Description
The Bureau of Reclamation intends to negotiate on a sole source basis with MB Seismic, LP, 11011 Richmond Avenue, Suite 225, Houston, TX 77042 to provide Seismic Reflection Data Consisting of Data, Field notes and Geometry Files for CGG Wasatch Plateau to Determine Earthquake Hazards for Dam Safety Investigations of Joes Valley Dam. This procurement is being conducted under the Simplified Acquisition Procedures (SAP) FAR Subpart 13. The proposed action is for supplies/services for which the Government believes that there is only one responsible source and no other supplies/services will satisfy the agency's requirement. The following Justification for Other than Full and Open Competition has been prepared in support of this acquisition: 1. Description of the supplies or services: The Bureau of Reclamation has a requirement to acquire seismic reflection data to determine earthquake hazards for dam safety investigations of Joes Valley Dam. 2. Identify the proposed contractor (with address) and describe why they are the only source capable of providing the supply/service: MB Seismic, LP, 11011 Richmond Avenue, Suite 225, Houston, TX 77042. MB Seismic, LP is the sole provider of proprietary CGG seismic reflection lines 202 and 207 from the Joes Valley region. Only this data had sufficient signal to noise and geographic coverage of the Joes Valley fault system, for required investigations of the seismogenic potential of faults near Joes Valley Dam. 3. Additional facts that support the sole source vendor: We've conducted an investigation of all seismic reflection data available for purchase in the area of interest using data brokers to preview the data and these are the only seismic reflection data that had sufficient signal to noise and geographic coverage of the Joes Valley fault system, for required investigations of the seismogenic potential of faults near Joes Valley Dam. 4. Describe all market research that led to the decision that there is only one source: First we contacted the State of Utah to obtain whatever public domain data were available. After reviewing the data from the State of Utah we determined we needed additional data with better geographic coverage in the areas of interest and better signal to noise to allow delineation of fault geometries beneath Joes Valley. We've conducted an investigation of all seismic reflection data available for purchase in the area of interest using data brokers to preview the data and these are the only seismic reflection data that had sufficient signal to noise and geographic coverage of the Joes Valley fault system, for required investigations of the seismogenic potential of faults near Joes Valley Dam. The total cost per mile to purchase the CGG data through MB Seismic, LP is approximately 1/10th the cost per mile to acquire new data. Acquisition of new data would also incur a mobilization charge for equipment and crew of at least $10,000 and probably more than $20,000 for the relatively remote field location. Consequently, it's most cost-effective to acquire the existing proprietary CGG seismic reflection data from MB Seismic, LP. Firms that believe they can provide the required supply described above are encouraged to identify themselves and give written notification to the Contracting Officer. Those firms believing they can provide similar services must provide supporting evidence that they can furnish the services identified above in sufficient detail to demonstrate the respondent's ability to meet the stated requirements. This notice is not a request for competitive quotes. The Government will consider all responses received within 10 days of the date of publication of this notice. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed action based on responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. Information received will be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. Inquiries will only be accepted by e-mail at lhayes@do.usbr.gov. Responses should include the firm's Dun and Bradstreet number (DUNS). Firms should identify themselves as either small business, or other than small business, in accordance with the size standard for North America Industrial Classification System (NAICS) Code 511210 which is $23.0 Million per year averaged over last 3 years.
