Description
NASA/LaRC has a requirement for continued maintenance support for ABAQUS software. NASA/LaRC intends to purchase the items from ABAQUS East, LLC as the only known responsible source that can meet Agency requirements. ABAQUS software is one of the main tools used to perform the required analysis and verification of the dynamic response of aerospace vehicles. The renewal of the annual maintenance agreement is required to continue receiving regular updates as new versions of the software are released; access to technical support; prompt notification of bugs, and new documentation as it is published. It would take substantial duplication of time and money for another company to offer a similar product that would meet this requirement, and these costs are not expected to be recovered through competition. The Government intends to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12. Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 4:30 p.m. local time on January 2, 2004. Such capabilities/qualifications will be evaluated solely for the purpose of determining whether or not to conduct this procurement on a competitive basis. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the government. Oral communications are not acceptable in response to this notice. An Ombudsman has been appointed. See NASA Specific Note "B".
