Expected Number of Awards:
This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is issued to facilitate the collection of lidar and derived elevation data for the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP). The BAA continues the USGS¿s long standing approach to elevation data acquisition through a combination of contracting through the USGS Geospatial Products and Services Contracts (GPSC) and partner acquisitions. The BAA is meant to provide increased visibility to these existing processes for data acquisition partnerships to the broadest stakeholder community possible. Proposals are invited from applicants who wish to propose a partnership with 3DEP to fund lidar data acquisition and the creation of lidar-derived elevation products. Applicants may fund an acquisition project through the USGS Geospatial Products and Services Contract (GPSC) or they may request 3DEP funds to apply towards a lidar data acquisition project where the requesting partner uses their own contracting vehicle. Federal agencies, state and local governments, tribes, academic institutions and the private sector are eligible to submit proposals. The Government will review proposals based on the project¿s alignment with the evaluation criteria identified in section VI.A. of this BAA.
