Description

***************PLEASE CONTACT MARY BRINKEY ONLY FOR TECHNICAL OR QUOTE ISSUES. MARY BRINKEY CONTACT INFORMATION IS IN THE BODY OF THIS SOLICITATION*****************

NASA/MSFC has a requirement for LIQUID METHANE. Methane will be needed for at least the next two months and as long as up to one year.

NASA/MSFC intends to purchase the liquid methane from Clean Energy Fuels Corp. on a sole source basis. The award of a new contract will seriously impact the ability of MSFC to meet its obligations to its customers. Also, Clean Energy Fuel Corp. is aware of the hazardous safety concerns as a propellent delivery provider at MSFC and another provider would need instruction and this would cause further delay in delivery of methane. 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 [email protected], or fax to 256 544-4401 no later than 4:30 p.m. local time on October 31, 2007. 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”.
