SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS:
SF330, Part 1, Section F.  For the proposed team, provide in Section F a maximum of ten (10) completed recent relevant projects along with description of correlated A-E support services rendered (Department of Defense SPECSINTACT program, cost estimates utilizing the MII cost estimating system, Functional Analysis and Concept Development (FACD), Request for Proposal (RFP) documentation for Design-Build (DB) and Design-Bid-Build (DBB) projects, MILCON engineering studies and MILCON Region/FEC Team 1391 project documentation ).  Professional services of relevant projects submitted must have been completed within five (5) years.  If more than 10 projects are submitted for evaluation, the Government will evaluate the first ten projects and disregard any other project information after the first ten projects.
Section F, Block 24.  Each project shall include (1) project title; (2) location; (3) year completed; (4) project owner; (5) point-of-contact name, e-mail address, and phone number; (6) contract number or project identification number; (7) contract performance period; (8) contract award amount; (9) estimated construction cost; and (10) description of project and relevance to this solicitation.  A project is defined as either a stand-alone contract or a single task order in an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract.  The Government will not evaluate information provided for an IDIQ contract and will only evaluate individual task order information.
The submission shall include a discussion of who executed the project as pertinent to demonstrating the firm’s specialized experience.
If a project was performed by a joint venture (JV), and all JV partners are not on the team proposed for this solicitation, the offeror should specifically address the work performed on the project submitted by the proposed JV partner(s).  If the project description does not clearly delineate the work performed by the proposed JV partner(s), the project will be evaluated less favorably. Likewise, if the proposed JV partner(s) worked as a subcontractor on a project, the offeror should specifically address the work performed by the proposed JV partner(s) on the project submitted.  If a project does not provide requested data, accessible point-of-contact, or valid phone number, that project may be evaluated less favorably.

The Government reserves the right to cancel this solicitation, either before or after the closing date for receipt of proposals. In the event the Government cancels this solicitation, the Government has no obligation to reimburse an offeror for any costs."
The 354th Contracting Squadron is seeking qualification packages and past performance information from vendors interested in providing professional architect and engineering services at Eielson AFB, AK to renovate Permanent Party Dorm (Bldg 2262) for F-35A program requirements.
BACKGROUND: Existing Permanent Party Dorm (bldg. 2262) provides housing for enlisted personnel at Eielson AFB, Alaska, and is intended to enhance their quality of life. The existing building consists of three floors above grade containing the dorm rooms and a basement level with storage and a day room. In order to meet the required program components for the arrival of the two F-35A Permanently Assigned Aircraft (PAA) squadrons, renovations must be made to the existing dorm building. The existing building is not up to code and Air Force standards. It currently has out-of-service-life equipment. The current HVAC system does not meet current safety code. The building does not have an existing fire alarm and mass notification system. Room use changes also require updating to house the two F-35A PAA squadrons. Because of these out-of-date systems, energy consumption in the existing building would continue to be high when compared to comparable facilities with incorporated energy efficiencies. This effort also serves to boost morale of the incoming F-35A airmen, aiding in the success of the new F-35 program at Eielson Air Force Base.
