This will be an advertisement for a research contract to develop the welding procedures and consumables needed to make good electroslag welds for joining high performance steel (HPS) plates for both fracture-critical and non-fracture-critical members. It is expected that the research will make electroslag welds and subject them to American Welding Society test protocols and fracture toughness tests. The end results will be recommended changes to fabrication specifications to provide better guidance for steel bridge fabrication using electroslag welding.

Title V, of Public Law 100-656 requires that Federal agencies make available its Procurement Forecast to the Small Business Administration (SBA) and to interested business owners. The forecast listing is not intended to be all-inclusive. The Forecast is one of many tools available to small businesses. All projected procurements are subject to revision or cancellation. Final decisions on the extent of competition, small business participation, estimated value, or any aspect of the procurement action will not be made until each procurement is initiated. The forecast data is for planning purposes, does not represent a pre-solicitation synopsis, does not constitute an invitation for bid or request for proposal, and is not a commitment by the government to purchase the desired products and services. Actual solicitation notices will be posted on FedBizOpps as prescribed by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR).
