Special Notice
:
Added: Sep 24, 2013 10:51 am

This is a notice of intent that the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) intends to award a sole source contract to GeoEye Analytics, A DigitalGlobe Company, 7921 Jones Branch Drive Ste 600, Mc Lean VA 221052-3399 for highly specialized Human Geography Information System (HGIS) geospatial dataset software and licenses.  The HGIS requirement is for one base year period.


USSOCOM's requirement is to purchase HGIS geospatial dataset software and licenses.  The specialized HGIS software is independently developed and fielded by DigitalGlobal that offers a unique satellite constellation for collecting data in areas not available through commercial means.  Using a single source minimizes software testing, integration, maintenance, training requirements and streamlines logistics support processes.  DigitalGlobal software is not attainable through resellers.  This software is needed for interoperability and compatibility with the simulators being used.  This notice is not a request for offers.  The contractor identified is the only known source for the subject requirement.  However, any other responsible vendor believing they have the capability of meeting the requirement may submit their capabilities to include technical documentation to establish the potential of meeting the Government's need.


This notice is not a request for offers.  The anticipated date of award is 30 September 2013.  The Government intends to negotiate with only one source under the authority of 10 U.S.C 2304(c)(5), Authorized or Required by Statute, as implemented by FAR 6.302-5 (b)(4) Sole source awards.


All responses from responsible sources will be considered.  Any such responses must be in writing and include technical and pricing information.  A determination by the Government not to compete the proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the government.  Responses are due no later than 26 September 2013 at 3:00 p.m. EST; however, early submissions are encouraged.  Only electronic submissions will be accepted.  Interested vendors may submit information for consideration of their capabilities and qualifications to erica.fairley@socom.mil.
