9 Government is looking for answers to research areas of interest articulated in Statements of Work. Streamlines the procurement process. Promotes the advancement of technology. Allows for competition of ideas/concepts throughout the established response period – 1 year. Benefits of BAA 9

10 Multiple submission periods possible. Can amend the BAA anytime to add or subtract information or requirements. Can remain open for up to a one year period of time. Each year thereafter consideration given for renewal if the need still exists. Benefits of BAA cont. 10

11 Focuses on scientific study and experimentation outlined in research and technical objectives. The Government drafts a statement of general research interest or a statement of the problem. The offerors draft their own statement of work and technical approach. BAA Focus 11

12 Proposals contain stand-alone unique solutions. They are not compared to one another. Each proposal presents a separate approach to solving the problem. There is technical competition in the marketplace of ideas; and this is what we hope to capture. The offeror is more engaged subsequent to the submission of a quad chart/white paper. Final evaluation is overall best value to the Government, past performance, and funding available. BAA Proposals 12

13 Proposals undergo a scientific review process. A proposal that is otherwise weak could be selected if it shows great technical promise or relevance to the NIH mission, such as a risky but perhaps revolutionary approach. BAA evaluation 13
