The Social Security Administration (SSA) intends to negotiate with INGENICO.COM, of 3025 Windward Plaza, Suite 600, Alpharetta, GA 30005, or its authorized resellers, for the required supplies and services listed below, under the authority set forth in FAR 13.106-1(b)(1)(i) "Soliciting from a Single Source". SSA competitively awarded contract SS00-13-60034 on September 30, 2014 for software, support services and hardware to implement the Social Security Electronic Remittance System (SERS) Streamlined Remittance Process and Automated System Solution to collect fees from SSA's field offices for non-programmatic services. The award included the hardware and software to accept payments from members of the public who present branded plastic cards; SSA will be able to do this using special encrypted "Card Readers" (Ingenico iPP320 Card Reader), which allow for immediate authorization, processing, and approval by interfacing with the U.S. Department of Treasury. SSA now has a requirement to secure these public-facing card readers to the counter-tops in the field offices in a manner that does not interfere with the card reader functionality. SSA requires INGENICO hardware as follows: CLIN 0001: MIS-296115032 296115032 CRADLE BASE PLATE FOR IPP3XX, QTY 1209; CLIN 0002: STCK-SEN350959 SEN350959 (367-2164) IPP3XX CRADLE/STAND ADPRT, 0-65 DEG STD, QTY 1209. The contractor will ship the brackets within the next 6-9 months, delivery is FOB destination to each of the SSA field offices (1209) based on a delivery schedule to be finalized. The contractor will provide hardware to secure the card reader to a counter-top on the public side of a window in a field office. The entire deliverable must be compatible with the Card Readers (Ingenico iPP320 Card Reader), and must not void any warranty or violate Payment Card Industry Standards. These components (base plate and stand) are made to work specifically with the Card Readers (Ingenico iPP320 Card Reader) which SSA is acquiring for SERS. Generic or other aftermarket hardware may alter or damage the card readers. No other product has the ability to fulfill the requirement. This notice is for informational purposes only. This is not a solicitation or request for proposals. The Government will not award a contract from this announcement, or pay for information received. A solicitation is NOT available. Therefore, written and/or verbal requests for copies of a solicitation related to this announcement will not be honored. A determination by the Government not to compete this requirement based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. NO EMAILS, PHONE CALLS, OR FAXES WILL BE ACCEPTED OR RETURNED.
