Justification for Sole Source
This justification is being issued to allow for the award of a firm-fixed price contract to Environmental Systems Research Institute, Inc. (ESRI) for the purchase of an ArcGIS Data Appliance. Market Research indicates no other vendor provides a map repository software application of world-wide maps usable on a closed network using Silverlight web mapping Application Program Interface (API). Silverlight is the application program interface currently used by LeMay Center/WG.
The ArcGIS Data Appliance is required to be integrated with the existing ESRI software licenses. The ArcGIS Data Appliance will enhance the LeMay Center/WG ability to view spatial data, perform spatial analysis, manipulate Geographic Information System (GIS) data, provide content layers equal to Representational State Transfer (REST) services available over the Internet. This is all critical to providing the Common Operations Picture for our Web Forces applications supporting wargames.
The initial requirement was competitively awarded under contract FA3300-15-P-0021 to ESRI. Additionally, LeMay Center/WG has invested 12 months interfacing our Web Forces applications with ESRI. If another suitable product was available, another 6 to 12 months of programming would be required to achieve the operability
available using ESRI. These cost cannot be recovered through competition.
