The NASA/SSC Acquisition Management Office intends to issue a Best Value Request for Proposal (RFP) for the project entitled "Fabrication, inspection, testing, and delivery of Chemical Steam Generators for A-3 Altitude Test Stand" to be delivered to the John C. Stennis Space Center, Mississippi. The work to be performed under this requirement consists of providing all labor, equipment, and materials necessary for the fabrication, inspection, testing, and delivery of twenty-seven (27) Chemical Steam Generators (CSGs) to Stennis Space Center Building 2204.
The CSGs required are a design that was produced for White Sands Test Facility in the 1960's that is a proven design. The most similar component to these CSG's is a small regeneratively cooled rocket combustion chamber or gas generator. The concept is basically a small combustion chamber similar to a rocket engine combustion chamber that burns isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and oxygen with a water diluent to produce the steam. This project will require detailed machining, pipe modification and welding, plate steel forming and welding, detailed welding including some thin wall sheet metal welding. Cleaning for high pressure oxygen service will be required. The CSGs will be built per ASME Code requirements but will not require a code stamp. Testing will include inspections and proof testing as required but will not include a functional test or hot fire. The CSGs shall comply with codes referenced in the RFP and shall be fabricated, cleaned, and tested per the requirements in the subject specifications available on CDROM only as noted below.
FOB is destination. The government intends to issue subject solicitation (RFP) under Commercial Procedures in accordance with FAR Parts 12 and 15.

The required period of performance or lead-time for delivery is fourteen (14) months from the effective date of contract award. The firm delivery date shall be identified in any subsequent award.
