) The contracting officer reviews the proposed action and promptly submits a reportof the action, together with the agency's recommendations and pertinentinformation including the position of the contractor and the employees, to the Wageand Hour Division, U.S. Department of Labor, for review (See 29 CFR 4.6(b)(2)(ii)). 4) Within 30 days of receipt, the Wage and Hour Division approves, modifies, ordisapproves the action via transmittal to the agency contracting officer, ornotifies the contracting officer that additional time will be required to processthe request. 5) The contracting officer transmits the Wage and Hour decision to the contractor. 6) The contractor informs the affected employees. Information required by the Regulations must be submitted on SF-1444 or bond paper. When preparing a conformance request, the "Service Contract Act Directory ofOccupations" (the Directory) should be used to compare job definitions to ensurethat duties requested are not performed by a classification already listed in thewage determination. Remember, it is not the job title, but the required tasks thatdetermine whether a class is included in an established wage determination.Conformances may not be used to artificially split, combine, or subdivideclassifications listed in the wage determination.
