Justification and Approval (J&A)
FAR 6.302-2 - Unusual and compelling urgency
January 25, 2013
Added: Feb 07, 2013 2:00 pm
This is a notice of intent to award a sole source contract. This notice is to announce the issuance of contract H92222-13-D-0008 for the Mid-Endurance Unmanned Aircraft System (MEUAS). This Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract was awarded to Insitu, Inc. on 25 January 2013.

Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond the Government's control, there is an immediate requirement to mitigate a critical ISR services gap. This proposed contract action is to ensure continued operational capability.

The proposed contract action is for supplies or services the Government intends to issue under FAR 6.302-2, Unusual and Compelling Urgency. All responsible sources may submit a capability statement, proposal, or quotation which shall be considered by the agency. This notice of intent is NOT a request for competitive proposals. However, all proposals received within 45 days after date of publication of this notice will be considered by the Government. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed contract action based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. Information received will normally be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement.

Based upon market research, the Government is not using the policies contained in Part 12, Acquisition of Commercial Items, in its solicitation for the described supplies or services. Instead, the policies contained in Part 15, Contracting by Negotiation, will be used.
