Sole Source Justification New Holland Agriculture requires only authorized resellers of replacement parts for their equipment. Of three local area vendors contacted, Chappell Tractor provided pricing deterring any possibility of freight charges and could meet the specifications required for successful performance. In order to avoid the duplicative cost of freight, $---.--, and in the unfortunate event a return because of warranty it is determined to be in the best interest of the Government to award a sole source contract to Chappell Tractor. Furthermore, the estimated repair time for the required parts is 16 man hours. Additional wait time to receive parts could be multiple days. This would impact the New Boston Air Base Civil Engineering Sq ability to complete tasks/projects because of the small number of construction equipment assigned. Contact was made with three local authorized resellers of New Holland Agriculture parts. Because of the extensive amount of parts required and available to repair the asset only Chappell Tractor, Kahn Tractor & Equipment Inc., and Townline Equipment Sales were the only companies able to meet the requirement. Kahn Tractor & Equipment, Inc. is located in central Connecticut, more than 100 miles from Hanscom AFB. Ordering through Kahn would add freight charges, and coordinating the delivery of parts could potentially delay repairs. Townline Equipment Sales provided a quote to repair the hydraulic pumps and motors, even though they were instructed that New Hampshire Hydraulic confirmed they could not be repaired.
