1. Contracting Activity

Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair, USN, Gulf Coast, Pascagoula, Mississippi (SUPSHIPGC), Contracts Department (Code 400).

2. Description of the Action Being Approved

The proposed solicitation and subsequent contract award will provide for the installation of unclassified Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) infrastructure (passive equipment) in one administrative building to support the SUPSHIPGC conversion from the current legacy network to the NMCI network at Textron Systems - Marine & Land Systems (Textron) without providing full and open competition.

3. Description of Supplies/Services

The Government intends to solicit Textron to provide spaces in accordance with the statement of work and install unclassified NMCI infrastructure to Administrative Building 10 located on Textron property in support of SUPSHIPGC's conversion to NMCI. The requirements will include: providing access and escort to vendors, providing space in accordance with the requirements, installing passive hardware for access switches, and ensuring that the HVAC/Cooling (Environmental) are consistent with modem Information Technology standard requirements for all NMCI networks.

The estimated Dollar Value for this requirement is O&MN $50,000 in FYl7.

The Government's minimum needs have been verified by the certifying technical and requirements personnel.

4. Statutory Authority Permitting Other Than Full and Open Competition

The statutory authority permitting other than full and open competition is contained in 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(l) as implemented in FAR 6.302-1, "Only one or a limited number of responsible sources and no other type of supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements," (48 C.F.R 6-302-1).

5. Rationale Justifying Use of Cited Statutory Authority

SUPSHIPGC is located in and operates from non-government space owned by Textron, a private company. Because of this, Textron is the only source capable of installing the unclassified NMCI infrastructure on its property.

The installation of the unclassified NMCI infrastructure is a modification to real property owned by Textron. As a result, it must meet Textron specifications. To ensure that it meets their specifications, Textron must perform the installation.

Textron will install the unclassified NMCI infrastructure requirements to facilitate SUPSHIPGC transition to NMCI.

6. Description of Efforts Made to Solicit Offers from as Many Offerors as Practicable

The proposed sole source solicitation was synopsized on the Federal Business Opportunities website on 19 June 2017 as required and in accordance with FAR 5.2. Additionally any company requesting a solicitation copy will be provided one.

7. Determination of Fair and Reasonable Costs

Thorough price analysis will be conducted using available information and approved pricing techniques that may include: informal cost data, similar item data and/or market research to determine a fair and reasonable price. The Contracting Officer will determine that the cost to the Government for the supplies covered by this J&A will be fair and reasonable.

8. Actions to Remove Barriers to Competition

If the competitive environment changes in the future, this will be addressed as needed for subsequent procurements. However, it is not anticipated that SUPSHIPGC will have similar requirements in the future, as the conversion to NMCI is a one-time Department of the Navy requirement.
