NASA/LaRC has a requirement to characterize the residual stresses on an Al-Li alloy ET stringer.

NASA/LaRC intends to purchase the items from Proto Manufacturing. Proto Manufacturing is the designer and manufacturer of their own equipment which allows them to have expertise readily available. It would take substantial duplication of resources and time for another source to provide a similar service, and this additional expense is not expected to be recovered through competition.

The Government intends to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12.

Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 2:30 p.m. local time on 01/13/2011. Such capabilities/qualifications will be evaluated solely for the purpose of determining whether or not to conduct this procurement on a competitive basis. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the government.

Oral communications are not acceptable in response to this notice.

All responsible sources may submit an offer which shall be considered by the agency.

NASA Clause 1852.215-84, Ombudsman, is applicable. The installation Ombudsman is LaRC: Cynthia C. Lee. Direct Inquiries to: Panice H. Clark (757)864-2522.
