JUSTIFICATION FOR SINGLE SOURCE AWARDS IAW FAR 13.106-1 (OVER MICRO-PURCHASE THRESHOLD($3K) BUT NOT EXCEEDING THE SAT ($150K)) IAW FAR13.104, COs must promote competition to the maximum extent practicable to obtain supplies and services from the source whose offer is the most advantageous to the Government, considering the administrative cost of the purchase. When competition is not practicable, IAW FAR13.106-1(b), COs solicit from a single source for purchases not exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold. COs may solicit from one source if the CO determines that the circumstances of the contract action deem only one source reasonably available (e.g., urgency, exclusive licensing agreements, brand-name or industrial mobilization). IAW FAR13.106-3(b)(3),COs are required to include additional statements explaining the absence of competition (see 13.106-1 for brand name purchases) if only one source is solicited and the acquisition does not exceed the simplified acquisition threshold (does not apply to an acquisition of utility services available from only one source) or supporting the award decision if other than price-related factors were considered in selecting the supplier. This template when completed can be used to document single source awards IAW FAR13.106-3(b)(3). Note: Statements such as "only known source" or "only source which can meet the required delivery date" are inadequate to support a sole source purchase. 1. ACQUISITION PLAN ACTION ID: TBD1A. PROJECT/TASK No. N/A1B. ESTIMATED AMOUNT: $30,000.00 2. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF SUPPLIES OR SERVICES REQUIRED AND THE INTENDED USE: This is a request for a firm fixed-price purchase order to Toshiba America Medical System, 2441 Michelle Drive, Tustin, CA 92780, Phone: 800-421-1968, for the purchase of one (1) Smart Syphon (part number BSM41-5197E) for the Toshiba Titan 1.5 T MRI. This part is needed to repair the Toshiba Titan 1.5 T MRI located at the Battle Creek VA Medical Center to enable it to receive cyogen. This item will be received within 1 day ARO. 3. UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS THAT LIMIT AVAILABILITY TO ONLY ONE SOURCE, WITH THE REASON NO OTHER SUPPLIES OR SERVICES CAN BE USED: Only Toshiba Medical Systems has the right to proprietary parts, equipment and software needed to support the Toshiba Medical Systems CT located at the Battle Creek VA Medical Center. Only Toshiba Medical Systems has access to the needed parts, equipment and software to provide the needed and appropriate level of support. 4. REASON THAT SUGGESTED SOURCE IS THE ONLY SOURCE, WHICH CAN PROVIDE THE SUPPLIES OR SERVICES: Toshiba is the original equipment manufacturer with the right to the proprietary parts, equipment and software needed. They have unique training, fast parts, available field engineers living within 2 hours, and have an operational and approved remote service capability. No other qualified vendors can meet the requirements. 5. DESCRIPTION OF MARKET RESEARCH CONDUCTED AND RESULTS OR STATEMENT WHY IT WAS NOT CONDUCTED: Market research was conducted - Toshiba Medical Systems is the only vendor that can provide the requirement. 6. Contracting Officer's Certification: Purchase is approved in accordance with FAR13.106-1(b). I certify that the foregoing justification is accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief. Note: COs are required to make a determination of price reasonableness IAW FAR 13.106-3.
