Revised 80ARC018R0007 SF33 dated 4 DEC 2017 Solicitation Amendment P00002 This requirement was previously synopsized under NNA17608320R The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)/Ames Research Center (ARC) plans to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Small Spacecraft Prototyping Engineering Development & Integration (SSPEDI). Over the past 7 years, NASA ARC has partnered with the Department of Defense (DoD) on a number of activities focused on the development of small / medium satellites, satellite systems and subsystems, assembly integration and test, mission assurance, mission design, responsive manufacturing, ground operations, and launch services - often employing innovative approaches in order to accelerate acquisition timelines. Several of these capabilities are currently being met through a suite of contracts, awarded in 2010, under a single award Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract titled "Rapid Response Space Works (RRSW)" and a multiple award IDIQ contract titled "Modular Space Vehicle (MSV)". The SSPEDI acquisition is envisioned to serve as a follow-on to the RRSW and MSV contracts in the continued pursuit of innovative and affordable approaches through basic research, applied research, and advanced development focused on, but not limited to, payloads, buses (i.e. spacecraft subsystems such as life support; attitude control; guidance, navigation and control; command and data handling; communications system and antennas; power; thermal control; propulsion; and structures and trusses), ground systems / infrastructure and launch systems. The requirement will be split into two requirements described below that are separate but interrelated: Space Solutions (SpS), a multiple award contract, focuses on the development of small to medium buses, payloads, and space vehicles based on specific technical and mission requirements for ORS. Primary place of performance will be: The Contractors Facilities. A Request for Information (RFI) NNA16SSPEDI-L for this activity was posted on July 12, 2016. The Government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12. This procurement will be for a 5 year ordering period. The NAICS Code and Size Standard are 541715 -- Research and Development in the Physical, Engineering, and Life Sciences (except Nanotechnology and Biotechnology), Small Business size standard: 1000 employees. This requirement is anticipated to be competed Full and Open. The Government is contemplating a multiple award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF), Cost Plus Incentive Fee (CPIF), and Firm Fixed Price (FFP) task orders. In addition, the Government is contemplating sub-contracted business goals as follows: SpS Small Business Goal 25%, Small Disadvantaged Business 5%, Woman-Owned Small Business 4.5%, Historically Underutilized Business Zone 1.5%, Veteran-Owned Small Business 2.5%, and Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business 1.5%.
