This is Amendment #4 to the Request For Proposal (RFP) entitled Support for Atmospheric Sciences, Modeling, and Data Assimilation II (SAMDA II), Solicitation 80GSFCR0021. The purpose of this Amendment is to extend the RFP by an additional 30 days with proposals due on October 28, 2021.



You are invited to submit a proposal in response to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Goddard Space Flight Center’s (GSFC) Support for Atmospheric Sciences, Modeling and Data Assimilation II (SAMDA II) solicitation. The principal purpose of this requirement is to provide research conducted by GSFC scientists in the Earth Science Division (Code 610). The contract will support the full range of research and development activities of the Earth Sciences Division-Atmospheres (Code 610AT) and the Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO, Code 610.1).



NASA will conduct this acquisition as a small business set-aside, competition. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this acquisition is 541715. The small business size standard is 1000 of employees.



This competitive acquisition will result in a Cost-Plus-Fixed Fee (CPFF), Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ. The contract will have an effective ordering period of 5 years from the contract effective date.



If discussions are needed, the anticipated contract award date is June 15, 2022 with an August 01, 2022 contract effective date. The contract will be performed: onsite at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and offsite at the Contractor’s facilities.



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. A 45 day Phase-in period will be conducted. Phase-In will be conducted, under a separate contract vehicle, during the 45-day period prior to the effective date of the contract.



2. 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.



3. NASA has determined that this acquisition may give rise to a potential organizational conflict of interest (OCI). Offerors should also refer to clause L.11 GSFC 52.209-301 Notice of Potential Organizational Conflicts of Interest for OCI plan instructions. The attention of prospective Offerors is invited to FAR Subpart 9.5 --Organizational Conflicts of Interest. The Contracting Officer (CO) shall not award a contract until NASA determines any OCI is reasonably resolved. The proposed OCI Plan shall be consistent with all other areas of the proposal. Material inconsistencies between the OCI Plan and other proposal areas may render the proposal invalid, resulting in an unacceptable proposal that is ineligible for award.

Offerors should review the RFP in its entirety, as its content has changed from the Draft RFP version.
