BAA – Preventing Nuclear and Radiological Terrorism

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Office of Procurement Operations (OPO), Domestic Nuclear Detection Office Acquisition Division (DNDOAD), is seeking proposals for the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Exploratory Research program in direct support of the DNDO mission.

This BAA covers only Exploratory Research and is intended to transform the basic building blocks of nuclear detection technology and supporting fields. Innovative concepts that successfully complete the exploratory R&D phases are typically brought to a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) demonstration – a minimal, but functional, realization of the technology for testing and demonstration, typically in a laboratory environment.

DNDO plans to make multiple awards under this BAA, with total funding in FY14 anticipated to be $3.2M with additional funding potentially available in later years.

Further details are available under Solicitation Number: HSHQDC-14-R-B0011. The white paper submission deadline is June 25, 2014. Full proposals are due October 31, 2014.
