NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, NASA Headquarters Acquisition Branch, Code 210.H, Greenbelt, MD 20771
NASA/HQ has a requirement for accountability and improving performance to mission success. Through collaborating efforts NASA has developed a leadership development, fellowship, and executive coaching program. The present model contains highly confidential data and analysis. The contractor provides analysis of program evaluations and reports and briefing charts summarizing these findings for the annual NASA Executive Development Education Panel Meeting and develops recommendations for program improvements. It is in the best interest of the government to continue with the current contactor because of duplication of cost to the Government that is not expected to be recovered through competition.
NASA/HQ intends to award a purchase order for continued performance of specialized services to Jordan Phoenix Network, Ellicott City, MD. The authority is FAR 6.302-1 (a)(2)(iii)(A) "only one responsible source" where substantial duplication of cost to the Government is not expected to be recovered through competition.
The Government intends to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12.
