Sole/Single Source Rationale
Use the following items to explain why the recommended company is the only company
who can perform the requirement.
The required items are proprietary to the contractor.
A specific item is needed:
To be compatible or interchangeable with existing hardware
As a space or replacement hardware
For the repair or modification of existing hardware
For technical evaluation or test
Vendor is the original equipment manufacturer; there are no regional distributors.
Verification from manufacturer is attached
This is the only equipment that meets the specialized needs of the department and
performs the intended function. Detailed justification is attached.
This Vendor is the sole distributor that is restricted by the manufacturer to our territory.
Verification from the manufacturer is attached.
It is not possible to obtain competition (i.e., only one source is capable of supplying the
items or meeting the requirements).
There is substantial technical risk in contracting with any other contractor, thereby
making that an unacceptable course of action (e.g., where only one contractor has been
successful to date in implementing a difficult manufacturing process).
In a brief explanation on the next page, provide supporting evidence of other contractor’s with
relevant capabilities and emphasize their inability to overcome the substantial technical risk.
For support services effort, there is a reasonable expectation that a meaningful cost or
other improvement could be made in the incumbent contractor’s performance (e.g., the
chances of another firm winning a competition are clearly remote).
Since MuniCode has provided codification services to the Town since 1983, they hold a vast
amount of Town code historical records. A vendor change in this type of service would
pose an operational and fiscal detriment to the maintenance of the Town’s Code of
Ordinances and vital records. Additionally, changing vendors could create a risk for data loss
during the transfer. Therefore, staff has identified this service as a single-source service and is
requesting and recommending waiving the formal bidding process and approving
Municipal Code Corporation as a single source professional services contract.
This section must be completed.
I am aware of the Town’s requirements for competitive bidding for purchases over $2,500.00
and the criteria for justification for Single Source/Sole. I have gathered the required technical
information and have made a concerted effort to review comparable/equal equipment (e.g.,
market research). I have attached the pertinent documentation showing what market
research was conducted to preclude other items from consideration.
