Projects outside the primary mission area of responsibility may be added at the Government's discretion upon agreement of the A-E firm. Projects will be awarded by individual firm-fixed price task orders. The maximum cumulative contract value for each contract is $9,500,000. The contract period is a five year contract with no option years. Estimated contract start date is August 2015. The following factors will be used in deciding which of the awarded A-E firms will be selected to negotiate task orders: (1) Contract minimums - task orders will be distributed to assure the guaranteed minimums are met; (2) Unique specialized experience; (3) Past performance on previous task orders - the quality and timeliness of work delivered on prior jobs under the current contract; (4) Current capacity to accomplish the task order in the required time. If a large business is selected to negotiate a contract, the firm must comply with FAR 52.219-9 and Public Law 95-507 regarding the requirements to submit a subcontracting plan prior to award. In accordance with FAR 36.604 and supplements thereto, and upon final acceptance or termination, all task orders above $30,000 will receive a performance evaluation.

The maximum contract value for each contract is $5,000,000. These are five year contracts, with no option years. The estimated construction cost per project is between approximately $50,000 and $10,000,000. Up to two firms will be selected, the top ranked firm will be awarded the first contract, the second ranked firm will be awarded the second. Award of both contracts will be made within nine (9) months after award of the first contract provided there is sufficient workload. If necessary, secondary selection criteria will be used as a tiebreaker between firms considered as technically equal. The following factors will be used in deciding which offerors will be selected to negotiate task orders: performance and quality of deliverables, current capacity to accomplish the work in the required time, and uniquely specialized experience. The selected A/E firms may be required to attend a partnering meeting to define the District's expectations of the A/Es, create a positive working atmosphere, encourage open communications, and identify common goals.
