Office of Acquisition Management
The U.S. EPA/OAR/OAR Clean Air Markets Division (CAMD), under the authority of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 13, Simplified Acquisition Procedures, intends to issue a sole source purchase order to Wood MacKenzie, Inc. of Boston, MA for 15-month subscriptions to: Coal Market Service Long Term Outlook, Coal Supply Service Western Coal, Coal Supply Service US Appalachia, and Coal Supply Service Illinois Basin. The justification is as follows. These subscriptions are needed to assess whether and how to update the coal supply curves used by EPA in the Integrated Planning Model of the US Power Sector. Those supply curves were developed for the EPA in 2009 and updated in 2012 by Wood Mackenzie. EPA requires the Wood Mackenzie coal service subscriptions because hey use the same underlying approach employed in the development of EPA s coal supply curves. No other coal projection would provide the required consistency in approach. NO SOLICITATION OR REQUEST FOR QUOTE IS AVAILABLE. Notwithstanding, any firm that believes it is capable of meeting this requirement may submit a response, which if received by August 13, 2013 at 1:00 pm, will be considered. Responses to this announcement must be in writing to the Contracting Officer at Schwartz.email@example.com.
