Z--Construct Clinical and Urgent Care Addition 657-351(PB)

Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Heartland Network | Published January 12, 2016  -  Deadline January 27, 2016
cpvs

THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT ANNOUNCEMENT. The Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Heartland Network Contracting Office (NCO) 15, intends to issue a solicitation for a construction project, Construct Clinical and Urgent Care Addition, Project Number 657-351, John J. Pershing VA Medical Center in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. This notice is published to conduct market research to determine if there is a sufficient number of certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB) capable of performing the requirements to warrant a solicitation set-aside. The solicitation will be available on or about March 1st, 2016. If a solicitation is issued, it will be issued as a Request for Proposals (RFP). It will include amendments, if any, and it shall establish the official opening and closing dates and times. This notice is not a Request for Proposal (RFP); it is a market research tool being utilized to determine the availability of sources prior to issuing a Lowest Price Technically Acceptable RFP. The general scope of work is for the proposed addition (approximately 15,600 sf) constructed at the Southeast end of the existing Hospital, and will include interior renovations (approximately 2000 sf) where the addition connects to the Hospital and site and parking improvements. The Clinical Addition is designed as an Ambulatory Healthcare Occupancy per the 2012 NFPA and B Business Classification per the 2012 International Building Code (IBC). The Construction Classification is NFPA Type II (111) and IBC Type IIB. The addition will be fully sprinklered. A landscaped plaza will be created at the new entrance to the Clinical Addition, and an ambulance entrance will be located at the South corner of the facility. Existing surface parking will be renovated to provide a more efficient parking layout integrated with the entrance to the new facility and the existing campus loop road. The lowest level of the Clinical Addition is approximately five feet below the existing Hospital Ground Level, so that an accessible entrance from the East parking lot can be created. The new entrance lobby aligns with the existing Hospital's central corridor. A Police and Campus Security Office, Secured Holding Room and Electrical Room are located adjacent to the Lobby for easy access. The Urgent Care Clinic is located on the opposite side of the Lobby. The Elevator Machine Room and Waiting Rooms are located on the Ground Level of the Clinical Addition. This level aligns with the existing Hospital Basement Floor. Just inside the Hospital on this level, renovations are planned for the Eye Clinic Check-in/Reception and Dispensing and Viewing. The Second Level of the Clinical Addition aligns with the First Floor of the Hospital for access into the existing Primary Care Clinic. On this level, the addition will house Dental Clinic. The building envelope will be architectural precast concrete panels and brick veneer, punch window openings at clinical areas, a glazed curtainwall system at lobbies and entrances and canopies at the entrances. Exterior finish materials have been selected to complement the existing Hospital, and the composition of these materials will create a new identity for this outpatient facility. Power for the Clinical Addition will be fed from Building 20. Lighting within the new building will be provided by LED fixtures. The affected existing light poles in the surface parking lot will be removed and replaced by new fixtures. A mechanical penthouse located on the roof will house the air handling unit serving the addition. One hydraulic elevator will be located inside the Clinical Addition and in line with the existing Hospital central corridor and the entrance to the new Clinics. Space for a future second elevator has been provided as well. The physical security philosophy of the proposed design is based on the VA's Physical Security Design Manual for Mission Critical facilities. This criteria establishes successive lines of defense to protect the facility. The first line of defense exists at the building perimeter, where impact-rated systems at critical locations are coupled with non-rated deterrent systems to control vehicle movement. The next ring of security consists of the building envelope, which is designed to withstand prescribed blast loads and achieve a performance that limits debris and injury hazards. The design is coupled with structural solutions that provide a ductile and redundant structure able to resist progressive collapse through load redistribution should a critical load carrying element be compromised. The final line of defense exists at the building interior where spatial layout and operational security solutions are incorporated to mitigate threats at interior spaces, isolate critical spaces and limit the spread of structural system damage. The estimated performance period is 560 calendar days (90 calendar days for submittals and 470 calendar days for performance) after the Notice to Proceed (NTP) is issued. Location of the work is at the John J. Pershing VA Medical Center in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Pursuant to 38 USC 8127(d) and in accordance with Public Law 109-461, the Veterans Benefits, Health Care and Information Technology Act of 2006, this construction project is a competitive total set- aside for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB). The project cost range is between: $5,000,000.00 to $10,000,000.00. The North American Industry Classification Code (NAICS) for this procurement is 236220 with a small business size standard $36.5 million. This completion period includes final inspection and clean-up. For the purposes of this procurement, a concern is considered a small business if its annual average gross revenue, taken for the last 3 fiscal years, does not exceed the size standard stated above.

The contractor/subcontractor shall not make copies of VA information except as authorized and necessary to perform the terms of the agreement or to preserve electronic information stored on contractor/subcontractor electronic storage media for restoration in case any electronic equipment or data used by the contractor/subcontractor needs to be restored to an operating state. If copies are made for restoration purposes, after the restoration is complete, the copies must be appropriately destroyed. f. If VA determines that the contractor has violated any of the information confidentiality, privacy, and security provisions of the contract, it shall be sufficient grounds for VA to withhold payment to the contractor or third party or terminate the contract for default or terminate for cause under Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) part 12. g. The contractor/subcontractor's firewall and Web services security controls, if applicable, shall meet or exceed VA's minimum requirements. VA Configuration Guidelines are available upon request. h. Except for uses and disclosures of VA information authorized by this contract for performance of the contract, the contractor/subcontractor may use and disclose VA information only in two other situations: (i) in response to a qualifying order of a court of competent jurisdiction, or (ii) with VA's prior written approval.

To the extent known by the contractor/subcontractor, the contractor/subcontractor's notice to VA shall identify the information involved, the circumstances surrounding the incident (including to whom, how, when, and where the VA information or assets were placed at risk or compromised), and any other information that the contractor/subcontractor considers relevant. c. In instances of theft or break-in or other criminal activity, the contractor/subcontractor must concurrently report the incident to the appropriate law enforcement entity (or entities) of jurisdiction, including the VA OIG and Security and Law Enforcement. The contractor, its employees, and its subcontractors and their employees shall cooperate with VA and any law enforcement authority responsible for the investigation and prosecution of any possible criminal law violation(s) associated with any incident. The contractor/subcontractor shall cooperate with VA in any civil litigation to recover VA information, obtain monetary or other compensation from a third party for damages arising from any incident, or obtain injunctive relief against any third party arising from, or related to, the incident. LIQUIDATED DAMAGES FOR DATA BREACH a. Consistent with the requirements of 38 U.S.C. §5725, a contract may require access to sensitive personal information. If so, the contractor is liable to VA for liquidated damages in the event of a data breach or privacy incident involving any SPI the contractor/subcontractor processes or maintains under this contract. b. The contractor/subcontractor shall provide notice to VA of a "security incident" as set forth in the Security Incident Investigation section above. Upon such notification, VA must secure from a non-Department entity or the VA Office of Inspector General an independent risk analysis of the data breach to determine the level of risk associated with the data breach for the potential misuse of any sensitive personal information involved in the data breach. The term 'data breach' means the loss, theft, or other unauthorized access, or any access other than that incidental to the scope of employment, to data containing sensitive personal information, in electronic or printed form, that results in the potential compromise of the confidentiality or integrity of the data. Contractor shall fully cooperate with the entity performing the risk analysis. Failure to cooperate may be deemed a material breach and grounds for contract termination. c. Each risk analysis shall address all relevant information concerning the data breach, including the following: (1) Nature of the event (loss, theft, unauthorized access); (2) Description of the event, including: (a) date of occurrence; (b) data elements involved, including any PII, such as full name, social security number, date of birth, home address, account number, disability code; (3) Number of individuals affected or potentially affected; (4) Names of individuals or groups affected or potentially affected; (5) Ease of logical data access to the lost, stolen or improperly accessed data in light of the degree of protection for the data, e.g., unencrypted, plain text; (6) Amount of time the data has been out of VA control; (7) The likelihood that the sensitive personal information will or has been compromised (made accessible to and usable by unauthorized persons); (8) Known misuses of data containing sensitive personal information, if any; (9) Assessment of the potential harm to the affected individuals; (10) Data breach analysis as outlined in 6500.2 Handbook, Management of Security and Privacy Incidents, as appropriate; and (11) whether credit protection services may assist record subjects in avoiding or mitigating the results of identity theft based on the sensitive personal information that may have been compromised. d. Based on the determinations of the independent risk analysis, the contractor shall be responsible for paying to the VA liquidated damages in the amount of $5,000 per affected individual to cover the cost of providing credit protection services to affected individuals consisting of the following: (1) Notification; (2) One year of credit monitoring services consisting of automatic daily monitoring of at least 3 relevant credit bureau reports; (3) Data breach analysis; (4) Fraud resolution services, including writing dispute letters, initiating fraud alerts and credit freezes, to assist affected individuals to bring matters to resolution; (5) One year of identity theft insurance with $20,000.00 coverage at $0 deductible; and (6) Necessary legal expenses the subjects may incur to repair falsified or damaged credit records, histories, or financial affairs. SECURITY CONTROLS COMPLIANCE TESTING On a periodic basis, VA, including the Office of Inspector General, reserves the right to evaluate any or all of the security controls and privacy practices implemented by the contractor under the clauses contained within the contract. With 10 working-day's notice, at the request of the government, the contractor must fully cooperate and assist in a government-sponsored security controls assessment at each location wherein VA information is processed or stored, or information systems are developed, operated, maintained, or used on behalf of VA, including those initiated by the Office of Inspector General.
