Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) at Kirtland Air Force Base

Defense Logistics Agency, DLA Acquisition Locations | Published September 22, 2015  -  Deadline October 23, 2015
cpvs

DLA Energy will utilize the Department of Energy (DOE) Super Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC) Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) to award a Task Order (TO) for the customer's requirement. The DOE Super ESPC IDIQ contracts were awarded to sixteen Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) based on their capability to meet specified ESPC terms and conditions, with a contract term up to 25 years allowed under 42 USC 8287. Through ESPCs, prequalified ESCOs finance, develop and implement energy conservation measures (ECMs) for federal agencies at no upfront cost to the installation. The return to an ESCO is a contractually determined share of the energy cost savings generated by the ESPC project. Prior to award of a TO, the ESCO conducts a comprehensive energy audit and identifies improvements to avoid facility energy costs and energy related operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. The ESCO guarantees annual cost savings upon implementation of the ECMs and privately finances the investment. The delivery schedule is amortized to allow the federal agency customer to pay for ESCO services and debt service from annual cost savings over the term of the contract. The DOE Super ESPC IDIQ contract will be used to award a TO to design, install, and operate an ESPC project at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico. The purpose for pursing an ESPC project is to help Kirtland reach it mandated energy conservation goals.

The Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center (AFNWC), Kirtland Air Force Base (KAFB), New Mexico 87117, hereby formally announces the intent to award a bridge contract on a sole source basis to Exelis, Inc., 12975 Worldgate Dr., Herndon, VA 20170-6008. This effort has become necessary to continue the requirement and provide mission critical services while the Center is in the process of transitioning the requirement to a competitively awarded contract in December of 2015. The Government anticipates a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract. A description of the current services provided by the incumbent are described below: AFNWC/NDS, Air Delivered Capabilities, Nuclear Systems Integration Division is the primary technical and programmatic office for the coordination of nuclear weapon activities between the Air Force (AF) and the National Nuclear Security Administration-Department of Energy (NNSA-DOE). In addition to being responsible for the sustainment of current AF nuclear weapons, they are also responsible for leading life extension programs (LEPs) for the full spectrum of weapons under their purview. LEPs generally follow the 6.X process for nuclear weapon refurbishment but may also be subject to the rules of the DOD 5000 series acquisitions guidelines for some specific programs. Because of the requirements imposed by both of these processes, along with the daily requirements of sustainment, AFNWC/NDS produces hundreds of technical reports, technical briefings, and technical documents with both classified and unclassified information that are critical to the successful operation of the AF nuclear enterprise each year. The Air Force will conduct a Materiel Solution Analysis (MSA) for the Long Range Standoff (LRSO) capability/system leading up to Milestone A (MS-A). This analysis will be in concert with NNSA, USSTRATCOM, and the other LRSO acquisition stakeholders. This analysis includes LRSO Project Officers Group (POG) activities to provide warhead concept refinement and requirements maturation. It also includes LRSO Weapon System Team (WST) activities to refine and mature concepts and requirements for the overall LRSO weapon system. Activities include integration of LRSO Working Group deliverables into presentations for senior leadership, coordination/facilitation of pre-cursory engagements that will lead to MS-A Defense Acquisition Board (DAB), as well as liaison activities between the acquiring command and the Air Staff and OSD. This integration effort will require certain contracting personnel to reside in Washington, D.C. National Capital Region (NCR) to expedite facilitation/coordination of MS-A activities in order to produce the specific step-by-step statutory and regulatory requirements per DoD Instruction 5000 series, to assist in the program proceeding to the next phase of the acquisition process. The MSA activities support development of a future standoff weapon approach suggested in the Airborne Strategic Deterrent (ABSD) Capabilities-Based Assessment (CBA). The LRSO program is required to fill relevant capability gaps identified in the ABSD Initial Capabilities Document (ICD). The LRSO Materiel Solution Analysis Milestone A preparation study activities will facilitate completion of the LRSO AoA, including ‘briefing out' the AoA findings and iterating final refinement of the AoA Report. The MSA will build upon the data and findings developed and reported by the LRSO AoA. The study activities will support Nuclear Weapons Council (NWC) decisions to proceed with the appropriate phases of the LRSO warhead development as well as the DAB MS-A review of the LRSO materiel approach. The contractor requires a Top Secret and associated facility clearances, a classified and closed work area with classified computers, and the required equipment for a SIPRNet connection at the contractor's facilities. The current position of the AFNWC is to issue a Cost Plus Fixed Fee (CPFF) bridge contract to Exelis Inc. to continue the highly specialized services of Task Order 20 and Task Order 31 under the current CBRNE contract FA9453-09-D-0380 to provide for uninterrupted mission-critical services until the new LPO Support contract, currently in source selection, can be awarded on or about December 2015. The period of performance for the bridge contract is anticipated to be a 3 month base period with three 1 month options, beginning 29 September 2015 to 28 March 2016. The proposed contract action is for services for which the Air Force intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of 10 USC 2304(c)(1) as implemented by FAR 6.302-1(a)(2)(iii)(B). This acquisition is for a three (3) month bridge contract with three (3) one-month options, until a competitive contract can be awarded. This notice of intent is NOT a request for competitive proposals. Requests for copies of a solicitation in response to this notice will not be honored or acknowledged. Interested parties may identify their interest and capability by responding to this requirement via email in Microsoft Word in 3-5 pages to Jennifer Wilterdink, Contracting Officer, jennifer.wilterdink@us.af.mil, Subject Line: Response to Special Notice LPONOI081715 no later than 15 days after the posting of this notice. All information submitted shall be furnished at no cost or obligation to the Government. Responses must be in writing and must provide clear and concise documentation indicating an offeror's bona fide capability to provide these services that would provide the services without a break in service or a negative impact to the mission of the AFNWC. Verbal responses are not acceptable and will not be considered. All responses received by the due date 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. For specific questions, please contact the Contracting Officer, Jennifer Wilterdink, at jennifer.wilterdink@us.af.mil or by telephone at 505-846-5705.

Eggert, Det 8 AFRL/RVKVB, Kirtland AFB, NM, Phone 505-846-7603, Email: Francis.Eggert@us.af.mil . This CALL is specifically requesting potential Offeror(s) to provide proposals on below topics. Note! Each proposal must be submitted against a single Subtopic, even if that proposal partially addresses multiple topics. Offeror may submit multiple proposals to this call. Subtopics 4 A, B, C and F are of a higher programmatic priority, but we expect to fund efforts in most or all topics dependent on the technical quality of the proposals submitted. Subtopic 4 A: Seismic Source Physics: Proposals are sought to improve predictions of source generation of seismic signals, from all shallow source types, that may be used for discrimination and/or yield estimation. Physical understanding of the dependence of seismic source generation on explosion emplacement conditions (depth, scaled depth, decoupling, material properties, pre-stress, and local structure/topography), is of particular interest, especially for small shallow seismic events. Hypothesis tests of proposed mechanisms for anomalous waveform characteristics, e.g. larger surface waves than predicted for explosions, are of interest. Investigations intended to distinguish between feasible source mechanisms are strongly preferred over efforts to assess the feasibility of a single mechanism. Methods of determining depth to within 10s of meters for shallow and very shallow events are of particular interest. Partitioning of energy into P, S, and surface waves, and understanding of the higher frequencies that may be critical for local discrimination are of interest, as are methods that can discriminate chemical from nuclear explosions. Proposals may include one or multiple approaches, and may include analysis of existing nuclear and chemical explosion records, theoretical investigations, laboratory and/or field experiments, and numerical simulations.  Subtopic 4 B: Discrimination and Yield Estimation: Proposals are sought to develop new local (200 km or less) discriminants that take advantage of the characteristics of small shallow events or of local propagation effects. Assessment of extensions of successful regional discriminants to local distances are of particular interest, including investigations of what conditions affect the performance at local distances. Of interest are rigorous assessments of local discriminant performance and uncertainty, and of the physical bases for their success or failure. New understanding of the properties of small seismic events and their seismic waveforms at local and regional (2,000 km or less) distances is of interest, as are improvements in the accuracy of existing discriminants and estimates of their uncertainty and development of new discriminants that have a firm physical and statistical basis. Of particular interest are methods for estimating yield of seismic events recorded at local distances with low uncertainty. At regional distances, there is an interest in improved event characterization of smaller events as well as improved understanding of uncertainties. Methods to improve the accuracy of source characterization by moment tensors and their uncertainties, and new understanding of their limitations are also of interest, especially for smaller events recorded at higher frequencies. Subtopic 4 C: Attenuation and Full Waveform Earth Models: Proposals are sought to improve the prediction of waveforms and amplitudes at local and regional distances. Of particular interest are: local/regional attenuation and scattering models, with emphasis on their ability to match observed amplitudes of Pn, Pg, Sn, and Lg phases, their codas, and surface waves; assessment of the extent and effects of censoring and application of appropriate methods to address censoring; new methods to parameterize models of signal loss and estimate their uncertainties; models that fit multiple datasets (e.g. body wave and surface wave amplitudes), if the potential to improve predictions that affect discrimination can be shown; and proposals that utilize full waveforms and finite-frequency methods as well as methods that account for 3D structural effects on amplitudes. In all cases, a robust estimate of uncertainty is an important consideration (confidence, resolution, and variance). Subtopic 4 D: Velocity Earth Models: Proposals are sought to develop advanced models of the Earth's velocity structure that will improve location capability. Of particular interest are: (1) P-wave velocity structure studies and studies of poorly calibrated regions within Eurasia; (2) new techniques for building models by fitting multiple datasets, especially of different types of data, if the potential to improve predictions that affect location can be shown; (3) techniques to estimate the uncertainty in geophysical models and assess the tradeoffs between different parameters of the models, as well as the uncertainty (confidence, resolution, and variance) in predicted observables, such as travel times; (4) new techniques for determining velocity structure in aseismic regions; (5) studies that compare different methods to show their strengths and weaknesses; and (6) models that can better predict structural effects on seismic amplitudes at 1 Hz and higher as well as travel times. Proposals that utilize full waveforms and finite-frequency methods are of interest. Techniques for accurately predicting P-wave travel times from surface wave based models are of interest. Subtopic 4 E: Location and Discrimination Ground Truth: There is interest in the collection of calibration events at a GT5 level (absolute location and depth errors less than 5 kilometers) or better in uncalibrated or very poorly calibrated areas. Studies that generate new discrimination calibration events, along with source geometry and other characterizing information are also sought. Accurate estimates of depth and origin time and their uncertainties are important elements for location calibration events. Improved techniques for event location using models and/or ground truth at local, regional or near-teleseismic distances, particularly methods that use more than a single type of data jointly are of interest. For multiple data type methods, the potential for improvement in location capability should be demonstrated. Robust estimation of uncertainty is an important consideration.Subtopic 4 F: Data Processing: We seek new and innovative signal processing methods for data from local (less than 200 km) and regional (less than 2,000 km) distances that significantly lower the thresholds at which detection, location and identification functions can be performed at an acceptable false alarm rate. Extension of existing state-of-the art single station and array methods to networks to reduce detection, location and identification thresholds is of interest. Ways to increase the efficiency of the real-time automated process of constructing thousands of unique seismic events to low thresholds from millions of detections on hundreds of seismic sensors, combining local, regional, and teleseismic seismic signals are sought, as are ways to enable the incorporation of orders of magnitude larger seismic networks and seismic data streams, including rapidly changing networks. In particular, ways to reduce the computational burdens of global signal association for event construction for such systems are sought. Tuning studies, either of specific arrays or of techniques in general, are not sought.

Factor III - Pricing Offerors shall provide a firm fixed price to perform the requirements of the attached SOW for the base period and all option periods. The offeror's price will be evaluated to analyze and assess the accuracy and reasonableness of the proposed price and the realism of the proposed price to the Government's independent estimate. EVALUATION OF PROPOSALS: 52.212-2: Evaluation - Commercial Items (Jan 1999)The Government will award a contract resulting from this solicitation to the responsible offeror whose offer conforming to the solicitation will be the best value to the Government- price and other factors considered. Technical and Past Performance, when combined, are significantly more important than Price. Factor I - Technical Approach The offeror will be evaluated on its ability to:1) Demonstrate a clear understanding of the work to be performed 2) Meet the Government's objective3) Deliver key personnel that meets the SOW's qualification requirements, and 4) Perform the tasks and deliverables of the SOW. 5) Recruit/source, onboard, and retain the talent required to perform on this contract.

Factor III - Pricing The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all optionsto the total price for the basic requirement. Evaluation of options will not obligate theGovernment to exercise the options. Offers containing any charges for failure to exercise any option will be rejected. Reasonableness: The Government will evaluate price and determine price reasonableness based on comparative, competitive pricing among the offerors and as compared to the Government's own Independent Cost EstimateThe reasonableness of proposed price and option periods shall also be assessed by the acceptability of the Offeror's methodology used in developing the price estimates. For the price to be reasonable, in its nature and amount, it should be commensurate with what would be incurred by a prudent person in the conduct of a competitive business. . Only reasonable offers will be considered for award. Unreasonably high or low offers present a risk to the government in achieving a best-value solution and, therefore, will not be considered. A written notice of award or acceptance of an offer, mailed or otherwise furnished to the successful offeror within the time for acceptance specified in the offer, shall result in a binding contract without further action by either party. Before the offer's specified expiration time, the Government may accept an offer (or part of an offer), whether or not there are negotiations after its receipt, unless a written notice of withdrawal is received before award.Applicable Provisions: FAR 52.252-2, Clauses Incorporated By Reference (Feb 1998) This contract incorporates one or more clauses by reference, with the same force and effect as if they were given in full text.

(End of Clause) ADDENDUM TO PROVISION FAR 52.212-2 EVALUATION CRITERIA A. PROPOSAL REQUIREMENTS The offeror shall submit a technical proposal volume I, and a price proposal volume II. Source selection will be made on the basis of the technical evaluation of the offeror's demonstration in the proposal that the Shelters proposed meet the technical requirements of the Specification and other evaluation factors. The Basis for Contract Award is specified in paragraph C. below. Pricing proposal shall be submitted utilizing the Schedule of Items described above in "Price Catalog Proposal Volume II" and found in the Statement of Objectives (SOO). Price will be evaluated utilizing the unit prices for 5 year period of Performance. B. EVALUATION FACTORS (1) The technical evaluation will be a qualitative assessment of the offeror's proposed Shelter Turn-Key solutions, capabilities, and the technical information submitted with the proposal to determine if it fully meets the following: 1) Technical Proposal: Acceptable / Not-acceptable 2) Past performance: References for verification of this type experience and performance - Acceptable / Not-acceptable 3) Pricing: Unit price all offerings and 5 year pricing overall - Acceptable / Not-Acceptable 4) Price quote for initial Shelter minimum guarantee - Acceptable / Not-Acceptable 13.6.3 Award of the contract will be based on best value to the Government stated in paragraph 13.6.1 above. 13.6.4 Once the competitive range has been established the Government retains the right to conduct a site visit at some or all of the proposed facilities of the Offerors in the competitive range only. The Government's assessment of the Offerors facilities will be considered, consistent with the evaluation of all factors in paragraph 13.6.1 - 13.6.4 above, in the evaluation of Offeror proposals. PAST PERFORMANCE: Past Performance information describes how well the Offeror has performed the work described in SOO Tasks 1 - 6 of this RFQ and how well the Offeror executed that which was promised in the proposal. (Past Performance is different from "experience" which indicates whether the Contractor has performed the work.) The Government will conduct a performance risk evaluation based upon the past performance of the Offeror and its proposed major subcontractors as it relates to the probability of successfully performing the solicitation requirements. In conducting the performance risk evaluation, the Government may use data provided by the Offeror as well as data obtained from other sources including data obtained from other sources that it considers current and accurate. Evaluation of past performance will be conducted in accordance with FAR Subpart 8.4 as supplemented by Best Practices for Collecting and Using Current and Past Performance Information (May 2000), Office of Federal Procurement Policy. All elements of this criterion below are equal in importance. a) Quality of Services: The Offeror will be evaluated on (1) compliance with contract requirements, (2) standards of good workmanship, (3) accuracy of reports, (4) performance of key individuals, and (5) technical excellence to include quality awards/certificates. b) Schedule: The Offeror will be evaluated on timeliness against (1) contract task orders, (2) milestones, (3) delivery schedules, (4) responsiveness to technical direction, and (5) administrative requirements. c) Cost Control: The Offeror will be evaluated on (1) the ability to perform within or below budget, (2) use of cost efficiencies, (3) relationship to negotiated costs to actuals, (4) submission of reasonably priced change proposals, (5) forecasting accuracy and timeliness, and (6) ability to provide current, accurate, and complete timely billings. d) Business Relations: The Offeror will be evaluated on (1) timeliness of interactions, (2) problem identification completeness and quality, (3) corrective action plans, (4) Contractor's history of reasonable and cooperative behavior, (5) customer satisfaction, (6) timely award and management of subcontracts, and (7) the ability to execute effective management, cooperative and proactive behavior with the Client's Representative(s) and Contracting Officer. e) Management of Key Personnel: The Offeror will be evaluated on quality and effectiveness of (1) selecting, (2) retaining, (3) supporting and, when necessary, (4) replacing Key Personnel. f) Scale: The Offeror will be evaluated on the scale of their Past Performance experience relative to the scope of this requirement. g) Demonstrated Effectiveness of Proposed Solution: The Offeror will be evaluated on the effectiveness of the proposed solution by providing the Government with access to customers of comparable size and complexity who have implemented similar solutions within the past three (3) years. The Government may make an onsite visit to the Contractor's and/or customer's facility to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed solution and the customer's satisfaction with all aspects of the implementation and subsequent performance. Visits to the Customer's facility will be made by the Government unaccompanied by the Offeror. h) Note: In accordance with FAR 15.305, in the case of an Offeror without a record of relevant past performance, the Offeror will not be evaluated either favorably or unfavorably in this area, but instead will receive a neutral rating in the area of past performance. Any proposal determined to clearly not meet the above requirements will be rejected and not further evaluated. (2) Should a proposal for an offered SEND unit be ambiguous as to whether or not it meets the requirements of paragraph (1) above, it will be included in the competitive range pending clarification of the perceived ambiguities. C. BASIS FOR CONTRACT AWARD Offers will be evaluated in accordance with FAR 52.212-2, included in this solicitation. Technical and Past Performance, when combined are equal to price. Written proposals should include a brief technical proposal addressing how the vendor will meet the contract requirements.

This is a full and open market FFP FAR Part 12 Commercial combined synopsis and solicitation for Satellite Emergency Notification Device (SEND) with satellite data service plan, customer support, SOS message monitoring service, and associated Web services for monitoring utilizing FAR Part 13.5. This is a Full and Open Request for Proposal (RFP) under the NAICS Codes 517410 - Satellite Telecommunications. NOTE: The NAICS code for this requirement is 517410 - Satellite Telecommunications. Offerors who don't currently have this code in SAM may propose but will have to have NAICS 517410 added to SAM prior to contract award. See all attached documents.

(3) Acceptable evidence to establish the time of receipt at the Government installation includes the time/date stamp of that installation on the offer wrapper, other documentary evidence of receipt maintained by the installation, or oral testimony or statements of Government personnel. (4) If an emergency or unanticipated event interrupts normal Government processes so that offers cannot be received at the Government office designated for receipt of offers by the exact time specified in the solicitation, and urgent Government requirements preclude amendment of the solicitation or other notice of an extension of the closing date, the time specified for receipt of offers will be deemed to be extended to the same time of day specified in the solicitation on the first work day on which normal Government processes resume.

(h) Certification Regarding Responsibility Matters (Executive Order 12689). (Applies only if the contract value is expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold.) The offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that -- (1) The offeror and/or any of its principals ( ___ ) are, ( ___ ) are not presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency, (2) ( ___ ) Have, ( ___ ) have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a Federal, state or local government contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or state antitrust statutes relating to the submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws, or receiving stolen property; and (3) ( ___ ) Are, ( ___ ) are not presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a Government entity with, commission of any of these offenses enumerated in paragraph (h)(2) of this clause; and (4) ( ___ ) Have, ( ___ ) have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,000 for which the liability remains unsatisfied. (i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply: (A) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted. (B) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection action is precluded. (ii) Examples. (A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. Sec. 6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights.

Sec. 6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. Sec. 6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection.
