The Department of Commerce/National Institute of Standards and Technology intends to negotiate and award a purchase order on a sole source basis with Dassault Systemes Simulia Corp, 166 Valley St Bldg 3, Providence, RI 02909-2400. This requirement is for Abaqus software licenses renewal, which is required for a continuing project on modeling of nanoscale cantilevers using existing NIST Abaqus licenses. Additionally, NIST has existing applications developed for this project that have been coded in the Abaqus input language, which require Abaqus to run. No other known software is capable of running these applications. This Abaqus system is only available from Dassault Systemes Simulia Corp. The Government intends to solicit only this one source under the authority of FAR 13.106-1(b) because the Government has not identified any other source that can meet the requirements specified above. Interested concerns may identify their capabilities by submitting a capability statement that clearly and unambiguously demonstrates in written narrative format their ability to provide these services. Information received will be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. This notice is not a request for quotation. A determination by the Government whether to compete this proposed requirement is solely within the discretion of the Government.
