The Federal government is looking for ideas in remote sensing and spill containment of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Do you have the knowledge and technical training to respond rapidly? All submitted White Papers meeting the requirements of this BAA will be reviewed and evaluated as they are received. Each White Paper will undergo an initial screening. The initial screening will result in a determination that either (1) the White Paper has a potential for immediate benefit to the spill response effort, (2) the White Paper submission needs more detailed investigation or evaluation and will be forwarded to the appropriate Government Agency overseeing that portion of the Deepwater Horizon Response (EPA, MMS, NOAA, or USCG), or (3) the White Paper submission does not support this incident. A Contracting Officer will provide a response to all properly submitted White papers identifying the initial screening determination. This announcement constitutes a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) issued under the provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), Subparts 6.102(d)(2) and 35.016, to provide for the submission of White Papers (written description of the idea) in support of the Deepwater Horizon Response under the following five technology gap areas: 1. Oil Sensing Improvements to Response and Detection (For example, tactical oil sensing, surface oil tracking and reporting, submerged oil detection, submerged oil tracking and reporting, etc.) 2. Oil Wellhead Control and Submerged Oil Response (For example, wellhead spill control, wellhead shutoff measures, submerged oil collection, submerged oil treatment, etc.) 3. Traditional Oil Spill Response Technologies (For example, booms, skimmers, surface collections techniques, absorbents, near- and on-shore response, innovative applications not commonly used for oil spill response, disposal, etc.) 4. Alternative Oil Spill Response Technologies (For example, In-situ burn, alternative chemical treatments, innovative applications not commonly used for oil response, etc.) 5. Oil Spill Damage Assessment and Restoration (For example, damage assessment techniques, tracking surface restoration technologies and submerged restoration technologies, etc.) Paper copies of this announcement will not be issued. Offerors shall respond to this BAA by electronically submitting a White Paper at www.homeport.uscg.mil/RDC-BAA-DHR. All contractual and technical questions regarding this BAA must be in writing and sent to RDC-BAA-DHR [at] uscg [dot] mil. Informational questions and associated answers (i.e. FAQs) will be periodically posted at http://www.homeport.uscg.mil/RDC-BAA-DHR-FAQ. White Papers shall provide technology ideas/solutions to support the five technology gap areas identified above. Offerors are hereby notified that it is highly likely that White Papers may be shared with several different Government agencies and other interested parties (which may include contractors) for review and consideration.
