Solicitation No. 7FCM-C4-030073-B Schedule 73 Food Service, Hospitality, Cleaning Equipment and Supplies, Chemicals, and Services Synopsis: GSA MULTIPLE AWARD SCHEDULE (MAS) SOLICITATION. The Greater Southwest Acquisition Center, Fort Worth, Texas, is issuing a refreshed solicitation effective April 30, 2015 electronically. IMPORTANT: CURRENT SCHEDULE 73 CONTRACTORS DO NOT NEED TO RESPOND TO THIS ANNOUNCEMENT. Notice: The GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) program has recently experienced a tremendous increase in new offers. Due to the large number of new offers currently in process, it could take up to 12 months before your offer is evaluated. GSA's practice is to evaluate offers in the order in which they are received. However, GSA may give priority to processing certain offers when circumstances dictate, such as when a federal agency Contracting Officer specifically requests an expedited offer review in order to meet a pending requirement that will be procured under the MAS program, or when there a need for GSA to bring strategically critical new products or services to market in order to meet federal customer needs. This solicitation includes the following product/services: FSC Group 68: Chemicals and Chemical Products; FSC Group 72: Recycling Collection Containers and Waste Receptacles; FSC Group 73: Food Service Equipment, Supplies, and Services; FSC Group 79: Cleaning Equipment, Accessories, Janitorial Supplies, Cleaning Chemicals, and Sorbents; and FSC Group 85: Toiletries, Personal Care Items, Linens, and Lodging and Hospitality Supplies and Services, and Hospitality Wear.

Executive Order 13514 (http://www.fedcenter.gov/programs/eo13514/) requires that 95% of all new contract actions are designated for products and/or services through certification guidelines established by governmental agencies. In order to begin implementation of that order, GSA has designated these two SINs on Schedule 73, which will require qualifications. For SIN 302-49, all items, where applicable, must meet Energy Star or Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) requirements (where applicable), and be qualified Energy Star or FEMP compliant. Energy Star lighting specifications can be obtained through the website at http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=new_specs.luminaires. Information on how products earn the ENERGY STAR label can be found at http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=products.pr_how_earn. Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. For SIN 375-361 all items must be certified as Biopreferred by obtaining certification from the U. S. Department of Agriculture at www.biopreferred.gov. The solicitation will remain in effect until it is replaced by a refreshed solicitation. The Federal Supply Schedule period is continuous; contract periods commence on the date of award (DOA) and expire five years from the DOA unless further extended pursuant to option clause, Option to Extend the Term of the Contract (Evergreen), which allows the Government to extend the contract three additional five-year periods, not to exceed a total of twenty years. All contracts will be indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts with a $2500 guaranteed minimum for the contract period. All contracts to be awarded include Industrial Funding provisions. The Trade Agreements Act applies to this solicitation. Small Business Set-Aside provisions will be addressed in the individual product/services attachments to the solicitation. The section at the beginning of the Vendor Response Document providing instructions for submitting a paper offer should be disregarded; Schedule 73 is a mandatory eOffer schedule, effective with Refresh 10. Interested parties may access the solicitation at: http://www.fedbizopps.gov. This site provides instructions for downloading the solicitation files. Search using Solicitation Number 7FCM-C4-030073-B (include the dashes). To be the Government's leader in acquisition services, the General Services Administration (GSA) sets the highest standards for its acquisition programs. To that end, GSA has recently awarded eighteen (18) Blanket Purchase Agreements in support of the Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) for Janitorial and Sanitation Commodities (JanSan). In an effort to better allocate government resources and to improve our service to our customer base, GSA will temporarily postpone receipt of new offers under Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Schedule 73 for the following JanSan affected SINs: 375-100, 375-103, 375-107, 375-117, 375-125, 375-129, 375-135, 375-139, 375-200, 375-321, 375-323, 375-341, 375-351, 375-352, 375-353, 375-355, 375-356, 375-361, 375-362, 375-363, 375-364, 375-368, 375-371, 375-372, 384-2, 384-4, 384-9, 476-12, 476-13, 507-2, 507-4, 507-8, 658-1, 681-1, 852-1, 852-2 and 852-3 for the next twenty-four (24) months, effective January 16, 2015.

Request for Information (RFI) - Deep Borehole Field Test

Department of Energy, Idaho Operations | Published October 24, 2014  -  Deadline December 8, 2014
cpvs

U.S. Department of Energy Request for Information Deep Borehole Field Test Background Consistent with its Fiscal Year 2015 Budget Request, the Department of Energy is proposing to conduct a demonstration of the Deep Borehole (DBH) disposal concept. The demonstration will be built upon prior and ongoing research and development and design efforts. Multiple factors have indicated that the DBH disposal concept may be technically feasible and cost effective for safe disposal of some smaller DOE-managed waste forms in possibly many locations in the U.S. with favorable geological and hydrological characteristics. The Blue Ribbon Commission on America's Nuclear Future (BRC), created by the Secretary of Energy at the direction of the President, as part of its work, examined the work done on DBH disposal over the last decades in the United States and other countries. The BRC recognized the possible role the DBH disposal concept could play in the safe and effective disposition of nuclear materials, and the BRC specifically recommended more research, development, and demonstration of the DBH disposal concept. The Administration's Strategy for the Management and Disposal of Used Nuclear Fuel and High-Level Radioactive Waste specifically recommended developing a research and development plan for deep borehole disposal, consistent with BRC recommendations. The DBH disposal concept is to drill a borehole (or array of boreholes) into crystalline basement rock to a depth below surface of about 5,000 m (greater than 3 miles). In this disposal concept, waste canisters would be emplaced in the lower 2,000 m of the borehole, with sealing of appropriate portions of the upper 3,000 m of the borehole. The borehole seal system might consist of alternating layers of compacted bentonite clay and concrete, and asphalt might also be used in the shallow portion of the borehole seal system. Additional information can be found in "Reference Design and Operations for Deep Borehole Disposal of High-Level Radioactive Waste" SAND2011-6749, October 2011, http://prod.sandia.gov/techlib/access-control.cgi/2011/116749.pdf. The potential use of deep boreholes for waste disposal is similar to other examples of engineered geo-systems, such as geothermal energy production, in which science and engineering is used to appropriately modify the geosphere to achieve a societal goal. Using science and engineering, the natural system would be modified to create an engineered geo-system that is safe, efficient, and cost-effective. A DBH Field Test is the next logical step in evaluating the feasibility of the DBH disposal concept. Using science and engineering in a DBH Field Test would provide better understanding of the DBH disposal concept, without any use of radioactive waste. The DBH Field Test would be a scientific and engineering experiment, conducted at full-scale, in-situ. The field test would be well-instrumented and monitored with respect to materials, geology, hydrology, chemistry, and other sciences and engineering disciplines to provide enough measurements and data to provide a fundamental understanding of the disposal concept. In addition to the in-situ aspects of the DBH Field Test, there will be accompanying scientific and engineering laboratory tests and analyses, including numerical modeling. The DBH Field Test would provide an opportunity to develop state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and techniques. In addition, the data from the DBH Field Test would provide an opportunity to validate and potentially improve state-of-the-art numerical models. The DBH Field Test also would provide an opportunity to perform crosscutting experiments related to other scientific and engineering aspects of the subsurface. Besides waste disposal, there are interests in understanding deep and/or large borehole performance in such diverse fields as geothermal energy production, fossil energy production, and carbon sequestration. Although all these subsurface endeavors are commonly looking at different geologic and hydrologic conditions, such as crystalline vs. sedimentary rock; permeable vs. tight rocks; fractured vs. unfractured rock; and hot vs. cooler rock, there are nevertheless many common scientific and engineering challenges and interests. Some of the common challenges and interests include the following: Drilling techniques Wellbore stability Sealing techniques and materials Subsurface characterization and data acquisition Permeability measurement and/or modification Stress field measurement and modification Induced seismicity Geochemical characterization and/or modification/evolution Modeling techniques The Department of Energy will welcome and encourage discussions on incorporating in the DBH Field Test other tests, experiments, and measurements related to these other subsurface challenge areas. With this Request for Information (RFI), the Department of Energy is requesting information to measure the interest of communities in hosting a DBH Field Test. A community hosting the DBH Field Test may benefit by gaining a more thorough understanding of the local subsurface geologic and hydrologic characteristics that may permit better community management of local resources. Economic and scientific aspects of the DBH Field Test also may benefit the local community, policy decision makers and regulators, local and state government, universities, and other regional stakeholders in such other subsurface technical areas such as geothermal energy production, fossil energy production, and carbon sequestration amongst others. Purpose of DBH Field Test and Information Request The purpose of the DBH Field Test is to test drilling, monitoring capability and disposal feasibility of the DBH disposal concept for some smaller DOE-managed waste forms of radioactive wastes. The field test would not, however, include any use of radioactive waste. In addition, the DBH Field Test would provide an opportunity to gain insight into crosscutting subsurface challenges (e.g., drilling techniques, wellbore stability, sealing, etc.) across such diverse areas as geothermal energy production, fossil energy production, and carbon sequestration. The goals of the DBH Field Test are to: •1. Test the feasibility of characterizing and engineering deep boreholes •2. Test processes and operations for safe emplacement in deep boreholes •3. Confirm geologic controls in a deep geological environment •4. Test safety and practicality of the deep borehole disposal and retrieval, and borehole sealing concepts. The DBH Field Test would consist of local site characterization before drilling, drilling one or more boreholes of sufficient depth and diameter to permit appropriate geologic, hydrologic, thermal, chemical, and engineering testing, including in the borehole(s). It is currently planned to drill an initial characterization borehole of approximately 5km depth with a bottom-hole diameter of approximately 8.5 inches. Based on having positive results of drilling that hole, a second approximately 5 km deep borehole would be drilled with a bottom-hole diameter of approximately 17 inches. The purpose of this RFI is to seek the interest in, and input from, States, local communities, individuals, private groups, academia, or any other stakeholders willing to host a DBH Field Test. The following are preferred guidelines for a site for the DBH Field Test: •- Less than 2 km (1.2 miles) depth to crystalline basement •- Not at or proximate to a strategic petroleum reserve site •- Not near an urban area •- Site area greater than 1 km2 (about ½ square mile so that there is ample area for drilling operations) •- Distance greater than about 100 km (about 60 miles) to topographic slope of greater than 1º to avoid deep groundwater circulation •- Geothermal heat flux less than 75 mW/m2 •- Less than 2% probability within 50 years of peak ground acceleration greater than 0.16 g from a seismic event (generally indicative of area of tectonic stability) •- Distance to Quaternary age volcanism greater than 10 km (6.2 miles) •- Distance to Quaternary age faulting greater than 10 km (6.2 miles) - No known major crystalline basement shear zones or major tectonic features - Low density of petroleum drilling - Lack of known existing surface or subsurface anthropogenic radioactive contamination Responses to this RFI should include at a minimum the responder's extent of interest in providing a host site for the DBH Field Test; identification, ownership and description of any proposed host site; and discussion of how any proposed host site meets the above preferred location guidelines and state and local government approval requirements. Additional information could be included relevant to any other suitable characteristics or advantages of a proposed host site.
