                                   LIMITED SOURCE JUSTIFICATION

Upon the basis of the following justification, I, as the Contracting Officer for the procuring
activity, hereby approve other than full and open competition for the proposed contractual action
pursuant to the authority of Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) 13.501, Test Program for
Commercial Items (section 4202 of the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996) as well as 10 U.S.C. §
2304(g)(1)(B).

1. Contracting Activity

   Marine Corps Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM)
   Information Systems and Infrastructure Contracts Group (CT024)
   2200 Lester Street
   Quantico, VA 22134-6050

2. Nature of Action Being Approved

   Contracting for brand name items.

3. Description of Supplies/Services

    The United States Marine Corps intends to procure (2) Two HP Integrity rx6600 Servers –
    P/N# AD134A-Opt280 and three years of associated service support.

4. Identification of Justification Rationale

   The Statutory Authority permitting use of other than full and open competition is FAR
   13.501, Test Program for Commercial Items as well as 10 U.S.C. § 2304(g)(1)(B).

   The Marine Corps Logistics Command (MARCORLOGCOM), Maintenance Center Albany
   (MCA) uses the Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP) II/Networks Make-To-Order
   (MTO) (MRP II/MTO) application for closed loop planning, execution and control support
   for the re-manufacturing, repair, overhaul and manufacture of depot commodity workloads.
   The MRP II/MTO application reduces the customer’s repair cycle time (which provides the
   warfighter the equipment they need to perform their jobs in combat and on training exercises)
   and cuts overall Marine Corps program costs.

                                                                                   J&A No.: 13,344




   The MRP II/MTO application interfaces with external Marine Corps industrial labor and
   material management systems. In that the current interfaces include batch processing only, in
   support of the BRAC 2005 law, by October 2010, MCA/LOGCOM must implement interface
   enhancements between MRP II /MTO and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) systems. These
   required interface enhancements will substantially increase server load and will require near
   real time execution. However, MCA’s MRP II/MTO application and interfaces are hosted
   within the MARCORLOGCOM Data Center on servers that have passed their life cycles;
   consequently, these servers cannot support the required interface upgrades.

   In 1995, based on a recommendation from the Joint Service Feasibility Working Group
   (JSFWG). the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Logistics) (DUSD (L)) approved MRP II
   as the maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) management migration system. In 1996, via
   full and open competition, the Joint Logistics System Command (JLSC) awarded the
   CompassCONTRACT® (now NetWORKSMTO) for software, in which an MRP II
   Commercial-off the Shelf (COTS) software package from Western Data Systems (which was
   acquired by Manugistics, Inc, now known as JDA Software Group, Inc in 2002) was selected.
   Prior to award of this contract, JLSC complied with the requirements of FAR Parts 7 and 10.
   The MRP II effort included a Contract Line Item Number for Annual Maintenance, to include
   product upgrades and support services. In 1996, MCA implemented MRP II/MTO version
   6.1.3, and to date MCA has maintained continued upgrades and support up through its current
   version, which is version 7.3. JDA version support lifecycle is 18 months from release date.
   As the current vendor, JDA provides specific hardware platforms and operating systems (OS)
   that are certified as compatible with each software release. However, JDA support can be
   jeopardized if MTO is installed on any hardware platform or OS version that varies from the
   JDA certified platform.

   MTO 7.3 currently operates and is certified to execute on a PA-RISC hardware platform, OS
   HP-UX 11.11. The current MTO version 7.3 does not comply with Marine Corps Enterprise
   Network (MCEN) OPDIR 118-08 (Implementation and Configuration of DOD Private Webs
   Servers and Certificate Validation). In order to ensure compliance with this directive, the
   program provided the Marine Corps Network Operations and Security Command, which
   oversees the MCEN, with a mitigation plan that includes upgrading the MRP II application to
   version 7.6. This version, released December 2009, includes feature enhancements which
   comply with OP-DIR 118-08.

   As noted, JDA certifies the platforms upon which the applications run. MTO version 7.6 is
   certified to execute on HP Integrity hardware platform, OS HP-UX 11 version 3 or 11.31. In
   order to avoid jeopardizing JDA support for the MRP II/MTO application, MCA must install
   MTO 7.6 on a certified HP Integrity hardware platform, OS HP-UX 11 version 3 or 11.31.

   The installed Host Bus Adapters (HBA) and 10G Ethernet Network Interface Cards (NIC)
   will meet the requirements for either Storage Area Network (SAN) and/or Network Attached
   Storage (NAS) shared media storage. Installed memory will provide application and database
   type functions to process at the required rate without interfering with the web-based interface

   that end-users utilize. Installed Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) adapter and
   installed memory will provide application and database type functions to process at the
   required rate without interfering with the web-based interface that end-users utilize. Installed
   RAID adapter and capability will provide fault tolerance, should a Hard Disk Drive (HDD)
   expire unexpectedly. HP-UX (Hewlett Packard UNIX) is Hewlett-Packard's proprietary
   implementation of the UNIX operating system. There are no other manufacturers of HP-UX.

5. Determination by the Ordering Activity

   In accordance with FAR 8.404(d), this order represents the best value to the Government.

6. Description of Market Survey

   Although this equipment is proprietary in nature, all items are available through numerous
   resellers. With the progression and development of technology, the Marine Corps will
   continue to perform market research of industry components that are available through
   multiple resellers.

7. Other Factors Supporting Use of Other Than Full and Open Competition

   None.

8. Actions Taken to Remove Barriers to Competition

   The Contracting Officer will ensure the synopsis is complete when the requirement package is
   provided. Any responses received from alternative sources of supply will be fully evaluated.

9. Other Facts

   The total estimated dollar value for this contract action is approximately $. Funds to be used
   for this requirement are for FY2010 Navy Working Capital Funds.
