Sep 18, 2020 | Sources Sought

This is a Notice of Intent issued in accordance with FAR Part 5.203 on behalf of the Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, MD. This requirement is for the procurement of annual maintenance and support of ePower Business Process Management Software.  The proposed acquisition is for the purchase of ePower Annual Software Maintenance and Support for 10,000 ePower Workflow Activator User Licenses which includes 10,000 licenses of the integrated Open Text Document Management Software Component.

The Department of Navy intends to negotiate a sole source procurement with Northrop Grumman Systems Corporation, located at 2340 Dulles Corner Blvd, Herndon, VA, 20171, under authority of 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1). Northrop Grumman Corporation is the sole provider for ePower software and maintenance. The brand name requirement is based upon the need to manage Business Process Management solutions effectively, using the latest upgrades for better efficiency in organization and integration.  The ePower software product is integral to Naval Air Systems Command’s (NAVAIR’s) Information Technology (IT) systems and any break in service for ePower software and support would severely affect all of the NAVAIR users that use the ePower Software to perform their daily business processes and complete their tasking.

The NAICS code for this acquisition is 511210 Software Publishers. Although this notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals or quotes, interested parties may submit capability statements via email to the Contract Specialist, Vicki Dean, [AMACAA21] at email Vicki.w.dean@navy.mil.  A determination by the Government not to compete the proposed acquisition based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government.
