    In accordance with FAR 16.103(d)(1)(iv), the Memorandum for Record documents why a cost-plus-fixed-fee (CPFF) contract type was selected for this effort.   Rationale Each paragraph below corresponds to the lettered subparagraph under FAR 16.103(d)(1)(iv):   •(A)              Goals, objectives, specifications, and cost estimates for this research effort are insufficient to permit use of a fixed price contract.  Because of this absence of precise specifications and difficulties with estimating costs with accuracy, FAR 35.006 indicates the use of a CPFF contract is appropriate.   •(B)              The contractor's accounting system is adequate for determining costs applicable to this CPFF contract.   •(C)              Government resources are adequate to properly plan, award, and administer this CPFF contract.  Contract administration is being assigned to the cognizant Office of Naval Research (ONR) office in accordance with FAR 42.202.  The ONR administrative contracting officer will be assisted in monitoring contractor performance by the certified contracting officer's representative appointed in accordance with FAR 1.602-2(d).               (D)       The DARPA contract work, through Raytheon BBN Technologies Corp, will develop an agent-based simulation where agents 1) are goal-driven, making context-dependent decisions at the level of an individual agent, 2) possess static traits and malleable states, 3) experience local and global environmental effects on agent states and behaviors, and 4) lead to the emergence of social networks governing interpersonal interactions and influence.  There is no plan to further develop or mature this effort or transition to a firm-fixed price contract while the program is managed at DARPA.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Arlington, VA intends to negotiate a sole-source contract with General Dynamics Mission Systems (GDMS), San Antonio, TX, to acquire Classified Network Support Services for the Mission Services Office for the potential period 1 March 2016 to February 28, 2021, consisting of a maximum of a base and four option years. The proposed contract action is for Classified Network Support Services for which the Government intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority at FAR 6.302-1 "Only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements". The procurement is sole source to GDMS because components of the current DARPA enterprise system are proprietary to GDMS and there are currently no alternative sources that can immediately assume current operations. GDMS will provide and manage the full range of classified IT services, support and infrastructure necessary to support DARPA and to implement the DARPA IT strategic direction and operational objectives which will evolve over the course of contract performance. During contract performance, GDMS will be required to reduce the current proprietary barrier to competition in order facilitate competitive acquisitions for follow-on procurements. A follow-on competitive procurement will occur once the proprietary barriers to competition are alleviated. Subcontracting opportunities may be available with the prime contractor, General Dynamics Mission Systems. This announcement constitutes the only synopsis for this requirement and is issued for notification purposes only.

  The Air Force Office of Scientific Research manages the basic research investment for the U.S. Air Force. Conferences and workshops constitute key forums for research and technology interchange. We provide partial support for conferences and workshops as defined in the DoD Joint Travel Regulations in special areas of science that bring experts together to discuss recent research or educational findings, or to expose other researchers or advanced graduate students to new research and educational techniques in our areas of research interest. Our research interests are described in the most recent version of our general Broad Agency Announcement titled, "Research Interests of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research" posted on Grants.gov. We can only consider funding requests from U.S. institutions of higher education (IHE) or nonprofit organizations as described in 2 CFR 25.345, including foreign public entities and foreign organizations operated primarily for scientific, educational, service, charitable, or similar purposes in the public interest. We do not award grants to organizations with a for-profit organization type. Our support for a workshop or conference is not an endorsement of any organization. Our financial support through grants for conferences and workshops is dependent on the availability of funds, Program Officer's discretion, and certain other restrictions as described in the full announcement.

The Defense Sciences Office (DSO) at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting innovative ideas to transform design, enabling designs that are unimaginable today. DSO is specifically interested in fundamental research to develop new mathematics and algorithms that enable full incorporation of new materials and fabrication methods in design. Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in design. Specifically excluded is research that primarily results in evolutionary improvements to the existing state of practice.

Accelerated Computation for Efficient Scientific Simulation (ACCESS)

Other Defense Agencies, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency | Published May 6, 2016  -  Deadline June 28, 2016

The Defense Sciences Office at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is soliciting research proposals in technologies for the acceleration of scientific simulations of physical systems characterized by coupled partial differential equations (PDEs). The Accelerated Computation for Efficient Scientific Simulation (ACCESS) Program seeks innovative ideas for computational architectures that will achieve the equivalent of petaflops performance in a benchtop form-factor and be capable of what traditional architectures would define as “strong” scaling for predictive scientific simulations of interest. DARPA expects achieving these goals will require the parallel development of non-traditional component technologies exploiting novel hybrid analog/digital techniques, algorithms, instruction sets, controllers, and the integration and optimization of these components within prototype systems. Specifically excluded is research that primarily results in evolutionary improvements to the existing state of practice.
