ART IN ARCHITECTURE PROJECT GSA Synopsis for Artist Services Artist Services Synopsis Number: AiAsylpoePhase2 FBO Classification: R499 NAICS: 711510 Description: The General Services Administration (GSA) Art in Architecture Program commissions American artists (citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents or Permanent Workers of the United States) to create publicly scaled and permanently installed artworks for federal buildings nationwide. GSA announces an opportunity for a federal art commission in conjunction with the modernization and expansion of the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry in San Diego, California. GSA will modernize and expand the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry to better meet the needs of its tenants: U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Border Patrol, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The project entails the phased reconfiguration and expansion of the existing facility to improve pedestrian and vehicular processing, increase operational efficiency, provide greater officer and public safety, decrease operational and maintenance costs, and improve the traveler's experience of crossing the border. The full build-out consists of the demolition and construction of the new port, including primary and secondary inspection areas, administration building, pedestrian building, and other supporting structures. The project is being implemented in three phases, as follows: Phase 1 - Northbound vehicle throughput with associated inspection facilities and southbound pedestrian facilities; Phase 2 - Northbound pedestrian facilities and the historic customs house; Phase 3 - Southbound Interstate-5 realignment with associated inspection facilities and employee parking structure. Phase 1 is completed and Phase 3 is underway. This announcement is specifically for Phase 2. GSA allocates one-half of one percent of the estimated construction costs of new or modernized federal buildings for art commissions. The art budget for Phase 2 of the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry project is estimated at $895,000. One or more artists will be awarded a fixed-price contract for a commission. Artists who wish to be considered for this and all future GSA art commissions must submit application materials to GSA's National Artists Registry (Registry). The Registry constitutes the qualified list of artists for this and all GSA commissions. Instructions on how to join the Registry are available on the following Web site: www.gsa.gov/artinarchitecture All artists who wish to be considered as candidates for a commission at the San Ysidro Land Port of Entry in San Diego, California, must have their application materials submitted and received by GSA by 12:00 PM Pacific Time on Friday, October 23, 2015. Artists' submissions received after the deadline will not be considered for this project, but will be eligible for consideration on future GSA commissions alongside the other artists on the Registry. Artists already on the Registry need not resubmit, but may elect to update their information prior to the deadline. GSA evaluates artists based on the following criteria: the media, materials, content, style, and scope of the artist's past work, along with the artist's past performance and experience with commissions or projects similar to the one described in this synopsis. Short-listed artists will be contacted and asked to submit additional information including a statement that he or she can perform the work associated with the GSA commission within the identified budget. GSA will count the combined weight of all the selection criteria as significantly more important than price. At a minimum, the scope of services for this commission will require: collaboration with the lead designer selected for the building project; development of preliminary and final concepts; fabrication of the artwork; participation in meetings and conservation reviews as necessary; and the installation of the artwork at the project site.

DESCRIPTION: ALL INFORMATION NEEDED FOR INTERESTED PARTIES TO SUBMIT A STANDARD FORM (SF) 330, ARCHITECT-ENGINEER QUALIFICATIONS, IS CONTAINED HEREIN. THERE IS NO SEPARATE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) PACKAGE TO DOWNLOAD. THIS IS AN 8(a) SET-ASIDE PROCUREMENT. A market research study was conducted by NAVFAC Southwest that included an assessment of relevant qualifications and capabilities of potentially qualified firms (March/April 2014). Upon review of the research, the Washington DC office of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) determined that an 8(a) set-aside procurement is appropriate (June 2014). The NAVFAC SW small business office concurs with the set-aside determination. Architect-Engineer (A-E) services are required for a firm fixed-price Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract for New Construction and Renovation/Repair of Small Scale Buildings and Facilities. Projects under this contract will occur at various military installations located in the NAVFAC Southwest Area of Responsibility (AOR): California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The preponderance of work will be at Navy and Marine Corps installations in southern California. The Offeror/Contractor must demonstrate adequate in-house staffing capable of self-performing (see definition) at least 50-percent of the cost of the contract as required by FAR Clause 52.219.14 (c)(1) Limitations on Subcontracting. Required are A-E services for various projects including, but not limited to, new construction, renovation, repair, and alteration (see definitions) of a variety of facilities and sites. Types of projects may include, but are not limited to, commercial, institutional, industrial, operational and training, research and development, medical, and quality of life facilities. A-E services shall be in accordance with the scope of the contract, applicable references, and Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC), such as, High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirements, Fire Protection Engineering, Antiterrorism Standards, etc. The number of design task orders per fiscal year may vary and may involve surges of multiple projects with overlapping delivery dates. Primary A-E services required: Preparation of Request for Proposals (RFP) for Design-Build (DB) projects; Design-Bid-Build (DBB) construction contract packages (i.e., full plans and specifications); site investigations to support new development of facilities on raw land and/or renovation of existing facilities on developed sites. Secondary A-E services required: Studies/reports related to the designs of new facilities and/or renovation/repair of existing facilities; cost estimates; post construction award services (PCAS). Support A-E services which may be required: Technical reviews of government-prepared RFP for DB projects and/or full plans and specifications for DBB projects; preparation of planning and programming support documents; coordination of various technical disciplines, such as, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, fire protection, geotechnical, and environmental; identification and abatement methods for existing asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paint, and other hazardous materials. The maximum contract value may not exceed $10,000,000 aggregate total. The minimum guarantee for the contract is $5,000. The minimum guarantee for the entire contract term (including option years) will be satisfied by the award of the initial task order. The minimum value of individual task orders executed under this contract is $5,000. The maximum value of individual task orders executed under this contract is $300,000. There will be no dollar limit per year. Multiple task orders may be awarded with similar completion schedules and overlapping delivery dates.

The Government may exercise the option period unilaterally. Per NFAS 17.208-100(c)(1), options for PCAS may be negotiated on individual task orders for unilateral exercise. The estimated start date is June 2015. The NAICS Code for this procurement is 541310 (Architectural Services) and the annual small business size standard is $7.5 Million. The Government makes no representation as to the number of task orders or the actual amount of work to be ordered. The contractor is not guaranteed work in excess of the minimum guarantee. Firms that design or prepare specifications for a construction contract or task order issued under the resulting contract are prohibited from providing the subsequent construction. This limitation also applies to subsidiaries/affiliates of the firm. SELECTION CRITERIA AND SUBMITTAL REQUIREMENTS: Brooks Act (PL 92-582) and Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Part 36.6 selection procedures apply. The evaluation and selection will be based on the following criteria: Criterion 1, Professional Qualifications; Criterion 2, Specialized Experience and Technical Competence; Criterion 3, Capacity; Criterion 4, Past Performance; Criterion 5, Location and Knowledge of the Locality; Criterion 6, Quality Control; and Criterion 7, Volume of Work. Submitted SF330s (Architect-Engineer Qualifications) and related information will be evaluated to determine the most highly qualified firm based on criteria responses. Criteria 1 and 2 are considered most important and of equal importance to each other; Criteria 3, 4, 5, and 6 are of lesser importance and listed in descending order of importance; and Criterion 7 is of lesser importance and will be used as a tiebreaker among firms considered to be technically equal. Evaluation of past performance and experience may include information provided by the firm, customer inquiries, Government databases, and publicly available sources. Failure to provide requested data, accessible points of contact, or valid phone numbers may result in a firm being considered less favorably in the evaluation. In evaluating an Offeror’s capability, the Government will consider how well the offeror complied with these instructions. All projects provided in the SF 330 shall have been completed by the office/branch/individual team member actually performing the work under this contract. Projects not performed by the office/branch/individual team member will be excluded from evaluation consideration.

However, this does not preclude the Government from utilizing previously submitted PPQ information in the past performance evaluation. Submitted ACASS and PPQ evaluations will not be counted as part of the 30 page limitation and shall be attached to the SF330, behind the SF330 Part II document. For projects provided as experience in Section F, list and provide copies of any applicable performance awards received (not counted in the 30-page limitation). Clearly indicate to which Section F project the award applies; otherwise the information may not be considered. CRITERION 5, LOCATION AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE LOCALITY: The evaluation will consider the team’s location, demonstrated knowledge of and project experience within the geographic areas where projects are anticipated for this contract. The preponderance of the work will be at Navy and Marine Corps installations in southern California.

Describe: 1) Present workload and capability to integrate work under this contract with other work; 2) Methodology the prime A-E will use to execute a minimum of 50% of the contract value with in-house personnel; 3) Capacity to accomplish multiple task orders simultaneously with overlapping delivery dates; and 4) Strategy to meet surges in unexpected workload demand. CRITERION 4, PAST PERFORMANCE: The evaluation will consider the Offeror’s past performance on relevant Government and/or commercial projects regarding quality of work, cost control, compliance with performance schedules, and customer satisfaction, with emphasis on example projects presented in Section F. The evaluation will be based on past performance assessments and other available past performance information. Points of contact provided in the proposal may be contacted. Where there is no record of past performance, the proposal will be evaluated neither favorably nor unfavorably. Superior performance ratings on relevant projects may be considered more favorably in the evaluation. Submission Requirements: Submit a narrative to demonstrate the firm’s past performance in effective project cost control. Include a description of the firm’s cost estimating procedures and project cost control methods. Note: this refers to estimating and controlling the cost of the construction, and does not refer to the labor cost of performing the design services. Provide budget amounts, final construction cost estimates, and actual construction contract award amounts for five (5) of the projects submitted in Section F. Explain any differences between estimated and actual costs. For projects provided as experience in Section F, list and provide copies of any applicable design awards received (not counted in the 30-page limitation). Clearly indicate to which Section F project the award applies; otherwise the information may not be considered.

(a) The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers. (i) TECHNICAL CAPABILITY OF THE ITEM TO MEET THE GOVERNMENT REQUIREMENT (ii) PAST PERFORMANCE (iii) PRICE Technical and past-performance, when combined, are approximately equal to price. (b) Factor (i) – Technical Capability. Offerors proposals will be evaluated first under Factor (i) above, which represents MINIMUM acceptable criteria. Under this factor, products offered will be determined to be either technically acceptable or unacceptable. A “will comply” statement without accompanying technical specifications of services being offered is automatic failure under this factor. Failure to meet the minimum criteria will render the offer to be technically unacceptable and may be eliminated for consideration for award. Only those Offers which meet the minimum requirements established by Factor (i) as delineated in the SPECIFICATION sheet will be further evaluated under Factors (ii). (c) Factor (ii) - Past Performance Grading Criteria. Past performance will be rated on an “acceptable” or “unacceptable” basis using the ratings in Table 1 below: TABLE 1 PAST PERFORMANCE RATING Rating Definition Acceptable Based on the offeror’s performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that the offeror will successfully perform the required effort, or the offeror’s performance record is unknown. (See note below.) Unacceptable Based on the offeror’s performance record, the Government has no reasonable expectation that the offeror will be able to successfully perform the required effort. Note: In the case of an offeror without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available or so sparse that no meaningful past performance rating can be reasonably assigned, the offeror may not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably on past performance. Therefore, the offeror shall be determined to have unknown past performance. In the context of acceptability/unacceptability, “unknown” shall be considered “acceptable.” Accordingly, the Contracting Officer reserves the right to determine that a higher-priced proposal with an Acceptable rating on Past Performance may be more advantageous to the Government than a lower-priced proposal with also Acceptable rating but without a record of Past Performance. Aspects of Past Performance evaluation. The past performance evaluation results is an assessment of the offeror’s probability of meeting the minimum past performance solicitation requirements. This assessment is based on the offeror’s record of relevant and recent past performance information that pertain to the products and/or services outlined in the solicitation requirements. There are two aspects to the past performance evaluation. The first is to evaluate whether the offeror’s present/past performance is relevant or not relevant to the effort to be acquired. For the purpose of this solicitation, “relevant past performance” is any contract completed by the offeror within the last three (3) years of approximately equal value and is/are similar to the requirement herein – i.e. video wall matrix. Sources of Past Performance Information for Evaluation are as follows: - Provided by the offeror – use attached template: CORPORATE EXPERIENCE and PAST PERFORMANCE INFORMATION FORM - May also be obtained by the Government from any other sources available, to include, but not limited to, the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS), Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), Electronic Subcontract Reporting System (eSRS), or other databases; interviews with Program Managers, Contracting Officers, and Fee Determining Officials; and the Defense Contract Management Agency. The evaluation team will review this past performance information and determine the quality and usefulness as it applies to performance competence assessment. (d) Factor III – Price . A Firm Fixed Price contract award will be made to offeror whose offer is determined to be the lowest priced technically acceptable offer. Price analysis, if needed, will be used to determine the total evaluated price to support the selection of the lowest priced, technically acceptable offer. This combined synopsis/solicitation will close at 12:00 (noon) pm PST on 15 May 2015. Submit quote via email to Isabelito.Cabana@navy.mil using subject line: RFQ N0024415T0058 PLANAR VIDEO WALL MATRIX. All responsible sources may submit a quote which will be considered by the agency.
