NASA Calls For Comments On Ares V Draft RFP

Interested Companies May Submit Proposals For Lunar Vehicle

NASA has released a draft request for proposals, or RFP, regarding Phase I of its Ares V launch vehicle. The rocket will perform heavy lift and cargo functions as part of the next generation of spacecraft that will return humans to the moon. Phase I will define operational concepts, develop requirements, and refine design concepts for the Ares V.

This document is a draft of the final version of the RFP for Phase I, expected in January 2009. By responding to this draft RFP, potential offerors can provide input on the requirements, small business goals and contract structure.

The industry input received will be combined with NASA's expertise for potential inclusion in the final version of the RFP for Phase I, which will ask for bids on five Ares V work packages.

A pre-solicitation conference is scheduled for December 3, 2008, at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. The conference is designed for information sharing about the Ares V Phase I for potential offerors.
