Selection Criteria The Coast Guard reserves the right to select for CRADA participants all, some, or none of the proposals received in response to this notice. The Coast Guard will provide no funding for reimbursement of proposal development costs. Proposals (or any other material) submitted in response to this notice will not be returned. Proposals submitted are expected to be unclassified and have no more than four single-sided pages (excluding cover page and resumes). The Coast Guard will select proposals at its sole discretion on the basis of: (1) How well they communicate an understanding of, and ability to meet, the proposed CRADA’s goal; and (2) How well they address the following criteria: (a) Technical capability to support the non-Federal party contributions described; and (b) Resources available for supporting the non-Federal party contributions described. Currently, the Coast Guard is considering General Dynamics for participation in this CRADA. This consideration is based on General Dynamics’: (1) Expertise, experience, and interest in asset tracking and nonverbal communications exchange technology; and (2) capability to provide the significant contributions required for the CRADA work. However, we do not wish to exclude other viable participants from this or future similar CRADAs. This is a technology transfer/ development effort. Presently, the Coast Guard has no plan to acquire asset tracking and non-verbal communications exchange technology. Since the goal of this CRADA is to identify and investigate the advantages, disadvantages, performance, costs, and other issues associated with using asset tracking and non-verbal communications exchange technology, and not to set future Coast Guard acquisition requirements for such technology, non-Federal CRADA VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:42 Mar 30, 2012 Jkt 226001 partners will not be excluded from any future Coast Guard procurements based solely on their participation within this CRADA.
