Added: Sep 25, 2017 11:24 am The United States Air Force, AFLCMC/Operational Contracting Division, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio 45433-5344. This is a Sole Source Synopsis published for informational purposes only. This proposed action is for the procurement of Nexus spine instruments and implants system for a spinal procedure at the Medical Treatment Facility on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The Government intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of FAR 13.106-1(b)(1). This proposed procurement will be a Sole Source under North American Industry Classification System Code (NAICS) 339113: Surgical Appliance and Supplies Manufacturing. Business size standard for NAICS 339113 is 750 employees. The proposed source is Granite Quarry, LLC. located at 3827 Rockwood Ct. Waynesville, OH 45068-7008. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed contract based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. Information received will normally be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. This notice of intent is not a request for competitive quotations. However, all responsible sources may submit a capability statement, proposal, quotation or exception to the intent to purchase on a sole source basis, which shall be considered by the Government, if received by Wednesday, September 27, 2017, 11:00 A.M. EST. Information received will normally be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. In order to comply with FAR 5.207(c)(15), the reason for lack of competition is as follows: The Government requires the Nexus spine instruments and implants system for a multi level spine surgery on 3 October 2017 to be performed at the MTF at WPAFB. The Nexus system is the only known system that the Ortho spine surgeon is trained on for this type of spinal procedure. The Ortho spine surgeon has trained using Nexus implants and plating systems and if these items were not used the surgery would need to be sent off base at a substantial duplication of cost. The proposed sole source is the only known source able to satisfy the Government's requirements as they are the local sole distributor of Nexus Spine in Ohio. The Department of Defense (DoD) has determined the System for Award Management (SAM) to be the single DoD registration for contractors who conduct business or who are interested in conducting business with the DoD. Contractors must be registered in SAM prior to award for solicitations issued after 29 May 2012. You may contact SAM by telephone at 866-606-8220 or online at https://www.sam.gov
