The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)/Goddard Space Flight Center ( GSFC ) plans to issue a Request for Proposal ( RFP ) for the Space Exploration Networks Services and Evolution (SENSE) procurement. This procurement will support continuous operations, maintenance, and sustainment of the relay and direct-to-earth networks and their evolution toward a future architectural vision. More specifically, SENSE requirements will include: systems architecture and engineering; development; integration and test; operations; maintenance; and, sustaining services for space and ground systems and facilities which include the NASAs Space Network, Near Earth Network, Satellite Laser Ranging Network, Very Long Baseline Interferometry Network, and Electronic Systems Test Laboratory.

Flight operations and sustaining services will be required for NASAs Tracking and Data Relay Satellites. System architecture, system engineering, and development services will need to evolve NASAs networks to efficiently and effectively provide innovative space communications and navigation solutions to enable new science and exploration. Additionally, electromagnetic spectrum management, communications link analyses, and networking loading assessments will be required to integrate network services for new customer missions.

This is a modification to the synopsis entitled Space Exploration Networks Services and Evolution (SENSE). You are notified that the Final RFP is further delayed until early to mid-October. Additionally, potential Offerors are also advised of the following:


FAR 9.5 generally addresses Organizational Conflicts of Interest (OCI). To assist NASA in identifying and resolving conflicts of interest, Offerors are encouraged to perform a thorough analysis of possible OCIs that may arise as a result of its participation in the SENSE procurement and during contract performance. Specific OCI-related considerations of concern to NASA include:


-Preventing the existence of conflicting roles that might bias a contractors judgment (impaired objectivity OCI);


-Preventing unfair competitive advantage that might arise as a result of unequal access to information such as non-public competitively useful information, proprietary information of another contractor, or Source Selection Information (unequal access to information);


-Avoiding or mitigating the appearance of a conflict of interest per FAR 3.101-1 where a contractor hires a former government employee having access to such information; and


-Ensuring that a company is not in a position to affect a procurement competition, whether unintentionally or not, in its favor by drafting the specifications or statements of work (biased ground rules OCI); and


Offerors are encouraged to review the NASA OCI Guide located at: https://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/procurement/OCIGuide.pdf


An OCI or appearance of a conflict of interest may render that Offeror ineligible for award of the SENSE contract, unless the Offeror is able to propose an approach that avoids, neutralizes, or satisfactorily mitigates the OCI.


Offerors are encouraged to provide a detailed analysis of the each of the above OCI concerns listed above for itself and its teammates/subcontractors. Offerors should consider, among other things: any interrelationship between SENSE and other NASA contracts it currently holds as a prime or subcontractor (or will compete for); whether it has access to nonpublic competitively useful information, or proprietary information of other contractors, and if so, whether firewalls and other protections (e.g., non-disclosure agreements) are (and were) in place to protect such information; and whether it has hired former government employees having had access to such information that are involved in the SENSE procurement.


For each OCI concern identified, the Offeror is encouraged to submit its avoidance, neutralization and/or mitigation strategies. Offerors should submit this analysis and its OCI strategies (not exceeding 12 pages) via e-mail to the Contracting Officer by September 5, 2017. The goal is to provide proactive feedback on OCI-related issues before the issuance of the Final Request for Proposal. This is optional and Offerors will not be considered ineligible for award solely because the Offeror declines to participate.


NASA Clause 1852.215-84, Ombudsman, is applicable. The Center Ombudsman for this acquisition can be found at http://prod.nais.nasa.gov/pub/pub_library/Omb.html .


The final solicitation and any documents related to this procurement will be available over the Internet. These documents will reside on a World-Wide Web (WWW) server, which may be accessed using a WWW browser application. The Internet site, or URL, for the NASA Business Opportunities page is http://procurement.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/EPS/bizops.cgi?gr=D&pin =.


It is the offeror's responsibility to monitor the Internet site for the release of the solicitation and amendments (if any). Potential offerors will be responsible for downloading their own copy of the solicitation and amendments (if any).
