Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published March 30, 2015  -  Deadline March 31, 2017
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; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued.
The purpose of this modification, W911NF-12-R-0011-03, is to update Scientific Areas of Interests, Topic Point of Contact information and administrative maintenance of the BAA.
I.	OVERVIEW OF THE FUNDING OPPORTUNITY:
INTRODUCTION
This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), which sets forth research areas of interest to the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Directorates and Army Research Office (ARO), is issued under the paragraph 6.102(d)(2) of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which provides for the competitive selection of basic research proposals. Proposals submitted in response to this BAA and selected for award are considered to be the result of full and open competition and in full compliance with the provision of Public Law 98-369,  quote mark The Competition in Contracting Act of 1984 quote mark  and subsequent amendments.
Research proposals are sought from educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, and commercial organizations for research in materials sciences; ballistics and aeromechanics sciences; information sciences; human sciences; survivability, lethality, and vulnerability analysis and assessment; chemistry; electronics; physics; environmental sciences; life sciences; mechanical sciences, mathematical sciences, computing sciences and network sciences. Proposals will be evaluated only if they are for scientific study and experimentation directed
toward advancing the state of the art or increasing knowledge and understanding.
ARO has primary responsibility for ARL's extramural basic research programs, with specific research interests as described in Part II.A.2. The ARL Directorates, while having primary responsibility for ARL's in-house research programs, also manage select extramural basic research programs. The research interests of the Directorates are described in Part II.A.1. Although ARL Directorates will consider funding proposals for extramural research programs, they can fund only a modest number of proposals in a single fiscal year. It should be noted that
the ARL Directorates are highly interested in performing research in collaboration with other scientists and engineers. So, in addition to funding select external research projects, the ARL Directorates also have a strong interest in performing joint research with other organizations in ARL's core competency areas as described in this BAA. Collaboration is a central tenet of ARL's new Open Campus Initiative. Information regarding the Open Campus Initiative can be found on the ARL website (a summary at: http://www.arl.army.mil/www/default.cfm?page=2357 and details regarding specific opportunities at:
http://www.arl.army.mil/www/pages/2357/ARL_Open_Campus_Opportunities.pdf). Inquiries
regarding funding and/or collaborations should be directed to the listed Technical Point of Contact (TPOC).
Foreign owned, controlled, or influenced firms are advised that security restrictions may apply that could preclude their participation in these efforts. Before preparing a proposal, such firms are requested to contact the ARL Security and Counterintelligence Branch (301) 394-2444 concerning their eligibility. Pursuant to the policy of FAR 35.017 and supplements, selected Federally Funded Research and Development Centers may propose under this BAA. PART II, Other Programs, addresses specific contributions to Conferences and Symposia and
Historically Black Colleges & Universities and Minority-Serving Institutions (HBCU/MI)support.
The Army has a long history of advocating and supporting research at HBCU and MIs. We actively seek research proposals from HBCUs and MIs in full competition with all offerors who may submit proposals under this BAA. Proposals may be submitted at any time. We also encourage the inclusion of HBCUs and/or MIs as part of a consortium proposal or as subcontractors/ subgrantees to prime recipients.
In order to conserve valuable offeror and Government resources and to facilitate determining whether a proposed research idea meets the guidelines described herein, prospective offerors contemplating submission of a whitepaper or proposal are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate technical point of contact (TPOC) before submission. The TPOCs' names, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses are listed immediately after each research area of interest. If an offeror elects to submit a whitepaper, it must be prepared in accordance with the instructions
contained in PART III Section 3. Upon receipt, a whitepaper will be evaluated and the offeror shall be advised of the evaluation results. Offerors whose whitepapers receive a favorable evaluation may be contacted to prepare a complete proposal in accordance with instructions contained in PART III Section 5.
The costs of whitepapers and/or complete proposals in response to this BAA are not considered an allowable direct charge to any award resulting from this BAA or any other award. It may be an allowable expense to the normal bid and proposal indirect costs specified in FAR 31.205-18. In accordance with federal statutes, regulations, and Department of Defense and Army policies, no person on grounds of race, color, age, sex, national origin, or disability shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or
activity receiving financial assistance from the Army.
Offerors submitting proposals are cautioned that only a Contracting or Grants Officer may obligate the Government to any legal instrument involving expenditure of Government funds. This BAA also applies to research proposals submitted to the RDECOM International Technology Centers.
For ARL Directorate Research Areas II.A.1, offerors should discuss the preferred performance period with the Technical Point of Contact (TPOC). For ARO's Research Areas II.A.2, it is preferred that proposals are submitted to cover a 3-year period and include a brief summary of work contemplated for each 12-month period so that awards may be negotiated for an entire 3-year program or for individual 1-year increments of the total program.
All administrative inquires regarding this BAA shall be addressed to voice mailbox number 919-549-4375. Technical questions should be referred to the TPOCs shown following each research area of interest. When an inquiry is made, please clearly state your name, correct spelling, and telephone number.

Defense Forensic Science Center Broad Agency Announcement for Basic, Applied, and Advanced Research (Fiscal Years 2017-2021)

Department of the Army, Army Contracting Command | Published October 18, 2016  -  Deadline October 15, 2021
The Defense Forensic Science Center (DFSC) (formerly the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory (USACIL)) provides forensic laboratory services to DoD military criminal investigative organizations (Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and the Army Criminal Investigation Command) and other DoD customers. It is a full service forensic laboratory, providing state-of-the-art forensic examinations in the following disciplines:
• DNA/Serology• Digital Evidence• Drug Chemistry• Firearms and Toolmarks• Forensic Documents• Latent Prints (including footwear and tire track evidence)• Trace Evidence
The DFSC has three primary objectives:
(1) Analyze forensic evidence and provide expert testimony to support worldwide criminal investigation across all military services(2) Provide expeditionary and reach-back forensic services to U.S. military forces in active theaters of operation(3) Coordinate and execute research, development, testing and evaluation (RDT&E) projects to advance forensiccapabilities
The Department of Defense Forensic Research and Development Program ("Program") is administered by the U.S. Army Research Office and the Defense Forensic Science Center. The Program aims to enhance the capability of forensic science applications in traditional law enforcement/criminal justice purviews and in expeditionary environments. The Program accomplishes this mission by funding research projects that lead to the production of useful knowledge, materials, devices, systems, or methods that have forensic function.
To be eligible for an award under this announcement, a prospective awardee must meet certain minimum standards pertaining to financial resources and responsibility, ability to comply with the performance schedule, past performance, integrity, experience, technical capabilities, operational controls, and facilities. In accordance with Federal statutes, regulations, and Department of Defense and Army policies, no person on grounds of race, color, age, sex, national origin, or disability shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving financial assistance from the Army.
The Program is seeking proposals for funding to support forensic research and its application. The requested proposals should focus on adding to general forensic knowledge and/or DFSC activities and needs. Forensic research proposals should focus on the creation of new and improved field or laboratory functional capabilities that result in faster, more robust, more informative, less costly, or less labor-intensive recognition, preservation, collection, and/or analysis of forensic evidence. Proposals involving the development of equipment that is portable, sustainable, and useful in an expeditionary or field environment are also solicited. The expeditionary and field environments require systems that are lightweight, portable, inexpensive, fast, and capable of operating in extreme environments of temperature, dust, humidity, etc. The systems must also be capable of secure data communications.
Funding of research and development (R&D) within Program areas of interest will be determined by funding constraints and priorities set during each budget cycle. Due to Government budget uncertainties, no specific dollars have been reserved for awards under this BAA. Those contemplating submission of a proposal are encouraged to submit a white paper and quad chart, summarizing their proposed work. If the proposed R&D warrants further inquiry and funding is available, submission of a full technical and cost proposal will be encouraged. This sequence allows earliest determination of the potential for funding and minimizes the labor and cost associated with submission of full proposals that have minimal probability of being selected for funding. Costs associated with white paper, quad chart, or full proposal submissions in response to this BAA are not considered allowable direct charges to any resulting award. These costs may be allowable expenses to normal bid and proposal indirect costs specified in FAR 31.205-18 for contracts. Offerors submitting proposals are cautioned that only a Government Contracting or Grants Officer may obligate the Government to any agreement involving expenditure of Government funds.
