General: This requirement is being advertised as an UNRESTRICTED Single Award Task Order Contract, SATOC, for various Architect Engineer (AE) services, construction phase services (CPS) as it relates to the design, professional services, and design services required under this indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract. The SATOC is to support various Military and some Civil Works Construction Projects which are generally within, but not limited to the Southwest Region. It will allow the flexibility to share capacity with other Corps Districts, outside South Western Division (SWD) boundaries, but primarily for the Fort Worth District, at Fort Bliss, TX, and White Sands Missile Range, NM, in accordance with PL 582, Brooks AE Act, and implemented in FAR Part 36.6. The Southwest Region refers to the geographic area encompassing the States of AR, AZ, CA, LA, NM, NV, OK, and TX. A firm will be selected for negotiation based on demonstrated competence and qualifications for the required work. North American Industrial Classification System Code applicable to this project is 541330, Engineering Services, which has a size standard of $4,500,000, $4.5M, in average annual receipts and corresponds to SIC Code 8711. This announcement is OPEN TO ALL BUSINESSES regardless of size. The initial contract is anticipated to be awarded on or about October 2010. A single IDIQ contract may be awarded from this announcement, for a total cumulative estimated value of $95,000,000, $95M, with a minimum guarantee amount of $10,000, for a three year base period and two one year option periods for a total term of five years. The Government anticipates awarding task orders between $3K to $2,000,000. Some task orders may be above the estimated upper limit of the range. There is no guaranteed amount for the two one year option periods. The intent of this requirement is to award one contract for design and construction phase services as it relates to design and other projects under the $95M contract primarily for the Fort Bliss Expansion Program at Fort Bliss, TX, and for the program at White Sands Missile Range, NM. Only Architect or Engineering firms may compete for this contract per FAR 36.6. Price will not be used as a criterion for selection. Notice Organizational Conflict of Interest. The work to be performed may create an actual or potential organizational conflict of interest on future acquisitions. Offerors should refer to FAR subpart 9.5 ORGANIZATIONAL AND CONSULTANT CONFLICTS OF INTEREST. An organizational conflict of interest can arise when a contractor possesses an economic incentive that renders it unable, or potentially unable, to provide impartial assistance or advice; or an unfair competitive advantage in obtaining a contract as the result of access to nonpublic information about a competitor or procurement. When an organizational conflict of interest arises it can have serious implications for the contractor that can range from disclosure obligations to disqualification from an award. Accordingly, some restrictions on the future activities of the contractor and its subcontractors may be required. And, these restrictions may include prohibiting the contractor or its subcontractors from participating in a contract or a task order. The contractor or their subs may not be part of the Design Builders Engineers and Architects of record on future contracts. A contractor which participates in preparing design drawings or documents for future construction contracts may be prohibited from providing CPS for that contract. However, in future procurements, the contractor or its subcontractors may request a determination of its ability to participate in a particular procurement from the Contracting Officer. In the event this contract is used to develop design build supporting documents for use in a design build acquisition (FAR 36.302), the prime AE and sub consultants shall be prohibited from teaming with design build firms to compete in final design build construction solicitation in accordance with FAR 9.505-2. Proposals submitted for procurements or services for which the contractor or its subcontractor is later determined to have an organizational conflict of interest shall be submitted at the risk of the contractor or its subcontractors. b. Nature of Work: The services necessary for each requirement will be negotiated and awarded as individual task orders. The Architect Engineer (AE) shall furnish all personnel, services, materials, supplies, office space, and supervision required to fully complete each task order. The AE firm(s) will act as an independent contractor and not as an agent of the U.S. Government and shall in accordance with the terms and conditions of the contract furnish all labor and supervisory management required for the performance of the work that will be described in separately issued task order scopes of work. Task Orders issued against the contract awarded under this announcement may be used by other Corps of Engineers offices and other Department of Defense agencies. c. Contract Award Procedure: The proposed services will be obtained by a Negotiated Firm Fixed Price Contract. Task Orders issued against the contract awarded under this announcement may be used by other Corps of Engineers offices. To be eligible for contract award, a firm must be registered in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR). Register via the CCR Internet site at http://www.ccr.gov. If a large business firm is selected for this announcement, it must comply with the FAR 52.219-9 clause regarding the requirement for a subcontracting plan on that part of the work it intends to subcontract. The subcontracting goals for the Fort Worth District which will be considered in the negotiation of this acquisition are: (1) at least 70.0% of a contractors intended subcontract amount be placed with small businesses (SB); (2) at least 6.2% of a contractors intended subcontract amount be placed with Small Disadvantaged Businesses (SDB); (3) at least 7.0% of a contractors intended subcontract amount be placed with Women-Owned SB (WOSB); (4) at least 2.0% of a contractors intended subcontract amount be placed with Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned SB; (5) at least 9.8% of a contractors intended subcontract amount be placed with HUBZone SB, and at least 3.5% of a contractors intended subcontract amount be placed with Veteran-Owned SB. Additional Subcontracting Goal Considerations: Although the Department of the Army has not assigned goals in the subcontracting category of HBCU/MI, note that both the ISR and SSR Forms for subcontract reporting require other than small prime contractors to include HBCU/MI. Therefore, the following guidance is provided: In support of the HBCU/MI Program, contracts awarded that provide for HBCU/MI subcontracting opportunities should include a HBCU/MI subcontracting goal consistent with the anticipated subcontracting opportunities associated with work HBCU/MIs perform. The plan is not required as part of this submittal, but will be required with the fee proposal of the firm selected for negotiations. Before a small disadvantaged business is proposed as a potential subcontractor, they must be certified by the Small Business Administration and registered in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database. Failure of a proposed small disadvantaged business to be certified by the Small Business Administration at the time the SF 330 is submitted will result in their elimination as a proposed subcontractor. The Service Contract Act will apply to this acquisition. Professional Labor Rates will only be increased once every 12 months and any task order issued at any time within the 12-month period must use the rates of the period in which the task order is executed by the Contracting Officer. New rates go into effect only at the end of the 12 month period. The proposed services will be obtained by a Negotiated Firm Fixed Price contract. d. Program Intent: The AE firm(s) will act as an independent contractor and not as an agent of the U.S. Government and shall in accordance with the terms and conditions of the contract furnish all labor and supervisory management required for the performance of the work that will be described in separately issued task order scopes of work. Design and construction phase services as it relates to design are required to support construction activities and may include tasks supporting projects not yet in construction. The design work under the Military Construction program will be accomplished using the Land Development Engineering model developed for this size program on infrastructure and the Center for Standardization (COS) designs for the primary facilities. To accomplish the site and infrastructure work, the service of a firm experienced in site design and Land Development Engineering (LDE) is desired. The use of the terms AE firm and LDE will be synonymous throughout this announcement. The LDE will become integrated in the government Program Delivery Team. Task Orders issued under this contract will encompass all aspects of site development, site design, and the site integration. The LDE will also provide man power to assist the Government with project management and construction management services. The LDE must be able to provide design support and consultant services in various combinations of architectural, structural, civil, mechanical and electrical disciplines. The AE may be required to perform all or part of the following construction management, Request for Proposal preparation, design-bid-build efforts, and infrastructure design and development services.
