NASA/JSC plans to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for support of Bioastronautics activities at the Johnson Space Center. The contract will combine support activities for the Office of Bioastronautics in the Space and Life Sciences Directorate (S&LSD). This support is currently being provided through multiple contracts. The scope of work includes: fundamental and applied biomedical research; biotechnology development; operational space medicine; clinical laboratories; human factors engineering; space food laboratory; biomedical engineering; biomedical hardware design, fabrication, and testing; payload and hardware integration with Shuttle and the International Space Station; and space flight operations. It is anticipated that the solicitation will include a provision for providing Bioastronautics facilities. Some government furnished facilities will be made available, but the potential contractor will be required to provide the complementary and supplemental facilities required to fully accomplish the Bioastronautics mission. The anticipated contract will be a Cost Plus Award Fee and Award Term Contract with a basic period of five years. Additionally, five one-year award term periods will be available making the period of performance potentially up to 10 years. This will be a hybrid contract and structured as follows: a. Performance-based Completion form - This will cover the core capabilities under the contract that include management and administrative and baseline laboratory capabilities supporting IDIQ and LOE work issued under the contract. b. Performance-based Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) - This will include Bioastronautics research and operations support and flight hardware development and integration. Task/delivery orders will be issued and may be either cost reimbursement and/or fixed price. c. Level of Effort (LOE) - This will cover start-up research support, problem solving, and contingency tasks. The contract will require the contractor to have an Earned Value Management System (EVMS). The criteria for a compliant EVMS can be found in NASA Policy Directive 9501.3. The NAICS Code and Size Standard are 541710 and 1000 employees, respectively.
