Certification Regarding Responsibility Matters (Apr 2010) (a) (1) The Offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that -- (i) The Offeror and/or any of its Principals -- (A) Are [_] are not [_] presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency; (B) Have [_] have not [_], within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a public (Federal, State, or local) contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or State antitrust statutes relating to the submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws, or receiving stolen property (if offeror checks ?have?, the offeror shall also see 52.209-7, if included in this solicitation); and (C) Are [_] are not [_] presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a governmental entity with, commission of any of the offenses enumerated in paragraph (a)(1)(i)(B) of this provision; and (D) Have [_], have not [_], within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,000 for which the liability remains unsatisfied. (1) Federal taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply: (i) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted. (ii) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection action is precluded. (2) Examples. (i) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. ?6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (ii) The IRS has filed a notice of Federal tax lien with respect to an assessed tax liability, and the taxpayer has been issued a notice under I.R.C. ?6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (iii) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. ?6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (iv) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. 362 (the Bankruptcy Code). (ii) The Offeror has [[_] has not [_], within a three-year period preceding this offer, had one or more contracts terminated for default by any Federal agency. (2) ?Principal,? for the purposes of this certification, means an officer; director; owner; partner; or a person having primary management or supervisory responsibilities within a business entity (e.g., general manager; plant manager; head of a division or business segment; and similar positions). This Certification Concerns a Matter Within the Jurisdiction of an Agency of the United States and the Making of a False, Fictitious, or Fraudulent Certification May Render the Maker Subject to Prosecution Under Section 1001, Title 18, United States Code. (b) The Offeror shall provide immediate written notice to the Contracting Officer if, at any time prior to contract award, the Offeror learns that its certification was erroneous when submitted or has become erroneous by reason of changed circumstances. (c) A certification that any of the items in paragraph (a) of this provision exists will not necessarily result in withholding of an award under this solicitation. However, the certification will be considered in connection with a determination of the Offeror?s responsibility. Failure of the Offeror to furnish a certification or provide such additional information as requested by the Contracting Officer may render the Offeror non-responsible. (d) Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of a system of records in order to render, in good faith, the certification required by paragraph (a) of this provision. The knowledge and information of an Offeror is not required to exceed that which is normally possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings. (e) The certification in paragraph (a) of this provision is a material representation of fact upon which reliance was placed when making award. If it is later determined that the Offeror knowingly rendered an erroneous certification, in addition to other remedies available to the Government, the Contracting Officer may terminate the contract resulting from this solicitation for default.

SELECTION CRITERIA: Selection criteria for this acquisition are listed below in descending order of importance (first by major criterion and then by each sub-criterion), Criteria: Architects-Engineers primary criteria: items (f)-(h) are the secondary criteria and will only be used as "tie-breakers" among firms that are essentially technically equal. (a) Specialized Experience and Technical Competence: Ensure that all special experience requirements are reflected on appropriate personnel resumes in Section E, Part I of the SF 330. The firm must demonstrate expertise in the following and must highlight the areas that meet these requirements so the reviewers can find that the requirements have been met: (i) Recent experience, within the past five (5) years from the closing date of the synopsis, and significant/specialized experience in the design of new and existing military or military type facilities (for example a civilian motel is similar to a military barracks) and utility infrastructure and design of repairs, renovations and alterations of existing facilities and infrastructure at Military Installations paying particular attention to area architecture and conditions, utility systems, landscaping, interior design, value engineering and environmental issues. There must be a minimum of three (3) examples, of such recent experience showing specialized experience and technical competence in the design of Military type facilities with over $300,000 in design fees by your firm. The dollar value limitation will apply to cumulative past design experience within the past 5 years-not individual examples greater than $300,000. Specify the dollar amount of design/A-E Services actually performed by the firm on all the projects submitted. For example, if the firm performed $100k of mechanical design on a $2M project, submit the amount of design/A-E Services as $100k, not $2M. Failure to do so will cause rejection of the submittal. If the project is an IDIQ-show projects designed under the individual task orders. Do not just show an IDIQ as a project. The Government must see what the project actually consisted of. Military construction experience will be given more weight than military type construction projects. (ii) Firms must demonstrate the capability to design projects to LEED certification criteria and to perform ASHRAE Level I, II & III Energy Audits. (iii) Firms must demonstrate at least five (5) years' experience, from the closing date of the synopsis, in Fire Protection and Life Safety Design in the use and application of NFPA codes 70 and 101. Experience with UFC 3-600-01, Design: Fire Protection Engineering for Facilities, which replaced MIL-HDBK 1008C, is also acceptable. It is insufficient to assert that the firm can meet these requirements. Show specific projects and list what codes they have been designed under. This applies to all of section 3 a requirements-show projects that meet the requirements and highlight how the requirements are met. (iv) Firms must demonstrate experience in design and survey (including use of X-ray fluorescence devices) required for abatement of asbestos and lead-based paint. (v) Firms must demonstrate past performance in preparing studies, design-build solicitations and design-bid-build solicitations, at Army and Air Force installations is preferred. (vi) Firms must demonstrate the ability to prepare construction cost estimates, using the MII program, latest version, is preferred. (b) Professional Qualifications: This Indefinite Delivery Contract (IDC) will require the A-E Contractor to demonstrate that all expertise requirements are reflected on key personnel resumes in section E, Part I of the SF330. When a minimum number of years/experience is listed, it is from the closing date of the synopsis. Evaluation of each discipline will consider education, registration, relevant project experience within the last ten (10) years, and longevity with the firm. The asbestos/lead-based paint survey personnel shall demonstrate (listed experience on their resume) experience with x-ray fluorescent devices. Repeat Resume Page as needed to provide all required resumes. The following is a list of the key personnel, minimum requirements and the minimum number required under this acquisition. These minimum requirements can be met utilizing in-house or consultants/subcontractors. Do not list a subcontractor as your firm's employee. This will be cause for rejection of the SF330. (i) Two (2) Project Managers, minimum of five (5) years' experience, on vertical construction type projects, PMP certification highly desired. Saying an individual has for example ten years' experience without showing at least one project that was completed five years ago or longer will be cause for rejection of the submittal.

One (1) licensed professional Land Surveyor and one (1) survey crew Each discipline shall have a minimum of five (5) years' experience in their field of expertise for all positions listed in this paragraph except for the survey crew. If the experience listed in the resume doesn't go back at least the five years that are required, the submittal will be rejected. Engineers and architects shall have a degree from an accredited university engineering or architectural program (ABET, NAAB). The cost estimator does not have to be a PE or registered architect. Cost estimator must be certified by AACE, Tri-Services, or any of the nationally recognized cost estimating certification organizations. Saying an individual has for example ten years' experience without showing at least one project that was completed five years ago or longer will be cause for rejection of the submittal. (ii) One (1) qualified Fire Protection Engineer (A qualified fire protection engineer is defined as an individual meeting one of the following conditions: An engineer having a Bachelor of Science or Master of Science Degree in Fire Protection Engineering from an accredited university engineering program plus a minimum of five (5) years of work experience in fire protection engineering); or a registered professional engineer (P.E.) who has passed the fire protection written examination administered by the National Council of Examiners for Engineers and Surveys (NCEES); or a registered P.E. in a related engineering discipline with a minimum of five (5) years' experience dedicated to fire protection engineering that can be verified with documentation; None of the required personnel can be dual disciplined, i.e. a separate employee must be provided for each stated requirement above to meet the number required. Ensure that resumes are provided for each of the required architects, engineers and other personnel specifically required. Resume for the licensed professional Land Surveyor is required. Resumes for the survey crew are not required. (c) Past Performance: Past performance on DoD contracts with respect to compliance with contract and task order terms, quality of work, adherence to schedules, cost control, communication, and issue resolution as determined by ACASS and Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS).
