This request for information (RFI) is for planning purposes in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clause 52.215 3 (OCT 1997). The purpose of this Sources Sought/Market Survey is to identify interested parties capable of providing commercial solutions to meet space-based Earth and space weather observation requirements of the United States Government (USG). The primary areas of interest include the availability of space and resources on commercial manifested satellite missions; commercial satellite systems that complement or meet the USGEO National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) observing requirements; and potential commercial Earth and Space Weather observation data buys.

To facilitate the preparation of responses from interested parties, NOAA will host an Industry Day on January 28, 2008, at the Department of Commerce Auditorium, Herbert C. Hoover Building, 14th St. and Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC. The Industry Day will serve as the venue for USG representatives to provide presentations on the NOAA mission and goals as they relate to Earth observing capabilities, and present examples of space-based Earth and space weather observation requirements.



All information provided by the USG during Industry Day is for informational purposes only and should not be considered a requirement unless specifically stated in a follow-on solicitation. This information request is for planning purposes and is not to be construed as a commitment by the Government. This is not a solicitation for proposals and no contract will be awarded from this announcement. No reimbursement will be made for any costs associated with providing information in response to this announcement or any follow-up information requests.
