Notice of Proposed Contract Action for ICS/Help Desk Extension for the Fixed Base Weather Observation System (FBWOS) FMQ-23 Program
Procurement Instrument Identification Number:
Office: Air Force Life Cycle Materiel Command
Location: Hanscom AFB HBAK
NAICS: 334519 - Other Measuring and Controlling Device Manufacturing
This synopsis constitutes a Notice of Proposed Contract Action (NOCA), by the Air Force Life Cycle Materiel Command, Aerospace Management Division, Weather Contracting, AFLCMC/HBAK, Hanscom AFB, MA 01731, of the intent to negotiate a contract extension for twelve (12) months with Mesotech International Inc. for Interim Contractor Support (ICS) and Help Desk Support for all currently fielded FMQ-23 systems.
This synopsis is for a proposed contract, IAW FAR 5.201(b)(i), for which the Government intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source, IAW 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1) as implemented by FAR 6.302-1, "only one (1) responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements." Mesotech International Inc. is the only firm capable of meeting the Government's requirement for sustaining the fielded FMQ-23 systems. This is due to the fact that Mesotech is the only firm with the appropriate software rights to perform the regular maintenance required on the systems' server software that interfaces with Joint Environmental Toolkit (JET). To compete this effort would cause the Government to incur a substantial duplication of costs and unacceptable delay because another contractor would have to purchase the rights or develop another solution.
This notice does not constitute a Request for Proposal, nor does it restrict the Government as to the ultimate acquisition approach. No RFP will be issued based upon this Notice of Intent. The Government will not pay for any information received in response to this NOCA nor will the Government compensate a respondent for any costs incurred in developing the information provided to AFLCMC/HBAK. This notice is not a commitment from the Government.
An AFLCMC Ombudsman has been appointed to consider and facilitate the resolution of concerns from offerors, potential offerors, and others for this acquisition. Before consulting the Ombudsman concerned parties should first address their concerns, issues, disagreements, and/or recommendation to the Contracting Officer for resolution. In addition, AFFARS 5352.201-9101, Ombudsman, will be included in this acquisition's solicitation and contract. The AFLCMC Ombudsman is Lt. Col Peter A. Sandess and he can be contacted at the following telephone number: (937) 255-5512 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please direct any questions regarding this notice to Ms. Kimberly McPhillips, Contracting Officer, tel. (781) 225-0176, e-mail: email@example.com; or Mr. Jarrod Ryals, Contract Specialist, telephone (781) 225-5024 firstname.lastname@example.org .
