This MATOC will have a combined capacity of $44,000,000.00. The full $44,000,000.00 will be available for the base year and any remaining funds will carry over once the option years are exercised. The options may be exercised at the discretion of the Government. Since more than one contract will be awarded as a result of this announcement for the same or similar work, selection for task order awards will be made as follows: (1) All awardees will be given a fair opportunity to be considered for each task order award in excess of $2,500. (2) In making selection of the awardee to receive a specific task order, the Contracting Officer will consider past performance of previous task orders, quality of previous task orders, timeliness of previous task orders, cost control, the firm's strength and previous experience in relation to the work requirements and geographic location described in the statement of work for each task order. Details of the selection process will be included in the resultant contracts. All interested Architect-Engineers are reminded that in accordance with the provisions of FAR Sections 19.7, 52.219-8, 52.219-9 or equivalent DFARS Sections, they will be expected to place subcontracts to the maximum practicable extent consistent with the efficient performance of the contract with small and small disadvantaged business. The wages and benefits of service employees (see FAR 22.1) performing under these contracts must be at least equal to those determined by the Department of Labor under the Service Contract Act, as determined relative to employee's office location (not the location of the work). To be eligible for contract award a firm or joint venture must be registered in the System or Award Management (SAM). Register via the Internet Site at https://www.sam.gov. If a large business firm is selected for one of these contracts, it will be required to submit a detailed subcontracting plan at a later date.

If a large business is selected it must comply with FAR 52-219.9 regarding the requirement to subcontract. Sacramento District's recommended goal for work intended to be subcontracted is 41.5% for small business. The goal further states that of the 40.08% to be subcontracted to small business, 21.69% is for small disadvantaged business (subset to small business), 7.33% is for small business/woman owned (subset to small business), 5.58% for HUBZone small business (subset to small business), 3.0% for veteran-owned small business and 4.97% is for service-disabled veteran-owned small business (subset to small business). If the selected firm submits a plan with lesser goals, it must submit written rationale of why the above goals are not met. Firms should indicate personnel and subcontracts selected to work on the contract and state their management structure. Contractor Performance Evaluations: In accordance with the provisions of Subpart 36.604 (Performance Evaluation of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), A-E contractors performance shall be evaluated throughout the performance of the contract. The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) follows the procedures outlined in Engineering Pamphlet (EP) 715-1-7 to fulfill this FAR requirement. Performance evaluations will be prepared in the Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS), which is a web-based system. The Architect-Engineer Contract Administration Support System (ACASS) was previously used, and CPARS is now the current platform. Engineering Pamphlet (EP) 715-1-7, Chapter 6 has not been updated, as yet to reflect this change. Past performance evaluations shall be prepared for each architect-engineer services contract of $35,000 or more. A final evaluation will be prepared for each task order exceeding $35,000.00. For this procurement, the evaluation shall be prepared after acceptance of the A-E product on each task order. Past performance evaluations may also be prepared for contracts below $35,000. After an evaluation (interim or final) is written up by the USACE, the contractor will have the ability to access, review and comment on the evaluation for a period of 30 days. Accessing and using CPARS requires specific software, called PKI certification, which is installed on the user's computer. The certification is a Department of Defense requirement and was implemented to provide security in electronic transaction. The certification software could cost approximately $100-$120 per certificate per year and is purchased from External Certificate Authorities (ECA) vendors. Current information about the PKI certification process and for contracting vendors can be found on the web site http://www.cpars.gov. If the contractor wishes to participate in the performance evaluation process, access to CPARS and PKI certification is the sole responsibility of the Contractor. 2.

SELECTION CRITERIA: The selection criteria are listed below in descending order of importance. Criteria" a" through "d" are primary. Criteria "e" through "f" are secondary and will only be used as tiebreakers among technically equal firms. a. Specialized Experience and technical competence. The A-E must provide examples of not more than ten (10) projects completed within the last 5 years that best demonstrate specialized experience and technical competency in the areas listed below. Project examples submitted should be of completed projects. All projects cited must identify start/complete dates as well as the project size (cost and scope). Please also provide the percentage of work completed by the prime contractor. Prime Contractor's that do not have specific experience in the following types of tasks will be evaluated based on their subcontractors' experience. However, projects where the prime performed 50% or more of the work with in-house forces will be weighted more heavily than projects performed predominantly by proposed subcontractors.      1. Capability and recent experience in Military or IIS project studies and designs involving facilities such as: barracks, warehouses, storage facilities, administrative facilities, medical facilities, training facilities, maintenance facilities, aircraft hangers, aircraft runways/taxiways/aprons, roadways, utilities, energy reduction and renewable energy projects, and waterfront facilities. Experience with conceptual level studies/design for programming purposes, preparation of Design Build requirement packages, as well as final design (plans and specification for construction) is preferred.      2. Capability and experience with services in support of design, such as acquisition of geotechnical (explorations), topographic survey, utility survey, material testing results, design reviews (quality control and constructability), economic analysis, life cycle cost analysis, environmental documents and assessment of environmental impacts, cost engineering (using MCACES), GIS and CADD/BIM capability.      3. Work experience within the South Pacific Division boundaries, and particularly inside the Sacramento District boundaries will be considered in determining the most highly qualified firms. b. Firms must demonstrate professional and specialized experience for key disciplines. Evaluation of professional qualifications will consider education, training, certifications, registration, relevant experience and longevity with the firm of key technical personnel (3-year minimum is preferable). Project related experience of new employees with the firm will be considered. Experience in the discipline in which he/she will be working on should be identified. (SF 330, Part I, Sections E and G). Qualified professional personnel who are certified, registered and highly trained in the following key disciplines: Project Management, Architectural, Civil, Structural, Electrical, Mechanical, Geotechnical, Landscape Architect, Cost Engineering, Topographic Surveys, LEED Accredited Professionals, Geographic Information Specialist, CADD/BIM (Revit) Operator, Environmental Specialist and Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH). c. Past performance of the Prime A-E firm must be provided on all projects submitted in section a. above, Specialized Experience and Technical Competence criteria. The prime A-E firm shall provide a reference using the Past Performance Questionnaire (PPQ), attached to this announcement, and/or a final Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS) report. The prime A-E is responsible for forwarding the PPQ to each past performance reference submitted under this synopsis. The submitting A-E firm should complete blocks 1-4 of the PPQ and the client/customer should complete blocks 5-8 and the evaluation survey. The client/customer should return the PPQ to the firm to be submitted with the SF330 or send, via email, the PPQ directly to the Government point of contact identified in this synopsis. PPIRS may be queried for all prime, Joint Venture (JV) and key subcontractors. In addition to the above, the Government may review any other sources of information for evaluating past performance. In the event that adverse past performance information is obtained outside the PPIRS query and the A-E firm did not have the opportunity to respond, the A-E firm will have the opportunity to respond. Or if the adverse past performance is the reason why the firm is not selected as one of the most highly qualified, the A-E firm will have the opportunity to comment. If CPARS evaluations are not available or are so sparse no meaningful rating can be reasonably assigned, the A-E firm will be assigned "neutral" rating and shall not be rated favorably or unfavorably. d. Capacity to accomplish multiple simultaneous task orders at different locations within the required timeframe, including professional qualifications of firm's staff and subcontractors to be assigned to the projects which are necessary for satisfactory performance in the required time. Firms must demonstrate the capacity to accomplish multiple task orders simultaneously. e.

Up to four firms will be selected for negotiation based on demonstrated competence and qualifications for the required work. A-E services are required to provide the full spectrum of design disciplines on all or portions of Civil Works projects. The primary emphasis of A-E services will focus on Civil Works Projects; however, design services may also include construction phase services (CPS), Military Construction (MILCON) and Hazardous Toxic Radiological Waste (HTRW) projects. Task orders issued under this contract may range in scope from a small study to a new project design for Civil Works projects. The design services may include design of new facilities and/or modification/improvement of existing facilities. Demolition of existing facilities may require provisions for abatement of asbestos and/or lead based paint removal to be included in the design documents which in turn would require A-E investigation to be done. A specific scope of work and services will be issued with each task order. This procurement will be conducted under FSC Code: C219; SIC Code: 8711; NAICS Code: 541330. The size standard for this code is $15,000,000.00. Up to four contracts will be negotiated and will be awarded within one year after the required response date to this announcement. Firm Fixed Price (FFP), Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts will be negotiated. These contracts will be for a period of performance of up to five (5) years, consisting of a base contract period of three (3) years and an option to extend the contract term by an additional two (2) years. This MATOC will have a combined capacity of $35,000,000.00. The full $35,000,000.00 will be available for the base year and any remaining funds will carry over once the option years are exercised. The options may be exercised at the discretion of the Government. Since more than one contract will be awarded as a result of this announcement for the same or similar work, selection for task order awards will be made as follows: (1) All awardees will be given a fair opportunity to be considered for each task order award in excess of $2,500. (2) In making selection of the awardee to receive a specific task order, the Contracting Officer will consider past performance of previous task orders, quality of previous task orders, timeliness of previous task orders, cost control, the firm's strength and previous experience in relation to the work requirements and geographic location described in the statement of work for each task order. Details of the selection process will be included in the resultant contracts. All interested Architect-Engineers are reminded that in accordance with the provisions of FAR Sections 19.7, 52.219-8, 52.219-9 or equivalent DFARS Sections, they will be expected to place subcontracts to the maximum practicable extent consistent with the efficient performance of the contract with small and small disadvantaged business. The wages and benefits of service employees (see FAR 22.1) performing under these contracts must be at least equal to those determined by the Department of Labor under the Service Contract Act, as determined relative to employee's office location (not the location of the work). If a large business firm is selected for one of these contracts, it will be required to submit a detailed subcontracting plan at a later date. A detailed plan is not required to be submitted with the SF 330; however, the plans to do so should be specified in block H of the SF 330. If a large business is selected it must comply with FAR 52-219.9 regarding the requirement to subcontract. Sacramento District's recommended goal for work intended to be subcontracted is 41.5% for small business.
