The Grantee is seeking to develop multiple, near-offshore wind power projects along the coastline in Soc Trang province. The Grantee has secured access to over 65 kilometers of the Soc Trang coastal area for wind energy development and has plans to develop a pipeline of near-offshore wind projects that could generate up to 2,000 MW. The first of these projects will be the 170 MW Phu Cuong 1 Wind Farm Project at the southern end of the Soc Trang coastline, which will provide electricity to local customers. This total Project would be implemented in three phases, with capacities of 30, 60, and 80 MW, respectively. Portions of a background Definitional Mission is provided for reference in Annex 2. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF STUDY COMPONENTS The focus of the feasibility study will be to perform a supplemental wind resource and energy assessment, water surveying and geotechnical work, an assessment of the permitting and land control issues, a logistics study, an electrical grid interconnection study and foundation design, a review of operational risks and issues, construction cost estimates and schedule, a preliminary assessment of the environmental and social impacts, an assessment of the potential developmental impacts, and a financing plan. The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $807,000 grant to the Grantee from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA). A detailed Request for Proposals (RFP), which includes requirements for the Proposal, the Terms of Reference, and portions of a background definitional mission report are available from USTDA, at 1000 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 1600, Arlington, VA 22209-3901.

Selection shall be in accordance with the Brooks Act, P.L. 92-582 (40 U.S.C. 1101-1104). After the successful offeror(s) has been selected, the resultant contract award will be dependent on the conclusion of successful negotiations. In order to be eligible for award of this contract, the successful offeror(s) must possess, or be eligible to obtain, a Defense Security Service (DSS) Secret Facility Clearance (FCL), with Secret safeguarding capability, issued in accordance with the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual, DOD 5220.22-M. Personnel requiring access to classified information or Controlled Access Areas (CAAs) at DOS locations must possess a Secret personnel security clearance issued by the Defense Security Service (DSS). Additionally, the successful offeror selected for contract award must possess, or immediately obtain an Information System (IS) or standalone computer, approved by DSS, for processing classified information. Performance on this contract will require access to the Department's ProjNet-C, for receipt and transmission of all classified information, and a DSS-approved classified IS for processing classified information. Offerors already possessing the necessary FCL should submit their appropriate Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) Code with their Stage 2 submissions. If an uncleared offeror from the Stage 2 short-list is recommended to the Director for selection, the Department of State will sponsor the uncleared firm for an FCL. Firms which form joint ventures must also comply with the above FCL requirements. Each entity comprising the joint venture must be issued an FCL, as well as the joint venture. Sponsorship does not guarantee that the firm will receive the clearance. Contract award cannot be made until the selected firm has been issued at least an Interim Secret FCL. A period of 90 calendar days, from the date of sponsorship, will be allowed for an uncleared contractor to obtain a Secret FCL. If the firm has not obtained the FCL after 90 days, the Government may terminate negotiations with the offeror and may move to select another short-listed firm for award. Foreign firms are not eligible for FCLs. Only U.S. firms organized and operating in the U.S. or Puerto Rico, or a U.S. possession or trusted territory, are eligible for facility clearances. U.S. firms which are determined to be under Foreign Ownership, Control or Influence (FOCI) are not eligible for an FCL unless actions (as directed and approved by DSS) can be taken to effectively negate or reduce associated FOCI risks to an acceptable level. This process often takes more than the 90 calendar days allotted for clearance. Information on the clearance process can be found on the DSS website, at http://www.dss.mil, under Industrial Security. Certain team subcontractors/consultants may also require FCLs and personnel security clearances. Uncleared team subcontractors/consultants must be sponsored by the short-listed firm, only after that firm receives its own FCL.
