Additionally, based on previous contracts for the same service within NCO15, it was found that the previous awards were made on a sole source basis due to the above mentioned proprietary software required to operate the security system. Siemens Industry Inc. was contacted to either obtain a list of authorized service technicians or a proprietary letter. Siemens provided a proprietary letter as Siemens has not allowed other technicians to service this software and/or system. Determination by the CO that the Anticipated Cost to the Government will be Fair and Reasonable: The anticipated price will be considered fair and reasonable based on current catalogue pricing for this similar service and/or based on previous awards with the understanding of price increase annually.

Siemens provided a proprietary rights letter and has not partnered with any other vendors to provide this service to date.

Listing of Sources that Expressed, in Writing, an Interest in the Acquisition: Siemens Industry Inc A Statement of the Actions, if any, the Agency May Take to Remove or Overcome any Barriers to Competition before Making subsequent acquisitions for the supplies or services required: The Government will continue to research through Siemens if they will partner with other vendors to provide the service for this requirement.
