Synopsis - Notice of Intent to Sole Source

THIS NOTICE IS PROVIDED FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY

Currently, NGC is the only known source that possesses the requisite knowledge, technical capability, and technical data for the manufacture and delivery of the required items and services without substantial duplication of costs that is not expected to be recovered through competition. The supplies and/or services described above are available only through NGC, to manufacture the above referenced part numbers for the Navy’s F-5F/N aircraft. While the Navy has the Northrop Corporation Product Function Specification for the F-5 Wheel Braking Skid Control System the information contained within does not provide the required detail or build-to-print drawings / schematics of the above referenced part numbers that would provide for competitive solicitation of the Government’s requirement. The Government does not own the data needed to contract for these parts from additional manufacture sources and it is uneconomical to purchase the rights to the data, or reverse engineer the parts. NGC being the sole designer, developer, and manufacturer of the F-5F/N Wheel Braking Skid Control System Components, solely owns the technical data package for the production of the currently installed F-5F/N Wheel Braking Skid Control System Components. Additionally, NGC is the only approved source within the Department of the Navy as the Designer and Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of the Navy’s F-5F/N Wheel Braking Skid Control System Components as designated by the NAVAIR F-5 Fleet Support Team (FST) as the Navy F-5’s design control activity for aviation critical safety items and is responsible for identifying, qualifying, and approving manufacturing sources and suppliers, in accordance with DFARS 209.270 Aviation and Ship Critical Safety Items (CSIs).

This notice is for information purposes only. The information provided herein is subject to change and in no way binds the Government. No solicitation package will be issued. This notice of intent is NOT a request for competitive quotations. Interested parties may identify their interest and unique capabilities in response to this notice. A determination by the Government not to compete the proposed contract action based upon responses to this notice is solely within discretion of the Government. Information received will normally be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. Responses received by 12/12/2022, 3:00 PM Eastern Time may be considered.
