A--ARO Section of the ARL Core Broad Agency Announcement for Basic and Applied Scientific Research for Fiscal Years 2012 through 2017

Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published March 30, 2015  -  Deadline March 31, 2017
cpvs

This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. The purpose of this modification, W911NF-12-R-0012-03, is to update Scientific Areas of Interests, Topic Point of Contact information and administrative maintenance of the BAA. I. OVERVIEW OF THE FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: The purpose of this Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is to solicit research proposals in the engineering, physical, life, and information sciences for submission to the Army Research Office (ARO) for consideration for possible funding. For ease of reference, this BAA is an extraction of the ARO sections of the Army Research Laboratory BAA. (www.arl.army.mil/www/default.cfm?page=8 ). This BAA is issued in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) section 6.102(d)(2), which provides for the competitive selection of basic and applied research and that part of development not related to the development of a specific system or hardware procurement. Proposals submitted in response to this BAA and selected for award are considered to be the result of full and open competition and in full compliance with the provision of Public Law 98-369, quote mark The Competition in Contracting Act of 1984 quote mark and subsequent amendments. Research proposals are sought from educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, and commercial organizations for scientific research in mechanical sciences, environmental sciences, mathematics, electronics, computing science, physics, chemistry, life sciences, materials science and network science. Proposals will be evaluated only if they are for scientific study and experimentation directed toward advancing the state of the art or increasing knowledge and understanding. Proposals focused on specific devices or components are beyond the scope of this BAA. Proposals are expected to be for cutting-edge innovative research that could produce discoveries that would have a significant impact on enabling new and improved Army operational capabilities and related technologies. The specific research areas and topics of interest described in this document should be viewed as suggestive, rather than limiting. The ARO is always interested in considering new innovative research concepts of relevance to the Army. Additional information can be found at the ARO website: http://www.arl.army.mil/www/default.cfm?page=29. In order to conserve valuable offeror and Government resources, and to facilitate determining whether a proposed research idea meets the guidelines described herein, prospective offerors contemplating submission of a whitepaper or proposal are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate Technical Point of Contact (TPOC). The TPOCs' names, telephone numbers, and e- mail addresses are listed immediately after each research area of interest. If an offeror elects to submit a whitepaper, it should be prepared in accordance with the instructions contained in this BAA. Upon receipt, a whitepaper will be evaluated and the offeror will be advised of the results. Offerors whose whitepapers receive a favorable evaluation will likely be encouraged to prepare a complete proposal in accordance with instructions contained in this BAA. The costs of whitepapers and/or complete proposals in response to this BAA are not considered an allowable direct charge to any award resulting from this BAA or any other award. It may be an allowable expense to the normal bid and proposal indirect costs specified in FAR 31.205-18. The ARO prefers proposals to cover a 3-year period and include a brief summary of work contemplated for each 12-month period so that awards may be negotiated for an entire 3-year program or for individual 1-year increments of the total program. Proposals may be submitted at any time. The Army has a long history of advocating and supporting research at Historically Black Colleges & Universities and Minority-Serving Institutions (HBCU/MI). The ARO actively seeks research proposals from HBCUs and MIs in full competition with all offerors who may submit proposals under this BAA. The ARO also encourages the inclusion of HBCUs and/or MIs as part of a consortium proposals or as subcontractors/sub-grantees to prime recipients. In accordance with federal statutes, regulations, and Department of Defense and Army policies, no person on grounds of race, color, age, sex, national origin, or disability shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving financial assistance from the Army. Offerors submitting proposals are cautioned that only a Contracting or Grants Officer can obligate the Government to any legal instrument involving expenditure of Government funds. All administrative inquires regarding this BAA shall be submitted in email to: usarmy.rtp.aro.mbx.baa@mail.mil. Scientific and technical questions should be referred to the TPOCs shown following each research area of interest.

A--ARL Core Broad Agency Announcement for Basic and Applied Scientific Research for Fiscal Years 2012 through 2017

Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published March 30, 2015  -  Deadline March 31, 2017
cpvs

This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. The purpose of this modification, W911NF-12-R-0011-03, is to update Scientific Areas of Interests, Topic Point of Contact information and administrative maintenance of the BAA. I. OVERVIEW OF THE FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: INTRODUCTION This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), which sets forth research areas of interest to the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Directorates and Army Research Office (ARO), is issued under the paragraph 6.102(d)(2) of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which provides for the competitive selection of basic research proposals. Proposals submitted in response to this BAA and selected for award are considered to be the result of full and open competition and in full compliance with the provision of Public Law 98-369, quote mark The Competition in Contracting Act of 1984 quote mark and subsequent amendments. Research proposals are sought from educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, and commercial organizations for research in materials sciences; ballistics and aeromechanics sciences; information sciences; human sciences; survivability, lethality, and vulnerability analysis and assessment; chemistry; electronics; physics; environmental sciences; life sciences; mechanical sciences, mathematical sciences, computing sciences and network sciences. Proposals will be evaluated only if they are for scientific study and experimentation directed toward advancing the state of the art or increasing knowledge and understanding. ARO has primary responsibility for ARL's extramural basic research programs, with specific research interests as described in Part II.A.2. The ARL Directorates, while having primary responsibility for ARL's in-house research programs, also manage select extramural basic research programs. The research interests of the Directorates are described in Part II.A.1. Although ARL Directorates will consider funding proposals for extramural research programs, they can fund only a modest number of proposals in a single fiscal year. It should be noted that the ARL Directorates are highly interested in performing research in collaboration with other scientists and engineers. So, in addition to funding select external research projects, the ARL Directorates also have a strong interest in performing joint research with other organizations in ARL's core competency areas as described in this BAA. Collaboration is a central tenet of ARL's new Open Campus Initiative. Information regarding the Open Campus Initiative can be found on the ARL website (a summary at: http://www.arl.army.mil/www/default.cfm?page=2357 and details regarding specific opportunities at: http://www.arl.army.mil/www/pages/2357/ARL_Open_Campus_Opportunities.pdf). Inquiries regarding funding and/or collaborations should be directed to the listed Technical Point of Contact (TPOC). Foreign owned, controlled, or influenced firms are advised that security restrictions may apply that could preclude their participation in these efforts. Before preparing a proposal, such firms are requested to contact the ARL Security and Counterintelligence Branch (301) 394-2444 concerning their eligibility. Pursuant to the policy of FAR 35.017 and supplements, selected Federally Funded Research and Development Centers may propose under this BAA. PART II, Other Programs, addresses specific contributions to Conferences and Symposia and Historically Black Colleges & Universities and Minority-Serving Institutions (HBCU/MI)support. The Army has a long history of advocating and supporting research at HBCU and MIs. We actively seek research proposals from HBCUs and MIs in full competition with all offerors who may submit proposals under this BAA. Proposals may be submitted at any time. We also encourage the inclusion of HBCUs and/or MIs as part of a consortium proposal or as subcontractors/ subgrantees to prime recipients. In order to conserve valuable offeror and Government resources and to facilitate determining whether a proposed research idea meets the guidelines described herein, prospective offerors contemplating submission of a whitepaper or proposal are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate technical point of contact (TPOC) before submission. The TPOCs' names, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses are listed immediately after each research area of interest. If an offeror elects to submit a whitepaper, it must be prepared in accordance with the instructions contained in PART III Section 3. Upon receipt, a whitepaper will be evaluated and the offeror shall be advised of the evaluation results. Offerors whose whitepapers receive a favorable evaluation may be contacted to prepare a complete proposal in accordance with instructions contained in PART III Section 5. The costs of whitepapers and/or complete proposals in response to this BAA are not considered an allowable direct charge to any award resulting from this BAA or any other award. It may be an allowable expense to the normal bid and proposal indirect costs specified in FAR 31.205-18. In accordance with federal statutes, regulations, and Department of Defense and Army policies, no person on grounds of race, color, age, sex, national origin, or disability shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving financial assistance from the Army. Offerors submitting proposals are cautioned that only a Contracting or Grants Officer may obligate the Government to any legal instrument involving expenditure of Government funds. This BAA also applies to research proposals submitted to the RDECOM International Technology Centers. For ARL Directorate Research Areas II.A.1, offerors should discuss the preferred performance period with the Technical Point of Contact (TPOC). For ARO's Research Areas II.A.2, it is preferred that proposals are submitted to cover a 3-year period and include a brief summary of work contemplated for each 12-month period so that awards may be negotiated for an entire 3-year program or for individual 1-year increments of the total program. All administrative inquires regarding this BAA shall be addressed to voice mailbox number 919-549-4375. Technical questions should be referred to the TPOCs shown following each research area of interest. When an inquiry is made, please clearly state your name, correct spelling, and telephone number. This BAA is available on the following websites: http://www.arl.army.mil/www/default.cfm?page=8 http://www.grants.gov www.fbo.gov This BAA is a continuously open announcement valid throughout the period from the date of issuance through 31 March 2017, unless announced otherwise, and supersedes the ARL BAA dated October 2007. Amendments to this BAA will be posted to the FedBizOpps web site and published at the above websites when they occur. Interested parties are encouraged to periodically check these websites for updates and amendments.

(D&B has no affiliation with this 4-character suffix.) This 4-character suffix may be assigned at the discretion of the business concern to establish additional SAM records for identifying alternative Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) accounts (see the FAR at Subpart 32.11) for the same concern. ?Registered in the SAM database? means that? (1) The Contractor has entered all mandatory information, including the DUNS number or the DUNS+4 number, into the SAM database; (2) The Contractor?s CAGE code is in the SAM database; and (3) The Government has validated all mandatory data fields, to include validation of the Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and has marked the record ?Active?. The Contractor will be required to provide consent for TIN validation to the Government as a part of the SAM registration process. ?System for Award Management (SAM)? means the primary Government repository for prospective federal awardee information and the centralized Government system for certain contracting, grants, and other assistance related processes.

(2) The SAM registration shall be for the same name and address identified on the contract, with its associated CAGE code and DUNS or DUNS+4. (3) If indicated by the Government during performance, registration in an alternate system may be required in lieu of SAM. (c) If the Contractor does not have a DUNS number, it should contact Dun and Bradstreet directly to obtain one. (1) A contractor may obtain a DUNS number?

Updating information in the SAM does not alter the terms and conditions of this contract and is not a substitute for a properly executed contractual document. (g)(1)(i) If a Contractor has legally changed its business name, ?doing business as? name, or division name (whichever is shown on the contract), or has transferred the assets used in performing the contract, but has not completed the necessary requirements regarding novation and change-of-name agreements in Subpart 42.12, the Contractor shall provide the responsible Contracting Officer sufficient documentation to support the legally changed name with a minimum of one business day?s written notification of its intention to?

Evaluation ProcessThe Government will perform a technical and price evaluation, based on the Quoter's written submission, to assess the "best value" to the Government, price and other factors considered. Each quoter's written technical submission will be reviewed and evaluated on an adjectival basis, for each of the technical evaluation factors. Simple statements of compliance/reiteration (i.e., "understood"; "will comply"), without a detailed description of how compliance will be met, may not sufficiently demonstrate a quoter's ability to meet the technical requirements and may result in a rating of "fail". Technical evaluations will be conducted using the adjectival ratings and definitions provided below. (End of Addendum) (ix) Provision at FAR 52.212-2, Evaluation Commercial Items, applies to this acquisition. The Government will evaluate offers in response to this request in accordance with FAR Part 13.106 procedures. (a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible responder whose quote conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following shall be used to evaluate quotes: (i) Technical Capability:Technical responses shall contain sufficient content for the Government to determine whether quoters understand and have experience with the SOW requirements. Written responses for this section will be evaluated against the evaluation criteria listed below. These factors will be evaluated as pass/fail and past performance and price will not be evaluated if the vendor fails this area. Factor 1. Additionally, to demonstrate understanding, the quoter shall propose sound, practical, and feasible methods to accomplish all tasks of the Statement of Work (SOW), within the stated period of performance. For technical approach purposes, quoters shall describe a technical approach in the SOW that supports the requirement. Demonstrated understanding and experience also includes the extent to which the quoter understands the detailed service requirements identified in the Statement of Work. Factor 2. Document capabilities and procedures to support product compliance with the NIEHS Standard Specification for Open Formula Rat and Mouse Ration, 18% Crude Protein Autoclaveable (NIH-31) - Attachment II. Factor 3. Facilities and Equipment - demonstrate availability of necessary equipment and supply resource to provide the Rodent Feed in accordance with the solicitation requirement (e.g. manufacturing and warehouse facilities, production and warehouse facility grounds, and equipment and machinery as stated in standard specification). A site inspection by the Government may be required as part of the evaluation. Factor 4. Quality Assurance, Inspection, and Test Procedures - document capabilities to support compliance with quality assurance, inspection, and test procedures. (ii) Price Evaluation (b) The Government will evaluate the total proposed price of performing this work (base and all options - for both price quotes), in accordance with the price evaluation section of the RFQ. The Government will evaluate the option under FAR 52.217-8 at award. Price will not be rated adjectivally, but will be evaluated based on a comprehensive review, in accordance with the pricing content and instructions section above, and as described below. Price quotes will be evaluated with respect to accuracy and completeness based on information submitted in the written submission. This process will involve verification that figures are correctly calculated, prices are presented in the requested format, and that proposed rates and any applicable discounts are accurate. Additionally, the Government may utilize one or more of the following methods to evaluate price: • Review of the proposed level of effort and associated pricing;• Analysis of proposed labor mix;• Comparison to other quotes received;• Comparison and/or analysis based on Independent Government Cost Estimate;• Price Realism; and/or• Comparison/Analysis to historical cost. As part of the price evaluation, the Government will evaluate the Option to Extend Services (FAR Clause 52.217-8) by dividing the 12-month option period total by two (2), and adding the calculated six-month total to the quoter's total proposed price. Thus, for the purpose of evaluation, the quoter's total price will include the base period, all optional periods and the optional extension of services period. Though, quoters are only required to price the base and option periods and shall not submit a price for the potential six-month extension of services period. The Government will evaluate each quoter's past performance based upon customer satisfaction with the services provided on past or current projects. (iii) Past Performance. (a) Quoters shall identify, in detail, three (3) contracts, no more than five (5), which have recently been performed (within the last 3 years), or are currently being performed, which are similar in scope for services of this magnitude and complexity. The quoter shall provide the following information with respect to each of these contracts: 1. Contract number, Task Order number (if applicable), project title & description of the project 2. Total contract value and type of contract3. Date of contract award and period of performance4. Government Agency/Organization Name5. Name, address and telephone number of all applicable contract points of contact6. Brief description of contract work, scope, and responsibilities 7. Brief narrative as to how the reference relates to this effort. As part of past performance evaluation, Past Performance will be evaluated using recent and relevant information obtained from the references provided by the responder as well as past performance information independently obtained by the Government. Past Performance will be evaluated and given of rating of "Acceptable", "Unacceptable", or "Neutral" as defined below. Recent and relevant Past Performance is defined in Addendum to FAR 52.212-1, Instructions to Offerors - Commercial Items, paragraph 2.b. The Government is not required to contact all references provided by the quoter. Also, references other than those identified by the offeror may be contacted by the Government to obtain additional information that will be used in the evaluation of the offeror's past performance. (b) Options. The Government will evaluate offers for award proposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s). (c) A written notice of award or acceptance of a quotation mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful responder within the time for acceptance specified in the quote, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the quote's specified expiration time, the Government may accept a quotation (or part of a quote), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award. (d) Rating Definitions: Definitions of Ratings for Technical Capability:Pass. Quote meets or exceeds all specified requirements, demonstrates an acceptable understanding of the requirement, and proposes a sound, practical, and feasible approach to accomplish the requirements of the Statement of Work.Fail. Quote does not meet requirements, has not demonstrated an adequate approach, or does not demonstrate an acceptable understanding of the requirement. Definitions of Ratings for Past Performance: Acceptable. Based on the responder's performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that the responder will successfully perform the required effort, or the responder's performance record is unknown. Unacceptable. Based on the responder's performance record, the Government has no reasonable expectation that the responder will be able to successfully perform the required effort. Neutral. No relevant performance record Is identifiable upon which to base a meaningful performance rating. A search was unable to identify any relevant past performance information for the quoter or key team members/subcontractors or their key personnel. This is neither a negative or positive assessment. Notes: Quoters are advised that the Government may use past performance information obtained from centralized past performance databases and sources other than those identified by the quoter. The information obtained may be used for both the responsibility determination and the best value decision. A quoter who with no relevant past performance record will be rated neither favorably nor unfavorably and will receive a neutral rating. Contracts listed may include those entered into with Government agencies or private sector. For contractors with no relevant past performance, the government may take into account information regarding the past performance of predecessor companies, key personnel with relevant past experience or subcontractors that will perform key aspects of the requirement.

Fedbid is a mechanism used by this office to solicit for common use commercial items in accordance with FAR 13.5. Fedbid is NOT a forum for filing protests against the Government. Attempts to file protests through Fedbid will not be considered legitimate as they do not conform to the requirements in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). It is preferable that disputes and protests be resolved as quickly as possible at the lowest level possible before considering the more formal process described below. The HQ, AMC-Level Protest Program is intended to encourage interested parties to seek resolution of their concerns within AMC, as an Alternate Dispute Resolution forum, rather than filing a protest with the Government Accountability Office (GAO) or other external forum. Contract award or performance is suspended during the protest to the same extent, and within the same time periods, as if filed at the GAO. The AMC protest decision goal is to resolve protests within 20 working days from filing. To be timely, protests must be filed within the periods specified in FAR 33.10. If you want to file a protest under the AMC-Level Protest Program, the protest must request resolution under that program and be sent to the address below. All other agencylevel protests should be sent to the contracting officer for resolution. The address for filing a protest directly with AMC is: Headquarters U.S. Army Materiel Command Office of Command Counsel-Deputy Command Counsel 4400 Martin Road Rm: A6SE040.001 Redstone Arsenal, AL 35898-5000 Fax: (256) 450-8840 or e-mail: usarmy.redstone.usamc.mbx.protests@mail.mil.

Country of Origin ______________ _________________ ______________ _________________ ______________ _________________ [List as necessary] (iii) The Government will evaluate offers in accordance with the policies and procedures of FAR Part 25. For line items covered by the WTO GPA, the Government will evaluate offers of U.S.-made or designated country end products without regard to the restrictions of the Buy American statute. The Government will consider for award only offers of U.S.-made or designated country end products unless the Contracting Officer determines that there are no offers for such products or that the offers for such products are insufficient to fulfill the requirements of the solicitation. (h) Certification Regarding Responsibility Matters (Executive Order 12689). (Applies only if the contract value is expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold.) The offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that the offeror and/or any of its principals- (1) o Are, o are not presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency; (2) o Have, o have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a Federal, state or local government contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or state antitrust statutes relating to the submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws, or receiving stolen property; (3) o Are, o are not presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a Government entity with, commission of any of these offenses enumerated in paragraph (h)(2) of this clause; and (4) o Have, o have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,000 for which the liability remains unsatisfied. (i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply: (A) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted. (B) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection action is precluded. (ii) Examples. (A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. §6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (B) The IRS has filed a notice of Federal tax lien with respect to an assessed tax liability, and the taxpayer has been issued a notice under I.R.C. §6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (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. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. §362 (the Bankruptcy Code). (i) Certification Regarding Knowledge of Child Labor for Listed End Products (Executive Order 13126). [The Contracting Officer must list in paragraph (i)(1) any end products being acquired under this solicitation that are included in the List of Products Requiring Contractor Certification as to Forced or Indentured Child Labor, unless excluded at 22.1503(b).] (1) Listed end products.

(3) If paragraph (k)(1) or (k)(2) of this clause applies- (i) If the offeror does not certify to the conditions in paragraph (k)(1) or (k)(2) and the Contracting Officer did not attach a Service Contract Labor Standards wage determination to the solicitation, the offeror shall notify the Contracting Officer as soon as possible; and (ii) The Contracting Officer may not make an award to the offeror if the offeror fails to execute the certification in paragraph (k)(1) or (k)(2) of this clause or to contact the Contracting Officer as required in paragraph (k)(3)(i) of this clause. (l) Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) (26 U.S.C. 6109, 31 U.S.C. 7701). (Not applicable if the offeror is required to provide this information to the SAM database to be eligible for award.) (1) All offerors must submit the information required in paragraphs (l)(3) through (l)(5) of this provision to comply with debt collection requirements of 31 U.S.C. 7701(c) and 3325(d), reporting requirements of 26 U.S.C. 6041, 6041A, and 6050M, and implementing regulations issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
