This requirement is being procured using FAR Part 13, Simplified Acquisition Procedures. This acquisition is 100% small business set-aside.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to award a sole source purchase order to PURETHINK, LLC, for the purchase of iGOV Graph Database. The exception for this acquisition is based on FAR 16.505(b)(2)(i)(B), only one source can provide the services required for the CDW Knowledge Graph Environment (CKGE). No other vendor has the specialized experience and expertise of the existing particular library of code involving the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) capabilities, which they solely developed, or is capable of delivering the unique set of capabilities that are required for the continued operation of the CKGE to meet user demands, especially given time sensitivity to meeting filing season demands, and broader stakeholder demands for additional capabilities to handle other Fraud and other mission critical direct Exam and Collection needs. The following illustrate the unique capabilities that demonstrate iGov is the only vendor that can meet the IRS needs.

1)The FISMA library of code is a CGKE critical dependency, and without the ability to maintain and enhance it, IRS very much risks work stoppage due to security requirements; this capability is a complex set of programming selected because it was high quality and avoided additional costs to the Service to developed itself; there is no IRS capability to sustain the capability at the moment.

These responses may not exceed 10 pages. If a response is received that meets the IRS's requirements and analysis of both technical and pricing documentation indicate that a competitive acquisition would be more advantageous to the Government, a formal solicitation may be issued. Currently, no solicitation document exists for this requirement. Requests for same will be considered non-responsive.

If no compelling responses are received, award will be made to PURETHINK, LLC. Submit any questions via email
