The Small Business Administration (SBA) intends to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit proposals from existing regional innovation clusters to provide business training, counseling, mentoring, commercialization and technology transfer services, and other services that support the growth and development of small businesses in the cluster area and industries. SBA intends to make multiple fixed-price contract awards, each with a one-year base term with an option for an additional year. Annual proposal costs should not exceed $600,000 and all contracts will be subject to applicable contract cost principles and procedures (Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 31). SBA will select regional innovation clusters in communities across the country that meet its specified criteria. Offerors will be asked to demonstrate that they have partnerships, technical capacity, and local assets to support their existing regional cluster, as well as experience fostering small business development and growth opportunities. SBA will evaluate offers based on a number of criteria, including the impact the services will have on the region's economic growth, creation of sustainable jobs and the opportunities the regional innovation cluster will provide for small businesses. SBA intends to post the RFP on or about July 7, 2010. All responsible sources may submit an offer that will be considered by the agency. Offerors need to be registered in the Central Contractor Registration database, which can be found at www.ccr.gov, and have a DUNS Number established by Dun & Bradstreet (see https://fedgov.dnb.com).
