Synopsis 49100418Q1109: License Renewal Services of Accuity's Routing and Transit Number File
The National Science Foundation (NSF) intends to negotiate a sole source purchase order with the Accuity Inc to provide licenses renewal for the database registry of Routing Number Information for electronic funds transfers.
Accuity Inc. ("Accuity") serves as the Official Registrar of the Routing Number System for the American Bankers Association ("ABA"). Since 1911, with the exception of the very few numbers assigned to government agencies by the Federal Reserve System, Accuity has been the sole source for assigning and retiring routing numbers for every institution that meets the criteria established by the ABA. Specifically, Accuity provides assigned, changed, or retired routing numbers to every financial/savings institution, bank and credit union in the United States. Accuity is uniquely qualified to offer and manage an up-to-date database registry of routing number information for electronic funds transfers and maintains "location-based" routing number data files. Accuity publishes this information in a variety of directories and also has the U.S. Routing Number information available via the Internet, in preformatted software, and in electronic files.
The proposed contract action is for services for which the Government intends to sponsor with only one source under the authority of FAR 13.106-1(b). This notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposals. This synopsis is for informational purposes only.
