The US Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), has a requirement to procure sustainment activities for the R2TD Active Seismic Imaging (ASI) System. The ERDC intends to issue an award to the University of Kansas Center for Research on a sole source basis. It has been determined that the Kansas Geological Survey, located at the University of Kansas Center for Research, is the only source capable of providing the required software upgrades, hardware replacement, and retrofitting of current systems for the R2TD Active Seismic Imaging (ASI) System. The original ASI system was designed and manufactured by the Kansas Geological Survey specifically for the ERDC, and the software and design specifications are proprietary to the Kansas Geological Survey. No other source would have the ability to modify the current system with hardware ensuring compatibility with the current R2TD ASI system design. Additionally, as the software is proprietary to KGS, no other source would be able to make the required changes to include processing with the sensor streamers. The NAICS code for this requirement is 541715 (Research and Development in the Physical, Engineering, and Life Sciences except Nanotechnology and Biotechnology) with a size standard of 1,000 employees. This notice is not a request for competitive quotes or proposals. A solicitation will not be issued. However, all responsible sources may submit a capability statement, proposal, or quotation, which shall be considered by the agency. The information submitted must be provided in sufficient detail to demonstrate the vendor's ability to fulfill this requirement. The contractor must also provide a description of their past experience in fulfilling requirements which are the same or similar to this requirement and references for each. Information received will be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. A determination by the government not to compete this requirement on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the government. Verbal communications are not acceptable in response to this notice. Responses to this requirement may be submitted to Jody Criss at Jody.Criss@usace.army.mil. The solicitation number shall be included in the subject line of the e-mail submission. Responses must be received no later than 15 days from the posted date of this notice.
