NASA Manufacturing Technology Transfer Center, Request for Information (RFI)

The Eastern NASA Manufacturing Technology Transfer Center (E-NMTTC) provides training for GSFC and non-GSFC personnel on Workmanship Standards. Honeywell Technology Solutions Inc., a subcontractor to ManTech International, operates the training Center. The E-NMTTC offers the Workmanship and ESD Control certification classes for NASA required standards, which are defined in NPD 8730.5. As new standards are added to NPD 8730.5, new classes must be developed and offered by the E-NMTTC. The E-NMTTC also provides informational courses where there is a recurring GSFC need as well as certification-level courses which are GSFC Center-specific. Though certification-level training is taken biennially, historical data has shown that student/course volume is consistent year-to-year as follows:

NASA Goddard is soliciting information from industry on the Eastern NASA Manufacturing Technology Transfer Center (E-NMTTC). The purpose of this solicitation is to gather information to decide if the E-MMTTC should be a separate contract from the Safety and Mission Assurance Services follow-on contract. In your response, please address how you propose that the training center be set-up as a separate contract, and the positives, negatives and the risks of separating the two. The Government will use the information provided as recommendations that will lead the Government to develop a comprehensive procurement strategy. Any information used will be on a non-attribution basis. Restrictions that would limit the Government’s ability to use the information for these purposes are of limited value to the Government and are discouraged.

This RFI is for information and planning purposes and is not to be construed as a commitment by the Government nor will the Government pay for information solicited. Respondents will not receive feedback on the information obtained through this RFI process.

RFI Responses must be directed to the point of contact listed below and submitted no later than September 10, 2010. Responses should be submitted via e-mail.
