The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Research Triangle Park (RTP) in Durham, North Carolina intends to negotiate on a sole source basis to SciGlob Instruments, LLC in accordance with 13.106-1(b)(1), "soliciting from a single source" to purchase a SciGlob sun photometer (Pandora). This procurement is recommended to be processed without full and open competition. EPA s National Exposure Effects Research Laboratory (NERL) Exposure Methods and Measurement Division, Sensing & Spatial Branch is needing a new rack mountable SciGlob sun photometer (Pandora) 2 spare tracker and 2 spare fibers for remote sensing of trace gases (O3, NO2, and HCHO) to support EPA trace gas validation of urban scale satellite data from TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TropOMI) and the Tropospheric Emissions: Monitoring of Pollution (TEMPO) satellite instruments capable of retrieving total column amounts key trace gases (O3, NO2, HCHO and SO2) required for TropOMI and TEMPO validation efforts. The instrument manufacturer, SciGlob Instruments & Services, LLC, is the only manufacturer capable of providing the required instrument to achieve research goals associated with the upcoming field and satellite calibration and validation activities. It is the only commercially available instrument capable of retrieving total column amounts key trace gases (O3, NO2, HCHO and SO2) required for TropOMI and TEMPO validation efforts. In addition, EPA already owns and operates one rack mounted SciGlob sun photometers and it is critical to maintain measurement consistency (accuracy and precision) throughout the proposed sun photometer network.
