U–Domestic Violence Prevention/Training/Education W91247-12-P-1 050812 Douglas N Ralph Jr., 910-908-1920 MICC Center – Fort Bragg See Statement of work: A summary is provided below: 1.1 Description of services and introduction: The contractor shall provide all personnel, equipment, tools, materials, supervision, other items, and non-personnel services necessary to perform a training class in an alternate format that educates audiences on domestic violence, its many forms, ways to recognize it and ways to make it stop. This is done theatrically all through irreverent song and dance. The intent is to explore alternate delivery platforms for presenting information that addresses issues in a way that makes sense to our target audience. 1.2 Background: Traditional slide presentations have had little to no effect on expressing the severity and importance of domestic violence, Control, and Assault to our audience. The uses of nontraditional delivery methods to illustrate “real life situations” have recently proved very successful in expressing the themes of domestic violence and other emotionally challenging subjects. The presentations that we are seeking will educate/train our audience, and will be used to disprove domestic violence myths and educate Soldiers, DA Civilians, and Family members on ways to prevent abusive relationships in lieu of slide presentations. 1.3 Objectives: The effective delivery of training provides an opportunity to raise awareness of domestic violence, educate about the signs of abuse, and emphasize the negative impact it has on family readiness. 1.3.1 Point out common mistakes made by parents and friends in their frustrated attempts to help the victim escape the abuse. 1.3.2 Bring to light common tactics used by abusers to trap victims into a rigidly controlled relationship. 1.3.3 Point out to abusers the pain and misery they bring to the lives of others through their actions. 1.4 Description of services and introduction: Provide two classes with the format discussed above on the following topics: 1) Domestic Violence; 2) Control and Assault. Each class will consist of two performances. There will be one performance of each class per day, for two consecutive days per installation. Therefore, there will be four classes of the domestic violence class presented, two per day, for a two day period. There will also be two classes of the Control and Assault class presented one per day, for a two day period. These performances will be approximately one-hour musical productions with time for Q&A following the performances. The contractor will conduct these performances/training sessions at the following locations: Fort Benning, Georgia (Tentatively June 2012) Fort Bragg, North Carolina (Tentatively May 2012) Fort Campbell, Kentucky (Tentatively July 2012) Fort Carson, Colorado (Tentatively August 2012) Eglin Air Force Base, Florida (Tentatively October 2012) Joint Base Lewis McChord, Washington (Tentatively September 2012) Fort Stewart, Georgia (Tentatively June 2012) Set-Aside: Total Small Business Place of Performance: MICC Center – Fort Bragg Directorate of Contracting, ATTN: SFCA-SR-BR, Building 1-1333, Armistead & Macomb Streets Fort Bragg NC 28310-5000 US URL: https://www.fbo.gov/notices/bb077419b873ed366acf366fe9d66ee1

TITLE: “Thermal and chemical characteristics of homemade explosives” I. BACKGROUND INFORMATION This procurement is being conducted for the U. S. Department of Commerce (DOC), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Material Measurement Laboratory (MML), Chemical and Biochemical Reference Data Division (CBRDD) in Gaithersburg, Maryland. A research program has been initiated at NIST to develop a thermal- and chemical-signature database for forensic analysis of homemade explosives (HME), using a currently operational rapid laser heating approach, referred to as the laser-driven thermal reactor (LDTR). The NIST LDTR is a state-of-the-art technique, which uses a novel approach to determine the thermal behavior and decomposition of multiphase/multicomponent solid and liquid substances, such as energetics, fuels, and propellants through rapid and controlled heating with laser radiation. It provides in-situ, near temporally resolved determination of substance thermophysical properties and chemical reaction characteristics over a wide range of temperatures, heating rates, gas pressures, and ambient environments. The technique also has the capability to collect chemical reaction products for spectroscopic chemical analysis. The technique can provide in-situ, temporally resolved quantitative information for rates of heat release and chemical kinetics, total heat value, specific heat/energy release, threshold temperature for thermal explosion, and chemical reaction product identification. II. SCOPE OF WORK a. OBJECTIVES/PURPOSE Development of thermal-/chemical-signature database for HME. b. GENERAL: The Contractor shall conduct measurements of thermal and chemical characteristics of HME and perform analysis of LDTR thermograms and chemical-reaction product spectrograms. c.
