COMBINED SYNOPSIS SOLICITATION i. 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; quotes are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. The government anticipates a single (all or none), firm fixed price award. A quotation is not an offer and, consequently, cannot be accepted by the Government to form a binding contract. Therefore, issuance by the Government of an order in response to a supplier's quotation does not establish a contract. The order is an offer by the Government to the supplier to buy certain supplies or services upon specified terms and conditions. A contract is established when the supplier accepts the offer. ii.

The following is the project overview: 1. After a task order is issued, the A/E shall develop three (3) conceptual plans for VA selection. The selected plan will be developed further to include space programs and related details. The space planning must address improvement of work flow based on sequence of operations. i. All designs must adhere to VA, JCAHO, NFPA, and life safety latest requirements. The A-E shall prepare all design documents in conformance with, but not limited to, the applicable portions of the following: 1.

Extraneous material that does not apply to the project must be deleted. While relevant items should be covered in full scope to assure compliance by the contractor and quality construction, the use of notes and/or pictures on the drawings both to accentuate important items in the specifications, and/or to take the place of lengthy written specifications for routine or simple items is encouraged. Entire specifications for simple projects of low monetary value may be by notes on the drawings. Projects should be designed with LEED certification in mind. Certification may or may not be pursued. iii. The A-E will also provide a date of publication for all industry, association and Government standards referenced in the specifications. The date used will be the current publication date of the standard at the time of design. It is not acceptable to state "use the latest or current issue". iv.

NASA/CENTER has a requirement for test data on a Moog DST-13 5 lbf bipropellant engine. These data are needed to verify the capability of this engine to meet critical operational requirements for the Europa Clipper mission. The DST-13 engine to be tested during this program is surplus from a previous GSFC program and will be provided to the supplier. The propellants for this engine are MON-3 and monomethylhydrazine (MMH). The supplier shall modify the engine by installing a new set of trim orifices to achieve the desired thrust and mixture ratio. Water flow tests shall be conducted before and after the trimming operation to verify the desired conditions have been achieved. The supplier shall then mount the engine in a vacuum test chamber and conducts test at various conditions to 1. Measure the engine steady-state thrust and specific impulse over a range of feed pressures and propellant temperatures2. Measure the minimum impulse bit (IBIT) and specific impulse for pulse mode conditions with electrical pulse widths (EPW) as low as 6 msec3. Conduct steady-state and pulse mode tests with propellants cooled to as low as 15F (-9C) and the engine injector cooled to as low as -20F (-29C)The ability to measure low thrust and impulse levels and the mass throughput for each pulse using accurate pulse tanks is critical for obtaining accurate min-IBIT data and the successful conduct of this program. Also critical is the ability to thermally condition the propellants and engine hardware for the cold propellant and engine tests and to maintain the thermal conditioning throughout the test. As well as the standard facility capabilities for such tests, the facility in which these tests are conducted must have the ability to 1. maintain a low vacuum pressure (0.03 psia) throughout the test2. conduct pulse mode tests at any combination of on- and off-times3. test at feed pressures as high as 400 psia and propellant temperatures as low as 15F (-9C)4. have multiple infrared (IR) cameras to remotely measure engine temperatures across the entire engine body 5. measure the mass for individual pulses during pulse mode tests using accurate pulse tanksFollowing the tests, the supplier shall deliver all test data to GSFC in electronic format. No test report is required by the Contractor.NASA/CENTER intends to purchase the items from Moog Inc., Space and Defense Group Seneca and Jamison Road, Plant 20, East Aurora, New York 14052. Moog is the manufacturer of the thruster to be tested and are therefore the only company which is familiar with its operational characteristics. Moog is the only known company to have ever tested this thruster. Knowledge of the thruster design and operational characteristics is essential for successfully conducting these tests. The Government intends 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 5:00 p.m. local time on June 10,2016. Such capabilities/qualifications will be evaluated solely for the purpose of determining whether or not to conduct this procurement on a competitive basis.
