The U.S. EPA intends to negotiate on a sole source basis, under the authority of FAR 13.106-1(b)(1)(i), with the West Virginia University Research Corporation for the procurement of ¿A rapid development of chemical process manufacturing systems for generating life cycle inventories.¿ Specific tasks and deliverables in this Statement of Work are as follows: Tasks The Contractor shall be responsible for the following tasks: Task 1: Create and Implement a Quality Assurance Project Plan Task 2: Perform a review on technical process design compendium (textbooks, peer reviewed journal articles, industry reports, etc.) to establish the state of the art techniques to develop and create process operation units. Task 3: Design these blocks of operating units (major chemical process equipment such as reactor, separator, purification, heat exchanger, combustion control devices, recovery devices, etc.) for the production of chemical precursors and chemical products. Task 4: Develop, model, and report the production of some case studies of interest (selected by the COR) for chemical precursors and chemical products for the generation of their life cycle inventory by using the developed spreadsheet block functions. Task 5: Carry out steady state and time variable analyses and provide the optimal and the most sustainable component models for generating life cycle inventories of chemical processes with the overall intention of providing accurate process models. Task 6: Communicate research progress and concerns via teleconference and/or webinar to the EPA on a bi-weekly basis. EPA has identified the West Virginia University Research Corporation (WVURC) as the only known source able to satisfy the Government¿s requirements since it has the necessary unique process systems engineering capabilities, including, but not limited to high performance steady state, dynamic, and real time simulation tools for chemical processes, and state-of-the-art facilities to conduct this research. WVURC has a first-tier process systems engineering group with strong emphasis on capabilities in the areas of mass and energy LCI process simulation, advanced process control, process optimization, and process design and sustainability assessment of emerging energy systems and chemical processes. In particular, the AVESTAR Center (Advanced Virtual Energy Simulation Training and Research) housed at WVURC is being leveraged for performing a number of unique research projects in the areas of advanced process control and optimization of model components for the calculation of energy and material flow needs. In addition, this Center is also foreseen as a platform for chemical process optimal design and sustainability assessment studies. The AVESTAR Center is designed to promote the study, research, and training of students in the operation and control of advanced and clean power generation systems, pollution control and management, combustion control and recovery devices. The Center houses a one-of-a-kind facility with a full featured, high fidelity, Operator Training System (OTS) of an integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) coal-fed power plant with carbon capture and other pollution control equipment. The OTS has over 300 predefined malfunctions for performing in-case-of-fault assessments of mass and energy fluctuations, a complete alarm system, and well over 100 piping and instrumentation diagram (P&ID) screens can be accessed through the 12 human machine interface (HMI) screens. The process equipment units comprising the IGCC, pollution control systems, heat exchangers, separator, reactor, recovery, purification, and recovery devices can be viewed, operated and can be evaluated in terms of inventories of material and energy needs. The OTS can be used for time variable start-up and shut down simulations, steady state, as well as normal and malfunctioned operation. This system provides a virtual environment for all the process units in the OTS, in which users may manipulate an avatar through the plant and monitor the process (including, but not limited to, releases, material and energy flows) through instrument charts that can be seen in the ITS. The principal investigator for this research, Professor Fernando V. Lima focuses on the development and implementation of process systems engineering methods for modeling, simulation and advanced control of energy systems and chemical processes. Dr. Lima is a nationally recognized expert on process system engineering, process modeling, control, and optimization. In addition he is conducting novel research approaches on process modeling, optimization, and control for sustainability. The anticipated award date is June, 2016. This will result in a firm-fixed price contract. We anticipate issuing a solicitation on or about March 29, 2017. This procurement will be accomplished under FAR Part 13 Simplified Acquisition Procedures. Notices of any amendments to this FedBizOps synopsis, will be posted using the FedConnect web portal at www.fedconnect.net.

FAR 52.212-1 Instructions to Offerors - Commercial ItemsFAR 52.212-2 Evaluation Criteria - Commercial Items: (a) The Government will award up to three BPA's from this solicitation to the responsible Offerors whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be most advantageous to the Government based on evaluation criteria. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: 1. Technical Capability - to be determined technically acceptably offerors shall submit for evaluation, documentation of their capability to provide the specified services in accordance with the project Performance Work Statement. The offeror shall provide sufficient documentation of their technical capability, by including technical literature, one to three page narrative addressing ability to provide sandblasting and painting services, equipment list, Key Personnel List, Resumes, or any other information to enable the Government to determine the offeror's capability to perform work. 2. Satisfactory Past Performance - to demonstrate satisfactory past performance the offeror shall provide documentation of satisfactory performance on past or current contracts (3-5 years) of a similar type, size, scope and complexity, as well as, provide three (3) references, including names and contact information of references who can verify their past performance. 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.

ARCHITECT-ENGINEERING (A-E) SERVICES AT EIELSON AFB, AK. "Notice to Offeror(s)/Supplier(s): Funds are not presently available for this effort. No award will be made under this solicitation until funds are available. The Government reserves the right to cancel this solicitation, either before or after the closing date for receipt of proposals. In the event the Government cancels this solicitation, the Government has no obligation to reimburse an offeror for any costs." The 354th Contracting Squadron is seeking qualification packages and past performance information from vendors interested in providing professional architect and engineering services at Eielson AFB, AK to replace the low voltage electrical panels, lighting and wiring throughout the Central Heat & Power Plant (CH&PP). BACKGROUND: The CH&PP is a coal-fired cogeneration power plant providing steam for district heat and electricity for the facilities on Eielson AFB. The plant was originally built in 1952 and has six floors (including the basement). The majority of the low voltage (480V and lower voltage) electrical panels, lighting throughout the power plant and the interconnecting wiring are old and in poor condition. In addition, lighting levels in many parts of the plant are inadequate. In 2012 and 2013, a design was produced for replacement of all of the lighting and lighting panels in the plant as well as in the cooling pond pump house and the ash silo building. At the end of the design, it was determined that the project was too costly and should be broken into three phases, however, funding was not available at the time to modify the existing design contract. The design consultant, however, did provide a rough phasing plan. Since completion of the 2013 design, Boilers 5 and 6 at the plant have been replaced. As part of the boiler replacements, the lighting around those boilers has also been replaced, and other electrical changes have been made. Almost all areas inside the plant are dusty. Many areas are classified as Class II, Div 1 or 2, Group F. In addition, many of the metal surfaces inside may be coated with lead-based paint and there may be asbestos containing materials in the project area. This is a competitive selection process in which competing offeror's qualifications will be evaluated in accordance with (IAW) FAR Part 36.6 to determine the most highly qualified firms. The Government intends to award one Firm Fixed-Price contract. IAW FAR 36.603(b): To be considered for architect-engineer contracts, a firm must file with the appropriate office or board the Standard Form 330, "Architect-Engineer Qualifications," Part II and when applicable, SF 330, Part I. Responders are advised that the Government will not pay for any information or administrative costs incurred in response to this posting; all costs associated with responding will be solely at the interested parties' expense. Failure to respond to this post does not preclude participation in the subsequent technical evaluation so long as a firm's SF 330 is currently on file with the 354th Contracting Squadron. It is the responsibility of the potential offerors to monitor these sites for additional information pertaining to this requirement. This acquisition is being solicited on a 100% Small Business Set-Aside basis. The NAICS 541330 (Engineering Services) applies to this acquisition, with a small business size standard of $15M. The Disclosure of Magnitude for the subsequest construction project is between $1,000,000 and $5,000,000 IAW FAR 36.204(f). The work to be performed shall include but is not limited to: 1. Site investigation, investigation of options, development of design concepts, and production of an investigation report, including a discussion of options with recommendations and cost estimates.2. Development of the design documents for the selected option - including design analysis, specifications, drawings and cost estimates.3. Attendance at the various project related meetings and review conferences.4. Responding to review comments and making revisions to the design as agreed upon during the reviews.5. Producing and submitting the final project design documents. A-E EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENTS: A-E's experience shall include that which is commensurate with the requirements specific to the scope of design. A. The ideal firm should have experience designing modifications and upgrades to low voltage electrical systems and lighting, especially in operating industrial plants and in hot, dirty and hazardous environments, specifically Class II, Div1 and 2, Group F; experience in surveying existing facilities for hazardous materials, and design including remediation of such hazards as necessary to complete the other work of the project.

Ultrasonic Air Velocity Monitors

Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention | Published January 27, 2017  -  Deadline February 10, 2017

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention NIOSH - Pittsburgh Mining Research Division intends to award a sole source firm fixed price purchase order to Sick, Incorporated of 6900 West 110th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55438 for two (2) ultrasonic air velocity monitors. Sick, Incorporated ultrasonic air velocity monitors gives a similar airflow reading compared to what MSHA approves for reading the ventilation in an entryway. We found no other product that is certified for installation in a coal mine. This is the only ultrasonic air velocity monitor that is explosion proof. This system is a simple low voltage sensor that operates using safe ultrasonic pulses. This sensor easily incorporates with our Atmospheric Monitoring System for digital processing of the airflow. There are other airflow sensors approved but they only give airflow at a single point of entry. With this instrument we will be able to average the entire cross section of the entry for a comparable method that is used by MSHA to verify airflow in a mining section. This contract action is for supplies or services for which the Government intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of FAR 13.106-1(b) (SAP) and 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1). Interested persons may identify their interest and capability to respond to the requirement or submit proposals. This notice of intent is not a request for competitive quotations. However, all quotations / responses received within fifteen (15) days of the issuance of this notice will be considered by the Government. A determination by the Government not to compete this proposed contract based upon responses to this notice is solely within the discretion of the Government. Information received will normally be considered solely for the purpose of determining whether to conduct a competitive procurement. Any quotation/response should be emailed to the contract specialist at JCarolan@cdc.gov by COB 02/10/17.

Department of Veterans Affairs, VA Office of Construction & Facilities Management | Published January 26, 2017  -  Deadline February 10, 2017
cpvs

This is a 15 DAY PRE-SOLICITATION NOTICE provided for INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. THIS IS NOT A SOLICITATION FOR PROPOSALS AND NO CONTRACT WILL BE AWARDED FROM THIS NOTICE/SYNOPSIS, THEREFORE NO SF-330 FORM (OR A RESPONSE) IS REQUIRED AT THIS TIME. BACKGROUND The National Cemetery Administration (NCA) is one of three Administrations within the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) that provide for the delivery of services and benefits to Veterans. NCA is responsible for providing cemetery services to Veterans and other eligible persons pursuant to the provisions of the National Cemeteries Act of 1973 and other statutory authority and regulations (38 U.S.C. 2306, 38 U.S.C. Chapter 24, 38 CFR Parts 38-39.) NCA s responsibilities include the operation and maintenance of 134 national cemeteries, and the construction of new national cemeteries. PERFORMANCE PERIOD The performance period for the design of the project is 1,490 calendar days (395 days to bid documents and 1095 days for CPS) from Notice to Proceed (NTP). SITE LOCATION The site is located at 1158 Morgan Rd, Bridgeville, PA 15017 / Washington County southwest of Pittsburgh, PA. near the intersection of Morgan Road and I-79. PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS The purpose of this project is to enable an existing national cemetery to continue to provide burial services for eligible veterans in southwestern Pennsylvania. The National Cemetery of the Alleghenies serves Veterans of the greater Pittsburgh metropolitan area, northwestern West Virginia, and southeastern Ohio. This proposed development will provide an additional 10 years of continued burial service to an estimated Veteran population of approximately 258,300 who has been served by this national cemetery since it opened in August 2005. This project will provide an additional 10-year gravesite inventory for all burial options until FY 2031. In accordance with the master plan for the entire 292-acre site, this project will develop approximately 40 acres of the 202 undeveloped acres remaining. The design and documentation of this project will be accomplished following the National Cemetery Administration (NCA) Facilities Design Guide and the VA program Guide (PG-18-15, Volume D), A/E Submission Instructions for National Cemetery Projects. The design will culminate in the preparation of contract documents: construction drawings and specifications to be used for competitive bidding. This project will develop approximately 12,300 gravesites, including both casket and cremation sites in new burial sections. Also included in this project will be the cemetery expansion into the southern cemetery parcel bisected by the state-owned Morgan Road. This project will provide for the updating of the Master Plan for the northern (developed) parcel to reflect new developments and project the Master Plan into the remaining southern parcel of the property. While the expansion into this area will require a nominal new entrance feature, grade separated connector drive, access roads, irrigation, signage and furnishings, no structures are planned for this area within this project. This grade separated connector drive will be used by staff, maintenance personnel, and visitors to safely access the southern burial sections across Morgan Road. Within the developed northern acreage, this project will provide for irrigation improvements and some possible gravesite expansion areas (before expanding into the southern parcel). Nominal repairs/ improvements/ security enhancements will be performed to existing cemetery buildings. Unsuitable rock/coal will be excavated from burial areas and removed from the cemetery. An additional, third Committal Shelter will be constructed during this phase of development. This project will also include an evaluation of the existing structures and accomplish and retrofit/incorporate Guiding Principles for High Performance and Sustainable Buildings MOU and Renewable Energy Initiatives as required. Additionally, any FCA condition D or F corrections will be incorporated onto this project. Improvements to the irrigation system shall include expansion into the Phase 3 area, installing an alternate irrigation water source if feasible, and evaluating and correcting deficiencies in the existing system. A full complement of professional A/E design and construction administration disciplines are required including but not necessarily limited to architecture, landscape architecture, civil engineering, structural engineering, physical security specialist, environmental engineering, geo-technical and soils engineering, land surveyor, irrigation designer/water resource planner, construction inspectors, and traffic engineer. Typical services shall include master planning, schematic design, design development, construction documents, construction period services, site visits, record drawings, warranty period consultation, and special studies as required.
