Justification and Approval (J&A)
FAR 6.302-2 - Unusual and compelling urgency
April 28, 2009
Added: Feb 07, 2013 1:26 pm
This notice is to announce the revision of the contract maximum amount on the Mid-Endurance Unmanned Aircraft System (MEUAS), and to extend a previously awarded contract on a sole source basis. This Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contract H92222-09-D-0015 was competed and awarded to The Boeing Company on 28 April 2009.

Under the initial contract award, the contract maximum for the five year period was $250,000,000 with anticipated performance through 27 April 2014. During contract operations, new requirements were validated for additional unmanned aircraft system (UAS) intelligence gathering, target surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) services using the MEUAS contract. With these additional requirements it became apparent the existing ceiling would be reached prior to the end of the five year contract ordering period. Program efforts were initiated in October 2010 to establish the competitive follow-on MEUAS II contract. A Justification and Approval (J&A) document was approved on 10 June 2011 to increase the existing contract ceiling by $50,000,000 for a revised contract maximum of $300,000,000. This allowed for the continuation of mission essential operations during the source selection process of the MEUAS II follow-on requirement. A second J&A was approved and issued on 16 July 2012. This action increased the contract maximum by $35,000,000 for a revised contract maximum of $335,000,000. This was to assure continuous operational capability during the transition from the MEUAS contract to the MEUAS II contract.

This proposed contract action will increase the dollar ceiling of the MEUAS contract (H92222-09-D-0015) by $10,000,000 for a revised contract maximum of $345,000,000.

The proposed contract action is for services the Government issued utilizing the authority of FAR 6.302-2, Unusual and Compelling Urgency. This notice of intent is NOT a request for competitive proposals. Interested persons may identify their interest and capability to respond to the requirement or submit proposals. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed contract based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government.
