22--Exercise of Option 1

Department of Energy, Federal Locations | Published March 4, 2002  -  Deadline April 18, 2002

MOX FUEL PROJECT - OPTION 1 The Chicago Operations Office of the Department of Energy plans to exercise Option 1 to Contract DE-AC02-99CH10888 for Mixed Oxide (MOX) Fuel Fabrication and Reactor Irradiation Services in support of the National Nuclear Security Administration's Fissile Material Disposition Program. The goal of this element of the program is to safely disposition 34 metric tons of U.S. surplus weapons-grade plutonium. To that end, DOE has pursued the transformation of plutonium oxide powder derived from the surplus plutonium to the spent fuel standard (making the plutonium as difficult to recover and as unattractive for use in weapons as the plutonium in existing commercial spent nuclear fuel). This requires both fuel fabrication and reactor irradiation services. It has been DOE's preference that both of these services be coupled and integrated by a single entity. On March 22, 1999, Contract Number DE-AC02-99CH10888 was awarded to the consortium Duke, COGEMA, Stone & Webster, LLC (DCS), currently located at 128 South Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC 28202, as a base contract with three options, for MOX Fuel Fabrication and Irradiation Services. These services include the design, construction, licensing, operation and deactivation of the MOX Fuel Fabrication Facility (MFFF); performing fuel qualification and fuel design activities necessary to obtain NRC approval for the use of MOX fuel in commercial light water reactors (CLWR's); performing reactor core design, reactor facility modification design and modifications, and licensing activities required to permit the irradiation of MOX fuel elements in CLWR's; design and procurement of fresh MOX fuel transportation packages; and the managerial and technical integration of all activities. The consortium approach has maximized private sector participation and provides for the coordination of all services within the consortium. The consortium approach also has encouraged traditional business relationships among fuel designers, fuel fabricators, reactor vendors, reactor operators, and architect-engineers, including retaining the long-standing relationship between utilities and their fuel fabricators. Negotiations and contractual relationships have also been simplified by the consortium approach. The initial ("Base") contract is a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract for facility design, license application, and fuel qualification activities. Specifically, the Base portion of the contract includes the following: � Design and initial licensing activities for the MFFF; � Fuel qualification activities, including fuel design activities; � Irradiation services activities, including reactor core design, the identification and design of required reactor facility modifications, and submittal of license amendment documentation; � Design of MOX Fresh Fuel Transportation Package and obtaining a Certificate of Compliance from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for the package; � Managerial and technical integration of all contract activities. The scope of Option 1 will include the following: � Construction management services to include procurement and management of all construction sub-contracts, procurement and installation of facility equipment, and Title III engineering; � Functional check-out and cold start-up of the MFFF; � Defense of required Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) licensing applications for the MFFF and mission reactors; � Performing required facility modification's to the mission reactors; � Procurement of fresh MOX fuel assembly shipping packages; � Managerial and technical integration of all contract activities. The selection of DCS for award of the base contract and the three options was the result of a competitive selection process involving a source selection board. The solicitation required prospective Offerors to provide an integrated technical approach to MOX fuel fabrication, qualification, irradiation, and transportation in a manner similar to standard practices in the commercial nuclear industry. By their nature, each of these technical elements is inextricably tied to the others. The source selection board determined that the technical approach proposed by DCS would result in the lowest cost and least risk method to meet the commitments of the Surplus Plutonium Disposition Program. The proposal submitted by DCS included the application of certain limited rights data, owed by the partner companies and subcontractors, in the performance of the contract statement of work. Because the work products developed during the Base portion of the contract are integral to the performance of Option 1 activities, so are the limited rights data provided by the DCS partners and subcontractors integral to the performance of Option 1. Any alternative technical approach to perform the Option 1 statement of work would require DOE to duplicate a significant portion, if not all of the contract costs incurred to date for the implementation of an alternate technical approach. Therefore, in accordance with FAR 6.302-1 "Only one responsible source and no other supplies/services will satisfy agency requirements", it has been determined that DCS is the sole designer, licensee, and construction manager of the MFFF, defender of NRC licensing documents for the MFFF and mission reactors, constructor of modifications to mission reactors, and purchaser of fresh MOX fuel assembly shipping packages. As such this option will be negotiated on a sole source basis with DCS. It is anticipated that a performance based Cost Plus Incentive Fee Option with a period of performance from date of exercise through March 2007 will be awarded. Performance will take place primarily in Charlotte, NC, Aiken, SC, and France. Though this option will be negotiated on a sole source basis with DCS, all responsible sources who believe they can perform the efforts described herein may submit a proposal detailing their capabilities which will be considered by the agency. Such capability statements may be faxed to Mr. David Hess at (630) 252-5045.

Small, women-owned, and small disadvantaged firms are strongly encouraged to participate as prime contractors or as members of joint ventures with other small businesses. Through the rehabilitation of an historic federal building, this project continues the legacy of outstanding public architecture. In accord with this tradition, the General Services Administration (GSA) Design Excellence Program seeks to commission our nation�s most talented designers and artists to prepare our historic federal buildings for the next 50 to 100 years of service. These projects are to demonstrate the value of integrated design that balances historic significance with current needs; balances aesthetics, cost, constructability, and reliability; creates environmentally responsible and superior workplaces for civilian federal employees; and gives public expression to our democratic values. In this context, GSA announces an opportunity for Design Excellence in public architecture for performance of architectural/engineering design in accordance with GSA quality standards and requirements. As required by law, all facilities will meet federal energy goals and security requirements. All projects will be LEED certified. PROJECT DESCRIPTION The project is the repair and renovation of the Robert S. Vance Federal Building and U.S. Federal Courthouse located at 1800 5th Avenue North in Birmingham, Alabama. The building maintains a prominent presence in the downtown financial / business district and is a local landmark and the historic symbol of the Federal presence in Birmingham. The historic structure is a four story marble and brick Neo-Classical style building constructed in 1921 with two floors added in 1926 and is approximately 17 350 gross square meters (gsm) 174,000 gross square feet (gsf) without parking. There are no interior parking spaces. The existing courthouse will maintain a total of four (4) existing courtrooms: one (1) historic district courtroom and three (3) bankruptcy courtrooms. The building will house portions of the District, Magistrate and Bankruptcy Courts; U.S. Attorney; U.S. Marshals Service; U.S. Probation; Senators Field Offices GSA and other federal agencies. This project will provide superior workplaces for civilian federal employees, and shall serve as an example of successful historic preservation while making a distinct architectural statement that is responsive to the existing character of the building. The design will follow the Secretary of Interior�s Standards for Rehabilitating Historic Buildings and Building Preservation Plan (BPP) guidance, respecting the existing historic character of the building while at the same time supporting the needs of a modern workforce. GSA will contract separately during the design phase for Construction Manager as Constructor (CMc) services and Construction Manager as Agent (CMa) services. The CMc and CMa will be active participants in the design process to provide (in addition to the A/E): construction expertise, estimating and cost information, and functionality and constructability reviews. SCOPE OF WORK The facility will be designed using English units of measurement with �soft metric� units shown in parentheses. The scope of professional services will require at a minimum: professional architectural, landscape architectural, engineering, interior design, and related consulting services for clear and concise communication of the design intent to contractors who will construct the work. The scope of work will require at a minimum: metric design development drawings, specifications, cost estimates, schedules, value engineering services, life cycle costing, space planning, computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) and construction phase services (option to be exercised at a later date) for a facility that includes the renovations and alterations to the existing building and related systems, site development and parking, client program requirements, and sustainable features. The facility must be designed to meet the energy goal established by GSA. The design is also to include the GSA design standards for secure facilities; P100-Facilities Standard for the Public Buildings Services; the Courts Design Guide requirements; the U.S. Marshals design requirements, and any other agency specific guidelines as part of the design. The design of the facility shall include sustainable design and construction practices following the LEED format with a requirement for Certification and will incorporate total building commissioning as defined by GSA design guides. There will be a formal partnering process throughout the design and construction phases to promote successful project development and execution through voluntary commitments to accomplish established agreed-upon project objectives by all involved parties to their mutual benefit. This building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Each design submission must be approved by the Regional Historic Preservation Officer, who will coordinate external review by the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) and Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, in compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act, Section 106. Design submissions will include a historic preservation report with captioned photographs and relevant design details identifying historic preservation design issues and solutions as they are developed. Every effort will be made to avoid adversely effecting original materials and design in the building�s preservation zones identified in the Building Preservation Plan. Alteration or removal of original materials and design elements requires special justification and a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the SHPO.

70 -- DHS First Source

Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Chief Procurement Officer | Published August 9, 2005

The Information Technology Acquisition Center (ITAC), within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Procurement Operations (OPO), plans to establish a DHS Information Technology (IT) department-wide contract for commodity products under the program name First Source. This procurement is being conducted by the ITAC in cooperation with the DHS Chief Information Officer (CIO) and the DHS Component IT and procurement communities. IT commodity products and solutions represents a significant portion of the DHS�s IT budget and are currently provided through a disparate collection of acquisition methods, including Component-centric contracts, task orders against General Services Administration (GSA) schedules and Government-wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs), and InterAgency Agreements. The establishment of a consolidated portfolio of multiple-award IT commodity contracts that are available for use throughout the Department is considered a primary ITAC objective. The First Source Program will support the DHS goal of a functionally integrated Department, promoting standardized equipment consistent with the Enterprise Architecture (EA) initiative among and between the various Components with the IT products and systems that enhance mission effectiveness and create economies of scale through the buying-power of the Department as a whole through consolidation of requirements. In support of its mission and strategic goals, DHS requires commercial IT commodity solutions for a wide variety of applications throughout the Department and its 22 Operating Components. DHS needs to access technological advances as they occur, and new business practices that may increase productivity, efficiency, and/or reduce costs while leveraging DHS�s Department-wide buying power to obtain competitive prices. Therefore, the purpose of this contract is to provide DHS with access to a wide variety of commercial catalogs for IT commodity products from multiple Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), producers, and suppliers. The resulting contracts will include, but not be limited to: IT equipment and software, networking equipment, wireless technology, imaging products, voice recognition technology; on-line data reporting services for order, delivery, warranty, asset, and spend tracking; and associated product maintenance, installation, and support. The First Source Program Objectives are to: 1. Maintain competitive prices for all offered IT commodity products by leveraging DHS buying-power by combining requirements on an enterprise-wide basis and through the contractor sponsored Dynamic Pricing Model; 2. Maintain continuous access to new IT technology consistent with the DHS Enterprise Architecture, as the technology is introduced to the commercial marketplace through the contractor�s commercial catalog; and 3. Meet DHS customer requirements for IT commodities, special delivery needs, and related services throughout the term of the contract. The First Source procurement is a Small Business set-aside using NAICS Code 541519; the business size standard is 150 employees. First Source is a complementary program to the EAGLE program. EAGLE contractors will use First Source as a �mandatory for use� source for any equipment requirements in their task orders issued under EAGLE. The First Source procurement will result in multiple IDIQ contracts. Contract term is a two-year base period with three one-year options. The Source Selection will be conducted using a best value analysis. Evaluation factors for award will emphasize price, technical and management solutions, and past performance. The number of contract awards for all commodities will be sufficient to maintain adequate competition for specific delivery orders for products during the entire term of the contract. Offerors will be required to propose their published, commercial IT commodity catalogs for any or all of the required products. Prices for products included in the offerors� catalogs will be based on the offerors� proposed Dynamic Pricing Model (DPM). The DPM is the offeror�s proposed pricing mechanism which is devised to continuously assure that the most competitive prices for its offered products are available to DHS for the duration of the contract. First Source is not intended as a direct replacement of any legacy small or large business contracts. Rather, the high level equipment descriptions are intended to provide sufficient flexibility to meet a comprehensive range of potential agency requirements. Specific requirements will be identified and defined at the delivery order level. First Source contracts will promote the use of performance-based contracting. Specific equipment requirements will be defined in individual delivery orders that will be competed prior to their issuance. Delivery orders will have their own delivery or performance period requirements. IDIQ contract guaranteed minimums will be set at $250. DHS intends to conduct an Industry Day in which senior DHS procurement and IT officials will provide an overview of their strategies and perspectives on both Department-wide and Component initiatives. The date for the Industry Day will be announced via FedBizOpps. Seating will be limited, therefore registration is on a first come first served basis and only two representatives from each company will be allowed. There is no registration fee associated with attending this event. Telephone reservations and inquiries will not be accepted. All vendors who respond to this announcement will receive an e-mail confirming their attendance for the Industry Day session. More information regarding the First Source Program can be found at www.dhs.gov/openforbusiness. It is anticipated that the First Source RFP will be released in early September 2005, via FedBizOpps, with contract awards in early CY2006. The draft First Source RFP is posted with this synopsis. Written comments received at dhsfirstsource@dhs.gov on or before August 26, 2005 will be considered for inclusion in the final First Source RFP. Due to the anticipated level of interest, the Contracting Officer will not entertain requests for vendor visitations or marketing calls, or respond to telephonic inquiries. Future information regarding First Source, including a complete list of Industry Day attendees, and vendor questions and DHS responses related to the First Source RFP, when posted, will be released to the public through the FedBizOpps and the DHS.gov website. Any inquiries shall be made in writing via email to DHS at dhsfirstsource@dhs.gov.
