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. Sec. 6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms.

Cloud-Based Drupal Hosting Environment and Operations Support

Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) | Published August 22, 2014  -  Deadline September 5, 2014
cpvs

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), intends to negotiate, on a sole source basis, under authority of FAR 6.302-1, with Acquia, BURLINGTON, MA, to provide Cloud-Based Drupal Hosting Environment and Operations Support. Sole Source determination is based on the following: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) approved the plan to migrate its public facing website, www.nist.gov, to Drupal utilizing a cloud-based platform. In order to perform its online communications mission more effectively, the project focuses on building a content rich NIST public facing website which provides a simplified and more user-friendly approach for existing and new users. It is imperative that NIST utilizes its public facing web site as a platform for communicating new research developments, public-private collaboration, recent news, and other industry specific information. In the past year, NIST initiated an internal Drupal Web Content Management (WCM) pilot project to acquire the necessary experience and to identify the requirements needed to migrate the NIST public facing website to a Cloud-based Drupal Platform as a Service. In order to prepare the to-be developed public facing website for the production deployment, NIST seeks to acquire a contractor to provide a cloud-based Drupal hosting environment and operations support. Acquia is a commercial open source software company based in US providing products, services, and technical support for the open source Drupal framework. It provides a Drupal Platform as a Service (PaaS) in the Cloud with an optimized LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL/MariaDB, and PHP) stack. Acquia manages all 10 layers of the PaaS model. Acquia manages every aspect of the stack, from front-end load balancers to wbe servers, databases, filesystems, and storage. Acquia is the only company that received a second Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) Authorization to Operate (ATO) for federal customers using Acquia Cloud. It is the first provider to offer enterprise Drupal cloud services with a FISMA moderate ATO. Acquia included FedRAMP controls in its FISMA documentation. Acquia is currently in the process of receiving a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorization for providing its Drupal Cloud hosting services. Acquia is officially in the FedRAMP "on-process board" (on Ramp). SSP submitted to DoT (FedRAMP's sponsoring agency to submit an offering for FedRAMP authorization) and hired a Third Party Assessment Organization (3PAO) to create and submit an authorization package and to perform an assessment of the system. In addition, Acquia Cloud is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and utilizes Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). The Amazon EC2 has received a FedRAMP authorization. Acquia is the only company to offer a fully managed, FISMA Moderate and DIACAP compliant "Drupal Platform as a Service" in the Cloud and is therefore the only company that can meet the Government's minimum requirements. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 518210, and the size standard is $32.5M. No solicitation package will be issued. This notice of intent is not a request for competitive quotations; however, the Government will consider responses received by 5 September 2014, 3pm EDT. A determination by the Government not to compete the proposed acquisition based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. Information received will normally be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement.

Sole Source - Molecular Operating Environment (MOE)

Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Acquisition Management | Published April 23, 2015  -  Deadline April 30, 2015
cpvs

In accordance with FAR 13.106-1(b)(1), the National Computer Center (NCC) Office of Technology Operations and Planning (OTOP), Hosting and Storage Solutions Branch at EPA Research Triangle Park, intends to award a sole source firm fixed-price purchase order to Chemical Computing Group (CCG), Molecular Operating Environment (MOE) software and three additional (3) tokens to meet modeling requirements in support of EPA researchers. The three tokens under this license will be used within the Center for Environmental Computing (CEC), National Computer Center (NCC), Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. MOE is proprietary software of the CCG, and as such, CCG is the sole source for licensing and maintenance. To maintain continuity of operations and to avoid converting to un-tested, un-validated molecular modeling application, it is necessary to purchase an annual license lease for MOE. Additionally, using any other molecular modeling application would require: Running all existing models using the new application and then validating these models against the MOE output result. Testing the results using existing post processing tools or purchase different post processing tools. Annotating all published documents which use MOE output. This would result in contractor costs, potentially other licensing costs, and a large loss of productivity of EPA scientists and researchers. This product has been used by EPA researchers for at least seven years, and is required for continuity in molecular modeling. The projects requiring MOE are essential mission projects including QSPR, which is modeling prediction of reactivity/removal of organic chemicals in drinking water. NO SOLICITATION OR REQUEST FOR QUOTE (RFQ) IS AVAILABLE. Notwithstanding, any firm that believes it is capable of meeting EPA's requirement as stated herein may submit a capability statement by the response date indicated above. Timely responses will be considered. Responses to this posting must be in writing and provide clear and convincing evidence that competition would be advantageous to the Government. A determination not to compete the proposed purchase order based upon the responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. All questions should be directed to Christopher Davis via the e-mail link below; telephone calls will not be accepted. The point of contact for this requirement is Christopher Davis, Contracting Officer, at davis.christopher@epa.gov.
