Respondents are invited to provide comments on the content of this request to ensure that, in the event the Government chooses to issue a formal solicitation, every effort will be made to adequately address the scientific and technical challenges described below. As such, responses to this request must be available for unrestricted public distribution. Neither proprietary nor classified concepts or information should be included in any response. The following regulatory guidance applies to this Request for Information (RFI):

FAR 52.215-3, Request for Information or Solicitation for Planning Purposes (Oct 1997)

The Government does not intend to award a contract on the basis of this Request for Information (RFI) or to otherwise compensate any interested party for information.

BACKGROUND:

The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) located in Alaska has a requirement for a contractor to video, photograph, map and catalogue geomorphic and biological shore-zone resources at effective mapping scales of better than 1:10,000 for various locations in Alaska specifically, and potentially other coastal areas of the United States.

The objective of this requirement will be to:

1. Collect ShoreZone imagery of the Alaska coastline and potentially other coastlines along the United States,
2. Using this low-tide aerial video and still imagery, map the geologic and biological features and enter the data into a georeferenced data base,
3. Complete the necessary inventory and mapping needed for a continuous dataset for the entire coastline of Alaska following the methodology described in the paper “ShoreZone Mapping Protocol for the Gulf of Alaska” (August 2008),
4. A georeferenced GIS database which includes shoreline geomorphology, substrates, and biological habitats is required as indicated by research and management activities by federal, state, and local agencies and by nongovernmental organizations.

DESCRIPTION and TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS:

Respondents are requested to provide information which addresses the vendor’s ability to meet the requirements listed below:

A. Capability of providing ShoreZone Imagery Collection performed by qualified personnel using state-of-the-art equipment. Contractor shall also be able to meet the following requirements:

FIELD SURVEY PLANNING – A field survey plan is developed for each low-tide window survey. The survey is conducted at the lowest daylight tides of the year with tidal elevations of 0.0 meters or lower. Surveys are only conducted in the summer months from May through August in order to ensure mapping of aquatic vegetation. Operating bases are identified, field survey personnel are identified, logistical helicopter support is arranged (including fuel caches where required) and accommodations for the survey crew are secured. The Field Survey Plan is developed in consultation with the contracting officer representative (COR) and should be reviewed by the COR prior to conducting the survey.

FIELD PERSONNEL – Typically a crew of four individuals are needed in the aircraft including a coastal geomorphologist, a coastal biologist, an in-flight navigator, and a pilot. When surveys necessitate using a smaller helicopter (such as a Robinson R-44) which only holds three persons plus necessary equipment, the geomorphologist or biologist may also do the duties of the navigator. The coastal geomorphologist is responsible for designing the survey, operating the video camera, and collecting the video imagery to sufficient resolution for ShoreZone mapping system. The coastal geomorphologist provides a continuous audio commentary on the geomorphology including specifics on the substrate character that may not be visible on the videography. The coastal biologist is responsible for working with the geologist to design the survey, operating the still-image camera, and shooting still imagery to sufficient resolution for ShoreZone mapping. The coastal biologist provides a continuous audio commentary on the intertidal biota with emphasis on the biological attributes and biobands used in the ShoreZone mapping system. An in-flight navigator is responsible for ensuring that aerial survey coverage is complete, and that the electronic navigation system is recording on second navigation fixes.

FIELD DATA PRODUCTS – The primary products originating from the field program are listed below. As technology changes, data formats change and the suggested specification below are minimum standards.

NAVIGATION DATA FILES – provide location of the survey information on second fix marks with associated latitude, longitude of each fix (to four decimal places) and global positioning system (GPS) clock time. The fixes should be collected to differentially corrected global positioning system (DGPS) standards (horizontal positioning accuracy typically +/- 5m).

VIDEOGRAPHY – low-tide, oblique aerial video imagery. Record videography on media that measures at least 530 lines per inch (LPI) resolution with GPS fix (lat/long) and time burned to each image. In 2006, imagery was recorded on miniDV tapes, which meets this standard, but technology is changing. Filming in HD and recording directly to digital video cards may be viable upgrades if previous standards are maintained at a minimum. In addition, GPS information is to be attached to metadata in the form of geotags: (eg. EXIF: Latitude 55, 44′ 18″, Latitude Reference – North latitude; Longitude 160, 0′ 51″, Longitude Reference – West longitude) and attributed to Alaska ShoreZone program (EXIF copyright: Alaska ShoreZone CC BY 3.0) via metadata. Record synchronous geomorphological narration on the left audio channel and biological narration recorded on the right audio channel. In the past, miniDV original tapes (originals) were used to create a master set of DVDs and then archived. A preferred upgrade would be all imagery placed on portable hard drives.

PHOTOGRAPHY – still photography is collected during the over fights and recorded digitally. Minimum 12 megapixel image quality is required. Other file formats must provide equivalent resolution. Images should frame from above the higher high water line to below the lower low water line levels unless broad, flat habitats preclude this. In these habitats maximize image from center halfway between higher high waterline to below the lower low waterline. Zooms of specific features are occasionally collected. The camera clock is synchronized to the GPS clock so that the exact time of each photo is recorded in the metadata for each image; this ensures that the exact location of each photo is known. Images should be geotagged (eg. EXIF: Latitude 55, 44′ 18″, Latitude Reference – North latitude; Longitude 160, 0′ 51″, Longitude Reference – West longitude) and attributed to Alaska ShoreZone program (EXIF copyright: Alaska ShoreZone CC BY 3.0). Photos are transferred to DVD or hard drive (or other storage device) and typically archived by day. On average the target is one photo every three seconds (1,200 photos per hour) or a minimum of 1,000 photos per hour. The number of photos taken per hour varies somewhat with habitat and location.

FLIGHTLINE MANUAL – a flight line manual shall be produced to show the flight path associated with each tape or DVD. The path is shown in reference to standard maps (either NTS topographic maps, NOAA charts or electronic shorelines derived from one of these two shoreline). Locations of all photos are shown on the flight line maps. A log is included with each tape to relate geographic features to flight path times and to photo locations.

SHOREZONE DATA ANALYSIS AND MAPPING REQUIREMENTS
ShoreZone mapping and data analysis requires oblique aerial imagery to be converted to repeatable units or classes of data; the data shall include both spatial representation that fixes the information on maps (i.e., a mapping system) and an attribute representation that classifies data into a discrete number of categories (i.e., a classification system). Both geological and biological attributes shall be mapped and classified with quality assurance and quality control (QAQC) procedures throughout the process.

GEOLOGICAL ATTRIBUTE MAPPING
The geomorphology mapper reviews the imagery, as well as other existing maps and air photos, and marks the shore units onto an electronic shoreline. A shore unit is the primary mapping unit which delineates locations of uniform sediment texture, geomorphology and wave exposure. Shore units may be represented as line segments, points or polygons. Each shore unit is further characterized by the geologist in terms of a collection of across-shore components. The best shoreline must be used to delineate the shoreline. Where there are large deviations in the digital shoreline, adjustments may be made. This shall be noted in the metadata.

Each shore unit is further characterized by the geologist in terms of a collection of across-shore components. The across-shore components are geomorphic features, such as cliffs, beach berms, tidal flats, with associated texture characteristics. The across-shore component attributes are entered into the database but are not delineated on maps. The components are described in terms of (a) observed forms and substrates (e.g., a cobble berm), (b) a landward to seaward sequence and (c) the tidal zone in which they occur (i.e., supratidal, intertidal or subtidal). Within a unit, there may be primary, secondary or tertiary components. The Component data is searchable for particular features (e.g., dunes, pebble beach berms, intertidal structures, mudflats greater than 100m in width).

BIOLOGICAL ATTRIBUTE MAPPING
The biota is characterized by a biologist in terms of recognizable and repeatable biotic assemblages that are called biobands. Biobands are attached, epibenthic species, both plants and animals, that are living in the intertidal zone, usually at characteristic across-shore elevations. In most cases, the biobands are named by a single indicator species (e.g., ‘Zostera’ bioband) but in some cases a characteristic colour/texture descriptor is used for a combination of indicator species (e.g., the ‘ Dark-Brown Kelps’ bioband that includes the lower intertidal, chocolate brown, stalked kelps). All of the biobands represent assemblages of biota and are not intended to indicate the occurrence of a single indicator species.

Each bioband is classified as absent (not observed in the unit), patchy (occurs within less than 50% of the unit) or continuous (occurs within more than 50% of the unit); biobands are nested within across-shore components. The bioband data are searchable and linked to both Unit and Component data.

SHORE STATION GROUND SURVEYS – Shore Station ground surveys provide the opportunity for close-up observations of species and substrates identified during aerial observations and therefore the opportunity to clarify the assumptions made regarding the characteristics of the coastal biobands and geologic substrate during aerial observations. The primary objectives of the shore stations investigations are to (1) obtain specific site information to enhance our knowledge and understanding of mapping classifications in a given area; (2) conduct detailed, site specific observations of substrate, morphology and biota at selected shore locations to better understand coastal processes and ecology; (3) collect detailed physical and biological measurements; (4) collect information on species assemblages to complement the aerial perspective of biobands; (5) document regional differences in the biota present in the biobands; and (6) to make this information publically available by adding it to the existing ShoreStation data on-line.

Both geomorphologic and biological information is acquired using the ShoreZone classification definitions provided in the ShoreZone protocol. Across-shore profiles are surveyed for width, elevation, sediment composition, geomorphology, and biota. The data are systematically recorded in Shore Station databases. Field photos are systematically recorded and are linked to the survey notes. Survey profiles are plotted to a common datum. Given sufficient funding the geographic extent of the ground survey should reflect the geographic extent of the aerial survey, should be planned for a similar tide window, and should include each habitat type within the survey area. Sediment samples may be required to be taken at shore stations to archive for hydrocarbon analyses in the event of a local or regional oil spill.

Transects will be conducted using the Emery profiling technique. A transect line is laid out perpendicular to the shoreline to measure beach length and slope with descriptions of biotic and geomorphic features recorded at points along the transect. Across-shore profiles are measured to describe details of the geomorphic features at the shore station. Elevations are measured from the uppermost supratidal zone, from the ‘marine limit’, as defined by the edge of terrestrial vegetation, across the shoreline to the waterline. See Figure 1 below. All biological species are recorded in the across-shore components and their relative abundance (e.g. rare, few, common, abundant). Complete photo documentation of the beach is a priority and must be georeferenced at a high-resolution.

Substrate categories recorded at ground stations in ShoreZone are defined according to the standard size classes and nomenclature of the Wentworth scale. Most substrate definitions are for ‘sediment’ substrates and defined by the sizes of the particles (or ‘clasts’). The two substrate types found at the bottom of the list are ‘biogenic’ and are formed by biological processes. On surveyed transects at the ground station, the substrate observations are recorded for each interval along the across-shore profile. Combinations of multiple substrates are often observed and are listed on the profile in order of relative abundance. Thin layers or veneers of one substrate or more over top of another can also be observed. These veneers are listed as substrates ‘over’ substrates (e.g., boulder, cobble over bedrock).

Shore Station data must be presented as a GIS layer. The data base must provide a list of species observed with representative photos. The data base must also have the capability to query the data by region, locale, station, select ShoreZone attributes (habitat class, biobands, etc.), and by species or species groups at a minimum. Data must include fully FGDC compliant metadata files for all ArcGIS feature classes. The ShoreStation datasets shall be combined with the existing datasets and be made accessible to the public on the NMFS website. The contractor shall provide technical support to NMFS for any problems that arise when combining the new datasets with the existing datasets.

Currently the Shore Station database houses over 400 ShoreZone Shore Stations that have been visited since 2002 throughout the Gulf of Alaska (including southeast, Prince William Sound, the outer Kenai Peninsula, Kodiak Island archipelago, Cook Inlet, and the Katmai National Park coast) and in Bering Strait, Kotzebue Sound, the Chukchi Sea and the Beaufort Sea. This online database has been designed to provide easy access to Shore Station data via a query able display of stations at local and regional geographic scales and the ability to download species lists and photos. The ground stations are ‘point features’ that are spatially linked to the Alaska ShoreZone web enabled database. New data collection must be compatible with the existing data formats.

OTHER SHOREZONE PRODUCTS – ShoreZone data can be used to generate products that are relevant to ecosystem, habitat, and fisheries management. The high resolution, attribute rich dataset is conducive to habitat modeling. The dataset is suitable for development of habitat capability models for various fish, shellfish and invertebrate species. It has been used to predict habitat use by green crab and pacific herring and it was used for sea cumber management applications. The landscape scale of dataset also makes it a useful tool for extrapolation of site data over broader spatial ranges. The ShoreZone data was used for management of marine debris. Various applications of the ShoreZone data have been developed for oil spill response.

ShoreZone has a public outreach component. NMFS maintains the ShoreZone data online and makes it accessible to the public at no cost. NMFS wants this data to be both physically and intellectually available to the public. Task orders may be issued to provide support for making the data physically and intellectually available to the public.

ShoreZone products requested may include the development of habitat capability/suitability models and extrapolation of the data base for specific purposes. Task orders may include: development of oil spill response tools; requests for training, webinairs, or presentations; development of reference manuals; development of training materials; development of ShoreZone publications, brochures, posters, or other informational materials; providing mounted ShoreZone photos; providing additional written reports and special analyses; copies of datasets; technical support for the full ShoreZone dataset maintained by NMFS; and developing potentially new applications of the ShoreZone dataset.

In some areas of the state, along the Arctic coast, ShoreZone mapping has been done from existing imagery. The contractor researched the available imagery and collected it from the source. Existing imagery may need to be used for other parts of Alaska as well for areas that are too remote or for areas where a permit cannot be acquired for aerial surveys (potentially Saint George and Saint Paul Islands). Future task orders may also include gathering, analyzing, and mapping ShoreZone habitats from existing imagery.

R — Waiting Room-Delivered Video to Enhance Antiretroviral Therapy Readiness, Adherence, and Retention in Care for HIV-Positive Minority Persons SNR56653 041913 Sherrie N. Randall, Contract Specialist, Phone 7704882866, Fax 7704882868, Email iom2@cdc.gov – Teri M Routh-Murphy, Contracting Officer, Phone 770-488-2713, Fax 770-488-2778, Email tnr3@cdc.gov This is a sources sought announcement to determine the availability of potential vendors (including, but not limited to, GSA vendors under the Advertising and Integrated Marketing Solutions SIN 541-5 “Integrated Marketing Services”, small business (e.g. 8 (a), veteran-owned small business, service-disabled veteran owned small business, HUBZone small business, small disadvantage business, and women-owned small business) that can provide support to the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) to develop a waiting room-delivered video to enhance antiretroviral therapy (ART) readiness and adherence and retention in care for HIV-positive minority persons.

Background:
Research findings from the HIV Prevention Trials Network HPTN052 study published in 2011 concluded that HIV-positive men and women could reduce their risk of transmitting the virus to their sexual partners by 96% when taking oral antiretroviral therapy (ART). The ability of patients to initiate and adhere to a rigorous and complex ART treatment regime is challenging. There are many reasons for failing to initiate treatment or adhering to a precise and consistent medication schedule that is needed for treatment to be successful. Factors shown to influence treatment readiness and decrease adherence include a patient’s comprehension of their HIV infection and treatment recommendations, health beliefs associated with the benefits of therapy, fears or ambivalence about starting treatment, dosing/regime barriers psychiatric/co-morbidity factors, and lack of social or provider support.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Compendium of HIV Prevention Interventions with Evidence of Effectiveness has identified 8 intervention programs that have demonstrated varying levels of efficacy for improving ART-related outcomes among HIV-positive persons. These programs included six educational/behavioral interventions to improve ART adherence, and two Directly Administered Antiretroviral Therapy (DAART) interventions. All of these interventions are delivered in individual- or small group-level formats and require considerable resources to implement and substantial time commitments from clients. As a result, there is a significant need for treatment readiness/adherence interventions that can be brought to scale quickly, provide maximum coverage, and be sustained at relatively little cost. The development of a video-based structural intervention through this contract directly supports CDC’s High-Impact HIV Prevention framework.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is poised to bring millions of uninsured people – including many HIV-infected minority persons – into the health care system when it is implemented in 2014. Clinical settings may be increasingly more dependent on adopting simple, low-cost, low-intensity waiting room delivered interventions, which can be administered with minimal staff time as part of routine clinical services, to supplement more intensive but effective interventions that require additional patient or staff time to implement. Stand-alone video-based interventions have been found to be efficacious, low-cost, and require limited staff time or training. The stand-alone video-based approach focusing on encouragement of ART among treatment-naï ve patients and ART adherence among HIV-positive patients in treatment may prove to be an important prevention tool in achieving goals of the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, such as improving health outcomes for persons living with HIV/AIDS and reducing HIV-related disparities and health inequities.

This video also could be a key product to assist CDC’s prevention efforts with HIV-positives. In addition, this video will have broad applicability beyond CDC’s DHAP and should be feasible, practical, and cost-effective to extend to virtually all medical care settings across the U.S. that provide HIV medical care to HIV-positive persons, including Health Resources and Services Administration-funded grantees, Veterans Administration-funded clinical care sites, and all private HIV treatment and care clinics.

Purpose and Objectives:

The purpose of this contract is to develop, beta-test, and refine a brief, video-delivered, waiting room intervention that promotes early initiation of ART among treatment-naïve HIV-positive patients, adherence to ART and retention in care among HIV-positive patients currently on therapy, sexual risk reduction tailored to HIV-positive persons, and patient-initiated discussion of these topics with their providers.

Specific objectives of the contract include the following:

1. Develop a draft theory-based, brief, video-delivered waiting room intervention that promotes early initiation of ART among treatment-naïve clients, adherence to ART and retention in care among HIV-positive patients currently on therapy, and sexual risk reduction tailored to HIV-positive minority persons.
2. Develop “movie style” posters to enhance viewership and a User’s Guide to improve the integration of the video into HIV/AIDS treatment facilities.
3. Conduct a beta-test of the draft video intervention in up to four HIV/AIDS treatment facilities meeting specific programmatic criteria.
4. Document the feasibility and use of this intervention during routine clinical care.
5. Collect observational data and supplemental patient-level medical record data from participating treatment facilities as part of the beta-test of the draft video intervention.
6. Refine the draft video intervention based on analysis of the patients’ reactions.
7. Produce interim and final progress reports.
8. Create and deliver interim data sets and final data sets.

The Vendor shall demonstrate capability with the following requirements:

1. Demonstrate evidence of prior collaboration with governmental or nongovernmental organizations including state and local health departments and other groups that provide HIV prevention and/or treatment services for HIV-positive African Americans and Hispanic/Latinos, including Men Having Sex With Men (MSM).
2. Demonstrate ability to design and produce a video-waiting room intervention for HIV/AIDS treatment facilities.
3. Demonstrate the ability to conduct beta-testing for a video-waiting room intervention.
4. Demonstrate the capacity to design, collect and manage electronic datasets from multiple facilities and the ability to ensure data safety.
5. Demonstrate evidence of ability to create and transfer interim and final data sets to customers.

Capability Statement:

Vendors who believe they have the ability to satisfy all of the above stated objectives are encouraged to submit a capability statement. The capability statements will be evaluated based on the information provided in relation to the objectives and requirements above and the current in-house capacity to perform the work including: (a) knowledge of staff availability, experience, and training; (b) prior completed projects of a similar nature; and (c) examples of prior completed contracts, dollar value of the contracts, references, and other related information.

R — INDEFINITE DELIVERY INDEFINITE QUANTITY (IDIQ), DE SOL F13PS00238 Description The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) intends to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ), Design/Build (D/B) Construction, Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) for the Southeast region (Region 4). This is a competitive, best value, source selection that will be conducted in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR Part 15.3). In using this best value approach, the Government seeks to award to offerors who give the greatest confidence that they will best meet our requirements affordably. Projects are located at U.S. Fish and Wildlife Region 4 sites such as national fish hatcheries and national wildlife refuges in the southeastern United States. The Southeast region consists of the States of Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The MATOC will be for 5 years total consisting of a base year plus 4 one-year renewable options, and will result in award to multiple Design/Builders (D/B). The D/B will be requested to submit proposals on a rotational basis after consideration of individual task orders. Extenuating circumstances such as familiarity with a site or specialized skills may dictate that a particular D/B be chosen out of order at the discretion of the Contracting Officer (CO). There will be two (2) evaluation phases. Phase I (Short-list Criteria) and Phase II (Award Selection Criteria. Only applies to short-listed contractors). The sample Task Order referenced under Award Selection Criteria (Phase Two) is a real project and will be awarded as a task order to the short-listed D/B firm having the best design solution. The contract type will be firm fixed price, indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with individual Task Orders. Each Task Order will have a Guaranteed Maximum Price (GMP). Task Orders may vary in size but are expected to be issued for projects in the $50,0 Overview Reference number: F13PS00238 Issue date: 04/09/2013 Response due: 06/06/2013 02:00 PM ET Set Aside: N/A NAICS: PSC / FSC: Agency: DOI Contracting office: FWS, DIVISION OF CONTRACTING AND GR 1875 CENTURY BOULEVARD SUITE 310 Atlanta, GA 30345-3310 Place of Performance: Contact: Walter Cowan Phone: Fax: Email: walter_cowan@fws.gov Vendors conference: Location: Details: NO PREPROPOSAL CONFERENCE IS SCHEDULED For more information about this opportunity please contact the buyer directly.
