ALL INFORMATION NEEDED FOR INTERESTED PARTIES TO SUBMIT A STANDARD FORM (SF) 330, ARCHITECT ENGINEER QUALIFICATIONS IS CONTAINED HEREIN. THERE IS NO SEPARATE RFP PACKAGE TO DOWNLOAD. This procurement is for Architectural-Engineering (A-E) Services and will be procured in accordance with the Selection of Architects and Engineers Statute as implemented by Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Subpart 36.6. This procurement is being solicited on an UNRESTRICTED basis; therefore, replies to this notice are requested from all business concerns. The Selection of Architects and Engineers Statute requires agencies to conduct discussions with at least three qualified firms during the selection of firms for Architect-Engineering contracts. The Sources Sought Notice for this requirement, dated 27 February 2014, did not reveal at least three small businesses that possess the required capabilities and capacity to accomplish the work expected under this contract. FAR 36.101(b) states, “When a requirement in this part is inconsistent with a requirement in another part of this regulation, this Part 36 shall take precedence if the acquisition of construction or architect-engineer services is involved;” therefore, the “rule of two” normally used to determine whether a requirement can be set-aside for small business as described in FAR 19 does not apply to this procurement; therefore, Part 36 takes precedence over Part 19, including FAR 19.502-2. The NAVFAC Atlantic small business office and Small Business Administration (SBA) Procurement Center Representative (PCR) concur with this decision. This procurement is a Cost-Plus-Award-Fee (CPAF) Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) Architect-Engineer (A-E) Contract for Environmental Engineering Support Services for Comprehensive Long-Term Environmental Action Navy (CLEAN) in Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Atlantic’s Area of Responsibility (AOR), primarily in the NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic Hampton Roads and Marine Corps Integrated Product Teams (IPTs) AOR, NAVFAC Washington AOR, NAVFAC Northwest AOR, NAVFAC Southwest AOR, NAVFAC Europe Africa Southwest Asia (EURAFSWA) AOR, and Puerto Rico. The general scope of this requirement covers A-E services to provide program management and technical environmental services in support of the Department of the Navy’s (DON) Environmental Restoration Program (ERP), including the Installation Restoration Program (IRP), the Munitions Response Program (MRP), and other similar programs at any DON or Marine Corps site within NAVFAC Atlantic’s AOR.

Those in support of addressing large and/or complex Petroleum, Oils, and Lubricants (POL) sites with multiple sources and distribution lines, including assessment characterization, testing monitoring, and remedial action design and oversight. d. Those in support of assessments, studies, investigations, and remedial designs that include other environmental programs such as air, water, waste water, solid waste, asbestos and hazardous substance/waste management, Range Sustainability Environmental Program Assessment (RSEPA), and complex compliance requirements requiring the integration of knowledge from several media and statutes in the United States and abroad. e. Those in support of expedited response actions. f. Those in support of the Navy Installation Restoration Information System (NIRIS) development and maintenance, Web page development and maintenance, GIS, and graphic support. The contract requires that the selected firms have on-line access to e-mail via the Internet for routine exchange of correspondence. Attention is directed to FAR subpart 9.5 and the following provisions. An organizational conflict of interest may exist, if a firm has performed as an Environmental Response Action prime contractor and performs as a CLEAN prime or subcontractor at the same site. An organizational conflict of interest may also exist on a project basis for firms who have performed as prime contractors on other Navy environmental engineering contracts. Firms are advised that NFAS 5252.209-9300 Alt I Organizational Conflicts of Interest will be included in the contract. The restrictions described herein shall apply to the contractor and its affiliates, joint venture partners, consultants and subcontracts under this contract. SELECTION CRITERIA Form 330 (SF-330)—The A-E must demonstrate its and each key consultant’s qualifications with respect to the published evaluation criteria for all services with particular emphasis on work in the geographical locations as described above. Criteria 1 through 3 are considered most important and are equal among themselves; criteria 4 through 7 are slightly less important and are equal among themselves; criterion 8 is of lesser importance and criterion 9 is the least important and will be used as a tiebreaker among technically equal firms. Criterion 1—Specialized Experience (SF 330, Sections F and H): Demonstrate specialized experience of the firm and/or proposed consultants that was substantially completed between September 2009 and August 2014. Demonstrate specialized experience in performing multiple, simultaneous projects involving field investigations and preparing studies/analysis/work plans/remediation oversight for environmental restoration projects and other technical support services.

Evaluation criteria (1) through (3) are considered the most important and are equal among themselves; criteria (4) and (5) are of slightly less importance and are equal among themselves; criteria (6) and (7) are of slightly less importance still and are equal among themselves; and criteria (8) is of the least importance and will be used as a tie-breaker among technically equal firms. Specific evaluation criteria include: 1. Specialized Experience 2. Professional Qualifications and Technical Competence 3. Program Management and Capacity 4. Past Performance 5. Quality Control Program 6. Commitment to Small Business 7. Firm Location 8. Volume of Work Criterion 1 —Specialized Experience (SF330, Part I, Section F): Firms will be evaluated on specialized experience and technical competence in performance of services similar to those anticipated under this contract through evaluation of experience in: 1. Global or Multi-Regional Planning (such as GSIPs, Integrated Products Support Plans, and Functional Plans), o Global or Multi-Regional planning is defined as infrastructure planning that is strategic in nature, crosses regions and performs analysis that provides actionable recommendations, develops courses of action, or prioritizes identified infrastructure capability gaps, that influence decision making across multiple regions. Repetitious planning actions, such as Basic Facility Requirements or Asset evaluations, performed in two or more regions under a single task order in which each planning action is separate, and only affects the individual installation or region where the planning action is proposed, will not qualify as global and multi-regional planning. 2. Regional Planning (such as Regional Integration Plans, ( RIPs)) o Regional Planning is defined as infrastructure planning that is strategic in nature, crosses installations within a single region and performs analysis that leads to actionable recommendations, develops courses of action, or prioritizes identified infrastructure capability gaps that influence decision making across multiple installations across a single region. Repetitious planning actions, such as Basic Facility Requirements or Asset evaluations, performed at two or more installations under a single task order in which each planning action is separate, and only affects the individual installation where the planning action is proposed, will not qualify as regional planning. 3.

Firms failing to provide at least one project from each joint venture partner will be considered to have not met the requirements of the criterion. Projects shall be submitted on the SF-330 at Part I, Section F and shall be completed projects. Projects not completed will be excluded from evaluation consideration. For submittal purposes, a single task order on an IDIQ contract is considered a project, as is a stand-alone contract award. Do not submit an IDIQ contract as an example project. Instead, list relevant task orders or stand-alone contract awards that fit within the definition above. The Government will not evaluate information provided for an IDIQ contract. Examples of project work submitted that do not conform to this requirement will not be evaluated. Failure to provide requested data, accessible points of contact, or valid phone numbers may result in a firm being excluded from evaluation or considered less qualified.

Visiting vendors may obtain daily passes directly from the individual Navy installations by submitting identification credentials for verification and undergoing a criminal screening/ background check. Alternatively, if the vendor so chooses, it may voluntarily elect to obtain long-term credentials through enrollment, registration, background vetting, screening, issuance of credentials, and electronic validation of credentials at its own cost through a designated independent contractor NCACS service provider. Credentials will be issued every five years and access privileges will be reviewed/renewed on an annual basis. The costs incurred to obtain Navy installation access of any kind are not reimbursable, and the price(s) paid for obtaining long-term NCACS credentials will not be approved as a direct cost of this contract. Application for, and use of, badges will be as directed. Obtain access to the installation by participating in the Navy Commercial Access Control System (NCACS), or by obtaining passes each day from the Base Pass and Identification Office. Costs for obtaining passes through the NCACS are the responsibility of the Contractor. One-day passes, issued through the Base Pass and Identification Office, will be furnished without charge. Furnish a completed EMPLOYMENT ELIGIBILITY VERIFICATION (DHS FORM I-9) form for all personnel requesting badges. This form is available at http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis by searching or selecting Employment Verification (Form I-9). Allow 7 to 10 days for processing applications for badges. Immediately report instances of lost or stolen badges to the Contracting Officer. a. NCACS Program: NCACS is a voluntary program in which Contractor personnel who enroll, and are approved, are subsequently granted access to the installation for a period up to one year, or the length of the contract, whichever is less, and are not required to obtain a new pass from the Base Pass and Identification Office for each visit. The Government performs background screening and credentialing. Throughout the year the Contractor employee must continue to meet background screening standards. Periodic background screenings are conducted to verify continued NCACS participation and installation access privileges. Under the NCACS program, no commercial vehicle inspection is required, other than for Random Anti-Terrorism Measures (RAM) or in the case of an elevation of Force Protection Conditions (FPCON). Information on costs and requirements to participate and enroll in NCACS is available at http://www.rapidgate.com/vendors/how-to-enroll or by calling 1-877-727-4342. Contractors should be aware that the costs incurred to obtain NCACS credentials, or costs related to any means of access to a Navy Installation, are not reimbursable. Any time invested, or price(s) paid, for obtaining NCACS credentials will not be compensated in any way or approved as a direct cost of any contract with the Department of the Navy. b. One-Day Passes: Participation in the NCACS is not mandatory, and if the Contractor chooses to not participate, the Contractors personnel will have to obtain daily passes, be subject to daily mandatory vehicle inspection, and will have limited access to the installation.
