Architect-Engineering Services, Indefinite Delivery Contract, Not-To-Exceed $9.5M for the US Army Corps of Engineers Far East District in Seoul Korea

Department of the Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers | Published January 29, 2017  -  Deadline March 3, 2017
cpvs

SYNOPSIS:
1. CONTRACT INFORMATION This Indefinite Delivery multi-discipline contract is being procured in accordance with the Brooks Act (Public Law 92-582), as implemented in FAR Subpart 36.6, for A-E services to be performed for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Far East District (FED) throughout the Korean Peninsula. This is an unrestricted Brooks Act acquisition open to firms of all sizes. Firms will be selected for negotiation based on required demonstrated competence and qualifications for the required work, stated herein.
The Government intends to award up to two (2) Indefinite Quantity Contracts (IDCs), each with a maximum dollar amount of $4,750,000 with an ordering period of one (1) base year and one (1) option period for a possible total of two (2) years. The Government guarantees award of services valued at not less than $2,500 ("minimum guarantee amount") over the course of the ordering period. Services will be obtained through negotiated firm-fixed-price task orders against the IDCs resulting from this solicitation/synopsis. Individual task orders may be issued up to a maximum dollar value of $1,500,000.
2. PROJECT INFORMATIONThe IDCs resulting from this solicitation may be used primarily (but will not be limited) to support the Yongsan and Combined Forces Command (CFC) Residual Programs, and the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System (THAAD) to the Republic of Korea (ROK). The CFC Residual Program may involve construction or alteration of new or existing facilities currently located at the Yongsan Garrison, Seoul, ROK and utilized for command and control of combined U.S./ROK military forces engaged in the defense of the ROK. Design and construction of the CFC Residual Program facilities will likely take place at the same time as significant transformation and/or removal of existing Yongsan Garrison facilities is taking place in order to implement ROK plans to repurpose and transform the area in Seoul in which the Yongsan Garrison currently exists. Design and construction/alteration of CFC Residual Program facilities may proceed simultaneously with dynamic changes to master plans, siting, utilities and communications requirements at the Yongsan Garrison.
For the THAAD system, A-E contractor designs may be required to construct facilities in order to obtain Full Operational Capability (FOC) for the THAAD system. FOC facilities may be either Temporary, Semi-permanent, or Permanent construction to provide for sustained operation of the system at the tactical site. The scope of A-E work for FOC facilities may include design of: utilities, munitions storage, commercial power upgrades, road improvements, fuel facilities, storage, billeting and permanent security fencing.
Potential project requirements will be located at various U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine bases/camps/installations within the ROK. Typical design services that may be required include: cost estimating, design, planning, engineering studies, site investigations, environmental surveys and assessments, geotechnical surveys and reports, utility system and traffic studies and reports, preparation of DD Form 1391s, planning and design charrettes, A-E services during construction, and other general engineering activities, often of a military nature. The A-E firm(s) selected for negotiation of IDCs should have sufficient staff, flexibility and capability to fulfill design and engineering requirements on an as-needed basis, to be issued through task order solicitations. Given the classified nature of some of the facilities and projects anticipated, A-E firm applicants will be required to possess an approved U.S. Government Facility Clearance at the time they submit their qualifications statements.
The CFC Residual Program, the THAAD System deployment program and other design requirements may require the design of new military facilities, utility systems, and roads; and/or repairs, renovation, modification, or conversion of existing facilities, utility systems, and roads. Typical types of military facilities that are likely to be the subject of design services requirements include training facilities; administrative buildings; unaccompanied military housing; dining facilities; medical/dental clinics; communications facilities; fuel storage and dispensing facilities; religious and family, morale, welfare, and recreation facilities; athletic facilities; airfield structures; ammunition storage bunkers; vehicle maintenance facilities; roads & sidewalks; and utility systems that may include communications, power, water, gas, and sewers. Force protection measures, such as blast hardening, Collective Protection System (CPS) and Chemical Biological Radiological (CBR) protection are likely to be required for some facilities. Sustainable Design/LEED and Energy Policy Act 2005 requirements will be required for new facilities and may be required for renovation of existing facilities. Designs must be based on current technical criteria listed in UFC 1-200-01, DoD Building Code (General Building Requirements) or UFC 1-201-01, Non-Permanent DoD Facilities In Support Of Military Operations (where applicable), supplemented with additional criteria as indicated in individual task orders. Design deliverables should include approved local materials and construction methods that are compliant with U.S. standards and code criteria in order to facilitate the use of local methods and materials. Designs and prepared drawings must be accomplished using Computer-Added Design (CAD) and Building Information Modelling (BIM) and must comply with the current A/E/C CAD standard available from the CAD/BIM Technology Center, USACE Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC). Construction contracts resulting from required design services may be awarded by either the FED or Host Nation agencies, which will require design documents to be prepared in both the English and Korean languages. Cost estimates must be prepared using the Corps of Engineers Micro Computer Aided Cost Estimating System (MCACES)-Second Generation (MII), for which software and training will be provided by the FED. Project cost estimates for construction contracts to be awarded by host nation agencies, primarily the ROK Ministry of National Defense (MND), will be required to be prepared in the detailed format prescribed by the host nation agency. These estimates are extremely detailed and require a level of effort not typically required of most construction cost estimates. The details of these requirements will be included in the Scope of Work distributed with the RFP to the most highly qualified A-E firms.

1. The US Forest Service, Region 1 - Northern Region has a requirement for Architect/Engineering services, indefinite quantity indefinite delivery contracts for Materials Testing and Geotechnical Services for the National Grasslands and Forests in North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and North Idaho. Architect/Engineering firms which meet the requirements described in this announcement are invited to submit: (1) a SF 330 Part II, General Qualifications, (2) a SF 330 Part 1, Contract Specific Qualifications and (3) any requested supplemental data to the procurement office shown below. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code is 541330/541380 with a size standard of $15 million. Following an initial evaluation of the qualifications and performance data submitted, one or more firms considered to be the most highly qualified to provide the type of services required, will be chosen for negotiation. Multiple firms may be selected from this announcement. Selection of firms for negotiation shall be through an order of preference based on demonstrated competence and qualifications necessary for the satisfactory performance of the type of professional services required that include (1) Professional qualifications; (2) Specialized experience and technical competence in the type of work required; (3) Location in the general geographical area; (4) Capacity; (5) Past performance. The projects performed under this contract will primarily focus on professional services to provide Geotechnical, Pavement and Materials engineering and associated Materials Testing services predominately to the Northern Region (Region One). The work involves engineering services related to low-volume roads, tunnels, dams, and facility design and construction in Region One of the US Forest Service. Required services are primarily in the areas of asphalt, chip seals, concrete, aggregate surface, and aggregate stabilized pavements; construction materials testing and inspections on all types of roads and facilities; inspections, investigation, analysis and design for pavements, small (earthen) dams, hydraulic structures, landslides, retaining structures, foundations, and rock sources. Only firms with Registered Professional Engineers licensed in one of the States of Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota with eligibility for reciprocity in one or more of the other states will be considered for award of the contract. The Contractor's associated laboratory must be nationally accredited by AASHTO or equivalent in Asphalt, Concrete and Aggregate Testing. The Government may elect to award a single or multiple Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity Contracts for the same or similar services to one or more sources for professional road (pavement) Construction Materials Testing, construction monitoring, and geotechnical services for the Region. The contracts will be issued as a one-year base contract with four one-year options (potential of five years). However, the Government reserves the right to award only one contract for the combined areas. Task orders will be issued as needed to accomplish the work. Contract time will vary with each individual task order. The Architect-Engineering firm must demonstrate its, and each key subcontractor's, qualifications with respect to the published evaluation factors for all services. Contractor qualifications will be assessed using the criteria outlined below. Evaluation factors are listed in order of importance to the Government. Specific evaluation factors include: 1. Professional qualifications necessary for satisfactory performance of required services: Offeror will address criteria in SF 330. Professional qualifications of great importance to the Government include licensing of skills applicable to this work in the state(s) services will be performed and experience in the type of services required. Specifically small dams, secondary/low traffic roads, and aggregate surfaced roads is more valuable than experience provided on interstate highways or large water barriers (dikes, levees, or dams). Of less value is an offeror with minimum number of qualified personnel on the team; or team that does not have a history of working together. 2. Specialized experienced and technical competence in the type of work required: Offeror will address in SF 330. Specialized knowledge, skills, and abilities of great importance to the Government include experience and expertise in low-volume asphalt and chipseal pavements; small dams; hydraulic structures; landslides; retaining structures; foundations; rock sources; aggregate and stabilized aggregate surfaced roads; and secondary roads such as parks, camp grounds, small developments, etc. Offerors demonstrating experience only in major highways, large bridges, major water barriers, on flat terrain will not have the same understanding of the required design considerations and associated problems typical of the small/lower volume facilities on steep Forest lands and therefore will be rated lower. 3. Location in the general geographical area of the project and knowledge of the locality of the project. Offeror is required to demonstrate an understanding of hazards when traveling on Forest roads to project sites; an understanding of the types of remote areas project sites may be located; unique and varied geological features found in the Northern Region. The variety of unique and complex geological features common to the North West and Northern Mid-West areas of Region1 include all types of bedrock structure, with random and frequent structural discontinuities, overlain frequently with glacial deposits. The more familiar a team is with these unique geologic features and the associated common design and construction problems, the more effective and efficient they will be designing solutions and solving problems. As a result, teams with project experience in this or similar geologic regimes will be given a higher rating; offerors less familiar will be rated lower; offerors that have no experience working in such geology will be rated unsatisfactory. Offerors familiar with working in remote areas subject to limited communication, changing weather conditions, exposure to dangerous or aggressive wildlife will be rated higher than those that have worked in urban environments and mild climates. Offerors will also frequently be required to deliver and pick up samples and conduct specialized tests at the Regional Forest Service Materials Laboratory in Missoula, Montana. 4. Capacity to accomplish the work in the required time: Offeror is to provide information regarding team ability and capacity to perform multiple tasks over a broad area in a short construction season. Offerors demonstrating the ability to efficiently mobilize and respond to a broad variety of services located on multiple Forests will be rated higher than those having to travel considerable distances or have limited resources for field investigation and inspection portion of these services. Offerors may be required to provide services in a very short turnaround to meet construction acquisition deadlines. 5. Past performance on contracts with Government agencies and private industry in terms of cost control, quality of work, and compliance with performance schedules. Offerors record of satisfactory performance in providing similar services to Federal and State land management agencies in the North Western part of the US during the past 3 years. Offerors are required to provide a list of references that will be randomly checked by the Government. Firms demonstrating a track record of customer satisfaction for similar work in similar conditions will be rated higher than firms that have not performed to customer satisfactory, or have not performed similar work under similar conditions. In addition to the technical evaluation criteria, the Forest Service may administratively elect to consider the volume of work previously awarded to the A&E firm 1) to determine which of the most highly qualified A&E firms should be awarded a particular project and/or 2) as a method to permit qualified A&E firms to gain experience so that they can compete as a most highly qualified firm on future A&E contracts. Type of contract is a Firm Fixed Price Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity. The duration of this contract will be for 1 year from the date of initial award with 4 - one year option periods. The cumulative total amount available for all awards made (including one or more contracts, all option years and all task orders issued under all awards) is $5,000,000.00. The minimum guarantee for each contract awarded (including option years) will be $1,500 or the value of the first task order if it exceeds $1,500. The options may be exercised within the time frame specified in the resultant contracts at the sole discretion of the Government subject to workload and/or satisfaction of the A&E performance under the contract. The proposed contract is being solicited as a total small business set-aside. All contractors are advised that registration in the System for Award Management (SAM) is required prior to award of a contract. Failure to register initially in the SAM Database may render your firm ineligible for award and failure to update your registration yearly may render your firm ineligible for option year renewals. For more information, check the SAM Website at: http://www.sam.gov. Solicitation packages are not available. This is not a Request for Proposal. Responses are to be sent to the following address: US Forest Service, Northern Region, ATTN: Loren Ebner, 24 Fort Missoula Rd., Missoula, MT 59804. Responses are due no later than 2:00 p.m. MST, March 21, 2017. Late responses will be handled in accordance with FAR 52.215-1. Electronic (e-mail, facsimile, etc.) submissions are not authorized.
