Notice of Intent to Sole Source 49100421Q0045 - Developing and Implementing an Outward Mindset Virtual Workshop

The National Science Foundation (NSF) intends to negotiate a sole source purchase order with THE ARBINGER COMPANY to provide Developing and Implementing an Outward Mindset virtual workshop.

The Geoscience (GEO) Directorate has used Arbinger to facilitate training of senior leaders throughout the Directorate. Arbinger focuses on the root cause of most organizational problems that employees often unknowingly work with an inward mindset, focusing on their own needs, challenges, and objectives without an awareness of their impact on others. No other organization offers this training. It is a proprietary curriculum.

GEO aims to continue the mindset training for all GEO staff beginning with the front office. The proposed retreat aims to resolve any possible internal problems and achieve breakthrough results by maximizing the extent to which employees work with an outward mindset, taking into account their impact on others and focusing on the needs of the organization as a whole. With an outward mindset, GEO staff will be better prepared to address their challenges and achieve superior results. Arbinger have a unique, proprietary, methodology that will assist in building a stronger front office team that in turn will allow GEO to better serve the needs of the directorate and the agency.

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 proposal. This synopsis is for informational purposes only.
