(2) VOLUME II - COST/FUNDING PROPOSAL. Cost/funding proposals are not restricted in length and have no specific page layout requirements, but should address funding by periods of performance. Formal work breakdown structures (WBS) and certified cost or pricing data are neither required nor desired. However, NAWCAD reserves the right to request this information. Organize the Cost/Funding proposals to include four (4) sections in the following order: Section 1 - Total Project Cost: Provide a summary spreadsheet (sample of recommended format will be provided) outlining the total cost by project, including labor, material, and travel for each project proposed and a total cost for the entire proposal. In addition, provide a detailed breakdown of costs of the project. Costs shall be broken down for each task appearing in the Statement of Work (SOW) and shall include all of the proposed costs to the Government and cost shared by the offeror. Present the following information for each phase of the effort: • Total cost of the particular project phase;• Total offeror cost share;• Funding requested from the Government; and• Elements of cost (labor, direct materials, travel, other direct costs, equipment, software, patents, royalties, indirect costs, escalation, and cost of money). Sufficient information shall be provided in supporting documents to allow the Government to evaluate the reasonableness of these proposed costs, including salaries, overhead, equipment purchases, fair market rental value of leased items, and the method used for making such valuations. Documents shall include the most recent ONR Rate Negotiation Agreement and/or DCAA Forward Pricing Rate Agreements, payroll verification, three years of historical actual indirect rates, and invoices or quotes for material purchases. Profit shall not be proposed in accordance with DODGARS 34.18 "Fee and Profit." Section 2 - Cost Sharing and In-Kind Contributions: This section shall include: (i) the sources of cash and amounts to be used for matching requirements; (ii) the specific in-kind contributions proposed, their value in monetary terms, and the methods by which their values were derived; and (iii) evidence of the existence of adequate cash or commitments to provide sufficient cash in the future. Affirmative, signed statements are required from outside sources of cash. Provide sufficient information regarding the sources of the offeror's cost share so that a determination may be made by the Government regarding the availability, timeliness, and control of these resources. For example: How will the funds and resources be applied to advance the progress of the proposed effort? What is the role of any proposed in-kind contribution? Section 3 - Cost to the Government: This section shall specify the total costs proposed to be borne by the Government and any technical or other assistance including equipment, facilities, and personnel of Federal laboratories, if any, required to support these activities. The cost to the Government should be that portion of the proposed effort, which is not covered, by the contractor's portion of the cost share. The costs incurred and work performed by any DoD or national laboratory "partnering" with the offeror under the proposal shall normally be considered costs of the Government and not costs of the offeror for purposes of the cost-sharing requirement. Present sufficient information regarding the resources to be provided by the Government so that an evaluation of their availability, timeliness, and control may be made. Section 4 - Off-Budget Supporting Resources: This section shall show cash or in-kind resources which will support the proposed activity but which are not intended to be included in the total project cost. Items in this category do not count as cost share or as Federal funds, which must be matched. Examples of items to place in this category include commitments of cash or in-kind resources from other Federal sources, such as national laboratories, and projections of fee-based income where there is substantial uncertainty about the level which will actually be collected and where the income is not needed to meet cost-share requirements. 5. EVALUATION CRITERIA The Government will evaluate proposals responsive to any or all of the areas of interest discussed herein. Proposals will not be evaluated against each other. 5.1 EVALUATION CRITERIA The primary evaluation criteria are: a) Scientific and technical merits of the proposed research to include, (1) the degree to which the proposed research and development objectives support the targeted technical topic and (2) validity of the technical basis for the approach offered.b) The offeror's capabilities, related experience, past performance on similar efforts, research investigators/personnel, facilities, location, techniques, or unique combination of these, which are integral factors for achieving the proposal objectives.c) The realism and reasonableness of cost, including proposed cost sharing.6. AWARDS NAWCAD intends to award Cooperative Agreements, however, NAWCAD will consider various types of acquisition vehicles including but not limited to traditional FAR/DFARS type contracts or other non-procurement agreements. NAWCAD is planning to make one or more awards within the overall objectives stated in this BAA. All awards will be based on the individual merit of the proposal. The Government reserves the right to select all, some, or none of the proposals received in response to this announcement. Any awards are subject to the availability of appropriations. There is no commitment by the Navy to be responsible for any monies expended by the offeror before award of a contract/agreement. For awards made as contracts, the socio-economic merits of each proposal will be evaluated based on the commitment to provide meaningful subcontracting opportunities with small business programs. These efforts shall be conducted primarily at the agreement holder's site but NAWCAD facilities may also be available and/or used depending on project needs. Access and use of NAWCAD facilities will require security clearances and US citizenship. NOTE: Typically, research findings result in the need for additional services/supplies, which are not possible to anticipate or project. Modifications to the agreement may be executed to satisfy these requirements; thereby providing for flexibility in technology assessment (with technology transition the ultimate goal). In the event that this is required, it shall be considered to be within the scope of this BAA and the resulting agreement, and therefore will have met the requirements of the Department of Defense Grant and Agreement Regulations (DODGARS).

The objective is to acquire an aquatic center membership that will enable US Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue Swimmers to maintain physical fitness and training requirements which includes mandatory one day per week conditioning in a 25 meter or 25 yard pool. 2.0 BACKGROUNDThe Coast Guard Air Station is located on the west bank in Belle Chasse on NASJRB at 400 Russell Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70143. There is not an adequate facility located on NASJRB available for weekly training session and unit training in the early and late fall.3.0 TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTSMembership Requirements: Air Station New Orleans has 14 rescue swimmers. Access to the pool is needed twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday) for 90 minutes to facilitate every swimmer meeting the requirement of completing the pool training session one time per week with operational duty and the normal flight schedule factored in. The pool must also be able to accept 5 training sessions for all air station pilots and aircrew to complete required training throughout the year.Facility Requirements: The pool facility must be at least 25 yards with a depth of at least 8 feet. If the pool facility is indoors, it is not required to be heated. If the pool is outdoors, it must be heated. The pool must be able to accommodate rescue swimmer gear & equipment including a rescue litter, parachute and a Shallow Water Egress Chair (SWET). The SWET chair is a 6' x 4' cage that is placed in the water to simulate a helicopter crash. The aquatic facility must have doors large enough to move the SWET chair through.Parking Requirements: The facility must have adequate parking in close proximity of the street due to the size and amount of gear needed for wet drills, shallow water egress, and water survival training.Period of Performance: Base Year: 10/1/2016 - 9/30/2017Option Year One: 10/1/2017 - 9/30/2018 (if exercised by the Government)Option Year Two: 10/1/2018 - 9/30/2019 (if exercised by the Government)Option Year Three: 10/1/2019 - 9/30/2020 (if exercised by the Government)Option Year Four: 10/1/2020 - 9/30/2021 (if exercised by the Government) Place of Performance: Contractor's FacilityCLAUSESThe full text of FAR clauses may be accessed electronically at: http://www.acquisition.gov/far/The full text of HSAR clauses may be accessed electronically at: http://farsite.hill.af.mil/VFHSARA.HTMThe following contract clauses apply to this acquisition:1.

The firm is welcome to make copies at the engineering office of any documents and drawings. The engineering section will transfer any electronic documents to a FTP type site the AE has set up. Many times drawing files are too large to transfer via email. It is the intent of the Department of Veterans Affairs to have the A-E survey the existing conditions and not rely solely on old background drawings for their design. The VA makes no guarantee to the accuracy of background drawings, as most of the drawings are copies of original construction drawings and not "As Built" in nature. The VA does complete regular asbestos and lead assessments and believes these to be accurate. The AE will have full access to these surveys. Note: A/E shall be responsible for conducting site visits for the purpose of data gathering, investigation and documentation of all existing conditions. Perform such investigations as required to accurately verify all existing conditions. Do not rely solely upon "as built" drawings. VA personnel will provide assistance with investigating the project site where prior experience with equipment and utilities will produce an appreciable advantage. In accordance with FAR 36.204, the estimated magnitude of the resulting construction price range is estimated to be between $2,000,000 and $5,000,000.
