This includes flat rate buesinee lines, analog, ISDN BRI, Digital DSL, Pri lines, VOIP, access charges, network transport services, and regulatory fees.

Description of Supplies or Services required to meet the Agency s need

The CMOP National IT Office (770 ) is requesting continuing service from GSA Heartland for the above listed services.


ORDER AGAINST FSS: Authority of the Multiple Award Schedule Program, Title III of the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (41 USC 251, et seq.); Title 40 USC 501, Services for Executive Agencies; and Section 803 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2002 (PL 107-107) and implemented by FAR 8.405-6. Mark the applicable exception:

An urgent and compelling need exists, and following the procedures would result in unacceptable delays(FAR 8.405-6(a)(1)(i)(A);

Only one source is capable of providing the supplies or services required at the level of quality required because the supplies or services are unique or highly specialized; (FAR 8.405-6(a)(1)(i)(B));

In the interest of economy and efficiency, the new work is a logical follow-on to an original Federal Supply Schedule order and the original order was placed in accordance with the applicable Federal Supply Schedule ordering procedures. The original order was not previously issued under sole-source or limited-sources procedures (FAR 8.405-6(a)(1)(i)(C)); or

Items peculiar to one manufacturer. An item peculiar to one manufacturer can be a particular brand name, product, or a feature of a product, peculiar to one manufacturer). A brand name item, whether available on one or more schedule contracts, is an item peculiar to one manufacturer (FAR 8.405-6(b)).

Rational/explanation to support cited authority:

The Murfreesboro CMOP has been using GSA Heartland to provide these services since 2012. This is proprietary to the vendor GSA sub-contracts to for these services.

It is in the best interest of the CMOP to award to GSA Heartland because of continuity of services with no lapse of coverage.

Note that this determination satisfies the requirements of FAR 8.405-6. The requirement to prepare a written justification IAW FAR 6.303 does not apply to Federal Supply Schedules.
