The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), is conducting a Market Survey to identify small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses and 8(a) certified businesses capable of providing on-site Information Technology (IT) Support for NETL.


THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT SYNOPSIS for information and planning purposes and is not to be construed as a commitment by the Government. This is not a solicitation announcement 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.


The North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this effort is 541513 with a size standard of $23.0 million.


For all portions of the work defined in the support areas below that are encompassed by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) for Development (CMMI-DEV), the work shall be performed at CMMI-DEV level 2 or higher. The contractor will be required to provide a SCAMPI Class A Appraisal Disclosure Statement with the proposal documenting a CMMI level 2 or higher rating. The organizational element defined in the disclosure statement shall be the same organizational element proposing and performing the work defined below. Key personnel must have experience working in a CMMI level 2 or higher environment.


NETL is the only U.S. National Laboratory devoted to Fossil Energy Research. NETL has sites in Morgantown, West Virginia; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Albany, Oregon; and Fairbanks, Alaska. In total, these sites include 81 buildings and 14 major research facilities on nearly 200 acres. More than 1,100 employees work at NETL’s five sites; roughly half are Federal employees and half are site support contractors. Additional information about NETL can be attained at our website – www.netl.doe.gov.


Work performed under the subsequent acquisition is anticipated to include logistics and administrative support for IT activities, project management, software license and maintenance agreement management, cyber security planning, reporting and implementation, classified computing support, help desk and desktop end user support for NETL mission-specific systems, Enterprise Architecture (EA) support, support to operate and maintain DOE's Corporate Human Resources Information System (CHRIS), and application development and maintenance for NETL mission-specific systems. The resulting contract will also allow for the award of additional in-scope tasks.


Interested small business concerns should provide a brief description of the following information:


1. Description of capability and demonstrated past experiences in performing Information Technology Support with added emphasis on Enterprise Architecture, Software Engineering and Cyber Security.


2. Copy of their documentation demonstrating CMMI Level 2 or higher rating.
