The Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition requires a modified version of the software package known as ProTrawler. (BRAND NAME OR EQUAL TO) This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial products prepared in accordance with the format in FAR Subpart 13.1 and FAR Part 12, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; quotes 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 in accordance with FAR Subpart 13.3 under simplified acquisition procedures. The request for quote number is FDA-SOL-15-1146501. Provisions and clauses in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 05-81 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 511210, Software Publishers. The size standard is $35.5 million. The location is Silver Spring, Maryland. The period of performance is anticipated to be twelve (12) months from the date of award. This solicitation is Brand Name of Equal in accordance with FAR 52.211-6 Brand Name or Equal. FDA will evaluate quotations on the capability to meet the technical specifications stated under the SOW requirements and modify the specified software, including access to the source code. Past performance and cost will be considered if the technical specifications are met. Modified ProTrawler Software Module (Brand Name or Equal to) to Enhance Data Analysis of Bacterial Protein Profiling Data Sets Background: The Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry Branch requires the modification of a custom software tool known as Protein Trawler (branded "ProTrawler" since 2005). This product has been developed and integrated into the FDA under previous procurements. The software tool is a critical element in the analysis of mass spectrometry data acquired during the whole protein analysis of pathogenic and non-pathogenic bacteria. The software has been designed to take whole protein liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) data from our existing mass spectrometer systems and reduce the information contained into readily processed lists of mass, intensity and retention time. The software as it currently exists will: 1) read the data in from the data files; 2) sum a specified number of scans together to produce an average spectrum; 3) apply a user selected peak model to the average spectrum and reject all components of the spectrum that are noise; 4) apply a spectral deconvolution tool to the processed spectrum to yield the zero charge state molecular weight spectrum for the mass spectrum; 5) store the mass, intensity and retention time data for all of the masses in that spectral window; 6) repeat the process for all other retention time segments; 7) evaluate the data for all retention time windows and centroid the retention times and sum the peak areas for masses that appear in consecutive retention time windows; 8) produce a final mass/intensity/retention time list for the entire spectrum. BioAnalyte, Inc. is the only vendor capable of producing this product. Trawler is capable of reducing an entire data set in 10-30 minutes and thus produces a large amount of data in a short period of time. In 2006 and 2007, additional modifications were made to Trawler under three different procurements (F230650296P, F230650401P, and F230710577P). These modifications included substantial changes in the deconvolution algorithm, file handling, and changes in the binning algorithm. The principal objective of this contract is to modify the existing ProTrawler Software to meet our current needs, as defined in the statement of work, for analysis of bacterial protein profiles. The current version of ProTrawler is approved as a contained scientific product on the FDA's MAT list. Principal goals of the contract will be to modify the software code to enable analysis of data files from all available mass spectrometer platforms, increase data processing speed by providing threading and GPU parallelization, update run-time libraries to be 64-bit compatible, provide queuing of data files for analysis, and replace the existing processing engine with new code that provides for the simplification of model generation. Other modifications are addressed in the statement of work. Statement of Work The Contractor shall produce modifications of the Software known as ProTrawler (Brand Name or Equal to) to effect the following changes: 1. Update support for the latest vendor raw file formats. Required raw file formats are Thermo LTQ Orbitrap and QExactive, Bruker Maxis and Waters Synapt instruments. The capability must be demonstrated on data files that FDA will provide. 2. Modify software to increase processing speed. a. Redevelop a thread-safe algorithm and enable threaded execution. b. Update run-time libraries to support 64 bit addressing. c. Extend the threading model to implement the NVIDIA GPU Cuda libraries on an existing Nvidia Tesla C2075 GPU. d. Add a trawl queue such that multiple raw files can be submitted for processing at one time. 3. Re-write code to replace the ReSepct engine to eliminate interface constraints imposed by the PPL dll. Each processing step shall be replaced with new algorithms with substantially the same performance, including zero-charge mass reconstruction and de-isotoping. 4. Modification of software to include a functioning peptide/small molecule trawler function, which shall include: a. De-isotoping of spectra and Z=0 charge state reconstruction b. Trawling and chromatographic reconstruction of data (as with proteins) c. Ability to analyze Thermo and Bruker data formats. 5. Eliminate the multiple-models requirement by using data-dependent preprocessing that will reduce the number of model parameters. a. This will be accomplished by using data-dependent preprocessing that will reduce the number of model parameters. Affected parameters will include baseline subtraction, peak shape deconvolution, zero-charge mass reconstruction, and de-isotoping. 6. Provide documentation of the functionality of ProTrawler to include: a. Written documentation of how the final deconvolution algorithm works such that a description can serve as a scientific publication, including a precise description of how the filtering works subsequent to peak modeling and the method by which the final uncertainty estimates in M are obtained. b. A Help function that shall pull up screen shots or similar documentation to show the user how to perform certain processes, as well as to explain what any given parameter does. c. The ability to export as a csv or cut and paste any table produced within ProTrawler, including the list of the masses and charge states associated with each zero-charge reconstruction 7. EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD: The Government shall award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer is the lowest price technically acceptable (LPTA) offer, which shall represent best value to the Government. Award will be made on the basis of the lowest evaluated price (inclusive of options) meeting or exceeding the non-cost factor (technical conformance to the requirements of the solicitation). The Government intends to evaluate offers and award a contract without discussions. The offeror's initial offer should contain the offeror's best terms from a price standpoint. However, the Government reserves the right to conduct discussions if later determined by the Contracting Officer to be necessary. The Government may reject any or all offers if such action is in the best interest of the Government; accept other than the lowest offer; and waive informalities and minor irregularities in offers received. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: A. Technical Features Meeting/Exceeding Salient Requirements (BRAND NAME OR EQUAL) B. Total Price (all CLINs shall be priced) 8.

ATTACHMENT 4 Justification for Other Than Full and Open Competition I. IDENTIFICATION OF THE AGENCY AND THE CONTRACTING ACTIVITY, AND SPECIFIC IDENTIFICATION OF THE DOCUMENT AS A "JUSTIFICATION FOR OTHER THAN FULL AND OPEN COMPETITION" See page 1 II. NATURE AND/OR DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTION BEING APPROVED The National Archives and Records Administration is requesting to purchase Ten (10) Grass Valley STORM 3G Elite multi I/0 processor with the EDIUS Workgroup 8.x NLE (Non Linear Editing) software. Grass Valley's Edius systems are Non Linear Video/ Audio Editing Systems (NLEs). Non Linear Editing Systems are utilized by the staff of the Audio and Video Preservation Lab within Agency Services (RDS-A) in order to preserve and make available the video held in its care and custody here at the National Archives, including Presidential Libraries, Legislative Archives, Regional Archives and the National Declassification Center. While there are a variety of NLEs on the market the Grass Valley Systems have been used in the A/V Preservation Labs at NARA due to their ability to follow archival preservation digitization standards, (such as uncompressed 10 bit video streams and particular wrapper formats) flexible in handling a wide range of file formats and compression schemes, measurement tools such as live scopes and metering, and flexible I/0 interface that supports a wide range of video, audio, and sync configurations. The Grass Valley Systems are unique in that the system provides all the required functions and support to insure that the format, quality control, and quality assurance meets NARA's preservation standards and popular preservation guidelines. III. A DESCRIPTION OF THE SUPPLIES OR SERVICES REQUIRED TO MEET THE AGENCY'S NEEDS (INCLUDING THE ESTIMATED VALUE) The equipment required to meet the agency's need for digitization is the Grass Valley STORM 3G Elite multi I/0 processor with the EDIUS Workgroup 8.x NLE (Non Linear Editing) software. Grass Valley's Edius systems are Non Linear Video/ Audio Editing Systems (NLEs). Non Linear Editing Systems are utilized by the staff of the Audio and Video Preservation Lab within Agency Services (RDS-A) in order to preserve and make available the video held in its care and custody here at the National Archives, including Presidential Libraries, Legislative Archives, Regional Archives and the National Declassification Center. This system includes a flexible I/0 interface(STORM 3G Elite) required by the agency's diverse video collection and a software bundle (EDIUS Workgroup 8.x) that supports the many different file formats and compression schemes required for meeting preservation standards. The estimated value is $ for each hardware and software bundle for a total of $ IV. AN IDENTIFICATION OF THE STATUTORY AUTHORITY PERMITTING OTHER THAN FULL AND OPEN COMPETITION. 41 U.S.C. 3304(a)(1) "Only One Responsible Source" as implemented by FAR 6.302-1(c). V. A DEMONSTRATION THAT THE PROPOSED CONTRACTOR'S UNIQUE QUALIFICATIONS OR THE NATURE OF THE ACQUISITION REQUIRES USE OF THE AUTHORITY CITED. This acquisition meets the authority of FAR 6.302-1 (c) which states that this authority may be used when "the use of such descriptions in the acquisition is essential to the Government's requirements, thereby precluding consideration of a product manufactured by another company." See above II. VI. A DESCRIPTION OF EFFORTS MADE TO ENSURE THAT OFFERS ARE SOLICITED FROM AS MANY POTENTIAL SOURCES AS IS PRACTICABLE, INCLUDING WHETHER A NOTICE WAS OR WILL BE PUBLICIZED AS REQUIRED BY SUBPART 5.2 AND, IF NOT, WHICH EXCEPTION UNDER 5.202 APPLIES. N/A VII. A DETERMINATION BY THE CONTRACTING OFFICER THAT THE ANTICIPATED COST TO THE GOVERNMENT WILL BE FAIR AND REASONABLE A solicitation will be posted on Federal Business Opportunities. As three or more vendors are likely to submit quotations, adequate competition will render the resultant award price fair and reasonable. VIII. A DESCRIPTION OF THE MARKET RESEARCH CONDUCTED (SEE PART 10) AND THE RESULTS OR A STATEMENT OF THE REASON MARKET RESEARCH WAS NOT CONDUCTED We researched several products utilizing many online sources to obtain information from a variety of manufacturers of video capture hardware\software to discover the available options to create preservation quality video files. These online sources included manufacturer's product specification pages as well as vendor listings and reviews. Preservation quality video files have a stringent set of requirements that only a few products can fulfill. In the past year we have also tested four different video capture solutions, both hardware and software in a "real world" environment. We tested the capture capabilities of each of these solutions with regards to their product specifications. While performing these tests we have concluded that the Storm 3G Elite\Grass Valley Edius combination best meets our needs of creating preservation quality video files. It also contains the flexibility to aid in the capture of those files, with live scopes and multiple I\0 options.

There are hundreds of tape drives (e.g. 3480, 3490, DLT, 8000, 9-track, etc.) that will require maintenance and repair services due to the age of the drives to ensure that they remain functional. Most drives are utilized to process Unclassified, Title-13, and classified data for archival preservation purposes. The APS is a custom-developed software system used by NARA to manage the technical administration of accession, preservation, and reference of permanent, electronic records within NARA. As of recently, the APS is used to process classified (TS, TS-SCI) electronic records preservation and produce reference copy and also used for migration of the permanent unclassified record to the Electronic Records Archives System (ERA). The unclassified AERIC system is also used for verification of those permanent records processed by the APS system. The ERA system does not currently have the capability to extract electronic records from 3480, 3490, DLT, and 9-track tapes. These functions are to be subsumed by NARA's ERA system; however, the system does not currently have the capability of extracting data from these old devices. 2.0 Basic Requirements 2.1 The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has a requirement for maintenance and repair services for tape drives supporting the Archival Preservation System (APS) and Archival Electronic Records Inspection and Control System (AERIC).

The stories of our nation and our people are told in the records and artifacts cared for in NARA facilities around the country and people can discover, use, and learn from this documentary heritage. The mission is to ensure ready access to the essential evidence that documents the rights of American citizens, the actions of Federal officials, and the national experience. 1.2 The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has a requirement for maintenance and repair services for tape drives supporting the Archival Preservation System (APS) and the Archival Electronic Records Inspection and Control System (AERIC). The maintenance and repair services will cover 136 tape drives on-line (e.g. 3480, 3490, DLT, 8000, 9-track, etc.). This maintenance is needed due to repeated use and the age of the drives, and to ensure that they remain functional. Additional tape drives, not covered under this requirement, can be swapped out when needed or used for spare parts. 1.3 Most tape drives are utilized to process Unclassified, Title-13, and classified data for archival preservation purposes. The APS is a custom-developed software system used by NARA to manage the technical administration of accession, preservation, and reference of permanent, electronic records within NARA. As of recently, the APS is used to process classified (TS, TS-SCI) electronic records preservation and produce reference copy and also used for migration of the permanent unclassified record to the Electronic Records Archives System (ERA). The unclassified AERIC system is also used for verification of those permanent records processed by the APS system. The ERA system does not currently have the capability to extract electronic records from 3480, 3490, DLT, and 9-track tapes. These functions are to be subsumed by NARA's ERA system. 2.0 SCOPE 2.1 The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has a requirement for maintenance and repair services for tape drives supporting the Archival Preservation System (APS) and Archival Electronic Records Inspection and Control System (AERIC). There are 136 tape drives (e.g. 3480, 3490, DLT, 8000, 9-track, etc.) that will require maintenance and repair services due to the age of the drives to ensure that the tape drives remain functional. 2.2 Quarterly Maintenance and Repair Services for Tape Drives 2.2.1 There are 136 tape drives on-line and ready to be used. However, not all tape drives are being used constantly. On each quarterly maintenance visit to NARA, the NARA Point of Contact (POC) will identify those tape drives which have been used excessively and need maintenance and those that are in need of repair. On a typical visit there will be approximately 20-25 tape drives needing maintenance and 2-7 of those will usually need minor repairs. The Contractor will determine if repairs can be done on-site or at its facility. 2.2.2 Contractor shall repair broken or malfunctioning drives and provide replacement parts as required. 2.2.3 Contractor shall remove sticky labels from tape drives. 2.2.4 Contractor shall provide preventative maintenance on the tape drives identified by the NARA POC. Preventative maintenance shall include:• Inspection of system and tape drives• Cleaning drives• Removal of sticky labels from tape drives• Making any necessary adjustments• Basic manufacturer suggested maintenance 2.3 Repairs to tape drives are required to be completed within one week of receiving approval from the NARA POC to perform the repair services. If repairs cannot be completed within one week, the Contractor shall inform the NARA POC immediately. 2.4 After each quarterly inspection, Contractor shall provide a maintenance report detailing any findings. The maintenance report must be submitted to the NARA POC within two days of the inspection. 2.5 Tape drives may be repaired onsite or offsite. 2.6 Contractor shall get approval from the NARA POC prior to performing any onsite or offsite repairs on malfunctioning drives. 2.7 Contractor shall provide all parts, tools, and personnel necessary to perform maintenance and repair services. 3.0 PLACE OF PERFORMANCE 3.1 Maintenance and repair services may be performed at the following location or offsite:National Archives and Records Administration8601 Adelphi RoadCollege Park, MD 20740 3.2 No transportation or travel expenses will be paid. 4.0 HOURS OF OPERATION 4.1 Work shall be undertaken during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM ET, unless mutually agreed upon by the NARA Point of Contact and the Contractor.                                           ATTACHMENT 3ADDITIONAL NARA TERMS AND CONDITIONS(Addenda to FAR clause 52.212-4)   I.

Selection of the Contractor to perform this contract will be based on NARA's assessment of the best overall value to the Government. Accordingly, best value for this contract will be obtained through a lowest price technically acceptable evaluation. Exceptions taken to any terms and conditions stated in the RFQ must be clearly outlined on a separate page of the Contractor's quotation entitled "Exceptions." Exceptions may render a Contractor's quotation technically unacceptable for award. The Contractor must also include complete rationale, justification, and the cost impact of each exception noted. The Government reserves the right to make an award on the initial quotation without discussions of this procurement. For evaluation purposes, the Total Contract Ceiling Price will be used to determine the lowest price. The Total Ceiling Price for each not-to-exceed CLIN will be determined by multiplying the Maximum Quantity by the Firm Fixed Unit Price. The evaluated Total Contract Ceiling Price will be determined by summing the Total Ceiling Price of all performance years (base year and all option years). Contractors must provide pricing (USD) for each CLIN. FOB destination pricing is required. Attachment 6, RFQ Information Sheet, must be submitted with quotations.
