Relevance may include, but is not limited to, similarity of work contemplated under the RFP with respect to complexity, length of performance, number of tasks, scope, type of work, and value. The RFP will instruct offerors to complete a prescribed matrix, which details experience in key areas from the SOW, by citing not more than three references. At least one reference will be from the prime offeror, and no more than one per subcontractor or consultant. Additionally, offerors will be instructed to complete a Reference Information Sheet for each reference cited. Section 15 of the Reference Information Sheet requires offerors to provide a summary description of contract work, not to exceed three (3) additional single sided pages per reference.

(End of clause) 1352.209-73, COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAWS (APRIL 2010) The contractor shall comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations which deal with or relate to performance in accord with the terms of the contract. (End of clause) 1352.209-74, ORGANIZATIONAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST (APRIL 2010) (a) Purpose. The purpose of this clause is to ensure that the contractor and its subcontractors: (1) Are not biased because of their financial, contractual, organizational, or other interests which relate to the work under this contract, and (2) Do not obtain any unfair competitive advantage over other parties by virtue of their performance of this contract. (b) Scope. The restrictions described herein shall apply to performance or participation by the contractor, its parents, affiliates, divisions and subsidiaries, and successors in interest (hereinafter collectively referred to as "contractor") in the activities covered by this clause as a prime contractor, subcontractor, co-sponsor, joint venturer, consultant, or in any similar capacity. For the purpose of this clause, affiliation occurs when a business concern is controlled by or has the power to control another or when a third party has the power to control both. (c) Warrant and Disclosure. The warrant and disclosure requirements of this paragraph apply with full force to both the contractor and all subcontractors. The contractor warrants that, to the best of the contractor's knowledge and belief, there are no relevant facts or circumstances which would give rise to an organizational conflict of interest, as defined in FAR Subpart 9.5, and that the contractor has disclosed all relevant information regarding any actual or potential conflict. The contractor agrees it shall make an immediate and full disclosure, in writing, to the Contracting Officer of any potential or actual organizational conflict of interest or the existence of any facts that may cause a reasonably prudent person to question the contractor's impartiality because of the appearance or existence of bias or an unfair competitive advantage. Such disclosure shall include a description of the actions the contractor has taken or proposes to take in order to avoid, neutralize, or mitigate any resulting conflict of interest. (d) Remedies. The Contracting Officer may terminate this contract for convenience, in whole or in part, if the Contracting Officer deems such termination necessary to avoid, neutralize or mitigate an actual or apparent organizational conflict of interest. If the contractor fails to disclose facts pertaining to the existence of a potential or actual organizational conflict of interest or misrepresents relevant information to the Contracting Officer, the Government may terminate the contract for default, suspend or debar the contractor from Government contracting, or pursue such other remedies as may be permitted by law or this contract. (e) Subcontracts. The contractor shall include a clause substantially similar to this clause, including paragraphs (f) and (g), in any subcontract or consultant agreement at any tier expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold. The terms "contract," "contractor," and "Contracting Officer" shall be appropriately modified to preserve the Government's rights. (f) Prime Contractor Responsibilities. The contractor shall obtain from its subcontractors or consultants the disclosure required in FAR Part 9.507-1, and shall determine in writing whether the interests disclosed present an actual, or significant potential for, an organizational conflict of interest. The contractor shall identify and avoid, neutralize, or mitigate any subcontractor organizational conflict prior to award of the contract to the satisfaction of the Contracting Officer. If the subcontractor's organizational conflict cannot be avoided, neutralized, or mitigated, the contractor must obtain the written approval of the Contracting Officer prior to entering into the subcontract. If the contractor becomes aware of a subcontractor's potential or actual organizational conflict of interest after contract award, the contractor agrees that the Contractor may be required to eliminate the subcontractor from its team, at the contractor's own risk. (g) Waiver.

ALL INFORMATION NEEDED FOR INTERESTED PARTIES TO SUBMIT A STANDARD FORM (SF) 330, ARCHITECT-ENGINEER QUALIFICATIONS, IS CONTAINED HEREIN. THERE IS NO SEPARATE REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL (RFP) PACKAGE TO DOWNLOAD. THIS IS A TOTAL SMALL 8(A) SET-ASIDE PROCUREMENT. A market research study was conducted by NAVFAC Southwest that included an assessment of relevant qualifications and capabilities of potentially qualified firms. Upon review of the market research, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in San Diego determined that an 8(a) Business Development Program Set-Aside procurement is appropriate. The NAVFAC SW small business office concurs with the SBA determination. Architect-Engineer (A-E) services are required for a firm fixed-price Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract for Architectural Design and Engineering Services for Renovation/Repair or New Construction of Small Scale Buildings and Facilities. Projects under this contract will occur at various military installations located in the NAVFAC Southwest Area of Responsibility (AOR): California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The preponderance of work will be at Navy and Marine Corps installations in southern California. The Offeror/Contractor must demonstrate adequate in-house staffing capable of self-performing (see definition) at least 50 percent of the cost of the contract as required by FAR Clause 52.219.14 (c)(1) Limitations on Subcontracting. The prime A-E firm shall be an Architectural firm with the primary NAICS code of 541310 (Architectural Services). Required are A-E services for various projects primarily involving renovation and repair (see definitions) of a variety of building types. A-E services for new construction of buildings may also be required. Types of buildings/facilities may include, but are not limited to, commercial, institutional, industrial, operational and training, research and development, medical, and quality of life facilities. A-E services for this contract shall be in accordance with the scope of the contract, applicable references, and Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC). The number of design task orders per fiscal year may vary and may involve surges of multiple projects with overlapping delivery dates. Primary A-E services required: Preparation of the following: Request for Proposals (RFP) packages for Design-Build (DB) projects; Design-Bid-Build (DBB) construction contract packages (i.e., full plans and specifications); and architectural programming and/or space planning. The preponderance of services will involve renovation/repair of existing facilities rather than new construction. Secondary A-E services required: Site investigations to support new development of facilities on raw land and/or renovation of existing facilities on developed sites; cost estimates; and construction support services, also referred to as post-construction award services (PCAS). Support A-E services which may be required: Technical reviews of government-prepared documents for DB projects and/or full plans and specifications; preparation of planning and programming support documents (such as DD1391 documents); identification and abatement methods for existing asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paint, and other hazardous materials. The maximum contract value may not exceed $10,000,000 aggregate total. The minimum guarantee for the contract is $5,000. The minimum guarantee for the entire contract term (including option years) will be satisfied by the award of the initial task order. The minimum value of individual task orders executed under this contract is $5,000. The maximum value of individual task orders executed under this contract is $300,000. There will be no dollar limit per year. Multiple task orders may be awarded with similar completion schedules and overlapping delivery dates. Contract term is for a one-year base period with four option periods. Each performance period will run 365 calendar days. The hourly rates will be negotiated for each performance period. The Government may exercise the option period unilaterally. Per NFAS 17.208-100(c)(1), options for PCAS may be negotiated on individual task orders for unilateral exercise. The estimated start date is November 2015. The NAICS Code for this procurement is 541310 (Architectural Services) and the annual small business size standard is $7.5 Million. The Government makes no representation as to the number of task orders or the actual amount of work to be ordered. The contractor is not guaranteed work in excess of the minimum guarantee. Firms that design or prepare specifications for a construction contract or task order issued under the resulting contract are prohibited from providing the subsequent construction. This limitation also applies to subsidiaries/affiliates of the firm. SELECTION CRITERIA AND SUBMITTAL REQUIREMENTS: Selection of Architects and Engineers, formally the Brooks Act, (PL 92-582) and Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Part 36.6 selection procedures apply. The evaluation and selection will be based on the following criteria: Criterion 1, Professional Qualifications; Criterion 2, Specialized Experience and Technical Competence; Criterion 3, Capacity; Criterion 4, Past Performance; Criterion 5, Location and Knowledge of the Locality; Criterion 6, Quality Control; and Criterion 7, Volume of Work. Submitted SF330s (Architect-Engineer Qualifications) and related information will be evaluated to determine the most highly qualified firm based on criteria responses. Criteria 1 and 2 are considered most important and of equal importance to each other; Criteria 3, 4, 5, and 6 are of lesser importance and listed in descending order of importance; and Criterion 7 is of lesser importance and will be used as a tiebreaker among firms considered to be technically equal. Evaluation of past performance and experience may include information provided by the firm, customer inquiries, Government databases, and publicly available sources. Failure to provide requested data, accessible points of contact, or valid phone numbers may result in a firm being considered less favorably in the evaluation. In evaluating an Offeror’s capability, the Government will consider how well the offeror complied with these instructions. All projects provided in the SF 330 shall have been completed by the office/branch/individual team member actually performing the work under this contract. Projects not performed by the office/branch/individual team member will be excluded from evaluation consideration.

If an ACASS/CPARS evaluation is not available, ensure correct phone numbers and email addresses are provided for the client point of contact. Completed PPQs should be submitted with your SF330. If the A-E is unable to obtain a completed PPQ from a client for a project before the response date set forth in this notice, the A-E should complete and submit with their response the first page of the PPQ (Attachment #1), including contract and client information for the respective projects. A-Es should follow-up with clients/references to ensure timely submittal of questionnaires. If the client requests, questionnaires may be submitted directly to the Governments point of contact, Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest, Code RAQ20.EP, Attn: Elliott Penetrante, via email at elliott.penetrante@navy.mil, prior to the response date. A-Es shall not incorporate by reference into their response ACASS/CPARS or PPQ evaluations previously submitted in response to other A-E services procurements. However, this does not preclude the Government from utilizing previously submitted PPQ information in the past performance evaluation. Submitted ACASS/CPARS and PPQ evaluations will not be counted as part of the 30 page limitation and shall be attached to the SF330, behind the SF330 Part II document. CRITERION 5, LOCATION AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE LOCALITY: The evaluation will consider the team’s location, demonstrated knowledge of, and project experience within, the geographic areas where projects are anticipated for this contract. The preponderance of the work will be at Navy and Marine Corps installations in southern California.
