Section 2 - Cost Sharing and In-Kind Contributions: This section shall include: (i) the sources of cash and amounts to be used for matching requirements; (ii) the specific in-kind contributions proposed, their value in monetary terms, and the methods by which their values were derived; and (iii) evidence of the existence of adequate cash or commitments to provide sufficient cash in the future. Affirmative, signed statements are required from outside sources of cash. Provide sufficient information regarding the sources of the offeror's cost share so that a determination may be made by the Government regarding the availability, timeliness, and control of these resources. For example: How will the funds and resources be applied to advance the progress of the proposed effort? What is the role of any proposed in-kind contribution? Section 3 - Cost to the Government: This section shall specify the total costs proposed to be borne by the Government and any technical or other assistance including equipment, facilities, and personnel of Federal laboratories, if any, required to support these activities. The cost to the Government should be that portion of the proposed effort, which is not covered, by the contractor's portion of the cost share. The costs incurred and work performed by any DoD or national laboratory "partnering" with the offeror under the proposal shall normally be considered costs of the Government and not costs of the offeror for purposes of the cost-sharing requirement. Present sufficient information regarding the resources to be provided by the Government so that an evaluation of their availability, timeliness, and control may be made. Section 4 - Off-Budget Supporting Resources: This section shall show cash or in-kind resources which will support the proposed activity but which are not intended to be included in the total project cost. Items in this category do not count as cost share or as Federal funds, which must be matched. Examples of items to place in this category include commitments of cash or in-kind resources from other Federal sources, such as national laboratories, and projections of fee-based income where there is substantial uncertainty about the level which will actually be collected and where the income is not needed to meet cost-share requirements. 5. EVALUATION CRITERIA The Government will evaluate proposals responsive to any or all of the areas of interest discussed herein. Proposals will not be evaluated against each other. 5.1 EVALUATION CRITERIA The primary evaluation criteria are: a) Scientific and technical merits of the proposed research to include, (1) the degree to which the proposed research and development objectives support the targeted technical topic and (2) validity of the technical basis for the approach offered.b) The offeror's capabilities, related experience, past performance on similar efforts, research investigators/personnel, facilities, location, techniques, or unique combination of these, which are integral factors for achieving the proposal objectives.c) The realism and reasonableness of cost, including proposed cost sharing.6. AWARDS NAWCAD intends to award Cooperative Agreements, however, NAWCAD will consider various types of acquisition vehicles including but not limited to traditional FAR/DFARS type contracts or other non-procurement agreements. NAWCAD is planning to make one or more awards within the overall objectives stated in this BAA. All awards will be based on the individual merit of the proposal. The Government reserves the right to select all, some, or none of the proposals received in response to this announcement. Any awards are subject to the availability of appropriations. There is no commitment by the Navy to be responsible for any monies expended by the offeror before award of a contract/agreement. For awards made as contracts, the socio-economic merits of each proposal will be evaluated based on the commitment to provide meaningful subcontracting opportunities with small business programs. These efforts shall be conducted primarily at the agreement holder's site but NAWCAD facilities may also be available and/or used depending on project needs. Access and use of NAWCAD facilities will require security clearances and US citizenship. NOTE: Typically, research findings result in the need for additional services/supplies, which are not possible to anticipate or project. Modifications to the agreement may be executed to satisfy these requirements; thereby providing for flexibility in technology assessment (with technology transition the ultimate goal). In the event that this is required, it shall be considered to be within the scope of this BAA and the resulting agreement, and therefore will have met the requirements of the Department of Defense Grant and Agreement Regulations (DODGARS).

(2) VOLUME II - COST/FUNDING PROPOSAL. Cost/funding proposals are not restricted in length and have no specific page layout requirements, but should address funding by periods of performance. Formal work breakdown structures (WBS) and certified cost or pricing data are neither required nor desired. However, NAVAIR reserves the right to request this information. Organize the Cost/Funding proposals to include four (4) sections in the following order: Section 1 - Total Project Cost: Provide a summary spreadsheet outlining the total cost by project, including labor, material, and travel for each project proposed and a total cost for the entire proposal. In addition, provide a detailed breakdown of costs of the project. Costs shall be broken down for each task appearing in the Statement of Work (SOW) and shall include all of the proposed costs to the Government and cost shared by the offeror. Present the following information for each phase of the effort: • Total cost of the particular project phase; • Total offeror cost share; • Funding requested from the Government; and • Elements of cost (labor, direct materials, travel, other direct costs, equipment, software, patents, royalties, indirect costs, escalation, and cost of money). Sufficient information shall be provided in supporting documents to allow the Government to evaluate the reasonableness of these proposed costs, including salaries, overhead, equipment purchases, fair market rental value of leased items, and the method used for making such valuations. Documents shall include the most recent ONR Rate Negotiation Agreement and/or DCAA Forward Pricing Rate Agreements, payroll verification, three years of historical actual indirect rates, and invoices or quotes for material purchases. Profit shall not be proposed in accordance with DODGARS 34.18 "Fee and Profit". Section 2 - Cost Sharing and In-Kind Contributions: This section shall include: (i) the sources of cash and amounts to be used for matching requirements; (ii) the specific in-kind contributions proposed, their value in monetary terms, and the methods by which their values were derived; and (iii) evidence of the existence of adequate cash or commitments to provide sufficient cash in the future. Affirmative, signed statements are required from outside sources of cash. Provide sufficient information regarding the sources of the offeror's cost share so that a determination may be made by the Government regarding the availability, timeliness, and control of these resources. For example: How will the funds and resources be applied to advance the progress of the proposed effort? What is the role of any proposed in-kind contribution? Section 3 - Cost to the Government: This section shall specify the total costs proposed to be borne by the Government and any technical or other assistance including equipment, facilities, and personnel of Federal laboratories, if any, required to support these activities. The cost to the Government should be that portion of the proposed effort, which is not covered, by the contractor's portion of the cost share. The costs incurred and work performed by any DoD or national laboratory "partnering" with the offeror under the proposal shall normally be considered costs of the Government and not costs of the offeror for purposes of the cost-sharing requirement. Present sufficient information regarding the resources to be provided by the Government so that an evaluation of their availability, timeliness, and control may be made. Section 4 - Off-Budget Supporting Resources: This section shall show cash or in-kind resources which will support the proposed activity but which are not intended to be included in the total project cost. Items in this category do not count as cost share or as Federal funds, which must be matched. Examples of items to place in this category include commitments of cash or in-kind resources from other Federal sources, such as national laboratories, and projections of fee-based income where there is substantial uncertainty about the level which will actually be collected and where the income is not needed to meet cost-share requirements. 5. EVALUATION CRITERIA The Government will evaluate proposals responsive to any or all of the areas of interest discussed herein. Proposals will not be evaluated against each other. 5.1 EVALUATION CRITERIA The primary evaluation criteria are: a) Scientific and technical merits of the proposed research to include, (1) the degree to which the proposed research and development objectives support the targeted technical topic and (2) validity of the technical basis for the approach offered. b) The offeror's capabilities, related experience, past performance on similar efforts, research investigators/personnel, facilities, techniques, or unique combination of these, which are integral factors for achieving the proposal objectives. c) The realism and reasonableness of cost, including proposed cost sharing. 6. AWARDS NAVAIR intends to award Cooperative Agreements, however, NAVAIR will consider various types of acquisition vehicles including but not limited to traditional FAR/DFARS type contracts or other non-procurement agreements. NAVAIR is planning to make one or more awards within the overall objectives stated in this BAA. All awards will be based on the individual merit of the proposal. The Government reserves the right to select all, some, or none of the proposals received in response to this announcement. Any awards are subject to the availability of appropriations. There is no commitment by the Navy to be responsible for any monies expended by the offeror before award of a contract/agreement. For awards made as contracts, the socio-economic merits of each proposal will be evaluated based on the commitment to provide meaningful subcontracting opportunities with small business programs. These efforts shall be conducted primarily at the agreement holder's site but NAVAIR facilities may also be available and/or used depending on project needs. Access and use of NAVAIR facilities will require security clearances and US citizenship. NOTE: Typically, research findings result in the need for additional services/supplies, which are not possible to anticipate or project. Modifications to the agreement may be executed to satisfy these requirements; thereby providing for flexibility in technology assessment (with technology transition the ultimate goal). In the event that this is required, it shall be considered to be within the scope of this BAA and the resulting agreement, and therefore will have met the requirements of the Department of Defense Grant and Agreement Regulations (DODGARS).

This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6 and supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; quotations are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. This synopsis is to notify contractors that the government intends to issue a Purchase Order on a brand name or equal basis in accordance with FAR Part 13 for the following, under simplified acquisition procedures. The Request for Quotation number is FDA-SOL-15-1151378. Provisions and clauses in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-83 are incorporated into this request. It is the contractor's responsibility to be familiar with the applicable clauses and provisions. The provisions and clauses may be accessed in full text at www.acquisition.gov/far. The NAICS code is 541511, Custom Computer Programming Services. All qualified business interests are encouraged to submit a quotation. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration requests quotation responses from qualified sources capable of providing the resources mentioned above (brand name or equal to product) within the time frame specified. Statement of Need: Background and Purpose: The Office of Regulatory Science of CFSAN requires data analysis software, Analytical Studio (brand name or equal to), for use in research, development and analysis related to CFSAN's food safety mission. The software will be used to initially process Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS) data files from the major manufacturers in an automated fashion. The software will search the data files for target contaminants and provide feedback of their presence. In addition, the software will also search for any other potential contaminant and provide a list of potential identities. This is important for allowing FDA scientists to process their analytical data more efficiently and quickly. Because LC/MS plays a major and vital role in the identification of chemical contaminants in foods and in the identification of compounds that can migrate into food from food packaging, automated data analysis strategies will allow for increased analytical throughput by reducing the burden of data processing. Since the inception of LC/MS, it has been a powerful analytical tool at CFSAN and FDA. The ever-increasing uses of the technique and the advances made have resulted in more instruments purchased to meet FDA's mission. With increasing imports and analytical demands on FDA scientists, software solutions to improve analyst efficiency are required. The solution is to use software to automatically process LC/MS data in order to allow scientists to focus on confirmation, thus reducing the time required to manually process a large number of samples. The current version of the software is capable of processing LC/MS data for a list of user-defined target compounds. The modified version of the software can be used to examine the data for chemicals that may exist outside of the target list and, given the proper instrumentation, assist in the identification of this contaminant in conjunction with both internal and external databases. This approach will be used whenever possible to support the identification of contaminants and to identify chemical constituents of complex mixtures, and it will play an important role in the identification of economic adulterants in the near future

The U.S. Department of Commerce, NOAA/OAR/ARL/ATDD, plans to solicit and negotiate on a sole source basis, in accordance with FAR 6.302-1, in support of the NOAA ARL Atmospheric Mercury Network (AMNet). ARL requests that the equipment described below be acquired using a noncompetitive procurement in support of OAR requirement for atmospheric chemical monitoring. ARL conducts short- and long-term research field intensives, as well as multi-year monitoring efforts to investigate source-receptor relationships in the atmosphere; characterize emission sources; study air-surface exchange processes responsible for pollutant removal; and document trends in atmospheric concentrations of important toxic pollutants. Under the 1990 Amendments to the Clean Air Act, Congress mandated NOAA and the EPA to monitor levels of mercury in the atmosphere. ARL's research and monitoring activities fulfill that mandate and support NOAA's Strategic Plan for Weather and Water research. Purchase of Tekran Model 2537X Continuous Mercury Vapor Analyzer (Quantity 1) TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: NOAA/ARL requires a device that meets the following requirements: 1. The analyzer shall be a compact, self-contained, rack mountable unit, complete with internal pump, user-serviceable pre-concentration gold traps, heaters, mass-flow meter & controllers, a cold vapor atomic fluorescence detector, and calibration source. It must be a portable unit that may be used indoors or in the field to monitor background vapor-phase mercury levels to a detection level in the *sub-ng/m3* regime at a cycle time of 5 minutes or less.2. The analyzer must be capable of operation without an external data-logger or computer, and should possess analog, digital and RS-232 outputs to allow it to be integrated with a serial data-logger, PC-based data system or any air quality telemetry system.3. The analyzer must be equipped with dual, gold-column amalgamation cartridges to collect mercury vapor, thus allowing for continuous sampling of an air stream, with no gaps in the data collected. While one cartridge is sampling ambient air the other is in the process of being analyzed.4. The mercury vapor collection cartridges should be made of pure gold, and should be able to withstand many thousands of sampling and desorption cycles without degradation in performance.5. The duty cycle must be sufficiently short as to allow for near-real-time data collection, with a minimum rate of not more than 2.5 minutes per cycle.6. The analyzer must be equipped with an internal mercury calibration source that allows the instrument to re-calibrate itself automatically; thus allowing unattended operation for extended periods of time.7. The analyzer must be equipped with a bypass valve that prevents contaminated air from coming in contact with the detector, thus making cleaning operations infrequent.8. The detector in the analyzer must have an inert gas purge feature to improve stability, thus necessitating only infrequent adjustments to the GAIN and SENSITIVITY controls.9. The analyzer must utilize an electronic mass-flow meter or controller to measure ambient air sample flow rate. If using a mass flow meter, the analyzer must utilize a microprocessor controlled feedback loop between the mass flow meter and pump to ensure accurate sample flow rates and sample volume measurements.10. The analyzer must use an electronic mass-flow controller to regulate carrier gas flow during analysis, and should automatically shut off gas flow in the event of a power failure. This allows optimal usage of the UHP Argon carrier gas.11. The analyzer must be compatible with Tekran® Corporation precollection units for gaseous oxidized mercury (GOM, collected with Tekran P/N 1130 Mercury Speciation Unit) and particulate-bound mercury (PBM, collected with Tekran P/N 1135 Particulate Mercury Unit), and must seamlessly interface with these devices in all aspects of sampling and analysis of collected GOM and PBM species.
