Anticipated Sole Source Awards

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is committed to transparency in all of its contracting programs. While we strive for full and open competition in the procurement of goods, services and construction wherever possible, per the Airports Authority’s Contracting Manual, the Airports Authority is authorized, with proper approval, notification and justification to award sole source contracts.

The following is a list of sole source contracts with an estimated value of over $50,000 which the Airports Authority anticipates awarding in the near future. In cases where the anticipated value does not exceed $200,000, notices will be posted a minimum of 15 calendar days prior to the anticipated contract award date. When the award value is anticipated to exceed $200,000, the notice will be posted for a minimum of 15 calendar days, after which it will be submitted to the Airports Authority’s Board of Directors for approval of the award.

If you believe that your firm can fulfill any of the anticipated contractual requirements listed below, please complete the Airports Authority's Statement of Capabilities Form, available below, and e-mail it to contracting@mwaa.com or hand deliver it to 2733 Crystal Drive, Arlington, VA 22202 prior to 5:00 PM on the posted deadline date.  All submissions shall be reviewed to determine if competition exists.

1-18-B041: Cable TV (CATV) Services, National Airport
Description: Reliable access to television improves both safety and security at the Authority by providing access to news and information (for example, most Authority Vice Presidents have a television in their office, as well as continual feed at the Public Safety Communication Center and other emergency response locations) and support morale, providing entertainment options in break and lunchrooms. Comcast is one of three CATV providers franchised by the Arlington County Government and thus, geographically, to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. The other two providers, Verizon FIOS and RCN (formerly Starpower), do not provide business cable television services and programming to both DCA locations. Thus, effectively, there is no other reasonably available source for the required utility services other than Comcast.
