Discussion CRADAs are authorized under 15 U.S.C. 3710(a).1 A CRADA promotes the 1 The statute confers this authority on the head of each Federal agency. The Secretary of DHS’s VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:00 Aug 28, 2019 Jkt 247001 transfer of technology to the private sector for commercial use, as well as specified research or development efforts that are consistent with the mission of the Federal parties to the CRADA. The Federal party or parties agree with one or more non-Federal parties to share research resources, but the Federal party does not contribute funding. CRADAs are not procurement contracts. Care is taken to ensure that CRADAs are not used to circumvent the contracting process. CRADAs have a specific purpose and should not be confused with procurement contracts, grants, and other type of agreements. Under this CRADA, the R&D Center will collaborate with a non-Federal participant. Together, the R&D Center and the non-Federal participant will collect information/data for performance, reliability, maintenance requirements, human systems integration and other data on using smart phone’s location services for geolocation. We anticipate the Coast Guard’s contributions under this CRADA will include the following: (1) Research by the parties under this CRADA will be performed offsite at Callyo 2009 Corporation’s facilities and the RDC. (2) Provide web based support at the following locations: CG Sector New York: Staten Island, NY CG Sector Long Island Sound: New Haven, CT CG Sector Boston: Boston, MA CG Sector Southeastern New England: Woods Hole, MA CG Sector Northern New England: South Portland, ME We anticipate that the non-Federal participant’s contributions under this CRADA will include the following: (1) Provide technical support, training and maintenance throughout the period of performance to ensure maximum availability and utility of Callyo 2009 Corporation i911 web based solution. (2) Deployment of the Callyo 2009 Corporation i911 capability, including the interface to the RapidSOS NG911 Clearinghouse, at each CG Sector. The Coast Guard reserves the right to select for CRADA participants all, some, or no proposals submitted for this CRADA. The Coast Guard will provide no funding for reimbursement of proposal development costs. Proposals and any other material submitted in response to this notice will not be returned. Proposals submitted are authority is delegated to the Coast Guard and other DHS organizational elements by DHS Delegation No. 0160.1, para. II.B.34. PO 00000 Frm 00044 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 expected to be unclassified and have no more than five single-sided pages. 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 entered a CRADA with Callyo 2009 Corporation for participation in this CRADA. This consideration is based on the fact that Callyo 2009 Corporation has demonstrated its technical ability as the developer, manufacturer, and integrator of cellular direction finding equipment. However, we do not wish to exclude other viable participants from this or future similar CRADAs. The CRADA with Callyo 2009 Corporation is based on market research and visits to vendors with advertised expertise in this operational use of cellular phone geolocation technology. This is a technology assessment effort. The goal for the Coast Guard of this CRADA is to better understand the advantages, disadvantages, required technology enhancements, performance, costs, and other issues associated with cellular direction finding technologies. Special consideration will be given to small business firms/consortia, and preference will be given to business units located in the U.S. This document is issued under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 552(a).
