Request for Proposals (RFP) 1410-00004 for pH and pCO2 Instruments on Fixed Platforms

The Consortium for Ocean Leadership, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “Ocean Leadership”), with funding from the National Science Foundation, is soliciting proposals from qualified organizations interested in providing fixed platform instruments and related services to support the objective of the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI).  The OOI will construct a networked infrastructure of oceanic sensor systems to measure physical, chemical, geological, and biological variables in the ocean and seafloor.

Two classes of instruments are being procured:  instruments for measuring pH (PHSEN), and instruments for measuring partial pressure of carbon dioxide in water (PCO2W).  Vendors may choose to propose either or both classes of instruments.  The two classes of instruments may be awarded separately or both classes may be awarded to the same vendor.

The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to select Offeror(s) who will provide the instruments needed as described in Section C and in accordance with the specifications stated in Section J, Attachments J-1, J-2, and J-3. of the RFP. The Contract resulting from this RFP will be an Indefinite Quantity Contract (IQC) with Delivery Orders funded and awarded individually post-award as a firm fixed price (FFP) award.

The RFP addresses all of the specifics associated with this award. Special attention should be paid to Section L, Instructions to Offerors, and Section M, Evaluation Factors for award.

This RFP does not obligate Ocean Leadership to award any contract or delivery order nor does it commit Ocean Leadership to pay for any costs incurred in the preparation and/or submission of proposals.
