Any questions may be addressed to the Contracting Officer by email (jlowe@usgs.gov). Request for Proposal G11PS00245 will be made available to Columbia University on or about May 16, 2011.The USGS is chartering a vessel which is part of a fleet of Federally-owned global class vessels operated through a Federal and university consortium known as the University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System (UNOLS). Many of the fleets assets are owned by the Navy, NOAA, and U.S. Coast Guard and operated by universities through cooperative agreements between the Federal owner and the competitively selected university. The vessel to be chartered represents a unique asset in the U.S. research fleet. The R/V Marcus Langseth is the only vessel in the fleet with the capability to acquire long-offset multichannel seismic reflection profile data, necessary to characterize the geology of the seafloor.

Firms believing that they can provide these services are encouraged to identify themselves and give written notification to the Contracting Officer. All responsible sources may submit a capability statement which shall be considered by the agency by May 23, 2011.
