Program / Project (and PE, if applicable): RA-1 Parachutes
Program Type (PEO or Other Contracting):
Authority (include full title): FAR 13.501 Brand Name Acquisitions


I. Contracting Activity.
Department of Air Force, 1st Special Operations Contracting Squadron, Hurlburt Field, FL. This document serves as a
Justification for Other Than Full and Open Competition. The purchase request number is F2F0117192AW02.
II. Nature and/or description of the action being processed.
This action will be awarded as a new contract and it will be a firm-fixed-price contract.
III. Description of supplies/services required to meet agency needs.
The resulting contract will provide 10 each RA-1 Military Free Fall (MFF) personnel parachute systems.
The RA-1 provides a multimission, High Altitude Low Opening (HALO) or High Altitude High Opening
(HAHO) capability, which provides MFF parachutists with a steerable insertion capability. The RA-1
allows personnel to exit at altitudes between 3,500 feet to 35,000 feet Mean Sea Level with a total jumper
exit weight of 450 pounds.
The purchase includes:
10 each RA-1 System
10 each Pilot Chute Assembly, Bottom of Container, Large
10 each O2 Pocket
10 each Radio Pocket
10 each Carrying Bag
IV. Statutory authority permitting Other than Full and Open Competition.
Procurement under the contract will be conducted on a sole-source basis in accordance with the statutory
authority 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1) and implemented by FAR 13.501, Brand Name acquisitions conducted
under simplified acquisition procedures.
V. Demonstration that the contractor's unique qualifications or nature of the acquisition requires the use of the
authority cited above (applicability of authority).
The RA-1 (Ram Air 1) parachute system, also referred to as ARAPS, is the established parachute system
for the DoD and is currently being implemented throughout AFSOC.
Reference Military Free Fall Advanced Ram Air Parachute System issued by USASOC and US Army
Evaluation Center, Final Report for the Developmental Test (DT) of the Advanced Ram Air Parachute
System (ARAPS). The ARAPS is the parachute system that has replaced the standard MC-4 Ram Air
Parachute System.
VI. Description of efforts made to ensure that offers are solicited from as many potential sources as practicable.
On 8 September 2017, a sources sought notice was issued for 7 days on Federal Business Opportunities
seeking potential/interested vendors for the system identified in this justification. Two responses were received by DOD certified parachute manufacturers capable of building and selling the RA-1 Parachute.
The OEM Airborne Systems, a Large Business, and Complete Parachute Solutions, a Small Business
responded to the Sources Sought.
VII. Determination by the Contracting Officer that the anticipated cost to the Government will be fair and reasonable.
The anticipated price will be determined fair and reasonable based on competitive quotes received for this
solicitation.
VIII. Description of the market research conducted and the results, or a statement of the reasons market research was
not conducted.
Market research was conducted by searching Federal Business Opportunities. Previous purchases were
found and advertised as sole source procurements through both the Air Force and Army. However, the
Sources Sought notice posted for this requirement revealed two vendors capable of fulfilling this
acquisition.
IX. Any other facts supporting the use of Other Than Full and Open Competition.
X. List of sources, if any, that expressed interest in the acquisition.
See Paragraph VI.
XI. A statement of the actions, if any, the agency may take to remove or overcome any barriers to competition before
making subsequent acquisitions for the supplies or services required.
At this time, there are no planned actions the agency is able to take in order to remove or overcome barrier
to competition for future requirements. Decisions to implement a new Military Free Fall Parachute system
would need to be made across service agencies, the system would need to go through testing and approval.
If an alternate product were tested and approved, AFSOC would need to replace existing RA-1 Parachutes
to ensure a parachute standard to ensure proper training and safety of the parachutists.
XII. Certification by the Contracting Officer.
As evidenced by my signature above, I have determined this document to be both accurate and complete to the best of my
knowledge and belief.
XIII. Certification by the technical/requirements personnel.
As evidenced by my signature above, I certify that any supporting data contained herein, which is my responsibility, is both
accurate and complete.
