R--SPONSORED RESEARCH AND EDUCATION SUPPORT SERVICES INCREASE TO MAXIMUMORDERING VALUE AND EXTEND THE ORDERING PERIOD

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Headquarters | Published March 31, 2015  -  Deadline April 14, 2015
cpvs

NASA Headquarters intends to purchase services from Smart Global Solutions, JV LLC (SGS) on a sole surce basis and to increase the maximum ordering value by $11.0M from $134.9 million to $145.9 million and extend the ordering period for six months through January 31, 2016 of the Sponsored Research and Education Support Services (SRESS) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Contract (NNH10CC97C). Quantities ordered under this contract have exceeded estimates, and it is anticipated that the amount ordered under the contract will reach the maximum order value in the September/October 2015 timeframe. The government is currently working on awarding a follow-on procurement which is not expected to be awarded until the end of fourth quarter CY15/beginning of first quarter CY16. This increase in value and extension are needed to ensure continuing performance of critical support currently provided through tasks orders issued under the SRESS contract, avoid unnecessary duplication of effort, and to allow sufficient time for the follow-on competitive contract to be awarded. SGS, as the current incumbent, is the only responisble source qualified to perform this requirement due to its current performance of tasks related to numerous services such as managing, operating, and maintaining the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) (the agency's single solictiation, proposal, and peer-review decision support system); providing data to TechPort (an electronic tool operated by the Office of the Chief Technologist); planning, developing, and announcing electronic solicitations to the research community; and receiving and safe-guarding electronic proposals submitted by the research community. The statutory authority for other than full and open competition is 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1), Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services Will Satisfy Agency Requirements. The Government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12. Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 4:30 p.m. EST on April 14, 2015. Such capabilities/qualifications will be evaluated solely for the purpose of determining whether or not to conduct this procurement on a competitive basis. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the government. Oral communications are not acceptable in response to this notice. NASA Clause 1852.215-84, Ombudsman, is applicable.

Consult Appendix H Section H.2.1 regarding teaming requirements and partnership guidelines. The mission of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Office of Education is to advance high quality Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education across the United States. To maximize these efforts, NASA has consolidated its education activities into the Minority University Research and Education Project (MUREP). MUREP supports training and development of students and faculty in STEM at targeted colleges and universities, and provides opportunities for research and education that attract and prepare increasing numbers of students for STEM careers. As an integral part of this mission, the MUREP Institutional Research Opportunity (MIRO), previously University Research Centers (URC) is being established to strengthen and develop the research capacity and infrastructure of Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) in areas of strategic importance and value to NASA's mission and national priorities. Overall, MIRO awards aim to promote STEM literacy and to enhance and sustain the capability of institutions to perform NASA-related research and education, which directly supports NASA's four Mission Directorates - Aeronautics Research, Human Exploration and Space Operations, Science, and Space Technology. The specific goals of MIRO awards are to: 1) Expand the nation's base for aerospace research and development by fostering new aerospace research and technology development concepts; 2) Develop mechanisms for increased participation by faculty and students at MSIs in the research programs of NASA's Mission Directorates; 3) Increase the number of undergraduate and graduate degrees awarded to students from MSIs in NASA-related fields. Grantee institutions have the responsibility for budgeting and documenting compliance with Code of Federal Regulations, 14 CFR1230, commonly referred to as "the Common Rule for the Protection of Human Subjects." Research to develop NASA-themed exhibits, programs, curriculum products, etc., may involve full human subjects review through an Institutional Review Board (IRB) or it may be exempt. An IRB also certifies when research is exempt. Explanation of Other Category of Funding Activity - MIRO may be categorized as both Science and Technology and other Research and Development (ST) and Education funded activity.

A--FY 2015 NASA COOPERATIVE AGREEMENT NOTICE {CAN} EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM TOSTIMULATE COMPETITIVE RESEARCH {EPSCOR}: RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT {RID}

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Headquarters | Published December 23, 2014  -  Deadline March 20, 2015
cpvs

Eligible Applicants Public Law 102-588, passed in 1992, authorized NASA to initiate NASA EPSCoR to strengthen the research capability of jurisdictions that have not in the past participated equably in competitive aerospace research activities. The goal of NASA EPSCoR is to provide seed funding that will enable jurisdictions to develop an academic research enterprise directed toward long-term, self-sustaining, nationally-competitive capabilities in aerospace and aerospace-related research. This capability will, in turn, contribute to the jurisdiction's economic viability and expand the nation's base for aerospace research and development. Based on the availability of funding, NASA will continue to help jurisdictions achieve these goals through NASA EPSCoR.

Eligible Applicants Public Law 102-588, passed in 1992, authorized NASA to initiate NASA EPSCoR to strengthen the research capability of jurisdictions that have not in the past participated equably in competitive aerospace research activities. The goal of NASA EPSCoR is to provide seed funding that will enable jurisdictions to develop an academic research enterprise directed toward long-term, self-sustaining, nationally-competitive capabilities in aerospace and aerospace-related research. This capability will, in turn, contribute to the jurisdiction's economic viability and expand the nation's base for aerospace research and development. Based on the availability of funding, NASA will continue to help jurisdictions achieve these goals through NASA EPSCoR. Funded jurisdictions will be selected through a merit-based, peer-review competition.
