cpvs

NASA/GSFC has a requrement to procure the addition of a support order capability for contract NNG05HY16C with the Assurnce Technology Corporation (ATC) for instrument support for the Space Environment Monitor-2 (SEM-2)Instrument for the MetOP-C mission. NNG05HY16C was awarded on May 5, 2005 with a period of performance that ends on April 30, 2017. NASA is planning to add a support order capability to the SEM-2 support contract for quick reaction support in the dynamic MetOp-C launch environment. This will provide a more timely ATC contractual and technical response to any SEM-2 Instrument technical requirements or issues that may arise in pereparation for the MetOp-C launch. A quick reaction support order capability is required for several reasons including the need to provide real time disposition of SEM issues and problems and not impact or delay the schedule of the international MetOp-C mission. The statutory authority for other than full and open competition is 10 U. S. C. 2304 (c) 1 Only One Responsible Source. NASA/GSFC intends to purchase the items from the Assurance Technology Corporation that is located in Carlisle, MA. ATC has been responsible for supporting the SEM-2 instrurments, Ground Support Equipment (GSE) testing and calibration, bench checkout and repair of equipment for more than 10 years.

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. Funded jurisdictions will be selected through a merit-based, peer-review competition. The following are the specific objectives of NASA EPSCoR: Contribute to and promote the development of research capability in NASA EPSCoR jurisdictions in areas of strategic importance to the NASA mission; Improve the capabilities of the NASA EPSCoR jurisdictions to gain support from sources outside the NASA EPSCoR program; Develop partnerships among NASA research assets, academic institutions, and industry; Contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and economic development of the jurisdiction; and Work in close coordination with the Space Grant consortium in the jurisdiction to improve the environment for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. While proposals can be accepted only from institutions for which the NASA EPSCoR Directors are currently serving, all institutions of higher education within the jurisdiction should be given the opportunity and be made aware of the FY 2015 NASA EPSCoR CAN. The National Science Foundation (NSF) determines overall jurisdiction eligibility for NASA EPSCoR. Details regarding general eligibility are available at: http://www.nsf.gov/od/oia/p rograms/epscor/eligible.jsp . The following jurisdictions are eligible to submit one proposal to this NASA EPSCoR solicitation: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming. Agency Name NASA Headquarters Description The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Office of Education, in cooperation with NASAs Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD), Human Exploration & Operations Mission Directorate (HEOMD), Science Mission Directorates (SMD), the Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD), and NASAs ten centers, solicits proposals for the NASA Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). Each funded NASA EPSCoR proposal is expected to establish research activities that will make significant contributions to NASAs strategic research and technology development priorities and contribute to the overall research infrastructure, science and technology capabilities, higher education, and economic development of the jurisdiction. The program parameters are: NASA EPSCoR Jurisdictions responding to this Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) may submit one (See EPSCoR Eligibility and Proposal Acceptance section of the solicitation). The maximum funding request per proposal is $375,000. This amount is to be expended at a rate of $125,000 per year over a three-year period. Hawaii and South Carolina may submit proposals of up to $150,000 (over a 3-year period) to cover their alignment with Guam and the US Virgin Islands. All NASA EPSCoR monies must be cost-shared at a level of at least 100% with non-federal monies. In-kind cost-sharing is allowable. This CAN is available in electronic form through the NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) and through Grants.gov.
