NASA/AFRC intends to negotiate a contract performance schedule extension with the incumbent contractor HMS, JV who currently performs Facilities Operations and Maintenance (O&M) requirement at NASA AFRC under contract NND13AD53C. Authority for the requirement is 41 U.S.C. 3304(a) (1) and FAR 6.302-1 (a) (2) - Only one responsible source. Justification is based upon HMS, JV's unique qualifications which are necessary due to the specialized nature of the work performed under this contract that must be sustained while the follow-on competitive procurement is ongoing. HMS, JV has the combined training, experience, and expertise necessary to provide uninterrupted continuation of facilities O&M support. Continuity of these services from HMS, JV is necessary to continue supporting daily operations, maintenance, and repairs that are core to maintaining AFRC's facilities and accomplish NASA's overall mission. If NASA AFRC attempts to procure these services from any other source for this interim period, a break in service may occur which would cause significant disruption, delay, and undue costs that may irreversibly impact the mission. NASA AFRC must therefore ensure continuity of these services to avoid significant adverse impact to AFRC and the overall NASA mission.

Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 4:30 p.m. local time on November 20, 2019.

A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the government.
