Synopsis: PRESOLICITATION NOTICE Geochemistry of Coso N39430-15-R-1726 The Navy intends to competitively solicit and award a Firm Fixed Price contract to a small business to provide a commercial item (services) as required by the Navy Geothermal Program Office (GPO). The solicitation, as planned, will be a 100 percent set-aside for small business. The NAICS code is 541690. The Product Service Code is B599. The required services are to be provided during a base year, starting the effective date of contract award, and additionally, during any and all option years as exercised by the Government. The exercise of an option requires a Determination by the Contracting Officer. Only the base year will be funded upon award of the contract. With options exercised (requiring funding to be added incrementally), the total term of the contract will not exceed 60 months. The Contracting Officer anticipates an award of a contract no later than February, 2016. The pre-award scheduled includes the posting of a Solicitation to the FedBizOpps website in late September or October, 2015. If a small business wants to indicate to the Navy, during the presolicitation phase, its specific capabilities for the required services, communication to the contact person identified for this Synopsis is encouraged. Such communication may include identification of any socio-economic certifications or other designations relevant to federal acquisition and inclusion of both the DUNS number and CAGE code for the business is encouraged. NOTE: the capture and ongoing use or targeting of the email address for the Navy contact person for future digital marketing and promotions is strongly discouraged. BACKGROUND The Navy Geothermal Program Office (GPO), NAVFAC EXWC code PW68, is the Department of Defense lead agency for geothermal exploration, development, and resource management. The Coso geothermal field is located at Naval Air Weapons Station (NAWS), China Lake, California. The GPO is co-located at China Lake. GPO is within the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC). The GPO is code PW68 within EXWC. The EXWC command is located at Port Hueneme, California, where the Acquisitions Department (ACQ) is located. The EXWC code for the Contracting Officer and Contract Specialist supporting the GPO acquisition requirements is ACQ71. A completed contract, N62473-13-M-4624, had a requirement similar to the one described in this Presolicitation (Synopsis). A gap of several months has occurred between the completion of N62473-13-M-4624 and the current pre-award effort by the Navy to ensure a new contract is awarded for the ongoing Geochemistry of Coso requirement. DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES REQUIRED The requirements described below shall build on and extend beyond the work previously accomplished under purchase order N62473-13-M-4624. The requirements will be presented as a Performance Work Statement in the Solicitation and the contract as awarded. Requirement 1: Update the fluid-geochemistry database The Contractor shall update the established GPO Coso geothermal field fluid-geochemistry database (MS Access-based) of all geochemical analyses from brine and gas samples collected in the field to date. The Contractor shall both compile and evaluate the quality of the new data using established Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/AC) protocols, or equivalent with prior Navy approval. The Contractor shall recommend and establish (with Government approval) additional QA/QC protocols for new analyses as they are added to the GPO Coso database. The geothermal database includes analytical results such as major constituents, minor and trace element constituents, gaseous species and isotopes, and standard chemical measurements such as Eh, pH, and TDS, and shall be obtained from the GPO. Since the vast majority of emergent geochemical data will come from the Coso geothermal development contractor (COC), under contract to the Navy, evaluation of the quality of these data will allow the Contractor to assess the COC sampling and analytical protocols and procedures. The Contractor shall recommend modifications to the geochemical monitoring program of the Coso geothermal contractor ( a party under contract with the Navy), as appropriate to ensure the program is maintained at or above geothermal industry standards for a geothermal resource of this type and magnitude (see Requirement 3, below). The Contractor shall perform field health and fluid augmentation monitoring and providing recommendations for geochemical sampling techniques and process at the Coso geothermal field. The Contractor shall gather and analyze extant and emergent geochemical and isotopic data to monitor the geochemistry of the Coso geothermal system. The purpose of this effort is to provide a geochemical expertise that the Navy does not possess internally, expertise that is a critical component of the GPO program that protects the Navy equity in the Coso geothermal resource. The Contractor shall continue the compilation and evaluation of all Coso geothermal system geochemical analyses from brine and gas samples, including a variety of gaseous species and isotopes. Based on evaluation of these data, the Contractor shall assess the operational sampling and analysis protocols and procedures currently in use at Coso. The Contractor shall recommend modifications to these protocols and procedures, as appropriate to ensure the program is maintained at or above geothermal industry standards. The Contractor shall provide findings and recommendations in a detailed report to the Government for the base year of the contract and also for each option year that is exercised. Requirement 2: Perform Geothermal field health and fluid augmentation monitoring The Contractor shall perform field health and fluid augmentation monitoring and providing recommendations for geochemical sampling techniques and process at the Coso geothermal field. The Contractor shall conduct enthalpy monitoring of the reservoir geochemistry with changes in fluid flow characteristics and wellhead and subsurface pressure/temperature data provided by the GPO and COC. Such monitoring shall be conducted on both a field-wide and individual well basis. The Contractor shall use geochemical data to examine and predict reservoir effects of various injection fluids, such as: cold water augmentation, hot production fluids, cool/cold production fluids, cool steam condensate, concentrated brine, brackish local groundwater, and low TDS groundwater. A significant component of Requirement 2 will be a focus on the chemical and isotopic characteristics of the Coso geothermal fluids through the utilization of a variety of noble gas and stable isotopes. Requirement 3: Provide Recommendations The Contractor shall investigate and recommend new techniques and processes, which will contribute to the understanding within the Navy regarding the geochemistry of the Coso geothermal system, particularly the relationship of reservoir injected fluids to host rock, source rock, heat source, reservoir conduits (plumbing), water augmentation, other physical parameters, and time. DELIVERABLES Reporting requirements will be provided in the Solicitation. The Navy will include a Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL) as an attachment to the Solicitation and the contract award, for the specification of due dates, subject matter, and other details as applicable for requisite reports. MEETINGS AT THE GPO, CHINA LAKE, CALIFORNIA The Solicitation will identify the plan for any meetings that the GPO intends to hold with the Contractor present. APPLICABLE DOCUMENTS 1.

Historically Black Colleges/Universities and Minority Institutions (HBCU/MI) will be recognized according to Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) Part 226.3. All responsible sources from academia and industry may submit proposals. No portion of this BAA will be set aside for HBCU/MI participation, due to the impracticality of reserving discrete or severable items of this research for exclusive competition among the entities. Non-DOD Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) including Department of Energy National Laboratories, are not eligible to receive awards under this BAA. However, teaming arrangements between FFRDCs and eligible principal bidders are allowed so long as they are permitted under the sponsoring agreement between the Government and the specific FFRDC. DFARS 235.017-1 allows DOD FFRDCs which function primarily as research laboratories to apply. Naval laboratories and warfare centers as well as other DOD and civilian agency laboratories are not eligible to receive awards under this BAA and should not directly submit an abstract response to this BAA. As with the FFRDCs, these organizations may team with other responsible sources from industry and academia that are submitting proposals under the BAA. University Affiliated Research Centers (UARC) are eligible to submit proposals under this BAA unless precluded from doing so by their DOD UARC contract or an organizational conflict of interest. 9. Do not call the Contracting Office for verification, as the abstract is not received or reviewed by the Contracting Office.

This announcement constitutes a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Naval Facilities Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (NEXWC) under FAR 6.102(d)(2) and 35.106. A formal Request for Proposals (RFP), other solicitation, or additional information regarding this announcement will not be issued. This announcement is open for one year from the date of publication. Proposals may be submitted at any time during this period. This announcement replaces N39430-14-R-1423. FAR Part 35 restricts the use of BAAs to the acquisition of basic and applied research, and that portion of advanced technology development not related to the development of a specific system or hardware procurement. Contracts made under BAAs are for scientific study and experimentation directed towards advancing the state of the art and increasing knowledge or understanding. This announcement is not for the acquisition of technical, engineering, or other types of support services. This announcement seeks out technologies and methodologies to reduce environmental impacts from current and past Navy operations, and applies to Navy installations worldwide. NAVFAC EXWC is interested in environmental technologies and methodologies that are either new, innovative, advance the state-of-the-art, or increase knowledge or understanding of a technology or methodology. The technology or methodology shall address one of the following topic areas. TOPIC NO. 1: ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT, RESTORATION AND CLEANUP. Services to assess and/or remediate existing pollution generated by military operations, including methodologies for evaluation of ecological risk, risk reduction, and/or establishing risk based cleanup goals. TOPIC NO. 2: CONSERVATION OF NATURAL RESOURCES. Practices that support habitat both on land and at sea for rare and endangered species, migratory birds or marine mammals and that comply with environmental legislation and ensure protection of sensitive resources while supporting the military operations. TOPIC NO 3: UNEXPLODED ORDNANCE (UXO). Services for explosive ordnance detection, location, de-energizing, disposal or remediation of UXO generated by military operations. TOPIC NO 4: POLLUTION PREVENTION. Process design changes, management practices or methodologies to minimize the amount of pollution generated during present or future operations and maintenance. TOPIC NO 5: ENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE. Process design changes or management practices that facilitate or enhance the Navy’s ability to comply with local, state, and federal environmental regulatory requirements. TOPIC NO 6: SUSTAINABILITY AND CLIMATE CHANGE. Facility systems, process changes, or management practices that allow the Navy to perform our mission while reducing our overall environmental and economic footprint (reduce land use, energy use, water use, chemical use, and waste generation) associated with facilities. Specific areas of interest include: water conservation, greenhouse gas reduction, energy conservation, and renewable energy generation. ABSTRACT SUBMITTALS TO THIS BAA CAN BE MADE USING THE ABSTRACT FORM and INSTRUCTIONS LOCATED AT THE FOLLOWING INTERNET ADDRESS: http://www.navfac.navy.mil/navfac_worldwide/specialty_centers/exwc/products_and_services/ev/ec/baa.html Submission process: This announcement is for abstracts/white papers only. Abstracts shall identify the specific topic area that the submission addresses. Each abstract must be specific to one of the topic areas. Multiple submissions are acceptable. Abstracts will be evaluated on relevance and merit. The abstract may be supplemented by resumes and lists of relevant publications and prior government projects. Abstracts will be thoroughly evaluated by a Government Technical Evaluation Board (TEB) to select technologies and methodologies that have potential benefits to the Navy. The TEB will consist of engineers, scientists, chemists, environmental specialists, and regulatory agency personnel who have experience in specific environmental technology areas. The abstracts will not be evaluated against each other since each possesses a unique technology with no common work statement. Once the evaluation process has been completed, the abstracts that meet the basic criteria of the BAA are posted on a protected web site available for DoD use only. When an abstract aligns with a customer need and funding, the NAVFAC contracting office may request a full proposal. Additional guidance will be provided at that time, regarding cost and pricing submittals in addition to a more comprehensive technical submission. Technical Evaluation: Unsuccessful abstracts will not receive a detailed description of the reasons for abstract rejection due to the anticipated volume of submissions. Unsuccessful full proposals will receive a debriefing in accordance with FAR 15. Awards will be in the form of contracts. Government/FFRDC/UARC entities interested in responding should read NOTE 8 below. An average contract duration is one (1) to three (3) years. The abstracts will be evaluated based on the following. Factors (1), (2) and (3) are approximately equal, and when combined, are approximately equal to (4). Factors 1-4, when combined, are approximately equal to price: 1. The scientific/technical merits and objectives of the abstract, as well as Naval relevance. 2. The qualifications, capabilities, and experience of the principal investigator, team leader, and/or key personnel who are critical in achieving the objectives of the abstract. Principle Investigators and key personnel should be identified in the proposal as such. 3. NAVFAC requires the offeror to provide their EMR and DART ratings. Safety is an integral and important part of NAVFAC contracting. If the offeror does not have an EMR/DART rating, they should state this and provide the rationale. See NFAS 15.304. 4. The contractors capabilities related experience, techniques, or unique combination of these that are integral factors in achieving the contractors proposed objectives. This equates to past performance, and will be assessed based on both relevance and confidence. See NFAS 15.304. 5. The cost relative to the proposed scientific/technical approach. NOTES: 1. An eligible abstract does not guarantee a contract. NEXWC reserves the right to select for award any, all, or none of the proposals received. NEXWC also reserves the right to select for award a portion of the work proposed in any single proposal. 2. An Offeror is required to register with the system for award management (SAM). No contract award will be made to any offeror that is not registered. Registration may take up to three weeks. SAM may be accessed at https://www.sam.gov. 3. The preceding data should be sufficient for completing the abstract. 4. There are no solicitation documents applying to this BAA. Request for a solicitation package will not be acknowledged. Those interested in participating in the BAA program must follow the instructions described herein to submit an abstract. 5. There is no commitment by the Navy either to make any contract awards or to be responsible for any money expended by the offeror before a contract award. 6. As no funding for contracts has been reserved in advance, NEXWC will be sharing qualified abstracts with other Federal Government activities to seek demonstration sites and/or funding. Some Federal Government activities may employ civilian contractors to determine the applicability of an offered technology to specific environmental projects. Technical and cost proposals submitted under this BAA will be protected from unauthorized disclosure in accordance with FAR 3.104-4 and 15.207. The cognizant Program Officer and other Government scientific experts will perform the evaluation of technical proposals. Restrictive notices notwithstanding, one or more support contractors may be utilized as subject-matter-expert technical consultants in accordance with FAR 37.204. However, proposal selection and award decisions are solely the responsibility of Government personnel. Each support contractor’s employee having access to technical and cost proposals submitted in response to this BAA will be required to sign a non-disclosure statement prior to receipt of any proposal submissions. An offeror may require the non-government personnel to execute a supplemental non-disclosure agreement by including a copy of the NDA with their proposal. However, note that a failure to come to an agreement may impact the ability to make an award. Please review NFAS/FAR 37.204 and NFAS 15.303(d)(4). 7. Responders are advised not to include Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Business proprietary or competition-sensitive information shall be marked as such. The offeror should expect to receive notification of receipt of the abstract by the Government within one week of submission. If the contractor does not receive a notification of abstract receipt, the contractor should call or e-mail NEXWC by using the phone number or e-mail address provided. 8. Historically Black Colleges/Universities and Minority Institutions (HBCU/MI) will be recognized according to DFARS 226.3. All responsible sources from academia and industry may submit proposals. No portion of this BAA will be set aside for HBCU and MI participation, due to the impracticality of reserving discrete or severable items of this research for exclusive competition among the entities. Non-DOD Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) including Department of Energy National Laboratories, are not eligible to receive awards under this BAA. However, teaming arrangements between FFRDCs and eligible principal bidders are allowed so long as they are permitted under the sponsoring agreement between the Government and the specific FFRDC. DFARS 235.017-1 allows DOD FFRDCs which function primarily as research laboratories to apply. Naval laboratories and warfare centers as well as other DOD and civilian agency laboratories are not eligible to receive awards under this BAA and should not directly submit an abstract response to this BAA. As with the FFRDCs, these organizations may team with other responsible sources from industry and academia that are submitting proposals under the BAA. University Affiliated Research Centers (UARC) are eligible to submit proposals under this BAA unless precluded from doing so by their DOD UARC contract or an organizational conflict of interest. 9.
