The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC) has a requirement to conduct an economic analysis to measure benefits of right whale protection in the Northwest Atlantic. The purpose of this contract is to attain the services of a contractor with expertise in non-market valuation methods (contingent valuation, contingent choice methods or experimental economics) to develop a long-term study/strategic plan that includes an economic measure of willingness-to-pay (WTP) for right whale protection. The overall study effort will be divided into three main phases: Phase 1 (Year 1) - Pre-design; Phase 1 (Year 2) - Design survey instrument (optional); Phase 2 - Survey implementation (optional); and Phase 3 - Final analysis of survey data and final report (optional). Phase 1 encompasses the development of a research team and design of a survey instrument to the point where it can be implemented in Phase 2. Phase 1 will be spread over a two-year period with the second year optional. The goal of the first year pilot project, the pre-design step, is to specify the overall design of a long-term project to be conducted at a later date (i.e. the actual survey). The pre-design step also includes assistance in designing a non-market valuation study that would allow NMFS to use the derived WTP estimates in some benefit-cost type of analysis. After the pre-design phase is complete, feasibility of the study assessed, and the scope of the long-term project is developed, NMFS will determine whether the additional research will be implemented. All responsible sources may submit an offer that shall be considered by the agency. To be eligible for award, offerors must be registered with the Central Contractor Registration (CCR): www.ccr.gov and obtain a DUNS number by calling 1-800-333-0505. A copy of the solicitation will be attached to this announcement as a downloadable Word file on or about May 25, 2004. A hard copy of the solicitation will only be provided in response to a written or faxed request received directly from the requestor. Telephone requests will not be honored. Requests for hard copies of the solicitation may be faxed to (757) 441-3786. Offers received by July 2, 2004 will be considered for award. Numbered Note 1 applies. THIS MODIFICATION IS ISSUED TO CORRECT THE PRECEDING STATEMENT. NUMBERED NOTE 1 DOES NOT APPLY TO THIS ACQUISITION. THE CLASSIFICATION IS UNRESTRICTED.
