NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) intends to negotiate a sole source contract under the authority of FAR 6.302-1, Only One Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services Will Satisfy Agency Requirements, with Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corporation (BATC), 1600 Commerce St, Boulder, CO 80301-2734 to provide highly specialized technical assessment, refurbishment, test, integration, and on-orbit operations support of the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment on the International Space Station (SAGE III on ISS) spaceflight instrument which is being prepared for launch and integration on the ISS in 2016. NASA intends to issue a five-year Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. Because of its long history of designing, developing, fabricating, qualifying and calibrating all of the SAGE series of the instruments, BATC is the only source capable of providing the unique capabilities required to complete the refurbishment and test campaign for the SAGE III on ISS instrument, and support instrument integration, requirement verification, and on-orbit operations and anomaly resolution. BATCs unique knowledge of the SAGE instrument make BATC the only source capable of providing the necessary services within the timeframe required and without substantial duplication of cost.

Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 4:30 p.m. eastern standard time on May 14, 2014.
