I'd ask for help to rewrite your simulation in SAS.  If it's easy,
then you don't have much of an argument; if it's hard, you do.

If you can't get anyone to help you write your simulation in SAS, then
that in itself should be an argument for R:  you've got it now, and
won't have it if SAS is a requirement.
