The following is issued to replace announcement previously issued which was corupted in transmission. Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) W909MY-04-R-0025, soliciting white papers for applied research in Environmental Control technology has been posted on the Single Face to Industry website, https://abop.monmouth.army.mil. The BAA is valid through fiscal year 2007, unless sooner terminated. This BAA is issued under provisions of paragraph 6.102(d)(2) and paragraph 35.016 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) which provides for competitive selection of research and development proposals submitted in resp onse to this announcement. Accordingly, proposals selected for award are considered to be the result of full and open competition and fully compliant with PL 98-369, The Competition in Contracting Act of 1984. Environmental Control technology is one of the key research and development candidates within the U S Army. The U S Army is interested in receiving white papers followed by proposals for basic and applied research, development, and demonstration of small, lightweight, efficient environmental control technology and associated components for use in various applications ranging from 6 kBTUh to 120 kBTUh. The technology shall operate within an ambient air temperature from 0 to +125 degrees Fahrenheit while pr oviding cooling. Research and development of environmental control auxiliary components such as heat exchangers, fans, thermal expansion valves, electronic controls and other technologies that are associated with environmental control technology are also acceptable as a separate item or as part of a larger research and development proposal. These technologies shall utilize environmentally approved refrigerants with a 0 ODP and zero net Global Warming Potential (GWP). Heat actuated cooling technologies utilizing waste heat from a power source or direct combustion of diesel fuel are acceptable under this topic. Power generation technology which can be incorporated with the environmental control technology to form a self -powered capability and provide output exportable power that meets MIL-STD 1331 for power quality while simultaneously operating at full heating or cooling capacity are acceptable under this topic. Prospective offerors should note that this BAA is an expression of interest only and does not commit the Government to make an award or pay proposal preparation costs generated in response to this announcement. The cost of proposal preparation for respons e to a BAA is not considered an allowable direct charge to any resultant contract or any other contract. However, it may be an allowable expense to the normal bid and proposal indirect cost specified in FAR 31.205-18. Funds are not presently available fo r the research interests represented in this BAA. No contract award will be made unless appropriated funds are available for payment for the effort being acquired. Prospective offerors are reminded that only a duly warranted Contracting Officer may obligate the Government. Any resultant contract award would include all clauses required by Federal Acquisition Regulations and appropriate supplements. This BAA is intended for the development of research efforts in support of the RDEC Army Power Division. Potential offerors are reminded that only a duly warranted contracting officer may obligate the government to an agreement involving the expenditure o f Government funds. In order for any proposals to be considered, the proposed effort MUST meet the definition of basic or applied research and development found at FAR 35.001. Submission of White Papers is mandatory prior to submission of a full proposal . The selection of one or more proposals for award will be based on a peer and scientific evaluation of each offerors response (to include both technical and cost aspects) to determine the overall merit of the proposal in response to this announcement. White Papers/Proposals s hall be submitted in electronic format via the Army Single Face to Industry Interactive Business Opportunities Page (IBOP). The URL for the IBOP is https://abop.monmouth.army.mil. The IBOP submittal shall include an electronic signature by an individual having authority to enter into a contract. In order to be able to access the RFP and submit a proposal a contractor must first be registered on the IBOP. A CAGE Code and DUNS number are required to complete registrat ion for proposal submissions. A contractor employee who is authorized to bind the contractor must complete the registration. The process could take several days to finalize the registration and contractors are encouraged to register as soon as possible. Proposals shall be submitted via electronic media using Microsoft Office 2000 products (i.e., Microsoft (r) Word and Excel, and Adobe Acrobat version 4.0), in separate files for each proposal volume as set forth below. All information pertaining to a parti cular volume shall be confined to that file. There will be no formal request for proposal or any further solicitation document issued in regard to this BAA. Therefore, interested parties should be alert for any amendments that maybe published. Amendments to this BAA will be issued through the Army Single Face to Industry Interactive Business Opportunities Page (IBOP) at https://abop.monmouth.army.mil. This BAA will be open for three (3) years from the date of issue. Offerors shall not submit questions related to this BAA electronically using the Question format available in the Army IBOP BAA - Environmental Control Technology solicitation folder. Questions regarding this acquisition must be submitted to the Contract Specialist Tobin Gatto, 703-325-9084 or email: tobin.gatto@cacw.army.mil. All responses to questions relating to the BAA will be posted electronically on the IBOP and available to all vendors. Responses to questions relating to a specific vendor approach will be answered via email to that vendor. The Government requires a minimum of 1-week to staff solicitation questions. No discussion is to be held with offerors by the technical staff after proposal submission without the permission of the Contracting Officer. Offerors are again directed to access the BAA at the Army Single Face to Industry Interactive Business Opportunities Page (IBOP). The URL for the IBOP is https://abop.monmouth.army.mil.
