“3.1 INTRODUCTION

The Federal Government continues to seek new and improved ways of solving problems and driving innovation through the use of existing and/or emerging open innovation tools. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has used open innovation in the form of public challenges since the launch of the Centennial Challenges Program in 2005. Since 2011, NASA’s Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation (CoECI) has been maturing its experience with using Federal procurement authority to work with companies who conduct competitions and rely on other crowdsourcing approaches to deliver solutions or stimulate innovation. Across the agency, interest continues to grow in the broader use of crowdsourcing as a tool to help NASA meet its mission. NASA defines crowdsourcing as a method to obtain needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a group of individuals or organizations, especially from an online community. As a result, CoECI is seeking to expand the capabilities and expertise it provides to NASA, as well as other federal agencies, in the successful use of crowdsourcing…”

“3.2 SCOPE OF WORK

The scope of the NOIS2 contract includes the ability to solicit crowd-based solutions via contracts with multiple awardees using their commercial approaches to satisfy the SOW. The Contractors shall use one or more of the following methodologies to meet the requirements of specific task orders:

  1. Crowd-Based Challenges and Prize Competitions: Challenges and prize competitions are competition-based activities that use a focused problem-statement approach and crowdsourcing, rather than specifically identified individuals or groups, to obtain solutions and/or stimulate innovation.
  2. Crowd-Based Freelance Projects: Freelance is the process to select and manage individuals, teams, and/or talent pools (members of the crowd/community) best equipped to work on and deliver solutions and/or stimulate innovation.
  3. Crowd-Based Micro-Task Projects: Micro-tasking is the process of splitting a large job into small tasks that can be distributed, over the internet, to many people (members of the crowd/community).
  4. Other Crowd-Based Methods: Other crowdsourcing-based method not covered above that would provide solution(s) or stimulate innovation…”
