A Sources Sought notice was posted on the Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) website on August 23, 2017 and closed on August 29, 2017. No responses were received. Justification for Sole Source The Nature Conservancy located in Arlington, VA 22203 is the only source of this item based on the company has through separate efforts, been working to monitor water quality along the West Hawaii shore to detect patterns in water quality, and thus marine habitat quality, related to potential hotel/resort impacts. Due to the sensitivity of water quality information related to magnitude of individual resort impacts, The Nature Conservancy is in a unique position to work in a confidential setting with resorts to identify the most harmful impacts in coordination with resort practices based on water quality data results, and then assist the resort in the development of a plan that addresses the most harmful impacts. Thus, it is in the best interest of the National Marine Fisheries Service to save time and costs, and to utilize previously collected sensitive water quality data to facilitate marine conservation.
