This project will use AASHTO 2016 Manual for Assessing Safety Hardware (MASH) to crash test and document a Steel-Backed Timber roadway barrier, transition, and terminal, and a Tubular Steel-Backed Timber bridge rail and transition common to the off-NHS system. This MASH testing will provide additional crashworthy alternative systems for local, federal, and tribal agencies and decrease occupant risk if they impact a device that meets current crash test standards. To successfully test these 5 elements a total of 15 crash tests are required.
All laboratories that perform crash testing for acceptance of roadside safety hardware must be accredited under ISO/IEC 17025:2005 General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratories. Market research has identified eleven sources that potentially qualify.

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).
