STATEMENT OF WORK ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIEST SERVICE DAY TIME/ FLEX HOURS 1. SCOPE a. The Roman Catholic faith is a significant cross section of patients and staff requiring religious support at NMCSD. Approximately 30% of the hospital nature of pastoral care to Roman Catholics is sacramental in nature. The celebration and administration of sacraments requires the presence of a Catholic Priest. Therefore, it is essential that Catholic Priests are available to provide pastoral care and sacraments to Roman Catholic patients and staff at NMCSD and support deployments of Catholic priests in the civilian community has developed. This shortage is now reflected in the decreased availability of Catholic Chaplains in the naval sea services everywhere. The decreased availability of Catholic Chaplains has created a situation in which adequate Catholic coverage is not available at NMCSD. Therefore, we need to diverse and implement new strategies to meet the spiritual and religious needs of Roman Catholics. This requires us to use Roman Catholic assets as efficiently as possible. There is also a need to identify new and additional sources for Catholic sacramental ministry. b. Although there are efforts being made to recruit Government Service Roman Catholic priests at the GS-12 level, there are borders that prevent a priest from being absent from their designated parishes for a sustained period of time. Additionally, there is a current governing instruction by the Chief of Chaplains that will not allow recruitment under the GS program. c. As a result of the above issues, requirement exists to contract for the non-personal services of a Roman Catholic priest to assist the Catholic chaplain to provide for the pastoral and sacramental needs of Roman Catholics at NMCSD. The civilian priest would be an independent contractor of the Pastoral Care Service chaplain team, administering sacraments, offering spiritual care and counsel, celebrating daily Mass, and responding to other Catholic religious needs as the may arise. 2. DUTIES and RESPONSIBILITIES a. Place of Performance. Work shall be performed at Naval Medical Center San Diego.

This equates to 185 days of on call service in a 12 month period.

POSITION TITLE: Transition Advisor, or Senior Transition Advisor 5. MARKET VALUE: This position has been designated as a "tandem" position that, depending on the qualifications of the candidate, can be filled at either the GS-13 ($73,846 - $96,004 per annum) or GS-14 ($87,263 - $113,444 per annum) equivalent level, non-locality pay. Salaries over and above the pay range will not be entertained or negotiated.

For selected candidates whose salary has been established on a Federal pay scale (i.e. General Schedule) or its equivalent, the base salary (not including locality pay) of their grade/step will be the basis of the salary negotiation. The final salary will be negotiated at a step on the General Schedule (Base) Salary Table articulated as an annual rate amount; however, as an intermittent position, the PSC hired under this contract will provide a maximum of 250 workdays of services on an annual basis (see Section I, item 6, Period of Performance). The selected candidate will be eligible for applicable allowances as described in Section VI on the same basis as U.S. government employees while on temporary duty in foreign areas. As this is a Worldwide, non-locality position, incumbents who do not live in the DC metropolitan area will be provided with travel and/or per diem if they are required to work in Washington, DC.

Extension of the contract is not guaranteed. START DATE: Within 45 days of receiving notification that required security clearance have been obtained. 7. PLACE OF PERFORMANCE: Worldwide 8. SECURITY LEVEL REQUIRED: Secret 9. STATEMENT OF DUTIES POSITION DESCRIPTION BACKGROUND USAID's Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) is seeking highly motivated, highly qualified individuals who want the opportunity to help support rapid international transition programs for priority conflict-prone countries. Created in 1994 as a distinct operating unit within USAID, OTI helps local partners advance peace and democracy in politically-transitioning countries. In support of U.S. foreign policy, OTI seizes emerging windows of opportunity in the political landscape to promote stability, peace, and democracy by catalyzing local initiatives through adaptive and agile programming. Countries experiencing a significant political transition in the midst of a disaster or emerging from civil conflict have unique needs that cannot be fully addressed by traditional disaster relief. Timely and effective assistance to promote and consolidate peaceful, democratic advances can make the difference between a successful or a failed transition. OTI assists in securing peace by aiding indigenous, mostly non-governmental, civil society and media organizations. OTI uses such mechanisms as support for re-integration of ex-combatants into civilian society; development of initiatives to promote national reconciliation; identification of quick-impact community self-help projects to meet urgent economic needs; and aid to independent media outlets and community-based organizations to help promote informed debate and broaden public participation. To respond quickly and effectively and meet its program objectives and mandate OTI retains a group of high level professionals and experts under U.S. Personal Services Contracts (USPSCs). These knowledgeable and skilled professionals make up the vast majority of the OTI work force and are at its forefront implementing and achieving the office's programmatic goals and objectives. Some of these USPSCs serve on intermittent contracts and are referred to in OTI as "bullpenners," providing support in a surge capacity. Those serving in the bullpen must be prepared to work both in Washington and the field, often with little time for preparations. USPSCs are considered employees of USAID for all purposes except programs administered by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) - such as federally sponsored health insurance, life insurance, and retirement benefits. However, there are several other similar benefits that USPSCs may participate in, such as partial reimbursement for health and life insurance costs, as well as full coverage of workers' compensation, among other benefits. For more complete information on USPSC benefits, please see Section VI of this solicitation. For more information about OTI and its country programs please see: http://www.usaid.gov/political-transition-initiatives INTRODUCTION The OTI Transition Advisor/Senior Transition Advisor position utilizes the experience and skills gained from working with political transition programs and operations oversight and management in the field, to provide ad hoc support for assessments, new country start-ups and program implementation support, as well as training and mentoring of staff both in the field and in Washington. The employee will also be involved in strategic design of various OTI country programs and the development of management products for OTI based on lessons learned. The Transition Advisor/Senior Transition Advisor is considered an expert in the field of political transition programming overseas. The OTI Transition Advisor/Senior Transition Advisor position was developed to allow OTI to take advantage of the accumulated experience of field staff following closure of the country program(s) that they managed. As OTI is evolving to carry out more assessments, provide more experientially based technical advice and analysis, and facilitate earlier consideration of countries that face possible political crises, having access to individuals with hands-on experience in transition programming will enhance our ability to deepen understanding, identify opportunities and constraints, and be more prepared to execute programming when necessary.

AAPD 06-10 - PSC MEDICAL EXPENSE PAYMENT RESPONSIBILITY General Provision 28, MEDICAL EXPENSE PAYMENT RESPONSIBILITY(OCTOBER 2006) (a) Definitions. Terms used in this General Provision are defined in 16 FAM 116 available at http://www.state.gov/m/a/dir/regs/fam/16fam/index.htm. Note: Personal services contractors are not eligible to participate in the Federal Employees Health Programs. (b) The regulations in the Foreign Affairs Manual, Volume 16, Chapter 520 (16 FAM 520), Responsibility for Payment of Medical Expenses, apply to this contract, except as stated below. The contractor and each eligible family member are strongly encouraged to obtain health insurance that covers this assignment. Nothing in this provision supersedes or contradicts any other term or provision in this contract that pertains to insurance or medical costs, except that section (e) supplements General Provision 25. "MEDICAL EVACUATION (MEDEVAC) SERVICES." (c) When the contractor or eligible family member is covered by health insurance, that insurance is the primary payer for medical services provided to that contractor or eligible family member(s) both in the United States and abroad. The primary insurer's liability is determined by the terms, conditions, limitations, and exclusions of the insurance policy. When the contractor or eligible family member is not covered by health insurance, the contractor is the primary payer for the total amount of medical costs incurred and the U.S. Government has no payment obligation (see paragraph (f) of this provision). (d) USAID serves as a secondary payer for medical expenses of the contractor and eligible family members who are covered by health insurance, where the following conditions are met: (1) The illness, injury, or medical condition giving rise to the expense is incurred, caused, or materially aggravated while the eligible individual is stationed or assigned abroad; (2) The illness, injury, or medical condition giving rise to the expense required or requires hospitalization and the expense is directly related to the treatment of such illness, injury, or medical condition, including obstetrical care; and (3) The Office of Medical Services (M/MED) or a Foreign Service medical provider (FSMP) determines that the treatment is appropriate for, and directly related to, the illness, injury, or medical condition. (e) The Mission Director may, on the advice of M/MED or an FSMP at post, authorize medical travel for the contractor or an eligible family member in accordance with the General Provision 10, Travel and Transportation Expenses (July 1993), section (i) entitled "Emergency and Irregular Travel and Transportation." In the event of a medical emergency, when time does not permit consultation, the Mission Director may issue a Travel Authorization Form or Medical Services Authorization Form DS-3067, provided that the FSMP or Post Medical Advisor (PMA) is notified as soon as possible following such an issuance. The contractor must promptly file a claim with his or her medevac insurance provider and repay to USAID any amount the medevac insurer pays for medical travel, up to the amount USAID paid under this section. The contractor must repay USAID for medical costs paid by the medevac insurer in accordance with sections (f) and (g) below. In order for medical travel to be an allowable cost under General Provision 10, the contractor must provide USAID written evidence that medevac insurance does not cover these medical travel costs. (f) If the contractor or eligible family member is not covered by primary health insurance, the contractor is the primary payer for the total amount of medical costs incurred. In the event of a medical emergency, the Medical and Health Program may authorize issuance of Form DS-3067, Authorization for Medical Services for Employees and/or Dependents, to secure admission to a hospital located abroad for the uninsured contractor or eligible family member. In that case, the contractor will be required to reimburse USAID in full for funds advanced by USAID pursuant to the issuance of the authorization. The contractor may reimburse USAID directly or USAID may offset the cost from the contractor's invoice payments under this contract, any other contract the individual has with the U.S. Government, or through any other available debt collection mechanism. (g) When USAID pays medical expenses (e.g., pursuant to Form DS-3067, Authorization for Medical Services for Employees and/or Dependents), repayment must be made to USAID either by insurance payment or directly by the contractor, except for the amount of such expenses USAID is obligated to pay under this provision. The Contracting Officer will determine the repayment amount in accordance with the terms of this provision and the policies and procedures for employees contained in 16 FAM 521. When USAID pays the medical expenses, including medical travel costs (see section (e) above), of an individual (either the contractor or an eligible family member) who is covered by insurance, that individual promptly must claim his or her benefits under any applicable insurance policy or policies. As soon as the individual receives the insurance payment, the contractor must reimburse USAID for the full amount that USAID paid on the individual's behalf or the repayment amount determined by the Contracting Officer in accordance with this paragraph, whichever is less. If an individual is not covered by insurance, the contractor must reimburse USAID for the entire amount of all medical expenses and any travel costs the contractor receives from his/her medevac provider. (h) In the event that the contractor or eligible family member fails to recover insurance payments or transfer the amount of such payments to USAID within 90 days, USAID will take appropriate action to collect the payments due, unless such failure is for reasons beyond the control of the USPSC/dependent. (i) Before departing post or terminating the contract, the contractor must settle all medical expense and medical travel costs. If the contractor is insured, he or she must provide proof to the Contracting Officer that those insurance claims have been submitted to the insurance carrier(s) and sign a repayment agreement to repay to USAID any amounts paid by the insurance carrier(s).

PLACE OF PERFORMANCE: Worldwide 8. SECURITY LEVEL REQUIRED: Secret 9. STATEMENT OF DUTIES POSITION DESCRIPTION BACKGROUND USAID's Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI) is seeking highly motivated, highly qualified individuals who want the opportunity to help support rapid international transition programs for priority conflict-prone countries. Created in 1994 as a distinct operating unit within USAID, OTI helps local partners advance peace and democracy in politically-transitioning countries. In support of U.S. foreign policy, OTI seizes emerging windows of opportunity in the political landscape to promote stability, peace, and democracy by catalyzing local initiatives through adaptive and agile programming. Countries experiencing a significant political transition in the midst of a disaster or emerging from civil conflict have unique needs that cannot be fully addressed by traditional disaster relief. Timely and effective assistance to promote and consolidate peaceful, democratic advances can make the difference between a successful or a failed transition. OTI assists in securing peace by aiding indigenous, mostly non-governmental, civil society and media organizations. OTI uses such mechanisms as support for re-integration of ex-combatants into civilian society; development of initiatives to promote national reconciliation; identification of quick-impact community self-help projects to meet urgent economic needs; and aid to independent media outlets and community-based organizations to help promote informed debate and broaden public participation. To respond quickly and effectively and meet its program objectives and mandate OTI retains a group of high level professionals and experts under U.S. Personal Services Contracts (USPSCs). These knowledgeable and skilled professionals make up the vast majority of the OTI work force and are at its forefront implementing and achieving the office's programmatic goals and objectives. Some of these USPSCs serve on intermittent contracts and are referred to in OTI as "bullpenners," providing support in a surge capacity. Those serving in the bullpen must be prepared to work both in Washington and the field, often with little time for preparations. USPSCs are considered employees of USAID for all purposes except programs administered by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) - such as federally sponsored health insurance, life insurance, and retirement benefits. However, there are several other similar benefits that USPSCs may participate in, such as partial reimbursement for health and life insurance costs, as well as full coverage of workers' compensation, among other benefits. For more complete information on USPSC benefits, please see page 14 of this solicitation. For more information about OTI and its country programs please see: http://www.usaid.gov/political-transition-initiatives INTRODUCTION The Operations Advisor is a key position in a busy office that responds rapidly to crisis situations. It is essential that DCHA/OTI personnel receive prompt support. To achieve this, OTI relies on Operations Advisors who have the capacity to work well within a team environment, provide necessary support to a team, and anticipate the needs of a complex organizational unit.

Terms used in this General Provision are defined in 16 FAM 116 available at http://www.state.gov/m/a/dir/regs/fam/16fam/index.htm. Note: Personal services contractors are not eligible to participate in the Federal Employees Health Programs. (b) The regulations in the Foreign Affairs Manual, Volume 16, Chapter 520 (16 FAM 520), Responsibility for Payment of Medical Expenses, apply to this contract, except as stated below. The contractor and each eligible family member are strongly encouraged to obtain health insurance that covers this assignment. Nothing in this provision supersedes or contradicts any other term or provision in this contract that pertains to insurance or medical costs, except that section (e) supplements General Provision 25. "MEDICAL EVACUATION (MEDEVAC) SERVICES." (c) When the contractor or eligible family member is covered by health insurance, that insurance is the primary payer for medical services provided to that contractor or eligible family member(s) both in the United States and abroad. The primary insurer's liability is determined by the terms, conditions, limitations, and exclusions of the insurance policy. When the contractor or eligible family member is not covered by health insurance, the contractor is the primary payer for the total amount of medical costs incurred and the U.S. Government has no payment obligation (see paragraph (f) of this provision). (d) USAID serves as a secondary payer for medical expenses of the contractor and eligible family members who are covered by health insurance, where the following conditions are met: (1) The illness, injury, or medical condition giving rise to the expense is incurred, caused, or materially aggravated while the eligible individual is stationed or assigned abroad; (2) The illness, injury, or medical condition giving rise to the expense required or requires hospitalization and the expense is directly related to the treatment of such illness, injury, or medical condition, including obstetrical care; and (3) The Office of Medical Services (M/MED) or a Foreign Service medical provider (FSMP) determines that the treatment is appropriate for, and directly related to, the illness, injury, or medical condition. (e) The Mission Director may, on the advice of M/MED or an FSMP at post, authorize medical travel for the contractor or an eligible family member in accordance with the General Provision 10, Travel and Transportation Expenses (July 1993), section (i) entitled "Emergency and Irregular Travel and Transportation." In the event of a medical emergency, when time does not permit consultation, the Mission Director may issue a Travel Authorization Form or Medical Services Authorization Form DS-3067, provided that the FSMP or Post Medical Advisor (PMA) is notified as soon as possible following such an issuance. The contractor must promptly file a claim with his or her medevac insurance provider and repay to USAID any amount the medevac insurer pays for medical travel, up to the amount USAID paid under this section. The contractor must repay USAID for medical costs paid by the medevac insurer in accordance with sections (f) and (g) below. In order for medical travel to be an allowable cost under General Provision 10, the contractor must provide USAID written evidence that medevac insurance does not cover these medical travel costs. (f) If the contractor or eligible family member is not covered by primary health insurance, the contractor is the primary payer for the total amount of medical costs incurred. In the event of a medical emergency, the Medical and Health Program may authorize issuance of Form DS-3067, Authorization for Medical Services for Employees and/or Dependents, to secure admission to a hospital located abroad for the uninsured contractor or eligible family member. In that case, the contractor will be required to reimburse USAID in full for funds advanced by USAID pursuant to the issuance of the authorization. The contractor may reimburse USAID directly or USAID may offset the cost from the contractor's invoice payments under this contract, any other contract the individual has with the U.S. Government, or through any other available debt collection mechanism. (g) When USAID pays medical expenses (e.g., pursuant to Form DS-3067, Authorization for Medical Services for Employees and/or Dependents), repayment must be made to USAID either by insurance payment or directly by the contractor, except for the amount of such expenses USAID is obligated to pay under this provision. The Contracting Officer will determine the repayment amount in accordance with the terms of this provision and the policies and procedures for employees contained in 16 FAM 521. When USAID pays the medical expenses, including medical travel costs (see section (e) above), of an individual (either the contractor or an eligible family member) who is covered by insurance, that individual promptly must claim his or her benefits under any applicable insurance policy or policies. As soon as the individual receives the insurance payment, the contractor must reimburse USAID for the full amount that USAID paid on the individual's behalf or the repayment amount determined by the Contracting Officer in accordance with this paragraph, whichever is less. If an individual is not covered by insurance, the contractor must reimburse USAID for the entire amount of all medical expenses and any travel costs the contractor receives from his/her medevac provider. (h) In the event that the contractor or eligible family member fails to recover insurance payments or transfer the amount of such payments to USAID within 90 days, USAID will take appropriate action to collect the payments due, unless such failure is for reasons beyond the control of the USPSC/dependent. (i) Before departing post or terminating the contract, the contractor must settle all medical expense and medical travel costs. If the contractor is insured, he or she must provide proof to the Contracting Officer that those insurance claims have been submitted to the insurance carrier(s) and sign a repayment agreement to repay to USAID any amounts paid by the insurance carrier(s).

STATEMENT OF WORK ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIEST SERVICE DAY TIME/ FLEX HOURS 1. SCOPE a. The Roman Catholic faith is a significant cross section of patients and staff requiring religious support at NMCSD. Approximately 30% of the hospital nature of pastoral care to Roman Catholics is sacramental in nature. The celebration and administration of sacraments requires the presence of a Catholic Priest. Therefore, it is essential that Catholic Priests are available to provide pastoral care and sacraments to Roman Catholic patients and staff at NMCSD and support deployments of Catholic priests in the civilian community has developed. This shortage is now reflected in the decreased availability of Catholic Chaplains in the naval sea services everywhere. The decreased availability of Catholic Chaplains has created a situation in which adequate Catholic coverage is not available at NMCSD. Therefore, we need to diverse and implement new strategies to meet the spiritual and religious needs of Roman Catholics. This requires us to use Roman Catholic assets as efficiently as possible. There is also a need to identify new and additional sources for Catholic sacramental ministry. b. Although there are efforts being made to recruit Government Service Roman Catholic priests at the GS-12 level, there are borders that prevent a priest from being absent from their designated parishes for a sustained period of time. Additionally, there is a current governing instruction by the Chief of Chaplains that will not allow recruitment under the GS program. c. As a result of the above issues, requirement exists to contract for the non-personal services of a Roman Catholic priest to assist the Catholic chaplain to provide for the pastoral and sacramental needs of Roman Catholics at NMCSD. The civilian priest would be an independent contractor of the Pastoral Care Service chaplain team, administering sacraments, offering spiritual care and counsel, celebrating daily Mass, and responding to other Catholic religious needs as the may arise. 2. DUTIES and RESPONSIBILITIES a. Place of Performance. Work shall be performed at Naval Medical Center San Diego.

The contactor shall provide sacramental and pastoral care and counseling to staff, patients and their families, prepare and maintain records, be available to celebrate Mass, participate in meetings required by the Department Head of Pastoral Care Service, and respond to other Catholic needs as they may arise. e.

Primary Structural Engineering A-E services are required for preparing: Requests for Proposals (RFP) packages for Design-Build projects; fully designed plans and specifications; structural investigations, studies, evaluations, and recommendations for upgrade of existing facilities; antiterrorism design related to analysis of blast effects and design to prevent progressive collapse; innovative structural system design including seismic base isolation, seismic damping, passive dissipating systems and use of fiber reinforced polymers; and other structural engineering services. Secondary A-E services may be required for: preparation of DD Form 1391 or similar planning and programming related documents; technical reviews of Government prepared RFP packages for Design-Build projects and Government prepared design documents; and construction contract support services (CCSS) or post-construction award services (PCAS). Support services may include: topographic surveying; geotechnical engineering; cost estimating; material testing; corrosion testing; and identification and abatement methods of 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 shall be $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 maximum value of individual task orders executed under this contract is $3,500,000; however, the preponderance of task orders will be less than $500,000. 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 (366 for leap year) 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 post construction award services may be negotiated on individual task orders for unilateral exercise. The estimated start date is October 2014. The NAICS Code for this procurement is 541330 (Engineering Services) and the annual small business size standard is $14 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: Brooks Act (PL 92-582) and Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) Part 36.6 selection procedures apply.

CRITERION 4, PAST PERFORMANCE: Past performance with relevant contracts/projects with Government agencies and private industry in terms of cost control, quality of work, compliance with performance schedules with emphasis on example projects presented in Section F. Firms will be evaluated based on past performance assessments and other available information regarding past performance. Points of contact provided in other criteria may be contacted. A proposal with no record of relevant past performance information shall be evaluated neither favorably nor unfavorably. Superior performance ratings on relevant projects may be considered more favorably in the evaluation process. Submission Requirements: Show past performance on contracts with Government agencies and private industry in terms of cost control, quality of work, and compliance with performance schedules. Submit an A-E Contractor Appraisal Support System (ACASS) or a Past Performance Questionnaire (PPQ) evaluation for each project listed under Criterion 2. If a completed ACASS evaluation is available, it shall be submitted with the completed SF330 package. If there is not a completed ACASS evaluation, the PPQ included with this notice is provided for the Offeror or its team members to submit to the client for each project. AN OFFEROR SHALL NOT SUBMIT A PPQ WHEN AN ACASS EVALUATION IS AVAILABLE. If an ACASS 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.
