SPECIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: The SOCOM War-game Center requires an interactive, collaborative, and virtual planning system to depict a realistic, three-dimensional (3D) global, regional and/or urban large scale geographic locale in an auditorium-like environment space. The Virtual Planning Workspace system will include the following capabilities: Interactive Capability – allows user(s) to manipulate data in the virtual display space wherein the manipulated space is changed and allows for simultaneous manipulation by more than one user. Collaborative Capability – allows user(s) to input data that is additive, subtractive or enhancing to the visual space from outstations via remote Internet-based capability. Collaboration may occur during the SOCOM War-game Center main work day and also non-working hours to set the stage for the next day of the planning session using tools at remote user’s location and/or choice of interface. Remote Capability – configuration of the virtual display space so users can view activities from remote out stations via Internet based technology. Capability allows for broadcast of the event both in real time and non-synchronous teleconferencing platform. Virtual Display Space – a 3D visual system that displays the geographic locale including any demographic make-up of the terrain in both air and space and any manipulations of display from the interactive, collaborative and virtual systems. Any 3D display may not exceed 20 feet long by 32 feet wide in accordance with facility space constraints. Facility Description. War-game Center events occur within a USSOCOM facility and utilize the following multiple display mediums at this time which need to be included for this effort. See Attachment 1 for facility depiction and complete list of specifications of the general equipment listing below. • Projection screens • LED monitors • 3D terrain model • Printed material • 58 person elevated seated area • Perceptive Pixel Monitors • Virtual Teleconference (VTC) Capability • Observation area (not an interactive participant) • Current Software or minimum compatibility requirements Physical Constraints.

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONSTITUTES THE ONLY SOLICITATION; QUOTATIONS ARE BEING REQUESTED, AND A WRITTEN SOLICITATION DOCUMENT WILL NOT BE ISSUED. This solicitation is being issued using Simplified Acquisition Procedures. This solicitation is a Request for Quotation (RFQ). The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-59. The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 541519 with a small business size standard of $25M. This requirement is 100% set-aside for small business. All interested Contractors may provide a quote for the following: Background Information: The Object Management Group (OMG) Systems Modeling Language extension of the Unified Modeling Language (SysML/UML) is the most widely usedstandard for systems engineering models. With the growing use of SysML/UML on significant real world projects that involve large teams using many kinds of modeling tools, OMG members observed that interchange of SysML/UML models between tools could be significantly improved. The OMG Model Interchange Working Group (MIWG) was founded by the System Engineering Domain Special Interest Group (SE DSIG), the OMG’s focus group for systems engineering standards, to address interchange issues for SysML/UML and other OMG languages. The MIWG asks tool vendors to demonstrate model interchange among modeling tools for UML, SysML, and UPDM using OMG’s eXtensible Markup Language Metadata Interchange (XMI) as the interchange standard. The MIWG began by defining an initial test suite of 16 test cases for interchange of SysML/UML models and made it available on a public portal (http://www.omgwiki.org/model-interchange/doku.php). The test cases include SysML/UML diagrams and interchange files. To facilitate the testing process, the MIWG developed a “canonical” form for XMI (Canonical XMI) that reduced variability during interchange and enabled automated comparison of exported XMI files with a tool provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (the NIST Validator). The MIWG uses the NIST Validator extensively to ensure the correctness of XMI for its test cases and to check XMI files exported from vendor tools. Participating vendors representing six different modeling tools prepared XMI exports for each of the test cases and imported the exports from other tools to test interoperability. The vendors agreed to publicly post XMI exports from their tools for the MIWG test cases, enabling tool users to assess model interchange capability by comparing the vendor XMI exports to the expected reference XMI file for each test case. Interchange of SysML and UML models between some of the leading tools on the market has significantly improved as a direct result of resolving issues found during MIWG testing. Objectives: The objectives of this contract are to expand the coverage of the MIWG test suite the full range of SysML/UML features, upgrade the test suite for the latest versions of SysML/UML, and develop industrial strength tests reflecting large real-world system engineering projects. The results of the contract will be used by MIWG to improve the interoperability of SysML/UML tools. Scope of Work: The scope of work is tests for interchange of SysML/UML as they are currently standardized. It does not include upgrades or changes to SysML/UML. Tasks: The Contractor shall provide the professional, technical, and support personnel, services, materials, equipment and facilities necessary to meet the stated scope of work.

Quotation Instructions: The offeror shall submit the following: A. Technical Approach (No page limit): The offeror shall provide a written, detailed technical approach for how it proposes to satisfy the requirements of the Statement of Work (SOW). The offeror’s technicalapproach shall demonstrate a thorough understanding of the work requirements and a detailed plan for achieving the objectives of the scope of the SOW. The technical approach shall include information on the techniques and procedures to be employed in achieving the proposed end results in compliance with the requirements of the SOW. B. Contractor Minimum Qualifications (No page limit): The offeror shall demonstrate that they meet the stated contractor minimum qualifications. The Contractor shall have at least five (5) years’ experience with UML 2 and UML 2 interchange and testing, five (5) years’ experience with OMG standardization of UML 2, and ten (10) years’ experience in software development. C. Past Performance (No page limit): The offeror shall provide at least two (2) past performance references for similar contracts/orders for which the offeror has performed as a prime Contractor or as a first-tier subcontractor on similarly scoped contracts/orders awarded to them in the past three (3) years by governmental entities (federal, state, or local) or by non-governmental entities. D. Price Quotation: The offeror shall submit a firm-fixed price quotation. Basis for Award Determination/Evaluation Criteria: A contract will be issued to the contractor whose quotation is determined to offer the best value to the Government after consideration of all evaluation factors. Best value is defined as the procurement process that results in the most advantageous acquisition decision for the Government and is performed through an integrated assessment and trade-off analysis among price and non-price factors. The basis for the award will be a detailed, integrated evaluation by the Government on the basis of how well the quotations satisfy the evaluation criteria specified herein. Accordingly, the Government may award any resulting contract to other than the lowest priced Offeror or other than the Offeror with the highest technical merit rating. The Government has the right to determine whether two or more technical quotations are ‘substantially equal’ or whether any differences in technical weighting are “significant” for the purposes of evaluating the overall merit of quotations. Between quotations of substantially equal technical merit, price will become a more significant factor. Between competing quotations, the Government is not willing to pay significantly more for a minor technical difference, nor is the Government willing to forego a significant technical difference in exchange for a small price differential. Each quotation will be evaluated against the factors described below. An Offeror’s failure to address any factor may be considered indicative of the offeror’s lack of understanding of the Government’s requirements and may result in the quotation being determined unacceptable. Non-cost/Price factors A through C are listed in descending order of importance. Non-cost factors A through C, when combined, are considered more important than Factor D (Price). A. Technical Approach: The technical approach shall be the most important item in the evaluation of the offeror’s capability to perform the desired services. The Government will evaluate the offeror’s proposedtechnical approach to determine if it presents sufficient information to reflect a thorough understanding of the work requirements and a detailed plan for achieving the objectives of the scope of the contract. The Government will evaluate the techniques and procedures to be employed in achieving the proposed end results in compliance with the requirements of the Statement of Work (SOW). The offeror must demonstrate complete understanding of the SOW by providing an original and clear statement of the purpose, intent, and requirements of the project. B. Contractor Minimum Qualifications: The Government will evaluate the offeror’s contractor minimum qualifications on whether or not their qualifications/experience will provide the necessary skills to complete the tasks as detailed in the SOW. As detailed in the instructions to offerors, the Contractor shall have at least five (5) years’ experience with UML 2 and UML 2 interchange and testing, five (5) years’ experience with OMG standardization of UML 2, and ten (10) years’ experience in software development. C. Past Performance: The Government will evaluate the offeror’s past performance information and, if appropriate, its proposed subcontractors’ past performance to determine its relevance to the current requirement and the extent to which it demonstrates that the offeror has successfully completed relevant contracts in the past three (3) years. In assessing the offeror’s past performance information, NIST will evaluate the quality, timeliness, and ability to control cost and schedule of the past work. Evaluation of this factor will be based on information contained in the technical approach portion of the quotation and information provided by references. The Government will evaluate past performance information by contacting appropriate references, including NIST references, if applicable. The Government may also consider other available information in evaluating the offeror’s past performance. The Government will assign a neutral rating if the offeror has no relevant past performance information. D. Price: The Government will evaluate whether the quoted price is fair and reasonable in relation to the solicitation requirements, and consistent with the offeror’s proposed Technical Approach. Prices that are determined to be either unreasonably high or unrealistically low in relation to the proposed work may indicate the offeror’s lack of understanding of the requirement and may result in the overall quotation being considered unacceptable. Offerors must provide sufficient details to support proposed prices.

Son, Contracting Officer, Phone 301-975-8567, Email chon.son@nist.gov THIS IS A COMBINED SYNOPSIS/SOLICITATION FOR COMMERCIAL ITEMS PREPARED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FORMAT IN FAR SUBPART 12.6-STREAMLINED PROCEDURES FOR EVALUATION AND SOLICITATION FOR COMMERCIAL ITEMS-AS SUPPLEMENTED WITH ADDITIONAL INFORMATION INCLUDED IN THIS NOTICE. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONSTITUTES THE ONLY SOLICITATION; QUOTATIONS ARE BEING REQUESTED, AND A WRITTEN SOLICITATION DOCUMENT WILL NOT BE ISSUED. This solicitation is being issued using Simplified Acquisition Procedures. This solicitation is a Request for Quotation (RFQ). The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-59. The associated North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) code for this procurement is 541519 with a small business size standard of $25M. This requirement is 100% set-aside for small business. All interested Contractors may provide a quote for the following: Background Information: Engineering Information Management (EIM) and Business Process Management (BPM) standards are rapidly evolving and beginning to overlap in their concerns. EIM standards are motivated by engineering characteristics but often involve other processes in their enterprises, while BPM standards are used for business processes (BP) that directly affect and interact with engineering. For example, engineering change management (ECM) links product design and customer relationship management (CRM). Significant technological, economic, and strategic benefits can be attained through more effective capture, control, and management of engineering information in conjunction with other business processes. Standards that separate engineering and business activities reduce efficiency of new product development by inhibiting communication between engineering departments and external stakeholders. Furthermore, these collaborations are not well defined or understood as integral parts of the overall business processes leading to sub-optimal engineering and overall management. Integrating EIM and BPM standards as a chain of value-adding activities enables them to be improved, replicated, and monitored much more effectively. They become a corporate asset, rather than a continuing source of time-consuming difficulties and costs. A key success factor for integrating EIM and BPM will be self-serve conformance assurance for EIM and BPM standards individually, and for their integration. This will enable vendors and users to verify compliance of products without the overhead of official designations from standards bodies or other organizations, though these organizations can use the services to establish designations if desired. Self-serve conformance assurance leverages the movement towards Service Oriented Architectures and Cloud Computing, where the services are available on the web through standard protocols. The work described in this document will be performed in collaboration with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) as part of the Systems Integration for Manufacturing and Construction Applications (SIMCA). It will focus on, but is not limited to, the following standard efforts: 1. EIM: Open Group Application (OAG) – Open Group Application Integration Specification (OAGIS) 2. BPM: Object Management Group (OMG) – Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) The Open Applications Group (OAG) is a standards development organization focused on standards-based engineering enterprise process integration. The Open Applications Group Integration Specification (OAGIS) provides common message architecture for interoperability between disparate systems, companies, and supply chains. Business Scenarios are provided as a starting point for integration and complemented with Business Object Documents (BODs) for capturing messages or documents exchanged between software applications or components; between companies; across supply chains; and between supply chains. These include such scenarios as engineering to order and plant data management. The Object Management Group produces both general and domain-specific standards. The Business Modeling & Integration (BMI) Domain Task Force, within OMG, develops specifications of integrated models to support management of an enterprise. These specifications promote inter- and intra-enterprise integration and collaboration of people, systems, processes, and information across the enterprise, including business partners and customers. Of particular interest to this project is the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), a notation that is readily understandable by subject matter experts, including engineers. BPMN creates a standardized bridge for the gap between process design and implementation. It is quickly becoming the most widely adopted standard for enterprise process modeling. Objectives: The objectives of this contract are to apply OMG BPMN for capturing OAGIS Business Scenarios in a computer-interpretable format and provide self-serve conformance assurance for the format, in coordination with OMG and OAG. Scope of Work: The scope of work is integration of OMG BPMN and OAGIS Business Scenarios as they are currently standardized. It does not include upgrades or changes to OMG BPMN or OAGIS Business Scenarios. Tasks: The Contractor shall provide the professional, technical, and support personnel, services, materials, equipment and facilities necessary to meet the stated scope of work. Task 1: Demonstrate Feasibility of Integrating OMG BPMN and OAGIS Business Scenarios Integration The Contractor shall define a process by which concepts from both the OMG BPMN and OAG Business Scenarios and BOD can be unified. The Contractor shall describe the technical approach, any tools and/or future strategies and developments that are required to support this objective.

Feasibility shall be demonstrated via a proof of concept demonstrating integration or interoperability using a limited number of OAG Business Scenarios and BODs. The Contractor shall document in a report the process by which these results were obtain and any recommendations for changes to both OMG and OAG. Task 2: Initiate and Maintain Liaison between OMG and OAG The Contractor shall initiate and act as liaison between the BMI Domain Task Force at OMG and the Business Process Working Group within the OAG with respect to the potential integration or interoperability between OMG BPMN and OAG Business Scenarios and BOD. The Contractor shall participate in, and promote within both standard organizations the benefits of EIM and BPM integration.

The offeror must demonstrate complete understanding of the SOW by providing an original and clear statement of the purpose, intent, and requirements of the project. B. Contractor Minimum Qualifications: The Government will evaluate the offeror’s contractor minimum qualifications on whether or not their qualifications/experience will provide the necessary skills to complete the tasks as detailed in the SOW. As detailed in the instructions to offerors, the Contractor shall have at least five (5) years’ experience with BPMN and BPMN interchange and testing, three (3) years’ experience with OMG standardization of BPMN 2, and ten (10) years’ experience in software development. C. Past Performance: The Government will evaluate the offeror’s past performance information and, if appropriate, its proposed subcontractors’ past performance to determine its relevance to the current requirement and the extent to which it demonstrates that the offeror has successfully completed relevant contracts in the past three (3) years. In assessing the offeror’s past performance information, NIST will evaluate the quality, timeliness, and ability to control cost and schedule of the past work. Evaluation of this factor will be based on information contained in the technicalapproach portion of the quotation and information provided by references.

BACKGROUND: Since 2001, Lake Sonoma at Warm Springs Dam, and the Don Clausen Fish Hatchery have been the center for one of the most innovative fisheries restoration programs in the country.  The goal of  the Russian River Coho Salmon Captive Brood Stock Program is to restore a self-sustaining wild population of endangered Coho Salmon back into the 1,485-square mile Russian River Watershed. However, due the sensitive rearing requirements of the fish, no public access is allowed to view or visit the specialized tanks and high tech methods of this program.   Visitor surveys in 2003, revealed a high percentage of interest by the public in the genetics and the breeding program for Coho salmon.   To accommodate this interest and inform the public of this critical program this contract will produce an interpretive film that will provide our visitors “access” to a program they otherwise could not see.

DESCRIPTION / SPECIFICATIONS / STATEMENT OF WORK Cataloging & Serials Services for DOC Library 1. General Information and Scope of Work The Department of Commerce promotes job creation, economic growth, sustainable development, and improved standards of living for all Americans by working in partnership with businesses, universities, communities, and our nation’s workers. The Department touches the daily lives of the American people in many ways, with a wide range of responsibilities in the areas of trade, economic development, technology, entrepreneurship and business development, environmental stewardship, and statistical research and analysis. The DOC Library provides resources and research support to Commerce employees so they are better able to fulfill the mission of the Department. The collections include both print and electronic materials and cover subject areas related to business, economics, trade, legislation, law, and government publications. The library requires certain high-level skill sets in order to successfully process the subject-specific materials in the collection. Based on the size of the collection, the library only requires part-time cataloging assistance. The DOC Library needs a Contractor to perform original and copy cataloging of current and archival monographs, serials, and electronic resources for its collections. The Contractor will be responsible for adding, modifying, and discarding metadata in the online integrated library and the digital asset management system. Many items in the collection are damaged or deteriorating, and will require the Contractor to repair or recommend storage options based on current archival “best practices”. The Contractor will perform basic technical work to prepare resources for shelving. The Contractor shall perform these activities in various circumstances: when creating records for new materials; when upgrading lower-level records to full-level; when updating records to meet current bibliographic standards; when updating records for continuations of all kinds (i.e. serials, multipart items, government publications, newspapers) to include new bibliographic and/or holdings information; in handling referrals and requests for corrections from Library staff in the course of problem-solving; as a result of review/revision; on a project basis. 2. Description of Tasks and Deliverables (i) Contractor shall perform original and copy cataloging of current monographs and serials (including title changes), and electronic resources for the DOC Library’s collections. (ii) Contractor shall provide original and copy cataloging of archival monographs, serials (including title changes), and electronic resources for the Department of Commerce and other government publications. (iii) Contractor shall provide original cataloging for legislative histories in print and digitized formats. (iv) Contractor shall recommend and enter metadata for legislative histories and other publications into the on-line integrated library system (ILS) and the digital asset management system. (v) Contractor shall prepare and upload digitized resources into the digital asset management system. (vi) Contractor shall create, modify, and maintain serial check-in records in the on-line integrated library system (ILS). (vii) Contractor shall maintain the ILS records by checking weekly reports generated by the ILS and correcting typographical errors, cataloging errors, errors in ISBD punctuation, and any other errors noted. (viii) Contractor shall modify current catalog records to reflect changes in print retention, electronic holdings, subject fields, location, call number, and deaccession. (iv) Contractor shall identify damaged or fragile materials and repair or recommend storage options based on current archival “best practices”. (x) Contractor shall provide limited technical processing (including only labels, label covers, and barcodes). 3. Performance Standards: Of primary importance the Contractor’s performance is catalog integrity, so performance of the various component activities must be as near to perfect as is possible (95%). Correcting errors, resolving problems caused by a wide variety of bibliographic and treatment conflicts and database cleanup to clarify the library’s holdings are “end-of-the-line” activities, and there are generally no avenues for further referral, except for those matters which involve departures from standard library policies. These catalog management functions, therefore, are characterized by the relative lack of definable and measurable standards and outside indicators that can be used to gauge performance. As a result, the Contractor’s performance shall be evaluated by a broad-based review process which takes into account the source of assignments, difficulty of problems, impact of problems and their resolutions, feedback from other library staff, and the overall condition of the catalog and collection as the result of regulation and repair activities. The COR shall inspect performance using spot checks of newly added or modified records, visual inspection of print materials processed for shelving in the archives or regular collection, and volume of assigned work completed when compared to the difficulty of the task. 4. Skill or Relevant Experience Requirements Key personnel must have the following skills and experience: • A Masters Degree in Library Science or Library and Information Science from an institution accredited by the American Library Association. • Ten (10) years of recent professional library experience in original cataloging for monographs, serials, government publications, and electronic resources using the following: o Anglo American Cataloging Rules (AARCII) and current updates; o Library of Congress Rule Interpretations (most current); o Library of Congress Classification Scheme; o Library of Congress Subject Headings; o MARC Bibliographic Format. • Ten (10) years of recent professional library experience using integrated library automation systems. • Ten (10) years of recent professional library experience providing cataloging and serials services in a special library, government, corporate, or non-profit setting in which the primary duties were processing and cataloging a variety of print and electronic materials in the subject areas of business, economics, trade, legislation, law, and government publications. • Five (5) years of professional library experience using OCLC. • Five (5) years of recent professional library experience using SirsiDynix Symphony, specifically using SmartPort, creating, modifying, and discarding records, and creating and maintaining serial control records. • Two (2) years of professional library experience using SirsiDynix Enterprise/Portfolio (digital asset management system). 5. Government-furnished Resources A computer networked to a printer with the appropriate ILS and digital asset management system software, as well as Internet access, will be available. The Library will purchase all labels, label covers, barcodes, and any archival supplies the Contractor recommends that the COR deems reasonable to repair or store archival materials. The Library will provide copies of the Library of Congress Classification Schedules and the MARC Bibliographic Format. 6. Period of Performance The period of performance for the Base Period is from 9/1/2012 through 8/31/2013 with two (2) one-year options following the Base Period. 7. Required Working Hours The Contractor is expected to work during normal business hours (8am-5pm), on a part-time basis as needed, averaging 16 hours per week as authorized by the COR, but not to exceed 40 hours per work week. 8.
