SYNOPSIS for Sole Source License Maintenance Renewals for IBM's Maximo Asset Management, Maximo Asset Management Limited, and Maximo Adapter for Microsoft Project This procurement is in support of the NSWC Corona Division, Force Training Assessment Department, Combined Tactical Training Ranges (CTTR) Information Enterprise Management System (IEMS). The procurement consists of license maintenance fees for existing software used by the CTTR. License maintenance fees are for enterprise applications used by the CTTR for maintenance management and business processes. The license fees are for IBM Maximo Asset Management, Maximo Asset Management Limited, and Maximo Adapter for Microsoft Project. Each of these license maintenance agreements are renewed yearly.

The impact if the license maintenance were not renewed would be an impact on competent management of the IEMS system and users. The enterprise applications are complex software that require support from the original vendor for failures, corruption of data files, software fixes, patches, and application upgrades. These maintenance agreements are crucial for the continuing use of these applications, and the management of the system by developers and administrators. The loss of the IEMS capability would have a large impact on the data management of operation and maintenance trends and most likely future funding that supports Navy training.
