ERDC intends to award a purchase order on a sole source basis to RJK Consultants in accordance with FAR 13.106-1(b)(1).
Market research indicates that RJK Consultants is the only source for the this requirement because they have a proprietary 3-step approach to training the Heilmeier Catechism which has been used successfully on numerous Government and Commercial Organizations. RJK Consulting introduced this modified version of the Heilmeier Catechism during the Army Cross Functional Technologies deep dives in 2018, which proved very beneficial to the ERDC. In order to leverage the benefits gained during the deep dives, the ERDC requires training services, at the enterprise level, of the aforementioned modified Heilmeier Catechism in a train-the-trainer format. RJK Consulting shall train select individuals, using their unique three-step approach, to become trainers themselves to rapidly populate the knowledge of how to correctly use the Heilmeier Catechism throughout the organization.
No Other source is capable of replicating the training approach. Additionally RJK Consultants is the only source able to provide these specifications.
