Manufacturer: MI Technologies, LLC
Justification for Sole Source Only:
Calibration and Preventative Maintenance services for the F-15 Precision Radome Integrated System of Measurement (PRISM) range are required before 19August 2016. This includes the Precision Measurement Equipment (PME) calibration traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)Quality of the equipment at the Prism range. It also includes cleaning, lubrication, belt tensions check, reducer oil check, and replacement of worn or questionable components. Calibration and preventative maintenance of PRISM is mission critical to provide certified alignment to the F-15 Radomes.
The agency's minimum needs can only be satisfied by the unique supplies or services available from only the above cited source, which possess unique capabilities. The justification involves urgent and compelling reasons. Calibration and maintenance for the PRISM range is due 19 August 2016 and a long term support contract with MI Technologies is in the works but has not been completed yet and will not have been completed by the due date. The contractor MI Technologies is the only company that can satisfy the requirements in the required time frame because they are the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for the range and all the equipment in it and thus have all the data, equipment, and exptertise necessary to perform the required services.
