PSC: 5826 NAICS 334511 Issue Date: 02 April 2024 Closing Date: 17 April 2024 2:00 PM Time Eastern Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Crane Division has a requirement for a five (5) year Firm Fixed Price and Cost-Plus Fixed Fee Type Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) to support the CDL System for the MQ-4C Triton Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Communication (UA COMMS) Network with efforts to include design, develop, fabricate, prototype, produce, test, modify, repair replenish, support and maintain applicable UA COMMS system products and support components. Contractor shall provide engineering and logistic services, labor, material, equipment, and facilities to perform assigned tasks and shall include efforts to increased producibility, maintainability, reliability, testability, increase safety and decrease cost. The estimated ceiling amount for all items is $25,000,000. The anticipated delivery terms for this acquisition will be FOB Destination. Inspection and Acceptance is anticipated to be at the Source. The proposed noncompetitive contract action is anticipated to be awarded under FAR Part 15, Contracting by Negotiation. The anticipated contract action award date is Second Quarter FY25. The proposed contract action is for the supplies or services for which the Government intends to solicit and negotiate with one source, L3 Technologies, Inc. Communication Systems-West, 640 N 2200 W, Salt Lake City, UT 84116-2925, under the authority of FAR 6.302-1 (statutory authority 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1)), one responsible source. This is being sole sourced due to the lack of sufficient technical data, extensive duplication of costs to include procure, re-tool, reverse engineer, generate acceptance test procedures, perform first article testing, acquire flight certification and perform stress analysis that are not expected to be recovered through competition. This is also being sole sourced due to unacceptable delays in fulfilling the agency requirement through any other source.

However, a determination by the Government not to compete this proposed contract based upon responses to this solicitation is solely within the discretion of the Government.

The request for proposal will be provided to L3 Technologies, Inc. Communications Systems-West through electronic mail.
