ORR is an office within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) which is a division of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). On March 1, 2003, the Homeland Security Act of 2002, §462, 6 U.S.C. § 279, transferred the functions under U.S. immigration laws regarding the care and placement of Unaccompanied Children (UC) from the former Immigration and Naturalization Service to the Director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).

ACF is continuing to develop efficient, cost-effective strategies to address the historical variations in border crossings by UC. Every effort is being made to avoid a future increase in border crossings by children. At the same time, it is important for the Federal government to be prepared to provide humanitarian care when necessary.
Scope of ServicesThe services and supplies contemplated under this Cost Reimbursement, Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract are described below.

Cadre Staff RequirementsAll Program management, coordination of operations, labor, supervision, and materials to support all recruiting, screening, credentialing, training, and data tracking systems to establish and maintain a cadre of assets to ensure the rapid availability of scalable staff assets based on local capacity and need for temporary shelter services. Based on the size and nature of the increase of UC crossing the U.S. border, the ORR will surge to meet the needs of the children. Staff shall have the requisite certification(s)/licensure and specific knowledge, skills, abilities and training required, including but not limited to CPR/First Aid training, to perform the task(s) to which they have been assigned.
Anticipated Period of PerformanceThe anticipated Period of Performance (PoP) will be from February 8, 2017 through February 7, 2018 for the base year and four (4) one year option periods.

All measurements shall be made in ascending grave number order. In irregular terrain where sloping and uneven ground conditions exist, all flat markers will be set up to surface at proper heights and levels to provide a uniform flowing transition through uneven terrain. Two (2) to three (3) inches of clean topsoil will be placed around the perimeter of each flat marker base and firmly tamped, leaving the top inch for sod and then lightly to moderately tamped, then lightly raked and flat marker swept clean.
Flat Marker Placement (L1) (J1): Flat marker sockets shall be completed to proper grade and alignment as described in paragraph (d) prior to the reinstallation of the flat marker to the required depth. Markers shall be accurately and precisely reinstalled on the correct gravesites with the utilization of temporary grave plotting maps.

All measurements and string line set-ups shall be taken from section layout control markers, unless directed by the COR. All measurements shall be made in ascending grave number order.

After all work has been completed, the flat markers in all soil and terrain conditions shall be held firmly in place by the compacted soil (crushed limestone base material) (or approved substitute) so that the flat markers are rigid with no give, play or movement when subjected to forces by the COR.
New or replacement flat markers shall be properly aligned with four flat markers -- one marker immediately to the left, one marker immediately to the right and shall be in perfect alignment with the flat marker directly above and below. The flat marker will set parallel with the contour of the ground, and be raised or lowered as necessary to ensure uniformity of no more than one inch above topsoil level. The flat marker is squared front to back, side to side, keeping the (TOP) HEAD & SIDE of the marker along the heavy string line.
Alignment of the flat marker should be checked frequently during this process to ensure that the marker is not out of alignment. Flat markers shall be firmly set and anchored in place with no movement from force subjected by the COR.
