R — “Technical Inquiry and Technical Data Maintenance for NREL’s Alternative Fuels Data Center and Clean Cities Program Technical Assistance” JMT23239 020113 Judy Thompson (Powers), Subcontract Administrator, Email judi.powers@nrel.gov – Patrick Schurott, Senior Supervisor, Email patrick.schurott@nrel.gov BACKGROUND
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL’s) Deployment and Market Transformation Center (D&MT) is responsible for providing support of several activities of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) related to accelerating the use of alternative fuels and other advanced vehicle and fuel technologies. Providing unbiased technical information, tools, and resources is a requirement of several pieces of federal legislation, including the Alternative Motor Fuels Act (AMFA) of 1988, the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, and the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 1992 and 1995. NREL has the lead responsibility for providing this technicalresource, which has taken the form of vehicle and fleet evaluations, data collection and research, development of on-line tools and resources, and overall integration and management of this base of knowledge in the Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC).

In particular, NREL efforts support the Clean Cities Program and Clean Cities coalitions and coordinators in their localized deployment efforts to assist local fleets in converting to the use of alternative fuel and advanced vehicles. Assistance takes the form of a wide variety of technical and outreach activities to support the displacement of petroleum in transportation by increasing understanding and awareness of alternative and advanced fuel and vehicle technologies and the sharing of best practices among coalitions by providing all necessary technical information and resources. Resources are provided via a variety of methods to include but not limited to the AFDC web site, other relevant industry websites, through the Clean Cities Technical Response Service (TRS) as well via NREL staff.

OBJECTIVE

NREL is seeking one or more organizations to assist with inquiry response, writing and editing both print and web content as well as the maintenance and management of data related to the field of alternative fuel and advanced vehicles, fuel production and feedstock, and fuel and vehicle related DOE programs. The major tasks associated with this effort include:

• Responding to inquiries ranging from general to complex and specialized in nature, while providing appropriate technical information and resources. Inquiries may be from Clean Cities stakeholders or Coordinators, industry, researchers, analysts, DOE, National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) and NREL or the public, and will be related to deployment, production, distribution and use of alternative and advanced fuels and vehicles.
• Assisting NREL in the maintenance and management of database content related to alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies. Key areas of focus include relevant federal, state and local legislation and incentives, fueling stations and information on alternative fuel and advanced vehicles.
• Assisting NREL with maintenance of existing web content as well as the creation and/or development of both print and web content on alternative and advanced fuels and vehicles.

Tasks will require identifying resources and information about, and maintaining knowledge of, the deployment of alternative fuels and advanced fuel and vehicle technologies, the related industries, and applications through reading and researching, Web searches, electronic newsletters, industry contacts, etc. For the purposes of this activity, alternative fuels include those established by EPAct, including ethanol, natural gas, propane, electricity, biodiesel, and hydrogen. Examples of advanced fuel and vehicle technologies to be covered include other fuel blends such as E10 (10% ethanol/90% gasoline) and B20 (20% biodiesel/80% diesel), other biodiesel blends, diesel, light- and heavy-duty hybrid electric vehicles, light- and medium-duty passenger diesel vehicles, idle reduction technologies, fuel efficient vehicles, and other fuel economy measures.

AREAS OF EXPERTISE

Individuals or organizations responding to this Sources Sought request must describe capabilities, attributes, and skills in the following specific areas of expertise:

Technical Inquiry Response
To support NREL in this effort, an organization must demonstrate the capability to provide timely response and knowledgeable, experienced technical staff to field inquiries via the use of a sophisticated phone system.

In addition, VOA is also interested in Internet Writers, Editors, Web Designers and Graphic Designers. Furthermore, the BBG’s Office of Cuba Broadcasting (OCB), which broadcasts radio and television programming in Spanish to Cuba, is seeking qualified sources for similar free-lance assignments on the same “as-needed” contract basis as VOA, but with OCB’s free-lance work assignment locations being Miami, FL or at overseas locations. The following general information pertains to all of the above-listed VOA and OCB free-lance assignments: 1) Assignments are performed on a contract basis. 2) Most VOA assignments require working in Washington, DC; while some assignments require working at IBB studios at overseas locations. Most OCB assignments require working in Miami, FL; while some assignments require working at overseas locations. 3) Contractor candidates may be required to undergo a background security investigation and successfully pass the security clearance process in order to receive work assignments. 4) Contractor candidates must be willing to work on an “as-required” basis, depending upon the VOA’s or OCB’s broadcasting needs. Some broadcasting activities require working irregular hours – such as very early in the morning or late in the evening – depending on the broadcasting schedule. 5) Videotape editor candidates should have at least two (2) years experience as a videotape editor in either a commercial or Government television production facility, utilizing modern computerized editing systems and videotape machines. 6) Free-lance assignments are contracted for strictly on an “as needed” basis. The VOA and OCB make no guarantees on the amount of work assignments that contractors can expect to receive. 7) The Government is obligated to inspect all contractors performed work to insure that it fully satisfies the Government’s requirements. The Government is further obligated to reject all work that fails to meet Government-specified requirements.

Contractors should note that all work shall be performed in accordance with the standards prescribed in the attached “VOA Journalistic Code”. Failure to comply with these legally mandated standards may result in immediate termination of the contract for default.

The following criteria, depending on the type of broadcasting services being contracted, are used as appropriate by VOA and OCB to evaluate prospective contractors: (1) Radio or television broadcast or Internet news experience, including translating and adapting broadcast scripts. Please specifically note that for broadcasting work, the VOA requires that prospective contractors take a voice and writing test. For translation or camera work, VOA requires that prospective contractors take a translation and/or on-camera test; (2) Extensive knowledge of the target broadcast language(s) and the ability to adapt English material into the target language; (3) Ability to produce work that demonstrates a keen knowledge of national and international issues; (4) Ability to explain complex issues in clear, logical terms that can be understood by VOA’s and OCB’s worldwide audiences; (5) Ability to operate highly specialized and complex broadcast television equipment, such as audio consoles, character generators, wave-form monitors and vectorscopes, and videotape machines; (6) Highly developed production skills, such as: assembling/coordinating material, monitoring program segments for proper sequencing and integration, ensuring continuity, editing broadcast scripts as necessary, etc. ; (7) Ability to research, select, and prepare material to provide background and highlight key elements of VOA or OCB web news reports, prepare and encode multimedia enhancements, and either prepare or request and coordinate the preparation and encoding of additional streamed media, and ensure compliance with copyright restrictions; (8) Documented knowledge (i.e., education/training and/or practical experience) of the principles and practices of journalistic writing, editing, and Internet publishing; (9) Computer skills required; (10) Ability to operate a wide variety of digital broadcast equipment; and (11) Ability to read and analyze incoming correspondence to determine information requested and prepare a responsive and personalized respond.

Prospective contractors are hereby notified that the basis for award will be based on best value; with technical evaluation factors (i.e., strength of prospective contractor’s resume, approach to performing work) being more important than the prospective contractor’s proposed hourly price. Contractors shall submit their price proposals based on an hourly and/or an assignment basis.
