Explanation:

Maritime Combat Systems team, part of the UK Ministry of Defence, intends to award a contract for up to 5 years for the value of approximately GBP 0.8 million (ex VAT) to BAE Systems Inc (BAES) for the In-Service Support of Sonar 2117.

Sonar 2117 is the Royal Navy’s Environmental Risk Management Capability (ERMC), achieving Full Operating Capability in May 2001. It is a software tool that is used to assess the impact of tactical active sonar deployment and the potential harm to marine mammals. FLEET are required to undertake Sonar Risk Assessments (SRA) prior to active sonar transmissions which are retained by platforms for audit purposes where the RN could be open to legal challenge in the event of a marine mammal stranding. 50 % of the S2117 software is Proprietary to BAE Systems including the object codes.

It is considered that this contract can be placed using the negotiated procedure without prior publication pursuant to Article 28 (1)(e) of Directive 2009/81/EC (Regulation 16 (1)(a)(ii) of the Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011). This is for reasons connected to the unique technical knowledge held by BAES which make it the only contractor able to complete the requirement. Furthermore there are exclusive rights belonging to BAES as the original equipment manufacturer/system design authority contractor who developed Sonar 2117 and no licences have been granted to enable any third party to complete this work on their behalf.
