ASRS_Extension – Sources Sought – Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS)

Aug 25, 2020 | Sources Sought

NASA/Ames Research Center (ARC) has a requirement for Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS).   NASA ARC operates and manages the ASRS and other safety reporting systems that are modeled to function as voluntary, independent, confidential systems in aviation and railroad transportation.  The ASRS operates under an Interagency Agreement (IAA) with the Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).  

NASA ARC intends to extend contract NNA16BD58C for Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) with Booz Allen Hamilton on a sole-source basis to 10 U.S.C 2304 (c) (1), and FAR 6.302-1, Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services with Satisfy Agency Requirements.  

The purpose for the extension is necessary to continue on-going mission critical work, pending placement of the follow-on contract.

The period of performance will be extended for up to 18 months, consisting of 12-month base period, and two three-month option periods.  The period of performance will be extended from May 9, 2021 through November 8, 2022, if all options are exercised.  The extension will increase the current contract value.

The Government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12.    

Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort electronically via email to Veronica L. Gutierrez, Contracting Officer at Veronica.L.Gutierrez@nasa.gov not later than 5:00 PM PST on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.  Such capabilities/qualifications will be evaluated solely for the purpose of determining whether or not to conduct thisacquisition on a competitive basis.  A determination by the Government not to compete this acquisition on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the Government.
