1. CONTRACT INFORMATION: This contract is being procured in accordance with the Brooks A-E Act as implemented in FAR Subpart 36.6. Firms will be selected for negotiation based on demonstrated competence and qualifications for the required work of Design and Evaluation Services for Railroads and Roadways, Worldwide [CONUS/OCONUS]. Target two (2) indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts to be negotiated and awarded, with a five year ordering period and $4,500,000 in capacity for each. There will be no task order minimums, and task order maximums will be limited to amount of available remaining contract capacity. Work will be issued by negotiated firm-fixed-price task orders. When two or more indefinite delivery contracts (IDCs) available to the procuring agency contain the same or overlapping scopes of work so that a particular task order might be issued under more than one IDC, the contracting officer will have available for consideration the following factors in deciding which contractor will be selected to negotiate an order: performance and quality of deliverables under the current contract, current capacity to accomplish the order in the required time, professional qualifications necessary for satisfactory performance of required services, uniquely specialized experience and technical competence in the type of work required, and equitable distribution of work among the contractors. For any task order requiring OCONUS work, the Contractor shall visit the Department of State website to view the Treatise in Force at http://www.state.gov/s/l/treaty/tif/index.htm, for any current treaties and other international agreements in place, specific to the country(ies) identified in the task order, as it will be responsible for knowledge of and compliance with such, as may be applicable. Country(ies) where work has been performed thus far via task order(s) under incumbent IDCs for these services include: Bahrain. Future OCONUS performance locations may include Japan, Korea, the Middle East, Turkey and Germany (list may not be all inclusive). North American Industrial Classification System code is 541330, which has a size standard of $15,000,000 in annual average gross receipts over the past three years. This announcement is open to both Small and Other than Small (OTS) service providers. Both Small and OTS Offerors will be evaluated on the extent of participation of small business community (SBC) members in the performance of the acquisition. Offerors are required to meet the minimum mandatory total small business participation objective/target of 20% of total acquisition value to SBC members. Offerors proposing a higher objective/target of 20% will receive a more favorable evaluation. SBC members can propose work they will self-perform toward small business participation objectives. The small business subcontracting goals for this acquisition will be calculated based on the apparent successful Offeror(s)' proposed small business participation objective (i.e. target percentage) of total acquisition value. The following informational percentages for identified small business categories are considered reasonable and achievable for the performance period of the resultant IDCs: a. 40% of planned subcontracting dollars will be placed with all small business concerns (SB); b. 3% of planned subcontracting dollars will be placed with small business concerns owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged concerns (SDB). NOTE: b. is a subset of a. (Count firm in all applicable areas.); c. 7% of planned subcontracting dollars will be placed with small women owned business concerns (WOSB). NOTE: c. is a subset of a.

In accordance with FAR Subpart 19.7 and FAR Clause 52.219-9, if an other-than-small (i.e. 'large') business firm(s) is selected, it will be required to submit a detailed Subcontracting Plan. Submission of such by the selected firm will be required with its price proposal, to be reviewed, negotiated and approved in parallel with the price negotiation (note that Subcontracting Plans are not required from SBCs). The acceptable Subcontracting Plan will be incorporated into the basic IDC award, as a material part of the contract. Minimum negotiated goals, progress and achievement will be monitored and evaluated through the Electronic Subcontracting Reporting System (eSRS). If the contractor fails to comply in good faith with the approved plan, the Contracting Officer may take action in accordance with FAR 52.219-16 'Liquidated Damages - Subcontracting Plan'.
