It is the National Energy Technology Laboratory's (NETL) intent to award a purchase order on a sole source basis to VENTYX INC. to renew the Velocity Suite Software.All Technical Questions concerning this Request for Quotation should be directed to Mr. Erik Schuster at 412-386-4104, e-mail

This is considered a sole source to VENTYX INC. because NETL analysts and researchers use the products and data on a daily basis to support the mission of these organizations. Additionally, the Ventyx Energy Velocity Suite has been established on an NETL server and is now accessible to numerous analysts supporting the mission of NETL, across multiple program areas. There is no known replacement that is a one to one match in which the government could exchange the current data architecture with another s vendor s product. Therefore, due to the integrated nature of the product and the hours of redesign required to replace the Ventyx Energy Velocity Suite with another vendor s product, it is the Government s best interest and would provide the best value to the government to renew the current license agreement with Ventyx for the Energy Velocity Suite or products.
