Paints that have exceeded the closed shelf life or pot life recommended by the manufacturer shall not be used.
At the time of application paint shall show no signs of deterioration. Paint that has deteriorated in any manner shall not be used and shall be removed from the site.
Within 8 [eight] hours after cleaning and prior to the deposition of any detectable moisture, contaminants, or corrosion, all surfaces blast cleaned to SSPC SP 7 shall be cleaned of dust and abrasive particle by brush, vacuum cleaner, and/or blown down with clean, dry, compressed air, and given the first coat of paint.
Paint may be applied by spray, roller, or brush. However, any area subject to over-sprays must be fully protected. No over-spray will be tolerated.
Painting in the vicinity of mechanical or electrical equipment shall be applied by brush if there is a possibility of over-sprays on critical components. All equipment, deck, and bulkhead fixtures must be fully protected.
Uniform suspension of pigments shall be maintained during application. Each coat of paint shall be applied so dry film shall be of uniform thickness and free from holidays, bubbles, blisters, laps, excessive or unsightly brush marks, runs, drops, ridges, waves, pinholes, or other voids, and variations in color, texture, and finish. Special attention shall be given to ensure that all edges, corners, crevices, seams, junctions of joining members, interior angles, corrosion pits, welds, bolts, rivets, and similar surface irregularities receive a film thickness equal to that of adjacent painted surfaces.
All coats of all painted surfaces shall be unscarred and completely integral at the time of application of succeeding coats.
All painting shall be accomplished before launching the vessel. The vessel shall not be launched before inspection and acceptance by the government.
The contractor is responsible for submitting to the Contracting Officer's Representative a report of the quantity of sandblast media used and quantity of paint used for the project.
No sandblasting or spray painting is to take place until the Corps of Engineers representative has approved the preventative measures for blast and paint over-spray.

Past performance information of key personnel and crew may be provided if the company has limited or no past performance. In the case of an offeror without a record of relevant past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available, the offeror will be evaluated as neutral on Past Performance, providing the offeror supplies a certified statement with their offer that no past performance information is available. (Past Performance Questionnaire (PPQ) attached.The Government's approach to evaluating past performance is to check the references provided by the contractor to verify satisfactory past performance as well as data obtained from other sources available i.e. government database, past contract files, etc. The offeror is cautioned that while the Government will consider data from other sources, the burden of demonstrating satisfactory past performance rests with the offeror.
It is incumbent upon the offeror to submit sufficient documentation and information for the Government to determine technical acceptability, and satisfactory past performance. Failure to submit sufficient information for the government to determine technical acceptability, and past performance may be cause for rejection of your quote.
