Interested firms having the required capabilities necessary to meet the requirements described herein should submit a capability statement of no more than 12 pages, no greater than 3MB, indicating the ability to perform all aspects of the effort.

A page is defined as one side of a sheet, 8 1/2″ x 11″, with at least one-inch margins on all sides, using not smaller than 12-point type.  Foldouts count as an equivalent number of 8 1/2″ x 11″ pages.  Responses must be submitted electronically in portable document format (PDF), with searchable text.  The capability statement must include: company’s name, address, and a point of contact (name, e-mail address, and address); Data Universal Numbering System number and cage code; number of years in business; annual receipts in accordance with 13 CFR 121.104(c) and the period of measurement used; company’s size and socioeconomic status under NAICS code 561612; ownership, affiliate information (as applicable) including parent company and joint venture partners; interest as a prime or subcontractor; interest in being included on an interested parties list; and specific capabilities relevant to NPSC-SR requirements.  It is not sufficient to provide general brochures or generic information.  In addition, the capability statement must include, at a minimum, three contracts in effect during the period:  January 1, 2015, to the present.  For each contract, identify/provide the following:  contract number; customer name; period of performance; a brief description of relevant work performed; company role (i.e., prime or sub); number of employees; contract or subcontract value; and previous and current facility clearance levels (FCL).  Responses should not include proprietary or confidential information; however, if proprietary data is included in a reply, it is to be marked as such. 

KSC is also interested in feedback, with supporting rationale, from industry regarding subcontracting opportunities and phase-in length. This feedback may be used as research information to support development of an acquisition strategy and is excluded from the page limitation identified above.  NASA intends to update this notice on beta.SAM.gov to announce future opportunities for NASA and industry exchanges regarding the NPSC-SR.
