The use of the MATOC will provide the Government with a construction product delivery method that can accommodate quick and straight-forward projects, as well as some small but complex projects, and can help minimize design effort and related overhead expenditures, as well as handle compressed schedules. The Government will evaluate and select, for contract award, two (2) or more qualified Offerors, whose Proposals are determined to be the most beneficial to the Government, with consideration given to both the technical evaluation factors and price. Task Orders will primarily address new construction, design-build or design-bid-build, general building renovation, road and airfield pavement repair, utility work to include water, sewer, electrical, and gas, and general environmental work including, but not limited to, incidental minor construction, excavation, plumbing, demolition, electrical, structural, mechanical, concrete work, and environmental remedial work. Project work may also include Force Protection type projects. This solicitation will cover the geographical area of Italy, which includes all U. S. Government Facilities throughout Italy.

Those contractors who are considered most qualified during Phase I (not to exceed five (5) contractors) will be requested to submit the proposal requirements for Phase II. Specific evaluation criteria will be provided in the solicitation documents. The estimated cost of the MATOC is not-to-exceed US$49,999,995.00 for the life of the contract, which will consist of one (1) base year period and four (4) one(1)-year option periods. The Contract will end upon completion of the five (5) one (1) year periods (if all options are exercised) or upon attainment of the US$49,999,995.00 capacity. Individual projects issued under the MATOC will contain their own estimated values. There will be no limits on the number of task orders awarded/issued in any year.

CANCELLATION BY MUTUAL AGREEMENT Should the situation warrant, the parties upon mutual agreement and no costs, may cancel this contract without further recourse to the other and mutual release of any further obligations. 13. TERMINATION FOR CAUSE a.

If the NAFI terminates this contract in whole or in part, it may acquire, under the terms and in the manner the Contracting Officer considers appropriate, supplies or services similar to those terminated, and the Contractor will remain liable to the NAFI for any excess costs for those supplies or services. However the Contractor must continue the work not terminated. d. Defaults by subcontractors at any tier for any reason do not constitute causes beyond the control and without the fault or negligence of the Contractor.

The NAFI shall pay the contract price for completed supplies delivered and accepted. The Contractor and Contracting Officer shall agree on the amount of payment for manufacturing materials delivered and accepted and for the protection and preservation of the property. Failure to agree will be a dispute under the Disputes Clause. The NAFI may withhold from these amounts any sum the Contracting Officer determines to be necessary to protect the NAFI against loss because of outstanding liens or claims of former lien holders. g. If, after termination, it is determined that the cause by the Contractor was excusable, the rights and obligations of the parties shall be the same as if the termination had been issued for convenience of the NAFI. h. The rights and remedies of the NAFI in this clause are in addition to any other rights and remedies provided by law or under this contract. i. This contract is automatically terminated for the convenience of the government in the event the NAFI is dissolved. 14. CHANGES a. The Contracting Officer may at any time, by written order, and without notice to the sureties, if any, make changes within the general scope of this Contract in any one or more of the following: (1) If the requirement is for supplies and/or services: drawings, designs, or specifications; method of shipment or packing; description of services to be performed; time of performance (i.e., hours of the day, days of the week, etc.); place of delivery or place of performance of services. (2) If the requirement is for concession services (including public private ventures): specifications (including drawings and designs); method or manner of performance of work; NAFI-furnished facilities, equipment, materials, services, or site; and/or directing acceleration in the performance of work. (3) If the requirement is for transportation services: specifications; work or services; place of origin; place of delivery; tonnage to be shipped; and/or amount of NAFI-furnished property. b. If any such change causes an increase or decrease in the cost of, or the time required for, performance of any part of the work under this Contract, whether or not changed by the order, the Contracting Officer will make an equitable adjustment in the Contract price, the delivery schedule, or both, and modify the Contract. c. The Contractor must assert its right to an adjustment under this clause within 30 days from the date of receipt of the written order; however, if the Contracting Officer decides that the facts justify it, the Contracting Officer may receive and act upon a proposal submitted before final payment of the Contract. d. If the Contractor's proposal includes the cost of property made obsolete or excess by the change, the Contracting Officer shall have the right to prescribe the manner of the disposition of the property. e. If the requirement is for architect-engineer or other professional services, no services for which an additional cost or fee will be charged by the Contractor shall be furnished without the prior written authorization of the Contracting Officer. f. If the requirement is for concession services (including public private ventures), the Contractor shall notify the Contracting Officer in writing within seven (7) days of the occurrence of any event that the Contractor considers a change to the Contract that has not been authorized in writing signed by the Contracting Officer. The Contractor will be deemed to have waived any right to an adjustment if timely notice is not provided to the Contracting Officer as required herein. For purposes of this clause, "event" shall include, but not be limited to, an order or direction by a NAFI or other Government official, a contested contract interpretation, interference with or interruption of the contract work, or any other event that increases the cost or time to perform the contract as compared to the cost or time that would be required if the Contractor performed the Contract in accordance with its terms. g.

Draft RFP - EOD Small Robots

Department of the Air Force, AFICA | Published December 12, 2014
cpvs

THIS NOTICE IS ISSUED AS A DRAFT RFP ANNOUCEMENT FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY. This notice DOES NOT constitute a Request for Proposal or complete package outlining the technical competencies/qualifications of the prospective contractor, nor does it represent any commitment by the Government. Since this is a Draft RFP announcement, no evaluation letters and/or results will be issued. No reimbursement will be made for any costs associated with this announcement. A solicitation does not presently exist. -------- DRAFT -------- FROM: 772 ESS/PKD 139 BARNES AVE, BLDG 1120 TYNDALL AFB FL 32403 SUBJECT: Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Small Robot - Request for Proposals (RFP) 1. This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued. 2. This requirement is being solicited as full and open competition. The NAICS code for this acquisition is 334511 and the Small Business size standard is 750 employees. All proposals must include a small business subcontracting plan, if applicable. 3. Basis for Award. 772 ESS intends to issue a Firm Fixed Price (FFP) requirements contract to the contractor who is determined to propose the best value to the Government, for performance of all the tasks required in the Performance Work Statement (PWS) (Attachment 1). 4. Best Value Evaluation. For this procurement, the Best Value determination will be made on a trade-off basis. The following factors will be used to evaluate offers: A) Price, B) Technical Approach, and C) Past Performance. Trade-offs may occur between Factors A) Price and B) Technical Approach. The evaluation factor of Technical Approach is significantly more important than the evaluation factor of Price. Factor C) Past Performance will be evaluated as Acceptable or Unacceptable. The responses to this RFP are intended to be evaluated, and award made, without discussions unless discussions are deemed to be necessary. The following process will be followed: A. Price. Total evaluated price will be determined by multiplying the quantities identified in the Price Sheet by the proposed unit price for each Contract Line Item Number (CLIN). The extended amounts for each CLIN will then be totaled to obtain the total for each performance period. The extended total for the basic performance will then be added to the extended total for each Option period, to obtain the total evaluated price. Evaluation of option prices will not obligate the Government to exercise options. B. Technical Approach. This factor will be determined through government testing of the proposed system and evaluation of how well the proposal meets the requirements outlined in the SOW. The offeror's proposal must adequately describe their approach to meeting the Government's needs of maintenance logistics. The technical capabilities of the system will be evaluated through the two phase Government testing as described in the Testing Plan (Attachment 2). A system that does not meet the Key Performance Parameters (KPP's) will not be eligible for award. C. Past Performance: The offeror shall provide examples of past performance (contract number, location, POC, contact information) for services performed in the last three (3) years. Recent and relevant Past Performance will be evaluated based on an assessment of performance under previous contracts. Relevant Past Performance is defined as efforts involving similar scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. In conducting the Past Performance evaluation, the Government reserves the right to use both the information provided in the offeror's Past Performance proposal and information obtained from other sources available to the Government, to include Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS), Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), Electronic Subcontract Reporting System (eSRS), or other databases; interviews with Program Managers, Contracting Officers and Fee Determining Official; the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), and commercial sources. The Government will evaluate past performance as it relates to the SOW requirements. Past Performance will be evaluated as either Acceptable or Unacceptable. A rating of Unacceptable will render a proposal ineligible for award. A lack of Past Performance will not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably and will therefore be evaluated as Acceptable. 5. Price Sheet. The CLIN pricing structure in the Price Sheet (Attachment 3) is based on the estimated number of purchases each year. Contractors are required to fill in the unit price for all CLINs identified in the Price Sheet. Failure to fill in all spaces for unit and total CLIN in the Price Sheet will render the offer unacceptable and the Government will not consider the offer for award, in the absence of discussions. The Unit Price should be rounded to the penny to avoid rounding errors; be consistent with the pricing submitted on the proposal, including any discounts. The Price Sheet Spreadsheet in this workbook is not to be altered except for filling in the unit prices proposed for each labor category. Extended totals will be automatically calculated by the spreadsheet. Since the Government intends to award without discussions, contractors are encouraged to offer their most advantageous pricing. Failure to comply with instructions will render the quote Unacceptable and ineligible for award in the absence of discussions. 6. Testing Instructions. Offerors are responsible for providing a system for Government evaluation and testing. Evaluation and testing will occur in two phases: Phase 1: Offerors are responsible for delivering a system to the AFCEC facility on Tyndall AFB by the proposal due date in Paragraph 7. If shipping via conventional mail services, ship to the Contracting Officer, ******* at ****************************. Please contact the Contracting Officer if intending to use other delivery options. Delivery is FOB destination and is at the offeror's expense. The Government is responsible for any robotic system once it has arrived on site. Offerors should include any training material required to use the system.
