NASA/GSFC has a requirement for services to support our Scientific Visualization Studio (SVS). SVS is a project that produces visualization products, systems, and processes that support NASA’s scientific missions and research activities. Almost all activities of this project involve the visualization of scientific data derived from remote sensing satellites, computational modeling or research analysis. Some of the specific work elements within the above area are described as follows: Create visualization products such as animations and images of Earth and space-based scientific data that convey the physical principles, research goals, mission objectives, engineering processes, and scientific discoveries associated with NASA and NASA-supported scientific endeavors. Develop visualization systems to enable personnel both internal and external to the SVS to create visualization products from scientific data. Develop new paradigms, processes, and software tools that improve the visualization capability of the SVS and its customers. Collaborate and consult with researchers, outreach experts and other external entities to gain maximum utility of SVS products and systems.
The Government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12.

This procurement is a total small business set-aside. The NAICS Code and Size Standard are 541712 and 1000 employees, respectively.

Work will be done onsite at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

All responsible sources may submit an offer which shall be considered by the agency.

The anticipated release date of the RFP is on or about May 16, 2011. This competitive procurement will result in a Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) completion contract.

NASA Clause 1852.215-84, Ombudsman, is applicable. See NASA Specific Note B.
