THIS DETERMINATION MUST BE SUPPORTED WITH FULL JUSTIFICATION FOR SOLE SOURCE FROM THE CUSTOMER. WHEN THE CUSTOMER DESCRIBES AN ITEM WITH A PURCHASE DESCRIPTION WHICH LIMITS THE AVAILABILITY TO ONE SOURCE, THE JUSTIFICATION MUST EXPLAIN WHY THE ITEM IS THE ONLY ONE THAT WILL MEET THE GOVERNMENT'S REQUIREMENT. STATEMENTS SUCH AS "ONLY KNOWN SOURCE" OR "ONLY SOURCE WHICH CAN MEET THE REQUIRED DELIVERY DATE" ARE INADEQUATE TO SUPPORT A SOLE SOURCE PURCHASE. THE CUSTOMER SHALL PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION: PURCHASE REQUEST OR REQUISITION NUMBER PROJECT/TASK NUMBER ESTIMATED AMOUNT 2116446PCZ569 BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SUPPLIES OR SERVICES REQUIRED, AND THE INTENDED USE: A Purchase Request will be issued for the purchase of: 3 National Instruments (NI) PXI-5105, 8CH, Digitizers PN: 779685-02 and their respective required compliant calibration support. The parts requested will be used with the NI PXI-e Test Set located in the C3CEN ERF ATE section. UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS THAT LIMIT AVAILABILITY TO ONLY ONE SOURCE, WITH THE REASON NO OTHER SUPPLIES OR SERVICES CAN BE USED: National Instruments (OEM) is the only manufacturer meeting system requirements for form, fit, function, configuration, records, and integration with the proprietary National Instruments Test Set. Any variances would have a negative impact by impairing these test sets from functioning, which would adversely impact Quality Assurance testing of assigned Circuit Card Assemblies. REASON THAT SUGGESTED SOURCE IS THE ONLY SOURCE WHICH CAN PROVIDE THE SUPPLIES OR SERVICES: National Instruments is the OEM and the only manufacturer of parts that are acceptable as replacement/new parts. Any model other than National Instruments will not fit/operate properly with the PXI-e test set, and increases the possibility of damage to the test set. Items are to be NEW. EXPLAIN WHY AN ADEQUATE PURCHASE DESCRIPTION OR OTHER INFORMATION SUITABLE TO SOLICIT BY FULL AND OPEN COMPETITION HAS NOT BEEN DEVELOPED OR ARE NOT AVAILABLE:Adequate item information, documentation, and specifications are not available to develop an appropriate purchase description for full and open competition.         PROVIDE A STATEMENT OF ACTIONS, IF ANY, THE GOVERNMENT MAY TAKE TO REMOVE OR OVERCOME ANY BARRIERS TO COMPETITION BEFORE FUTURE ACQUISITIONS ARE REQUIRED: Recommend no actions be taken at this time to overcome barriers barring full and open competition as it is not planned, nor practical to replace the PXI-e Automated Test Set.

The PXI based ATE by N.I. Inc. is used in support of centralized depot testing and fault finding analysis on a wide array of U.S. Coast Guard owned electronic circuit cards used in Navigation, Communications and Propulsion Control systems. It is intended to award a requirements contract for a base year and three or four optional one-year terms to National Instruments Inc. for continued warrantee coverage. This purchase provides repair, replacement and calibration for both past and recently purchased National Instruments PXI hardware, as well as for the hardware we obtained from LSU via property transfer. UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS THAT LIMIT AVAILABILITY TO ONLY ONE SOURCE, WITH THE REASON NO OTHER SUPPLIES OR SERVICES CAN BE USED:National Instruments® is the OEM for CG owned PXI equipment. Schematics, diagnostic procedures, imbedded firmware and the software required to access imbedded firmware for diagnoses is extremely complex, encrypted and proprietary to which the CG does not have right or access to. REASON THAT SUGGESTED SOURCE IS THE ONLY SOURCE WHICH CAN PROVIDE THE SUPPLIES OR SERVICES: National Instruments is the only known proprietor that owns the rights to their manufactured systems and diagnostic equipment. The Coast Guard does not have the rights to share this information with other commercial entities. EXPLAIN WHY AN ADEQUATE PURCHASE DESCRIPTION OR OTHER INFORMATION SUITABLE TO SOLICIT BY FULL AND OPEN COMPETITION HAS NOT BEEN DEVELOPED OR ARE NOT AVAILABLE: The material technical specifications and supplementary data are proprietary to the OEM and cannot be provided to other manufacturers, which eliminates any opportunities for full and open competition. The PXI based ATE System is critical to U.S. Coast Guard depot level electronics repair. Changes in design could lead to system malfunctions and negative impact to centralized depot repair operations. This purchase reduces the "downtime" of our state of the art, automated electronics test system to the lowest level possible while ensuring that all components of this system are in current calibration. This service agreement is the one best action we can take to provide the U.S. Coast Guard fleet with high quality circuit card testing in a smooth, uninterrupted manner.. PROVIDE A STATEMENT OF ACTIONS, IF ANY, THE GOVERNMENT MAY TAKE TO REMOVE OR OVERCOME ANY BARRIERS TO COMPETITION BEFORE FUTURE ACQUISITIONS ARE REQUIRED: Recommend no actions be taken at this time to overcome barriers barring full and open competition. The National Instruments PXI System replaces older, legacy systems for which support is no longer commercially available   SIGNATURE AND TITLE OF CUSTOMER CODE TELEPHONE NUMBER DATEAnthony Kritsings 26May 26, 2016 SIGNATURE OF CONTRACTING OFFICER CODE TELEPHONE NUMBER DATE James A.
