The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) intends to award a fixed-price purchase order on a single source basis to the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) for trade and quote tick data from the Options Pricing Reporting Authority (OPRA). The contracting officer has determined that CBOE is the only source that can reasonably meet the SEC's requirement in accordance with FAR Part 13.106-1(b). CBOE is the only know source that can provide the data in the format required by the SEC. The period of performance is anticipated to be for one (1) base year with four (4) one-year Options. The total award value will be below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold.

The SEC intends to award a purchase order to CBOE on or about June 30, 2014. This notice is not a competitive request for proposals. A competitive solicitation will not be issued. However, the government will give consideration to interested parties that identify their interest and capability to respond to the requirement or submit proposals by the response date of this notice.
