The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms.

(VI) Description of requirements is as follows:SCOPE STATEMENT OF NEED (SON)DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE (DOC)NATIONAL OCEANIC ATMOSPHERIC ADMINISTRATION (NOAA)NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE (NWS) PURCHASE REQUEST - NWWT9386-16-00185 HELIUM SUPPLY, DELIVERY AND CYLINDER RENTAL FOR LAS VEGAS WFO   1. BACKGROUND The NWS is a 24 hour, 365 day operation, and is a public safety agency. The primary mission of the NWS is the protection of life and property. The NWS in Las Vegas, Nevada launches weather balloons routinely twice a day at 3am and 3pm PST (4am and 4pm PDT). Each balloon requires approximately 75 cubic feet (CF) of helium. Instrumentation is attached to each balloon which provides measurements of temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, and height. This data is transmitted worldwide and used to make weather forecasts out to 10 days. 2. OBJECTIVE The objective of the NWS is to receive and keep onsite an adequate supply of helium (no less than 450 CF, up to 3,600 CF) to perform the weather balloon launches on schedule. 3. SCOPE The Contractor is responsible for supplying helium to the NWS office located at 7851 Dean Martin Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada 89139. The total amount of helium to be delivered for the 12 month period of this requirement will be a minimum of 54,750 CF, up to a maximum of 61,000 CF. The helium will be supplied at regular intervals throughout the period, provided in six packs, delivered approximately every two weeks. See Delivery Schedule in Section 6, below, for details. 4. PERIOD OF PERFORMANCE The period of performance for this requirement is 12 months, beginning May 1, 2016 and ending by April 30, 2017. 5. PLACE OF PERFORMANCE All deliveries are to be made to the NWS office located at 7851 Dean Martin Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada 89139. The point of delivery is at the Upper Air Inflation building, located behind our locked gated fence; just north of our office building. 6. REQUIREMENTS Site Storage and Usage: All helium must be provided in six packs as the facility is not arranged to allow for other configurations; we cannot secure individual cylinders. The Government has space at the delivery point to receive and store up to three 6-packs of helium at a time. It is the objective of this requirement to keep onsite between 1,050 and 3,150 CF of helium; the intent being that we will be at our maximum of 3,150 CF after each delivery, and will order the next delivery when we are at or near our minimum of 1,050 CF (approximately 2,100 CF is used every two weeks). Transition Period: If this contract is awarded to other than the incumbent Contractor, then prior to the first day of the contract, the new Contractor and one of the agency points of contact, listed in section 9 below, shall coordinate the initial delivery to coincide with the pickup of cylinders by the former contractor. Likewise, upon completion of this contract, if the new follow-on contract is awarded to other than the current Contractor, the current Contractor shall participate in the transition coordination efforts in order to minimize the risk of a missed balloon launch due to the helium being unavailable at the launch site. The end-of-contract transition period may include a lighter delivery in the final weeks of the contract. Delivery Schedule: The National Weather Service will contact the Contractor when two 6-packs are empty, and request the pickup of the empty 6-packs and delivery of an identical number of full 6-packs of helium. The Contractor shall perform the pickup and delivery in the same trip and within two business days of being contacted. Actual helium usage and delivery frequency depends on how many cubic feet of helium are provided in each 6-pack, and also has the potential to vary if we have to launch extra balloons. But, at 1,200 CF per six-pack, and no extra launches, we will need deliveries roughly twice a month (between 4,500 CF and 5,000 CF used per month). Balloon launches occur twice a day, every day of the year, regardless of holidays. Therefore, the delivery schedule needs to be maintained regardless of holidays. If a holiday falls on a scheduled delivery day and the Contractor is not able to complete a regularly scheduled delivery, the Contractor shall make arrangements in advance for an alternate delivery date. The Contractor will contact the NWS office if a delivery is going to be delayed for any other reason. Performing Deliveries: For the initial delivery, the Contractor shall supply to the Place of Performance three 6-packs of helium, a minimum of 3,150 CF, in accordance with the coordinated date and time schedule. Thereafter, The National Weather Service will contact the Contractor when two 6-packs are empty, and request the pickup of the empty 6-packs and delivery of an identical number of full 6-packs of helium. The Contractor shall perform the pickup and delivery in the same trip and within two business days of being contacted. The Contractor shall contact NWS personnel at this location when arriving for a delivery. A loading and unloading area is available at this location such that a 6-pack can be rolled from a truck lift gate to its delivery point. The Contractor shall ensure the packs are securely strapped to the stand at delivery and placed in an orderly/neat and clean fashion. The Contractor shall perform the deliveries in such a manner that there will be minimal interruption to or interference with the normal operation of Government business on the premises. Evidence of Delivery: The Driver shall provide evidence of delivery by way of receipt signed by an NWS representative at the time of delivery. A copy of the signed receipt shall be left with the NWS representative, and a copy shall also be attached to the associated invoice when mailed. Compliance: If any of the deliveries do not conform to contract requirements (i.e. a delivery results in less than full replenishment of helium within the time specified), the Government reserves the right to require the Contractor to bring the delivery into conformity with contract requirements, at no increase in contract amount (i.e. without additional delivery charges). 7. SAFETY AND SECURITY All rules concerning safety, not smoking and the security of the property must be observed at all times. Materials Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) must be provided by the Contractor to the MIC or ASA at each office, where the information will be kept on file in accordance with applicable guidelines of the OSHA Hazard Communications Standard. Requirements pertaining to recordkeeping will be strictly followed, with copy(s) provided to MIC as necessary and upon request. 8. POINTS OF CONTACT The Government contacts at the NWS office in Las Vegas, NV are: Meteorologist In Charge Administrative Support Assistant Alternate 1 9.

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.

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.

(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.

(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.)

In performance of this contract the contractor will be required to properly identify, track and control property within its possession. This includes, a) property furnished by the government (GFP) to the contractor in conjunction with specific CLIN Items. These items and their values are listed in the specification, b) property that is pre-existing in a location that during the course of performance will be replaced or renewed. 2. The items listed in the specification, as government furnished property will be provided in the quantities designated. Government furnished property may be provided in person by an official Coast Guard employee, shipment via commercial carrier, etc. The contractor shall sign for all government furnished property using either a DD Form 1149, entitled, "Requisition and Invoice/Shipping Document" or a DD Form 1348, entitled, "Issue Release/Receipt Document".

If a firm-fixed price contract is awarded, and during the performance period a repair within scope is identified but the Contracting Officer and Contractor are unable to agree on the cost of the work, a bilateral modification may be incorporated into the contract using a Time and Materials modification for this specific repair. In this situation, FAR 52.212-4, Alternate I, will be incorporated.

These support functions are to be priced into the composite labor rate quoted and shall not be separately compensated. (c) The Quantity of Composite Labor hours indicated in the Schedule of Supplies/Services, is only an estimate and is an Optional Item pursuant to this solicitation. The Estimated Quantity represents the Government's best estimate of the total number of additional hours that may be required throughout the contract. The Government may elect to exceed this value at the prices stated in the schedule and its discretion during performance of the contract.

The Ombudsman Program for Agency Protests (OPAP) was established to investigate agency protest issues and resolve them without expensive and time-consuming litigation. OPAP is an independent reviewing authority that is empowered to grant a prevailing protester essentially the same relief as the General Accounting Office (GAO). Interested parties are encouraged to seek resolution of their concerns within the Coast Guard as an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) forum, rather filing a protest with the GAO or some external forum. Interested Parties may seek resolution of their concerns informally or opt to file a formal agency protest with the contracting officer or Ombudsman. INFORMAL FORUM WITH THE OMBUDSMAN: Interested parties who believe that a Coast Guard procurement is unfair or otherwise defective should first direct their concerns to the cognizant contracting officer. If the contracting officer is unable to satisfy the concerns, the interested party is encouraged to contact the coast Guard Ombudsman for Agency Protests. Under this informal process, the agency is not required to suspend contract award performance. Use of an informal forum does not suspend any time requirement for filing a protest with the agency or other forum. In order to ensure a timely response, interested parties should provide the following information to the Ombudsman: solicitation/contract number, contracting officer, and solicitation closing date (if applicable). FORMAL AGENCY PROTEST WITH THE OMBUDSMAN: Prior to submitting a formal agency protest, protesters must first use their best efforts to resolve their concerns with the contracting officer through open and frank discussions. If the protester's concerns are unresolved, an independent review is available by the Ombudsman. The protester may file a formal agency protest to either the contracting officer or as an alternative to that, the Ombudsman under the OPAP program. Contract award or performance will be suspended during the protest period unless contract award or performance is justified, in writing, for urgent and compelling reasons or is determined in writing to be in the best interest of the Government. The agency's goal is to resolve protests in less than 35 calendar days from the date of filing. Protests shall include the information set forth at FAR 33.103(d)(2). If the protester fails to submit the required information, resolution of the protest may be delayed or the protest may be dismissed. This will not preclude re-filing of the protests to meet the requirement. To be timely, protests must be filed within the period specified in FAR 33.103(e). Formal protests filed under the OPAP program should be forwarded to the address below: Commandant (GG-913)U.S. Coast Guard HeadquartersProcurement Planning & Oversight Division1900 Half Street, SW, JR11-0203Washington, DC 20593-0001Telephone: (202) 372-3692FAX: (202) 475-3904
