(5) SRI International is uniquely qualified for this sole source procurement by virtue of a combination of experience and performance. 2. (S/NOFORN) SRI International is a recognized leader in the field of psychoenergetics and has performed similar work for other U.S. Government agencies over the past few years. Previous work, under DIA contracts MDA-9O8--S1-C--0292 and MDA-908--92-C-0034 has formed a highly meaningful data base which will greatly enhance the value and effectiveness of this new contractural effort. 3. (S) The effort involved for a new contractor to research the same level of capability and expertise that SRI currently possesses for this area would be too time-consuming and uneconomical to acquire and develop. To acquaint a new contractor in this area of expertise, if he could be found, would require several years simply to achieve the present level of expertise and competence possessed by SRI Interriat.ional, \'VAr N1NG nn~~0 CE: SF NS!
