Attachment 4: Single Source Justification for SAP under $150K

OFOC SOP Revision 05 Page 1 of 1

Original Date: 03/22/11

Revision 05 Date: 05/02/2016

JUSTIFICATION FOR SINGLE SOURCE AWARDS IAW FAR 13.106-1

(OVER MICRO-PURCHASE THRESHOLD($3.5K) BUT NOT EXCEEDING THE SAT ($150K))

IAW FAR13.104, COs must promote competition to the maximum extent practicable to obtain supplies and services from the source whose offer is the most advantageous to the Government, considering the administrative cost of the purchase. When competition is not practicable, IAW FAR13.106-1(b), COs solicit from a single source for purchases not exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold. COs may solicit from one source if the CO determines that the circumstances of the contract action deem only one source reasonably available (e.g., urgency, exclusive licensing agreements, brand-name or industrial mobilization). IAW FAR13.106-3(b)(3),COs are required to include additional statements explaining the absence of competition (see 13.106-1 for brand name purchases) if only one source is solicited and the acquisition does not exceed the simplified acquisition threshold (does not apply to an acquisition of utility services available from only one source) or supporting the award decision if other than price-related factors were considered in selecting the supplier. This template when completed can be used to document single source awards IAW FAR13.106-3(b)(3). Note: Statements such as "only known source" or "only source which can meet the required delivery date" are inadequate to support a sole source purchase.

ACQUISITION PLAN ACTION ID:

VA246-18-AP-0311

1A. PROJECT/TASK No.

1B. ESTIMATED AMOUNT:

$62,582.10

2. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SUPPLIES OR SERVICES REQUIRED AND THE INTENDED USE:

The Thermocool SmartTouch SF catheter combines the contact force from the SmartTouch catheter along with the advanced porous irrigation technology of the SF catheter. The tip of the catheter contains a precision spring and sensors that can transmit the micro movements of the spring to the Carto System SmartTouch software, which is integrated into the Carto 3 system.

3. UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS THAT LIMIT AVAILABILITY TO ONLY ONE SOURCE, WITH THE REASON NO OTHER SUPPLIES OR SERVICES CAN BE USED:

THIS IS AN EMRERGENCY REQUIREMENT PER FAR 6.302-2, Unusual and Compelling Emergency.

The Thermocool SmartTouch catheter is only compatible with the Carto 3 system in use at the Durham VAMC. The Carto 3 system uses both magnetic and impedance based technology compared to competitive technology, which only uses impedance data to localize catheter location. Johnson & Johnson is the only manufacturer, distributor, and holds proprietary rights to the required catheter supplies that will be utilized on the exiting lab systems.

4. DESCRIPTION OF MARKET RESEARCH CONDUCTED AND RESULTS OR STATEMENT WHY IT WAS NOT CONDUCTED:

Market Research was performed by the Contract Specialist (CS) utilizing the World Wide Web, Google, GSA, FPDS, SAM, VIP, and teleconferences with subject matter experts and verbal communications with industry.

The CS found one (1) SDVOSB, Alliant Enterprises LLC, on VIP under the NAICS code 339112, keyword catheter.

When the CS called Alliant Enterprises it was discovered that they are not an authorized distributer of the requested catheters.

5. Contracting Officer's Certification: Purchase is approved in accordance with FAR13.106-1(b). I certify that the foregoing justification is accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief. Note: COs are required to make a determination of price reasonableness IAW FAR 13.106-3. See the Commercial Supply and Service SOP for Price Reasonableness templates.
