The selected 8 (a) firms will be required to perform at least 50 percent of the contract work with the prime's labor force in accordance with FAR Part 52.219-3. 3. SELECTION CRITERIA: Selection criteria for this acquisition are listed below in descending order of importance (first by major criterion and then by each sub-criterion), Criteria: Architects-Engineers primary criteria: items (f)-(h) are the secondary criteria and will only be used as "tie-breakers" among firms that are essentially technically equal. (a) Specialized Experience and Technical Competence: Ensure that all special experience requirements are reflected on appropriate personnel resumes in Section E, Part I of the SF 330. The firm must demonstrate expertise in the following and must highlight the areas that meet these requirements so the reviewers can find that the requirements have been met: (i) Recent experience, within the past five (5) years from the closing date of the synopsis, and significant/specialized experience in the design of new and existing military or military type facilities (for example a civilian motel is similar to a military barracks) and utility infrastructure and design of repairs, renovations and alterations of existing facilities and infrastructure at Military Installations paying particular attention to area architecture and conditions, utility systems, landscaping, interior design, value engineering and environmental issues. There must be a minimum of three (3) examples, of such recent experience showing specialized experience and technical competence in the design of Military type facilities with over $300,000 in design fees by your firm. The dollar value limitation will apply to cumulative past design experience within the past 5 years-not individual examples greater than $300,000. Specify the dollar amount of design/A-E Services actually performed by the firm on all the projects submitted. For example, if the firm performed $100k of mechanical design on a $2M project, submit the amount of design/A-E Services as $100k, not $2M. Failure to do so will cause rejection of the submittal. If the project is an IDIQ-show projects designed under the individual task orders. Do not just show an IDIQ as a project. The Government must see what the project actually consisted of. Military construction experience will be given more weight than military type construction projects. (ii) Firms must demonstrate the capability to design projects to LEED certification criteria and to perform ASHRAE Level I, II & III Energy Audits. (iii) Firms must demonstrate at least five (5) years' experience, from the closing date of the synopsis, in Fire Protection and Life Safety Design in the use and application of NFPA codes 70 and 101. Experience with UFC 3-600-01, Design: Fire Protection Engineering for Facilities, which replaced MIL-HDBK 1008C, is also acceptable. It is insufficient to assert that the firm can meet these requirements. Show specific projects and list what codes they have been designed under. This applies to all of section 3 a requirements-show projects that meet the requirements and highlight how the requirements are met. (iv) Firms must demonstrate experience in design and survey (including use of X-ray fluorescence devices) required for abatement of asbestos and lead-based paint. (v) Firms must demonstrate past performance in preparing studies, design-build solicitations and design-bid-build solicitations, at Army and Air Force installations is preferred. (vi) Firms must demonstrate the ability to prepare construction cost estimates, using the MII program, latest version, is preferred. (b) Professional Qualifications: This Indefinite Delivery Contract (IDC) will require the A-E Contractor to demonstrate that all expertise requirements are reflected on key personnel resumes in section E, Part I of the SF330. When a minimum number of years/experience is listed, it is from the closing date of the synopsis. Evaluation of each discipline will consider education, registration, relevant project experience within the last ten (10) years, and longevity with the firm. The asbestos/lead-based paint survey personnel shall demonstrate (listed experience on their resume) experience with x-ray fluorescent devices. Repeat Resume Page as needed to provide all required resumes. The following is a list of the key personnel, minimum requirements and the minimum number required under this acquisition. These minimum requirements can be met utilizing in-house or consultants/subcontractors. Do not list a subcontractor as your firm's employee. This will be cause for rejection of the SF330. (i) Two (2) Project Managers, minimum of five (5) years' experience, on vertical construction type projects, PMP certification highly desired. Saying an individual has for example ten years' experience without showing at least one project that was completed five years ago or longer will be cause for rejection of the submittal. Three (3) registered Civil Engineers, Three (3) registered Structural Engineers, Three (3) registered Architects, Three (3) registered Electrical Engineers, Three (3) registered Mechanical Engineers, Two (2) registered Environmental Engineers, One (1) geotechnical Engineer, One (1) certified Environmental Survey person (asbestos, lead-based paint, soil, etc), One (1) environmental design person (asbestos, lead-based paint, soil, etc), One (1) certified Cost Estimator with MII experience. One (1) licensed professional Land Surveyor and one (1) survey crew Each discipline shall have a minimum of five (5) years' experience in their field of expertise for all positions listed in this paragraph except for the survey crew. If the experience listed in the resume doesn't go back at least the five years that are required, the submittal will be rejected. Engineers and architects shall have a degree from an accredited university engineering or architectural program (ABET, NAAB). The cost estimator does not have to be a PE or registered architect. Cost estimator must be certified by AACE, Tri-Services, or any of the nationally recognized cost estimating certification organizations. Saying an individual has for example ten years' experience without showing at least one project that was completed five years ago or longer will be cause for rejection of the submittal. (ii) One (1) qualified Fire Protection Engineer (A qualified fire protection engineer is defined as an individual meeting one of the following conditions: An engineer having a Bachelor of Science or Master of Science Degree in Fire Protection Engineering from an accredited university engineering program plus a minimum of five (5) years of work experience in fire protection engineering); or a registered professional engineer (P.E.) who has passed the fire protection written examination administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineers and Surveys (NCEES); or a registered P.E. in a related engineering discipline with a minimum of five (5) years' experience dedicated to fire protection engineering that can be verified with documentation; None of the required personnel can be dual disciplined, i.e. a separate employee must be provided for each stated requirement above to meet the number required. Ensure that resumes are provided for each of the required architects, engineers and other personnel specifically required. Resume for the licensed professional Land Surveyor is required. Resumes for the survey crew are not required. (c) Past Performance: Past performance on DoD contracts with respect to compliance with contract and task order terms, quality of work, adherence to schedules, cost control, communication, and issue resolution as determined by ACASS and Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS).

If the JV doesn't have any ACASS ratings an ACASS report will be retrieved for each JV partner. ACASS reports will not be retrieved for the subcontractors that are proposed. (d) Capacity: Firms must demonstrate adequate team capacity to concurrently complete the design of three (3) projects (total value of all three (3) projects at least $350,000) within a six month timeframe. The three (3) projects must be of the type listed in paragraph 2 above and for purposes of this criteria shall be presumed to be at three (3) separate locations, not within the same military installation or city. (e) Knowledge of Locality: Firms must demonstrate familiarity with the SWD areas, primarily Texas, (by showing projects designed in these areas) and their applicable architecture, building codes, environmental regulations, soil conditions, seismic requirements and regulatory agencies. The following items (f)-(h) are the secondary criteria: (f) Volume of DoD contract awards: In Section H, Part I, SF 330, firms must show their past 12 months DoD contract awards stated in dollars (see details in subsequent paragraph 4(f)). Include awards to all branch offices. (g) Geographic Proximity: Proximity is the physical location of a firm in relation to the location of a project. The primary geographic location of this contract is the Fort Worth District area of responsibility. (h) Utilization of Small Business Firms: The extent of participation of SB, SDB, historically black colleges and universities (HBCU), and minority institutions (MI) will be measured as a percentage of the total anticipated contract effort, regardless of whether the SB, SDB, HBCU, or MI is a prime contractor, subcontractor, or a joint venture partner; the greater the participation, the greater the consideration. 4.
