CONTRACT INFORMATION: Two contracts are being procured in accordance with the Brooks Act as implemented in FAR Subpart 36.6, AFARS 5136.6 and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Acquisition Instruction (UAI) 36.6. Firms will be selected for negotiation based on demonstrated competence and qualifications for the required work. Fixed-Price Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts for Architect-Engineering (A-E) Services are required to support the Baltimore District's Real Property Services Field Office (RSFO) programs. Firm-fixed price task orders will be issued under these contracts based on the requirements of FAR Part 36.6 and EP 715-1-7. The majority of the work will be for RSFO and other Baltimore District projects, but the contracts may be used throughout the North Atlantic Division or by any other USACE District with proper approval. The awards will be made under North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 541330, Engineering Services, which has a small business size standard of $15,000,000 in average receipts. Two awards will be made, each with a five-year period and a capacity of $49M. The acquisition will be unrestricted and therefore open to all business regardless of size. Task orders will be issued for A-E services for various military, intelligence community, and other government agencies. Anticipated start date is fourth quarter of FY15. An active TOP SECRET Facility Clearance is required at the time the offer is due, at time of award, and throughout the life of the contract. In the event of a Joint Venture (JV), the clearance requirement will apply to the JV. This means that the entity identified submitting the SF330 must have the TOP SECRET Facility Site Clearance in that name along with the matching Cage Code. For example, if Company A and Company B forms a Joint Venture called Company AB, then Company AB must have an active TOP SECRET Facility Site Clearance at the time the offer is due, at the time of award, and throughout the life of the contract. Even if both Company A and Company B each individually posses the clearance, unless Company AB possesses its own TOP SECRET Facility Site Clearance, the proposal will not be eligible for award. The firm must be capable of responding to and working on multiple task orders concurrently. Task orders will be awarded based on the contractor's current workload and its ability to accomplish the order in the required time, geographic location, type of services required, previous installation experience, including customer satisfaction, and performance and quality of deliverables under the current IDIQ. Project sites may be located anywhere within the continental United States (CONUS) or Hawaii. A contract may be issued up to one year after selection.

The extent of commitment to use such firms (enforceable commitments will be considered more favorably than non-enforceable ones); c. Identification of the complexity and variety of the work small firms are to perform; d. The extent of participation of small business prime Offerors and small business subcontractors in terms of the percentage of the value of the total acquisition; e. The extent to which the Offeror meets or exceeds the goal of 25% Small Business Participation. This goal is based on the total contract value.
