    NASA/JSC has a requirement to examine the current state of Orbital 
    Debris research in the U.S. This review will focus on the ability of 
    such research to support orbital debris mitigation policies of the 
    U.S government and to protect U.S. government and commercial assets 
    in space. The contractor shall deliver a brief status report (a 
    minimum of one page and a maximum of three) summarizing the 
    activities under this agreement. This status report shall be 
    submitted at the completion of this activity. The period of 
    performance shall be a 14 month period. NASA/JSC intends to purchase 
    this service from The National Research Council, through the 
    Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board (ASEB). The National Academy 
    of Sciences published a comprehensive report on the state of the 
    space debris environment and methods for limiting the growth of space 
    debris in 1995, under title "Orbital Debris, A Technical assessment". 
    This report was the product of a multi-year study by the National 
    Research Council's multi-national Committee on Space Debris under the 
    ASEB. The National Research Council, through the ASEB, is uniquely 
    qualified to perform the tasks and produce a study which will carry 
    the desired scientific credentials. The Government does not intend to 
    acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12. See Note 26. Interested 
    organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to 
    perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not 
    later than 4:30 p.m. local time on July 22, 2006. Such 
    capabilities/qualifications will be evaluated solely for the purpose 
    of determining whether or not to conduct this procurement on a 
    competitive basis. A determination by the Government not to compete 
    this proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon 
    responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the 
    government. Oral communications are not acceptable in response to 
    this notice. All responsible sources may submit an offer which shall 
    be considered by the agency. An Ombudsman has been appointed. See 
    NASA Specific Note "B". Any referenced notes may be viewed at the
