DESC: This notice corrects the previously issued notice for the
NASA/GSFC Program Control and Analysis acquisition. The previous
notice stated that the successful contractor’s reponsibilities
include managing spacecraft flight hardware systems, ground
systems, launch vehicles, and research instrumentation payloads
and encompasses all phases of project implementation from conceptual
studies through definition, design and development, fabrication,
integration, launch, preparation for pre and post-launch operations,
satellite servicing, data acquisition, processing, distribution,
analysis, and archiving. These activities should have been
stated as responsibilities of NASA/GSFC and that the successful
contractor will support these NASA/GSFC project activities
by providing services to include contract management, management
information systems, configuration management, scheduling and
planning, documentation/library support, accounting and general
business in support of the planning, managing, and executing
of flight activity in the Flight Programs and Projects Directorate
and supporting directorates. The following restates the previous
notice with the above noted correction. NASA/GSFC plans to
issue a draft Request for Proposal (DRFP) via the internet,
on or about October 12, 2001 for Program Analysis and Control
support to the Flight Programs and Projects Directorate at
the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, located in Greenbelt,
Maryland. The DRFP is being released incrementally.

At this
time the Government is inviting comment on the draft Statement
of Work (DSOW). All draft portions of the RFP, including the
SOW, are subject to changes during the solicitation development.
Additional incremental releases of the DRFP will be posted
on the NASA Acquisition Internet Service (NAIS) as they become
available. Interested parties are requested to identify any
inefficient or unnecessary requirements, and comment on any
perceived safety, occupational health, security (including
information technology security), environmental, export control,
and/or other programmatic risk issues associated with performance
of the work. After careful consideration of all comments, questions
and suggestions received, changes will be made to the DRFP
where deemed appropriate and a final RFP will be issued. The
Goddard Space Flight Center has the responsibility for planning
and managing spacecraft flight hardware systems, ground systems,
launch vehicles, and research instrumentation payloads.

This
responsibility encompasses all phases of project implementation
from conceptual studies through definition, design and development,
fabrication, integration, launch, preparation for pre and post-launch
operations, satellite servicing, data acquisition, processing,
distribution, analysis, and archiving. To develop and manage
projects (present and future) and to respond to its assigned
responsibilities, the GSFC requires contractor services to
include contract management, management information systems,
configuration management, scheduling and planning, documentation/library
support, accounting and general business in support of the
planning, managing, and executing of flight activity in the
Flight Programs and Projects Directorate and supporting directorates.
This requirement has been set-aside for firms under the 8(a)
business program. The anticipated period of performance will
be five years. This will be a performance based contract. The
NAICS Code and Size Standard are 561110 and $5,000,000 respectively.
The DPAS rating for this procurement is DO-C9. This document
is for information and planning purposes and to allow industry
the opportunity to verify reasonableness and feasibility of
the requirement, as well as promote competition. The DRFP is
not a solicitation for proposals. Do not submit a proposal
at this time. Prospective offerors are invited to submit comments
or questions to: Klaus D. Sexton at [email protected]

This solicitation/synopsis is not to be construed as a commitment
by the Government, nor will the Government pay for the information
solicited. Respondents will not be notified of the results
of the review. Any questions regarding this announcement should
be directed to the identified point of contact.

The Government
intends to issue a complete draft RFP for industry comment
and questions on or about November 15, 2001. Comments will
be due 15 days following the release of the complete DRFP.
The final RFP will be issued on or about January 20, 2002.
An ombudsman has been appointed — See NASA Specific Note “B”.
The solicitation and any documents related to this procurement
will be available over the Internet.

These documents will be
in Microsoft Office 2000 format and 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/GSFC Business
Opportunities home page is http://genesis.gsfc.NASA.gov/nasanote.html
A CBD notice will be posted prior to release of the Final RFP.
It is the offeror’s responsibility to monitor the Internet
site for the release of the final solicitation and amendments
(if any).
