The Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service), on behalf of the Office of Financial Research (OFR) and the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) intends to make award to Dealogic 120 Broadway 8th Floor, New York, NY, 10271, on a sole source basis, under authority of FAR 6.302-1, for Dealogic's DCM Analytics and Loan Analytics.

DCM (Debt Capital Market) Analytics and Loan Analytics are the only products primarily devoted to in depth analysis of the primary debt capital market - i.e., the syndicated loans themselves. Dealogic assigns a proprietary data identifier to the loan, lead lender, and underwriters which facilitate tracking trends in the structuring of syndicated loan portfolios and risk mitigation strategies. Dealogic does report on the secondary market; however, its principal focus is on the primary debt market, including syndicated loans. The proprietary data identifier attached to the principal lenders, underwriters, and the debt instrument itself is a component of an archival data base going back to 1980. This is the only means possible to track long-term trends and evolving strategies in the syndicated loan market.

The DCM Analytics web portal provides immediate access to detailed analysis of the global DCM landscape. Analytical tools are layered over a comprehensive deal database containing information on all international and domestic issues with detailed coverage of each transaction. DCM Analytics utilizes sophisticated analytical tools to identify company and transaction similarities to accurately benchmark historical issues and to understand market trends with data going back to 1980. Loan Analytics is a database of current and historical transactions. This database is a comprehensive deal database containing information on all syndicated loans globally with detailed coverage of each transaction with data going back to 1980. The Dealogic tools are focused on the primary market.

FSOC requires data for chart 4.2.3 Bond Issuance by Nonfinancial Firms, and for chart 5.1.18 EME Gross Global Bond Issuance; (2012 and 2014 FSOC Annual Report respectively) as well as underlying information on primary corporate debt financing for monitoring purposes. OFR requires the data for the emerging markets section of its annual report. For purposes of research into the underlying nonbank corporate debt market and mitigating risks, OFR and FSOC require the ability to track historical trends in the market by loan, and by the principal lead lender and principal lending partners as well as by underwriters. This requires unique data identifiers affixed to the loans/debt instruments as well as the principal members of the syndicate (both lead lenders and underwriters) as well as historical archives for long-term trend analysis
