DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS Justification and Approval (J&A) For Other Than Full and Open Competition (>$150K) 1. Contracting Activity: Department of Veterans Affairs Network Contract Office 12, NCO 12 Great Lakes Acquisition Center 115 South 84th Street, Suite 101 Milwaukee, WI 53214-1476 2. Nature and/or Description of the Action Being Processed: Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital, Hines, Illinois has a need for a new Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to award NRM and station level construction projects. Task Orders awarded under the IDIQ will be awarded as firm-fixed price actions. The period of performance will be one year and the contract will have a Not-to-Exceed amount of $500,000.00. Task Orders will be issued between $2,500.00 and $500,000.00 For this new requirement, NCO 12 proposes to establish a firm fixed price contract with Troop Contracting Inc., a Center for Enterprise (CVE) Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) under the Statutory Authority Permitting Other than Full and Open Competition FAR 6.302-5. P. L. 109-461 by a Request for Proposal RFP under FAR Part 15. 3. Description of Supplies/Services Required to Meet Agency Needs: The VA Medical Center has a requirement for NRM and station level projects for various types of work including but not limited to, carpentry, roofing, interior renovation, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, demolition, masonry, fire protection, telecommunications, and HVAC. Required Delivery Date: ASAP-The facility has numerous projects that must be awarded. The most recent construction IDIQ contract has a remaining capacity of $264,727.11. A replacement, $10M construction MATOC contract is in the planning phase with award planned for FY-2016. In the interim, the station only has one construction IDIQ contract vehicle in place. This sole source IDIQ to Troop Contracting is intended to bridge the gap between now and when the MATOC is awarded. The station already has seven NRM and twenty station level projects on the FY 2016 NRM spend plan that are planned to be awarded under this IDIQ. 4. Statutory Authority Permitting Other than Full and Open Competition: In accordance with 41 USC §3304(a)(1) as implemented by FAR 6.302-1: (X) FAR 6.302-5: Authorized or Required by Statute 5. Demonstr ation that the C ontr ac tor's Unique Qualificati ons or Nature of the Acquisition Requires the Use of the Authority Cited Above (applicability of authority): Public Law 109-461 and VAAR 819.7007 allows a contracting officer to make a sole source award as a business decision within the business discretion of the contracting officer. Although Troop Contracting is not the only SDVOSB contractor, it has been determined in the best interest of the government to award this contractor an IDIQ contract in order to meet NRM award goals and any other emergency task orders that may come up between now and September 2016. Troop Contracting Inc. is registered as a CVE verified SDVOSB in VetBiz. They have performed well on their most recent contracts at FHCC and Hines as well as their IDIQ contract with the 88TH USARC, and their stand-alone contracts at Downers Grove Grade School, Adler Planetarium, and Green Hills Public Library. 6. Description of Efforts Made to ensure that offers are solicited from as many potential sources as deemed practicable: There were no other vendors considered, as it is in the best interest of the Government to award this project as a sole source award and is authorized by statute, VAAR Part 819.7007 and 819.7008 Sole Source Awards to SDVOSB and FAR 6.302. The anticipated award price of the contract will exceed the simplified acquisition threshold (as defined in section 4 of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy Act (41 U.S.C. 403)) but will not exceed $500,000.00. 7. Determination by the Contracting Officer that the Anticipated Cost to the Government will be Fair and Reasonable: An Independent Government Estimate (IGE) will be prepared for each task order. A detailed cost breakdown will be provided by the contractor. The Government will perform price analysis of each task order. Costs will be evaluated to determine that the proposed price is fair and reasonable and reflects reasonable value. Historical costs will also be utilized. 8. Description of the Market Research Conducted and the Results, or a Statement of the Reasons Market Research Was Not Conducted: A search utilizing NAICS code 236220 was conducted to determine if other qualified CVE SDVOSB contractors would be able to meet the needs of this project. The VET Biz Registry - https://www.vip.vetbiz.gov/ website was utilized. The search resulted in the identification of 1177 CVE SDVOSB companies of which 75 were located in Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan. A further review of recent bid openings for VISN 12 solicitations indicated that between 6-12 CVE SDVOSB have submitted offers. Although there are other CVE SDVOSB listed under the applicable NAICS code, it is the contracting officer's determination that it is in the best interest of the Government to procure the construction services as a sole-source procurement. Troop Contracting's office is only 14.37 miles away from the Hines VA Campus so mobilization costs would be minimal. They have worked previous contracts and are familiar with the Hines various systems and utilities. The close proximity and previous experience are expected to save the government the time and cost of mobilizing a new contractor. They also have current JOC projects for the 88th RSC (US Army Reserve) at the Forest Park USARC, which is only two blocks from the Hines VA Campus. Having their resources so close would further reduce mobilization time and expense. 9. Any Other Facts Supporting the Use of Other than Full and Open Competition: Troop Contracting is ready to mobilize upon award of a contract and has completed other projects at the Hines VA facility. They provided exceptional service at a fair and reasonable price. 10. Listing of Sources that Expressed, in Writing, an Interest in the Acquisition: None 11. A Statement of the Actions, if any, the Agency May Take to Remove or Overcome any Barriers to Competition before Making subsequent acquisitions for the supplies or services required: None 12. Requirements Certification: I certify that the requirement outlined in this justification is a Bona Fide Need of the Department of Veterans Affairs and that the supporting data under my cognizance, which are included in the justification, are accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief. 13. Approvals in accordance with the VHAPM, Volume 6, Chapter VI: OFOC SOP. a.

DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS Justification and Approval (J&A) For Other Than Full and Open Competition (>$150K) 1. Contracting Activity: Department of Veterans Affairs Network Contract Office 12, NCO 12 Great Lakes Acquisition Center 115 South 84th Street, Suite 101 Milwaukee, WI 53214-1476 2. Nature and/or Description of the Action Being Processed: The Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital, Hines Illinois, has a need for a new Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract to award OI&T Data Drop construction projects. Task Orders awarded under the IDIQ will be awarded as firm-fixed price actions. The period of performance will be one year and the contract will have a Not-to-Exceed amount of $500,000.00. Task Orders will be issued between $2,500.00 and $500,000.00 For this new requirement, NCO 12 proposes to establish a firm fixed price contract with Industria Inc., a Center for Enterprise (CVE) Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) under the Statutory Authority Permitting Other than Full and Open Competition FAR 6.302-5. P. L. 109-461 by a Request for Proposal RFP under FAR Part 15. 3. Description of Supplies/Services Required to Meet Agency Needs: The Hines VA Hospital has a requirement for NRM and station level Telecommunication and Data Drop projects including, but not limited to, the management, design, materials, labor, and equipment to construct and/or renovate all structure, architecture, and utility features as required to perform the installation of voice and data communication lines. Cutting or drilling walls for jack box installations. Terminating and certifying cable ends, installing faceplates and numbering systems, and providing CAD as-built drawings. Pulling the physical transmission cabling, installing conduit and hangers, providing fire rated wall penetrations for cable runs, and installing and removing Infection Control measures per facility requirements Required Delivery Date: ASAP-The facility OI&T has numerous projects that need to be awarded during the 1st and 2nd Quarter of Fiscal Year 2016. The most recent award for Data-Drop and telecommunications expires on 16 November 2015, eleven calendar days from today. The station has requested a $3 million dollar, one year, IDIQ with 3 option years. They plan to submit a complete acquisition package to the GLAC no later than 15 June 2016. In the interim, the station has no telecommunication IDIQ contract vehicle in place. This sole source IDIQ to Industria Inc. is intended to bridge the gap between now and June 2016 when the IDIQ IFB is awarded. The station already has three Station Level projects that are planned to be awarded under this IDIQ. 4. Statutory Authority Permitting Other than Full and Open Competition: In accordance with 41 USC §3304(a)(1) as implemented by FAR 6.302-1: (X) FAR 6.302-5: Authorized or Required by Statute 5. Demonstration that the Contractor's Unique Qualifications or Nature of the Acquisition Requires the Use of the Authority Cited Above (applicability of authority): Public Law 109-461 and VAAR 819.7007 allows a contracting officer to make a sole source award as a business decision within the business discretion of the contracting officer. Although Industria Inc. is not the only SDVOSB contractor, it has been determined in the best interest of the government to award this contractor an IDIQ contract in order to meet NRM and station level award goals and any other emergency task orders that may come up between now and June 2016. Industria Inc. is registered as a CVE verified SDVOSB in VetBiz. They have performed well on their most recent contracts at the Hines VAH, as well as their last six similar contracts at the Jesse Brown VAH, Chicago, and the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital, Hines, Illinois. Industria Inc. has extensive knowledge of the Hines VA Hospital infrastructure. 6. Description of Efforts Made to ensure that offers are solicited from as many potential sources as deemed practicable: There were no other vendors considered, as it is in the best interest of the Government to award this project as a sole source award and is authorized by statute, VAAR Part 819.7007 and 819.7008 Sole Source Awards to SDVOSB and FAR 6.302. The anticipated award price of the contract will exceed the simplified acquisition threshold (as defined in section 4 of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy Act (41 U.S.C. 403)) but will not exceed $500,000.00. 7. Determination by the Contracting Officer that the Anticipated Cost to the Government will be Fair and Reasonable: An Independent Government Estimate (IGE) will be prepared for each task order. A detailed cost breakdown will be provided by the contractor. The Government will perform price analysis of each task order. Costs will be evaluated to determine that the proposed price is fair and reasonable and reflects reasonable value. Historical costs will also be utilized. 8. Description of the Market Research Conducted and the Results, or a Statement of the Reasons Market Research Was Not Conducted: A search utilizing NAICS code 238210 was conducted to determine if other qualified CVE SDVOSB contractors would be able to meet the needs of this project. The VET Biz Registry - https://www.vip.vetbiz.gov/ website was utilized. The search resulted in the identification of 697 CVE SDVOSB companies of which 31 were located in Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan. A further review of recent bid openings for VISN 12 solicitations indicated that between 6-12 qualified CVE SDVOSB have submitted offers. Although there are other CVE SDVOSB listed under the applicable NAICS code, it is the contracting officer's determination that it is in the best interest of the Government to procure the construction services as a sole-source procurement. Industria Inc. is still onsite completing another telecommunication contract. As such, they are already mobilized and are expected to save the government the time and cost of mobilizing a new contractor. 9. Any Other Facts Supporting the Use of Other than Full and Open Competition: Industria Inc. is already mobilized on site at the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital for the completion of VA69D-15-P-5227 - Installing Data Drops. Industria Inc. has completed other projects at several of the facilities in VISN-12 and provided exceptional service at a fair and reasonable price. 10. Listing of Sources that Expressed, in Writing, an Interest in the Acquisition: None 11. A Statement of the Actions, if any, the Agency May Take to Remove or Overcome any Barriers to Competition before Making subsequent acquisitions for the supplies or services required: None 12. Requirements Certification: I certify that the requirement outlined in this justification is a Bona Fide Need of the Department of Veterans Affairs and that the supporting data under my cognizance, which are included in the justification, are accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief. 13. Approvals in accordance with the VHAPM, Volume 6, Chapter VI: OFOC SOP. a.

PRE-SOLICITATION NOTICE: The Milwaukee VA Medical Center has a need for a multi-level parking structure. This project consists of the construction of a three-level Precast Concrete Parking Structure on the VAMC Milwaukee campus. The Parking Structure will be located above Parking Lot #4 directly opposite the hospital (Building 111) main east entrance. The Parking Structure foundation will be on auger cast piles, and the at-grade level will be comprised of poured-in-place concrete strengthened by fiber reinforcement. The limits of the construction project are Ambulance Way (south), Lincoln Drive (west), Warehouse Way (north), and Surface Parking Lot #5 (east). The Parking Structure will hold approximately 360 vehicles on four levels of parking: an at-grade level plus three (3) elevated tiers. Vehicle access to and egress from the Parking Structure will be from the north at Warehouse Way (Level "LL"). There will be one stair tower at the northwest corner, and one stair/elevator tower at the southwest corner. Pedestrian access to and egress from the Parking Structure will be at Level "1" at the southwest corner stair/elevator tower and Level "LL" at the northwest stair tower. The elevator tower consists of two hydraulic elevators which will traverse four distinct levels: LL, 1, 2, and 3. The Parking Structure will require three sources of electrical power from Building 111: Normal, Life Safety, and Equipment Emergency. There is limited HVAC and plumbing work including a water wash down system for deck maintenance and the appropriate drainage systems to existing sanitary and/or storm sewerage. Lighting in the Parking Structure will be primarily by LED lighting for energy efficiency and long-life benefits. For safety and security, there will be emergency "Talk-a-Phones at each level in each of the two stairwells. The Parking Structure will NOT be served by an emergency generator. Since the Parking Structure is an open-style structure, a fire suppression (sprinkler) system is NOT required. The main hospital Fire Alarm system will, however, be integrated with the new Parking Structure. There are some utility (storm sewer, electric light pole service) relocations as a part of this project. There are two WE Energies main electrical service feeds in the project vicinity, but at NO POINT should this project have to perform any main electric utility relocation work (already completed via separate contracts). Significant geotechnical investigations have already been undertaken and are part of the contract documents. Lincoln Drive will dead-end at the south end in the police parking lot and will not intersect with Ambulance Way so that pedestrians leaving the Parking Structure do not have to cross traffic. Ambulance Way will be converted to a one-way west-bound traffic road. There is minimal landscaping work on this project outside of a drainage swale between the Parking Structure and Lincoln Drive. This structure is located in the sightlines of a National Historic Landmark District. The design of this Parking Structure was required to meet standards imposed by the National Park System, Secretary of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines for Archeology and Historic Preservation. Energy Efficiency Requirements: Federal Executive Order #13423 requires all energy efficient materials, equipment and systems to be evaluated and, if feasible, incorporated into V.A. projects. The A/E, prime contractor, and all subcontractors shall cooperate with the Federal Government in specifying, evaluating, documenting, purchasing, and installing energy efficient equipment that meet basic energy efficiency criteria established by the V.A. The Criteria can be defined as comparing total energy savings to total life cycle cost of the equipment. To accomplish this objective, the A/E shall produce an Energy Equipment Schedule comparing a description of each standard piece of equipment (or system) vs. a description of recommended efficient equipment (or system); including the estimated purchase price, estimated cost to install, maintain, and operate the equipment as well as the estimated annual energy usage and estimated useful life for each piece of equipment (or system). All design and installation will be in accordance with current VAMC, HVAC design guides, NEC, NFPA, ASHRAE 90.1, state, local, and all VA and federal codes. Provide energy savings equipment and design modifications for current energy usage to the most efficient and economical level possible.

MODERNIZATION OF AN HISTORIC STRUCTURE GSA Design Excellence Solicitation for Lead Design Architect Solicitation:   GS-05-P-16-GB-C-7002 Region: Great Lakes (5) City: Milwaukee State: Wisconsin Contracting Officer: Helen DiMonte Phone Number: 312-590-9496 PROJECT: Milwaukee Facade, Milwaukee, Wisconsin BUILDING TYPE: Courthouse and Federal Office Building CLIENT AGENCY: U.S. District and U.S. Bankruptcy Courts SIZE: 543,510 GSF PARKING SPACES: Parking under the building for building tenants.  Street parking on three sides of building for law enforcement only. BUDGET: ECCA $21,376,181.00 APPLICABLE: FUNDING: Funds Are Not Currently Available TOTAL SMALL BUSINESS SET ASIDE:  100% Through the preservation and modernization of an historic federal building, this project continues the legacy of outstanding public architecture. In accord with this tradition, the General Services Administration (GSA) Design Excellence Program seeks to commission our nation's most talented designers and artists to prepare our historic federal buildings for the next 50 to 100 years of service. These projects are to demonstrate the value of integrated design that balances historic significance with current needs; balances aesthetics, cost, constructability, and reliability; creates environmentally responsible and superior workplaces for civilian federal employees; and gives public expression to our democratic values. In this context, GSA announces an opportunity for Design Excellence in public architecture for performance of architectural/engineering design in accordance with GSA quality standards and requirements. As required by law, all facilities will meet federal energy goals and security requirements. PROJECT DESCRIPTION The Milwaukee Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse, located at 517 East Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is a five-story, granite structure originally constructed between 1892 and 1899 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Between 1929 and 1932, a five-story addition was erected to the south of the original building which was later increased in height to seven stories during the 1940s. The building also features an open air light court at its center that extends down to the roof of the first floor.  Both structures have undergone various maintenance and modernization projects over the years, including a major, comprehensive restoration and renovation of both buildings between 1989 and 1996.  The building totals 543,510 gross square feet. In 2010, pieces of the granite façade broke loose from the building and fell to the ground. This occurrence prompted a study which provided an extensive stabilization plan. Structural netting was installed in 2011 as a temporary measure to prevent similar occurrences until the facade is restored. The exterior of the Milwaukee Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse is generally in good condition for the building's age.  GSA proposes to restore and/or stabilize the historic granite façade; primarily the stone cornices, gutters at the turrets, damaged granite corners and the balcony above the north entrance. The project also includes correction of failing gutters, tuckpointing, sealant repairs, and the treatment and preservation of: the exterior stone, the brick masonry, and their supporting steel structure. The primary concerns are the cornices at the six turrets of the North Building and the masonry cracking and displacement at the corners of the South Building.  It is believed that the cause of the spalling at the turrets are the lead-coated copper gutters which should be evaluated for replacement.
