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.

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.

Architect-Engineer (A-E) Environmental Engineering Services at Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL)

National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Marshall Space Flight Center | Published February 9, 2017  -  Deadline March 13, 2017
cpvs

NASA MSFC has a requirement for continuation of Architect-Engineer (A-E) Environmental Engineering Services at Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL) located in Ventura County, California for environmental remediation, compliance, and monitoring services at SSFL. NASA MSFC intends to procure these services from CH2M Hill, Incorporated (CH2M) pursuant to FAR 6.302-1(a)(1), which implements the authority of 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1) when an Agency's need for supplies or services is available from only one responsible source that will satisfy Agency requirements and FAR 6.203-1(a)(2)(iii)(B), unacceptable delays in fulfilling the Agency's requirements.
For over fifty years, the SSFL was utilized for the development, test and validation of various rockets engines, fuels and solvents. The fuels and solvents were used to test and maintain the propulsion systems and testing facilities which have over the years collected in the ground water and caused contamination. Federal and State environmental laws require remediation of the affected areas followed by a period of monitoring. California law requires that remediation be sustained, without cessation, through completion. This effort will provide professional engineering with experience in investigation and clean-up, natural resources specialists, cultural resources specialists, chemists, risk assessors, community relations specialists, hydrogeologists, regulatory compliance, remediation services needed to maintain compliance with state and federal environmental regulations, and respond to legally enforceable Consent Orders signed with Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC).
Competition is impractical at this time for the following reasons:a. CH2M is uniquely qualified to perform this scope because the required schedules in the Consent Orders are extremely challenging, with many interrelated components currently managed by CH2M to achieve the interim and final deadlines. For example, CH2M is primarily responsible for the efforts to develop the Groundwater RFI (RCRA [Resource Conservation and Recovery Act] Facility Investigation) and the Groundwater Corrective Measures Study and the Soil Remediation and Implementation Plan (SRAIP) for two areas of SSFL, which are critical path milestones that directly support the DTSC Decision Document, currently scheduled for May 2018. The schedules for these tasks, as well as related tasks, are achievable if there are no impacts to the ongoing and planned work being performed by CH2M. However, there is significant risk that the schedules will not be met should there be a disruption in the services CH2M is currently providing or if a contract transition occurs prior to NASA satisfying the cleanup requirements.
b. Award to any contractor other than CH2M would cause NASA to incur unacceptable risk in meeting the mandated SSFL cleanup schedules. Also, contracting with any other source would result in significant inefficiencies because no other source has the background and established relationships with the regulatory agencies. CH2M staff possesses the support contractor institutional knowledge and expertise related to the basis for the cleanups at SSFL. In addition, the contractor possesses significant credibility with the regulators and public at SSFL related to these cleanups. It is critical that the aforementioned expertise and experience be retained, particularly at this phase of the cleanup schedule when most of the engineering and planning decisions which will directly influence NASA's remaining costs and schedule.
The Government does not intend to acquire a commercial item using FAR Part 12.
Interested organizations may submit their capabilities and qualifications to perform the effort in writing to the identified point of contact not later than 4:00 p.m. CST on March 13, 2017. Such capabilities/qualifications will be evaluated solely for the purpose of determining whether or not to conduct this procurement on a competitive basis. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed effort on a full and open competition basis, based upon responses to this notice, is solely within the discretion of the Government.
Oral communications are not acceptable in response to this notice.
All responsible sources may submit an offer which shall be considered by the Agency.
NASA Clause 1852.215-84, Ombudsman, is applicable. The Center Ombudsman for this acquisition can be found at http://prod.nais.nasa.gov/pub/publibrary/Omb.html.
