Federal contract opportunity N61340136TOFT for other commercial and service industry machinery manufacturing at Naval Air Systems Command Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division, response was due Oct 8, 2014.
THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR COMPETITIVE PROPOSALS. The Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) Orlando intends to award a modification to an existing delivery order under the Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) N61340-12-G-0001 to L-3 Communications Corporation, Link Simulation and Training Division (L-3) Company for the delivery of two Tactical Operational Flight Trainers (TOFTs) to MCAS Iwakuni, Japan. As the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of major components of the F/A-18 and EA-18G TOFT and as the only company to deliver current US Navy F/A-18C/D/E/F and EA-18G TOFTs, L-3 is the only source capable of delivering the TOFTs. Award to any other contractor would result in substantial duplication of costs to the Government that would not be recovered through competition and would create unacceptable delays in fulfilling F/A-18 and EA-18G mission training requirements.
This acquisition is being pursued on a sole source basis under statutory authority of 10 U.S.C. (c) (1) as implemented by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 6.302-1 (Only on responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements). No solicitation documents are available. This notice of intent is neither a request for competitive proposals nor a solicitation of offers. Matters pertaining to this notification may be directed to Jessica Roach at 407-380-8112 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
