Eastern Red Cedar control

PERFORMANCE WORK STATEMENT (PWS)Eastern Red Cedar Control at North Alabama Bend PART 1GENERAL INFORMATION 1. GENERAL: This is a non-personnel services contract to provide eastern red cedar control. The Government shall not exercise any supervision or control over the contract service providers performing the services herein. Such contract service providers shall be accountable solely to the Contractor who, in turn is responsible to the Government. 1.1 Description of Services/Introduction: The Contractor shall provide all personnel, equipment, supplies, facilities, transportation, tools, materials, supervision, and other items and non-personal services necessary to perform eastern red cedar control as defined in this Performance Work Statement except for those items specified as Government furnished property and services. The Contractor shall perform to the standards in this contract. 1.2 Background: The property, known as North Alabama Bend, was purchased by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 2009 as part of the Missouri River Recovery Program. This program is designed, in part, to restore and enhance biological diversity and hydrological processes associated with the Missouri River. The 546 acre property is adjacent to the Missouri River with approximately 1.5 miles of riverfront. Approximately 55% of the property is wooded, 35% is open grassland, and the remaining 10% is a mixture of grassland and trees. Lower portions of the property were flooded in 2011, resulting in a mix of live and dead cedar trees. 1.3 Objectives: Our primary objective is to improve native woodland and grassland habitats by controlling eastern red cedar (Juniperus virginiana) trees that have invaded the property. Our secondary objective is to clear dead cedar trees after significant flooding in 2011. 1.4 Scope: The Contractor shall provide all labor, tools, transportation, materials, and equipment necessary to shred/mulch in place all eastern red cedar trees (living and dead) from a minimum of 14 acres (BASE- Required), and up to a maximum of 28 acres (BASE and OPTIONS). Eastern red cedar tree stumps shall not exceed two (2) inches above the natural ground surface and shall have no limbs or branches remaining. Mulch shall be spread throughout the work unit (not placed in piles). Mulch shall be scattered so that the depth does not exceed two (2) inches. No mulch larger than one-half cubic foot shall remain within the units. Because eastern red cedar removal is part of an overall effort to improve native habitat, the Contractor shall use low impact equipment (e.g. equipment with rubber tracks/tires and low ground pressure to minimize ground disturbance and compaction) to accomplish all cedar control activities. All tree shredding/mulching operations shall be conducted in a safe and professional manner. 1.5 Period of Performance: The Contractor shall not begin work activities until after "Notice of Award" and completion of the pre-work conference. The Contractor will have from August 15, 2016 until December 31, 2016 to complete eastern red cedar control activities in each of the work units. The time stated for completion includes final cleanup of the premises and removal of all Contractor equipment, materials, and supplies. It shall be the Contractor's responsibility to start and provide a continuous work operation from day to day, weather permitting, until completion of the contract. If adverse weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances prevent the completion of the contracted work within the allotted time frame, the Contractor shall be required to submit in writing to the POC, a request for contract time extension which must document the cause(s) for the contracted work not being completed on time. Lack of personnel, equipment, or other work priorities will not be acceptable reasons for allowing a contract time extension. Approval of any contract extension will be at the discretion of the Contracting Officer. 1.5.1 Recognized Holidays: The Contractor is not required to perform services on holidays. New Year's Day Labor DayMartin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday Columbus DayPresident's Day Veteran's DayMemorial Day Thanksgiving DayIndependence Day Christmas Day1.5.2 Hours of Operation: The Contractor is responsible for conducting business, between sunrise and sunset, Monday thru Sunday, except Federal holidays or when the Government facility is closed due to local or national emergencies, administrative closings, or similar Government directed facility closings. 1.6 General Information1.6.1 Place of Performance: The work to be performed under this contract will occur at North Alabama Bend, located near Vermillion, South Dakota in Clay County.

Contractor vehicles shall be parked in a manner so as to avoid interference with normal work activities, adjacent landowners, the recreating public, or municipal/government operations. 1.6.2 Quality Control: The quality of all work shall be the responsibility of the Contractor. The Contractor shall develop and maintain an effective quality control program to ensure services are performed in accordance with this PWS. The Contractor shall develop and implement procedures to identify, prevent, and ensure non-recurrence of defective services. The Contractor's quality control program is the means by which he assures himself that his work complies with the requirement of the contract. 1.6.3 Quality Assurance: The Government will evaluate the Contractor's performance under this agreement in accordance with Part 7 (Technical Exhibit 7.1) of this PWS.

Basic Services: The Contractor shall provide services to control eastern red cedar trees located within the designated work units. 5.1.1 Control of Eastern Red Cedar: The Contractor shall shred/mulch in place all eastern red cedar trees (living and dead) within the awarded work units. Eastern red cedar tree stumps shall not exceed two (2) inches above the natural ground surface and shall have no limbs or branches remaining. Mulch shall be spread throughout the work unit (not placed in piles). Mulch shall be scattered so that the depth does not exceed two (2) inches. No mulch larger than one-half cubic foot shall remain within the units. Because eastern red cedar control is part of an overall effort to improve native habitat, the Contractor shall use low impact equipment (e.g. equipment with rubber tracks/tires and low ground pressure to minimize ground disturbance and compaction) to accomplish all cedar control activities. The Contractor will control eastern red cedar without damaging non-target trees and shrubs. All tree shredding/mulching operations shall be conducted in a safe and professional manner. 5.2 Description of Work Units: Work units are on relatively flat ground, with occasional slopes. All work units experienced at least some flooding during 2011. As a result, the units contain a mix of living and dead cedar trees. The base area includes units A and B. Option items include units C-H. Much of the surrounding areas were cleared of cedars through a similar mulching contract in 2014. Site inspections are encouraged prior to offering bids and can be arranged by contacting the POC at (402) 667-2569. 5.2.1 Unit A- BASE (Approximately 10 acres).
