DESC: NASA/LaRC plans to issue a Request for Quotation (RFQ)
for Mach 7.6 Scramjet Flight Data and Data Analysis to include
raw and best estimated trajectory data, weather data for days
of flight, all scramjet engine flowpath data, all fuel system
data, accurate scramjet flowpath definition drawings or CAD
models, and accurate instrumentation layouts. The contractor
shall provide a report detailing the analysis of data from
both flights, including trajectroy, scramjet performance, comparison
with previously collected ground test data, and explanation
for any differences noted between ground and flight data. This
procurement is being conducted under the Simplified Acquisition
Procedures (SAP).

NASA/LaRC intends to purchase the items from
The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia who is the
only responsible source and no other supplies or services will
satisfy Agency requirements. The University of Queensland is
the only organization that can provide NASA with near-term
scramjet flight test data and analysis and provide direct comparisons
with the data from tests in a short duration pulse facility
for validation of that ground test technique. The Government
does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part
12. See Note 26.

Interested organizations may submit their
capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing
to the identified point of contact not later than 4:30 p.m.
local time on September 11, 2001. 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. An Ombudsman has been appointed.
