Added: Jan 26, 2011 2:32 pm
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency (HSARPA) Cyber Security Division's (CSD) announce a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Fiscal Year 2011 to improve the security in both Federal networks and the larger Internet.

This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeks ideas and proposals for Research and Development (R&D) in 14 Technical Topic Areas (TTAs) related to CSD. The total estimated value of this acquisition is $40 million.


Cyber attacks are increasing in frequency and impact. Even though these attacks have not yet had a significant impact on our Nation's critical infrastructures, they have demonstrated that extensive vulnerabilities exist in information systems and networks, with the potential for serious damage. The effects of a successful cyber attack might include: serious consequences for major economic and industrial sectors, threats to infrastructure elements such as electric power, and disruption of the response and communications capabilities of first responders.


The DHS S&T mission is to conduct, for homeland security purposes, research, development, test and evaluation (RDT&E) and timely transition of cyber security capabilities to operational units within DHS, as well as local, state, Federal and operational end users in critical infrastructure. Cyber security is defined in broad terms to encompass the usual attributes of security, as well as reliability, availability, and survivability in the face of adversary attack and accidental fault, while preserving privacy.


DHS S&T invests in programs offering the potential for revolutionary changes in technologies that promote homeland security and accelerate the prototyping and system prototype demonstration in an operational environment of technologies that reduce homeland vulnerabilities.


A critical area of focus for DHS is the development and deployment of technologies to protect the nation's cyber infrastructure, including the Internet and other critical infrastructures that depend on computer systems for their mission.


The goals of the DHS Cyber Security Division (CSD) are:


• To perform research and development (R&D) aimed at improving the security of existing deployed technologies, and to ensure the security of new emerging systems;


• To develop new and enhanced technologies for the detection of, prevention of, and response to cyber attacks on the nation's critical information infrastructure; and


• To assist the transfer of these technologies into the national infrastructure as a matter of urgency.

DHS/S&T has issued this BAA and shall evaluate White Papers and Full Proposals in accordance with the solicitation's terms and conditions. That said, potential offerors are put on notice that the DHS may elect to have other United States' federal agencies negotiate and ultimately award funding instruments under this BAA (which DHS/S&T evaluated and selected for negotiation). These other federal entities may include the: Department of Interior - National Business Center; Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), and/or Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command (SPAWAR).

Under this BAA and as authorized by 6 U.S.C. § 195c, a resultant award may be jointly-funded by the DHS and either the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or the Government of Australia. If jointly-funded, pursuant to those countries' international agreements with the DHS, certain contractual provisions must be included in the resultant funding instrument(s). Specifically, as required by both international agreements, their Article Ten, Contracting, indicates:


DHS shall ensure suitable provisions to satisfy the requirements of Article 12 (Information Security), Article 13 (Intellectual Property Management and Use of Information), Article 14 (Publication of Research Results) and Article 17 (Third Party Sales and Transfers) are inserted into contracts awarded under this BAA, as well as have them require subcontracting flow-down of said provisions. To review these two international agreements, see the section titled, "Cooperation in Homeland/Civil Security Matters" at the following link: http://www.dhs.gov/files/international/counterterrorism.shtm."

Amendment 00014 June 30, 2011

The attached document, "Cyber Security BAA 11-02 Amend 00014 pdf.," makes changes from the previous version. The BAA is hereby amended as follows:

Replace paragraph IX. D.3 with the following:


3. Procedures for submitting a proposal are as follows:


a. On BAA web portal (https://baa2.st.dhs.gov), select "Proposal Submission" link on left side menu.


b. Logon using assigned username and password. Once logged on, the "Proposal Activity Worksheet" will display.


c. On "Proposal Activity Worksheet," under the section titled, "Proposals submitted or past due date", locate the submitted white paper for which a proposal is to be created.


d. Click on the "Create Full Proposal" link within the applicable white paper record. The "Start Full Proposal" page will display.


e. Enter the proposal title.


f. Click the "Add Proposal to Activity Worksheet" button. The "Proposal Activity Worksheet" page will display. The proposal that was started will be listed under the "Proposals in Progress" section.


g. For the proposal in progress, open each component displayed, i.e, "Cover Sheet A", "Cover Sheet B", "Cost Proposal", and "Proposal Upload" and complete. Further information regarding each of these components is provided below.


(1) "Cover Sheet A" and "Cover Sheet B" will not be marked as "Complete" until all required fields have been populated.


(2) "Cost Proposal" component. This component does not need any cost information to be entered since the proposal to be uploaded will contain a complete cost proposal. However, in order for this component to be marked "Complete", the below steps must be followed:


(a) Click the Cost Proposal link. The "BAA Cost Proposal" page will display.


(b) On the "BAA Cost Proposal" page, click the "Summary" tab.


(c) Without entering any data, click the "Complete Cost Proposal" button. The "BAA Cost Proposal - Update Status" page will then display.


(d) On the "BAA Cost Proposal - Update Status" page, click the "Return to Activity Worksheet" button. The "Proposal Activity Worksheet" will display. The "Cost Proposal" component will now be marked as complete.


It is not necessary to delete any information that an offeror may have already populated in the "Cost Proposal" component. However, no information from this component, or any cost information included in any other component, will be used for the evaluation of submitted proposals. Only the cost information included in the submitted proposal will be considered in the evaluation of proposals.


(3) "Proposal Upload" component. In order for this component to be marked as "Complete", upload the Volume I and II prepared in accordance with the requirements outlined in BAA 11-02. Ensure Volumes I and II are listed under "Currently Uploaded File(s)" in order for this component to be marked as "Complete". Once uploaded, select the "Return to Activity Worksheet" button.


(4) Completing the "Briefing Chart" component is not required because the proposal that will be uploaded is required to contain a Quad Chart; so duplicating it in the "Briefing Chart" component is not necessary. Since this is an optional component, it is not necessary for the component to be marked "Complete" in order to successfully submit a proposal. It is not necessary to delete any information that an offeror may have already populated in the "Cost Proposal" component. However, no information from this component will be used for the evaluation of submitted proposals.


h. On the "Proposal Activity Worksheet" page, when all the components are listed as "Complete", except for the "Briefing Chart" component, click the "Submit Proposal" link located as the bottom left of the proposal in progress. The "Submit Proposal" page will display. THE PROPOSAL IS NOT YET SUBMITTED.


i. On the "Submit Proposal" page, click the "Submit Proposal" button. Once a proposal is successfully submitted, offerors will receive a confirmation message on the screen and via e-mail. If a confirmation message is not received, contact the BAA Portal help desk at dhsbaa@reisys.com. In addition, when the proposal has been correctly submitted, it will appear under the "Proposals submitted or past due date" section on the "Proposal Activity Worksheet" page, and will NO LONGER APPEAR under the "Proposals in progress" section.
