Requiring Authority: 60th Civil Engineering Squadron, Mr. William Zito, 4-4982 2. Contracting Agency: 60th Contracting Squadron, Travis AFB CA 3. Purchase Request #: F3Z3847232A003 4. Description of Requirement: 15 Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) radio transceivers and 1 SCADA radio repeater. 5. Statutory Authority permitting other than full and open competition: Section 4202 of the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996, as implemented by: FAR 13.106-1(b)(1). Only one brand name and no other supplies or services will satisfy the agency requirement. 6. Justification or Authority for action: (a.) Currently Travis AFB has several Microwave Data Systems (MDS) 4700 series radios in use on a SCADA system. The remainder of the system must be converted to narrowband radio signaling format by 1 Jan 2008 per federal mandate. Additional MDS 4700 series radios will be used to accomplish this. (b.) MDS 4700 series SCADA radios use a proprietary signaling and modulation technique. In order for the new radios to be compatible with the existing radios MDS 4700 series radios must be purchased again. (c.) Microwave Data System SCADA radios are the only known brand that can satisfy the Government?s requirement. Integration into the existing SCADA system cannot be accomplished using any other manufacture?s radio equipment. (d.) Without this radio equipment Travis AFB will not be able transition it?s SCADA radio network to narrowband radio signaling format. Failure to convert to narrowband will require the system to cease operating on 1 Jan 2008. This system is required to provide remote monitoring of wells, sewer lift gates, and chlorination tanks in the interest of the health of workers and residents at Travis AFB. 8. Brand Name: Microwave Data Systems 9. Steps to improve competition: No additional market research is being done at this time, because this is a one-time requisition. 10.
