This action will award a firm fixed price purchase order to Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) Unmanned Maritime Systems, 209 Ellen Lane, Panama City, FL 32408 for professional Engineering for support of the DCLT program. The POC for contract actions is Christine Ford at ----.
3.A description of the supplies or required to meet the agency's needs(including the estimated value).
The contract effort is to procure labor support and Other Direct Charges to develop active sonar algorithms and support modeling and simulation for DCLT. This acquisition will be conducted using simplified acquisition procedures with a total dollar value above micro-purchase levels, but not exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold of $250,000.00 per DPAP Memo 2018-O0013 dated 31 Apr 2018, estimated at $78,000.00.

Any other engineering management group would require extensive time to learn the existing algorithm methodology causing duplication of efforts and costs. Therefore, it is in the government's best interest to award on a sole source basis to HII as the government does not expect significant savings through competition and expects significant delays impacting schedule due to duplication of efforts.
