The circumstances of this procurement justify acquisition on a sole source basis. The authority for this acquisition is set forth in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 13.106(b)(1)(i).
Currently, SSA owns the right to use Ivory BMS/TS Package software by GT Software, which is installed on System 93 in SSA's Second Support Center. SSA requires an additional quantity of 755 MIPS from 14,371 Cheryl Watson MIPS to 15,126 Cheryl Watson MIPS. Secondly, the agency requires a quantity of three months maintenance due to upgrade. The place of performance is SSA's Second Support Center, Durham, North Carolina. The period of performance for the proposed firm-fixed price award is from 06/14/2014 through 11/01/2014.
This software is proprietary and as such GT Software has an exclusive right and does not authorize resellers or other entities to maintain Ivory BMS/TS software. Written responses to this synopsis shall contain sufficient documentation to establish a bona fide capability to fulfill this requirement.
This is not a request for quotation; rather, this posting constitutes SSA's notice of intent to procure on a sole source basis with GT Software, Inc. for the above specified requirement. SSA does not intend to pay for any information received. If SSA does not identify other acceptable sources capable of providing the software maintenance and relevant upgrades, then it will issue a sole source award to GT Software, Inc.
