    Can a federal agency hire professional planning and engineering services from a single firm without soliciting multiple firms


    Answer

    No, Brookes act requires you to select the most qualified offeror for A/E services.  You do not take low bidder for A/E services. If after the solicitation goes out and that firm happens to be the most qualified according to your criteria then you can negotiate the contract with that offeror.  You need to have justification to for why this is the most qualified to do the work.
