GE Inspection Technologies has proposed that these items be placed on their GSA schedule. Delivery time
frame is two to four weeks after receipt of contract. The command has provided FY-09 Operation and
Maintenance Navy (O&MN) funding for the video probe and accessories.

4. Statutory Authority Permitting Sole Source. The statutory authority for this action is 10 U.S.C. 2304 (c)
(2), Unusual and Compelling urgency.

5. Rationale Justifying Use of Cited Statutory Authority. This is an urgent requirement due to the
command needing the video probes before their deployment date of approximately 6/09. The material is
manufactured by GE Inspection Technologies and the command is currently using the same video probes.
The system must be compatible with existing system, also, the parts will be interchangeable with current
system and no additional training will be required. Also, the units will share the same interface data
collecting software for the final report and analysis information that is loaded straight from the Video
probe.

6. Description of Efforts Made to Solicit Offers from as Many Offerors as Practicable.
Other units were researched and they either did not provide a probe small enough to pass through the
turbine ports or did not provide a means of measuring the fourth stage nozzles critical criteria. The
requested unit provides a 3.9mm probe that is capable of extracting required measurement for the specific
purpose of determining the operational status of a TF40 Gas Turbine Engine.

7. Determination of Fair and Reasonable Cost. The Contracting Officer will determine the anticipated cost
to the Government of the supplies and services covered by this J&A will be fair and reasonable.

8. Actions to Remove Barriers to Future Competition. For the reasons set forth in Paragraphs 5 and 6,
FISC Norfolk Contracting has no plans at this time to compete the required probes covered by this
document. If another potential source emerges, the requiring command will assess whether competition for
future requirements is feasible. The J & A will be posted on NECO/FEDBiZOPPS within the required
timeframe.
