Small Business Set-Aside
The Defense Intelligence Agency located at Bolling AFB, Washington DC is seeking sources to utilize/test a Laser Doppler Vibrometry (LVD) system in development for credibility assessment on behalf of the Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment (DACA) located in Fort Jackson, SC. This effort will support the DACA's mission to conduct scientific research into fundamental theoretical and applied credibility assessment issues. This effort is undertaken to optimize credibility assessment of humans passing through a security checkpoint in high volume environments. This effort will specifically address physiological and behavioral assessment procedures applicable in multi-cultural environments with emphasis on the identification and reduction of factors affecting credibility assessment accuracy and variability. It is anticipated that the scope of the project will be broad enough to justify a multidisciplinary investigatory team and at least two geographically separate sites used during data collection. The study should simulate real-world conditions as closely as possible and screen for deceptive individuals in situations that would be of interest to the U.S. law enforcement and intelligence communities. Interested parties should submit a White Paper no greater than 15 pages in length within 15 days after release of this RFI. The White Paper should include information regarding currently existing capabilities that meet all or a subset of the identified attributes. White Papers must be in Microsoft Word for Office 2000 or later compatible format. At a minimum, responses should include company name, size of business, point of contact (including telephone number, facsimile number and e-mail address), and a list of contracts within the past five (5) years under which the interested party has performed the same or similar work. Interested parties are responsible for adequately marking proprietary or competition sensitive information contained in their response. The Government does not intend to award a contract on the basis of this request for information or to otherwise pay for the information submitted in response to this RFI. Interested parties are requested to provide information on their ability to satisfy any or all of the requirements outlined above. Information should be provided by electronic mail to Pamela Robinson at pamela.robinson@dia.mil. This request for information (RFI) is for planning purposes only and shall not be considered as an invitation for bid, request for quotation, request for proposal, or as an obligation on the part of the Government to acquire any products or services. Responses to this RFI will be treated as information only. No entitlement to payment of direct or indirect costs or charges by the Government will arise as a result of contractor submission of responses to this announcement or the Government use of such information. No funds have been authorized, appropriated, or received for this effort. The information provided may be used by the DIA in developing its acquisition strategy, statement of work/statement of objectives, and performance specifications. The Government will make final decisions on the set-asides based on market research and responses from this Request for Information (RFI), as well as other procurement and program related criteria. The deadline for submission of information is 23 July 2009 at 3:00 pm. This information is being requested for purposes of market research.
