Solicitation N00421-16-T-0185 is issued as intent to sole source. The Government intends to purchase on a firm fixed-price basis, and to solicit and negotiate the proposed purchase order on a sole source basis with PAC Corporation, under the authority implemented by Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) by FAR Part 13.106-1(b). PAC Corporation is the only manufacturer of parts for use in the sulfur/nitrogen analyzer. Pac Corporation is also the only known source of the software used in the instrument for processing the analyzed data as the software must be compatible with the instrument it operates. The government will not be able to meet the project requirements if a competitive procurement is made.
***Basis for Award***
Solicitation closing date/time is firm; proposals received after the deadline will not be accepted. Selected bidder's judgment to submit proposal on the final day of solicitation and requesting for an extension will not be granted. Extension is solely within the discretion of the government agent. Interested bidders must address their questions, concern, etc... while solicitation is ongoing (active). Your quote must contain enough technical information i.e. data sheet, drawing, specification, etc... as it will only be evaluated based on the information provided. Additional documents, questions, concerns, modifications, or any other information in relation to your quote will not be entertained or accepted when posting was already concluded. The award will be made on the basis of lowest evaluated price of proposals meeting or exceeding the acceptability standards for non-cost factor. This is a firm fixed-price procurement; therefore, the initial offer should represent the vendor's best quote in terms of price and technical acceptability. A determination by the Government not to accept the proposal for not meeting the minimum requirement is solely within the discretion of the Government.
ONLY New Equipment, NO Remanufactured, and all items must be covered under the manufacturer's warranty. Similar or Substitute products will not be accepted.
