To remain registered in the SAM database after the initial registration, the Contractor is required to review and update on an annual basis from the date of initial registration or subsequent updates its information in the SAM database to ensure it is current, accurate and complete. Updating information in the SAM does not alter the terms and conditions of this contract and is not a substitute for a properly executed contractual document. (2)(i) If a Contractor has legally changed its business name, quote mark doing business as quote mark name, or division name (whichever is shown on the contract), or has transferred the assets used in performing the contract, but has not completed the necessary requirements regarding novation and change-of-name agreements in FAR subpart 42.12, the Contractor shall provide the responsible Contracting Officer a minimum of one business day's written notification of its intention to (A) change the name in the SAM database; (B) comply with the requirements of subpart 42.12; and (C) agree in writing to the timeline and procedures specified by the responsible Contracting Officer.

(3) The Contractor shall not change the name or address for EFT payments or manual payments, as appropriate, in the SAM record to reflect an assignee for the purpose of assignment of claims (see Subpart 32.8, Assignment of Claims). Assignees shall be separately registered in the SAM database. Information provided to the Contractor's SAM record that indicates payments, including those made by EFT, to an ultimate recipient other than that Contractor will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the quote mark Suspension of payment quote mark paragraph of the EFT clause of this contract. (4) Offerors and Contractors may obtain information on registration and annual confirmation requirements via SAM accessed through https://www.acquisition.gov. (u) Unauthorized Obligations. (1) Except as stated in paragraph (u)(2) of this clause, when any supply or service acquired under this contract is subject to any End User License Agreement (EULA), Terms of Service (TOS), or similar legal instrument or agreement, that includes any clause requiring the Government to indemnify the Contractor or any person or entity for damages, costs, fees, or any other loss or liability that would create an Anti-Deficiency Act violation (31 U.S.C. 1341), the following shall govern: (i) Any such clause is unenforceable against the Government. (ii) Neither the Government nor any Government authorized end user shall be deemed to have agreed to such clause by virtue of it appearing in the EULA, TOS, or similar legal instrument or agreement. If the EULA, TOS, or similar legal instrument or agreement is invoked through an ``I agree'' click box or other comparable mechanism (e.g., ``click-wrap'' or ``browse-wrap'' agreements), execution does not bind the Government or any Government authorized end user to such clause. (iii) Any such clause is deemed to be stricken from the EULA, TOS, or similar legal instrument or agreement. (2) Paragraph (u)(1) of this clause does not apply to indemnification by the Government that is expressly authorized by statute and specifically authorized under applicable agency regulations and procedures. (v) Incorporation by reference. The Contractor's representations and certifications, including those completed electronically via the System for Award Management (SAM), are incorporated by reference into the contract.

The Contractor shall comply with the provisions of this paragraph (a) if this contract was awarded using other than sealed bid, is in excess of the simplified acquisition threshold, and does not contain the clause at 52.215-2, Audit and Records -- Negotiation. (1) The Comptroller General of the United States, or an authorized representative of the Comptroller General, shall have access to and right to examine any of the Contractor's directly pertinent records involving transactions related to this contract.

Waste Compost Facility at US Army Garrison, West Point West Point, NY

Department of the Army, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers | Published July 1, 2015  -  Deadline August 31, 2015
cpvs

Synopsis of Waste Compost Facility at US Army Garrison, West Point West Point, NY The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District intends to issue a request for a design-build contractor to conduct an assessment and study of current solid waste streams at United States Military Academy-West Point (USMA-WP). Based on this assessment, the design-build contractor will review available technologies, make recommendations and develop a design for the waste composting system. The recommendations from the completed assessment will be integrated in the system design. The design-build contractor will obtain all permits, construct the waste composting system, provide training to USMA personnel and develop a program that will allow USMA- Department of Public Works (DPW) to collect data to ensure waste stream amounts are documented and the right combination of waste stream are maintained for optimal operation of the system. The final design and function of the composting system must be formally accepted by the Government prior to issuance of the construction notice to proceed. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 562219 In accordance with FAR 36.204 and DFAR 236.204, the estimated magnitude of construction is between $1,000,000 and $5,000,000. The anticipated period of performance for this acquisition is 365 calendar days from the date the contractor receives the Notice to Proceed (NTP). This acquisition will be Unrestricted for Full and Open Competition. The acquisition process that will be used is a Design-Build, One-Step Request for Proposal, Lowest Priced Technically Acceptable (LPTA) procurement. Design-Bid-Build (DBB) type procurement is not appropriate. Award will be made to one (1) offeror who is deemed by the Government to be responsible in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), conforms to the solicitation requirements; and whose proposal, judged by an overall assessment of the evaluation criteria, represents the best value to the Government. Offerors will be evaluated based on technical factors including Specialized Experience, Past Performance, and Qualifications of the Offeror's Team and Price. The One Step Design Build evaluation will use the Lowest Price Technically Acceptable method to determine the awardee among those offerors that have provided proposals. The following will be the technical evaluation factors for informational purposes only. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for this project you must respond to the solicitation and any amendments. Final information regarding the selection criteria and requirements for this procurement will be provided in the solicitation on or about 16 July 2015. FACTOR 1 - SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE - SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS: To demonstrate recent, relevant experience, the Offeror must use the Specialized Experience forms - (Attachment 2 for construction experience). If the Offeror is a Joint Venture, Limited Liability Corporation, members of a Teaming Agreement, or integrated design-build firm provide experience information for design and construction, demonstrating the experience of each proposed design and construction entity as is relevant to their proposed role on this project. Submit projects that are currently well underway (designed and at least 75% construction progress completed) or completed and turned over no longer than seven (7) years preceding the date of this Solicitation. If any firm has multiple divisions, limit the project examples to those performed by the division submitting the offer. The Offeror shall submit a minimum of two (2) projects, one of which must have been performed by the Prime Contractor, but no more than seven (7) projects for Factor 1. At least one (1) project must demonstrate adapt/build or design/build experience. If the Offeror proposes to use an architect-engineer firm as part of the Offeror's team, the architect-engineer firm shall submit a minimum of two (2) projects for Factor 1. The total number of projects submitted for Factor 1 shall not exceed seven (7) project examples. EVALUATION CRITERIA: The Offeror will be evaluated on the relevancy of the experience demonstrated in the submitted EXPERIENCE INFORMATION FACT SHEET, Form A2. Factor 1 shall be rated in accordance with information provided below. The projects submitted should include the following criteria.  Projects shall be considered similar in scope if they contain any of the following: o If the project included waste stream analysis of food, yard waste (leaves, grass, tree trimmings, etc.) and wastewater treatment sludge. o If the project required the Offeror to obtain the required environmental permitting associated with implementation and construction of a composting facility o A composting facility which handles an estimated amount of waste greater than or equal to ten (10) tons per day. o Required the Offerors involvement in stakeholder and public relations facilitation associated with implementation of a solid waste treatment system.  Projects shall be considered similar in magnitude if they contain any of the following: o Any project where the construction cost was greater than or equal to $500,000. Where this combination of experience includes the following, the proposal may be rated as deficient (the following list does not encompass all possible deficiencies): - Experience examples are not verifiable. The Government reserves the right to verify the experience by reviewing the Construction Contractor (or Architect-Engineer) Appraisal Support System (CCASS/ACASS), other DOD or Government appraisal systems or to interview commercial owners or references. The Government may check any or all cited references to verify supplied information. The relevant experience of key personnel proposed for this project will not be evaluated or considered under this factor. Rating Guidelines for Factor 1: The government will not award to an Offeror that receives an unacceptable rating for this factor. Acceptable: Proposal clearly meets the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Unacceptable: Proposal does not clearly meet the minimum requirements of the solicitation. 3.1.2. FACTOR 2 - CONTRACTOR PAST PERFORMANCE The Offeror will provide past performance information on the projects submitted under Factor 1 using the past performance questionnaires included in the solicitation. In addition to the past performance questionnaires provided, the Government intends to use the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS). However, the Government may review any other sources of information for evaluating past performance. Other sources may include, but are not limited to, past performance information retrieved through Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS), using all CAGE/DUNS numbers of team members (partnership, joint venture, teaming arrangement, or parent company/subsidiary/affiliate) identified in the Offeror's proposal, inquiries of owner representative(s) or other personnel with knowledge of performance, Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), Electronic Subcontract Reporting System (eSRS), and any other known sources. The past performance evaluation team will review this past performance information and determine the quality and usefulness as it applies to a performance competence assessment as described in the guidelines, below. Negative performance information includes the issuance of cure notices, terminations for default, or the requirement for excessive oversight in order to achieve satisfactory completion. A single example of negative performance, if significant enough, may lead to a negative rating for this factor. Likewise, multiple examples of less significant negative performance may lead to a negative rating for this factor. In conducting the performance competence assessment, the Government will consider the relevancy of the past performance information available. Highly relevant projects are those that are similar in scope, magnitude, and complexity to the current solicitation, although the past performance may still be considered if the projects do not fully meet the criteria for Factor 1, Past Experience. In addition, the Offeror is required to provide any information on past projects (within the past five (5) years) that were terminated (for any reason) or in which they have been issued a CURE NOTICE and provide accompanying information as to the details for such action(s) with an explanation of why they were terminated or issued a cure notice. EVALUATION CRITERIA: The Government will evaluate the relevancy of the Offeror's record of past performance information in accordance with the table shown below. Based on the Offeror's recent relevant performance record, the Government will make a determination as to the expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort. A performance confidence assessment rating will be assigned in accordance with the table shown below. Where no recent/relevant performance record is available or the Offeror's performance record is so sparse that no meaningful confidence assessment rating can be reasonably assigned, the Offeror will receive an Unknown Confidence (neutral) rating. This rating is neither favorable nor unfavorable. Rating Guidelines for Factor 2 PAST PERFORMANCE RATINGS Past Performance Relevancy Ratings Rating Definition Very Relevant Present/past performance effort involved essentially the same scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Relevant Present/past performance effort involved similar scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Somewhat Relevant Present/past performance effort involved some of the scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Not Relevant Present/past performance effort involved little or none of the scope and magnitude of effort and complexities this solicitation requires. Performance Confidence Assessments Rating Description Substantial Confidence Based on the Offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a high expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort. Satisfactory Confidence Based on the Offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a reasonable expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort. Limited Confidence Based on the Offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has a low expectation that the Offeror will successfully perform the required effort. No Confidence Based on the Offeror's recent/relevant performance record, the Government has no expectation that the Offeror will be able to successfully perform the required effort. Unknown Confidence (Neutral) No recent/relevant performance record is available or the Offeror's performance record is so sparse that no meaningful confidence assessment rating can be reasonably assigned. The government will not award to an Offeror that receives an Unsatisfactory Rating for this factor. The Government will review the relative risk of the contractors ratings but normally not award to an Offeror that receives unacceptable rating in this factor: EVALUATION AND RATING SYSTEM 3.1.2.1 General: The Government will review the proposals and rate the quality of each evaluation factor and sub-factor(s).

DESCRIPTION: This is a Pre-Solicitation Notice for the following services under project number 436-17-104 - Building 141 Heating System at the Fort Harrison Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) is located at 3687 Veterans Drive, Fort Harrison, MT 59636. THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS NOT A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL; NO SOLICITATION PACKAGE WILL BE ISSUED UNTIL AFTER AN EVALUATION HAS BEEN MADE ON THE PROVIDED SF-330s. The SF-330 can be downloaded through the GSA Forms Library at: http://www.gsa.gov/portal/forms/type/TOP, scroll down and locate and click on the SF330 hyperlink entitled, "Architect-Engineer Qualifications." Interested firms should submit their current SF 330, Parts I and II, to joseph.wingfield@va.gov. The SF 330s are due no later than 2:00 p.m. Mountain Time, September 9, 2015. SCOPE OF WORK: The VA Montana Healthcare System requires the services of a qualified Architect / Engineer (A/E) firm to provide design services allowing for the rebuild of existing hydronic plumbing and control of fin-tube perimeter convectors and the connection of hydronic heating water plumbing with heating coils installed in AHUs 1-3 and VAV boxes throughout building 141 at the VA Medical Center at Ft. Harrison MT. Project 436-05-101 Building 141 Air Conditioning saw the replacement of Air handling units and installation of VAV boxes in building 141. Reheat coil plumbing was eliminated from the project due to budgetary concerns. In 2010 a low pressure steam heating system was installed across the campus. This project will expand capacity of the existing steam to hot water heat exchangers and install hydronic plumbing necessary to connect the heating water generation system to reheat coils in the air handling units and VAV boxes. The design of project 436-05-101 was engineered to use the previous 30 psi steam heating system to directly heat coils in AHUs 1-3 and power a shell and tube heat exchanger for VAV hydronic water. The design will have to be updated to accommodate the heating water generation system. Heating coils installed in 2005 will have to be confirmed capable of operating with heating water and new calculations performed to update the design of the heating water delivery system. Building 141 is heated via fin-tube perimeter convectors. Existing control hardware for the convectors in many rooms is inadequate or inoperable and requires installation of new control hardware and piping. The A/E will determine which units are in need of repair and what work is needed to make all units operable. Existing heating water pumps will need the expanded capacity confirmed as well as a redesign of hardware and controls to optimize pump operation. The A/E will update the control of the convector heating system and the AHU and VAV re-heats. Existing VAVs service multiple rooms and there is difficulty moderating heating throughout the zones. The A/E will analyze the system layout and determine critical areas which could use additional VAV boxes or powered unit heaters to better moderate heating and cooling loads such as stairwells and rooms with northeast, southwest, and exterior corner exposures. VAV control programming will need to be coordinated with room thermostats to ensure even and adequate heating across zones. The A/E will evaluate and design improvements for all aspects of the HVAC system including exterior air intake louvers, air handler loads and characteristics, duct sensors, economizer controls, static pressure characteristics, duct leakage, VAV operation, and all physical and DDC controls with the existing Johnson Controls System. All control points of the AHUs and VAVs will be integrated with the JCI graphics and operations system. The air delivery, exhaust and heating water systems shall be tested and balanced as part of the project. Previous projects abandoned in place medium pressure steam piping. The A/E will investigate locations and possible utility of the piping, and if it's determined to be of no use to the VA develop a demolition plan for its removal. The A/E firm will prepare drawings and specifications in sufficient detail such that qualified outside General Contracting companies can prepare accurate and timely proposals for the desired construction work. Microsoft Project scheduling and management software will be used by both the A/E and Contractors to allow for regular tracking of schedules and work by the VAMC. Schedules with MS Project will be regularly sent to the COR upon project initiation and whenever significant changes occur in the schedule. All work must be designed within a construction cost range of between $500,000 and $1,000,000. The A/E will provide an initial itemized construction cost estimate as part of the 30% submission from which the VA may elect potential deducts equivalent to a minimum of 20% of the projected construction cost of the full scope OR expand the scope to fully utilize the anticipated budget. Deducts are expected to be incorporated in a manner that allows for segregation at the Construction Document stage. The cost estimate shall be carried forward and modified to reflect changes on each subsequent submission. The A/E firm is required to submit six submissions of material for preliminary review at the 30%, 50%, 90%, 95%, 100%, and Final Construction Documents - Production stage for review. The Medical Center must remain operational throughout the construction period and a detailed sequence of work will be provided by the A/E to minimize impact of the construction. The A/E will provide documents at each submission as indicated in the statement of work. The NAICS code for this procurement will be 541330, Engineering Services. The current small business size standard for 541330 is $15 million.
