Description

You are invited to submit a proposal in response to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Langley’s Dragonfly Parachute Decelerator Subsystem (PDS) solicitation. The principal purpose of this requirement is to provide the design, fabrication and delivery and data associated with the PDS.



NASA will conduct this acquisition as a full and open competition. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 541715 and the small business size standard is 1,000.



This competitive acquisition will result in a Cost-Plus-Fixed Fee (CPFF) contract. The contract will have a total potential period of performance of four and one half years (4.5) years. The anticipated contract award date is 11 February 2022 with a 14 February 2022 contract effective date. The contract will be performed primarily offsite at the Contractor’s facilities; however

onsite access to NASA Langley, Johnson and Ames may be required.



Potential offerors should pay close attention to all solicitation instructions; however, the following requirements list is summarized to assist in proposal development. Please note that this list is not exhaustive, and the solicitation terms and conditions and provisions in sections L and M take precedence:



1. The Government will make available existing Installation-Accountable Government Property (IAGP) for onsite contract performance [and Government Furnished Property (GFP) for offsite use at the Contractor’s facility as described in the RFP].



2. NASA has determined that this acquisition may give rise to a potential organizational conflict of interest (OCI). Offerors should refer to clause H.8 57.227-96, Organizational and Personal Conflicts of Interest, as well as Attachments 4 and 5 for instructions relating to OCI. Additionally, this solicitation includes NASA clause 1852.237-72 Access to Sensitive Information

and 1852.237-73, Release of Sensitive information relating to OCIs.



3. NASA Langley appreciates the comments received in response to the release of the Draft RFP. These comments resulted in improvements to the quality and content of the overall RFP. Offerors should review the RFP in its entirety, as its content has changed from the Draft RFP version.



4. Be advised, in accordance with provision L.20(f) Offerors need to encourage their references to submit their Past Performance Questionnaires directly to the Contracting Officer prior to proposal due date.



5. Offerors are required to have a Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code that matches the corporate address submitted with its proposal.



Offerors are encouraged to refer to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) provision 52.215-1, INSTRUCTIONS TO OFFERORS–COMPETITIVE ACQUISITION, in particular paragraph (f)(4) which discusses the Government’s right to award a contract without discussions.



In order to control and protect sensitive data owned by the Government and its Contractors, NASA policy required all acquisition-related documents be released in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), excluding the RFP’s Attachment 1-Cost Forms. The Offeror’s Cost or Price Proposal Volume shall include completed exhibits in Microsoft Office Excel format with working cell formulas.
