This is a notice of intent to increase the ceiling of Contract N66001-14-C-4016 to Wake Forest University Health Sciences, awarded by SSC Pacific on behalf of

the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency Defense Sciences Office

(DARPA/DSO) on 31 January 2014 . This effort extrapolated the achievements of

the REMIND program to circumstances that facilitated application of the memory

prosthesis device developed for nonhuman primates (NHPs), to human patients

undergoing surgery for brain disease conditions such as epilepsy in order to

restore retention of item specific information necessary for cognitive

function. The Wake Forest team has demonstrated for the first time that a

direct neural interface could be used to write in specific neural codes into

the brain to facilitate memory formation and recall in human subjects. This

groundbreaking discovery is advancing DARPAs neurotechnology portfolio in

support of former President Obamas BRAIN Initiative. This effort seeks to

additional tasking to extend testing of Sparse Multi-Input, Multi-Output (MIMO)

Model to additional epilepsy patients identified as having a history of

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Repeated Moderate Brain Injury (RMBI) for

increased insight into applicability for Service members with TBI.

The NAICS code for this procurement is 541712. Due to the nature of Research

and Development efforts, DARPA could not have reasonably estimated the results

of the research from this program, which has seen breakthroughs that will

benefit from continued research under this current contract. This action

includes a ceiling increase of approximately $991,732 and extends the period of

performance through 7/30/2020. This notice of intent is not a request for

competitive proposals or quotes and will be posted for 15 days. A determination

by the Government not to compete based upon response to this notice is solely

within the discretion of the Government. Interested parties may submit comments

in writing to the Contract Officer, Mrs. Lynn Biedermann, Code 22720, SPAWAR

Systems Center Pacific who may be reached by telephone at (619) 553-4479 or via
