“The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of the Chief Information Officer intends to issue a four-month Period of Performance (PoP) extension with “System 1, Inc” located in Bethesda, MD. The DOE is seeking one (1) four-month PoP extension, with the option to exercise an additional four (4) one-month periods, to Task Order DE-DT0012292. The initial period of performance for this extension will run from March 01, 2021 to June 28, 2021. If the Government decides to exercise any of the four (4) one-month options, the period of performance will be extended an additional one (1) month from June 29, 2021, with the possibility to extend to October 28, 2021, if all four (4) option periods are exercised.
The DOE requires System 1, Inc to provide a continuation of Assessment and Authorization support services to various DOE program offices. Under this extension the scope of work will remain unchanged. As the incumbent contractor, System 1 is currently the only uniquely qualified contractor that can provide A&A services without an interruption in services. The extension is required to allow additional time to re-compete this requirement.
The authority for this extension is FAR 8.405-6 (a)(1)(i)(B) “Only one source is capable of providing the supplies and services required at the level of quality required because the supplies or services are unique or highly specialized”.
THIS IS A NOTICE OF INTENT AND NOT A REQUEST FOR COMPETITIVE PROPOSALS.
Any parties that do not believe System 1, Inc, shall not receive up to an eight (8) month extension may submit a capability statement by February 10, 2021 at 8 AM EST via email to MARIA.VANTHOF@HQ.DOE.GOV. The capability statement shall include a detailed discussion demonstrating experience and expertise in providing the current services under DE-DT0012292.
A determination by the Government to consider procuring the services under DE-DT0012292 from a source other than System 1 is solely within the discretion of the Government.”
