Intent to sole source:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) intends to negotiate, on a sole source basis, withAgilent Technologies, Inc. (Agilent), 5301 Stevens Creek Rd, Santa Clara, CA 95051, to provide repair services and parts for the Agilent 7500xc Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS), an instrument located in EPA?s National Exposure Research Laboratory, Las Vegas, NV. There is no other known source for repair and/or repair parts as Agilent is the manufacturer, the instrument has been discontinued, and is no longer available for purchase. Therefore, EPA believes this is the only vendor capable of satisfying this requirement. The circumstance permitting ?other than full and open competition? at this time is FAR 13.106-1(b), "sole source". The anticipated period of performance is 6 months.
