Liberia Utility Management Option Implementation Planning

Millennium Challenge Corporation, MCC | Published January 7, 2016  -  Deadline January 14, 2016
cpvs

This announcement is a notice of intent to issue a sole source contract under the requirements of FAR Part 15 and FAR 6.302-1," Other Than Full and Open Competition - one responsible source". The Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) intends to issue a sole source, non-commercial for a contractor/consultant to provide expert services to MCC and the Government of Liberia (GoL) to develop an implementation plan for the Liberia Electric Corporations' (LEC) management option. This implementation plan is follow-on work to an analysis of LEC management options presented to the GoL in the Fall of 2015 by McKinsey & Company and this work is intended to support the GoL in meeting the milestones for long term management of LEC laid out in the MCC Compact. This contract is being awarded under the authority of 41 U.S.C. 253(c) (1), as implemented by FAR 6.302-1 - "Only one responsible source" as the only viable course of action that provides uninterrupted continuation of critical services. This contract will be awarded to McKinsey & Company. The period of performance of the contract will be for a period of four months. Justification Pursuant to 41 U.S.C. 253 © (1), FAR 6.302-1, only one Responsible Source and No Other Supplies or Services will Satisfy Agency Requirements in this case because McKinsey has completed the management options study, and they are uniquely qualified for this follow-on work in two ways. First, they have completed the foundational work for this assignment by doing the management options study and have all of the contextual information regarding the state of LEC, stakeholders and the challenges in the sector and they have developed relationships with key players. Second, they bring excellent technical expertise and resources for this assignment, as demonstrated during the management options study. Specifically, in the analysis of potential private sector options, they have demonstrated deep experience in analysis of utilities and identifying and structuring private sector participation for management of utilities. Competition: The McKinsey contract with USAID was competed but as McKinsey is uniquely qualified for this work, no additional offers were solicited. Market Research: The McKinsey contract with USAID was competed but as McKinsey is uniquely qualified for this work, no additional offers were solicited DESCRIPTIONS / SPECIFICATIONS / STATEMENT OF WORK LIBERIA UTILITY MANAGEMENT OPTION - IMPLEMENTATION PLANNING A. INTRODUCTION The Government of Liberia (GoL), requires consultancy services to develop an implementation plan for a selected management option for the Liberia Electric Corporations' (LEC). This implementation plan is follow-on work to an analysis of LEC management options presented to the GoL in the Fall of 2015 by McKinsey & Company and this work is intended to support the GoL in meeting the milestones for long term management of LEC laid out in the MCC Compact. B. BACKGROUND In 2003, after the end of a 14-year conflict, infrastructure in Liberia was largely destroyed, and the electricity sector in particular required significant investment. The Mount Coffee Hydropower Plant, the main source of electricity generation, and the country's distribution network were looted and the utility lacked capacity to manage the reconstruction. Since that time, emergency power programs have supported the installation of diesel generators which provide 22MW of capacity. However, this generation is both insufficient to meet demand and very expensive. To bring on additional capacity, with the support of international donors including MCC, Mt. Coffee is currently being rehabilitated, which will contribute an additional 88MW to the system in the wet season, and Heavy Fuel Oil plants are under construction to contribute an additional 48MW. To support capacity at LEC, the GoL, with assistance from international partners, tendered a management contract to provide additional technical and managerial capacity and also to provide specific project management assistance for the reconstruction of Mt. Coffee. This management contract was awarded to Manitoba Hydro International (MHI) in April 2010. The contract period was originally for five years, but was later extended to seven years, in particular to provide additional support for the reconstruction of Mt. Coffee. The current funding for the management support portion of the MHI contract ends in December 2016, although a decision will need to be made about whether and how to extend the project management support for the reconstruction of Mt. Coffee, which is not expected to be fully complete until the end of 2017. During the summer and fall of 2015 McKinsey and Company conducted an assessment of LEC management options for GoL review, and identified several potential options for long-term management of LEC. This options study was in preparation for a series of decision points laid out in the MCC Compact regarding the GoL's decision for long term LEC management that are specified in the Compact as follows: • By February 1, 2016, and prior to any Disbursement of MCC Funding under the Energy Project on or after such date, the Government must have communicated in writing to MCC, a selected management arrangement for LEC, and MCC and the Government will have agreed on such arrangement. • By March 15, 2016, and prior to any Disbursement of MCC Funding under the Energy Project on or after such date the Government must have submitted to MCC a management implementation plan approved and adopted by the Board of Directors of LEC with a schedule of milestones for the implementation of the selected management arrangement, including any required interim arrangement for the management of LEC prior to the implementation of the selected management arrangement, in form and substance satisfactory to MCC. • Prior to each Disbursement of MCC Funding under the Energy Project following the adoption of the management implementation plan, the Government must have submitted evidence, in form and substance satisfactory to MCC, that LEC is implementing such plan and is in compliance with the requirements of the plan. C. OBJECTIVE The Contractor shall develop an implementation plan for the management option selected by the GoL, for use by the GoL and MCC during the course of the Compact. The consultant shall also develop the terms of reference for follow-on work either by a transaction advisor in the case of a private sector participation option for management of LEC or for technical assistance in the case of a publicly managed option. D. TASKS The contractor shall perform the following tasks: Task 1: Mobilization Plan and Workplan The consultant will provide a Mobilization Plan to include, at a minimum, the resources required for mobilizing the required team and an associated timeline. A workplan, to include a schedule and description of the tasks to be completed will also be provided. Task 2: Development of Implementation Plan Based on GoL selection of their preferred approach, the consultant should develop an implementation plan for the selected strategy. The plan deliverable will include a narrative explaining each of the areas below, a workplan laid out according to quarters of the MCC Compact, financial model, and relevant Terms of Reference for follow-on work. This plan will cover not just the implementation of the long-term management option, but will also account for the short-term measures that are required in order to improve performance at LEC and prepare it for the long-term selected option. This plan will include the following analysis depending on the option selected: • Key Structuring Principles: 1. Public Management Option: In the case of a public management option, the consultant will lay out a clear implementation plan for GoL capacity reinforcement. This will include (a) identification of the areas of weakness to be supported by a consultant (b) the key positions at LEC that would be supported (c) term of the consultancy and, (d) expected outcomes 2. Management Contract: In the case of a proposed management contract, the consultant will identify: (a) relevant Key Performance Indicators (KPIs); b) incentive package for the private operator; (c) responsibilities of the parties and delegation of power of the private operator; (d) operating framework between the GoL, LEC and any outside operators; (e reporting requirements; and (e) term of the contract. 3. Concession Structuring Principles: In the case of a concession, identify: (a) investment obligations; (b) performance improvements and related indicators; and (c) term of the concession/lease. 4. Restructuring: In the case of any restructuring of the electricity sector, the consultant will lay out a) a clear statement of responsibilities of each institution in the sector and (b) workplan and timeline for the restructuring • Financial Analysis: The consultant will prepare financial models to structure the arrangement, define proper performance technical and financial indicators, and ensure that the proposal being developed is commercially viable and satisfies the GoL's objective of improving access to energy, near term management of LEC as well as longer-term capacity at LEC. • Market Analysis: The consultant will also conduct market consultations, in partnership with the GoL, where appropriate, to determine market interest and the conditions that would need to be in place to enable the management arrangement in the electricity sector and to understand market requirements. • Procurement Approach: For all options, but particularly in the case of a management contract or concession, the consultant will specify the recommended procurement approach to maximize the chances of success. • Indicator Analysis: The consultant will recommend key performance indicators that can be used to monitor the health and performance of LEC. These recommendations will draw on the findings the original options analysis with other indicators the consultant might identify as relevant, and discuss each indicator's strengths and weakness with respect to monitoring LEC's performance. Task 3: GoL and Stakeholder Workshops for Plan Finalization Upon development of the draft implementation plan, hold workshops with the LEC Board, MLME and subsequently interested donors in the sector to confirm the feasibility of the approach laid out.

Services are being procured under FAR 13.5 Simplified Acquisition Procedures. The FBI is often faced with questions from the law enforcement and intelligence communities regarding the effects of improvised explosives. An extremely efficient method of directly visualizing and analyzing the formation and development of shock waves and their interaction is to use a high speed camera. The Vision Research Phantom M310 would provide the FBI with a dedicated high speed camera to accomplish the task of capturing the details of the detonation event of an improvised explosive on video. Additionally this camera is the only camera that is compatible with existing testing equipment already acquired from SMS, hence the need to procure these camera from the same source. The FBI has a need to procure 3 Vision Research Phantom M310 high speed camera systems as well as high speed camera mounting brackets, on behalf of the TEDAC Improvised Explosives Detection and Synthesis (TIEDS) Center located at the Redstone Arsenal campus in AL. The requirements for the analysis capability officered by the Vision Research Phantom M310 are listed in the attached file with the technical specifications. Market research has determined that there is the potential for other high speed cameras but the TIEDS has a specific need for the Vision Research Phantom M310 high speed camera, and SMS is the only authorized vendor, therefore these specific products can only be provided by SMS. This notice of intent is not a request for competitive quotations; however, interested parties may identify their interest and capabilities to respond to this requirement or submit proposals to this office by 5:00PM EST, 29 April 2016, by e-mail to the attention of Eliana York, Contracting Officer, at eliana.york@ic.fbi.gov.

PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE CAREFULLY AS IT CONSTITUTES THE ONLY NOTICE THAT WILL BE PUBLISHED. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intends to negotiate a one-time sole source contract with LDV, INC., 180 Industrial Drive, Burlington, WI 53105. The Government intends to negotiate with only one source under the authority of FAR 6.302-1. This notice will be distributed through the General Services Administration's Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) Website (www.fedbizopps.gov). Interested parties are responsible for monitoring the FBO site to ensure they have the most up-to-date information about this acquisition. The North American Classification System Code is 336120 Heavy Duty Truck Manufacturing; the size standard is 1000 employees. Services are being procured under FAR 13.5 Simplified Acquisition Procedures. The FBI's Evidence Response Team Unit (ERTU) has a requirement for a modification to be done on the lighting package of a custom built medium duty tool truck, used in response to crime scenes. The truck was originally purchased in 2014 from LDV. Inc. and was designated for delivery to San Juan, Puerto Rico. Upon delivery, it was learned that the emergency lighting package included with the vehicle was not sufficient for the San Juan location, since Puerto Rico has its own specific standards applicable to law enforcement vehicles. The light package, which currently has both red and blue lights, has to be modified to have the red lights removed and replaced with a blue lights only set up. Due to warranty of the custom manufactured truck, the original manufacturer, LDV Inc., must modify the lighting package. Market research has determined that there is the potential for other commercial custom entities to carry out the modification, however, LDV Inc. manufactured the original truck, and procuring services from the same company will keep the existing warranty associated with this procurement. This notice of intent is not a request for competitive quotations; however, interested parties may identify their interest and capabilities to respond to this requirement or submit proposals to this office by 5:00PM EST, 23 June 2016, by e-mail to the attention of Eliana York, Contracting Officer, at eliana.york@ic.fbi.gov.

This is a Notice of Contract Action (NOCA) and is not a Solicitation or Request for Proposal (RFP). Responses to this NOCA are strictly voluntary with no cost or obligation to be incurred by the Government. The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, Armament Directorate, Direct Attack Division, Hard Target Munitions Branch intents to award a sustainment contract for up to three (3) years to the Boeing Company located at 6200 James S Mcdonnell Blvd, Saint Louis, MO 63134 in support of the GBU-57 Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP) system. The GBU-57 system is composed of BLU-127 warhead, KMU-612 tailkit, BRU-72/B bomb rack systems, ADU-916/E MOP Loading Adaptor, MXU-1012/B separation nuts, ground support equipment, separation nut simulators and associated training items. The Period of Performance is expected to be approximately January 2016 through January 2019. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code for this effort is 334511; with a small business size standard of 750 employees. The Government intends to solicit and negotiate with only one source under the authority of FAR 6.302-1. This NOCA neither constitutes a Request for Proposal (RFP) or Invitation for Bid (IFB), nor does it restrict the Government to any specific acquisition approach. This NOCA is for information and planning purposes only and is not to be construed as a commitment to a contract by the Government. The contractor shall: (a) provide technical engineering support for the resolution of GBU-57 system issues; (b) develop a plan, process, and product to assess safety, reliability, logistics and provisioning support for the GBU-57 system; (c) functionally test, troubleshoot, and provide depot level repair of the GBU-57 system; (d) provide updates to the source data for MOP related technical orders; (e) respond with personnel support within 24 hours of notification from the MOP PCO for support; and (f) provide engineers and technicians with a SECRET level clearance in accordance with Industrial Security Manual (DoD 5220.22M) by contract award. Furthermore, the Statement of Capability should provide evidence that the contractor has: (a) engaged in this type of weapon contractor support for at least 2 years; (b) successfully managed and maintained professional support to customers for at least 2 years [submit names, addresses, and phone numbers of references and a point of contact for each]; (c) possesses or has access to the necessary equipment, data, personnel, repair facilities and financial resources to fulfill the requirements of efforts to support the MOP Weapon System; and (d) the experience and capability to accomplish the systems engineering, maintenance and repair efforts required for the MOP Weapon System. In addition to the technical challenges of this planned contract, proprietary data is involved for which the Government has only limited rights. Therefore, the Government does not possess, and will not be able to provide a technical data package to potential offerors relative to the GBU-57 MOP system. An Ombudsman has been appointed to address concerns of potential sources. The Ombudsman does not diminish the authority of the program manager or contracting officer, but communicates contractor concerns, issues, disagreements, and recommendations to the appropriate Government personnel. When requested, the Ombudsman shall maintain strict confidentiality as to the source of the concern. The Ombudsman does not participate in the evaluation of proposals or in the source selection process. Matters of routine or administrative nature concerning this acquisition should not be addressed to the Ombudsman, but rather to the contracting point of contact identified below. The Ombudsman is Ms. Jill Willinghamallen, AFLCMC/AQP, phone 937-255-5472. Interested and capable sources are encouraged to respond to this synopsis with a Statement of Capability. In addition to a Statement of Capabilities, firms responding to this announcement should include company name, CAGE code, point of contact, address, and indicate whether they are a small business, 8(a) concern, veteran-owned small business, service-disabled veteran-owned business, HUBZone small business, small disadvantaged business, or women-owned small business.
