NASA/GRC has a requirement to purchase an MTS Hydraulic Power Unit, Loadframe Column and Lifts Replacement and Installation and Alignment for an existing NASA GRC servo-hydraulic load frame in the SMART lab.

NASA/GRC intends to purchase the items from MTS Systems Corporation, 14000 Technology Dr., Eden Prairie, MN.

These equipment and components are part of larger MTS frames and need to match exactly the manufacturer specification and size and are direct match and/or replacement of the existing test frames required for proper testing. The Hydraulic Power Unit will be used to run an existing MTS frame where flow and pressure requirements have been set by the manufacturer (MTS). The columns and lifts will replace an existing setup where the columns are too short for the required project testing. Both items will be installed to specs by MTS service personnel in order to keep the original warranty and insure proper installation.

The Government intends to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12.

Organizations that believe they are capable of providing the described requirement may submit their capabilities in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 4:30pm EST on 2/11/2014.

Such capabilities/qualifications will be evaluated solely for the purpose of determining whether or not to conduct this procurement on a competitive basis. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the government.

Oral communications are not acceptable in response to this notice.

NASA Clause 1852.215-84, Ombudsman, is applicable. The Center Ombudsman for this acquisition can be found at ub_library/Omb.html .
