The total shared capacity of the IDIQ awards will be $150,000,000. There is no set aside capacity for this procurement. Selection of A-E firms is not based upon competitive bidding procedures, but rather upon the professional qualifications necessary for the performance of the required services. Only firms considered most highly qualified will be awarded a contract. Multiple awards will be made from this solicitation. The contracts will be awarded for a term not to exceed a total of five (5) years. Work under this contract will be subject to satisfactory negotiation of individual firm fixed price task orders, with the total IDIQ contract value not to exceed $150,000,000 over the five-year life of the contracts. No one firm will receive more than one award as a result of this solicitation. Rates will be negotiated for each 12-month period of the contract. All interested A-E firms are cautioned to review the restrictions of FAR 9.5 (Organizational and Consultant Conflicts of Interest). All interested A-E firms are reminded that, in accordance with the provisions of PL 95-507, they will be expected to place subcontracts to the maximum practicable extent consistent with the efficient performance of the contract with small and small disadvantaged firms. Large businesses selected for this contract must comply with FAR 52.219-9 regarding the requirement for a subcontracting plan for that part of the work it intends to subcontract. Large businesses selected for this contract will be required to submit a detailed subcontracting plan during contract negotiation. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this action is 541330. Contractor Manpower Reporting: The contractor shall report ALL contractor labor hours (including subcontractor labor hours) required for performance of services provided under this contract for the Department of Defense via a secure data collection site. The contractor is required to completely fill in all required data fields using the following web address: http://www.ecmra.mil/. Reporting inputs will be for the labor executed during the period of performance during each Government fiscal year (FY), which runs October 01 through September 30. While inputs may be reported at any time during the FY, all data shall be reported no later than October 31 of each calendar year, beginning with 2014. Contractors may direct questions to the help desk at: http://www.ecmra.mil/. PROJECT INFORMATION: A-E Services for this contract will be used, but are not limited, to perform and assist the IMCOM to implement BUILDER assessments and supporting activities such as: implementation/preparation of sustainable infrastructure assessments, real property installed equipment surveys, space utilization surveys; real property inventories, building energy audit surveys, and Army Sustainment, Restoration, and Modernization (SRM) at US Army CONUS and OCONUS installations. These other services will include all types of comprehensive support for implementation and support of BUILDER at US Army Installations worldwide. The implementation and associated support will improve building inspections and facility management business processes. In accordance with DoD directive, IMCOM is required to utilize BUILDER which was developed by the USACE Engineer Research and Development Center-Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) to conduct its facility condition assessments. BUILDER is a software application for building asset lifecycle management. BUILDER stores real property building information and more detailed system inventory is modeled and/or collected which identifies building components and their key life-cycle attributes such as the age, material and capacity. Site Inspections are performed on the various components to determine engineering based objective and repeatable Condition Index (CI) measures which relate the general physical health of the asset. Functionality assessments may be performed to evaluate user requirement changes, compliance and obsolescence issues. With information about condition, functionality, and remaining service life, BUILDER guides the development of short and long-range work plans based on sound investment strategies, prioritization criteria, and budget constraints. IMCOM, through the Mobile District, had already completed a two phase pilot project to test utilization of the BUILDER tool at selected IMCOM installations. The vast majority of the work will be on active Army installations; however work may also include a variety of projects potentially on government leased property.

The offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that the offeror and/or any of its principals-(1) o Are, o are not presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency;(2) o Have, o 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 Federal, state or local government 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;(3) o Are, o are not presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a Government entity with, commission of any of these offenses enumerated in paragraph (h)(2) of this clause; and(4) o Have, o 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.(i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply:(A) 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.(B) 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.(ii) Examples. (A) 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.(B) 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.(C) 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.(D) 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).(i) Certification Regarding Knowledge of Child Labor for Listed End Products (Executive Order 13126).
