The Request for Quote number is RFQE014724-A and is unrestricted.  The North American Classification System Code is 334220; the size standard is 750 employees.  This RFQ incorporates provisions and clauses that are in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular 2005-56.  This requirement will be awarded on an all or none basis as a commercial item, fixed price purchase order under the procedures at FAR Parts 12 and 13.  This RFQ is for Brand Name only in accordance with 6.302-1 (c).  

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has a requirement for a one time fixed price purchase of the following products manufactured by Motorola:

           Item:  Motorola Astro Tac 3000 Comparators 
           Quantity: 10

Motorola no longer manufactures this generation of equipment; however, it is still employed by the FBI and replacements are required. 

The FBI's existing land mobile radio (LMR) system was built by Motorola and consists of Motorola Quantar repeaters and AstroTAC receivers operating in P25 mode. The Motorola Astro TAC 3000 comparator is the only voting comparator which is compatible with the aforementioned LMR equipment for system expansion. The Motorola system also employs a unique encoding design and feature sets which are proprietary to Motorola, as Motorola is the original equipment manufacturer and copyright owner, and are representative of "Intellectual Property" and covered under multiple copyright restrictions.   

Consequently, only Motorola equipment can replace the required comparators.
