Synopsis 49100421Q0138 Notice of Intent to Sole Source: Westlaw Government Subscription Renewal
The National Science Foundation (NSF) intends to negotiate a sole source purchase order with WEST PUBLISHING CORPORATION - FEDLINK Contract No. LCFDL19C0015) to provide Annual Subscription of the Westlaw Legal Solution to the Office of Inspector General (OGC).
We are using FEDLINK's Direct Express Option to ensure continuity of legal research services and avoid any lapse in service. FEDLINK does provide other legal research options, but they would not be able to provide the exclusive content that OGC receives via Westlaw. Further, there is a learning curve for attorneys using these services, so OGC would benefit from continuity of service under Westlaw.
The NSF anticipates the requirement shall be solicited as a firm-fixed-price (FFP) contract for Annual Subscription of the Westlaw Legal Solution, in the amount $90,566.16 for 12-months.
The proposed contract action is for services for which the Government intends to sponsor with only one source under the authority of FAR 13.501(a). This Notice of intent is not a request for competitive proposal. This synopsis is for informational purposes only.
