This will be a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business Set-aside. This is an Architectural/Engineering Design and Construction Period Services Project. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL; NO SOLICITATION PACKAGE WILL BE ISSUED UNTIL AFTER AN EVALUATION HAS BEEN MADE ON THE PROVIDED SF-330. The NAICS code for this project is 541330 - Engineering Services. I) SCOPE OF WORK 1) The A/E is to provide design and construction documents for the demolition of existing system and installation of a new fire alarm system for the Sheridan Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) located at 1898 Fort Road, Sheridan, WY 82801. 2) This project includes fire alarm system components in 23 buildings. The designer needs to provide plans and specs for a fire alarm system which meets current fire codes but also be compatible with future products. Below is a list of what the VA is calling the components. a) A new operating system, annunciation panels, fire alarm control panels, paging bridge, control computer program, and wiring (fiber) between these and to the control computer will all need to be updated and compatible with existing devices (smoke detectors, manual pull stations, heat detectors, duct detectors, fire suppression flow switches and tampers, pressure switch, etc.) and future devices. b) All wiring to the devices will need to be checked by the A/E or a third party hired by them for defects. If the wiring to the devices is found to be defective then that wire will be replaced in the design. 3) Since devices will not be able to be replaced under this project the designer must provide a design which is compatible with the existing devices and will also be compatible with future replacement of the devices. 4) Ensure in their design is compatible with the new one operating system and computer but also with future expansion or part replacement. 5) All electrical, carpentry, architectural, mechanical work needed to design these systems will be provided by the A/E. 6) The design must, as a minimum, be in accordance with all applicable codes indicated in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Design Manuals and VA PUBLICATIONS (Master Construction Specifications, Construction Standards, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Underwriters Laboratory, International Building Code IBC 2003, NFPA and National Electric Code (NEC) building codes and standards and VA Information Security Handbook 6500.6 etc.). 7) As part of the design the following list needs to be considered: a) All electrical work will be terminated by the construction contractor. The design must be clear who and what is supplied for the termination equipment. b) Any penetrations through any fire barriers whether a floor or wall it will be done in this contract to meet VA standards and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). c) The installed system and its components shall be tested and commissioned. This will be included in the design and construction documents. d) Construction project is to be completed within 270-calendar days from date of notice to proceed. e) The amount of design must be able to be adjusted to fit the budget of the project. Additive bid alternates with a cumulative total of 20% of estimated construction must be part of the design so that the project can be procured within the VA construction budget. These alternates must be clear in the plans and specs. The design to construction budget is between $2,000,000 and $5,000,000. f) Implement new technologies in fire alarm systems to improve facility safety. The brand of the system only matters to the point where we can get services from a brand certified contractor in the future in several hours and not days. g) During construction it may be necessary to affect finishes in the buildings. All finishes solutions will be designed and called out in a finish schedule and specs. h) All testing parameters will be provided. i) Design documents will show the red lines as being submitted by the contractor to the A/E and put into the AutoCAD drawings and submitted within 30 days of the completion of the construction project. j) All existing utilities which are designed to be relocated or modified shall have direction to the contractor on the new location and modifications. k) Third party fire review is required to be provided by the A/E. l) This is a functioning hospital and the design must show phasing and methods to keep the existing system in place while installing and testing the new system, so the facility is never without fire alarms and fire protection. There will be times for instance when the actual turn over happens that the fire alarms will be down but the designer must minimize this time in their design. m) The installed system design and its components shall be tested and certified capable of receiving, distributing, interconnecting and supporting system requirements required locally and remotely as detailed herein. n) All existing wiring that is to be replaced by fiber or by new copper will be demolition from the site during construction. 8) Investigative services: a) A report on 8 1/2"x11" paper (bound) and an electric Portable Document Format (PDF) version will be submitted. It will give the pro and cons of the project. It shall include preliminary cost estimate and any results from preliminary testing and investigations. The results and sketches from this report should be used to develop the design. b) Interview and work with VAMC staff to determine how the current system is working and what needs there are from the VA FMS staff. c) In person inspections will be needed before the design starts due to limited space and the area needing phasing designed. The A/E will want to understand the workings of the area to facilitate a smoother design. d) The A/E will need to do a visual investigation of the above ceiling, attic and areas to get a clearer understanding of the building. The VA drawings are older and may or may not show all utilities and structural components. e) The wiring to devices will be inspected by the A/E or their sub-contractor for defects like put not limited to cuts or coating degradation. This wiring information shall be documented and turned in with the As-builts. f) Any drawings which can be provided and show line locations will need to be verified by the contractor before using in the design. g) A/E must provide their own equipment to perform these investigative services (i.e. ladder, electronic tracker, etc.) h) Schedule 4 trips for this at minimum. 9) Meeting and Submittal reviews: a) The A/E will combine the kickoff meeting with the first investigative trip. b) The A/E will be on site for the 30%, 50% and 95% reviews. A/E shall provide a site visit with the 100% documents to verify fit of new equipment. c) The A/E will take minutes for all phone calls, meetings and decisions then distribute for review by the members within 5 business days and then finalize the minutes within 5 more business days. Electronic and emailed minutes are acceptable. 10) To be provided by the VA to the designer: a) One line prints of as-build utilities plans and building floor plans are available at the VA Engineering Office in AutoCAD or PDF format. The accuracy of these prints is a close approximation of what exists on site. There may be instances where the prints are wrong, therefore the contractor shall be responsible for field verification of all project requirements and measurements. Any drawings which can be provided and show line locations will need to be verified by the contractor before using in the design. b) VA Standards and VA Master Specifications in electronic format Microsoft Word © (MS WORD) are available on the VA web site. http://www.cfm.va.gov/til/ . Add document footer to these specifications showing the project, the section number, and the page number.

The Bighorn National Forest is seeking interested contractors for an Integrated Resource Stewardship Contract in accordance with Section 323 of Public Law 108-7 as revised.  This project is being advertised as a full and open competition.This acquisition has been tailored to fit the Government's method of trading goods for services. It will entail both a timbersale for the sale of approximately 2,352 CCF of Lodgepole Pine & other conifer saw timber (trees) with 410 CCF of Lodgepole Pine & other conifer non-saw timber for exchange of service work for 272 acres of fuels treatment with 1.6 miles of road re-construction. The project area is located on the Medicine Wheel Ranger District of the Bighorn National Forest. The overall goal is to reduce hazardous fuels while attaining a healthy, vigorous forested stand through the commercial use of timber, felling, skidding, yarding, decking, piling, masticating, or removing designated trees from Forest Service land, and related activities. The order of preference by species for leave trees is 1) lodgepole pine, 2) Engelmann spruce, 3) limber pine, 4) Douglas-fir, and 5) subalpine fir. Leave an average stocking density of 194 trees per acre. Use of stewardship authority would assist in the removal, lop and scatter, or piling of non-merchantable sized materials within the designated areas and with the non/pre- commercial thinning of designated units to improve growth and vigor within these respective stands. Additional site preparation for reforestation through scarification efforts is also proposed for this project. All of these actions will reduce the risks of insect and pathogen infestations, reduce hazardous fuels arrangements and continuity, and provide a sustainable supply of commercial timber for the current entry and for the future. Bonding is not required for this project. The Construction portion of this contract is estimated at below $10,000.00. The use of bio-based products is anticipated in the performance of the contract.
