Procurement Contract
Category of Funding Activity:Regional Development
Category Explanation:
CFDA Number(s):12.300
Eligible Applicants:Others (see text field entitled “Additional Information on Eligibility” for clarification)
Additional Information on Eligibility:Inasmuch as this solicitation supports a manufacturing program established by the Secretary of Defense under 10 U.S.C. § 2521, eligibility is limited to persons and organizations that are part of the national technology and industrial base as that term is defined in 10 U.S.C. § 2500. All responsible sources within the national technology and industrial base from academia, industry, and the research community may submit proposals under this BAA. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Institutions (MIs) are encouraged to submit proposals and join others in submitting proposals. However, no portion of this BAA will be set aside for HBCUs/MIs, small businesses, or other socio-economic participation. All businesses, both small and large, are encouraged to submit proposals and compete for funding consideration. Eligible organizations should have a demonstrated ability to bring government, industry, and academia (to include Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Institutions (MIs)) together in an environment where joint development and commercialization of materials, processes, and products can occur. For example, such an ability would be reflected in an academic and industrial membership structure with well-defined royalty, licensing, and other revenue generation methods; effective mechanisms and policies to ensure robust participation by small and medium-sized businesses, and by large enterprises; and well-structured and coherent Intellectual Property management across the range of contractual research and development arrangements. Organizations should have a coherent, coordinated collection of distributed facilities where focused, collaborative research, development, design, prototyping, pilot manufacturing, and workforce development can take place. Federally Funded Research & Development Centers (FFRDCs), including Department of Energy National Laboratories, are not eligible to receive awards under this BAA. However, teaming arrangements between FFRDCs and eligible principal Offerors are allowed so long as such arrangements are permitted under the sponsoring agreement between the Government and the specific FFRDC. Navy laboratories, military universities and warfare centers as well as other Department of BAA-10 Defense and civilian agency laboratories are also not eligible to receive awards under this BAA, and should not directly submit either white papers or full proposals in response to this BAA. If any such organization is interested in one or more of the programs described herein, the organization should contact the ONR Technical POC to discuss its area of interest. University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs) are eligible to submit proposals under this BAA unless precluded from doing so by their Department of Defense UARC contract. Teams are also encouraged and may submit proposals. However, Offerors must be willing to cooperate and exchange software, data, and other information in an integrated program with other contractors.

Description:The Department of Defense Manufacturing Technology Program (ManTech) is the Defense Department’s investment mechanism for staying at the forefront of defense-essential manufacturing capability. The Program develops technologies and processes for the affordable and timely production and sustainment of defense systems. The Program impacts all phases of acquisition. It aids in achieving reduced acquisition and total ownership costs by developing, maturing, and transitioning key manufacturing technologies. ONR will focus investments on those that have the most benefit to the warfighter and include quick-hitting, rapid response projects to address immediate manufacturing needs.The ManTech Program targets the needs of our warfighters and weapon system programs by helping to find and implement affordable low-risk solutions. The ManTech Program:· Provides the crucial link between technology invention and development and industrial applications;· Matures and validates emerging manufacturing technologies to support low-risk implementation in industry and DoD facilities, for example depots and shipyards;· Addresses production issues from system development through transition to production and sustainment;· Disseminates information concerning improved manufacturing improvement concepts, including information on such matters as best manufacturing practices, product data exchange specifications, computer-aided acquisition and logistics support, and rapid acquisition of manufactured parts; and· Sustains and enhances the skills and capabilities of the manufacturing work force.Using the authority of the Manufacturing Technology Program codified at 10 U.S.C. §2521, the Department of Defense (DoD) established a group of manufacturing innovation institutes in technology areas with relevance to military systems. These institutes are executed and managed by the services (Army, Air Force, and Navy). Each institute consists of members, including private companies, nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, federal laboratories, and state and local governments. These DoD-managed institutes are also involved in the Department of Commerce Manufacturing USA network as part of a long-term collaborative partnership-of-choice in light of a common purpose.The overall goal of this effort is to continue to support Manufacturing Technology projects that offer potential for advancement and improvement of military operations in areas that address the focus areas of the ManTech Program, as noted in the above paragraphs. The long-term goals of this BAA are to create market expansion; and components and systems utilizing new optimized high performing material systems across defense, aerospace, automotive, energy, and consumer products industries.The focus of this BAA is primarily on projects that continue to advance the systems engineering approach needed for the design, fabrication, and manufacture of structural components to address challenges in system weight, performance, affordability, and/or survivability. The foundation of this approach should include the integration of materials information, captured in computational tools, with engineering product performance analysis and manufacturing-process simulation termed commonly as Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME). From this foundation it is expected the integration of manufacturing process information and product performance information utilizing the full range of engineering and analytical tools, processes, and principles to improve efficiency and effectiveness of their integrated approach. The intent is to bring together materials designers, materials suppliers, product designers, and manufacturers to collaborate on the design, production, and commercialization of novel affordable, manufacturable systems. Projects may include basic and applied research, technology and component development, and prototyping; but may also focus on manufacturing supply-chain technical support and integration, workforce development, and manufacturing education.Prior to preparing proposals, potential offerors are encouraged strongly to contact the ONR technical point of contact (POC) identified for this program.
