Special Notice
Added: Jul 05, 2012 1:33 pm

The Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection intends to contract with Colt Defense, LLC for thirty six (36) Colt LE901 rifle systems.  Market research indicates the Colt 901 is a weapon system comprised of a modified M4 lower receiver mated to a .308 caliber upper receiver.  The lower receiver will accept and function any military specification (Mil-Spec) .223 caliber upper receiver, and is thus backwards compatible with all CBP/U.S. Border Patrol M4 upper receivers.  Colt is the only known company to offer such a unique and specialized weapon system.  The Colt 901 is the only known weapon system of its type (Gas operated, traditional AR platform) with this capability.

Sole Source Justification:  The statutory authority for use of 'other than full and open competition' for this transaction is 41 USC 253(c)(1) as implemented by FAR 6.302-1, only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements.

The notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals and no formal solicitation package is available.  However prospective contractors who believe they can successfully propose must provide specific detailed technical documentation to support such claims of abilities.  No award will be made on the basis of any proposal or other information received in response to this notice, and this is a notification of intent to acquire supplies/services and not a request for proposals.  The Government will not be responsible for any costs incurred in the preparation of responses to this announcement.  This is the only notice that will be issued for these goods/services.
