Contracting Office Address

NASA/Ames Research Center, JA:M/S 241-1, Moffett Field, CA 94035-1000


NASA/ARC intends to extend contract NAS2-02090 with Lockheed on a sole-source basis pursuant to 10 U.S.C 2304(c)(1), Only One Responsible Source. The performance period will be extended for a potential twelve month period, consisting of a six month base period, and six one-month options.

The principle purpose of this contract is to support science, space, exploration efforts through discrete programs and projects. At NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) the Programs and Projects Directorate conducts and manages programs, projects, develops and executes missions. Support requirements span multiple Directorates at ARC, other NASA Centers and NASA Headquarters. In order for the various Directorates to develop, manage, and execute programs within its mission area, research and development is required in the areas of Program Management, Project Management, Program Support, Collaborative Technologies, Engineering, Hardware and Software Systems Engineering and Educational Outreach.

The extension will extend the period of performance of the current contract, NAS2-02090, for six (6) months, from June 1, 2011 through November 30, 2011 for the base period; and end on May 31, 2012 if all six one-month options are exercised. The extension will increase the current contract value. The extension is the Government’s best interest to provide ongoing Programs and Projects services until a new contract is awarded. The current Contractor, Lockheed is considered the only Contractor that can meet ARC’s needs given the short period of performance for the extension. Awarding the potential twelve month contract to another Contractor at the same time the recompete is in the process would result in substantial duplication of cost to the Government that is not expected to be recovered through competition of the extension as well as unacceptable delays in fulfilling ARC’s critical requirements.

The Government does not intend 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 4:30pm local time on Monday, March 7, 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.

An Ombudsman has been appointed. See NASA Specific Note “B”.
