NASA/LARC has a requirement for Spacecraft Operating Software System in support of CubeSat Vault Electronics.

NASA/LARC intends to purchase the items from Astronautical Development LLC (AstroDev). The required proprietary software is the only compatible software able to operate with the existing Astronautical Development CubeSat Vault Electronics, previously purchased under Purchase Order NNL14AD01P. AstroDev is the developer and sole provider of the required software. It would take substantial duplication of resources and time for another source to provide a similar software, and this additional expense is not expected to be recovered through competition.

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 the identified point of contact not later than 12:30 p.m. local time on 07/14/2014. 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.

NASA Clause 1852.215-84, Ombudsman, is applicable. The Center Ombudsman for this acquisition can be found at .
