This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA), which sets forth research areas of interest to the Defense Forensics and Biometrics Agency (DFBA), is issued under the provisions of paragraph 6.102(d)(2) of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which provides for the competitive selection of proposals. Proposals submitted in response to this BAA and selected for award are considered to be the result of full and open competition and in full compliance with the provisions of Public Law 98-369, “The Competition in Contracting Act of 1984” and subsequent amendments. The Department of Army’s Office of the Provost Marshall General (OPMG) recently established the Defense Forensics and Biometrics Agency (DFBA). This umbrella agency serves as the Executive Agent for Department of Defense (DoD) forensics and biometrics casework, research, and new capabilities development. The DFBA forensic and biometric capabilities assist DoD in combating networks that threaten warfighters by denying criminals and adversaries anonymity.
The requested proposals should focus on DFBA activities and needs of the Program’s other customers (AFMES, DC3, JPAC-CIL). Forensic research proposals should focus on the creation of new and improved field or laboratory functional capabilities that result in faster, more robust, more informative, less costly, or less labor-intensive recognition, identification, collection, preservation, and/or analysis of forensic evidence.
