Notice to Award a Sole Source Purchase Order:
NTT AMERICA, INC.
101 Park Ave FL41
New York, NY 10178-4195
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Acquisition Management (OAM) Climate Protection Partnership Division (CPPD) intends to award a sole source fixed-price contract for hosting and collocation services. The purchase order provides information technology support, including collocation professional services and data center bandwidth and space for the Energy Star network ensuring connectivity, redundancy and secures operation. With NTT America’s institutional knowledge of this major extensive involvement and unique knowledge of these services it is in the best interest and best value of the Government to sole source this service. Market research revealed that moving to another hosting and collocation facility would cause EPA thousands of dollars plus EPA would risk damage to equipment. It is in the government’s best interest to award this order to NTT in the amount of $117,000.00. Under the authority of FAR part 6.302, this is neither a request for proposal nor a solicitation for offers.
